Default Moto G vs. Moto G Differences

I'm about to order my second Moto G (16gb, US GSM) identical to the first one I pre-ordered. Unfortunately, my clumsy ass dropped my unprotected Moto G face first into the concrete cracking the screen. Not the G's fault...my stupid fault. My question is this: My first Moto G was from the first "batch" produced. Are there any minor differences between the first round of Moto G's released and currently shipping G's? Sometimes minor things will be tweaked from batch to batch like the display calibration or even very minor hardware changes from one vendor to another vendor. Just wondering if anything like that has happened that I should be aware of.

Nothing has changed really, you may get Sharp-made screen instead of the usual LG made one, but they both are good, so nothing to worry about.

Moto is using cheaper Hynix-made memory chips on the dual sim versions, instead of the usual Samsung ones which perform way better and less heat output.
Let's hope that these didn't make it to the 1032...

Other than that, everything else should be the same.
Mental issues lead to the use of long signatures

Care much for receiving Thanks?Bitching at the others about it doesn't help, instead better stfu and gtfo.

You seems to have one of the better versions of the XT1033, maybe a whole batch was made, no idea, but certainly there are ones with Hynix RAM chips.
The eMMC is made by Toshiba for all Moto G's that I've seen so far, altho they might have another suppliers for NAND flash storage.

Do not worry about hynix or sandisk or whatever

Any ram or emmc no matter toshiba or samsung can develop a fault
just a matter of chance
