Unfortunate Failure

moto4timio has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

I have had to replace this phone 3 times in 8 months. It would not boot up. Motorola customer service do not support this phone anymore. I can't see why. It is still a company brand phone. I've been reading about how Motorola has been dropping the ball when it comes to updating. Also adding performance apps like sound and bass enhancements can cause loss the speaker to fell. So add apps at your risk.

This is an amazing phone. The user experience is at par with other phones in the same range. Its Qualcomm® Snapdragon® 200 CPU Adreno 302 GPU deliver a fantastic output. This phone runs on the latest stock Android 4.4.4 KitKat with a promised upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Talking about its design, its sleek and ergonomic structure keeps it far ahead in looks and the handset fits in your palm perfectly. Both speakers front facing improves ringing and video viewing experience. The only con here is the bulky device, weighing around 140 grams, twice as heavy as other smart phones.
Next comes the camera. Although much cursed, its 5 mp rear camera is capable of taking stunning images in daylight, however it struggles largely in low light conditions due to lack of flash and while taking close ups due to its fixed focus nature. There's no front camera to talk about.
The phone has 4GB of internal storage (about 2.16GB usable) and it suffices all the general purposes and average gaming quite brilliantly. The KitKat Android apparently doesn't allow some applications to be installed directly on the external sdcard, some of them can be later moved to the external storage, up to 32GB. The 'move media' option on the settings allows you to move your songs, pictures, videos and other data to sdcard in order to vacate the internal storage and ensure smooth running of the phone.
Built-in applications like Motorola Migrate and Motorola Assist are quite useful unlike the malware stuffed in other...

Best Phone @ 7K

Excellent phone in this budget, you will get all the features of the big budgeted phone except camera quality due to missing flash and auto focus. Have a very elegant look in comparison to other phones in the market.
