Digit Verdict for Motorola Moto G (3rd gen)

While the Moto G (3rd Gen) smartphone is a decent phone at this price point, it is nothing compared to competitors like the Asus Zenfone 2 and Xiaomi Mi 4i, or even the lower priced Yu Yureka Plus and Lenovo K3 Note for that matter. Motorola may not want to enter the specs war, but it just isn't delivering the 'customer experience' that it promises.

User Reviews of Motorola Moto G (3rd gen)

  • Terrific purchase
    Vinay Babu on | 01-10-2018

    still using 21 oct 2018 bought on jan 22 2016

  • Classy product
    Gunal Msd on | 01-10-2018

    I've been using this product for past 4 years(OCT 2015) and it was just amazing experience by moto g3... By then Moto was released by GOOGLE whereas now it was released by LENOVA. Ordered POCO F1 now and gonna handover Moto G3 to my Mom

  • Moto G3- My honest review
    Mohak Gogia on | 01-09-2015

    I have been using this phone for more than a MONTH now and i would like to say that i am quite satisfied with the product as of now.Let me break it down in terms of pros and cons for you guys- Pros- 1. Design:- The phone is classy and looks quite stylish in looking and gives a very good in hand feel when you're using it. 2. Camera:- The camera on this moto g3 is great.I mean one can capture really good photos with it, be it front or back.This is the case when you are in good or medium lightning conditions,so if you're clicking pictures in dark or low lighting the picture quality is only mediocre(Rear&Front) and looks a little bit artificial(Front Cam).But i suppose that's the case with every other smartphone in this price range. 3.Battery:-Battery is a major concern now -a-days and also the previous model of this phone i.e the moto g2 had battery issues.But this phone can give you a really good battery backup.It can easily last you a day even with heavy usage if you give it a full charge in the morning.It takes 2:45 minutes to charge from 0 to 100 with first 85% charged in just 2 hours.I am getting approx 5 hours of screen on time(2 sims,1 sim being 3g and the other 2g with mobile data on) and approx 7.5 hours of screen on time if the mobile data is off.So i think it's great.Isn't it? 4.Performance:- Performance is absolutely smooth.No hanging issues.Working without flaws(Asphalt 8, fifa15,dead trigger 2,Leo's fortune and many more games resides on my storage ^_^ ).Handling all without any problems 5.RAM:- As you know you're getting 2 Gigabytes of RAM on this device and i must say ram is way more than enough for a user.I have around 82 apps installed on this phone including the built-in-apps and still there is 700-800 mb free space in RAM all the time.So it's fckin' cool guys! :) 6.Storage:- You're getting around 11 Gb free for user out of 16 gb internal storage.Besides that,one can expand it through sd card for upto 32 Gb! Cons- 1. Display- The first & d formost con that i noticed in this device was the display.It really annoyed me at first coz sometimes white looks a lil bit yellowish and color production isn't accurate as it should be.So if you're not so concerned about colors,just ignore it.You myt also not notice it in the day to day usage.So not a big issue,atleast for me! 2. Heating issues:- Wasn't really an issue if you have asked me about the phone a week ago.Don't get me wrong,in normal usage you won't feel any heating problem on this device but when i play asphalt 8 for a long time,the screen panel do heats a little.Also,sometimes i have noticed that it gets warm while charging.So in case if it creates a problem for any of you,i mentioned it here. #Would update my review as soon as i feel any change in its performance and usage. #Give my review a thumbs up if it 's helped you in any manner.

  • Heating Issue
    Rajeev Singh on | 01-09-2015

    I bought 2 mobile for amazing design and brand however its unfortunate that the product is having access heat and without uses the temp is going up to 45 Celsius and unable to make call requested flipkart to raise request to manufacturer to resolve the issue on priority Pros: 1: Best design 3: Super speed 4: Good battery backup 5: high configuration Cons: 1: Heating a lot 2: Camera quality with flash is bad as it capture yellow image 3: Poor Headphone quality

  • Moto G3 vs Samsung J5
    Prithviraj Sarkar on | 01-09-2015

    Impressive specs and build quality, but when it goes against the J5 it's a tough choice so i went through a lot of research and used both the phones, here's my fast comparision Build Quality- Moto G3(samsung has a plastic feel) Display- Samsung for its super AMOLED display which has more saturation and vibrant colours Camera- Moto G3 because of better optical utilization and better low light pictures but j5 has a better front camera UI- Moto G3 hands down( pure android experience,no lag, no bloatware and a guaranteed update everytime) Battery- Samsung(3000mah) Speakers- Moto G3 (even with a single speaker it's louder than most phones) Water resistant- Moto G3(plus point) Now talking about specs, while both are almost identical, Moto G3 handles games better with no lag and heating because of its UI(heats up a little when on charge), while touchwiz uses up a lot of RAM which leaves about 500-800 Ram for other can only hold 4 apps while Moto G3 can hold 18 apps with ease! Now Now there are small things like slight price difference,dual flash,front facing flash,4G LTE but thats up to you.. In conclusion i'll give Moto G3 8.5 and Samsung J5 an 8. I bought G3 for its smooth UI,water resistance, gaming capability and a premium looking phone If you want better resolutions,selfies and more battery life, go for the J5. these phones are simply the best in range right now. thanks for reading :)

