Moto G Trinidad



Today @_srweb tweeted "Anyone using a Moto G in T&T? Thoughts?" This prompted me to do this blog post. I posted the question on all my social streams and got a few replies.

Jacqueline Morris on TTCS responded:

Yep. It's small. A lil too small for my everyday. Camera not great but OK. Fast! Tough. Loving Motorola's implementation of kitkat. Cheap.

Karan Sahadeo responded:

Nice, easily worth twice it's price, snappy and stock. It's not 4G, I bought it in the UK for £100. Its definitely a gateway phone to the moto x. In the age of data caps, I don't think 4G matters much.

John-Mark Christmas responded:

I think if we were more exposed to it as opposed to the S4 and IPhone 5s, things would have been different. Just imagine after almost a year, Bmobile finally brought the HTC One, a phone touted by many tech blogs as the best for 2013 until the Note 3 was released.

Sherwin questioned the fact that it doesn't support 4G. So would it work with our 4G? The phone supports the 1900 MHz band which both local carriers use for 4G. You wouldn't get 4G but 3G. Sherwin also had a question about the audio quality on phone calls. What are your thoughts on the Moto G? Please share with us in the comments below.

  1. The Moto G is awesome, and it's awesome on either bmobile or Digicel. It supports HSPA+ on the 1900 MHz band so 3G/4G is covered. It does not support Dual Carrier HSPA+, so it maxes out at 21 Mbps, which is a non-issue as DC (HSPA+ 42) isn't used in TT. I've since upgraded to the Moto X, but the five other people I know personally that went with the G are still extremely happy with the phone. Great battery life, excellent in-hand feel, and an awesome screen put this phone above the likes of the S4 Mini or iPhone 5C. That it is water resistant is only icing on the delicious chocolate covered wafer that is its unmolested KitKat interface.

  2. If you're in T&T, I was roaming on digicel while in Piarco Intl. on a layover last week. Data and voice worked wonderfully.

  3. From what I read and saw online, it has great specs for the price and has a durable build. It's also very responsive.

    The major cons were the fact that the battery is not removable, and it doesn't support any type of card memory. The camera was "ok", and could shoot only 720p video.

    There is also a review online showing that it was still working after being submerged in water for around 30 mins. That same reviewer said some of the displays *might* be a tad defective, showing more blue that it should, but that would need more checks.

  4. Ok great, good to hear. Worst thing is a phone with bad audio on calls...like the one I have now.

    1. I would say specs-wise the N5 is a better phone.

  7. Bmobile. Not LTE, HSPA+. Of course not. :) I bought it from Amazon on the 2nd tranche. I haven't and do not plan to test the waterproofing.

  9. Thanks guys was planning on buying this phone to replace my s3. Was little worried about the no sd card and no 4g as shown online. But i'm not really a person to have tons of apps so i'm hoping this works as a great replacement phone. I ordered the 16GB. Has the memory been any probs for you guys?

  13. Guys, where can I buy a MotoG in Trinidad? I only heard of RocBoyz but they only have the 8GB version. I was looking for the 16GB Version.
