Not happy about Motorola reliability (sry I posted this in the Moto Z instead of Z3)

2020-07-31, 21:47 PM

I have had three Motorola cell phones: 


Moto G3, 2 months after the warranty, when I was speaking on the phone my voice was sounding choppy of simply was inaudible.


Moto G4: After 18 months the thing kept rebooting at random, factory reset to no avail. Eventually, it could not be recharged. Thinking I was getting these reliability because I was on the lower end of to Motorola I went for a Z3


Moto Z3: Was great for 1 year then the speaker blew. It still produces sound. I can hear someone speaking and what  they say but the sound is awfull. I figured I could fix this by replacing the speaker, knowing the job that it is... Before the part arrived, my screen started to make a vertical green line. This is indicating that the display is starting to fail. 


I did not think a cell phone would last me forever but this is not right, at all.

Similar boat to you. My z2 force was a year and one week old when I had my finger print scanner just stop working. Then the screen started to peel. Then the speaker just started sounded muffled. Motorola phones really aren’t meant to last more then a year. They are hoping you upgrade tour phone to a new moto phone before your realized that promised Android update is already 9 months behind release.
