Found 15th Oct 2015
was looking about for a cheap smartphone for a family member when i came across this deal (yes i know it is only for those with a pay as you go number with virgin/02 but still a good deal for anyone with an old sim card with those two companies.

i found the menu's on the phone too pushed together. phone itselfwa good but the screen and menu in this way made it hard viewing
I'm looking for good quality mob with good camera.i have contract the handset has been not good.
Its good price ,wish it was sim free. Heat added
I suspect that this is the gelded 1GB/8GB version (Available sim free on Amazon for £144). The version reviewers get, with 2GB DRAM and 16GB storage is £169.99 on Amazon.

I find the menus fine, If you're talking about the large standard icons on the screens/drawers making it seem cramped then I get where you're coming from but as I use Nova as my default launcher its a non issue as they all get scaled down and by default the screens show more.

​ you may want to invest in a pair of glasses not a phone.

yeah i was i think it was that the main launcher icons were fine it was just the settings menu etc just puts me off and was hurting my eyes might just be me tho but i bought a meizu note 2 and found it lots better.

i wear glasses when i need them - it might be a personal preference but i had 2 motorolas and found them the same - even found a lumia 535 more easy to view

Shame there doesn't seem to be a dual sim version
No compass or led notification in this phone, such a shame and a downgrade for many previous MotoG owners
It still find it strange that Motorola could get the 1st Gen so right and the 3rd Gen so wrong....

yeah, seems very odd.... I have 1st and 2nd gen: the 1st Gen is still a great phone, the 2nd gen is not better other than having 2 sims which I use but otherwise it's not quite as good (slightly slower, screen not as sharp) but the 3rd gen just seems to have lost the plot considering the competition.

TBH, I could have forgiven the lack of a 1080p screen. I could even overlook the fact that the chipset is seriously dated. What I can't forgive is the blatant attempt to gouge the price! I think the official list price is something like £170. £140 on upgrade is about as good as it gets. When you can get a Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 for £99 (admittedly on offer) it just highlights just how out of touch, the Moto G pricing is. Such a shame...

agreed, the Moto G 1st gen at £120 ish from Tesco was superb
I read some dreaded reviews about gearbest anyone with real experience?
