Great price, warning though, had mine a year and not had a single software update - heat added

I'd also query the warranty status... Isn't this the one that gives a free replacement screen? If so, would Moto cover this in the UK if buying from china? I'd doubt it...
In any case, do bear in mind you are buying this without a warranty. Buyers risk and all that...

​pertinent point since the premium this device sells for is dependent upon that extended warranty/screen guarantee.

Had this for about 6 months.

Be warned - yes the screen won't shatter, but it will scratch up like anything. Very very soft compared to gorilla glass. It's essentially just plastic. Mine looked awful very quickly. Wish I'd fitted a screen protector, but as the screen didn't feel particularly responsive in the first place I avoided it.

You can of course replace the top layer for £20 yourself if (when) the scratches bother you.

Which brings me to my second problem with this phone.

The shattershield lens is invariably out of stock and the only place you can buy a replacement is directly from Motorola. I waited months for it to be restocked, but finally gave up and sent my handset back.

Used to get bloody hot too...

Motorola's after sales 'support' is abysmal, even when you've bought the phone directly from them. I dread to think how they would be if you'd purchased from a third party.

Where did you buy the phone from? Did you get a refund without any problems?

Amazon.

And yeah... no trouble at all.

Good phone, though I'd be wary buying from a non-UK buyer. These phones suffer with a very common fault resulting in vertical lines showing on the screen. It happened twice with mine within the first 6 months of ownership. Each time motorola replaced the screen.

I'd be worried that the fault would recur once the phone was out of warranty. You're legally entitled to a refund after ONE repair fails, if the fault was reported within 6 months of purchase. Motorola won't admit that though.

​Hence the reason why I ebayed it after its second repair
