I am using this phone over a year now, and no issues of any kind. Great battery life, great camera. Stop all crapware that you don't need. So, stop complaining! If you after a super gamer spend some real cash.

I'm done with this piece of crap! bought in April 2017, battery life below average, so much heating even in normal use, cannot use this phone without cover due to burn like feel in back panel. In my opinion, Snapdragon 4XX series processors are shit! Never buy phones who has SD 4XX processors- so much heat generation, crappy processing power, inefficient battery life! Insted of your wasting money on SD 4XX wait some time add some extra money and buy SD 6XX (you'll never regret!). I'm exchanging this phone and going to buy Asus Max pro M1 (got a sweet deal).
Not a scratch resistant glass at all. On some webpages is written it's got Gorilla Glass but it does not. It's super easy to scratch! So weird... supposedly cheaper Moto E4 does use Gorilla Glass! Also I don't like built in phone app - does not allow saving just to phone's memory, when opened it does not show keyboard and recent numbers as most of my previous phones did. It shows 'favourites' instead. Does not offer by default sharing screen to a smart tv (apart from using chromecast) like some other phones do although I'm probably getting picky here. On the plus side - removable battery (big plus! It's been so rare recently!), decent cameras, ok battery life, decent price (at least I got a good deal). Just remember to put a screen protector on before using it for the first time!
Carl, 31 Mar 2018Worst phone ever. Unreliable. Restarts frequently. It does not get security patches regularly.... moreIf you phone restarts all the time randomly, disable Google Now.
It's not Motorola, it's Google that craps out (same as G4, where you can't disable it so thoroughly).
For 99 eur (122 USD) even better. That's what they sell it on bargain here nowadays.
Very nice price / performance ratio.
if someone complains from the battery drain (especially after system update) , try to make "reset apps preference " from settings>> apps . it worked for me and the battery is now last for long time.
Anonymous, 16 Apr 2018Camera is good but the most ridiculous thing about moto phones is their screen to body ratio, ... moreMoto G5 released in March 2017 and you are commenting such issue in 2018. try latest versions for larger screen to body ratio.
Camera is good but the most ridiculous thing about moto phones is their screen to body ratio, I mean bezels are way more than any other phone compared to other brands within same price bracket and the other thing is their camera bump is so big and design is ugly ,moto is good in the hands of google moto g5 (3rd gen) is way more promising design is so good , 4th gen is ok but design is still ugly and 5th gen is ridiculously ugly, now looking for 6th maybe they broke thier own records in terms of ugliness ,in leaks bezels are way more than other 18:9 phones and for updates we have seen how faster they update their phones,so moto is not promising in the hands of Lenovo
why would you pay more. This phone does what every I need and then some.
For $200 USA it's the biggest bargen out there.

I had this phone for 2 and a half months now and I'm very very happy:
The first thing is that is CHEAP and that's very important before starting the comparison....
Awesome screen. Very good pictures, unless you use the zoom option. Work fast (I have the 3GB version). Can heat a lot with some big apk. The battery charge fast and last through the day with intense use. Good mobile reception but sometimes disconnect and connect again from WIFI without a reason.
I'm a little clumsy so let's say it has suffered many many falls and hits that could all been fatal... BUT not even a scratch in the screen, even if the metal back show some.
Too bad the update to 8 is taking forever to come.

Worst phone ever. Unreliable. Restarts frequently. It does not get security patches regularly. Obsolete Android version. At this price level this is the worst phone I have ever used.
