This is a good device with an acceptable performance to be a mid range phone, however I realized a few days ago, the material for the Battery got hot easily. and get drains quickly....
Still no Lollipop Update. And Yes, I do have my Motorola Updates Services completely updated as per App Information and Playstore's information. And Now we have the Android 6.0 :/
Why is that?
Moto G (1st Gen) users need to ensure that they have the latest Motorola Updates Services from the Play Store, otherwise you will not see the future Lollipop upgrade notification. This is not necessary for Moto G (2nd Gen).﻿

Hi! Could anyone tell me please how to update my Moto G 4G in Colombia to Lollipop? I've tried to update on Playstore the Motorola Service Update but is updated already and when I go to "Software Update" it says my Moto G is up to date.
I also have a couple of friends with the Moto G and Moto X (Both 1st Gen) and they recieved the update on the past couple days. :(
Can anyone help me please?
Even though 3rd gen is coming soon XT1039 is still one of the best budget/mid range phones. It's updated with the latest android, but works fine with older one (kitkat). No matter if kitkat or lolipop - you get nice and clean android with only some bloatware. The system performs well, stock launcher is fast and gives you hi-end experience. It's good for both normal, everyday use and developement. Easy root method available and support with custom roms. Battery life is above average, call quality is surprisingly good. Now the negatives - the phone I've bought at Tesco UK was a Vodafone version. It's LED notification light didn't work and I also couldn't unlock the network to use it with different carrier. The only solution was flashing retail rom. Another thing is the lack of double tap to wake up option that makes you use power button every time you want to switch the screen on or off. This can be fixed with additional software. I also find the lack of ability to set 2G network as preferred annoying, because 3G and 4G are massive battery drainers. However, this can also be fixed. Generally, I must say LG L40 I used before is a little bit more user friendly as it has all these options built-in. After all I would recommend this phone anyway.
OBOUR NANA, 24 Jun 2015I'm using motorola moto G 4g EU version...... According to most of the posts in here, the 5.1 ... moreYou have to go to google play store and update "motorola update services". After that go back to phone settings and you should be able to get lolipop.
Moto G 4G model XT1039 purchased July 1, 2015
Android 4.4.4 (already out the update for Lollipop).
Screen high quality and excellent definition.
USB host for OTG cable connections.
SD card connector.
Good battery life (I disable unused applications, Motorola Spotlight, talkback, Pinyin Input, etc.)
The best value for money.
I installed Textra, CCleaner, Ampere, TeslaLight, Sony Audio Recorder and AIDA64 (for detailed information of the cell).
I recommend this phone.
Just got back my Moto G 4G after the repair. Mainboard was replaced.
For Malaysia purchased Moto G 4G, I do not recommend to upgrade to Lollipop. From what the tech says, more and more Moto G and Moto G 4G have been pouring in for repairs due to mainboard failure after upgrading to Lollipop. They can't say is it due to mainboard failure or the upgrade caused something to fail. Mine was loaded with 4.4.3. Hope to get more feedback if any users have upgraded to official release of Lollipop 5.1 on Moto G 4G without issues in Malaysia.
so far i love the 5.1 version. it gives me 1 day more. the features are good however some of them are too new.
nothing to report at this point.
VIJAY, 10 Jul 2015i got lollipop 5.1 update fluid experiencethank you for your answer.
anyone has to say something about the new 5.1 android? i'm not sure if i have to upgrate... what you say? anyone having any problem so far?
I just updtred os to 5.1. Too early to give any comments. My moto G 4g lte bought in US one year ago. I use this phone in rural area of Indonesia . But still got update via OTA. THX
This model have issues with auto shutdown. I have experience it many times after 3 months of performing flawlessly. The auto shutdown started consistently 1.5 days after full charge but then it became random. After upgrading to Lollipop 5.1 OTA, it became worst. I have tried everything available but finally, it was dead and I have to send it in for warranty claim. I was informed by the tech that Moto G and Moto G 4G (all generations) have issues with the mainboard. Some come earlier and some come later. I hope they have rectified the mainboard and I will get a mainboard replacement. Very sad.
