I am using Moto G-2 Gen, but there seems to be serious problem with the camera. Every time you open the camera it will ask to restart the phone meaning thereby that you will loose the moment. overall not happy with the phone and battery back up is also not great.
First of all : I am reviewing a replacement device and Flipkart did a good job on delivering both.
1. 5" Screen offers a great viewing experience, colors are bright and brightness is very good.
2. The dual front speakers are not very loud but get's the job done very well.
3. Micro SD is a nice add on atleast in the Indian market.
4. The latest and the greatest android, also the promise to get the fastest update.
5. Price : A thousand buck less than its predecessor , Motorola nailed it.
6. Availability : Unlike some of the other affordable offerings Motorola has been great in availability. A device is great when you can actually buy it.
7. Build Quality is in similar lines with the previous generation, which by every means is great.
1. WIFI Issues : The fact that wifi is latest here, is great but there is a catch. It happens it does not support some access points/router authentication types which generally other devices does. This was why I replaced it in the first place. But in the replacement device the problems were same, then I did some digging, the fact it is 802.11 b/g/n/ac compatible but the authentication type it is compatible is very limited, i.e. WEP(bit encryption m not sure), WPA/WPA2 (this worked for me). and 802.1X Radius. That's it. If your router has some other it will not detect it even.
2. Size : This may not be a problem for some but yes this thing has grown up huge since its predecessor.
3. Battery : 2070 mah used to power 4.5, same is used to power 5.0 , the math is simple here, with not a good outcome.
4. Buttons : This time buttons have a soft touch feel to it. I am not sure about how it feels but the response of the click is certainly not tactile as it had previously.
Overall, Cons other than wifi issues should not have been here considering what we get and what we pay.
Recommended : 8/10
heating problem why you guys so worry. no worries yarr. I do face so many heating problem from my samsung s2, my xperia SP, my bold 9700 even my nexus5 and latest my bbQ5. what you can do is switch off your 3G connectivity into 2G mode, after that clear your running app by holding down the button next to home button, then restart your phone. within one minute it can become as cool as room temperature.

Blade1s, 12 Sep 2014yes correct, but free ram memory is oly 315mb is it enough?Use clean master. In case of moto g ram has latest technology of clearing ram space their by the speed will be more even with less available space. If doubt compare 2gb ram note to with this. This one leads. Compare 2gb ram nexus 5 with this. Both are equal speed.
