Moto g and moto e are very good phones,but moto g 2nd gen has many problems in it.Many are praising it just because others are praising it.
I got a moto g 2nd gen from flipkart on 22nd of October and replaced it twice,but every time I got a defective piece.Don't understand whether flipkart is sending me defective pieces or the product itself is second class.
These were some of the issues that i faced:-
1.The touch screen is not responsive at all.
2.The ear piece produces cracking sound during every call,even at mid volume.
3.The second sim slot looses network frequently.
4.sometimes on a call,our voice fails to reach the opposite person.
5.If we play subway surfers continuously for an hour,then this mobile shows its original colors,It starts hanging very badly and the whole mobile gets heated up.
6.The available 400 mb ram falls short during heavy multi tasking.
7.Battery life is just average.Lasts only 4 hours with 3g and half an hour of gaming.Battery lasts a bit more when on wifi.
8.Takes ages to charge with the provided charger.
9.If we use a high power charger the touch screen starts misbehaving.
10.Comes in 2 variants.One has a good display and the other has a pinkish display.Please check yours.
11.Gives a bad smell through its usb port.
12.Worst service centers ever seen.They provide late but costly service.
The good points are.
1.It has stock android.
2.Quick in getting android updates.
I am not against any brand.I have used moto g and also moto e and liked them very much,But this moto g2 made me disappointed.I have written these issues just because i have faced them,not to discourage anyone from buying this product.
So guys,if you purchase this mobile,check for the above issues.If you find none of them then you have got the perfect mobile,if you find any of the issues go for a replacement.
there must be something wrong with motorola management. this 2014 model kind of 1 step backward
Original Moto G was an Extrem Good phone, the 5MP camera was the only (but big) problem whit it.
Now here we have Moto G 2014, and its a gigant POS.
First of all it is ugly, thick, hardware components are the same (no S410 SoC, etc, only the camera is better), and it is fare too BIGGGG to use, or to buy.
I just can't understand why all brand ingnore phones under 5 inches.
This is an unworthy successor, and once again, this is TOOOOOOO BIG. Will not buy. Never. Ever.
The specifications on this page for Moto G 2014 Dual Sim include 1700 MHz. Can anyone confirm this us true? Other websites do not include 1700.

Can anyone tell me that how can we make a video call from motog2 coz there is no option of video call in contacts and If we can't then why is there 3g camera.
battery is pretty decent if i dont play games it lasts me about 6hrs 15 mins if i play casual games it lasts 4 hrs so im satisfied with battery .....the problem is the original charger is too slow in charging takes about 3hrs or more to charge full
