Hi Hoshang,

Hi Hoshang,

 

We do have to make tradeoffs to meet needs of different markets and keep the phone a great value. In most uses, the compass function isn't essential, but we'll share your feedback with the product teams.

Re: Does G5+ has Magnetic Compass

Is Magnetic Compass not available for Moto G5 Plus launched in India?

Re: Does G5+ has Magnetic Compass

What a bad answer...Why US needs compass sensor and Why Indian's don't need compass sensor? Why don't you highlight the difference? You broke my heart. I waited for so long and now Smiley Sad

Compass sensor max cost 5-10 dollars...right? If we are paying $245 we can also pay $250.

Well, It applies for Global Variant, Not specifically to Indian Variant. And US Variant Misses 4K support and NFC Too, They can rant on this as well. And Gyroscope is there for 360 VR Experiences.

Re: Does G5+ has Magnetic Compass

The fact that the European G5+ doesn't come with a compass is a no go for me. I don't know why Moto's marketing decided this. As You should know a compass is essential for pedestrian navigation as the speed is to low that the direction can be derived from the GNSS signal. And a compass is also essential for AR/VR games like Ingress or Pokemon.

 

Sad to tell You that I won't go for this model now.

 

Regards,

Rick

Re: Does G5+ has Magnetic Compass

For me the absence of a compass on the G5+ means I will be looking elsewhere for my next phone. You may say it is not an essential item but since, other than using my phone to make calls, the other other main uses of it are (a) navigating on foot and (b) using a appt that shows the path of the sun (for photography) and the former work far better with a compass and the latter will not work without one.
