If you really want to know about those issues being fixed I suggest you go to the dedicated forum section and ask the users:

The down-side of the Motorola is its hybrid SIM/SD card and it doesn't have an IR blaster. Other than that I think it comes down to how well they work in practice...
I have two sims, a main one with data/voice/sms and another that will be voice/sms (and occasional data standby). I don't want to carry two phones. I've read that dual sim isn't like having 2 phones... one sim may be a "poor relative" of the other and limited to 2G. I can't find definitives on how the dual sim works in these phones. AFAICT they are both "dual standby" but it isn't clear to me whether one of these phones is better than the other for dual sim usage.
On paper, the Note 8T looks like the better choice - and 128GB comes in around the same price as the G8 Plus. So it seems like the better choice.
Appreciate some thoughts, especially around real-world usage of two sim cards...
If you want both sim cards to be active on 4G then you need to make sure the phone you look at can do dual 4G standby, and I don't think there's many out there with that specific feature. Surely not for only £200, I'd suggest raising your budget to at least £300.
Redmi Note 8T might be a good choice, until you get to the fact that it runs a MediaTek SoC, which means no source code and that means no custom ROM.
I'd suggest looking at a 2nd hand device, its way more likely that you get a used Android with the long list of features that you want.
Mi Mix 2 is a good possibility, although I have no idea if it has an IR blaster. Try using GSMArena to look at specs and compare phones. It's a very concise tool for comparisons.
