Anonymous, 28 Apr 2020Dude your phone is from Samsung right? then you complain about the software bugs? well are you... moreIf you think Samsung One UI is heavily skinned, then you don't know or don't remember the good old days of the Touchwiz. Samsung UI is not perfect, but it came a long long way from its early days. Also, is the only one I find useful and attractive at this moment (Xiaomi, Huawei, Realme UI's are not for me). Not to mention, that so called "stock Android", that is so boring and dull, I can fall asleep using the phone. Stock Android is as boring as IOS for me.
Is funny, because I know people with stock Android phones, that immediately install a different launcher (like Nova or something else). I mean, if they are so into stock Android, why they are so keen in customizing their phones?!
But anyway each with their "problems".
For now I like One UI, is not perfect, but has a lot of interesting stuff and is also very stable nowadays.
P.S. My problem with the S9+ wasn't with One UI in particular, but with some software update (from Android 8.1 Oreo to Android 9.0 Pie), that made my battery and general usage of the phone bad. Also, because I paid 750EUR for that phone and I had very high expectations, which were crushed.
But now, I have a Samsung A20e, 9 months already, and is working super (Android 10 update, One UI 2.0 received). I can say that my A20e is better in day to day usage, than my S9+ was after Android 9.0 update, and is not even a joke.
hey there, kinda broke right now, can i get a phone between $200 and $125

Ben using Motorola flagship for many many years and to tell you what it doesn't have any lags even it has 4GB of RAM only and OS update is not necessary for me since Android nowadays gets boring they dont have any new features to give you.
AnonD-844967, 27 Apr 2020compare it to oneplus 8 non pro and you will see few differences. it is just a slightly bigge... moreThe problem is that One Plus 8 it's not compatible with T-Mobile frecuencies
NeonHD, 10 Mar 2020You sure? So gsmarena got it wrong?It definitely does. Confirmed by Motorola themselves
aryan, 27 Apr 2020I love the specs. But isnt the price a lil high even for a 5G phone.Not worth the price. For $1000-1200 is overpriced. Doesn’t come with ip 68 rating, no expandable storage, and only 18 watt charging no different than iPhone charging speeds. Motorola is trying to copy Apple with price to feature ratio
There's been plenty of phones will beefy specs that have failed to deliver.
Let's see what Motorola can do.
The Ram will be the highlight along with the camera features. I mean the speed that will be with a 12 GB RAM - imagine.
I am leaving this comment here. not necessarily to put in a bad light Motorola, but to say something very painfully true.
The problem with expensive Android phones (with very few exceptions, like One Plus or Google Pixel), is that they have poor software updates, or loose their value very quickly (50% after 1-2 years). I found this on my own skin when I bought the S9+ and sell it (for various software issues) after 1 year.
So, if you are planning to buy an Android flagship put yourself this questions:
1. Are you really really in need of a powerful phone.
2. Are you planning to keep the phone more than 2 years.
3. Are you willing to loose at least 50% of your money for using this phone 2 years.
4. Are you ready to have small lag, small software issues or general decrease in performance after 2 years.
Except point 4 (which is not necessarily mandatory to all Android phones, but more clearly in flagship devices), if at least one of the answers is "No", then get yourself a mid-range phone. This are the true "flagship" phones nowadays. At least in Android world. You will thank me later.
I said is more clearly in flagship devices, because the performance is top notch (no pun intended), at the beginning. Also, the expectation are very high. So, even the smallest hick-up or smallest problems, will be seen and felt more clearly, than on a mid-range or low-end phones (where the performance tends to be more linear in time).

notafanboy, 27 Apr 2020no it wouldn'tcompare it to oneplus 8 non pro and you will see few differences.
it is just a slightly bigger oneplus 8 with better camera and a headphone jack.
AnonD-844967, 26 Apr 2020Half its price then it would make sence. no it wouldn't
Lots of great things about this phone (huge props for including a 3.5mm headphone jack) but I'm not so sure about the curved screen or the outdated "fast charging" speeds. And then there's the elephant in the room, which is the price. Not sure about all this.
Generally good specs, apart from a few failures.
No waterproofing or dustproofing.
No memory card slot
I would expect that to be a recommended retail price, not a fixed price, so it should appear in the marketplace a bit lower. 8/10.
