Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 16 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • Good build quality and design - significantly improved over the Moto G4

  • Ergonomic, compact, extremely comfortable to hold - great for single handed operation - which is somewhat of a rarity these days

  • Decent display - it's not the most vibrant, but color accuracy is good, and sunlight legibility is decent too

  • Simple, stock-like Android interface, with integrated Google Assistant, along with the regular Moto add-ons like gestures, and the "Always On" display

  • The fingerprint sensor also incorporates "one-button navigation" allowing you to replace the on-screen navigation buttons with gestures on the fingerprint sensor, thus giving you more display real estate

  • Decent everyday performance - it's mostly a smooth run, with no hiccups - also handles games well

  • Decent battery life - should last you the day with moderate use - though it's not as good as many of its top competitors

What we didn't

  • Lacklustre speaker - lacks bass and volume

  • Average camera - in well lit conditions, the camera can do a decent job, but reduce the light, and you start losing details fast

  • Tends to heat up a bit when pushed in terms of performance

  • 16GB storage will get limiting if you like downloading a lot of apps
