My short review after 2 months of usage.
Design and build: May be you'l think its bulky to hold at 11.6 mm, but the curved design makes the phone comfortable in hand. The quality is good enough for a 13k phone. The power button and volume rockers offer a good feedback when pressed. Overall a good design and build considering the price.
Display: Few say that it must have been 1080p. Yeah i agree but trust me, 1080p on a phone with SD 410 chip would ruin our experience. The display is weak on my opinion. Colors look dull. Previously used Xperia L and it was way more bright and looked great even in direct sunlight. But i didn't have the same experience with Moto G3. Actually disappointed.
Battery: let me keep it simple. Marvelous battery life. I get a screen on time of more than 6 hours before the phone prompts me to turn on battery saver. Wifi on all day, more than 1.30 hours of calls, I'm a big asphalt 8 lover, so i play it for at least 2 hours a day, Youtube for an average of 30 mins a day, browsing, facebook etc, few fun photo shoots daily at work place. These are my typical usage scenario.
Connectivity: Everything works fine. No drops in Wifi, Bluetooth works fine. GPS tracks fine. No complaints in connectivity.
Performance: Near stock android, quad core cpu, gets the job done for a regular user. It can't handle heavy games though. Asphalt 8 at medium graphics was smooth, GTA SA was choppy, MC5 was well playable, NOVA 3 was choppy. Remember the chip and GPU are not very powerful to run every intensive game you throw at it. Apart from gaming, the performance was awesome, trust me you won't regret. Multitasking is not bad either. App launch times are fast as well.
Calls: No issues. 3g sometimes drops signal one or two bars and become fine within few seconds. Quality of calls are very good.
Multimedia: Some video files didn't even show up in the default gallery app, but it was available and playable in mx player. It seems like some video codecs are not supported natively. Audio output via speaker is pretty loud but lacks crispiness. Earphones provided within the box-- S**t :) But I have Sennheiser, and the audio quality is top notch. Use a good earphone to enjoy the true capability of the audio in Moto G3.
Camera: Its good overall. Rear camera produces good images in daylight. Low light shots would be weak obviously. The flash helps though. Video from the rear camera shoots 1080p and turns out pretty decent. 720p slowmo is a crap on my opinion. Front camera shoots very good photos in outdoor, however indoor shots in low and artificial lights turns to be plastic coated and lack detail indoors. Overall a very capable camera considering the price.
This is my personal opinion and experience. :)

For normal usage it last 1 & half to 2 days. For medium u wl get 1 day. The device is highly optimized so battery backup is good. If U r a heavy user and a heavy gamer performance and battery is not good enough.
Can anyone help me out solving the issue
I am using the Moto G3
1, I am terribly facing battery heating issue especially when using the mob Data.
2, system performance is low comparing to other brand with same configuration.
bhanu, 31 Oct 2015Does it supports MHL to TVno, it does not support mhl
the phones temperature remains 4-5 degrees more than the normal temperature.
if the temperature is below 50 degrees it is totally normal.
all the guys out here must post reviews after proper study and not blindly.
the moto g has no heating issues
and don't install apps that slow down the phone.
For those who face battery drain issue after the latest 23.51.65 osprey update..
Just do a factory reset after taking a backup of data and the battery drain issue will be solved..
This update shows some better battery management too..
Nothing new.. That's the same previous update with some bugs cleared (list not disclosed)..
Hi Guys, an OTA update (54 MB) received today on my new MOTO G3. Any ideas reg this software update?
