+ Battery Life - Simply AMAZING - the absolute best battery life of any smartphone or tablet that I have owned! Since this phone does NOT come with lots of bloatware and useless apps, this helps the memory to run better and the battery last longer! In fact, I have gotten a day and a half of battery use (I turn off WiFi when I am off the internet or email etc). However, I run my brightness at 100%. So on an average day, I get at least a full day with about 20 percent left (sometimes more) and then I charge it overnight. *The very long battery life is what sold me on this phone. Too many times in the past with phones that have too many bells and whistles, the battery ran out so quickly. However, this phone lasts me all day until I go to bed when it goes back on it's charger!
+ Built in slip proof anti slip (bumper) cover - In a sense, the slip proof cover is built into the phone and it so attractive and anti slip on the front and on the back, that I did not need to purchase an additional cover to start using the phone. However, I have my eye on a book style cover for this phone already!
The back of this phone removes you you can change the color of the back part to a different color etc.
+ Screen Resolution - AMAZING! The colors are vivid and the fonts, icons are very clear. Even though this is a smaller phone at 4.3 inch screen, when I view pages on the internet, the text is clear and pictures very clear and colorful!
And the screen is so clear that I can read PDF books using Adobe Reader and see the pages without my glasses!
+ KitKat / Pure Android Experience - Since this has the pure Android with no overlays over it, and just the essential apps installed, this is a leaner phone that uses much less memory and battery than the ones that have those overlays and are not straight Android! This means that KitKat OS runs better and faster also I have found. I know as I own two Samsung tablets with KitKat that I love, but they have bloatware on them, this phone does not). It received the Kit Kat update to 4.4.3 soon after I purchased this phone so it is very up to date and running very smoothly.
+ WiFi Connecting/Speed of WiFi - The strongest WiFi yet of any phone that I have owned, and I really am serious! This phone has Very, very fast connect and it keeps the connect. In fact in the back of my home (the furthest from my router), I still get 4.5 bars of WiFi signal on this phone! This I tested using my home router and on the go at many hotspots with WiFi. Other hotspots: No problems at all connecting and staying connected on these. And I found the speed still high at home with several devices connected at the same time to the router, and there is no loss in speed.
+ External SD Card Information - Since this phone has an external SD slot, I installed my 32GB SanDisk Micro Class 4 Micro SD card and it installed and has worked just fine on this Moto phone. Note that some people who own 32GB or higher SD cards with Class 10 have had their phones sometimes give them error message: SD Card unexpectedly removed. This is NOT the fault of the phone. As I have researched this extensively, my findings have stated that it because a smartphone or tablet reads a class 4 or Class 6 card better. However, just some people have this problem with a class 10 card, but for me, I stick with the class 4 SD card and have never encountered this problem on this phone or on any phone or tablet that I have used.
+ Internet & Webpage & Video Viewing - The Chrome browser does a great job, however, I use Maxthon Browser with great internet viewing results and it renders webpages quite fast for me.
+ Office Program with the phone - Found it to be OK, but I went to the Playstore and installed Docs to Go (which lets me edit, save, view in MS Office types and also view PDF files). There is also a MS Office App (free) in the Playstore.
+ Music Player - This phone comes with Google Player installed and I like it OK. It does play music that is stored on my external SD card nicely and saves new Playlists OK (and Google Player also plays music from the Cloud). However, let me suggest Rocket Music Player (free) from the Playstore. I like it because my music is on my external SD card and it plays it in playlists or from my folders etc. I have already created my playlists on it and the sound from this player is superb!
+ Home Videos - The stock video player is OK and plays MOST home videos, however, may I suggest QQ Player (Free App from...Read more
What I like about this phone:
1 - It is much easier to learn than I thought it would be.
2 - Phone is very responsive.
3 - I like the Google Player Music Player--I use a newly purchased Bluetooth speaker and the songs really sound great!
And I installed Amazon MP3 App from the Playstore which plays my music from the cloud when I am on WiFi or from my SD Card when I am off WiFi.
4 - So far the battery life is very good even when I am on WiFi or Bluetooth.
5 - Low cost phone that meets all my needs for a smartphone.
6 - WiFi is easy to connect, is very strong and has a long range and stays connected without any problems. The WiFi still worked well in every room that I tried and even a very long distance from the router, it still had a very strong signal. And I walked outside with the phone quite a ways and the WiFi picked up OK.
7 - Camera works OK and I took a few pictures and emailed them. The camera I found does an OK job for emailing or posting online. It is not as high quality as my digital camera. Still it is a much better phone camera than the one on the old Moto V3 Razr.
8 - Bluetooth - I was able to connect my Bluetooth headset and Bluetooth speaker quickly and easily to this phone.
So I recommend this phone to anyone wanting a low cost phone that has many features.
While the phone has 4GB of storage, only 2.2GB are user-accessible for loading applications and data (the remaining 1.8GB is occupied by the operating system and it's reserved storage.) The beauty of this phone is that it offers an microSD card slot, so by purchasing and installing a 32GB card (under $20) you can expand the storage to more than what more expensive phones offer.
The sdcard can be used to store photos, music, and many larger applications can be moved to the sdcard to free up the internal storage.
No NFC support.
No front facing camera.
No flash on rear camera.
Rear camera lens is fixed-focus.
Excellent performance, even with Battery Saver enabled.
Screen is bright and crisp; auto-brightness functions well.
Large, bright white notification LED.
Exceptional all day (almost 2 days) battery life. Edit: First full charge cycle 100% to 15% lasted 1 day 16 hours, including 5 hours of screen on time.
SD card slot for expanding storage capacity.
Decent speaker volume and sound quality.
Bootloader is easily unlocked :)
