If phone A and phone B had the same camera sensor but completely different specs and phone A took sharper pictures, would it be possible to get the same image quality on phone B if it had the same camera app?
Motos renowned for no bloatware... strange you say the opposite,the ones I've had can be a tad slow.. normally an unresponsive screen seems to be a talking point.
Had g5 and newer ones (smash screens allot lol). All have stupid amount of Moto services loaded and running in the background that can't be removed. View the full list of installed and running services you'll see how much rubbish they have added onto the base system.
Eh? I’ve had 4 (G series) over the last few years - no bloatware at all - that’s one reason I chose them.... Maybe other models are loaded with it? I’m now confused.
Bought this some time ago - not had an update for a while despite it being in the Android one programme. Good phone otherwise, but I wouldn't buy now.
"Qualcomm Helio P70 Octa Core" after this merger I expect prices of silicone to go through the roof. ;)
Really annoyed they basically replaced the G5G Plus with this thing, was looking to get one and they're out of stock in a lot of places now. The screen is awful, my current 4 year old Redmi Note 4 has a better screen and cost less at the time! What are they doing!
Why is Motorola sticking to 4 gb ram for these phones, since last decade, while others have moved on to >6gb?
I meant specifically a Xiaomi phone bar the one mentioned and the Mix 3. For all the phones they put out it wouldn't hurt to put out smaller ones.
Holding out for the Moto G60
Pixel 4a 5g and pixel 5 if its within your budget, https://www.gsmarena.com/results.php3?fDisplayInchesMax=6.5&s5Gs=0 All these phones are 6.5 or less and 5g, so take a look https://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_redmi_note_10_5g-10768.php 6.5 inches and has 5g, should be coming to UK relatively soon
The booklet shows a picture of one SIM SIM tray and a pictute of a two SIM SIM tray and they look identical. I guess that I cannot go on appearances. I have to go by the number of IMEI numbers on the box and so you are correct.
Just to add, if you don't need a dual SIM it is still a great price
From my understanding ( I could be wrong ) a dual SIM will have 2 IMEI numbers written on the box. Mine didn't and after I returned it they changed the advert to say single SIM. Also, I have a dual SIM one already and it says SIM 1 and SIM 2 on the card slot. I know in some phones you use the SIM card slot as the second slot, sacrificing the SD card, but this phone should have to dedicated slots. Worth complaining and seeing if they will give you some compensation.
The way that I read all of the reviews was that like my Nokia 8, which it replaces, you can put the second SIM into the SD Card slot. Is this not true? I have not tried a second SIM because I do not need to use one.
I ordered one when it was £99. Go the phone and it was single SIM. Had to return it. I think they have changed the listing to reflect the fact it is only single SIM.
I have been using this for about three months without any issues @neo4403 The lack of NFC isn't a concern for me, and the WiFi and camera work well as far as I am concerned. I just got my Android 11 update and agree on the points you make: a quality phone for the price.
Motorola (Lenovo) are dire when it comes to OS updates. Best to steer well clear of them if you want the latest OS reasonably soon after release.
Ah, thanks for the good feedback. I am receiving my phone today. I am in the same boat with WiFi as you are.
I am not it's quite as simple as you make out. I am posting this on WiFi with 2 g8 powers connected to 2.4ghz and I am getting a 20mb steady download throughout my house on both phones without issue. Also other 2.4 and 5ghz devices are connected. This is a cracking price for the phone. Pity its only 2.4 but considering I used to have 5ghz on my old phone I do not notice the difference. Perhaps the updates are slightly slower to download but it's not like I sit there waiting for them. Streaming video via Netflix, iPlayer and YouTube without issue. Great phone.
Think I'll avoid G8 then. Thanks for the feedback

A bit slower on the upload than 112Mbps which is the fastest I've seen.
