I am using this phone for the last 5 years, the screen was broken but I fixed it from the local mobile repairing center they replace it with a combo for Rs.1300,
I wish that Motorola has to relaunch this phone with new hardware with the same design with updated android versions, I will buy it because it's a handy design... and you can replace its back cover with colorful options... I loved it... nowadays my phone battery getting low...
I am confused to buy a new phone but the new moto 40g fusion and 60 is too big to design
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2021I too own moto g3 from 2015. Hows the battery life after installing custom ROM?Installed Lineage os 17.1 on my 6 year old moto g3. My experience is so far so good. Now my device is running Android 10. Is Android 11 available for this device? Wanted to try.

It's my main phone and it's decent for Discord, Instagram, YouTube, and simple apps like that. Anything demanding of the processor and it heats up like the inside of a car on a hot summer day. The battery isn't great but isn't terrible either. I'm looking into a Samsung Galaxy A12 and I'm hoping that it'll be a big upgrade.
Had the phone for 5 years now. Annoyingly it didnt have 5Ghz wifi capability(nor did I appreciate that it was a non feature), only an occasional issue that wifi is not supplied at 2.4 GHz.
I like that it is splashwaterproof and it does most things well, battery life has remained good so no issues for me.
my major issue is trying to install any apps on the phone....."storage space is running out"......and there is no option to transfer anything to the SD storage card(other than music photos), the operating system itself takes up most of the internal storage and I can only have a few apps installed, have to revert to uninstalling them, then calling them up when needed. The specs say it has 8GB, unsure on how going to a new phone will fix this issue if the new ones only have about the same.
Happy to keep using it if the internal storage for apps can be solved.

I don't use it as my primary device though. It's just a backup phone that i charge and discharge regularly to maintain the battery.
I recently installed Lineage OS 17.1 (osprey) custom ROM, based on Android 10, the device feels like brand new. Even my primary device runs on Android 9.
Moto G3 with Lineage OS custom ROM feels a whole lot better than the stock OS. If your device warranty has expired, I suggest you to try installing any custom ROM of your liking. I chose Lineage OS because of their "CURRENT" support status for Moto G3, unlike other few developers' "discontinued" status.

Had mine for 5 years now. Still works well, even the battery.
It only lacks a fingerprint sensor.
Have been looking around for an upgrade with fingerprint sensor, but all the alternatives are either to large, fragile (glass back etc) or discontinued from the market (not that GsmArena has noticed).

I too have this phone and my old battery is beyond saving. I'd like to revive my old baby with a state of the art battery pack. You mention a "MotoMod battery", but I can't find anything on that with google. Where can I get such a battery, where can I find specs etc.? Could you provide me with a link or a hint where to find this battery you're talking about? I'd greatly appreciate it.
Love this little beast. Added a MotoMod battery with Qi charging, so no cables. Even with several apps for work going all day, I can get 2 days out of the batteries.
Still using this phone as my daily device! Nowadays they don't make anything like they used to. Not just Motorola. Every phone company out there.
This had a nice feel to the hand. Curved with a rubberized-ish back panel. None of this modern glass-cover nonsense. It was easy to hold, it was durable and powerful enough. I liked it.

I guess the bad influences of Lenovo already manifested in this phone. That‘s also visible by the fact that it only got 1 major software update.
