The Chinese model of this phone is being sold for 1499 Chinese Yuan, which is roughly the same price we are paying for the UK model with no Dual SIM feature and half the storage space.

AnonD-73353, 12 Mar 2015What's worse is that this should be at least had LTE in the first place! Yes this phone should have been 4G Dual SIM in the first place, just like in China.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2015Good news from a god phone. There are many city in UK where is not 4G and many houses with no ... moreNot strickly correct.
I am with Virgin and I should be able to get free phone calls in the underground if I had a smartphone.
The UK and French models are 8GB Single SIM devices.
In Brazil and China they get the 4G 16GB Dual SIM models, but when they finally decide to release the European models not only do we not get the Dual SIM feature, we get half the storage space on top of that.

I would have chosen the new Moto G 4G 2nd Gen as my first smartphone, but I am really disappointed by what they have done, not to mention falsely advertising that it did have a Dual SIM feature.
Its's almost like they removed the feature so they would have something to add to a new device when that is released. And when that device is released they have subtracted some other feature, which they intend to add to the next device after that. And so on, and so forth.
Keep you buying the next thing, hoping that it will be exactly what you want.
Here is another message from motorola uk which confirms the UK version is single SIM only;
"Thank you for contacting Motorola and for interest in our new device."
"We would like to inform you that the MotoG 2nd generation LTE has one SIM slot."

The data plans that you can get as add-ons for your voice sim are too expensive for what you get.
I am really disappointed by this and I don't think I will be buying it afterall. I think I will have to go with a Lumia 640 XL LTE Dual Sim, when/ if they become available (you never know what they'll do to screw something up).
And still no Lollipop for the original...
My Android interest is lost! Joining the dark side and buying an iPhone. Because f*** you Qualcomm!
Yep, spoke to Motorola before going ahead with my pre-order, and they confirmed the website page has not been updated to say that this new version is only single SIM and also still only 8GB memory so not same as the one sold in Brazil.
basically, all you gain is 4G and a slightly larger battery (needed for 4G anyway), lose the dual SIM feature, all other features are same as old model :-(
Hence, I'm not buying it.
As far as I can tell, there's a SIM tradeoff between the two new 2015 models: the new 3G version comes with a double SIM, the new 4G 2015 version comes with a single SIM.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2015Only the first generation has with 4GOh boy... can you read the whole news at all?!?
AnonD-64830, 12 Mar 2015Funny this phone has been on sale for a while in the UK as a 4g model.Only the first generation has with 4G
Good news from a god phone. There are many city in UK where is not 4G and many houses with no internet and you can not make phone-coal from the tube in London and they are asking huge prices compare with Romania (where you can make phone-coal from the tube and there is not line rental ). UK is behind like technology covering compare with Romania.
No processor upgrade? Shame, even the more budget Motorola Moto E 4G was upgraded to Snapdragon™ 410
