Great phone and fantastic video quality. 2 problems I have found are it only has 4GB of usable internal memory and the signal quality is much worse with this 2nd generation compared to the 1st generation.
Gorilla Glass with Scratches after 1 week of use.
Got mine a week ago moto g 2nd gen XT1068 dual sim version. Updated it to lollipop and I'd say it works great. The only problem that I had for this phone is the "Screen". I never used it quite often yet and after 1 week of use it already has 2 1-inch size hairlike scratches on the lower 3rd of the screen. I haven't used it that much and never put it in a pocket with keys or coins so I'm surprised it had these scratches. I have been very careful with it because of the replacement policy but I was surprised on what happen. I remove the factory screen plastic 3 days after purchase believing it has Gorilla glass and the screen is clear at that time. Never drop it and never used it with sand or hard steel. Only gone to (clean)pocket to hands, just that.
I have been a user of "Nexus 10" tablet for 2 years now with Gorilla glass 2 on it without any screen guard and even now there is still not a single scratch on it, I even put things on top of it like keys and coins, even used rough cloth to wipe out the finger prints, even used it as a pingpong racket once, still no scratches.
So I suggest for users to put screen protector on it. I don't know, maybe because my Nexus 10 was made in Korea unlike my Moto G that is made in China, maybe they have a different way of making Gorilla Glass in that part of the world.
@Morgan: Screen viewing is great, even though lower than 300 ppi. I used it to read some of my pdf files on the go and no problem reading small letters. It's very hard even if you try to find any pixelations on the screen. Watching movies is great as well. Scratches can only be seen if screen is turned off and focusing it to a light.
What's the screen quality like? Can someone please reply...
great phone coming from a s3 mini it's a whole new world. smooth, fast and battery long over a normal day of use.
