  1. Sa hitsura ng phone walang dating. Pareho sila ng google pixel na parang china phone lang ang dating. Di tulad ng edge, ng lg v10, ng bb priv na kahit sa picture pa lang ay mukhang elegante na ang dating. Opinyon lang naman dahil hanggang pang j series lang kaya ko he he he.

  2. No one is going to buy that, especially its now a lenovo brand phone, 80% of the original moto employees are gone so you can bet updates will be just as strange as their Lenovo phones.

  3. Just got mine last week.. Sawa na sa boring setup ng phone.. Phone camera standard speaker.. Atleast now pwdeng slr, projector, loud speaker… Enjoy lng
