I've had this for 3 months. Crashes all the time. Awful battery. Fine other than that
I have tried g5 and g4 plus. G4 plus is way better.
For this £, only 2GB RAM is not good value. Phones like the Huawei P8 Lite 2017 offer 3GB and were cheaper when sold by argos a few weeks ago.

Cold.
doesn't have NFC either unlike the Plus, I went for the new E4 and must say it's a cracking phone for the money plus I can use Android Pay as it includes NFC
i'll hot it. i bought my G5 a few weeks ago at 164 quid. for an inexpensive phone its all good, loving it. cheers.
Excellent phone for the price and with the £20 discount, even much better HOT

If your phone crashes, get it to Motorola for warranty repair. They will sort it out. All electronic devices may fail or may be defective and hence the warranty, so use it.

It isn't an excellent phone for the price. The processor is weaker than it's predecessor and it doesn't have enough ram. This is why it's crashing.
Surely a price drop due to the imminent release of G5S.

It's a shame it's £70 more than this as it does add a more premium body to the phone which was my major complaint against the g4 which didn't even last a year for me.
Looks like this is dual SIM. Can anyone confirm?
I have a Moto G3 as a spare phone. It is more reliable than my shoddy iPhone 7 that overheats, lags and runs out of battery ten times faster but is all round slower which is the reason I upgraded. Tempted to sell my iPhone and get an upgraded Moto but I may wait for the next one reading comments.
Got this for a tenner less from Giff Gaff the other week. Had a Moto G2 before hand that lasted me a couple of years with no issues. This has been great too, none of the bugs reported earlier in the thread, so far at least

I'm very happy with it. Don't let the scaremongers warning about 2Gb and slow processor worry you if like me you just use it for email, facebook and general browsing. Maybe gamers want to look elsewhere but its spot on for me.

I've just moved from a G4 Play to the E4 Plus and must say very impressed with it. I'd assumed the E series was lower spec than the G based on previous gen phones, but this seems to be upgrades all round - 3GB / 16GB up from 1GB/16GB which helps improve performance. The battery is much bigger than normal at 5000mAh and does last well though needs the Fast Charger it comes with to charge in a sensible amount of time. It also makes the phone heavier but it now feels like a quality product and for about the same price as this deal for the G5

Trouble is G4 and G5 are made by Lenovo, they don't seem to be as well made as the g1, 2 and 3.

Is that true? Who made the E4?

Motorola
For the brave-hearted (i.e not bothered about a warranty) the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 direct from China absolutely mullers this phone on specs. Most of my family now own a Redmi Note 4 lol. No problems so far. How much is a warranty worth?
Don't rely on warranty a scratch or dent and it will void it. Shame as phones are less reliable now under Lenovo. I've got the 3gb from Amazon when it was down to about 130.
Folks, if anyone wants to go for the Moto E4 Plus, it is same price at John Lewis, with two year warranty. And it is available in gold colour as well.

You can get the dual sim with 3GB on Amazon ATM. £15 for an extra gig seems worth it.

I've had a 3Gb G5 for a little longer than that and the phone itself has NEVER crashed - in-fact I don't think I've even rebooted it since I got it, I have NO idea what the boot animation looks like ;0

Battery is fine but you MUST enable auto screen brightness or keep the brightness slider low, the last 30% basically doubles the battery drain...

The charger is quite amazeballs - mine recharges from 15%->100% in under 2 hours but more usefully it goes from 15%>50% in 30mins

Warranties are useless for this - I tried with my last phone (which was hard-resetting - I suspected a failing battery) but they pointed to a TINY mark on the case (I'd never seen it as it was inside the protective cover I used - the mark was likely from dirt moving inside the cover) and said "that's damage - get lost"
G5S & G5S PLUS are about to be released with much better specs
Lenovo taking over was the death of the MotoG

RIP

Same here. Was looking to upgrade a G2 which was a great phone but went for the Xiaomi Mi5 64gb. Roughly the same cost as this G5 but blows it out of the water specs wise
Trash deal, the Amazon link above is even better.

I wouldn't say the G5 is worse. The screen is bigger on the G4 which will please some people but others will appreciate the smaller phone and higher pixel density of the G5.

The G4 has 4 cores at 1.5 Ghz and 4 at 1.2 GHz whereas the G5 has all 8 cores at 1.4 GHz and an upgraded GPU.

Only Moto G 4 Play's got 4 cores but Moto G 4 and Moto G 4 Plus got 8 cores

Read what I actually said. The G4 has 4 cores at 1.5 Ghz and 4 cores at 1.2 Ghz. That's 8 cores in total.
