Motorola E4 Plus Cellphone - On 27th July 2018, around 3.30 PM I handed over the defective set to the Motorola Service Centre - Hara Agency, Bhubaneswar. Concerned person of the Service Centre has mentioned in the service order that the set is out of warranty. I then handed over a copy of the purchase invoice of Amazon bearing invoice no. **, invoice details ** dated 31.01.2018. The product was sold by Eastern Logica Infoway Ltd., Plot no. 33, Block A Cooperative Industrial Estate, New Delhi - 110044. She assured me that, "We will email to the Motorola Company and after receipt of confirmation we will solve the problem." On 30th July 2018, when I approached the service center, they returned back my defective set and told that Motorola has replied that this is a second sale and no warranty is available on this set. I was told to contact Amazon in this issue. Request to assist me in this regard for getting repaired the handset.
I bought a Motorola E cell phone that cost $200. You could hardly hear on it. When going by Maps directions, I had to hold it up to my ear to hear it. The most shocking thing was when I took it to sell at a kiosk, after getting a Samsung that cost the same, it told me that my Motorola phone was a coolpad phone. That's the kind the government gives away for free. The kiosk only wanted to give me $5. The Samsung offer for the same original price as the Moto E was $40. Such a rip off. I would never buy one again.
I purchased a MOTO e4 from Sprint 06/15, within a week, the phone screen went completely blank. I called into Motorola and they said that the phone was in warranty, and I had 2 options. 1 - either send the defective phone in to them and once they receive it, they'll send the replacement; or 2 - pay more than $100 to have a replacement phone sent out to me, and they will refund $80, holding the other $25 as deposit. I agreed to the latter.
TWO, count them, TWO weeks later, I receive my replacement phone and the serial number is registered to someone else's account, so this device is LOCKED! Can't activate my SIM card on it, and Motorola now wants me to repeat steps one and two... either send it and wait up to FOUR weeks for a device (2 weeks for them to receive and process the replacement, and 2 weeks for me to receive the replacement) or pay an ADDITIONAL $105 for a THIRD replacement... All because of their poor quality phones. Absolutely disgusting.
I just got off the phone with Motorola. I had purchased a new Moto Z (Verizon) about 2 years ago. I started having problems with the phone almost immediately. I kept taking it back to the Verizon Corporate Store during that first year where they tried to resolve multiple issues. After that year they suggested I contact Motorola because nothing they did was able to fix the issues. I did so. Motorola spent weeks trying to resolve the problems and after failing at everything including a full factory reset, they send me a replacement phone.
Shortly after receiving the first replacement phone, the SECOND phone experienced different issues. We underwent the same process (weeks of testing and working with Motorola). They then sent a second REPLACEMENT phone (actually the 3rd phone). This 2nd replacement phone had different major problems almost immediately. We again went through their process and they informed me they would send a THIRD REPLACEMENT phone (4th phone overall). They said they would have that phone THOROUGHLY inspected so that I wouldn't have any more issues. I questioned why they wouldn't have THOROUGHLY inspected the FIRST replacement phone.
In any case, the third replacement phone had a habit of calling people randomly that were in my phone list, and after again going through all their steps (including the usual complete factory reset as with the others). They today said they would send me a FOURTH replacement phone (5th phone overall) and would ensure it received an EXTRA SPECIAL INSPECTION and TESTING before they send it out.
I have spent hundreds of hours either driving to the Verizon Corporate Store or just on the phone with Motorola and Verizon, and hours more reloading apps after factory resets. Motorola will not compensate me in any manner for my time and aggravation. They will do the barest minimum that they have to do to meet their legal responsibilities under the warranty. I will never purchase another Motorola phone and I sincerely suggest if people DO need to get a replacement phone under their warranty, that they immediately sell that phone on eBay as I will now do, and put that money towards a company that stands behind their equipment and provides REAL service to their customers. Again, I'm waiting to get the FIFTH Moto Z from Motorola and still have no expectation that THIS one will work. eBay or Craigslist - here I come!
