Bluetooth earphones actually have their advantages..

No headphone jack no buy

So the new trend is using 8mpx for zoom cameras and then upscaling to 12mpx? Like why? Xiaomi was able to put a 48mpx sensor in 5x periscope but other brands can't?

This is an ideal phone for me, though I would have loved to see a 3.5mm jack, but I guess everyone is moving on, I'm not even sure why moto is, they don't even make tws earphones.
I have used a couple of moto devices some things I hope they got better is at Wifi calibration, always getting reconnected especially on 5ghz,
anyway they always build well, the display and performance looks great on this one,
I personally prefer a side mounted fingerprint scanner, saves a lot while getting a tempered glass( some glasses even have a fingerprint hole cut out, really weird),
I don't mind the missing stereo speakers, the speakers should be loud enough, and I mostly use earphones while gaming or watching media, which brings back to the missing 3.5mm jack, kind of a weird loop, but yeah the latency is getting better and better with the wireless headphones, and I personally prefer a wire free life, just hopefully the latency gets better,
The Battery is always great on moto phones, peek display, no bloatware, etc, and they managed to get the bulky shape out, kuddos to that, it's weird that they removed the wireless charging, going down from their previous model, but yeah lesser price, so maybe acceptable, it's very slow anyway, but if we don't give new tech time and appreciation it doesn't evolve over time.
Camera looks great obviously it should be great, but night time photos are really bad. maybe it'll get better with otas or gcam, let's see.

The g100 has better cameras and a headphone jack and expandable storage and a good proximity sensor. We all have different priorities and preferences. Personally, I'd prefer a headphone jack over stereo speakers for example.

I got the Edge s pro as I live in China as well and it was good value for money. The only significant weakness for me of Moto phones in China is software localisation. I am used to using nfc on previous phones from Huawei, Oppo and Xiaomi for public transport but moto doesn't have their own wallet app at the moment that supports transport cards. The phone has nfc so they might update it later but they don't seem to have one yet.

i jumped right to the last page of the review, where the reviewer mentioned that the S20 FE has only a 2x tele camera, while actually it's a 3x tele camera. The reviewer also mentioned that no competing phone has a something to counter the "Ready for" in the Moto, while actually all S line Samsung phones (including S20 FE) support "Samsung DEX mode" which is probably better than "Ready For" just because it's been there much longer. I've been getting the feeling for some time that Gsmarena seems to favor Moto phones that don't really provide actual value, I hope I'm wrong!!

This phone looks like the winner of the category DOA (Dead on Arrival).

Moto is the brand offering the best price to performance ratio in China at the moment for snapdragon 870 phones. Probably because they are only really starting to sell in the Chinese market this year. The base variant's current proce is jist $340
