And it starts here already "microSD, up to 512 GB (uses SIM 2 slot) - dual SIM model only" 

 

That is one of the reasons I got the Moto. 2 SIM slots plus micro SD slot, not a hybrid.

The only other phone with similar specs and price at this point is Xiaomi Redmi S2.

And where we are that Sony costs more than double the Moto or Xiaomi. The only Sony that gets close price wise is the XA1 and even that is 1 third more expensive than the Xiaomi.

Are you kidding? It costs more than a Samsung Galaxy S9 in Canada. About $1000!

Re: Android O update(8.0) for Moto G4 plus

It works pretty well in my case. However, I wonder if there will be an official release as well.

Re: Update to Android 8 Oreo for my G4

Now that's some exciting news! Life for g4 plus after all?

 

My Plus is now nearly 2.5 years old. Apart from a fault developing on the usb socket where it wouldn't charge (which cost me exactly £35 to have fixed) it's still going strong, works well and is actually an excellent device for the price. As long as the Oreo update comes through in the Uk, it could give it even more of a useful, longer life. The December 2018 security update will also be very welcome!

Looking forward now, to some good news