650Mbps! Blimey!! That’s fast
O I use this for home broadband tethering on a Vodafone data only Max plan sim. I get about 300Mbps down, but a terrible 3 to 10 Mbps up. I get dropouts when using Google Meet on my Mac, but I think this is some issue with Meet when using a mobile hotspot. I have used the phone outside and had speeds in Chiswick of 650Mbps down and 112 up. Motorola take forever rolling out OS updates. This thing is still stuck on Android 10. This will come with an EU plug and you'll need to buy a screen protector for it.
Mine just arrived but it is faulty. So disappointed with Currys
Anyone else had BS from Currys? Received a email today with their usual crap along the lines of "It has been brought to my attention that the product that you have ordered is currently out of stock with no future stock replenishment". I'm looking forward to this company going down....
Ive seen a couple of mixed reviews, including this postive one HERE. I don't think you can really go wrong with these at this price but if they are rubbish they will be going back with free returns so no worries.
The 2 reviews are accurate, one of mine constantly drops the sound, they don't fit my ears well and the hooks are hard to clip on, and they can't be charged with the hooks on, right one is half the volume of the left but that could just be mine being cack, I swapped ears and my ears are fine
Tbh not confident I'll receive them since Ive had problems with Currys in the past.......let's see

Got one it's a rubbish phone jumps all over the place.Would not buy a Moto ever again.
I believe, both are valid spellings of the word. One is British English and the other is American English. Americans spell most words phonetically. It was in the news last week that some academic people and organisations are saying we should reform the English language and get rid of some of the weird spellings like "their, there, they're" as it's very confusing for some native English and non native English speakers.
The only thing stopping me buying this is the esim, I’d be wanting to switch between this & my iPhone! If only it were as simple as switching one device off & on. Phone looks amazing (party)
No pay as you go at all as you can’t get pay as you go e sims, o2 was esim on co tract only above a minimum price , the networks also only let you change your esim a few times a year then they start charging so you can’t swap sims over it is a terrible design , it’s looks beautiful but it’s literally useless
I bought one a month ago and it is still in the cupboard , single esim and only EE offers EE sims if your on a contract in the UK , and even that was a pain in the backside to set up so much so it went in the cupboard never to come out , that’s why there allways on sale because you can’t use them
These do not work in the UK unless your are on EE pay monthly
Thanks for posting. Your thread was selected for our Highlights section (highfive)
I think you are right. As it is UK phone, it is most likely single sin. If it was dual sim, it would be an excellent main budget phone or indeed a backup phone.
What that means is they do both single & dual sim models. Which one this is is unknown until someone buys one but most likely single sim.
Its best to stay away from Xaiomi,, or rather MIUI etc. I have just bought Xiaomi Redmi Note 9T.Although this is an excellent quality phone, one never can tell what data is passed to China, for good or bad! I guess I will have to put a different ROM in not too distant future
This is press news but not a proof. The Motorola didn't confirm it. They said it is not decided yet.
Just in the process of sending mine back which I bought for 200. I wouldn't waste your money or time far too many screen issues
Stay away from this phone, check the previous deal, it was £200 and most of buyers complained about a green tint showing up few days after use, including me. For £200 it was a risk worth taking but for £329 defo no. You can check on eBay people are still trying to sell them for £270 brand new. You are welcome
Lovely phone, decent price, still getting quarterly security updates for a year £1,000 for a Motorola phone is indeed a circus, though Edge+ is a lovely phone too, Motorola didn't help itself with marketing
Google is a good website forbes.com/sites/jaymcgregor/2020/05/27/motorola-confirms-the-edge-is-only-getting-one-android-update/?sh=61c05e3c7657 It's more expensive brother the edge+ will get 2 after Motorola backtracked because 1 update on a £1000 phone is a circus.
These are very comfortable over head phones, nice clear sound with decent noise cancellation, the only downside is the time between charges is not very long, 5-6 hours, reduced to about 3 with noise cancellation active. Still good phones though. Heat.
I have these https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0899XBCT1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 well impressed for the price.
These or mpow or tribit ???
Ah! I missed rechargable battery part....but still, I would rather not think about batteries.
