    Have been using Pixel 3 but had to go back to the P2 after the P3 developed issues. Hoping Google will get it sorted out

    Been using a Moto G7 for around a year now; the regular version, not the G7 Power or G7 Play. It's my third Motorola as I've had a rather good experience with the brand. For a budget-level phone it's got almost all the features and perks I need and care for in a phone, only lacking induction charging. So, I bought a small induction charger adapter and just leave it plugged in: I don't use the USB-C port anyway. A bit annoying though because my previous phone (Nokia Lumia) had built-in induction charging and was a much cheaper phone.

    Still, I always encourage people to take a hard look at the budget phones when they're looking for a new one: the $600+ Samsungs and LGs and Google phones are all well and fine, but you can get a lot of phone with a $200 Motorola.

    I'm on the verge of buying the G8 Power, never had this brand of phone before, use to an old Samsung but I'm fed up with the bloat ware that comes with them, not sure exactly how much less will come with the Motorola but I guess it's worth a try??

    I have been using the G Stylus for a couple of months now. I don't particularly care about the included stylus but I liked the additional RAM over the Power's larger battery. Prior to that I had the G7.

    The Motorolas do run almost completely vanilla Android which was a draw for me. There is no bloatware, just a few of Motorola's additional 'features' (gesture controls etc).

    I probably wouldn't have grabbed either at full retail price, but I picked up the G Stylus for $149. If you're a Google Fi customer and the Power is currently $99. That is a steal.

    you'll have a little bloatware in general, I guess, depending on your definition. No phone is completely clean as far as I know. Also depends on how you get the phone. I have service via Verizon, and the G7 was not one of their standard phones, so I had to buy the phone on Amazon and have it activated. Doing that meant I didn't get any of Verizon's bloatware on the phone, but there's still some useless Google garbage that you get with any standard Android install, and of course you have a few Motorola-specific apps because it's their product. But overall it's pretty clean. Definitely worth trying: worst case scenario is you dont like the phone and you can sell it for almost full price, or keep it for a cheap emergency backup phone if your primary one bricks.

    Oh yeah, I'm sure you are right there, it's a real shame that you can't choose what to keep or delete on any device that you own at the end of the day, Motorola just seem to be the best of a bad bunch shall we say.

    Just a word about the shift to non-user replaceable batteries:
    It's not really "planned obsolescence" going on, though it can look like it. In the effort to achieve better miniaturization and slimmer casings, cellphone makers have opted for proprietary batteries that can accommodate custom space requirements. Standard batteries cannot do this. Also, by making the cases sealed, no hatches easily exposed, water & dust resistance is higher. In fact, the trend is moving towards NO sockets or hatches at all. They're all moving away from user installed memory, audio jacks, and power jacks. There will be just one slot--for the SIM card. And eventually, that will disappear too. You would have a virtual SIM card that is digitally transferred to the phone by an authorized agent.

    ESIM for the primary SIM is standard with many new phones. The 2nd SIM slot is the only slot with user access.
