Arfeen, 10 Mar 2018I suggest to guys pls. don't purchase this phone, I m facing software troubles badly like apps... moreI have the 2 GB RAM version, it has been working without problems for three years absolutely very nice phone
One of the most comfortable phones EVER! Didnt like today's glass phones that you must put on cases if you want to use it normally. Still have it for my backup phone and still work perfectly fine. 2gb ram model. Great camera on day conditions btw. Love this old Moto.
Beware of Motorola/Lenovo warranty support. Awhile ago i broke the SIM card slot of my unit and after sending it for repairs (which took two weeks...), they refused to repair it - said there was corrosion caused from water. On a waterproof phone... Which is totally working otherwise...
Got the 8GB version of this phone for about two years now, a year ago I rooted it and installed LOS (at my own risk of course), and I have to say this phone is a beast! It really seems like it could last a lifetime, with the proper case and screen protector, which I have. I dropped it countless times and it looks and performs like the first day (maybe even better, after the whole rooting and updating thing). All this said, I can't help but pointing out a little bright spot near the center of the screen, which has me a little worried, I'm not sure about what's causing it, but it seems to be some hardware related issue, like something pushing the screen from behind. Anyway, it seems to be harmless, since it has been around for over a year and it hasn't affected the normal functioning of the phone, so totally recommended.
I have the 2 GB RAM version, it has been working without problems for two years
Good Phone. Nice UI. Android 6.0 . 13 Mp Amazing camera and support OTG . Battery life is also good. Mostly this phone is very affordable to hand

Wipe cache partition on your device:
Step 1: First of all switch off the your phone
Step 2: Press & hold the volume down button and the power button at the same time until the phone turns on.
You can see the Android system recovery screen on your device. By default Â“startÂ” button seen on your android nougat 7.0.
Step 3: Press the volume down button until you see recovery mode
Step 4: Press the power button to restart in recovery mode
You can see the screen of android robot with red exclamation mark on phone screen.
Step 5: Press volume buttons to scroll to wipe cache partition, press the power button to select it.
You can view this message on screen: Wipe cache?
Step 6: To confirm, use volume buttons to scroll to Yes and press the power button to select it.
Clearing the cache data may take 2-5 minutes.
Step 7: Use the volume buttons to scroll to reboot system now, press the power button to select it.
I suggest to guys pls. don't purchase this phone, I m facing software troubles badly like apps issue, hanging, camera stopping, battery draining, phone power off.
You can easily search Moto G3 problems with google.
AnonD-649776, 03 Mar 2017Umm, the phone you're bashing has 2gb ram. Clearly you never owned the phone.You have no idea what you're talking about. The G 2015 has two variants, an 8 ROM/1 RAM and 16 ROM/2 RAM. Quit your crap.
Kostas, 25 Jan 2018Great review many thanksThe review was based on subjective facts and not objective facts.
I did provide YouTube links with my previous reply but it was probably banned.
Search on YouTube for example for, Moto G3rd Gen games, since games test the processor properly, or maybe Moto G3rd Gen speed or create your own keywords to search for on YouTube.
AnonD-721388, 12 Jan 2018Think before you buy. Think of how you are planning to use the smartphone. If you want to run ... moreRooting Motorola phones will breach a person's warranty and besides Marshmallow besides numerous things that can be done should substantially reduce battery life:
Reducing the display light, setting the sleep mode to 2 minutes reducing things unnecessarily running in the background, the weaker the wi-fi signal the faster the battery will drain.
Shortening the animation scales within Settings > Developer Options >; Window animation scale = 0.5x, Transition animation scale = 0.5 and Animator duration scale = 0.5x
I did in my previous post included a link to YouTube to verify that rooting is unnecessary but it was probably banned.
Carlito, 12 Jan 2018I learnt the 3rd gen is good,but can it be compared to moto x?Yes.
I posted a reply with YouTubes' links but it must have been banned.
Search within Youtube for Moto G3rd Gen versus Moto X or any other phone that you wish to compare it to.
Anonymous, 14 Dec 2017Temperature of Moto G3 increases to a great extent while talking on phone. My phone has mother... moreContact Motorola or Lenovo if they have replaced Motorola.
