Processor is slightly faster on the Note. Note has a Full HD+ screen as opposed to HD+ on Moto. Also, Note has one more camera (wide-screen) and is a dual SIM phone with dedicated SD memory card slot. It will be officially released in UK in 2 weeks but will cost another £30.

Motorola's biggest strength over the years has been its software and interface, easy and a joy to use. Software support has been pretty good too.

Add few more quids and go for Xiaomi mi A3, great specs and decent size
I notice that like the Xiaomi mi A3 this variant of the Moto one does not have NFC.

I think so, because of the much bigger battery. This price extraordinarily good, considering it just launched. G6 good option as well, won't get as much software support though. Check out G7 family too, Power & Play closer to your budget

But their biggest issues have been ghost touch screen issues and software updates that cause issues like severe battery performance drop and they never release a fix. I have had many Moto phones but Lenovo are doing a good job at ruining this brand.

Never experienced those issues, since G5 flip they've done pretty well I'd say, they've been reference in mid-range. Now the Xiaomi onslaught is big challenge, but MIUI is no match imo, Android One is though (Mi A2, A3, Nokias)

I've had a mixed bag really - Moto G original (excellent), Moto G2, (OK) Moto X Play (software update caused issues), Moto G4+ (software update caused issues)

I've never had the ghost touch issue but many many people have this on G4 and onwards.

Only Z and Z2 Force myself, no issues, latter really good even today it can hold its own

Remember many pre-2017 phones of all brands had flaws of one kind or another, industry really took off since reliability-wise.
Models you mention are mostly ancient

Same here, Original MotoG (X2) & G3 (x2) - 2 of them still going strong. I stopped buying after Lenovo got involved

In some specific cases it is possible to use other networks even on locked phones as I was doing this, but I did run into some complications.

I had a EE locked phone that I was using with my virgin sim, at the time it was known these worked together, but I recently had to get the sim replaced and the new sim does not work. If I just did a casual google search without looking at dates I may be under the impression it should still work but recent posts highlight this is no longer the case on new sims. So just be extra careful to confirm current compatibility and be aware there are no guarantees long term.
I have recently had to update my 2 Virgin Sims at their request, not sure of reason why

AFAIK Virgin are in the process of moving off of the EE network and on to Vodafone instead. This might explain why the new Sims might not work on EE.

Good old Motorola now owned by Lenovo.
We've got lots of Lenovo bricks in family...wouldn't even consider personally.
Also I used 5 different Xiaomi phones and ordered over 20 for family and friends in past years (started at the time unknown note3).
All of them still alive and performing like new with very frequent soft updates.
Their QC is also amazing as all nearly 30 phones delivered with no single fault!
Make your mind

I made it already, owned a Mix 2 and sold it. Just didn't like interface, some bugs were not ironed out then, but that can only get better - I found bugs in Emui too, despite even more thousands of Chinese coders working on it.

Motorola has a simple interface, providing a very pleasing experience. Some people get acquainted with Miui too and love it, some features are good. My personal favourite is Samsung UI, Pixel and vanilla next.

Currently finding nice, smart tweaks in LG's skin (my G7 recently got a late, but interesting Pie update). Xiaomi is improving all the time and wouldn't mind owning another flagship, I just can't buy every good phone out there...ran out of storage space

A bit sceptical with Chinese brand/make, is Moto now one of them?

Only since 2014!
It baffles me that a company (in this case Motorola), has been bought and sold all over the place?.

Because, historically, Motorola pretty much singlehandedly started this whole wireless wotnots from wayyyyyy back in the Day (1975 in the U.S.), via their walkie-talkies.

Baring in mind that alllllll the walkie talkies used at the time by security guard's, emergency service's staff's (eg. police officer's, ambulance staff, fire officer's, coast guard's), cinema staff, shopping centre staff, and/or individual store staff's (eg. Sainsbury's, Tesco's, and suchlike), CB radio's, and ...

Were alllllll via the same one brand - Motorola.

But yet?.

Then about 1 Decade or so later, they amicably transitioned into wireless technology of a slightly different kind, eg. mobile phone's (naturally, lol).

The know how (and obviously the thoroughbred that also went with it), was already longgggg already there/here, etc, etc. :-D

(Again), but yet?.

I don't get it?, lol, what is it I'm missing in this picture?.

As it honestly doesn't make any sense ...

As they genuinely could have been the BIGGEST game changer's out there (as one's like Nokia, Samsung, HTC, and suchlike started wayyyyyy later on in this game, and so far (for the here and now at least), have blatantly been able to hold their own very, veryyyyy well).

Hmmmmmmmmmmm, that's my 2 Cents anyway ...

"the name was then sold onto Lenovo."

Hence the decline in the quality of some of Motorola's former product base?, on account of Google formally nabbing it all ...

That's actually quite interesting, as I was aware of both Google + Lenovo respectively owning Motorola, but wasn't actually aware that Google chose to blatantly hold back upon the lion share, lol.

(Makes good business sense I suppose?).

Thanx.

Lol, ahhhhhh yes, very true.

It's a shame that Kodak never took it upon itself to make a Poloroid form of technology for itself, from wayyyyyy back when also?.

(I'm assuming that both patents, and patents pending had a massive aspect to play in that too I guess?).

As that sort of tech blatantly never harmed Poloroid themselves none? (via both digital, and non-digital alike).

It's a shame though, as I used to luvvvvvvvvv the Kodak stuff's (as I grew up via my parent's Kodak camera's of one lol or another - as I'm assuming many here Today too also did). :-)

Life ...

Leading companies sometimes make massive mistakes, look at Xerox they invented the GUI, mouse, etc and did nothing with it except let others copy it!

Same with IBM, they handed MS the PC DOS market with such a foolish licence when they could have negotiated anything they wanted.
Can this model be unlocked easily???
Had a quick look in eBay and didn't see anyone selling codes,
Thanks
Thanks ordered one. Nearly didn't as its nearly amazons Black Friday, but its a good deal for a brand new phone. Just have to work out how to get money on a Moto G5 with a broken power button....
