My mom is using this phone almost 2 years but after last update battery cant hold whole day. I checked non app is using battery in background. Also what i noticed it is always warm even if she is not using it. I tried restart battery (10 sec power off button hold) it was ok one week and after that it back to fast battery drain. She is only using Viber and FB. Have anyone idea what to do? Same experience?
She loves this phone but if we can’t fix it she need to change it
willow, 24 Jul 2020Less than two years and the phone locks up almost daily, very slow. From the very beginning it... moreI agree. For me, it's the worst phone i've ever owned. It freezes, turns itself off, emails freeze, the phone doesn't ring even when it's turned up loud, notifications never come through. I could go on, but i think you get my drift!
First and last Motorola i'll ever own, i'll be going back to Samsung very very soon.
My first Motorola phone, it lasted 2 years and keeps on going without any performance problems, overheating or sudden shut downs. I didn't made any updates, I stick with android 8 and it worked good. Now I tried the 9 for curiosity sake and it works fine, maybe a bit faster.
Great practical phone, I love Motorola's Moto actions(check that out), battery life is super, fast charging, camera is not that great of course especially in low light. Anyway I would definitely recommend this phone.

Anonymous, 28 Jul 2020Just a testament to the phone that ended my daily smartphone battery life fears. The phone is ... moreDon't trrow it away. The android 9.0 works great on it and it will have an android 10.0 GSI ROM soon. Also there is going to have an official twrp for it too.
I've had this phone 4 about 2 yrs & nvr had a problem it works just as good as the day I bought it! well worth the money but I'm thinking ov getting the moto G7 power or moto G 5G plus can anyone let me know wot they think about getting either 1 ov these phones at all
Just a testament to the phone that ended my daily smartphone battery life fears. The phone is still usable two years on, however the major drawback of this phone will probably haunt me later when I see the two years I had with a really bad camera. The camera is so bad you swear it is to make the phone less desirable. And sadly g7s got the same hardware on the cheaper options like the play and whatever they were named.
Every phone and brand I have had has had a drawback, really, my next one will probably be another small one like the pixel 3a, I fear I will gain an amazing camera but lose a monster battery life. My battery might have degraded, but it does not affect my days with 4-6h screen time and the first phone in ages I did not buy a spare battery for.
This phone is also splash proof and the first phone to fall out of my pocket and get trapped for several minutes in freshwater with no issues. 3a will have none of that, but that was an outlier thing.
It's a great phone considering the price m
Less than two years and the phone locks up almost daily, very slow. From the very beginning it was difficult to talk on because the sound is distorted and very low quality. Using speakerphone is useless because nobody can hear you. Very very disappointed in this phone.
Compliment ...I got my Moto G6 play from my UK, it's about 2years now but I can't send sms. What's the reason and possible solution?
Bannu urce, 27 May 2020Will be 2 years in August. When I bought it ,it was so awesome for the price, smooth and I ... morehey there if its becomr slow like mine did , back up all your data and do a factory reset , this helped mine out!
Will be 2 years in August.
When I bought it ,it was so awesome for the price, smooth and I liked how it offered screen In screen option for maps and YouTube in USA. Very convenient.
This days it's become a bit slow. Not sure it's my fault. As I download lot of torrents and third party apps and I use it with 64gb mem card. Format it every 3 months on an average. Booting time is really bad. I fear accidentally restarting,coz it takes around 10 minutes to restart. If the apps don't become too slow I might keep using it for more than 2 years. The battery hasn't gone bad yet . And when I finally upgrade after a long time , that feeling will be awesome.
Finally after two years (almost) I received the pie update on reteu channel.
I wonder if my contact with lenovo support center had anything to do with it . Let's see how it behaves. Still a great phone
I have had Motorola moto g6 play for half a year and it still works great, I like the battery life and games works better then on xiomi, it is really durable phone, I drop it accidentally so much times but still everything fine :D
I have had a G6 Play for a couple of years now and recently purchased a G-6 as well. I am very happy with it, it's performance and it's battery life and speaker sound. I'm not a power user but I do a lot with this phone and for the price it simply can not be beat. The G-phone product line has been rated one of the best phones in it's price range for consistently now for at least the last two years by almost every established respected Tech journal mag out there. The only problem I am aware of is it's wireless speed. Lately, both my G6 and the G6 play only transmits at a speed of about 48 mbps. This has been a known issue for a little while now and so far there is no fix. In my day to day use I haven't noticed a difference in performance but I can see that being an issue for many power user. However, power users would be better served by a flag ship model anyhow.
Motorola G6 Play is not worth it, too slow. Slow right out of the box. 1 year later and it is almost unusable\. There are hardly apps on it, has plenty of storage remaining (
I hated this phone for the first couple months i owned it. I bought it to replace my broken Galaxy S9. It failed to stand up to the challenge... at first.
I have the 2gb ram version on Verizon (not VerizonPrepaid) and the service sometimes goes out. But my real problem was the lag/apps not responding. So i added an SD card, and selected the option to format the sd card as internal storage, and moved my apps/files to sd card. I already had enabled 'force apps to sd card' through the Developer Options.
I also added Evie Launcher, which helped the home interface feel faster.
I bought the phone after seeing reviews that it was the best budget phone available, i used it for a couple months and hated it, made a couple changes to how i have it set up, and now its everything is much more responsive(keyboard, fingerprint sensor, app loading, internet page loading, youtube videos, etc). I can confirm the other reviews, it is indeed a great budget phone, feels more like a solid mid-tier device.
I totally agree with you. This phone is crap! I got it to replace my Chinese listening device a.k.a. Huawei Elate. After 6 months of daily use on the Moto G6 I have gone back to using the Huawei!
The stock Phone and Camera apps are trash.
The bluethooth is spotty.
Voice commands only work once and then I have to re-boot the phone.
I love Cricket Wireless - it's $100 a month for 4 lines of unlimited talk/text/data.
But this the last "pre-paid" phone I'm ever buying.
You can get a better phone from eBay for $100 that is better than this piece of trash.
Sorry I just had to get that off my chest.
This phone is great. Does what it's supposed to. I haven't loaded games or apps and stuff. It feels like a workhorse, no cutesy stuff, all business.
I recently fell into a 6' hole full of water. I got out within seconds, completely dripping wet. I took out my phone, and took pictures of stuff. I called my co-worker. I called my bosses. An hour later i was home, cold and wet and sad, and wondering what to do about the phone. Since it's so compact and all the internals are bolted in, there wasn't much i could do in a hurry.
Well. The camera and flash don't work now. sending pics does not work either (because it launches the camera SW when one selects pics...and the camera is shot).
However, i can still make clear phone calls, txt msg, and surf the web.
I've ordered another one.
