Great phone for the price
Reviewed in the United States on December 14, 2019
My $8million LG6 that was pretty worthless over its lifetime broke when the phone was out of contract and I pulled the sim card out to replace it with a new one. The cheap plastic tray broke inside and without mortgaging the house, there was no way it could be fixed.
So, rather than go all in and drop another grand on a stupid phone, I bought this one. I have to say, for the price, it's a darn good phone. It took a while to set up, all the software updates and whatnot, but it took to my sim card from AT&T like a fish to water. It's got a nice clean look, Motorola has some nifty features built in, and for a guy like me who really doesn't do much but listen to music, check email, and surf the net, this works like a charm.
I powered up the phone on a Thursday afternoon. It's now Saturday afternoon and I have 42% battery left. Granted, I haven't used it a ton, but still, no complaints there given my LG6 would power down in about 14 nanoseconds after hitting 100%.
Keep in mind, there isn't a ton of memory here, but I put in an SD card and store all my photos, music and movie downloads there. That too is easy to do and keeps your internal drive in good working order.
As for the camera, full disclosure, I'm no Ansel Adams or Annie Liebovitz, but I find it more than adequate. I will have to give the nod to the LG6 in terms of better quality, but if you start to break down the price per photo, LG has it around $87.42 a pic, and the Motorola is about $.0000001. So that's a pretty good savings.
Seriously, I'm never buying another phone for more than $100 again. Feel like I basically put my whole retirement in jeopardy buying these high dollar brands and locking myself into payment schedules on par with a new car.
