I have this phone and i have some issues with marshmallow. since the update, the phone start to heat a lot and really slow and others things like memory space. one suggestion, DONT UPGRADE TO MARSHMALLOW, and if you do it, dont use your SD card as internal storage, apps lags to much
I purchased one last year and i loved it till few months ago where i faced often battery overheated issues and slow speed running. I changed sd card to 16GB and moved apps but still nothing changed. I believe dual sim and lots of apps management is too much for this cell :(
Personally I have had ZERO issues with this phone (other than I actually liked my smaller sized semi-smart phones) until installing Pokemon GO. In addition to using up the battery rapidly, if I'm trying to use bluetooth headphones AND Pokemon GO those two apps tend to restart themselves every once in awhile. This phone isn't any lightweight powerhouse with incredible battery life but it does take good pictures, has good sound, looks good and works well as a... PHONE. ;)
at the first time it was working very well, but after four months it's battery is nothing but a mess....very bad
This phone sucks! Started messing up not even a month after I had it. Sending it back to Motorola ASAP!
It was working well for about 4 months but now it's just annoying. The phone keeps complaining about the memory even when a lot of stuff is removed. Also some times it shuts it self off and after turning it on again all settings are changed weirdly. Many times when someone is calling me I can't hear them but they can hear me.
First impression of Motorola was very good but now unfortunately I have to put in my "Do not buy again"- list.
It was so good in the beginning, but after around 6 months it became exactly opposite, i loved it...not now, the touch has gone worst, the phone itself functions without a touch, battery sucks, i needed a strong charger to get it charged quickly.
Hey if you're looking to buy this phone, save your money. I got my first Moto G2 last March, not only did the battery die extremely quick but it overheated all the time. By May of the same year the phone completely crashed. We sent it off to Motorola to get fixed and in the mean time borrowed a Moto G1 from family (it has a horrible camera but was a decent phone I guess). My phone came back in June and I transferred everything from the G1 back, only to have the phone completely crash again the same day. Once again and finally after another long period of time Motorola sent back a "refurbished" G2 (because why give your customers a new phone when you can fix someone else's broken one?). This phone worked much better, except it dying extremely quick and glitches where the battery life seen is not at all the charge your phone has left, the storage claiming to be full constantly when it had a full gig untouched with a 32 GB SD card, constant overheating, glitching out and restarting, and recently the speakers turning off while playing music forcing you to reset the phone before using the speakers again. Don't get me wrong this refurbished one is at least 10x better then the original, but still not worth what I paid for it. And now the screen cracked and Cellular One refuses to fix it, they just say you can buy a new phone for $80 and I refuse to do that seeing how bad every other phone I've gotten from them being so horrid. If a phone is bad enough for me to deal with a shattered screen for a year instead of getting a new phone of the exact same make/model its not worth it. I have 7 more months with the G2 before our contract ends and I am just counting the days until then.
After 6 months. In two slots, one is not working. I changed to another one. Again I got the same problem. I took my cell to service. After 4 months again one slot is not working. Very bad to use two Sims in one cell. I could not use one sim due to slot issue and I am not getting any calls and also I could not use net pack. Troubling users very badly.
After just 18 month's use, my MOTO G2 turned dead. Battery not charging.
The Motorola/Lenovo service station checked and told that it needs Mother Board replacement costing Rs. 6000/-.
Phone's motherboard stopping its working in just less than 2 years of phone's use tells about Bad /Defective Manufacturing by Lenovo company.
I bought motog2 last September immediately with in one week of purchase it got updated to lollipop.from then many a times its hanging, battery doesn't last for one day at least ,while using Internet it hangs much,apps take time to open.provide me some solution. what should I do to make my phone work faster,smoother, long charging
hi am using this mobile from six months onward, am getting issues.
Always mobile getting switch if am not touching also. Pl let me know the solution for this problem
There is no any option is to be present in this phone to identify the sim 1 and sim 2 data if we use both sim for same operator
Has its problems but all of them can be solved. Has only 5.5 GB of useable internal memory -> get a high speed micro sd card and integrate it as internal memory (this is a new feature of android 6). Camera takes long to load up and is glitchy in snapchat, battery life can be poor -> install cyanogen mod (this will unfortunately void the warranty).
Only problem left is that the lack of ram makes it impossible to play Pokemon go in built up areas. Other than that, this is an awesome phone for the price, get a good screen protector and you've got a very capable durable phone that wont cost you the world if you lose it.
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2016can i play pokemon go on this You can, but its glitchy to the point of unplayable in built up areas because it only has 1gb of ram and pokemon go requires 2gb. You can increase the ram if you root your phone, but thats risky and will void the warranty of the phone.
