getting my g6 plus delivered tomorrow. very good specs for under 300 squids.
just noticed it doesn't have a LED notification light on front-which is odd.....
but anyway, ordered a case for it. unfortunately, it's shipping from outside the UK
God that's ugly
ps it's clearly copying the famous Mondrain dress by YSL 1965. always loved the colours and wanted to paint my living room feature this colour combo

So I've reinstalled all the apps I want, apart from the bus one, which I can't find.
My phone is running much better now, so thanks Miss-Shelf!
AFAIK everything is back apart from my photos and videos which are stored in various places, I don't want all of them back on my phone, just a few, so need to sort that.
I got mine today. can you confirm where the photos you take is saved to? I cant find the gallery app anywhere. It seems to save to google photos. gallery isn't on the phone itself?
Google photos is also a gallery app that merges local with cloud. If you look with a file manager they will be there.
i rather it had a gallery app like samsung rather than saving to google photos. might look on play store for one.
Why wouldn't you want your photos backed up?
Anyway I'm sure you will find plenty on there. I've gone the other way use Google Photos as my default over the Samsung...
i will probably get used to it, tbh. first day usage.
Nice thing about Android of course is you can do that. .
One thing I disliked about the G4 was the camera. Viewed them on the S8 I replaced it with and turns out it was the screen I didn't like. Had some printed quite large and they are great.
And the G5 is down to £109 on Giffgaff and O2. Both plus £10 top up and probably network locked,mind
have you found the call volume on this low? took a call and caller volume seems low which makes it hard to hear what the caller is saying. can't seem to find anything on setting about call volume
update on this. really has great battery life.
I've still got my Moto G 2nd gen 4G - my first smartphone, had it over 3 years now
Going strong, still, battery is good, sometimes gets stuck if there's too much open
My battery has been running down much quicker recently. Could this be due to the hot weather?
How old is the battery?
About 3 years.
Probably a bit of both. My OH was at the F1 on Sunday and her iPhone which is usually pretty good at lasting a day and a half, just went down rapidly in the heat, not helped by us texting constantly to tell her how many seconds X was behind X or what happened to so and so to cause a safety car.
anyone else have the charging issue?
I got the G4 and it's failing, happened to my G3 as well, charger doesn't always work and even when connected it sometimes goes down or takes a long time to charge
also hasn't said "turbo charge" for ages
not sure if the port on phone or something else, have googled, read a few threads on forums and a couple of shit youtube videos saying to reboot it or put it in freezer etc
Failing charger? I seem to remember the G4 needs a special charger for turbo, which is a bit shit.
tried a few different ones and it works on partners G5
and mine won't connect to computer anymore for longer than a few seconds
Fluff in the port?
gonna try that theory when i can find my compressed air can!
does seem to be a bit better just from booting it up by holding down power button for a while
any g6 plus owners managed to set up gboard and mini me? the option isn't there for me:
Move over Memoji: Here's how to use Google's custom Mini selfie stickers in Gboard
DO NOT GET the G6 play! Good battery but shit sound recording on videos for some reason, it's a known issue as I discovered after getting one
My G6 plays gone back after the mic broke in less than 2 months. Seems like a common problem. Bloody frustrating having a phone where no one at the recieving end can hear you.
I got my g6 delivered yesterday, it looks dead swish but I'm a bit scared of the whole thing being made of glass.
Loving it so far, upgraded from a g4 with a ghost inside. Not really had much chance to try much but I'll post any problems/gushing joy here.
A lot of people online advised against getting the g5, saying the g4 was a better phone.
I just wait for my phones to break before upgrading, was just good timing.
Oh and the fingerprint thing
