    I'm still not sure, but after doing more research on Battery University website, I have concluded that there may in fact be some additional degradation (beyond normal reduction with time) in long-term battery capacity by using a 2A charger with the Moto G.

    Please see this post for my logic and references:
    http://forums.androidcentral.com/goo...ge-fast-2.html

    CORRECTION AND UPDATE:
    But here is an update since I first added the above post. (This correction is now added to the above post but repeated here for consistency.)

    I have more authoritative information directly from Battery University that changes the conclusion I drew based on my effort to extrapolate from the Battery University 'Fast and Ultra-Fast Chargers' website article.

    The extrapolation I did was based on the additional loss of battery capacity cited when going from a 1C to 2C charging rate. But according to direct communication from Battery University, when charging at a rate below .7C there should be no measurable improvement to long-term capacity by using slower charging rates. Charging above .7C would still be expected to add more stress to Lithium Ion Polymer batteries and likely add to long-term reduction of capacity.

    So, what this means for the Moto G and Nexus 5 is that there should be no measurable difference between charging with 2A, 1.2A, 1A, or 850mA chargers as far as effect on long-term battery capacity goes. Both the Moto G and Nexus 5 are supposed to automatically restrict the charge rate at 1500mA even when using a faster charger, which is just at or below .7C for both phones. So, as long as the charger dependably keeps to 5V, a higher amperage 2A charger will be faster but pose no problem to long-term capacity.
    Hey Matt,

    1. So can an Apple usb wall charger be used for Moto G?
    The apple charger output is 5.1V and 2.1Amp .

    2. I have read everywhere that Moto G can draw upto 1.5Amp. Even if you use a 2amp charger, the phone's software will draw only as much as its required (which is 1.5 in this case) and it wont harm the phone.
    The question is - When the phone is switched off and the software is not running, can we still use a 2amp charger? How will the phone then be able to regulate how much amps to take in, bcos the software is switched off.

    Request everyone to share knowledge on this, especially Point 2.

    Thank you

    When you plug in the charger, the phone turns on, even if it's off before you plug it in.

    All the free internal storage barring that set aside for the OS ( which takes circa 3.12GB) is available for mixed use - Apps, Media, Docs, Photos etc. So you'll get circa 12.92GB in the 16GB version, or 4.92GB in the 8GB version.

    RAM wise the OS seems to use about 300MB, with the rest of the 1GB being used for running apps (including System Apps).

    I recently bought Moto G (GPE) from US. There is a very small dot (almost the size of a pixel) on the right side of the black space just above the screen. It is not on the screen but on the upper black area and light comes out of it when the screen is turned on. Also its brightness varies with that of the screen. It is only visible when the screen is on and you look really closely. Has anyone else had such an experience? or is this a fault and I should return the device?

    We came away from the Moto G event today with devices in hand. If you've got questions about Moto's new affordable version of the Moto X, here's the place to ask them.

    Go!
    I have not been able to find moto care or the app to install it. What did I miss ? I have a moto g.

    I cleared the system cache and the standby battery drain was cut to about a fourth. With minimal calling and no wifi, I can probably go 4 days on a charge now. Kit Kat.
