Hi Tom, 

 

Can I say a BIG THANK YOU, the Motorola site has now been updated to include a Magnetometer, so now I am sure it has a compass I will be purchasing the phone! As the Motorola UK website does not have a price  I went to the Lenovo website, it has the price £269, but sorry to say it has omitted the Magnetometer in the specs, maybe you can fix this too. Thank you once again Tom.

This is good to hear. I'm sorry it took longer than I expected to get fixed. I'll see what I can do about the Lenovo site.

This is on my G7 Power, German version, no magnetic sensor from the app.

 

I do notice on the moto uk product spec page, G7 Plus / G7 they do have "Magnetometer", but no for G7 Power / G7 Play.

I am really sceptical about the alleged presence of ANY worthwhile compass on ANY mobile 'phone.

I am a keen walker and I know of no regular walker who uses the "compass" on any mobile 'phone.

Using a mobile 'phone's GPS chip to indicate North or direction of travel is not entirely reliable either.

As someone suggested earlier, use a proper compass, kept well away from your mobile' phone at ALL times.

 

ps - regular compasses don't work as mobile phones ;)

Does "GIROSCOPIO" listed below means compass?

In english - gyroscope is 3 axis sensor. Magnetometer is compass.
