But...

    Petition: Motorola, please include Moto G (3rd Gen) for Android Nougat Update

    Motorola, please include Moto G (3rd Gen) for Android Nougat Update (Change.Org) I haven't signed it (yet?) because I'm not certain I actually want Lenovorola to do this. Unless Nougat on the G3 also adds VoLTE (and, preferably, WiFi calling) on T-Mobile: ISTM they'd likely induce more...

    FBI Prism virus. :/

    How can I remove the FBI Prism virus? I did a search, and they said to reboot your phone in safe mode. When I press the lock button, it vibrates, but nothing pops up. It just shows the FBI thing. I cant answer my phone, I cant bring down the setting menu by dragging from the top. I have a Moto...

    Moto G4 - why does Device orientation not work consistantly?

    Hi there, I have a Motorola G4, which I am very happy with. However I am somewhat bemused with Device Orientation facility. i.e the facility to rotate the streetview image by rotating/tilting the phone and using the inbuild gyro to move the image. This does not seem to work with Google...

    I have a 2015 8GB MotoG and I can't figure out how to free up internal memory. I can't add new apps because the device storage is full, 3.46 GB for the Android OS and 4.11 GB for apps and files, many of them photos. I deleted 1200 photos after having downloaded them to my PC but that didn't...

    Factory defaults

    My Moto G is barely functioning, the only way out everyone agrees is a complete reset. However it is in such a bad way that I can't make it do so. At http://www.hardreset.info/devices/motorola/motorola-xt1064-moto-g-2nd-gen/ two methods are given with the easy one at the bottom, so I assume it...

    Android behaving badly on Moto G

    I'm posting in this forum as I had to choose one, but I doubt it is a specific Moto G issue. I bought a dual sim 2nd gen about a year back, not realising it only had half the storage of the 1st gen, so even with no photos and a few 'essential' apps added it was soon bursting at the seams and it...

    Warning: before you buy a Moto G...

    In general, the Moto G is a great phone. It's sturdy, plenty fast, good camera, better battery life than my spouse's iPhone 6. Amazing value for the money. But... it has one significant omission, a part left out, presumably as a cost-cutting measure: motion sensors. This means you can't use...
