Anonymous, 17 Apr 2024Probably due to the brand's nostalgic reputation, just... moreYour comment couldn't be even further from reality. Unlike Nokia, Motorola still exists and has been doing well recently. Sure, they don't have anything to compete with Samsung's and Apple's overpriced flagship phones, but they are not targeting that market. Motorola has been all about the midrange market and they've been doing exceptionally well there. And in that market, Motorola completely destroys Samsung.

    NeonHD, 17 Apr 2024I believe that most of the bad image quality is due to Moto... moreI certainly get superior photos with BSG's Gcam on my Edge 30 Fusion and Thinkphone. The only setting I change is to enable AWB. Colours are slightly too contrasty with it enabled, but they're washed out with it disabled. The quality is good, though due to the colours, I prefer photos taken with my Pixel 6a.

      Anonymous, 16 Apr 2024Put samsung logo on it and many here would pay €900Motorola doesn't have a good reputation of providing software updates timely unlike Samsung. For €900 one can buy a S24 or S24 plus better than this in almost every aspect

          Anonymous, 17 Apr 2024Pixel: too many software issues and some hardware issues ... moreMotorola has mediocre software thanks to MyUX and also has the worst software support in the industry, mediocre cameras, boring designs, ridiculous prices, etc. Are you trying to imply that Motorola has the same quality as Apple? In the United States, Motorola has less than 5 percent market share.

            Motowhat, 16 Apr 2024How is motorola still alive?By making phones of good taste.

            Also, Motorola remains as one of the few smartphone brands in the US/Canada aside from the big three (Apple, Samsung, Pixel).

              I believe that most of the bad image quality is due to Moto's image processing.

              You should be able to get much different and better results with a gcam port. I mean, it's mainly just bad color rendition.

              Maybe next time they should also do a co-partnership with a major camera/lens manufacturer.

                Pantone Validated Skins? Nope... Makes you look like Thanos? Sure things.

                  After a plethora of video reviews in India over the controversial usage of the UFS storage (2.2 as opposed to a more desirable 3.1), some claiming that Motorola has tuned the storage to be at par with UFS 3.1, it was bit surprising to see even GSMArena mention that their tests resulted in speeds indicative of the faster 3.1 storage type. @GSMArena, is it possible that the company is using better storage on higher variants (since you seem to have the top-end model) and lower one on the base models?

                  Context: All Indian reviewers who got review units from Motorola say they found faster speeds. Some reviewers who bought the device on their own (presumably the base model) reported speeds in line with UFS 2.2

                    4500 mAh wtf. Hell no even if you want to show your phone charges for 18min hell NO in 2024. This phone was almost perfect 5500 mAh is the standard for 2024, I wouldn't mind 40min of charging with a larger battery 🔋 capacity.

                    Moto you almost came close to producing a perfect smartphone. I'll pass...

                      Jon8652, 16 Apr 2024Why would anyone get this over a Xiaomi, Pixel or Samsung? ... morePixel: too many software issues and some hardware issues

                      Samsung: cheap looking, slower than other because of oneUI, exynos, isocell camera

                      Xiaomi: laggy UI iOS wanna, too high SAR , too thick cam bump, overheating issues ( some flagship models with same motherboard death like LG G3)

                      Not even iphones have these issues

                        Why would anyone get this over a Xiaomi, Pixel or Samsung? Pixel takes better photos, while the S23 and Xiaomi 13T Pro both have better performance and similar cams for cheaper price

                          delivers excellent value here in india well done Moto

                            The photos are overly saturated. The greens in the outdoor shots and the yellow tinge in the snail shot look artificial. I was hoping this generation would see an improvement in processing. I guess not.

                                  700€ in europe? Lol it costs half of that in India.
                                  This should be like 400-450€ max in Europe.
