Good Bye MXPE it's been fun.

2018-04-10, 17:11 PM

This has been fun, but my MXPE and Motorola dictated that it was time to move on.  This has been a rock solid phone for me, and I reluctantly give it up, but the battery is shot, and at $100 to $150 to replace, it's just not worth it.  I bought this phone when it first came out, and took part in both soak tests (as my primary no less).  When the Moto X4 was announced I was very excited, as it look like it would be a good replacement for this phone. However, the powers that be decided that the USA would only get 32Gb of storage!  Even with an SD card, this would not be suitable.  We have a G5 plus as a backup phone, but no NFC kills that as well.  Hello Pixel 2 128Gb!  I will miss Moto Actions (I know how to chop), but not as much as I love the best phone camera currently available.  This will be only my third phone since 1990 that is not a Motorola (Nokia 3310 & HTC EVO), it makes me kind of sad.  Have fun ya'll!

You might want to Google "Moto G6" before you make that decision final ... Soon to announce... Very soon. Look at recent news articles

From:  https://www.motorola.com/us/products/moto-g-gen-6

 

NFC

No

 

From:  https://www.xda-developers.com/motorola-moto-g6-moto-e5-series-poor-software-support/

 

"Motorola has now stated that the Moto G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play will get one major Android update." (Only *one*)

 

Compared that with Nokia 6 2018:  better CPU, 2 years of update, NFC enabled.  Why would I choose a Moto?

I too have moved on.  I went with the Google Pixel 2 XL.  I loved the Moto X Pure but the single biggest factor was the lack of timely updates.  The phone went from Marshmallow to Noughat and the Noughat update was a long, long time coming and even then it was to 7.0 when 7.1 had been out for a long time.  The security patches were way out of date.  Lesson learned: great phone, but no support makes for a mediocre experience and customers who move on rather than become lifetime customers.
