Youtube Video ID: U2WPjw-WaCI

It is blocking the USB connector and yes it looks pretty ugly too and I'm actually afraid of breaking it off while im stuffing it in my bag etc.

and yes im new here (just abanndoned the german android-hilfe (after 4 years) forum cause of the nazis) and am not allowed to post links

Soo conclusion in my very opinion is: there is a high chance of no antenna whatsoever in the moto g. Im afraid.

Interesting video but I also wonder how well this would hold up. I carry my phone in my pocket. Even more scary is would it stress the USB connection enough over time to cause problems.

Question is how much do you need NFC. I had a NExus S for almost two and a half years but I never used it for anything, I did not even spend the 10 USD bonus from Google Wallet app.

Oh guys, don't get me wrong this is not a hack I'd use in a productive system. And yes as I mentioned it is not a very good idea to use something like that.

And even worse I mixed it up: I was talking about a QI charging pad. It is not the same as the NFC you were talking about. The QI standard allows you only to charge your phone; you cannot use it to transfer data.

Sorry for my mistake...

No biggie. Your iFixit point was probably the strongest in the thread. This would certainly be something they'd have noted/discussed when they performed open Android surgery.

Nope. It'd still be a recognizable part via printed model number of some sort.

Even Motorola has to obey the laws of physics.
