Moto G5 The Worst product ever from moto

2017-04-11, 9:46 AM

 

Really disappointed to see my favorite brand getting badly ruined. Officials n guys of this group tell me a reason why should I choose this phone over its competitors.

"worst product ever" - i doubt that. And if you read all the android sites, they say the G5 is the best budget phone ever. 

 

Often Amazon reviews have nothing to do with the actual product. People give bad reviews based on features without using the product. "Worst phone ever because it is not sold in color red" or "Phone broke when dropped into toilet" - 

 

So unless the bad reviews are from actual buyers, and have reasons as to why the phone is bad, I ignore the ratings. Giving a phone a bad review because it is missing NFC or compass is also not a good sign - the specs are listed for the phone, so saying it is "the worst phone ever" is not relevant as it is not sold with a certain feature.

 

but you have already made up your mind with this post. You should not convince yourself to buy something you are already against.

If you are purchasing a phone, then more than likely you're at the age to be able to decide on your own or convince yourself to buy a product rather than asking people to convince you! There are tons of youtube videos about this phone. My advice would be to review some of them. Does wonders in helping to decide! :manwink:

Why u r trying to fool the buyers guys. If ur logic goes right moto g5 plus too should meet the similar ratings. Buyers and users are not fool now a days. Moto g5 plus on the other hand is going to be a hit. Case of moto g5 is getting more worse. Overall Rating dropped from 3.1 to 2.9 and I don't think it is just because of u guys are not selling it in red color or dropped in the toilet. Come on....its a serious matter for Leno/Moto's device designer and specification makers.

?

I encourage you to read some of those 1 star reviews from the amazon.in website.

Most of them are barely coherent.

 

In contrast, here is the amazon.co.uk page, where the reviews are significantly more favourable.

Okay, so you say you don't trust Amazon reviews. Fine. Let me tell you again if you didn't say my post here on the forum. I purchased the Moto G5 and I am facing an issue. No one from Motorola even cared replying to it. 

Now explain why did you not considered it also? I am not asking for some color option or NFC. I have a genuine problem but still no response. 

 

Here is my thread : https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Moto-G5-Moto-G5-Plus/Moto-G5-VoLTE-not-working/m-p/3638704

 

Hope you'll have a solution to this.

Most of the problems there (Amazon.in) were overheating. Which is kind of strange.

As for VoLTE, seems that Motorola has problems with Nougat + VoLTE:
