Just bought one of these to tide me over while my HTC One M7 goes back to get sorted, have to say first impressions are very good!

NikT: Plenty of band 3/1800MHz 4G outside of main centres, & more going live every week: http://www.vodafone.co.nz/network/coverage/

Turning a mid-range device down because it doesn't support a band that's only present in one flagship phone in this market & not live anywhere yet seems a bit silly to me. :)

Band 28 support will become more common as operator demand ramps up & the cost of the brand spanking new chipsets that support it come down. Unsure why anyone would have realistically expected it in the LTE Moto G, still a bit early!


Because I fully expect that any 4G where I live will be 700MHz

Very little coverage for 4G and I don't even get good coverage for 2G  and 3G and I am 100M away from a 3G antenna 
 unless my phone is faulty,  but Vodafone came back  and stated that a was in a bad area  and to use 3G, I get the same signal level as I do with 2G and have no need for 3G.


Paraparaumu is not even listed for 4G and comments from Dick Smith stated their was very little coverage in Wellington, that comment was made
a month or so back.

The higher the frequency the lack of good coverage 

The 700Mhz band is new as they had to remove the TV channels from it,  its used on OZZ and UK.

Don't think that the UK uses 700 Meg but 800Meg for LTE..

Yes, though there is no 4G/LTE with that version of the phone though.

The moto e is available on ebay for around 220NZD including shipping.
Described as: Motorola Moto E - Global GSM - Unlocked - 4GB 
It is only 4GB but does that matter if it has the micro SD slot?
Does Global GSM mean it works on Telecom?
Thanks

Surprised I have not seen Android 4.4.4 on the moto G after it got 4.4.3 so quickly.




Try Vultr using this link and get us both some credit:

Is it really worth it with the very limited rage of 4G here and No 700Mhz band, I think the E has a SD slot does the new Moto G 4g have the same.?

 

I thing why we don't get the 16GB version here is the price will be to high.
