My wife just replaced hers. Reasons: constantly running out of storage, battery was going out, and calls were dropping.

Since I'm using Jan 2016 .Low speaker from starting..Camera is good .. Battery is main drawback for 1yr usage it see 12hrs per day..Now it's 3hrs ...

Been using the phone since January 2016, but I'm looking to upgrade in the next 6-12 months. Probably will get an international Moto G7 or the BLU/Bold N1. I'm just waiting for decent pricing as I'm a canuck.
