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.
After updating to lollipop the screen cracked !!! That's what people call coincidence...........

Friends, My Moto G 4G XT1039 has custom 5.1.1 installed and rooted. Now I want to install the official 5.1. But I am confused about the region of my phone. If I search 5.1 update at xda, there are many files regarding different region. I will unroot and install official 5.1 if I know my phone's region. Please help me if I am wrong or tell me the procedure please.
I just updated this to 5.1 and I just got the phone two days ago. Very smooth with good battery life so far.
Just upgraded to Android 5.1 and I am a happy user again. This upgrade feels so faster! It was almost worth the delay!

Tom, 22 Jun 2015Trust me you dont want 5.0.1 its awful. wait for 5.1 it's a solid release!5.0.1? No, Moto G 4G is getting 5.1, skipping 5.0.x
goldenlock, 21 Jun 2015any 1 know why a brand new moto g 4g would not make or receive calls company & att service... moreI don't understand your questions: you should elaborate
(expand on what you mean).
I have to assume that you want to use the phone with a USA Network. USA networks it appears that they will only use phones purchased from themselves on their own network, and don't have to agree for somebody who purchase their phones from another seller, to use it on their network.
Therefore, whichever USA Network you want to use you should verify with the particular network if you purchased ANY phone (Android or Apple; cheap or expensive) from another seller would they either allow you to use your phone on their network, and if so how much would they charge?
My advice would be to buy a Motorola G 4G 2nd generation 2015 XT1072 phone, and not a Moto 1st G 4G XT1039 phone - quality.
Find information from www.YouTube.co.uk in UK: Use keywords for e.g; < Moto G 4G 2nd Gen 2015>,< Lollipop 5>,< Tips or Tricks>.
