If we had to take the official route, then it is impossible to experience the latest Android 10 features on any of the above-mentioned phones because most of the devices were launched back in 2015, except Moto G4 Play which came out in 2016.
Here comes into play the open-source nature of Android OS which allows such older devices to enjoy the latest Android OS features via custom ROMs.
