Geekbench 3 is used to measure the full potential of device's processor , Marshmallow really increased the performance as well as potential of Moto G 3rd Generation .


Battery -


Battery Life Lollipop Vs Marshmallow ( Moto G 2015 )

Moto G 3rd Generation takes approx 2 hours 10 minutes to get fully charged from 1% to 100% on both Android Lollipop and Marshmallow .

After Marshmallow update the Battery life got terrible , Battery will be draining a lot faster than Lollipop after Marshmallow update . It can be seen that WIFI is eating a lot ( approx 40% ) of Battery in Marshmallow .

On Android 5.1.1 Lollipop ,When Charged Battery to 100% , Battery lasted for 1 day, 7 hours, 26 minutes , After a normal usage .

In Marshmallow it lasted only for 1 day, 1 hour, 3 minutes .

Pros and Cons of Marshmallow update on Moto G 2015

Pros -


  • Smooth UI
  • Better RAM management
  • Now on Tap
  • Expandable Storage 
  • Advance USB connection Options

Cons -

  • Battery life is terrible 
  • Can't access Sdcard from PC ( Though it can be fixed )
  • Double Chop For Torch Isn't working that easily !
  • No option to Mute Camera Shutter Sound .

Marshmallow is good , but not for Moto G 3rd Generation ! Moto G 3rd Generation was always better in Lollipop . All One wants is a great battery life and For now Marshmallow can't provide that . May be that will be fixed in 6.0.1 Update . 

All I can say 5.1.1 Lollipop was better than 6.0 Marshmallow on Moto G 3rd Generation !
