This review is after I updated my motorola moto g 4g into android 5.1 lollipop. Pretty amazing device if you ask me. No lags and everything. Can run 3d games too. Overall, one of the very best budget phones out there. I'm a very satisfied user.

Build quality 10/10 Pretty solid for a budget device. No creaks that I can hear. Very nice matte finish on the back for easy gripping.
Reception 9/10
Call quality 9/10 It's very loud and is audible, But the sound is quite hollow.
Internet 10/10 Very fast on 3g already. Haven't tested for 4g yet since it's not compatible with my country. Bummer.
Multimedia 9/10 Sound quality and watching movies is decent although I could've waited for the moto g 2014 for a bigger screen.
Camera 9/10 I'm not particular about a phone's camera because that's what DSLR's are for. Pretty decent picture quality if you ask me.
UI speed 10/10 Nearly stock android is very fast. I salute motorola for not coating it with different UI's that can hamper the speed of the phone.
Everyday usage 10/10 Since i use this phone as my daily driver, I can say that it's pretty amazing.
Text input 9/10 I installed swiftkey since I think it's better at recognizing my text inputs than the stock keyboard.
Display 10/10 HD. HD. HD. for a budget phone is amazing. The colors pop up and i really have no complaints about it.
Battery 9/10 It pretty much lasts for a day. The battery saverreally helps in extending the battery life.


  • HD
  • Amazingly Cheap for the specs
  • Fast UI speed

Fast phone, but still a few rough edges.

jjwieland has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I like the speed, the microSD card slot, and the long battery life. I miss the Samsung versions of things like the keyboiard and calendar. I'm currently using SwiftKey. I have yet to use the camera in earnest.

Just got the 4.4.4 update. Now if I only had a class 10 microSD card to try out...

Build quality 10/10
Reception 10/10
Call quality 9/10
Internet 10/10 Does 4G on AT&T's network.
Multimedia 10/10
Camera 6/10 I haven't really used it yet.
UI speed 10/10
Everyday usage 10/10
Text input 6/10 I miss the Samsung's keyboard on my old S3.
Display 10/10
Battery 9/10 Battery life is noticeable better than my old S3. Battery is not user-replaceable.


  • I like the speed and the simplicity.
  • Good battery life.
  • Has an FM radio
  • Has microSD slot
  • 4G LTE


  • I miss Samsung's enhancements - mostly the keyboard and the calendar app.
  • Class 10 memory card problems -- supposed to be fixed with the 4.4.4 update.
  • Lacks user-replaceable battery.

Internet 8/10 Speaker is very loud but on the back of the device.

One of the best cheap phones.

ChuchucA has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

A solid and hard phone. Fast and reliable.

It lacks multimedia services, my other phone was a Xperia, so I was used to have good alternative for handling media. (I even installed a Walkman APK). And NFC services.

Really great screen display. I dislike big phones, this phone has the right size for people like me.

Overall a good cheap phone that has just the right things to run well and nothing gimmicky.

Bad Phone

haosorio has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

I had a Galaxy Note 3, then I tested a iPhone 6 and now I`m fighting against this lame phone. It has a really small screen, with even smaller bottoms, so it`s so dificult to write. It has no enough RAM on it, so sometimes you need to close some apps. The email system is a complete desaster. Google should try to improve this, because IOS has a much better system. I like some stuff, like the alarms systems and that the phone goes to mute when you are in a meeting, very usefull.