You should also contact the place you purchased it from because it shouldn't overheat.
AnonD-721388, 09 Dec 2017I bought this phone from USA Amazon.com about 2 years ago. I did root it, and I am running And... moreWhen I have time I shall search to see if it is safe to root my Moto G3rd Gen, XT1541, UK to the 7th version of the Android operating system & if possible the 8th version.
I would start by asking Motorola UK & Europe because they supply support for the UK:
I don't think that the Moto G3 gen is being sold anymore at least in the UK.
Moto G4 or G5 may be better value for money but they may not be water resistant to one metre (UK) for half an hour I think it is.
I think that you have made a mistake with the specifications:
Purchase: 2GB RAM & 16GB ROM instead of 1 GB RAM & 8GB ROM:
Back in 2015, I purchased the one GB RAM because I didn't like being overcharged.
The Indian's package had 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM with free earplugs etcetera and it was cheaper than the UK's 1 GB RAM, which is one reason why I won't be buying another Motorola or Lenovo product again.
Carlito, 12 Jan 2018I learnt the 3rd gen is good,but can it be compared to moto x?Yes, it can.
Before I purchased my Moto G3rd Gen 2015 in 2015, UK I carried out a lot of research.
I have just checked for you:
www.YouTube.co.uk or www.YouTube.com and search for,
Compare Moto G3rd gen versus Moto X.
But an easier method is to just copy and paste the following link into a search engine, I use Google's Chrome, Moto X, < Compare Moto G3rd gen versus Moto X > without the brackets . Despite being rusty methods used in the past are coming back to me.
AnonD-721388, 12 Jan 2018Think before you buy. Think of how you are planning to use the smartphone. If you want to run ... moreI would never tell any person to root their phone because it could damage it and if under guarantee would breach its warranty.
I have upgraded my Moto G 3rd Gen, UK, XT1541 to Marshmallow 6.0.1, which is the highest operating system that it can be legally upgraded to and it has a feature to make the battery last much longer without routing. Automatically using the feature that automatically shuts down apps when not in use besides other features in Marshmallow at least significantly saves battery life. Making the phone sleep if not used for 2 mins (Settings (6 pointed wheel when stroke the display from top to bottom > Press on the 6 pointed wheel > Display, and reducing the light (stroke the display from top to bottom may have to do it at least twice > to reduce the light move the 8 pointed wheel to the left) beside numerous other things is safer than rooting.
< YouTube.co.uk > or < YouTube.com >. - Within the YouTube's search box insert,
< Moto G3rd gen save battery > copy and paste if you like without the brackets .
Copy and paste this link into your browser (I used Google's Chrome Browser)
I use Ravpower portable battery pack RP-PB19 with a capacity of 1670mAh with 2 charging outputs; 2.4A & 2.1Amps it adjusts the voltage safely to whatever USB 5V USB device connected to it and automatically switches off when the limit is reached.
I also use Ravpower's 6 Port RP-UC10, which means also I don't have to worry about saving battery.
This reminds me using wireless wifi also reduces the battery. Therefore wherever possible don't connect to weak wifi because the weaker it is the more battery it will use. never download or update apps unless you are connected to the mains or have a portable battery pack that can automatically switch off when the limit is reached or a charger that can properly fully charge your phone or device without damaging it.
When I am at home I always keep my USB devices fully charged up.
Kostas, 25 Jan 2018Great review many thanksThe person who said that the Moto G3rd Gen is useless is probably actually talking nonsense: Which apps did he or she use? Where did the person download the apps from? Does the person use security software, and if so was it set up correctly? Does the person use a cleaner? Does the person unnecessarily have numerous apps running in the background, etcetera? What are the settings on the person's phone?
The person hasn't given any information that can be independently verified.
I have had mine since 2015 and it isn't that bad.
You can verify for yourself by going to YouTube and searching for Moto G3rd Gen.
You can also search for the following also, Moto G3rd Gen games, Moto G3rd Gen speed testing and Moto G3rd Gen Tutorials, Moto G3rd Gen Apps.
I have just verified that the examples that I have given actually works properly because it has probably been years since I researched Moto G3rd Gen, UK, XT1541.
The above YouTube links should be more than enough to verify that Kostas is talking nonsense (balderdash)
