Title
We do research on the human-robot interaction field (HRI). This robot is used as an instrument of research, more specifically to evaluate how people with little to no experience in robotics perform operating industrial robots.
Pro
The robot is reliable and easy to use (for an experienced engineer). Compared to our other brand in our laboratory (UR), I prefer this robot for most of our tasks. ABB's support is also great, and they usually help us when we need it (including maintenance and software-related questions).
Con
I believe there is much to be improved on the software side of this robot. The operating system is too simple, and its features are limited. I would also like to see more APIs from ABB, giving the robot's owner more freedom to do whatever they think is appropriate (following the safety standards). For an end-user (i.e., someone without experience in robotics), their block-based language is a great advance compared to RAPID, but not a final solution.

Title
Good cobot with a very good simulation environment
Pro
I like the fact that programs can be prepared offline (using robotstudio). Also, the new type of flexpendant which comes with Omnicore controller seems to offer good functionality. Configurability of the ASI (arm side interface) buttons. It has a lot of customizable safety-features (safemove collaborative). Good support from ABB with technical questions of new features.
Con
More of an optical aspect; the white surface of the robot.

Title
Easy to use robot (even with less experience)
Pro
The ABB FlexPendant with its new design offers an clear user interface. So you can navigate easy through the menu and you can quickly find the required application. The robot has also two connectors on the flange which can be used for power supply and IO communication.
Con
It would be practically, if the robot would also offer an internal pneumatic connection to the flange.