When buying the Moto x4 it claims to be waterproof and it's not. My speaker has shut off and now cannot hear anything! In calls or music. Yet Motorola expects you to call them and talk to them with their broken phone and I don't understand how that can be if they're putting phones on the market that fail when they're protected and claim they are waterproof just to get consumers to put money in their pockets and then try and charge you the consumer to send in their faulty phone. Or you can wait weeks to get a replacement and they need to be held accountable. It's sad that they have so many negative reviews yet if it’s not putting big money in an attorney’s pocket they won't touch any of these cases. I don't feel comfortable with fake get rich quick attorneys looking at these cases to see where they can get money. And it's about the consumer yet they have made this into a justifiable game of greed. It's disgusting!
Anyways as far as my phone it attempts to FaceTime on the phone. It makes random calls and pops up a lot of malware and unless I erase all my apps and keep it simple like calling and texting. The phone it's horrible. I recommend never buying this phone as it's a money scheme that this low life attorneys can't touch cause well they’re not real good attorneys there just nobody's who can't do nothing for anyone. And if they could they'd be doing something about it with all these negative reviews. Sad! If you want to send your phone in they do not cover the cost either? You have to pay for a phone box which is 10$ and also go to pay to print the label. Moto hold no responsibility to their products after you buy them. To them you’re making them millions of dollars to ** you over. They ** Every time a consumer buys a product cause they know they're not putting good product out there yet the government stays away to.
Why do you think AT&T is getting away with so much false propaganda? Cause they're not regulated and bought rights from the government to screw you guys over and guess what was their one thing they had the government cover up? The fact that you can't go after the company via attorneys nor can you file complaints against them either due to the fact the government has ok'd them to cover up. The scheme as long as they are getting paid which is called political contributions. Same with Moto they pay political contributions to the government to look the other way when it comes to your money that's why these stupid websites say they're not accredited which a lot of people don't know what that even means. All that means is you cannot Sue the company nor can you move forward with a complaint via BBB cause they don't care and they are being paid under the table to again look the other way.
If you go on these websites it states we cannot do anything about cell phone service or phone issues? There it is...the government has ok'd them to make phones no matter how poorly made cause as long as the government gets its share of your money why the ** should they care? They basically implemented the same rules and behind the scenes fake products and oking bad and negative issues to be covered up for police officers as they continue to kill innocent people and get away with it and not get in trouble? There is a law protecting police from killing people. It's the same here. They have been protecting the cell phone industry on the same basis.
Do not buy Motorola. As you can see all the negative reviews yet our ** government allows this to happen... So when terrorist attacks happen to America I laugh and say we ** deserve that. Lol it's not terrorist that kill us it's the government implementing these people to kill us. The government has a real life purge today and it's trying to cover it up just like this cell phone idiots.

I purchased a Motorola 4G Plus. First, died all of a sudden. They replaced it because it was covered by the warranty. They sent the same phone just repaired and it broke again, this time they told me I have to pay because the warranty was expired so I paid. I got another phone and after two months started to work funny. The touchscreen goes out of control. Apps gets open by themselves and the phone makes call. I have to remove the battery because I cannot even turn it off. I call them and they told me I have to pay again, which is not cheap and I have to be without phone for weeks. I feel that this company is scam. They sent you broken phones to charge hundreds after a couple of months that you use your phone. I won't purchase any Motorola product anymore and of course I will tell everybody not to do it. This company doesn't know how to do business.
Bought 2 Motorola G (4) cell phones. Gave one to a friend. My phone began acting up after an update from Motorola about 2 weeks ago. Icons disappeared or moved to another screen. Screens would appear and disappear by themselves. Applications would just vanish and had to be reloaded. And the phone would dial numbers without my making a call. I saw it happen right before my eyes. And calls or pages I was viewing on the net would blink out and go to another page that I had not wanted to bring up and it would do this without user input. Like this phone was possessed. Called Motorola and they said that phone could not be repaired via a fresh system update but had to be exchanged.
The phone is 4 months old. I use Webroot as my security. For the exchange to happen I have to pay $24.00 shipping to have the new phone sent to me and if I wanted to have a new phone sent before I would return the defective phone Motorola wants me to pony up a credit card hold of $200.00 which would guarantee I send the old piece of junk back to Motorola. Hey I'm not the one ripping people off by selling garbage to the public. Why should I be inconvenienced?
