Motorola Moto G 5G Review

Score: 81.5 / 100

Motorola Moto G 5G is a top-notch Android phone launched a few years ago, counting with a big size 6.7" screen, a high performance 2200 megahertz Octa-Core processing unit, and two cameras, a 48 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 16 mega-pixels front facing camera.

Motorola decided to build this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SM7225 system chip, including an extremely powerful Octa-Core processing unit ticking at 2200 MHz with a big 4 GB RAM. An amazing feature of this phone is its 64 GB big internal memory and an SD memory card expansion slot, more than enough to install tons of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without worrying about how much storage capacity is left.

This time, it seems like Motorola forgot about weight optimization in this 7.48 ounces device. This phone has an amazing design, with a thickness of just 0.39". The is a compact phone, taking into consideration it presents a 6.7" display and it only has 6.54" long. This phone body design uses Plastic and Plastic . The is offerred in two different color options, frosted silver and volcanic grey.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 48 MP back-facing camera and a 16 megapixels front-facing camera. It is capable of shooting videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 30 frames per second, and Full HD 1920x1080 slow motion videos up to 60 frames per second.

This cellphone includes a spectacular 6.7 inches display with a 1080 x 2400 resolution, which makes all images and videos look brightful and colorful.

This phone provides wifi capability (which can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 5G ultra fast connection type, LTE-A (4G) high bandwidth connectivity and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a lower speed 4G technology) and fast 3G data connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The uses a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

The also includes many interesting features as Fingerprint ID, NFC, Bluetooth (for communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories), GPS Geolocation and Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone packs an amazing 5000 mAh non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to lose capacity, whereas with this big battery you will probably discard this cellphone before that becomes an issue.

If you are looking for a work phone, you love taking photos, will use this cellphone mostly for social networks and internet browsing or need a phone for playing games, this device is the correct option for you. If you buy the you will also receive Headset, quick start guide, charger, SIM toolkit , USB-C cable and protective cover.
