Moto G 2nd Gen Global and French freq.

I plan on using a soon-to-be purchased Moto G 2nd gen Global , and am confused about which frequencies and network speed are compatible (I did look but my sources seem mixed up).



My main focus would be reliable 3G use there, and may opt to wait for a 4G unit...

Moussy-



There is a Global Version sold in US and there is a Rest of World version sold outside the US. Where are you considering purchasing and which service provider are you thinking of using the phone on. You mention France.  Here is the French Specs page which lists the Band Frequencies. There are no plans at this time for a 4G version of this device.

Re: Moto G 2nd Gen Global and French freq.

Thanks Mark.



I CAN buy either "Global" here in the U.S.or the "Rest of the World" in the E.U. (if on the market yet?)



Your link is for the French market issue phone. Is it a straight "Rest of the World" unit?



 



I wish Moto would refer to phones by specific model numbers like "XTxyz", so everybody would know which animal it is...



 



Other: Ignore the 4G idea, I was just teasing...!

Global Version sold in the US is a Single SIM version. 



If you are in France you can purchase here now.

Re: Moto G 2nd Gen Global and French freq.

OK, Mark, we need address the frequency business end of things:



What I gathered:



"Global GSM", as found on the U.S. site:

GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps (850, 1700 (AWS), 1900 MHz)



From "French site's Moto G" that you linked (twice)::

GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)



 



How do they differ in plain English, frequency-wise...?

Yes they differ in frequency. Don't look at the US Page for frequencies as the US Retail and Global version specs are combined.  You can see them separated here. US Specs page should be divided up similar to the format I provided shortly.



I linked twice. Once to the page to purchase and once to the page with specs. If you are in France I recommend the France version so you have a warranty. If you are from France but purchase US Version Global or US Retail you will not have a warranty in France.
