Moto XT1045 overview

  • 1Description

The black Moto G XT1045 Smartphone from Motorola offers dynamic handheld performance, 4G LTE connectivity, and quality audio-video capture and playback functionality. This smartphone is supported by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of built-in RAM. It comes equipped with 8GB of storage and includes a microSDHC slot that supports cards with up to 32GB of memory for additional storage capacity. The integrated micro-USB interface allows you to connect the device for mass-storage purposes and also serves as a charging port.

The Moto G XT1045 houses a 4.5" IPS LCD capacitive display, which outputs a 1280 x 720 resolution that fully supports all your HD content. For your photo and video needs, the Moto G features a 5MP rear camera, with auto-focus, HDR, and other enhancements built in. A front-facing 1.3MP camera is also on-board.

The Moto G is also well-equipped for wireless communication. It features Bluetooth 4.0 LE technology for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi for high-speed Internet connectivity. GPS with GLONASS is also on-board for using compatible location services and applications. The Moto G's 2070mAh battery is designed to provide up to 24 hours of mixed usage on a full charge.

GSM / 4G LTE Wireless Connectivity
This phone is designed to work on select GSM networks and is 4G LTE capable. LTE is an advanced cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds so fast that they compete with wired broadband internet providers. With an LTE connection, this phone should have no problem streaming HD video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high-speed data connection. The phone is also backwards compatible with 3G and 2G data for instances when you can't get LTE. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Note: Not compatible with all cellular networks. Please make sure your provider uses a frequency or band that this phone supports. You can check which bands this phone works with in the Specifications.
5-Megapixel Rear Camera
The rear camera takes up to 5-megapixel photos and allows you to record video in 720p at 30 fps. Apps built into the Android operating system as well as many available separately, enable editing and sharing of what you've shot.
Android KitKat 4.4
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 4.4 KitKat optimizes the operating system, allowing it to run on a wider range of hardware. Other improvements include a revamped, search-based dialer and an "immersive mode," which allows an app to hide the status and navigation bars to use the full height of a device's screen.
Built-In FM Radio
Listen to music without tapping into your data allowance thanks the built-in FM radio-requires separately available wired headphone.
Interchangeable Shells
Interchangeable shells mean you can personalize your phone with custom colors (available separately). Alternative color bands include Chalk, Violet, Spearmint, Raspberry, Turquoise, Lemon Lime, and Cherry.

Moto XT1045 reviews

Moto G XT1045 First Gen 8GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great affordable phone Haven't had any problems with it. I only charge it once a day, and the battery life is usually great. In times of 5-6 phones, I like this smaller, 4.5 size that I can still fit into a pocket (snug fit). It doesn't have too many preloaded apps, though I highly recommend making the most of the SD card slot. Wouldn't mind using this phone for the next 5 years!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good, but doesn't work so well. The first one only lasted a couple of months, it was replaced by Motorola after some effort. I always had a connection issue when going from no signal to signal, in many cases the phone would not pick up the data signal until a reboot. Since then the battery life including standby is no mare than 24 hours, if I don't use the phone at all. Just last week the replacement got stuck on airplane mode although the phone indicators for airplane mode are OFF. So, can't call or text no matter what I tried. I did several factory resets and nada. So the phone JUST made it out of warranty, nice. This stuck on airplane mode seems to be an issue with Moto G, at least the first generation. Luckily I charge EVERYTHING on my AmEx card and they will extended the warranty, so I filed a claim with them. They've always come through before so I'm hoping I get reimbursed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT price for an Android Lollipop LTE Easily upgraded to Android Lollipop and operates fast and smoothly with it. Low on storage but expandable memory card slot makes up for that. Nice and light on bloatware makes the battery last longer and operate faster. You can't beat it for the price. Only real con is the permanent battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from moto g xt1045 For the age of this device it is a solid phone. No it don't have the best of everything, is it really needed though. I think most folks would be happy with this phone. Oh and it actually fits in your pocket unlike all the other so called phones that can pass as a small tablet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOA Dead on Arrival, had to send back, we will see what happens with the replacement.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but not enough internal memory The phone is pretty nice, good sound, nice camera really easy to use and with panoramic option. However the 8GB internal memory is a drag: between the google applications and the motorola app than can't be move to the SD card the memory is quickly full and because of that the phone is really slow and some app have trouble running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again I love this phone! For the price the features and speed can't be beat. I use it for music (Amazon and Spotify), email, directions (Google Maps and Wave), social media, and rewards apps and it performs flawlessly. The camera isn't spectacular at 5MP but like I said, for the price the phone is awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice, robust phone I am very happy with this purchase. I bought one for each my parents and they couldn't be happier... at first we had to install like 3 major updates and it took a while, but I know they were necessary. Also, B&H gave me the covers and a cool water proof bag for free... how great is that?!
