If you think you’ll ever use a digital pen on your next cheap phone or if you think the Moto G Stylus 5G (2022) is still not affordable enough after that. -Stylus version of essentially the same device can also be purchased for $50 less than usual.
It’s hard to call this new deal “unusual,” of course, as the Moto G 5G (2022) never made it to the full price of $399.99. Unveiled about a month ago alongside the aforementioned G Stylus 5G (2022), this particular 6.5-inch model is officially on sale today for $349.99 through the US website of Motorola and Amazon.
While it’s unclear if this launch promotion will end anytime soon, if you care about 5G speeds, data storage and battery life, it’s probably a good idea to hurry up and pull the trigger.
Yes, the Moto G 5G (2022) comes with the same hefty 5,000 mAh cell as its pen-wielding cousin, and thanks to a smaller and more fuel-efficient 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels (and support for a refresh rate of 90 Hz)), the actual staying power of this thing between charges could be even higher.
Motorola, for its part, advertises a battery life of up to 2 days, but something tells us you can easily increase that number to 3 days in the real world if you commit to it.
Somewhat curiously, the unlocked Moto G 5G (2022) is available in a single data-hoarder-friendly 256GB storage configuration, and yes, the phone also comes with a microSD card slot and an old-fashioned headphone jack.
There’s even more love for this new lead contender for the title of best budget phone out there when you also consider the preloaded Android 12 software, the moderately powerful MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor, the water-resistant IP52 housing (made entirely of plastic ) and the 50 MP main camera with Quad Pixel technology.
Admittedly, there are a few departments where Motorola has also taken a few turns, starting with the aforementioned screen resolution and also the 2MP secondary and tertiary image sensors on the back of the handset, as well as the slow 10W charging and a 6GB RAM. number that is not quite comparable to the 256 gigabytes of internal storage.
