How did you get a 2 year warranty, I thought CPW warranty was just one year?

2.8 is 3GB - the calculation methods are different. So you are good to start using it.

Go to settings>about phone > hardware information >

unless the rules have changed in the uk in regards to mobile phones, ALL mobile phones come with 2 year manufacters warranty. This is due to the 18 month 24 month contract sold. how can you sell something with a contract of 18-24 months and it break after a year. This imformation is not widely known and I may be wrong. I will research now.

its true, 2 years warranty. It gives me confidence that i have bought an item that i can return if theres any issues. Buying off Amazon and ebay etc is great. Unfortunately when your electrical item breaks its very easy for me to find a cpw. They are everywhere. Im going home soon to study the .apks and compile a list of my own so im aware of any third party software installing itself without my knowledge. Again peace of mind from buying new. My paranioa runs deep. I was looking at the umi plus E thats got 6gb ram with a 2.3ghz processor. If CPW sold that i would have bought that. HDMI output is the only thing i might miss from having the g5 plus but i dont even have a TV.

Found out the new Motorola G5 plus was available at Carphone Warehouse. I immediatly drove to the nearest store which had stock.(this an hour away). I asked the usual questions and made my purchase.....

prior to me switching on the phone i decided to do some research on EXACTLY what kind of phone i have.

 

1....  No headphones. Carphone Warehouse states headphones... theres none.

2....  The pamflet inside states  your phone supports 2 sim cards! ( it doesnt)

3... I spent 3 hours trying to find exactly how much Ram my phone has... i want to buy the 3gb.

      so i entered the model number (xt1864) into the motorola website and it states with this model has 3gb.......

      but hold on...... Carphone Warehouse states 2gb????? 

     

I now know EXACTLY what kind of phone i have now. 

I will be returning this phone to the carphone warehouse who told me they dont expect many sales and didnt even have it on show in one of its main stores.

 

exclusive to carphone warehouse....... what a joke. Im going to get my money back

Yeah there will always be other models like some of the Chinese but some of these have poor availability.
Hope you enjoy your phone, I think it amongst the best midrange phones at the moment. Just need to hunt down a case for it now!
