    I have had zero issues with boost moto g

    I’ve had a Motorola Defy+ (on Android 2.3.6) for 2 years + and have occasionally seen all the above faults on that too, so I don’t think it’s just Moto G or the KitKat update that does it – but I will still be upgrading to a Moto G soon and going for the Kit Kat update, ‘cos I think Google/Motorola have got cheap smartphones sewn up at the moment.

    Had this phone since February and it worked like a dream until the latest KitKat update! It was giving me around 8 days of standby, with data, wi-fi and GPS switched off until it was needed…now I’d be lucky to get 2, even when switched to “Airplane mode” :(

    It all started one day when I had about 60% battery, which then dropped to 1% in an instant and the handset switched off. I have recharged using a Sony Ericsson charger (within Motorola’s own parameters – Don’t supply a charger in the UK) using the suggested methods to re-calibrate the unit and while the charge level doesn’t just drop off, the battery is discharging at an alarming rate (compared to what was achievable).

    I have switched all sync options off or to their lowest settings, but something is going crazy in the background that is working this handset like a dog and draining my battery. In part, this could be down to unexpected signal loss as the phone often shows no bars when I would expect to see at least 3. Even when I have 3bars, I go to the “button page” (you know, where you can switch stuff on and off, and get to settings) and the signal is shown in a muddy red (I think, cos I’m colour blind).

    Visit the official forum and you’ll see Motorola “Experts” (ha, ha) clutching at straws! They should have re-released the previous version, so that people had a functioning mobile while they worked on the problem and a solution in their lab!

    I can not turn anything else off to improve the situation, so what have the muppets mis-coded that is causing such a drain? This is obviously a software and not a hardware issue, so hurry up and get it sorted Motorola!

    Hi , I`ve been using my moto g now for about 4-5 months now and the only issue I had when the kitkat was placed onto it was once it showed 1% of battery even though it was fully charged but after a hard reset it`s been 100% perfect ever since .I must admit that they should have left it on jellybean because not everyone wants to change there firmware every 6 months especially when the moto g was operating fine on jellybean so why fix something that is not broken ?Apart from that slight glitch it`s been great with no signal loss , airplane mode , sim card issues what so ever !I hope Google/Motorola iron out any faults with this phone because for the money I think there better than most flagship phones .Thanks for reading this review and lets all keep intouch about the Moto G …Cheers

    My moto g is totally unreliable, it drops calls, sticks in the middle of composing text, and often looses the camera . V disappointed

    On my third Moto G and second SIM card in just over 2 months because phones would not see the SIM card. How do I prevent the phone from downloading Android 4.4.2? As received it runs on 4.3 but getting messages every hour or so to download the new operating system.

    .. Well for me I have it on boost mobile and I’m not experiencing any problems that are listed up there. This is what I experienced , when I try to download an app from Google Play. If you download an app you get an arrow from the status bar right? Unfortunately my downloads just completely stop.. The arrow disappears from the status bar ): even though on Google play, the app still says “installing” or claims that its downloading it won’t finish. Its just completely stops! Wtf. For example: if I want to download angry birds it would download halfway, then all of the sudden the arrow or downloading logo from the status bar disappears.. I go to Google play and go on the angry birds app page( the page where u click download and rate) , it says its still says its downloading but its gets stuck at the same percentage of download! It doesn’t finish ;.: why does this happen? Does this count as affective and I’m able to exchange for a new one? This website says there might be an update to fix the bugs (in listed from above only I guess) will the update fix my downloading issue?

    The only problem I’ve had with the update is with Play Music. I’ve had this phone for about a month now. I’ve notice that it can’t pay music with the “wmv” format for some reason. It can play mp3s without a problem. This problem didn’t show up until I updated to KitKat 4.4.4.
