What will the Moto G5 Plus be missing?

It's a mid-range phone and on those kinds of phones or tablets I notice they're missing something critical like an ambient light sensor or image stabilization or cheaped out on something that's standard to premium phones.

 

Has anyone done enough research to know what they'll be missing? I've looked over some tech specs but I'm not sure I'm not seeing what critical normal thing it may be missing for the price.

NFC is omitted on the USA version.

Why would they omit NFC on the US version? The US is compatible with NFC.

Besides NFC it is also missing the LTE band 20 that is used internationally in EU, mostly in rural areas.

They have added the two other bands used in EU so... I don't get why this decision.
