I thought motion photos recorded a clip at either side of the photo it takes?
The ones I've been taking in the last few days seem to record a clip before, but not after, so the photo is taken at the end of the clip. 
It also doesn't always seem to line up - I've had a couple that have a photo that doesn't seem to be part of the motion clip, and seems to be about half a second after the clip finished.

Can anyone confirm similar behaviour and expectations?

As far as I've noticed, motion photo has only ever recorded 1s worth of video BEFORE the pic. Nothing for after.

hmmm, perhaps I'm remembering incorrectly, or remembering from my iOS days.
I've got another device on Android 10/OneUI2.5 - I'll check on that.

@ryamoo,

 

Motion function records the clip only before taking a photo. It doesn't record anything after a photo is taken. So as you said, the photo is taken at the end of the clip. This is a normal behavior 😉.

 

If you notice any issues regarding the motion function, please report them via the Members app :hand-with-index-and-middle-fingers-crossed:

I've checked this on another device on Anroid 10/OneUI2.5, and yes you're both correct, it only records a clip _before_ the photo.

I think part of what's thrown me is the how much of a delay there seems to be between the end of the motion part, and the image being taken. 

Quite often when I'm taking a photo of something in motion (like my baby laughing), it missing a considerable amount between the end of the clip and the actual image. 

I took a photo of him on a swing, and when you flick through the photos there's a drastic change to his position on the image once the motion part stops.
