Having problems with my Moto G 2nd gen 4G - when I put it in a case and try to unlock the phone, it unlocks for a second, then the screen goes dark and it locks again. Oddly works fine out of the case. Tried 2 cases - same problem. Any ideas ?
been looking at this phone, love it but has issues as do so many phones but also thinking about the Sony Xperia T3 as like style and design. Both phones on offer in argos "sim Free"
which would you guys go for???????
Atharva, 21 May 2015Can we use shell of older moto g 2014 to this 4g moto g 2014???The Moto G 4G 2nd Gen. XT1072, 2015 with; 5" Display, 2 Front Speakers, 4G, and 1 SIM - SHOULD USE EXACTLY THE SAME SIZE; Case, and Screen Protector as - Moto G 2nd Gen. 2014, XT1068, with; 5" Display, 2 Front Speakers, 3G, and 2 SIMs. - Two SIMS Versus One SIM doesn't alter the physical case shape size.
AnonD-403828, 14 Jun 2015I would have bought this if it was available in whiteIf you definitely wanted a white one than buy a white case, but The Motorola Flip cases are faulty: 1st magnet is too strong and the 2nd generation the magnet is too weak:
I cannot recommend any case, because I haven't found the correct case yet (shockproof) protect the phone's display if it falls onto a concrete floor.

A black picture frame wither television or smartphone display the colour better.
4 week Experience=
-buy an separate sd card atleast 16gb sd
-have separate ear/headphones
-buy a separate micro usb sync cable
-battery life can take you about a day with continuous usage
-rear camera is okay but hit or miss.
-front camera is good.
-quality is actually good although plastic
-display is very good. 720p hd. bright. good!
-performance is good. ok for everyday tasks. Dont overload it though. can handle any game you through at it but i wouldnt say they all work maybe 6/10 trippleA work well.Multitasking and speed is good. Not excellent but good.
-some performance issues but that is due to lollipop memory management problem, can only open up to about 5-7 apps at once for it to work very well and fast. 12-15 apps open at once will slow it down.
-sometimes call quality was a bit bad.
-whole phone is a finger print magnet.
-speakers arent that good.they loud though.
overall review= 7.3/10 very good phone for the phone.I recommend it to anyone.
i post the link from Amazon USA. .it is stated GLOBAL UNLICKED. Last i boght G 4G lte from US Amazon using in Idonesia. I have no problem. My Moto G still running ok. I hope this time will work same way. Do not buy just any unlocked. It has to be Global Unlocked phone
NIK 88, 23 May 2015Where do live ? I plan to buy from Amazon US. Unlocked global version. Check out the frequenc... moreI think that you could only buy a Global Moto G 4G 2nd Gen., XT1072 Phone in Europe.
I also don't think that the USA actually has the equivalent of a XT1072 phone: I probably got that information from Motorola, but I can't remember whether it was from Motorola UK or USA or both.
Erica Griffin in one of her www.YouTube.co.uk videos also stated that she purchased a USA Moto G 2nd Gen. 2014 phone.
If she had known she would had purchased the European Global version - Had more bandwidth was one advantage, I think.
In the UK if we purchased a locked phone we can pay to have it unlock, and the phone could then be used by any network company, but in the USA there is a different system: Even if you unlock the phone they still may not allow you to use their Network - I thought was a con.
Oligopoly in economics is when a handful of companies have complete control of a market. Similar to a Monopoly which has one company that has complete control of a market, but Oligopoly is were an handful of companies have complete control.

This is because some networks won't provide deals for phones not purchased from themselves.
I have forgotten what it is called, but it is a rip-off in the USA.
santosh, 20 May 2015how to buy this phoneWhere do live ? I plan to buy from Amazon US. Unlocked global version. Check out the frequency of the phone. If it will work in your area.

Hey guys can any1 tell me that this phone is water resistance or not can we wash the phone?
And plz tell me 4g version is available in India or not does it have any problems? and does it have lollipop at unboxing?
James, 15 May 2015It is definitely the phone as nothing else has changed. The 1st generation has full reception ... moreI have now got the moto g 2nn gen 4g,do you think I have made the right chose? It was this or the moto E 2nd gen?
Anonymous, 15 May 2015would that be the network provider, or place? or is that defo the phone? It is definitely the phone as nothing else has changed. The 1st generation has full reception and in the same place the 2nd generation has almost 0. Shame really as it is a great phone
