DavidBelgium, 18 Jan 2019Hello I still own my Moto G2 since i bought it in April 2015 and i don't have any problems li... moreI absolutely agree, this is probably one of the best phones out there that are still being updated with ROM's on XDA and really good ones like Lineage OS 16 ffs. It's a fkin 5 year old ANDROID PHONE with 1 GB of RAM. Only apple does this kind of support nowadays.
Its a good phone every features is well but i have a problem in finding the option of file manager in which my all documents pic or all things are save.
Can any body help me? ??
Wolfie, 03 May 2018Mines still going strong.. and the non replaceable battery was very easy to replace. Explain to me how a non replaceable battery can be replaced. The reason I ask is that my phone is 1 week old and the battery sucks. By mid afternoon today it was down to 40%. Is there a secret?
Throwaway, 06 Jan 2019Terrible phone. 2/10 barely works half the time and support for it is non-existent. Shuts down... moreHello
I still own my Moto G2 since i bought it in April 2015 and i don't have any problems like you describe..
Official support is dead (well it's getting closer to being a 5 year old phone) but the aftermarket support is still good.
You should look on XDA Developers for custom roms/kernels.. I use the Lineage OS 16 (based on android 9.0) and it's working fine. (i did enable a low_ram_enabler for android).
The Snapdragon 400 isn't fast anymore but still usable for basic tasks..
So i would suggest, try rooting your device and install a custom kernel+rom and see if it's still crashing frequently
Terrible phone. 2/10 barely works half the time and support for it is non-existent. Shuts down randomly and doesn't power on when you want it to. Crashes frequently.
I have used this phone for the last 4 years. It was really worth buying it. The camera quality is still good and the gorilla glass makes it more worth it. The only demerit ia its battery life. But, considering all other benefits, it can be ignored. A happy and satisfied customer.
i am using this phone since more than 4 years, it is a gr8 phone though having 1 GB RAM it is still working great. Battery life is really good and Camera also good. worth it
I am still using Moto G2 and, believe or not, it never failed! the only problems these days are a small capacity battery, limited to 1 Gb memory and poor quality camera.. otherwise it is a great phone, very reliable! And also, it was ran over by a car last year but nothing bad happened to it, just a plastic case got crashed!
I have had this phone for over 3 years and it's still pretty great. Dropped it and broke the screen, put plastic wrap over it and it works just as well as it did in the beginning. It can't run intense games without getting warm, but for everything else it gets the job done and I'm pretty happy with it. The small storage is a bit of a pain, though. The OS takes up 2GB, leaving me with 6GB which runs out quickly - a problem if you like to take lots of photos.
I am using this phone even today and it's working fine....just 1 GB makes HD gaming difficult and also less batter life.....but still working condition.
I have this phone even now. The phone was usable when I purchased it but after android 6.0 firmware update it became slow and buggy, and after that it was very frustrating to use it as a daily driver.
The problem was android 6.0 was never a stable update on any smartphone so very early in its lifetime Google released a more stable android 6.0.1 or 6.0.3 update but even after months of delay when Motorola released android marshmallow update for Moto G2 they choose inferior and buggy 6.0 update only to cripple the phone so we might buy new phones, that was the game plan of every smartphone manufacturer in those days. Secondly it was a forced update which you couldn't deny.
After these kind of business tactics I decided against any future purchase of Motorola smartphones. They could have released stable update and retain their future customers and been a relevant smartphone manufacturing company.
Best phone at that time. Happily used four years. Best camera and battery performance.
I am not logged in but, telling of my 4 year experience with the Moto G 2nd cell phone and the reasoning behind abandoning this inherently faulted device. It maybe be taken down and called trolling. The choice of purchase by me of this device and interactions spans many chosen alignances by Moto g 2nd gen has been trouble from the start and successively faulty from the setup with the cell service provider via AARP/ The failed (1ST)phone and lack of support from the manufacturer to educate was poor at best.The (2ND) phone has proven to follow the same pattern with both me, AARP/Consumer Cellular improper/faulty sim cards,etc. I have purchased multiple recommended accessories for the device to better enhance it usability and reliability to no better operative results the multiple softwatware upgrades to the device usually made it more deficient and limiting to the user. The reasoning usually given of these forced,security,provider, government compliance required, with multiple software fixes (better known as patches) that followed have been faulty/damaging, product enhancements, etc have been trying. The motorola customer service (if you can make contact with them) usually ended in frustration for both the customer service person and phone owner, resulting in(if still under the abbreviated, limited warranty criteria) led to a exact flawed device less everything your added to it to try to get it to function usually blamed on the user, bad battery, faulty charger improper use of non-motorola charge/cords, breakage, water damage, and obsolescences.
While this abandonment and loss mitigation approach succeeds on better with greater distance from the user requesting repair/service of device by poorly trained ,ill-equipped individuals abandoned by the original manufacturer in modern business structure of late,"in my experience and only an opinion". I see this as a similar example of "If they can't find me, they can't make me" or "Slash and burn farming".
Please review and advise (warn) others
Wolfie, 03 May 2018Mines still going strong.. and the non replaceable battery was very easy to replace. Mine too, original battery still holding on... Very decent phone!
Best phone i have even seen, open an application in MOto G2 take a round trip to moon and still you will see that app is still loading or even phone got stuck :P:D
Mines still going strong.. and the non replaceable battery was very easy to replace.
Terrible, slow phone with such a small amount of internal memory you can only install a handfull of apps before you're getting memory full message. 8gb with only about 4.5gb available... Pointless. 1 GB ram really makes the phone run slow...
