Fair point.

I was only searching for 'Moto G8', so that's how I missed it.
Yeah to be fair I searched the same and the others didn't show up so worth having this one

10 came out in September. It can be up to 6 months before it rolls out across the phone manufacturers.
This phone will get 10.

Loads - wifi issues, signal issues, no 5Ghz, lack of updates, stuck on boot loop ....list goes on. Look on the moto forum for more details. Have you joined the moto forum?

No problems on the G8 plus. It is a massive upgrade and a full fix on the problems found on the G7 series. Imo this is a perfect phone and yes it will get android 10, when? I dont know

Ah yes forgot that one...
In general the G7 series was a disaster for motorola and they were cheeky by not admitting/acknowledging the problems or even trying to fix the issues with possibly a SW update. Instead the G7 series was quickly discontinued after only a few months then Motorola released the G8 plus as a stand alone with all the fixes.

Just had a quick look at the Moto forums, and random shut downs seem to be a thing. Hope a fix is released

You can't have it all. I was a big fan of Motorola but I think lately they've lost the plot and they were not very helpful when I had problems with 3 G7 phones this year. So I've decamped to Samsung. Never going back to Moto again. Never!
And good luck if you have problems...support can only be described as dishonest, shoddy and unprofessional!

Hmmm. So I haven't experienced these issues. I'm using 5GHz Wifi fine as well.
I hadn't looked at the forums till now, and that's the problem with the forums. People, including me, generally go on there to report an issue. Those without issues don't bother to report "everything is fine". This leads to a distorted view of the reliability and the forum just full of people with problems.

I'm not saying that there aren't people with issues. Just that it isn't necessarily everyone. I see now that the G8 also has issues on the forum as well! My phone did apply quite a few updates out the box, so maybe things have improved.

Xiaomi Mi A2 is at £50 less and takes better photos for same processing power.

'Massive upgrade...' you made me giggle.

Good luck with support and updates on your Xiaomi?!
At this rate Donald Trump will be coming for your Xiaomi just like their brothers at Huawei

The G7 Series doesn’t have 5GHz WiFi support!
But yes, I see your point. Doesn’t that sum up the fact that there are serious quality control issues with this phone?

There are/were clearly quality issues, I just saying the forums can give you a distorted view of how widespread they are.
Just checked, the Power and Play do not support 5GHz but the Plus does.

Erm...I don't think you realise, but Moto phones, made by Lenovo, are Chinese, just like Xiaomi and Huawei.

''Lenovo Group Limited,[4] often shortened to Lenovo (/lɛˈnoʊvoʊ/leh-NOH-voh), is a Chinese multinational technology company with headquarters in Beijing. It designs, develops, manufactures, and sells personal computers, tablet computers, smartphones, workstations, servers, electronic storage devices, IT management software, and smart televisions.''

Can any body provide info on the security updates on these? Is it monthly updates and how long are they supported for?
Does Motorola G8 plus have wifi calling?
