Expensive for a 1gb Ram
I have owned and used this phone for around a year. I paid £89 on the Motorola web site.

The data is faster on EE than Tesco (O2) so thats network, not internal processor capacity. It pairs with any BT car/device I use. It handles all my emails, calls, texts etc and works just fine for all those functions. The battery lasts around 2-3 days with light use and 1 with heavy use.

BBC iPlayer works fine. I use Mapmyride/mapmywalk in the UK and Europe and it handles that without any hicoughs. I play music (Genesis/classical/BBC R4 podcasts) and the sound is good. I use Amazon to shop and Kindle to read books just fine. I have BBC sport loaded and have no complaints. Trainline works a treat and I but tickets using it. Kaspersky protects it and doesnt slow it.

BUT MOST OF ALL

If I drop it, I dont give a monkey's vs owning a 200/300/500/800 phone that, frankly, does nothign extra for me.

Conversely, my 17 year old doesn't want one because he doesn't have a life. He has a phone instead. What a bunch of presonality depleted ****s we have bred.

Nice
Expensive for a 1gb Ram
Voted hot thinking these came with 2GB as standard; didn't read the specs. 1GB just isn't enough. My bad
I've got one. Think I paid about £75 last time Motorola did this sort of offer.
As a facebook/email/phone/texter sort of person this is a great phone. Can't say I've noticed any problems with only having 1Gb RAM. It's got a big, clear screen, but it still fits in a back pocket. Battery life is great. It comes with no bloatware, is well made, and everything works! OK it's not top of the range but hey - it's £90!
Sorry Will never order any thing from Moto direct again would rather order from a chinese seller on ebay with 10 feedback
The MotoG4 is a very nice phone, but 1 Gb is not good.

Have to say that I never had a problem ordering mine earlier in the year. Communications, delivery were good etc.

What problems did you have?

not cheap enough for 1Gb and a mediocre camera. Removable battery is a plus though

Ordered Thankyou
play model is the cheapo version of the others
I really like Moto phones, great value... BUT most of them don't appear to have a compass / magnetometer (to display direction when you're on google maps). I appreciate that many won't care about that, but I do. Can anyne tell me a model of Moto phone that DOES have a built in compass?

Mrs Fluff has one and it's quite nice. I do wonder about updating my elderly S3 and am tempted but, having just updated the S3 to Nougat (LineageOS), the phone is freed of the Samsung crap and has almost doubled the standby time. It's actually still quite a pleasant phone.
Ghost Touch is a pain in the rear .......
Something similar with 2gb?

The ghost touch problem mostly affects the 5.5" G4 and G4 Plus. This is a different model.
I had one of these for about 2 months. It's certainly acceptable for a low use user.

The only issue I had with it was that it became very slow when trying to use it as a sat nav at the same time as streaming music over Bluetooth. The music would keep pausing, and the maps would become unresponsive. It's not a phone for running more than one app at a time.

It also couldn't use Android Auto without major slowdown.

Note that this model DOES have NFC, unlike the more expensive models that don't! This is one of main reasons I chose this model myself, and Android Pay works great on it. Whether the overdue, promised Android Nougat update will ever materialize is another matter though.
Picked this phone up about 6mo ago.
The good:
* battery life
* NFC
* it was cheap (so no worries about scratches etc)
The bad:
* 1GB RAM disappears quickly when running more than a small number of apps
* camera quality not great
* the ordering process from moto was pretty poor (took a *long* time to arrive)
* no sign of Android 7 or 8 on the horizon
For the price, it's not bad ... certainly handy as a *phone* (not a "do everything" device) you can just shove in your pocket care-free.
Why buy this over the same priced 'Moto C plus.'
Iirc this was/is about the same as the older G3 in speed and whatnots.

The C Plus is a better phone in general use, from actual use of these two.

Ok it doesn't have a few of the sensors, if that is something you need.

AH, OK, I have the 5.5" version .... without the Ghost Touch this is a cracking phone!

Great can you get me one? or do I need a time machine?

Don't use a gel case with these. It confuses the proximity sensor when you make calls. Apart from that..... All good.
As a G4 Play owner I wouldn't recommend it. It just about does the job but it's hamstrung by only having 1GB. E.g. Use Google maps then try and make a phone call, cue 20 second delay.
Go for the Alcatel A3 XL, cheap as chips in Tesco and 2GB ram to boot for less than £80. Had a go on it instore and it was great

You get the phone also
As long as you have less than 4 apps opened this is a great phone. Has nfc, so works with android pay.
