unxpctd, 05 Apr 2022I also can't get over the fact that the selfie camera ... moreI get what you did there🤣🤣🤣

    I also can't get over the fact that the selfie camera is 60megapixels but has no autofocus. Get your priorities straight!

      Anders, 04 Apr 2022George Carlin was 100% right when he said "Think of... moreI don't think that's fully true. The SoC now occupies a significant price of these phones.

      REMEMBER, not too long ago the price of the 8 series increased by 40%! You really think that dropped since then, not to mention COVID and chip shortages? This is one huge reason why you aren't getting any more. Things like Poco are unicorns.

        This phone is dead based on the skin alone.

        The quick settings are an abomination. How come my LG phone, a phone from a company who had to quit, gives 6 ~actual~ quick toggles and 16 toggles on expansion when this one can only manage 4 and 8? It's ugly and less functional, who wins here? Design nerds who drool over their own work? Seriously, LG UX 10 and 11 are both miles ahead of Android 12 in looks (I personally prefer 10 to 11, 11 looks more iOS-y polished, whereas 10 looks more like Android).

        There is so much space wasted on the notification panel and the media player is just hideous. I fully expect Android 13 to start nesting even more stuff inside of itself and taking padding to a further level. God forbid we have any kind of information density or tech-y looking design, it's just full on baby shapes and color saturation that looks like somebody's high is ending and it's back to grim reality.

          $900 = gorilla 3 on screen.

          Motorola is become worse than xiaomi

            Moto and Nokia are the only options besides a Pixel for people that want stock Android. I'm not sure which company is worse. I'd go for a Pixel 5a before Moto or Nokia. That said, I hate what Google did to Android 12, so I'll stick with Samsung and Realme.

              It would be nice if there was an option to filter out the phones with a flat/curved display in the phone finder section.

              I am convinced I can never accept a phone with a curved display, problem is very few 1440p displays are flat, only ones I can think of are the realme gt2 pro and redmi k50/pro

                Did not realize that the official price is expensive ... In my country this phone is the cheapest Snapdragon Gen 1, less than $600 for basic model .. albeit it not officially sold by Moto / Lenovo.

                It's even cheaper than realme gt 2 pro.

                  Ladrak, 04 Apr 2022I have had a Motorola One Fusion Plus since almost 2 years ... moreBefore Lenovo acquired Motorola, it was the exact opposite. Motorola under Google had super timely updates, as timely as a Pixel (unsurprisingly).

                    Terrible battery life, direct to the recycle bin

                      Anders, 04 Apr 2022Crappy oled combined with the also crappy Snapdragon 8 gen ... moreLow standy time is software issue.
                      Realme with same cpu scores near 50h more.

                        I have had a Motorola One Fusion Plus since almost 2 years and Motorola is simply a fraudulent company. They promise OS updates that are heavily delayed and they just don't stick to what they promised. Even after reaching our to them, it's simply a joke. I agree the phone looks good, but trust me stay away from this company

                          IpsDisplay, 04 Apr 2022So just another poor battery life smartphone Crappy oled combined with the also crappy Snapdragon 8 gen 1 = terrible battery life

                            ithehappy, 04 Apr 2022Companies are able to push out just about anything nowadays... moreGeorge Carlin was 100% right when he said

                            "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that."

                            This POS costs €900 and it doesn't even have IP68, a telephoto camera or even a metal frame. It's got to the point where these supposedly "cheaper" flagships are costing just as much as a Samsung or Apple flagship yet are vastly inferior. And that's saying something since Samsung and Apples flagships are garbage too. Phones have become expensive and terrible

                              Every time a SD 8 gen 1 phone review comes out, I am reminded of how good of a decision it was to get a SD865 phone (S20 FE 5G). I hope Qualcomm will move their upper midrange and flagship SoC fabrication to TSMC in the future.

                                Companies are able to push out just about anything nowadays, knowing fully well the stupidity of customer needs.

                                  So just another poor battery life smartphone
