Motorola has recently launched the most affordable 5G smartphone in India, Moto g 5G on November 30, 2020. This smartphone has got quite promising specifications like Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G, 6.7″ FHD+ HDR10 display, 48 MP Primary Camera, and most importantly 5G support.
To date, Oneplus Nord was the only 5G-ready smartphone under the 30K range but now moto g 5G comes with better performance, adequate FHD+ HDR10 display, and most importantly much more practical pricing.
The main & basic advantage of Motorola smartphones is a pure Android experience. Simply, there is no bloatware or ads. Generally, these phones remain smoother for a longer time. Also, stock android is proven easier to use and understand for beginners, especially for our parents or grandparents. Even if you miss any basic essential applications especially call recorder, just download from the Google Play store as per your need.
Before we discuss our verdict, pros, and cons, let’s see the technical specification, box contents, and design of the new moto g 5G.

To be very honest, this smartphone, moto g 5G surpassed my expectation in terms of specifications, especially Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G (5G) with Adreno 619 is undoubtedly a better performer than SD 765G and HDR10 certified LTPS FHD+ display will definitely enhance your viewing experience. The main highlight of the phone is its 5G capability, to my surprise, this is the first-ever non-flagship 5G-ready smartphones which supports almost every possible 5G bands/frequency. Moto g 5G even got Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi, FM radio, and 20W Turbo fast charging support. With a 48 MP f/1.7 primary camera, this phone supposed be capture sharp, detailed, and vivid images.
Obviously, moto g 5G also has a few cons. Firstly, Motorola should have provided an AMOLED panel, although the existing LTPS HDR10 certified is brilliant. Lastly, the single speaker is loud enough but the brand could have provided stereo dual-speaker support.
If you are a tech-savvy person, want to be up-to-date, or someone who generally uses a smartphone for 3-4 years, this moto g 5G could be an absolute choice for you. This smartphone will not only provide smooth daily operations or better gaming performance but also be futureproof for 5G connectivity. I would definitely recommend this moto g 5G smartphone to almost everyone, as of now it is the most value for money smartphone under 25K.
