I will try to post some screenshots . plz If anybody facing the same problem do comment here .. I noticed this kind of problem for the first time ..
I will post my own experience from the upgrade from 5.0.2 to 6.0. At first I didn't notice anything bad, marshmallow has some interesting new features and I was happy playing around. The problem was with third party applications-games I used with L without any performance issues. They seemed just too heavy for M. Too much lagging. Indeed Android 6.0 binded more memory than L (about 140MB more) and this is not slight in a 1gb device (I don't know the specs but in my device this was the variance between the two OS). Moreover I used the external sd card as internal memory but some apps didn't work when placed in sd and should be placed in internal (well maybe this is not a problem as sd and internal are both used as internal but anyway what's the use of this?). Using 3rd party apps drained the battery much quicker than before. I did factory reset, waited for a couple of days for the new OS to settle but nothing changed. Overall my device didn't feel right with M and I decided to downgrade to 5.0.2 unlocking the bootloader and loosing the warranty! I don't say M is a bad OS -the opposite- but in my case it's not for this device!

Since new i had network connection problems (celular and wifi). Took it back several times, the issue was never fixed. Later the microphone started to fail, then the touch started to fail, took it back again to be looked at, all under warranty, motorola did not honour its warranty. Even after the long history of faults witth the phone.
I had a moto G gen 1 that was great, but This moto G gen 2 was a terrible purchase NEVER buying a motorola again EVER.
Iam using this phone from last 1year i never face any problem bt when i update my phone my phone very slow now phone memory also going down wt i doo plz answer me.

Ishepherdu, 17 Mar 2016Hi there! I am an older Caucasian single man (53 yrs) anyways, I read your informative smart ... moreHi there .... as a new user you will first find it a bit diff. to use this android smartphones but don't worry you will get use to it very soon as of now I recommend u if u are a gamer then this phone is not for u as it has limited RAM and CPU is old 32bit u can't play heavy games but u can play casual games , it can run mostly app social or communication apps like Whatsapp , facebook etc . Second Don't install unnecessary apps only use the apps u really want to use , always keep your apps up-to-date but before updating apps just read some of reviews bcoz sometime the new version crashes so be aware of that . If you updated your phone software to latest that is Android 6.0 Marshmallow then plz do a hard reset as it will refresh the whole software but backup your data first I recommend u to use a micro SD Card so that u can manage your data easily and its portable ,the battery capacity is limited 2000mah but it can last for a full working day if u are a casual user always charge ur phone fully don't discharge ur phone battery completely, charge it whenever you have time or battery is less than 15-20% the phone comes with glass protection so don't worry about scratches but don't drop it the glass might shatter , for camera u can use default camera app , turn on exposure mode for better control or u can also use google camera app camera can take some decent/good photos in outdoor and some decent shots in artificial light for data management install es file explorer , the phone can run almost all apps but not heavy apps bcoz of old hardware , call clarity is good use this phone if u find any difficulty regarding this phone post your questions and u will get a solution hope it helps goodbye

Because there is no opt... morehi, I had the same problem. what you do is format the SD card as internal memory (you won't be able to use the card once ejected, but you will be able to format it at any time) and then the phone will identify a single memory and you won't have to worry about moving anything. hope it helps.
