      Hello guys at GSMArena. Please bring back frequency response tests for the 3.5mm jack in phones that have it. I did buy Moto G8 Plus after reading your review. Its audio output is indeed miles ahead of some of the flagships.

They didn't even use the GW2 sensor, the successor of GW1 which is present on S20 as a secondary camera. IMX 686 would have been a great replacement for the old GW1.

              Android Authority say the cameras are poor, GSMA say they're mostly impressive. Who's right? Currently have a OnePlus 6 which I'm considering upgrading with camera performance being a priority, so this is important to me.

                Honestly, if you're on a budget, unless you really need 5G now (who does?), it feels like you should either get last year flagships on the cheap or wait until the next generation which should be more mature (and maybe cheaper? once can hope).

And that is arguably the best 5G band available, since you don't have to be in direct sight of the tower to use it, and it will provide faster speeds than 4G.

                    The global variant is actually perfect for a T-Mobile user to get. The only concern is updates and/or development for the phone, which appears to be lacking. I'm not sure how well RealMe updates their phones!

V60 and Sony are probably quite good, but most budget-oriented devices have trash-tier sound quality to the point where you wish they would just save some space and remove the jack. It's fine for like $10 headset, but if you're that kind of person you might as well just go cheap wireless. For any serious music listening budget 3.5's are unusable.

                                Now I'm just waiting for the price of X50Pro in the Netherlands to see if the phone will be in my price range (I refuse to pay more than 500-550E for a phone, to be honest; but still want as many "flagship" specs as possible (hopefully the "flagship Killer" moniker is not a dying breed...) as I intend to keep the phone for at least 2-3y;

A decreasing number of people does, though :( GSMA, it seems, has *finally* settled in the last couple months. Kind of like OnePlus did once they threw away what you're talking about (back in high, a classmate had a 6 and I for sure underappreciated it back then), at higher price tags than ever before.
                                        This particular ringer ain't on my radar tbh. When the Smartisan M1 kicks the bucket, I'll probably be looking into a 5 Pro from this lineup. Could get a new-old-stock (by then) device too, but they're vanishing daily, not to mention phone batteries don't have that spectacular of a shelf life.
