They work completely without data connection if necessary. For Android you need to download HERE maps from Google Play. On the GPS receiver issue I can't help you, though, you will just have to experiment.

Doesn't sound like yours is as it should be to me, you could try installing the google now launcher but I would be returning it to seller in your case. Hope that helps

I want to use smartphone as a offline gps device which:
1. Doesn't require data connection for navigation
2. Have good gps catching capacity ( currently using mediatek processor which doesn't catch gps)
2. Is Qualcomm processor better than Mediatek or Intel processor fo gps?
Biggest pile of doggy doo I have ever used. User interface has no logic. Everything takes 3-4 steps where an iPhone would take 1. I have to have the thing on permanent charge when using at work as battery life is sooo poor. easily takes 4-5 hours to fully charge. And don't think of going to bed on quarter charge cos it will be dead by morning. Facial recognition only works indoors in good/office level lighting. Screen is unreadable even on full brightness in outdoor sun. Maps/directions are good...as long as you have a compass in your other hand. Won't run 2 apps at same time (podcast and strava with out crashing/freezing one of them. Camera has no zoom facility and quality is not even upto iPhone 4. Very little to recommend

UK: XT1072 is known as Moto 4G LTE and XT1072.
Please could you also include part numbers for all smartphones?
Could you also enter a section for operating systems especially Android?
Great phone for the price. It doesn't compete with high-end handsets, but it doesn't intend to. The smaller form factor and rich list of features make this perfect for me. I have the first gen 4G version and rooted it and updated to Lollipop. Works like a dream. I love the freedom of Nexus devices. Unless you want a phone for games or photos, this can't really be beaten. A perfect every day phone. There is nothing it can't do.
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2015Which one is the best overall: MOTO G 4G or MOTO G(2nd generation)?Depends on what you want, but Moto G 4G, 2nd Gen., XT1072, 2015 is probably better than Moto G 2nd Gen., XT1068, 2014.
XT1072: 4G future proof-Battery 2390 mAh instead of 2070 mAh.
XT1068: 3G Dual SIMs, but XT1072 only one SIM.
Amazon UK Prices: XT1068 = £135.89 & XT1072 = £149.99
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2015Which one is the best overall: MOTO G 4G or MOTO G(2nd generation)?I love my 4G moto g dropped it 3x and its still working although in my area 4g is slow
i will sell my phone as all phones before and after it recived android l. yet im still and 4.4.4
when will moto g 4g(2015) come to indian market? and what is it battery capacity and is it supports dual sim?
I was only interested in Motorola UK; XT1068 (Moto G 2nd Gen, 2014), and XT1072 (Moto G 4G, 2nd Gen 2015) latter was sold on Motorola UK, then Amazon UK, and now it is beginning to be sold by other sellers.
The last hopefully correct information, which I heard from Motorola is that finally all the 2nd generation Moto G and 4G phones will come with Lollipop 5.0.2.
First generation Moto series will probably have a longer wait to get Lollipop 5.0.2.
But you can contact Motorola UK, and hope that they can give you a date when Lollipop 5+ maybe available for first generation (obsolete) phones - Good news yes, but the bad news they probably won't be able to tell you - you will probably know before they do with a message on your phones:
i got a Motorola because they promise early updates, 4 months after android 5.0 comes out and im still waiting for lolipop despite the moto g 2013 which is pretty much the same phone getting it already
