    Yes I find it happens after a period of inactivity and then doesn't happen again for a while like a few hours or so but it has crashed on me several times a day. But now am using a KitKat launcher instead as I am not a fan of the black background behind the app drawer. it is a great little device

    I would side load the "Home" launcher that came with the Nexus 5. It works terrific, no crashing, plus you get Google now on the left.

    The Verge had this report about a pre-release phone they tested:

    I actually had a big problem with the first Moto G I used. A manufacturing issue with the processor inside caused the device to run out of memory very quickly, making multitasking impossible. Motorola says it was an issue with pre-retail models, and indeed the retail phone I picked up later doesn’t have the issue.

    Motorola tells me it’s scanning all devices coming off the factory line for the issue and that it won’t affect retail units. To date I’ve heard just a single report of a day-one retail device with the problem. I’m confident the company is on top of the issue, but if your device behaves strangely, the processor problem might be the reason.
    Maybe nab a RAM-usage widget and keep an eye on it to see if it correlates with the crash?

    That is strange, I do not see that issue on my Moto G. Since you have already done a reset, I would return it and get a new one. It's still under warranty. Unfortunately a few lemons get out.

    Absolutely loving this phone it a bit better than the Razr Maxx I replaced this with even though it won't match the battery life of the Maxx.

    Most places in the states are 14 days, if Phones4U is 30 days, run and get a replacement from them. Otherwise you have to go through Motorola.

    Well here is my 2 cents .
    I just received my girlfriend new moto G first impression it is well built very nice screen, snappy operation in general,speaker sounds loud clear ,first I got the phone I downloaded Speedtest app and the speed is around 10 mb/sec compare to my moto x with 32mb/sec big different that's explains the slower browser speed, we are using both on T-Mobile network in new York the moto g is a 3G capable device compare to the moto x 4G LTE radio T-Mobile term, some reviews pointing out the browser speed and explaining it with the 1gig ram but the radio has a big effect on it obviously ,
    Regardless it is a great device for those who not into browsing the internet often , also takeing the price into consideration.

    have you tried wi-fi? i always have 1-2 bars of signal in my room but it is still damn fast lol

    here in Brazil 3G is crappy and 4G we can only dream of...and also i'm basically always on wi-fi (home, university, bf home, dad's home, open spots) so i rarely use 3G (thank god...it is expensive and horrible lol)

    and i can tell you on wi-fi browsing is fast! also i don't use Chrome...too heavy and buggy...been using Dolphin for a week and it's butter smooth XD

    still gotta try FF and Opera!

    The internet is not so important for her its good enough ,I use opera because they have text wrapping so you don't have to scroll from right to left when you read something, its really cool you should try it.

    I love mine I sold my iPhone 5 for it and couldn't be happier the performance is really what shocked me at first I can play all the intensive games even dead trigger 2 on high even though there's a tad bit of stutter and the design doesn't even feel cheap at all

    I am finding on my Motorola G the gap between the screen and frame collects a lot of dust and bits which i find hard to remove. Looks a little ugly
