I have had nothing but issues with this phone. I have not been able to set up my voice mail even with the assistance of "experts". This phone is NOT user friendly. The updates are useless and only make the phone more difficult to use and confusing. This is the most regrettable purchase I have ever made.
Great phone at a great price!
I read many, but not all, of the negative reviews. Most of the complaints are carrier, lock phone, and crapware issues. I bought an unlocked phone with no ISP crapware and signed up for Mint Mobile. No problems whatsoever except for me catching up with Android 11 features.

Everytime I try to make a call it usually don't work. My messages come a day late there's a lot that don't even come through. I being hacked I pay the extra to see all outgoing calls it always says 123 as the number with military time. Someone has Firebase Api something on here I factory reset it over 200 times but it does not help or change anything and when I call for help no one can ever fix my problems horrible service The only thing that makes them suck is they don't even care.
The Moto g stylus 2021 phone sucks It stopped working in 2 weeks Target wouldnt take it back with a recipt so i paid $300. for a phone that wont factory reset. Its tied to a gmail that i cant get into hacked and the customer servive is nothing
Piece of junk shud say it all..Only 8 months old.Texts may take 11 hrs.to come through..My callers cant hear me though I sit right in front of my picture window.I even go outside in the middle of my yard to talk .....no better...Im tired of people asking me where I was last night when I was home and the phone is on the arm of my recliner..When I finish a call the phone goes to camera though I never touched any button or squeezed the perimeter of the case.I dont understand these problems as I had a Motorola flip phone back in the day and it was superb.........
Moto g stylus ...seemed ok out of tge box .. goes fownhill from there .. its flakey flipoant and tge keyboard is obnoxiius . 3 out 10 ..motorola made some cool stuff like tge v3 i had but this stylus just sux tge bag
i dont understand what all the negative comments did to mess up their phones mine has had no issues for a year straight now.
After download some apps mob touch got hang I don't know what's happening with this.
I have this phone about a year now. Don't do it. It keeps dropping calls. NO ONE can hear me, I must use bluetooth devices in order to talk on a call. The apps keep freezing, I miss notifications, the sound doesnt always sync up. Its a completely useless phone. I really wanted this to be a decent phone. But I am very disappointed. I just ordered a new phone, something hopefully that will be much more reliable. I have lost count how many times this phone has failed during simple things like just using google maps. With nothing else running. It freezes and now I'm missing turns! I cannot stress enough to stay away from this phone! Oh and now you can't even use it as a trade in!?!?
I got this phone for free a year ago and I absolutely hate it! my calls drop, it says no internet connection even though I have all my bars and WIFI. and the camera isn't as good as I hoped it would be.
The good thing about this phone though is that when I listen to music at night the speaker is amazing I lay the phone on my chest and its like I have surround sound. probably the only pro of this phone.
I have never disliked a phone more than this Moto G stylus. My family bought 3 and none of us like it. I'm going to reactivate my Galaxy pH. Even though it is a few years old it works better than this. Moto needs to refund everyone for these phones. I will never by Moto again.
I would honestly say I love this phone. It is a good phone for how cheap it is. I had a $350. phone before and this phone works better than it did. Sure there are a few issues, but all in all I'm happy with it. One issue I have had is when I put the phone on speaker in a phone call and the switch back to regular sound you cannot hear anything on the phone. You either go back on speaker or hang up and try your call again. Another issue is the phone can lag a little when drawing or writing on the screen with the stylus. If you can look past those two things it is a great phone.
Pure trash........ A lot of lagging, constantly having to touch the screen multiple times to get a response, internet completely shutting down even with connection and having to reboot it to get reconnected. Text and call notifications shutting off on it's own..... Etc. DON'T BUY THIS GARBAGE!!!
mrjojo812, 25 Jul 2021This phone is GARBAGE- DO NOT BUY.. I thought it was my particular model because I bought the ... moreMine doesn't connect past LTE. I have to reset regularly and have no connection where others do. I need 4G people!
Overall the phone is decent, but very disappointing when your phone gets hung up sending photos when you have full bars or when it continually had problems connecting to previously connected Bluetooth devices. That's pretty pathetic and pretty much rings what works otherwise be a great phone for the money. It lacks a little in the photo world, but is suitable. This is my second Moto G phone, but did to the aforementioned things I'll likely be going back to a Galaxy.
Anonymous, 21 May 2021I feel like that's your bad lol... It's a $199 phone... If you've spent $600 th... moreI had the same problems as this person. Got a warranty replacement. Same problems and the replacement came from Motorola. And then I bought a brand new one from Amazon. With the same problems. Is your phone is unlocked ?because I'm noticing that unlock models tend not to carry or suffer from the problems and glitches that the locked models that are sold in phone stores. I thought what you were thinking-maybe the particular phone I got was just the bad one and for such a low price point I mean what do you expect? (LoL). But to encounter the same problems with the original purchase,a warranty factory replacement, and a brand new one.? Too much of coincidence for me.
This phone is GARBAGE- DO NOT BUY.. I thought it was my particular model because I bought the phone brand new from Boost. After a entire month of dropping calls,no internet even when connected to Wi-Fi, glitches, crashes, phone constantly rebooting, apps shutting down and starting on their own, losing contacts,voice messages not working, text messages disappearing. Got a warranty replacement from Motorola with the same damn problems. Since it was refurbished and I figured that was the problem I bought a brand new Moto g stylus from Amazon. Same goddamn problems. Do not buy this phone you are wasting your money and your time. For the people who says that there's works great they're lucky. I bought me a Samsung. The cell phone still wouldn't even take the phone back because as he puts it it has too many problems for them to accept it for returns. Even the people selling the phone knows it's garbage.
This phone is a peice of junk. DO NOT BUY. Call quality is poor, sketchy or drops altogether. Sometimes I cannot call out at all! No cellular connection. Incoming text messages are sometimes late & outgoing messages freeze. I will stick to Samsung!
I'm very pleased with this phone. The stylus allows for fine clicking without having to zoom everything, great to detailed UIs. Plenty fast enough but could be faster.
Camera is surprisingly good, even in low light.
A soft case is a must. Screen protector not needed.
Android 11 and regular security updates.
Tons of room on this thing.
Incredible stereo sound quality.
Bluetooth works great. Sensors work good. GPS is accurate.
Previous phone was Nexus 6. Grown to have become big Motorola fan. Durable build.
