Conclusion

Overall, Motorola Moto G is still steel for the asking price. The nicely crafted devices adds up to smooth user experience and decent performance. This time the Moto G is flanked by phones like Zenfone 5 and Xiaomi Mi3 and thus won’t be an undisputed champion in its league. We will update this post with more questions as we continue to use the New Moto G over the next few days.

  1. I am facing battery drainage issue in motog 2nd generation.Its not long lasting atleast 1 full day and takes a lot of time to full charge.I am just quite frustated with the same.
    Please suggest something on this.


      • Thanks for your reply.
        It takes around 2 and half an hour to full charge the device with data pack off.after full charge after around 8 hours it get discharged.since two days i am also facing issue that my battery was 46% charged in the night around at 10:45 and in the morning at 7:00 my mobile was completely switched off with data pack in off mode.Please let me know whether it is serious concern.


        • yes this is not normal. It might be an app which is draining your resources. The rdrop in standby condition can be corrected. to begin with you can either put your phone in safe mode (press power key, long press power off tab, it will prompt you to restart in safe mode) and/or download DS Battery saver app and set it’s profile to gentle. If things improve drastically, this means your phone is fine and there is a rogue app overworking your CPU and battery.

    • You will need to install the some third party application to share application via Bluetooth
      One application that you can install is – APK Extractor

      Step 1) Just Launch Google Play. Search for an app called “APK Extractor.” and install the application

      Step 2) Once the application is installed, Launch APK Extractor and Select the application you want to share

      Step 3) Select “Send APK” from the list of options, Choose “Bluetooth” from the list of available share options.

      Step 4) it will ask you to turn ON Bluetooth and then will wait for the receiving device to accept the Bluetooth transfer.
      Once the receiving device accepts, your job is done

      The other app you can use is is Bluetooth App Sender –>
