2020 Winners and Losers: Motorola

02 January 2021
Motorola’s 2020 path has not been trouble-free or particularly straight, but we got a string mid-ranger lineup in the end.

I like Motorola phones, they are dependable. In spite of some of their faults I would buy Motorola over any other phone. The two Samsung phones I previously owned self destructed before two years and I’d never buy one again. Give me a Motorola any day.

One would think the Edge+ and Edge would have leaned closer to "Loser" with the shared screen issues(tint and burning) both versions suffered from and lackluster camera for the price.

I like Motorola. In fact Id like to buy one. But i dont trust their software support. Take Moto One Zoom for instance, a 400+ euro phone, it only got 1 system update. If i were to buy a Moto it must be android one, because then they are forces to back it Up for three years.

What!? The Moto e 2020 didn't even get a shout out. I'm using one until covids over so I can get my pixel 3a fixed.

Ex-Moto, 02 Jan 2021This is false. It is not a Samsung hole-punch display. ... moreWrong.

1) Refresh rate has nothing with subpixel grid. It is always the same no matter the refresh rate.
2) Every display manufacturer, no matter they are LCDs (TN, IPS, VA) or OLED panels, has its own design i.e. subpixel grid because if they used the same it would be IP theft.
3) Samsung Display owns 90+% of OLED mobile phones' display market share. Yes, over 90% so yes, 9 out of 10 OLED phones have SDC OLED panel.

My 3 year old Z2 Play has Super AMOLED display with the exactly the same subpixel grid structure like every other Samsung OLED phone, and both Edge+, and Edge.

With multiple models in different parts of the world Motorola has not done their image any good. The same phone released under different names just continues to confuse the once loyal Moto fans Until they stabalize models they wil continue to lose market share

A lot of people here blame Motorola best models, but they probably have never used the phones for long time if at all...

For the last year I had:
G8 Power
Edge+
G 5G (currently using this one)

All of them are good for different reasons, but the winner I think is G 5G - fast processor, top camera quality, 6 GB RAM, bright fullHD display, 60 fps video, comfortable shape and design for one hand using. So far so good

Motorola/lenovo has no winner this year.

Dear GSMArena, the G Fast is actually the G8 released for the US market. It added CDMA support but was actually toned down to have less RAM and storage.

Still using my Moto G5+ for 4 years!
Looking forward to upgrading to another Motorola phone this year!
