    Hi guys, I thought it would be useful to open a new topic because I know some of you are interested.

    Got myself a new phone because I was fed up with my cheap Cubot.

    Have any of you got experience with the Motorola G4 5.5 ins? It seems ok.

    Hi Derek, I've got the earlier version of Moto G4 had it for over three years with no problems, I might upgrade soon and will probably go for the latest Moto G5

    I think Chris has the same model as you, he's had his a few months now so will be able to report on his experience with the phone

    That's not happened to me Derek but its easy enough to remove the apps just press and hold the icon then swipe them up to the top of the screen and you should get an option to remove them.

    My problem when I first got the phone is that the apps were set for automatic updates which swallowed up my Data  Shocked I now choose which apps I want to update and only when I connected to Wi Fi

    My problem is, my previous phone made calls and went "bleat bleat". This one has so many bells and whistles I still haven't learned to drive it properly. But it does have a pretty excellent camera though, and works well for the price.

    .

    There is also an option to uninstall apps but having tried it just does not work though it does stop them updating, trouble is the phones comes pre-loaded with all the apps most of which I'll never use which is a waste of space
