I have been looking out to get one for my Mrs for the past week - but was out of stock. Her 1st Gen Moto G was smashed by our son - so she needed one badly........I am pleased I waited out

For those having concerns about lag etc. there is an interesting comparison video between 2GB and 1GB https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgM_dE6EMOk

As my wife is not a heavy user this will do her fine.

Only 1gb ram in Android phone. Will run out of memory all the time. Better spend little more and get decent phone with at least 2gb ram. Nowadays latest Android phones come with 6gb ram.

Bit of an exaggeration....About 6 phones have been released with 6Gb of Ram and they are generally flagships, even then it's just for bragging rights, Android still doesn't need that much... 1-2Gb is the
norm for phones in this price band...

Wileyfox Spark is worth a look while it's on offer at Amazon for £69.99

Think I would rather grab the Idol 3 brand new for the same price, slightly more ram and 1080 x 1920 screen.

Edit: my mistake, this is the 4.7" which has a screen res of 720 x 1280

Not at all bad. £10 more gets a new one at Vodafone, but they have no stock. So, heat for your deal!

Hence the word slightly, what's acceptable for one person is different than for another.

Most people prefer phones they can get from the UK with all the back up they come with as opposed to the ones you seem to be alluding to that typically are from the Far East.

Nicely spotted didn't notice it was the 4.7" model, long day should be asleep X)

Guys you should really learn how android manages RAM.

the whole idea of lollypop and marshmallow according to Google was that phones with as little as half a gig of ram could work fine.it was predicted to be less ram intensive.all major sites like techradar mentioned this.android should run fine on one gb of ram.two gb at most.the 6gb of ram phones are stupid.it just encourages waste and makes manufacturers lazy in ram management.it is ofcorse now a selling point more ram better phone.they run out of ideas.im not a fan of apple phones but they have the right idea small increments each new generation but software that is made to run to perfectection on lesser specs instead of the android steroid approach pumping full of higher numbers

I agree with some of what you are saying until you got to Apple. They run the older models into the ground with the new iOS updates to drive an upgrade. Or that's certainly how it feels.
#18
I use this phone and the 1 GB of ram is fine. Been using it a couple of months. The 8gb storage is more of a restriction, but not one that has stopped me from having any apps that I wanted. That said I don't ever game on my phone.

Tried to order but it got all they way to the end, after credit card and says to check my address. Confirmed it was not my card, the bank said payment was approved but o2 did not complete. Phoned o2 and could not do an order over the phone as not in there system or tell me if anything was wrong (near perfect option did not show in their system - computer says no). Has anyone managed to purchase this recently / last few hours?

I waited a week or more for these to come back into stock. Gave up and bought a new one at £99 instead, and took delivery Yesterday !!
Still very pleased with with it, and can claw some money back by selling the 3 free back covers that come with it.

As to memory and specs etc.. there seems to be an ongoing trend to must have MOAR!!! it's always better.
Not necessarily. I'm upgrading from a 512mb Huawei G300 that was still able to do everything I wanted out of a phone (all be it slowly), so I'm sure this Moto G3 will do just fine, first impressions confirm this.
I don't want to listen to my music from the cloud, whilst playing GTA, and Twittering on FaceChatWhatsLinkdBook, whilst controlling my heating at home.

I did also consider the Idol 3 (whilst it was a tenner more) but decided the backup from Alcatel would not match Moto, almost all mentions I found of Alcatel stated their support was almost non existent. Much the same story with Wileyfox ...

If you can get one of these at this price then I would say it's a bargain for a good reliable phone that will do what most people want of it.

If it's anything like the brand new one I bought, they don't charge up front for the credit, they just send a SIM for you to TopUp to activate it. I already use a GiffGaff SIM so just used that (no unlock necessary, another reason I bought from O2) and have just stuck the O2 SIM in a drawer.

Idol 3 did get updated to Marshmallow though and it was meant to be a really nice update, sometimes its impatience and not lack of support.

Will support continue the same with moto g now its owned by Lenovo?

To be honest I've never understood the need to always be updating, its not always the case, the latest is the greatest.

Anyone who wants a moto g should use the" Email me when you have stock" on Vodafone, or just check periodically, they have been going in and out of stock all week, they had some yesterday.

Thanks for this tip, I was getting confused not being able to see a buy option.

The 3rd gen 8gb is suitable for my needs as I'm only upgrading from a 1st gen Moto G to be able to add a 32gb sd for space for music.

Is this based on experience? Because in my experience of the moto g first gen which I'm holding in my hands now and have had for nearly 3 years this has never happened. 6GB of ram on a phone. My desktop only has 8 and that doesn't struggle with demanding tasks. 6GB of ram in a phone is nothing more than marketing bait for the have to have latest and greatest bunch.

I'm also still on a first gen Moto G and it works, but I'm frequently aware of it being a low ram device with it's pauses, slow downs and screen redraws.

That I bought that for £90 two years ago and nothing has come along as a compelling budget upgrade yet is really disappointing though.

Brand new, quad-core CPU, 2GB ram, MicroSD slot, removable battery and UK warranty. I believe that deal deserves more heat than this, "Like new" 1GB Ram Moto. Sorry OP, not voting here.
