Remember folks, this handset was released in September of 2014, and one of the last Motorola phones produced before the Lenovo buyout was complete, when Google was still calling the shots...For a budget unit, the MG2 is packed with features that its predecessor/successors don't have... Such as a gyro (absent on original G and G3), compass (absent on original G and G4), proximity (absent on G3 and G4), and was the only one in the G line-up with dual front-facing true stereo speakers...Granted, they were no HTC Boomsounds, but dual fronts are hard to find, even on a flagship these days...Yes, it's very slow, with only 1 GB of RAM, and not designed for gaming or power users, but at presemt it works fine for me until I can save enoough for an unlocked flagship, such as a Moto X, Moto Z, Google Pixel, or HTC 10...
Pourya, 15 Oct 2016I'm using moto g2 for 2 years,beside all of its good things like stereo speakers, realy good q... moreI only use whatsapp and facebook lite. no heat. maybe your screen is damage. replace it.
I love this phone! This is the second one because I broke my first one and I will use it until it passes away. It does everything I need it to do and I haven't found another to match it. When it was released it was described as "the best budget phone ever" and I agree totally.My friends use much more expensive phones and can't believe that my cheap one is better than theirs. Why spend several hundreds of £££££s when this phone is as good as any out there in my opinion.
Does any one installed the latest Android Security -
Includes the updates of Android security patches until August 1st 2016.
Does it make any noticeable difference(s)?
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2016moto is bad not support 4gDo update function 4g band?
I'm using moto g2 for 2 years,beside all of its good things like stereo speakers, realy good quality images(not selfie), a little water proof and last standing cellphone, it has some problems like over heating and low battery life and can't take full hd videos; but for me it has one other big problem, very big problem that realy hurts me is the screen quality,it hurts my eyes, i think maybe it has too much blue background color and dark colors shown as black. I used some eye protector apps but doesn't works, can anyone help me???
I've had this little cheap phone for 2 years now. It was supposed to be a temporary phone, but I've been so happy with it that I'm gonna keep it for as long as I can! I have compared to my friends' phones like Samsung Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5 and 6 and I can honestly say there isn't much difference in speed because it's very streamlined from Motorola and Google creators. I also love the size because I have small hands and it fits comfortably in my pockets. I hear people complaining about 4g and 3g...I didn't even noticed that it doesn't support 4g...it's so fast that I'm surprised it doesn't. LOL. I use an 8gb SD card to keep my phone as light as possible and also the Google drive to store all my junk. My battery last the whole day and in 2 years hasn't been depleted yet. The only thing I wish it had a better front camera...selfies are very bad.
Have used g2 for almost 2 years. The phone was great at its time. But now for a smooth smartphone experience you require a phone with better memory (RAM). Have had trouble booking cabs by uber!
Overheating and low battery life are the biggest let down for this product. In the coming age, many commercial activities are going to shift to m-commerce (most already have). You need a phone that's more reliable. I am switching to moto z play which will be released in India on the 17th of October.
Motorola as a brand continue to bring up products as the need changes. They learn from the drawbacks from their old phones and incorporate changes in their new models at a reasonable price. Its time to shift with the time.
I did the reset and now is working fine the Radio, I think one of the google appss update was forcing my Radio to go slow. jumm I'm still testing wich is. I'm thinking to buy a new Motorola and maybe the Moto G4. but the bad thing is that the Compass and the proximity sensors are gone in the new Moto phone. sadly, I will think to buy the moto e power as well.
I too had a G2, one of the best handy budget phone with great built quality. But now I'm forced to buy a new phone since this does not support 4G and has only 1 GB of RAM. I wouldn't have missed this, if they had made this changes while upgrading from 1st generation. Since samsung or Xiomi can't satisfy a motorola customer, I'm going for the Moto E3 power (I know, its a tough time for Motorola and is trying hard to keep it's legacy under Lenovo) for a price of RS 3649/- from flipkart by exchanging G2.
I have a Moto G2 and I can't remember how many times I have trouble with this phone... Very quick to overheat, overprocesses itself, shuts itself down WITHOUT NOTICE, and overall just a very slow phone regardless of how much storage memory I've emptied or if I've restarted the phone recently.
Buy a new phone. You get what you pay for.
I have a moto g 2nd gen phone bt I have a 4g sim bt this phone is not supporting... in this case what should I do?
my moto g2 is always on edge but my sim card is 3g to how do i change the network mode. am in Ghana and i use tigo network. it is very fast when connected to WIFI.
I bought the phone this year. I have like 6 month using it, and I update the Radio FM app and now takes like more than 1 minute to work. its like in the background is updating the stations I think and after all of that starts working, so If I turn it off and back on is the same, I need to wait like 2 minutes to have the radio working. I will make a hard reset to see is that works.
Elango, 28 Sep 2016please understand when g2 is released there is no 4g band in india...and it is not possible to... moreI agree!! I am using it since 2 years and its a great phone (not considering 4G). Huge internal memory and quiet satisfactory battery back up as well. I have used it to watch virtual classes during my 4 years of MBBS and 2 years MD so extensively and was expecting it to hang/crash, but it still works great. Tech advancements keep happening, cant blame older models for something like that. Anyways, its only but intelligent to move to 4G :)
