I have the g9 plus and haven't found it laggy in the slightest, imo the verge review was either extremely hyperbolic or there was something wrong with his device
When it comes to looks, Motorola has moved things on a step from the Moto G9 Plus’ plastic chassis and ugly, square fingerprint reader. The rear of this year’s model is clad in metal, with the Moto logo etched in relief in the centre and although the frame of the phone and its top and bottom caps are still built from plastic, it looks much more attractive.
that's great to hear. I love my g8 and play games on it. the ones I play are smooth as can be. looking forward to upgrading
If you do want the Plus, get the $255 version. $855 is too much to pay for a Snapdragon 617, even if there's 9GB of RAM. I'd also suggest buying direct from Motorola as you can customize the phone with Moto Maker.
The Moto G9 Plus has an extra surprise right below the display on the front of the phone a fingerprint scanner. I'm personally more in favor of rear-mounted fingerprint sensors, but there are perfectly good arguments for front-facing ones too. This does, however, introduce the problem of what to do with that sensor when the phone is on. Should it act like a home button? Should that be a toggle in the settings? Motorola chose to have the fingerprint sensor do nothing while the phone is on. You can press the sensor to wake and unlock the phone, and that's it. The sensor seems to be one of the faster and more accurate I've used. It's not as fast as the OnePlus 8, and it's not quite as accurate either. But it's close. Not bad for a $255 phone.
It's worth noting that the Moto G9 Plus is identical to the regular Moto G9 in size and design &ndash and 155g. It simply has the fingerprint scanner below the screen in addition (below). The scanner is quite small compared to others we've seen on phones and has a small raised border around it making it feel a bit different to the touch.
I'm sure Firefox android loaded with the ublock origin and phony extensions will work just fine on the g9, it does on the g8.
Firefox android has come a long way. (try scrolling down engadget with chrome, then try with Firefox. huge difference)
Under the rear panel is also where you'll find the SIM card and microSD card slots. The SIM slot is micro instead of nano, which is annoying, but there's a SIM adapter that is basically just a tray for the nanoSIM. If you still have a microSIM, just take the adapter out. There's still no NFC under there, which I find perplexing. How expensive can it be to add that?
It's actually quite reasonable. For once I agreed with the Verge's verdict, mainly because they focus on what's important in a phone to the average consumer: How good the user experience is. (AndroidPolice and android enthusiast blog reviews tend to focus on aspects most average users couldn't care less about)
