It all depends on the cost now. If the cost is too high with the Snapdragon chipset, it would be a waste of money.

Install Nikita Gcam. Moto will perform much better. I have done it today. Images , especially wide Lens, are nicer .

I'm in Australia & I got an update to Android 10 only TODAY.

Very good proposal. In Bulgaria the price is 197 Euro, which is absolutely OK and there is no competition - Xiaomi Note 10 Lite is 315 Euro.

I'm not saying Sony Sensors are bad in themselves, just that the software in Sony phones doesn't make the best of these sensors. Though, frankly speaking, I would like to see more phones use the new OmniVision 48 and 64 mpx sensors with larger size and pixels.

There are better sensors in Sony portfolio but the choice is always with the phone manufacturer. They're the ones that decides to put that sensor in there and if that's not good then it's their fault for choosing that particular sensor when better ones were readily available.

Looks almost exactly like Fusion plus in terms of features and I really don't understand why they are doing this.

Agree with all the specs except for the processor. The Snapdragon 730G is not even fit for the gaming needs.

My moto G8 plus had android 9 when I bought it back in 2019 and it was just updated to android 10 last week. Great phone for the price but don't expect regular updates. I assume they consider the initial low price when they know some buyers will get a new phone when android 12 comes out

Doesn't feel worth the money.
The plastic unibody probably will make some heating issues since the mainframe is not aluminum, heat dissipation is gonna be shot.

The camera setup is kinda meh, only the main sensor is useful the rest is repeated garbage that every brand puts into phones to rise the camera count.

$273 against other global phones like realme 6pro and poco x3 with better stuff and lower price? Nah pass

I never came across such an in-depth review of a gadget. Even as a layman reader who has no great idea on gadgets i felt it a good article. I appreciate the effort by gsmarena team.
