After the Moto G Stylus’s unexpected success, Motorola was smart to release a follow-up this quickly. This time, the company has managed to double up on the model’s strengths and add some welcome upgrades, making for a formidable midranger. At the same price point of $299, this phone is a good value whether you want that stylus or not.
Last year’s Moto G Power was lauded for its supreme battery life and excellent value. This year, the model received a refresh, including a slightly lower price point and better cameras, but some disappointing specs, including a weaker processor compared to last year’s model, are a bit of a head scratcher. The phone still performs well for the price and offers great battery life, but the feeling that it’s a step back makes it difficult to wholeheartedly recommend.
Motorola’s new One 5G Ace is essentially a stripped-down version of the One 5G from last summer, and that’s not a bad thing given how solid that phone was. The new Ace model makes some smart trade-offs to make 5G more accessible, and it mostly succeeds, offering snappy performance, good cameras, great battery life, and a large, pleasing display for under $400. True, there are places where the budget cuts show, like the audio quality or lack of wireless charging and waterproofing, but this is still a fantastic and mostly futureproof value, another solid effort from Motorola.
Motorola’s mid-range advances in late 2020 began with the humble Moto G9 Play, but it’s the Moto G9 Plus that’s arguably its most intriguing new affordable device. At first glance, it has it all: a large display, a large battery, and a not-too-shabby mid-range chipset, as well as a multitude of versatile cameras. All of that has a pretty decent price tag attached to it: the Moto G9 Plus sells for less than $300 in the currently supported regions. Sounds great, but is everything just as good as it sounds on paper?
Motorola has a prominent presence in the entry-level and mid-range markets, where the variety of One and G-series devices can suit every taste and satisfy almost any need. True to this mantra, Motorola once again nailed it with the Moto G9 Play. The new device, which will be known as the Moto G9 in the US, is excellent value for money and covers all the essential elements of a noteworthy affordable phone: it has excellent battery life, big display, good camera, and most importantly, killer price.
