  •  Simplicity & Performance 12 August 2015

    5/5 stars

    By Upendra Bapat

    This is the phone that I was looking for. No fancy, no frills but smooth performance. Despite the 5 inch screen the phone is not bulky to handle & it also has a good textured back cover which helps the handling. 13 MP back camera & 5 MP front camera is more than sufficient for me as I rarely use the mobile phone camera. The overall performance is what matters. The 2 GB RAM is the heart of the phone & it makes most functions run in a smooth manner without lag. The internal memory is 16GB & with an SD card upto 64 GB you don't really have to worry about the space. You get the latest android 5.1.1 version to work with. Added features of the Moto software gives you option to set predetermined profiles as per your schedule during the day. The battery lasts for a day fairly easily with normal operations. Frequently called contacts are shown on separate interface which is really helpful. All in all it is a really good buy at a reasonable price of Rs. 12999.00

  •  worst after sales service 14 September 2015

    2/5 stars

    By Aruni Sarkar

    My device wont recharge and the authorised service centre tells me that i need to replace my motherboard. But after one long month i am still awaiting a call from them. According to the service centre the motherboard took 16 days to get delivered. but whats appalling is that it is taking over a month to repair and replace the motherboard when it has already been delivered. I have learnt my lesson and would recommend anybody willing to buy a mobile to choose from the companies that have good after sales service like samsung, nokia, sony. Because electronics gadgets do not come with a guarrantee even if it may be of a company like motorola, and when such a hardware fault occurs, you will be harrassed like anything and will end up nowhere.

  •  Average Looking Mobile With Good Hardware 05 August 2015

    3/5 stars

    By Ajay Kumar

    Screen to body ratio is too much and size is too bulky to operate from single hand. 13 MP camera quality is also below average. Front 5 MP camera is doing good. Otherwise this mobile is awesome in performance.

  •  Budget smart phone , worth buying 24 September 2015

    4/5 stars

    By Amarsinh Adisare

    I am really happy with the performance given by Moto G 3 . As I already have all three Moto G generations . Moto G 3 is really satisfying performance . Moto G 3 is giving a very good performance except its camera is a bit a problem, slightly downgraded from Moto G 2 . Disappointing but ok . Processor, software, battery amd etc are perfectly fine . I am happy with this piece , simple and hardcore stock android experience
