    Any more experiences regarding 1gb vs 2gb from you guys already owning a device? Need to by a phone as a birthday gift before August 28 and here in Sweden only the 1gb version seems to be available. Wonder if that 1gb is good enough or if I have to look for another brand?

    Have the 1 GB version with zero issues. Apps open quickly, everything works as it should. I'm not playing really high graphic games or anything, but I still think the 1 GB version is plenty

    Good to know 1gb ram is plenty for you. But for me its not enough. I open 5-6 apps and many times, 1-2 apps are forced closed by the OS. And that is on KitKat on my Moto E so must be worse in Lollipop. We have here phones costing $80 coming with 2gb ram so I'm not sure what Motorola is thinking providing only 1gb ram for $180.
    Then comes the issue of only 8gb internal storage with only about half is available for the user. Again $100 phones coming with 16gb storage so why is Motorola being so stingy here.
    4gb is nothing if I want to install a few games and please don't tell me SD card. Let's say i have 1.5gb available internal storage and i want to download a 2gb game. I won't be able to download it inspite of having 64gb sd card.
    So considering all these issues, best to get 2gb/16gb model.

    You just referenced your experience with your moto E.....do you have any 2015 moto G experience? Actually hands on, not opinion, not looking at it in the store

    Thanks. More than I thought it would have considering Alex said the 16gb only had 10gb free after initial updates.

    Just ordered the 1GB since 2GB still is not available in my country (Sweden). Bummer. Hope I don't get a laggy piece of ****.

    I ordered the 2/16 version even though it was on back order. Order was placed on the 15th and the device was delivered on the 27th. Not too shabby.

    Actually 1 GB Ram model is best to have.Once you get the marshamllow update,the moto G allows you to use the SD card as internal storage that means you can increase space.
    1 GB Ram is enough for Medium gaming experience and good app opening and multitask handeling..😊
