Yeah, I'm getting used to DJI doing this. I'm amazed there isn't a mavic 2 pro coming too to be honest.

That said, I've had no issues with my P4P. Stunning piece of machinery.

And actually my Phantom 4 Pro Standard works great.  It's the P4Pro+ that was bricked on arrival for the most part.   So Agreed

This isn't a P4Pro equivalent, it has no reversing obstacle sensors.  

Doesn't seem to be much else missing though.

Now where is our firmware upgrade for the P4 standard to give tripod mode...

I wouldn't call it a "new" P4P. It's the old P4 with just the upgraded P4P camera. and for those who want a screen integrated with the RC, they can have it. No back vision sensors, no side sensors....  Ah, yes, the new batteries... for 150 $ less than the P4P.

So, I was wondering about this as well, but looking at the specs it looks like the Advanced falls between the non-Pro and Pro models. The Advanced doesnt have rearward collision detection for one.

The P4 pro needs no fixing.
It's a great machine - mine has worked just fine since December.

I don't see anything off the cuff that is different besides sensors.  They included a lot of options at such a similiar price point, it would be difficult to turn down a properly working P4Pro/+ for a few bucks more.  
Labroids, Good to see your P4Pro+ is working big guy
(the post is hyperbole folks)

Definitely, all Phantom 4 Pro issues should have been solved with the latest firmware! This is why immediately after the firmware update, DJI announced the Phantom 4 Advanced! Because, otherwise, a serious  company wouldn't offer another drone if the current one still does not perform as it was supposed to do.
In that respect, we can ignore the 150 $ or € difference in price and we can buy the Phantom 4 Pro, which has side and rear sensors and 5.4GHz option!

I'm waiting for my Phantom 4 Pro Plus to get back from the shop so we shall see about the + versions too.  I like your theory @kykphantom.  Hopefully they did crack the plus versions horizon and high frame rate / video transmission issues (I also had a bricked on board m-sd card reader and no monitor playback).   If it comes back in tact and working I'll be psyched (might even buy a P4A).

It has a new flight controller and is lighter than the original Phantom 4, also P mode is faster (new controller). From what I have been able to gather from forums and the DJI forum folk, the Mavic and the P4P and P4A all have the same flight controller.

That will probably never come:

Farewell Phantom 4
With the announcement of the  Phantom 4 Advanced, the original  Phantom 4 model
will be discontinued on April 30, 2017. DJI will  continue to provide after sales support
to Phantom 4 customers and their  aircraft will still be able to be flown using the DJI GO 4 app.
