Found 28th Jun 2015
Picked up my Moto G £95(£20 gift card) phone in white form Tesco, on way out went in to Mobile phone shop, and they sell black phones on vodafine for £80. Returned white right away. This is a better offer since to get the gift card I had to top up by £10.

It's a steal ! I bought one some days ago from Asda Bromsgrove. Eighty quid plus £1.99 (or less) to unlock it, courtesy of Ebay and there you are, a great 4g phone, thank you very much !

is this a better phone than a galaxy s3?

The software is, the hardware, debatable. The S3 was a flagship the Moto G never was. I'd get the Moto G because it performs better.

If you still have a manufactures warranty (I think it's 1 year with Motorola) then yes it would.
It won't void your retailer warranty though.

The S3 has more things going for it than the Moto G but I'd still go with the Moto G

Fairly sure that the Galaxy S3 doesn't have 4G.

The S3 is an absolutely awful phone these days, especially with the crappy old touchwiz on it. It's painfully slow to use and you'll never get a new update on it again. Moto G on the other hand will likely see the update to Android M when it's released.

Camera and possibly gaming capabilities aside, the Moto G destroys the S3.

Fairly sure only EE was selling it.

Tesco locked phones don't have preloaded network apps or feature the networks logo on the splash screen, much like how it's meant when bought unlocked, other networks do I believe.

Something to consider if the apps can't be removed or the splash screen is too much!

reboot the phone. I have this from time to time. Turning it off and on usually clears it. Anti virus apps tend to cause this too. Re-install fixes that

My son has the s3 & the Mrs has the Moto G. They both have FM radio which my expensive phone doesn't . :-(
I prefer the design and feel of the G. Motorola is doing a 5.1.1 soak test on the G at the moment, so you'll at least get a decent update to it. My son's s3 isn't 4G.

At this point in time, I would choose the G.

are all models ( serial numbers) of this unlockable through eBay ?

easily unlockable at ebay.

I enjoy the moto e which I'm using the only difficulty is a slight lack of power and even which the memory card in use, the internal memory fill s up in no time and your constantly trying to free up space, ...it seems that even when you transfer an app to the sd card some must remain internally so it still fills up pretty quickly...

Yep. Bought S3 Lte version on EE about 2 years ago courtesy of HUKD. Bit on slow side now...been pondering on rooting it if I can get a decent guide.

True. Got the Tesco Mobile Moto G 4G that had no preloaded Tesco crap. Just simple unlock code from eBay that was it. Could do with another one but not sure about this Vodafone locked Moto G 4G unless anyone can confirm.

Mine was the same until I did a factory reset now's it very good, if you are going to sell you will have to reset anyway.
