For all those of you who didn't bother to ACTUALLY read that the compass/magnetometer is ONLY for US-version. And that if you compare US and international Motorola homepage, you will spot the difference.
Addy2994, 06 Mar 2017It's showing there is a Magnetometer https://www.motorola.com/us/products/moto-g-plusOnly US-version has compass (but not NFC), rest of the world has NFC, but not compass. Simple as that.

Finally its getting that U-Touch kinda feature that lenovo introduced in its Z2 Plus phone. Really excited to see what else it has to offer.
Well for some reason in the uk website of motorola on the specifications tab -> Sensors
It doesn't say about compass or magnetometer, weird but its possible not including a compass ? how about gps ? how it will see the direction you see or go for navigation ?

John, 05 Mar 2017After March 15. I think via AmazonIt will arrive on Flipkart first..
Why am I supposed to buy a phone that doesn't come with a compass/magnetometer? Or are they providing it in the Asian version? answer me guys!!
GaganAhuja, 06 Mar 2017I read on some website that sensor and nfc are region specificthis is true. Compass for USA but none for europe. Apparently each region either got the compass or NFC for some reason but not both. Don't know who's better off. I stand corrected.

SIGH, for all those who couldn't bother to check the OFFICIAL lenovo/moto site, or if you checked and couldn't bother to use GOOGLE to find out what a MAGNETOMETER is, IT IS A COMPASS. Refrain from spreading FALSE RUMOURS that it has no compass.
Andr0, 04 Mar 2017John, as you can see from all the European websites, there is no compass on the sensors list. ... moreIt has a magnetometer which is a compass, why don't u ppl google these things before bashing the phone & company

A compass is a simple example of a magnetometer, one that measures the direction of an ambient magnetic field. This is something that the G4/G4+ didn't have but the G5 phones have got it. Plz stop perpetuating this false rumour
