But its the trend right now. people now dont think about using a device for more than a year or two, thats why they dont care what happens in the long run. I personally wont mind having a top LCD instead of OLED in the flagships I wanna buy, but the lowest brightness of the display has to be really low so I can use my phone at night without stressing my eyes. in case of LCD, most of the companies dont care about it, for me its a big drawback. I guess for a lot too.

The minimum screen brightness is too high on this device and it's not pleasant to use at night in bed

Your right about

Why lack of OLED is con? OLED does not posess significant advantages over IPS while having pwm problem. Yes it might be better for battery in most situations, but OLED wears your eyes instead, so for me, having IPS over oled it definitely pro

Let's not forget that Motorola is actually Lenovo!
Prices will always differ from father to country. This is the market economy. The bad thing is that more money gives worse configurations for some countries!

I think its disgraceful that Motorola should release a 5g Phone in the UK which does not yet have the software to allow 5g service with one of the biggest UK Providers-Three UK.
They have used the covid restriction excuse, which is frankly not my problem. Motorola are a disgrace and need to sort their phones out as some of us cannot afford to waste good money on more 5g phones!!!

LCD panel colors are true to life, and they don't degrade over time, unlike the aging process of OLED pixels. It really bothers me, thinking about how colors degrade at different speeds in OLED panels. Why would you want a finite lifespan (or the possibility of screen burn-in) for the panel of your expensive device? So that you can have deeper blacks or a faster refresh rate for a few years, before the screen begins to look different from when you bought it? That's definitely not for me.

Motorola has always been terrible at phone and security updates.

I don't think IPS or OLED should be used as Pros or Cons of any device - just the relative quality of each within their own category as they have different use cases. OLED is for folks who use their phone low to medium hours per day and can upgrade after 1 year to 18 months, IPS/LCD is great for folks who use their phones a lot and want the phone to last 2-4 years potentially but would otherwise destroy an OLED screen by burn-in wearing it down.

the 5G Plus has a large battery and big display, this suggests high usage and maybe lots of multimedia playback and I'd say thats a great indicator IPS may be more useful for its demographic.

8/128gb = 230€

You must already known that 3rd country price always lower than europe, especially for chinese phones.

No image stabilization? A deal-breaker for me and my shaky hands. My G7 Plus has it, why not this?
