  1. Both the sims may be LTE compatible BUT they CANNOT be in LTE standby at the same time. One will be defaulted to 2G. Cannot use both SIMs on 3G or 3G/4G. The non-cellular data SIM with be defaulted to 2G. Absolutely useless feature.

  2. SD card contents are not showing.
    After I updated my MOTO G3 turbo to Marshmallow, the contents of my SD card disappears randomly. In order to access that content I have to restart the phone. This is really frustrating.
    Even after some time of restart content of SD card will again disappear.
    Even I have changed my SD card, but in vain problem remains.
    Please provide me solution for this problem.
