2-minute Review [Positives]
  • The Moto G 5G is a handsome phone with a carbon fiber-esque texture at the back - the Moto G comes with impressive colour options (though, the glass-emulating glossy finish on the back feels cheap)
  • The front has a standard 2020 design with an almost edge-to-edge display, some thick bezels, and a modern punch-hole cutout for the camera
  • Dedicated Google Assistant button
  • Large 6.67 display IPS LCD display - it is a good display, the colours are bright, vibrant, and contrast is decent - consuming content on the display is enjoyable and there's added HDR10 compliance
  • Motorola continues to keep the software on it's phones clean, and simple - it's basically stock Android with a few useful Moto add-ons
  • Rapid, swift performance from the new Snapdragon 750G - the performance is very similar to the 765G and it handles everything you throw at it with easy, be it multi-tasking, or heavy games, all run smooth
  • Good triple camera setup at the back - a 48MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP macro camera
  • The primary sensor captures detailed and crisp pictures in daylight conditions - the photos look close to natural conditions
  • The ultra-wide camera gives you a distortion-free wide perspective of the scene with a bit lesser detail than the primary camera
  • The macro sensor turns out pretty impressive images especially during daylight conditions
  • In low-light, the phone shoots decent photos and there's dedicated night mode to boost the performance further
  • The portrait mode works well, the subject separation is good and the background is smoothly blurred
  • Selfies from the 16MP front camera look good with bright colors and good contrast - portrait mode in selfies works well, with proper cutouts and decent level of background blurring
  • Overall, while the Moto G 5G might be lacking in numbers, Motorola has optimised the cameras well enough to take on competition and they perform on par with the phone in this price range
  • Call quality over the earpiece and via headphones is great
  • Loudspeaker is also decent
  • Very good battery from the 5000 mAh cell - it could easily last a day and half with regular use
  • Decent fast charging from the 20W bundled charger in the box - it takes around 90 mins to charge the phone completely
  • The Moto G 5G is the cheapest 5G phone at the time of the launch in India - realistically, 5G is nothing more than a marketing gimmick at this time, it would take sufficient time for 5G to be available, there is currently no infrastructure - but you can consider it for future proofing
  • The Moto G 5G is an amazing phone in many ways - a clean Android experience with a fast and future-proof chip, ease of use, long battery life, and good cameras is a combination that many seek desperately at this price and it offers exactly that
  • However, if you want your phones to look a bit more trendy and you want faster charging, the Realme 7 Pro is a good option to consider

2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • No high refresh rate, while some competitor offer it
  • Though, phones like the Realme 7 Pro offer much faster charging in this price
