    A member of the family has one of these but dislikes the o/s that's natively installed due to them having a Samsung. Does anyone know if it's possible to change the o/s version to give it a more Samsung-like appearance? Welcome any suggestions/options. They like the phone just not the interface.

      That's a first, I hate the Samsung rubbish they put on top and don't know why anyone would want to tie themselves to a manufacturer like that. The Samsung interface is designed to lock you into Samsung products just like using iOS as people don't want to change.

        it’s not to lock in, it’s value add, some people like the extra apps and interfaces and it means samsung doesn’t compete on price with every other generic android vendor but competes on interface and functionality.

        i prefer plain android but appreciate manufacturers trying to innovate and add value to capture a particular segment of phone users.

          Bollocks, the object originally might have been to improve parts of Android but now it's all about locking people in, making it harder to do things and to cause people to lose data if they move away because of how many of the Samsung apps store their data.

          What innovation is there in storing data on the phone that isn't backed up or synchronised? By storing contacts in multiple locations but not all in the smne place.

      Try to train them away from the samsung bloatware.
      It's a serious drain on the resources of the handset and a killer of battery life.
      I stopped buying Samsung because of this, the last one i had was an S4 with CyanogenMOD rom, battery lasted between 1.5 and 2x longer.

      If they're logical and sensible you could try explaining how the included software is a bloat and a play by samsung at getting people locked into their ecosystem of apps and thus locked into using Samsung phones…. which sounds like what has happened.

      Once people have tasted pure android they rarely ever want a phone any other way.

        Thanks for those insight virtual81 and maveirck-au. Guess the pull of the power of the Dark Side is strong. Maybe one day will even get them from Windows to Linux. Thanks.

      You want to install a Touchwiz like launcher
      Not sure if you can install it from the PlayStore or not

        @avenasat
        This post above has the right idea!

  •  

    Just a heads up, No Band 28
    Interested in buying this, to use on Telstra or Optus in southeast Victoria, any comments on whether or not this will be an issue?

    •  

      Are you sure, I got mine from Amazon UK just over a year ago from This deal, with this comment saying the phone has band 28, or is the US model a different one?

      •  

        The amazon page states it's an XT1625 in the product info, GSM arena says that has no B28.
        You might have got a different variant from amazon UK?
        XT1622 sounds like it includes B28

        •  

          Yeah, did my own home work and found out that the xt1622 does whilst the xt1625 doesn't.

    •  

      Honestly.. if you are in the City regions, then it works with all the other bands. Not limited to Band 28..

      Wrong. Look closer.

        Negged for lack of sensible info.
        Simply saying "Wrong. Look closer." helps no one.

      Different phone?
      G4 vs G4 Play

      edit - yep, very different
      see http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=8104&idPhone2=8103#xt1602,,

      Given you a + anyway because someone negged you without bothering to explain why they negged you, and all you were doing was trying to help.

        Actually, you're right. I was a tool. Sorry Deal Finder.

      Comparison for the curious

  •  

    Can anyone confirm whether it supports band 28?
    The Q&A posts on the Amazon page are inconclusive…

  •  

    motorola are trickey with their model numbers and bands released can be country specific even with same part number so a phone released in US market with the same part number as an international model can have different bands ….. need to look at the details of firmware installed, guess most of their customers buy it in the country they live in and just use it rather than save a few bucks and mail order.

      Can you provide some examples of this?

    Zero updates and no Oreo if you care too.

      LineageOS have custom ROMs for this if people don't mind going that way.
      Understand it's not everyone's cuppa VB
