Motorola Moto G50

Description

There are a lot of little miracles Motorola was able to pull off without driving the G50's production costs through the roof, most notably equipping the aforementioned 6.5-inch "Max Vision" display with an unusually smooth 90Hz refresh rate (for this price bracket.) Make no mistake, though, this is not a high-end handset, and the good old fashioned waterdrop-style screen cutout, relatively large chin, and especially the modest 1600 x 720 pixel resolution make it pretty clear right off the bat what kind of device you're dealing with here. By no means a powerhouse, the Moto G50 packs a Snapdragon 480 SoC. The G50 5G hides a fairly humdrum 4 gigs of RAM and up to 128 gigs of storage space under its hood, as well as a sizable 5,000mAh battery unsurprisingly capable of keeping the lights on for up to "over two days" on a single charge. Both the low-res screen and low to mid-end processor of the Moto G50 have their own crucial contribution to this impressive battery endurance score, and yes, the phone will ship with a decently fast 10W power brick in the box as standard. The Moto G50 5G also comes with a microSD card slot and headphone jack, thus eclipsing many overpriced flagships in the... flexibility department while featuring a triple rear-facing camera system composed of a solid 48MP primary shooter with Quad Pixel technology, a 5MP macro sensor, and let's face it, a largely useless 2MP depth lens.