I purchased a factory unlocked Lenovo built 64 gig Motorola G5 Plus online approximately 6 months ago. I liked at first. At the time it was the best bang for the buck for the features I require, which are unlocked and not branded with any carrier logo, global network compatible LTE, CDMA, GSM, UMTS, at least 64 Gig primary storage, at least 4 Gig RAM, additional SD card slot for at least 128 Gig. Other specs are decent enough for me, including the camera.
I really wanted to like this phone more than it has come to. Although it was so much faster and more capable than my previous smartphones, a few quirks became evident now and then, including the network disconnects that others have complained about, funny noises, sudden dimming and recovery of the screen brightness while being used (not getting ready to sleep) and weird things like echoing calls and other phenomenon like that of a hacked phone. Every test I've run reveals no overt sign of hacking.
But the worst thing just happened, the Power button broke... it sank down in the frame and never popped back. It's always been iffy to find the sweet spot for making screenshots. Luckily, it snapped while trying to take a screenshot, so at least the phone remains on at all times until it's fixed or replaced. Other users have posted the same complaint except the phone couldn't be turned on.
The design, placement, materials and craftsmanship of the Power and Volume buttons are less than stellar or downright crappy. Lenovo apparently sacrificed quality workmanship in the effort to get this model on the market in a rush to present it as a budget alternative to the posh offerings by Google, Samsung and others with similar potential. But at least it's paid for, and for the time being it still serves its purpose despite its quirks and the broken power button.
It has been over 12 weeks for a promotion that was claimed the day of purchase. The arrival date was 4-6 weeks. Every 4-6 weeks to the day I would call and be told it's still pending when I have email confirmation showing that it was accepted but no tracking number is provided. They tell you it's a third party issue and not theirs but they will document it on your account. Do not ever buy a product from Motorola. They don't support them, they don't take care of their customers and they don't solve issues. They give you the runaround. Also they blame everything else but them. I have contacted the FTC and BBB as well as attorney general about this matter. They refuse to take their device back even if something is their fault. DO NOT BUY FROM MOTOROLA!!!
Did not send promised/advertised projector - WE send required "Barcode" and whatever receipts we had from Verizon store, where we purchased Motorola phone. Motorola send us respond that there is no receipt. Of course we make payments, and obviously at the moment phone wasn't paid off. FALSE ADVERTISING!!!
I bought a Motorola Force 2 with the free projector with it. I was called quite a few times and emailed. I Never did get my Projector and the phone doesn't even compare to Samsung which I normally prefer. The Motorola service sucks. I am not impressed At all.
On December 11, 2017, I bought the Moto Z2 after shopping around because they offered the projector mod for free. I was supposed to receive it in 4-6 weeks. Since then, I have exchanged seven email chains and had several long painful phone calls with Motorola's customer service. I got the AT&T store where I bought the phone to contact them. Motorola said they never got the first receipt, then they couldn't read the one I sent, then I went to the store and watched the guy send all the information requested. Again, Motorola said that they didn't receive it.
After all this hassle, they sent me an email which I had to add information to and forward back to them. I was promised the projector would be sent in 48 hours. The last email I got said they were starting the process over and I could expect the mod in 4 to 6 weeks. I'm convinced at this point they make this offer to get you to buy the phone but hope people will get frustrated and give up before they get the free mod. I feel conned. I'll never deal with this company again.
I ordered a new Motorola Z 2 Force edition phone for SPRINT for my boyfriend for Christmas. I am a full time college student and when I saw that the discount did not get applied to my order I called into their sales support and asked for the change to include the discount. While on the phone with me they re-did the order and placed an order for the wrong phone. We had a delayed Christmas due to children at other parents houses. When the phone was opened it came on and showed VERIZON on the handset. You can imagine my horror of a gift given that could not be used. I paid with my bank card since I choose to NOT use credit cards and they don't take PayPal for payments. I called Motorola and went through 2 steps of customers reps to get a supervisor and ask for a refund and a label to return etc... She gladly helped me and gave me a Motorola internal reference number for the conversation as well as her name etc.
