Motorola were owned by Google for a while anyway, so I'd imagine it's a similar experience (although Lenovo haven't been the most consumer friendly with their other devices in the last few years...). I've only heard good things about Moto recently though, and the G in particular seems to be a bargain.

I have an LG G3 and while the screen looks amazing, it drains the battery worse than any phone I have ever had and I've smashed 3 of them in a year.

Stay clear.

I've got a Moto G. I'd highly recommend it. Battery life is much better than the IPhone I previously had. Dropped it a couple of times and the screen hasn't cracked. I haven't had any issues with it and it was cheaper than anything else when I got it.

This, it's basically the same as phones £70 more, build quality is good. I'm really impressed

Just bought one based almost entirely on what you two have said, it had better be good.

Ditto and they are quite flexible with regards to changing plans

Phone upgrade is due soon , currently have a piece of s*** iPhone 5C. Don't really want to get another iPhone as I am sick of the s*** battery life , s*** memory on the phone and just generally sick of them. Thinking of getting a Samsung Galaxy S6? Anyone on here got one and are they any good?

I had a Galaxy s5 and didn't like it. Far too big, and just didn't feel right.

I've just got an iPhone 6s on my upgrade and its very good. Battery life is by far the best I've ever experienced with Apple.

I hate Samsung phones. If I had to get anything at the minute it would probably be a Motorola or Nexus.

HTC rumoured to be making the new Nexus phone; I might actually upgrade from my M7 <divax>.

I say this and then I see Moto are having a nice sale, and I can get 15% further off... Moto X 32GB (2014) for £169 after discount, Moto X Play 16GB for £212.

My Nexus 4 is losing battery performance fast, and I'm constantly hovering around the low storage warning. The X doesn't exactly have stellar battery and no SD card slot though. <neg>

I ordered a 7500mah battery for my G3. I don't know if there's something wrong with my phone or if the batteries are just s*** but I cant go maybe 10 hours at the minute without charging it. I use it a lot though.

If you use it a lot the battery dies quicker <ok>. I can draw you a graph if you'd like.
