Moto XT1625 Overview

  • 1Description

Experience the next generation of dynamic handheld performance with the black 4th Gen. Moto G XT1625 from Motorola. This smartphone is powered by a 1.5 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor and 2GB of dedicated RAM. It comes equipped with 16GB of storage and includes a microSD slot that supports microSDXC cards with up to 128GB 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 houses a 5.5" LCD touchscreen display, which features a 1920 x 1080 resolution that fully supports all your HD content. For your photo and video needs, the Moto G features two powerful cameras: a rear-facing 13MP camera with auto-focus, color balancing dual-LED flash, auto HDR, 1080p video capture, and several other enhancements built-in; and a front-facing 5MP wide-angle camera.

The Moto G is also well-equipped for wireless communication. It features Bluetooth 4.1 + LE (Smart Ready) technology for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, and 802.11a/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 3000mAh battery is designed to provide "All Day" mixed usage on a full charge, and thanks to TurboPower technology, it can provide up to 6 hours of power from only 15 minutes of charging.

Note: The XT1625 is the North American Variant of the Moto G. It will run on any GSM network that uses cell frequencies supported by the device, including AT&T and T-Mobile. It will also work with certain CDMA carriers, such as Verizon and Sprint. Current Verizon SIM cards can be transferred to the new device, though the carrier may limit the purchase of new SIM cards for unlocked phones. Since this device is unlocked, functionality for certain carrier-specific features cannot be guaranteed. Please confirm with your carrier that it supports the Moto G before purchasing.

GSM + CDMA / 4G LTE Wireless Connectivity
This phone is designed to work on select GSM and CDMA 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.
North American Variant / US Compatible LTE
The XT1625 is a US variant of the Moto G. The XT1625's LTE radio is tuned to frequencies that are most often used in the United States and North America. It can also be used in other parts of the world; however, LTE access may be limited or unsupported, depending on the network. To ensure this phone will work with your carrier please check to make sure the frequencies your carrier uses are supported by this phone. The full list of compatible carrier frequencies can be found here, the frequencies this phone supports can be found in the product specs.
All-Day Battery and TurboPower Technology
The Moto G is designed to last a full day and then some. With a 3000mAh battery, you can go about your day and not worry about battery life. Go to school or work, visit with friends, and then head out for the evening - you'll still have enough juice to get home. Plus, the Moto G is equipped with TurboPower technology, which is designed to give you 6 hours of usage after just 15 minutes of charging.
Water Repellant
Advanced nano-coating technology creates a water repellent barrier to help protect against moderate exposure to water, such as accidental spills, splashes, or light rain.
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
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 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to. It also marks the debut of Now on Tap, a context-sensitive update to Google Now that checks your current screen for keywords and then searches for them automatically. Other performance and security enhancements are included as well.

Moto XT1625 Reviews

Moto G XT1625 4th Gen. 16GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 144.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value ever. Out of the 30+ phones we have had in our family over the years, this is definitely the best value and still a very solid performer (we have had everything from basic phones to "flagship" phones, apple and android). I don't use NFC and prefer to own a separate camera for any real travel photos. I also prefer separate music devices for working out or connecting to car. Battery seems fine during recent travel, used navigation for a little bit, watched a couple movies, made a few phone calls and texts, still around 50 % at the end of the day. I could care less about the appearance of the phone's case since I always put them in a case appropriate to the activity I an doing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent value phone, with some WiFi isues Overall a good phone with all the necessary functionality at a reasonable price. However, the WiFi on the phone leaves something to be desired. Trying to use it for downloads at home with my router that runs 802.11b & g, the download and upload speeds are exactly 1/6 of the speeds of my 1st gen. MotoG. But connected to my cable company's outdoor hotspots or someone else's newer router (802.11n?) it runs a good bit faster, and also faster than my 1st gen phone. Motorola tech support was no help, just passing me off from one agent to another for over a week and a half, even with the above information provided to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice phone. I had a Straight Talk/Tracfone Galaxy S4 mini before this which I liked quite a bit. Since my eyes are getting crusty with the years and my battery life w the S4 was fading, I went for something bigger and newer in the budget smartphone zone. The Moto G 4th gen is great. Fast app transitions, nice camera, nice display, easy set up w AT&T. Not a gamer. I mostly do email text pics and those ancient things we used to refer to as phone calls where you actually talk to another human. It's great for all of that. Love the battery life and light weight for it's size too, btw.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great when works. Motorola warranty is worthless I loved the phone. Then at some point it started exhibiting a behavior that Motorola Support calls Ghost touch. Basically it is a random triggering of different screen areas without my touching the phone. The forums at Motorola are full of complaints and the company admits there is a problem and will replace a phone sent for repairs. However, people report that the new phones have the same problem. I do not know what to do since they do not offer another model as replacement and refuse a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible phone I bought this phone, and over the year that it was covered by the warranty, it broke and had to be replaced three times. When my fourth phone broke, it was no longer covered by the warranty and I was forced to buy a new one. Either I was continually sent lemons or the phone does not work; either option is unacceptable. Before the phone broke for good, it would frequently crash or slow down or shut off, and I was never happy. After a few months, the battery life is shot and it will only hold charge until around 3 in the afternoon without use and 12 with use. Save your money and buy a different phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excellent phone, superb camera however heat up after 4-5 min I like this phone , it's a value for money however noticed one major flaw that it heats up (super hot, can't touch to my ear) after 4-5 min of talk so returning it. Thanks to BHP excellent customer service, 5 start for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Phone After looking for several months, I chose the Moto G as a replacement for my old 2G technology flip phone. The phone has a little bit of a learning curve (as do most technology devices). After two weeks with the phone I am still learning all the features. The audio for the normal phone and the speaker phone is quite good. The different shape of the earpiece as compared to the flip phone takes does take a little getting use but is quite similar to newer feature phones and other smart phones. The screen is sharp and easily read indoors and outdoors in shade. Battery life has been much better than expected. Installing apps has been easy as has been connecting to various WiFi hotspots. Setting up the phone to connect to my gmail account was trivial. I'm undecided if I prefer the threaded text messages to the chronological text messages of the old phone. Each scheme has benefits. The only downside I have seen is the lack of printed information. Some operations are not as intuitive as the designers may have thought. This is not a problem with this phone but with many technology products. Electronic documentation is fine provided the technology has not failed and is preventing you from getting to the electronic documentation.