She indicated I would get a refund email within 24 hours so I could turn around and purchase the correct handset and get that on its way to my boyfriend whose Christmas present was less than amazing as I had hoped it would be. I have now waited 72 hours and I still don't have the email and after speaking to three levels of customer service with all the tracking number and proof the handset is in transit back to Motorola (which the rep told me 72 hours ago that she would issue an immediate refund so I could make this right for the Christmas present that went so wrong).
So now 72 hours later there is a tracking number and Motorola still is refusing to issue the refund until it is actually received, NOT AT ALL WHAT WAS AGREED UPON - and I have an internal reference number from the supervisor who was assisting - where she gave me her name to call if I had any issues - and she would come on the phone if she was in - so any of the employees can see her notes... Now MOTOROLA is NOT going to back up what the employee said they would do - to make it right by the customer - when an intended gift went so wrong - and it was the fault of the Motorola rep who re-ordered my phone as a gift the second time around.
If I had made the mistake I would not have asked for any special treatment, however with this being a Christmas gift - gone horribly wrong - and then the first time I spoke to a rep at Motorola I had to help them find my phone as they said it was a VERIZON ONLY phone - that there was not a Sprint capable handset!!! The rep made the same mistake that the rep or re-ordered the phone made when they placed the order for the Christmas gift. This is why the supervisor who helped me 72 hours ago agreed to issue the refund immediately so I could get the new phone ordered. She was trying do the right thing by a customer who had a gift gone horribly wrong. Buyer beware - Motorola will not do anything to back up an employee of theirs trying to do the right thing for a customer order they screwed up as a Christmas gift. I am horrified. If this was for me - no big deal - this was a Christmas gift.
Purchased a brand new Moto G(4). Not even three month old the battery stopped holding charge. I setup warranty repair online. They sent me used phone (mine was just two month old!) and few days later I discovered that it has same problem if not worse. I contacted the escalations department but they pretty much told me to go fly kite. This company is the worse. Nobody should be buying their products.
I just bought a Moto Z Play and Hasselblad lens from the company website. No complaints about the equipment, but I also ordered a case which was not delivered. Submitted complaint on the website, got a response that I should submit a complaint on the website! Called the phone # instead and they sent me to UPS! (I don't think it's a UPS problem as I received the package, but one item was not packed.) Went back to online agent and pointed out they were sending me in circles. They asked me to submit the info again directly to them.
Two days later (on a Sunday) I got an email that said since they hadn't heard from me, they were calling the problem "solved". I replied to the email providing the correspondence history and saying the problem was NOT solved. I received an immediate bounce back message saying they didn't recognize my email (The same one they just sent to)! Went into my account and reset email. Same result. This is all about a $20 item. If they can't solve the problem, I'd just write it off to bad luck, but I don't like being jacked around in circles. I've already spent more than $20 worth of time on this. This is among the worst customer experiences I've had. Motorola's got a serious, serious problem here.
I feel like they doing the same as Apple iPhones. I can charge my Motorola Droid X phone battery all night & get up to 100%. Within 3 hours my phone turns off. Sometimes it shows 50% battery even 90% it will turn off & has to be charged again before it will even turn back on. I have used their FLASH APP. Bought a new VERIZON Charger. Still same crap. OH they off a ADD on Battery but VERIZON STORES dont have them & even Motorola Store shows out of stock! Flee Bay has them for just under $90.00. This is crazy. I dont even have the phone paid for & it's JUNK. I hope that there are more people out there on these forums that are will to draw a class action lawsuit against Verizon & Motorola. IF you Read this Please text me & us. Stand up for a product thats junk. I am ready to bring action. If they cant replace their JUNK free it's useless to have a phone that wont hold a charge 5 hours & it's sitting doing nothing.
I have a Moto Z phone that is supposed to be under warranty. It had some issues and I've explained that I have to use the phone for work. I need to get numbers off of it, destinations, and anything else that may come up including needing the reliability of the phone to be on when I need it, however due to the issues I have in a short amount of time I've had it. The phone is still under warranty but for that warranty to be honored they want me to either pay almost $500 to get my phone replaced and wait for the refund once the transaction is complete with the phones or go quite a while without a phone while I wait for my phone to go to them and then within 4 business days they will ship a return phone. That kind of warranty is garbage no matter how anybody looks at it. We buy these phones because we need them and mine being only a few months old is worthless.
