Havnt owned a Motorola since the V525 (the flip phone). I'm genuinely satisfied all round with this phone. Good battery life, super fast charging, good cameras,nice big screen and very well priced.
I don't understand why there are so many bad opinions on thread. If your looking for a good android phone with very little bloatware at a decent price, please consider this handset. 10/10 @Motorola/Lenovo
Just bought one and it's awesome. Didn't had any problems and runs smoothly, I've paid 159£ in UK unlocked, it's a bang for a buck if you're asking me, let's see how well will perform after some time....

Manoj, 06 Jun 2018How it would be to exchange with moto g3.Is moto g6 play better than g3I loved my G3 wish I'd kept it now
Why will someone buy this device with such low specs for such a high price and when you already know lenovo is going to destroy it with their updates.
How it would be to exchange with moto g3.Is moto g6 play better than g3
I've was sent an email on May 30th to pre-order this. I had the original Moto G and liked it. I now have G4 and have had an assortment of issues, mostly involving sound tones. When adjusting phone sound on the slide bar in set up, it barely makes a sound, so it's hard to tell what the volume is, though it does ring when I get a call, so that's more important. There is of course no notification light like the original Moto G had and this always notifies me of texts, but only sometimes notifies me of emails until I pick it up and then one or more will suddenly come through with a sound. I've missed some important messages, but maybe people should use these as phones more before we forget how to communicate verbally! Without the notification light, this has been a long ongoing problem. I want to upgrade, but a little cautious after this one and why the lower screen resolution?!
Whats the use of releasing such outdated phone in G series, never recommend this to anyone if these are official specs. better is to buy G3 than this ...moto gone crazy or wt??
MOTOROLA NEVER AGAIN.
After owning Motorola's since the first Moto X (when it was Google) and recommending it to a lot of people, I'm done with them.
Recently my girlfriend Moto Z Power Edition started to have several issues with the battery just 2 months after the warranty was over.
I contacted some technical services specialized in replacing batteries to ask how much would cost to replace it and they DENIED doing the service because they had done this on literally hundreds of Moto Z in the past months and after 1 or 2 months the phones came again with the same problem, which indicates it's a hardware failure and not the battery itself.
So I went out to research about it on specialized sites we have here in Brazil about user complain / reviews and found out a MASSIVE number of reports (literally thousands) with this same issue across our country, which indicates a batch manufacturing problem.
And this appears to be not exclusive to Moto Z but also some Moto G5 / G5S and E line, so basically all lines from Motorola.
I then contacted Motorola and Lenovo customer service to ask if they were aware of this and how they are handle it, and they just ignored me over and over and over, and to this day there's hundreds of complains not answered and my requests are being ignored, because here the laws do nothing to protect the customer.
So, FOR ME, Motorola never again. It doesn't matter if the phones are good, a company that doesn't acknowledge a massive issue like this and doesn't reply to loyal customers doesn't deserve my money, and I'll spread this history whenever I can so people are aware of this issue and how the company handles their customers.
Parchi, 19 May 2018It is awesome phone ever in historyreally
then u have no knowledge about mobiles
buy this immediately..
>expected release May 2018
I'm guessing it's been released because I just bought one today. Updated information when?
1) Lower end qualcomm chipsets - Moto G series is always meant for a mid range user. The way qualcomm classifies their chipsets, motorola also classifies their handsets. It is very simple to understand the increasing order of performance - snapdragon 400 series then snapdragon 600 series then comes snapdragon 800 series. Similarly for motorola - E,G,X,Z is the series of phones that will carry chipsets according to the alphabetical ranking. Moto E being lowest in category will carry low end chipset. G is mid range, X is premium mid range and Moto Z is high end. You are looking for 800 series and motorola together you have to look for Z series.
2) You want to make sure whether or not 430 will be launched in USA or not. Perhaps 430 will not launch in USA but there is not much of a difference between 430 and 427 as both are very low end chipsets used in budget segment. I would rather ask you to wait for 600 series one which will be available in G6 (not play). See motorola was struggling to compete with new players in the segment so they further divided their G series into 3 segments - g6 play (low end, closer to moto E), g6 (normal one), G6 plus (most expensive of the lot, which will carry most competitive specs). So its not a question whether you will get 430 or 427 because both are low end. Better to wait for G6 or G6 plus which will carry slight bit bigger price tag but will be more value for money.
3) rest of your questions were related to GPU carried by same chipset so no need to answer because low end chipset carries basic GPU. 600 series will fulfill your gaming needs better with a better GPU. So only look for G6 plus.
4) Screen on this price - only IPS LCD you will get, which is not bad as such. But many people (including me) prefer AMOLED's as they have deeper blacks and more rich colors. In LCD whole of the panel lights up while in AMOLED only the colored part is lit up and black area means no live pixels in the background which makes blacks more black as compared greyish blacks on IPS LCDS. But some prefer LCDs as they look more natural.
More importantly you will not get any AMOLEDs at this price. (some makes give AMOLEDs with low end processor phones like - samsung, because it is their home make but other companies use AMOLEDs usually in their high end devices only)...
Hope this helps.
