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
  • The front has a notch-less display, that spans almost edge to edge, with a pop-up selfie camera mechanism (which is a rare sight in this price bracket)
  • There's a handy button dedicated to the Google Assistant
  • The rear-mounted fingerprint scanner is easy to reach and quick to unlock the smartphone
  • Crisp, large 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel - it is HDR10 certified, and there are three colour modes to choose from - the display is set to the Saturated colour mode by default, but you can switch to the Natural or Boosted options if you prefer
  • The lack of a notch helps make the screen appear immersive, and consuming content on the screen is a pleasure
  • True to Motorola style, you get clean and simple stock Android - mind you, it's not an Android One series phone though despite the 'One' moniker
  • The minor Motorola additions to stock Android are those that make the user experience even better - there are the Moto navigation gestures as well as the Moto Display, both of which make it easier to live with when compared to any other stock Android phone
  • Excellent performance powered by one of the best chipsets at this price, the Snapdragon 730G - there's enough grunt to handle day-to-day duties as well as heavy gaming with ease, PUBG Mobile defaults to the High preset
  • Very good quad-camera setup - there's the 64MP primary, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle, a 5MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor
  • In daylight, it manages good shots with ample detail, objects at a distance have decent detail - the phone also enables HDR automatically in bright scenes
  • The ultra-wide-angle camera offers a wider field-of-view at the cost of slightly lower details than the primary camera - it has a slightly different colour tone compared to the primary camera
  • Close-ups turns out quite well - the macro camera lets you get a lot closer to an object
  • Portrait mode lets you set the level of blur before you take a shot - edge detection is good, and the background is blurred properly
  • Night mode works surprisingly well, you've to hold the phone steady for slightly longer - but the output with Night mode is a lot brighter and have improved details in the shadows as well
  • Selfies taken with 16MP selfie shooter has good details - you can also enable portrait mode for selfies, and edge detection is decent - the selfie camera also supports Night mode
  • This single speaker is loud enough to fill a small room and adds to the video watching experience
  • Very good battery life with the 5000mAh battery - it will easily last you for 2 days on moderate use
  • The One Fusion Plus comes with an 18W TurboCharger in the box to help with fast charging
  • Motorola has got the specifications and the pricing right for the One Fusion Plus, making it very easy to recommend - the highlight is its clean, bloatware-free near-stock Android software which provides excellent user experience and the notch-less display is a cherry on top
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
  • Reaching the top while using the phone single-handed is somewhat difficult
  • Motorola One Fusion Plus feels chunky and heavy, as it is 9.6mm thick and weighs 210g
  • Motorola has positioned all the buttons on the right, which looks cluttered while the left side is bare