  • AWESOMEST phone you can get in this price range!!
    ansupriya nair on | 01-08-2015

    Hi all !! Greetings for the day... I had to get a phone within budget of 10k- 15k. First was confused between many options like Lenovo k3 note, Samsung J7, MI, etc. Then this phone was launched, was so impressed by its features and specifications that I ordered for it, taking a chance. Got my MOTO G 3rd GEN phone on time and it was a good delivery by FLIPKART as usual ... After extensively using the phone Iam giving my reviews in order to help other guys thnking of purchasing this phone. Display : 4.5/5 (Cool display and is equally good to veiw it from extreme angles) Camera : 4.5/5 (Super awsm camera for this price range, and quick capture feature is also awsm. Selfies in low light also came out pretty well and good.) Call quality : 5/5 (Clear, crisp and good call quality) Build Quality : 5/5 (Amazing build quality, fits in ur hand and light weight as compared to other mobiles in this range) UI: 5/5 (feathery smooth) Battery Life: 4.5/5 (After fully charging the battery, used the phone to extreme extent but still it had some power left till the end of the day. Thus it would last for a day fairly, if fully charged) Water proof: (Yes it is water proof, tested by placing it in water for some time, stil aftr taking it out, working fantasticly) Screen : Thanks to gorilla glass, kept my phone in pocket with othr stuf, evn dropped it into bag full of stuff like keys, charger, compass, etc, but just wipe the screen and it seems as new evrytym. U wont need a flip cover for this. Cons: Some of the settings are missing, but yet a smooth user interface makes up for all that :) Go ahead folks, don't miss this cute such a good price.. MUST BUY !!

  • Moto G3 - Every penny is worth it
    Rohit Chandra on | 01-08-2015

    Flipkart is doing amazing job by providing its customers the best handsets in the market. In the league of smartphones, where every other day a new company comes up with new features and attractive prices, I must tell you Moto series from Motorola has made its own league, which is way different from the other handset manufacturers. Moto G is not only a brand, but has also successfully created a trust factor which somewhere was missing in the rush of overflowing smartphones in the market. I was initially using Moto G 1st generation, which ofcourse was a big hit from Motorola launched last year. I was completely satisfied with Moto G 1st Gen last year, which I used without a single problem till date. Now I felt the need to upgrade myself to a higher RAM and better camera. Truly speaking, Moto G 2nd Gen never impressed me, and that's the reason I decided to wait a little more. Guys, trust me on this, my wait was worth it. Moto G 3rd Gen is a superb power pack smartphone with an all round performance in each segment. Moreover, the price in which it comes is an added advantage which is just Rs. 12,999/- Two things which I didn't like are firstly they have removed the Pulse LED notification light and secondly the wire of the USB cable is too short. I miss the notification pulse light, as it was in my previous Moto G 1st Gen. Specifications and technical details I wont discuss here in my review, as its already mentioned everywhere. I liked the screen, the touch, the glaze and the finish of the handset, smoothly designed edges, the compactness and the standard feeling when you hold the device in your hand. The back cover makes the phone grip handy, comfortable and easy to use. Camera is just too good, front as well as the main. Battery seems to be working well in 3G connection. The user interface is so awesome, android Lollypop is fast and efficient. Altogether, the handset works like a wonder. My personal suggestion to all the new buyers, if you have a budget somewhere around 10k-18k, then don't hesitate to buy Moto G 3rd Gen. I am dead sure, you all will thank me later for this advice. Last but not the least, thumbs up for the Flipkart delivery, as I ordered my Moto G3 on its launch day and I received it within 2 days.

  • Motorolla really learned how to make a good phone
    venkatarao Gonuguntla on | 01-07-2015

    I bought moto g 1st gen on first day of its release (Feb6th 2013) and moto g3 also i bought on first day itself. These days you will get octa core processors, 2gb RAm, and 13 mp cameras in phones below 10k range also. Those phones on paper are better than moto g3. But none of those phones even come close to performance and reliability of moto g. My moto g1 is still working as fast as day 1. Motorola delivers on fronts which really matters. No bells and whistles, pure performance. If you want a iPhone like phone in android at low cost moto is the go to phone. Dont even think twice to buy this!! Amazing phone at affordable price!!

  • Good Product from Motorola