Was the ones I really liked when I bought our TVs. DVD/CD player built in, has beautiful color and great picture. Couldn't find a better brand in my price range.
I have got Motorola Atrix from AT&T in 2011. There was a Liquid Damage. They told me that they no longer support the model. So, I have to pay for replacement device (Moto 2nd Gen). Screen was broken. So, I had sent it back. I paid for replacement. They sent me broken one which has this signal dropping issue. So, I have called them. They sent another replacement for the replaced one.
New one was also having the same issue. The process was so problematic that I was done with it. I had to be on call every day for the same issue like 4 hrs. I had to tell the story then they will connect me to different agent. Then that guy asks the same questions. I had to explain and then again they sent to another one. I had to explain the same. This was going on and on. So, I just fed up and asked my money back which I have paid for this first replacement device. They say the they are not giving refunds.
Recently bought the Motorola Z2 2 months ago. It's supposed to be indestructible. The guy when we bought it was throwing it at the brick wall inside the store so showing as it would not break. My screen broke. I took it back up to the store. He was in there again throwing the same phone up against the brick wall in his never broke but when mine fell out of my pocket it broke. They won't return and refund my money. They will not fix the device and I ended up having to pay $150 to have a new phone shipped to me and the phone is supposed to be indestructible. I think they better look up indestructible and see what that means before they put that on their program and not honor it. I would give it zero Stars if it would let you. Do not buy this product Bo Fair aware.
I called to ask about notification "chirp" when Moto Voice is activated by the code word to let you know to continue. The rep thru broken English kept telling me to look at the microphone on my phone. I tried with no luck to explain to him that Moto Voice is for hands free - he never understood what I was trying to say. I then asked him how to assign a ring tone to group contacts which also got me nowhere. So I called back and asked to speak with someone in customer service - I was transferred and after 20 minutes of the phone ringing, hung up only to call back again. This time I asked for someone in the US but was informed there was no one. I have had Motorola phones for a while but their Customer Service is getting worse not better. Maybe time to change.
Been having hardware issues with my phone but they do not help at all. I explained the issues were hardware related and the lady simply pawned me off on my service provider... She could have helped she said... but felt it really should be brought up to my provider. I explained I have had been talking with them for 3 days and she remained unhelpful. I understand if I was not a customer... but I OWN a MOTOROLA. It will be my last though. I get frustrated when companies do not stand behind their products.
I bought a brand new Moto E4 Plus, end of September 2017. The "fingerprint sensor" stopped working THREE WEEKS later. I didn't buy a Motorola phone to last only 3 weeks, and I'm considering filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission.
Most of the phones I have owned have been Motorola brand. They have developed a good balance between quality, features, and cost. I bought my current phone, Turbo 2, because of the build and in particular, the shatter resistant screen. Their website is clean and easy to navigate. The customizations available on their site are a plus as well. When I've had questions submitted through their site, they have been quick to respond, friendly, and professional. I am well pleased with the company and their products.
Motorola Moto G 2nd Generation has been a reliable partner; never had a problem. For basic tasks, it's very good. No means to install a memory card and camera resolution could be better, but for a sub-$200 phone, it’s not bad.
The phone has been durable, good battery life, and very minimal upkeep. Screen size is very good and very adaptable if you have poor vision. Also very easy to use.
I purchased the phone 8 months ago and about 6 months in, I have gotten the red and black stripes. Many hours of customer service and a phone rest and still no fix. Long time MOTO user but will be switching soon.
Was a great value for the money. Battery life an improvement over my previous phone and 8 MP camera takes great photos. Android Auto can be sketchy though.
This is a good phone and I especially like the fast charge capability. However, after about 7 months, the battery loses its initial charge much more quickly.
My Moto Droid Maxx 2 is reliable and the battery lasts for 2 days of regular use. Also, the 16 mp camera takes excellent photos but the only drawback is that it is available with only 16 gb.
