The entire phone is IPX7 certified.

Re: Water Resistance - film under speaker grille

If you're asking if a film should cover those openings, the answer is no. But if you see damage to the inner material, which is recessed, that could be problem. 



The water-resistant coating is invisible to the naked eye.



After a follow up with the development team, I learned that Moto G achieves IPX7 water resistance through use of seals, gaskets, and adhesives. Sorry for the bad info.

Please do not PM me - if you have issues, search the forums for threads on your topic and post there, or start a new thread. Thanks!

Well, this pic from Moto's G 3rd gen site shows the earpiece fairly well.....



I'd go back to where you bought this device and compare to other units.

You should return it. It isn't supposed to look like this.
