  • So I just got this phone and i do like it especially the camera BUT i am noticing it being a little bit more laggy-ish than my old G7 Power which is weird because my G7 Power has a snapdragon 632 while the G stylus has a snapdragon 665. I am hoping it's maybe something to do with andriod and maybe as more updates come out it might hopefully be a more smoother experience .

  • I might get the Moto G Stylus but I currently have the Google Pixel 3a and I like the fast Android updates. Motorola is known for being slow when it comes to getting the newest Android updates and sometimes you don't even get the updates at all that's something to consider when spending money on a phone how long it will be supported not all it's bell's and whistle's that's also another reason why Motorola phone's are so cheap in price they lack big Android updates.

  • Other than iPhone, the Samsung Note product line has the highest user retention rate. Once someone uses a stylus, they don't want to go back, so they buy the next Note when they upgrade. If Motorola doesn't continue to release a yearly stylus phone after this, people who become accustomed to it may switch to note. If they continue making a $300 Note competitor, it will be a great product. But if they stop after this one, Motorola users will switch to Samsung. They may just be driving their users away if they don't release a follow-up product.
