Thinking about getting your hands on the 2014 Moto G from Motorola? Well if you are, perhaps you’ll want to hold off on your purchase for now. According to a smattering of reports from Moto G (2014) owners, it seems that there is a memory management bug that is plaguing the phone, so much so that apps are force closing themselves.
Now before you think that these are users who have maybe like 10-20 apps running in the background, it does not appear to be that case. Instead these are users who are reporting that they have maybe 1-2 apps open, and instead of apps being closed to the background, they are force closing themselves instead.
These appear to be affecting all sorts of apps, including major ones from Facebook and WhatsApp, so before you think it could be app-specific, think again. Given that the Moto G comes with 1GB of RAM, this should not be happening especially when there are other Android phones with 1GB of RAM that are doing just fine.
No word on when we can look forward to a fix, but it seems that even with Google rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the phone, it has not been addressed. In the meantime anyone with the Moto G (2014) experiencing anything similar, and have you found a solution?
