about Motorola Mobiles
What is the shelf life of Motorola handsets?
We cannot simply put a shelf life to any brand or handsets since a lot of factors are involved when deciding how long a device will last. Some of these factors include how roughly you handle your device, do you use a case, does it have latest processor and do you follow a healthy charging pattern? If answers to these questions are a firm yes, then you can easily expect your handset to last you atleast a period of 3 years. However, generally speaking, Motorola handsets are most durable of the lot and if handled properly can give you worth each penny spent.
How is the service network of Motorola in India?
Simply put, Motorola has the best service network in budget segment when it comes to the Indian handset market. New brands like Xiaomi and LeEco, seek a favourable return on market before expanding their channels. However, Motorola has already been an established brand long before and therefore is long past that stage. First thing first, Motorola handsets have been designed to last and it is very unlikely that you will have to go to a service center. And even if the device develops some issues, unfortunately, Motorola service centers are one of the best in the industry. Moto Care centers cover all major cities of India and even provide pick and drop.
Do Motorola handsets offer value for money compared to similarly priced brands like Xiaomi?
Yes, Motorola is indeed a lot better compared to the rest of the brands in the budget handset segment. Motorola was the first premium brand ever that came out with its affordable Moto G series of handsets, which offered impressive Android mobiles with decent specifications in affordable segment. Moto G was the first ever device launched by Motorola to compete with Xiaomi Mi3 and it managed to do exactly that. Motorola then went on to launch Moto E, another budget smartphone with great features. Today, the brand is most sought after when it comes to selecting reliable budget smartphones. Therefore, if you are looking for reliable branded handsets with great build quality and good performance, Motorola is the way to go.

How is the sound quality in Motorola Moto G5 Plus?
Do not expect superior audio quality here, as the Moto G5 Plus only has a mono speaker. Moreover, there is no audio enhancement technology as well.
What is the custom skin used by Motorola and how does it perform?
Motorola was acquired by Google for one reason only, that was to give the stock Android experience to users in budget segment. Therefore, having any sort of skin over the stock Android would have defied the whole purpose. Moto series of handset come with the very stock Android interface with couple of Motorola specific apps. This makes the handset pretty snappy and having a lightweight interface means that the user experience is also very smooth.
Why are Motorola handsets branded as Lenovo and does it affect the brand value?
Motorola has been acquired by Lenovo and the latter has decided to co-brand Moto devices to ride on the success of these handsets to boost their own brand value. As a standalone brand, Motorola was not able to gain a strong foothold in the smartphone market in the past and Google acquired it to come out with Moto series as a budget alternative to Nexus lineup with same stock Android pre-loaded. Later, Motorola changed hands from Google to Lenovo and Moto G4 and G4 Plus were the first handsets to be launched with co-branding. However, rest be assured that brand value and quality of the handsets are not compromised as the handsets are still manufactured by Motorola.
