Motorola’s new cheap Android phone has a 120Hz screen with a whole lot of color in 2022
Most of the rest of the specs – while arguably less exciting – sound fairly decent as well. There’s a 5,000mAh battery with 30W charging, 5G, and a triple-lens rear camera, with a 50MP main sensor (sporting optical image stabilization), an 8MP ultrawide one, and a 2MP macro one.
There’s also a 16MP selfie camera, dual stereo speakers, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a mid-range Snapdragon 695 chipset. Plus there’s a microSD card slot and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Analysis: making sense of Motorola’s G series
You might be wondering where the Moto G82 5G fits into the wider Motorola G series, and the answer is between the Moto G100 and the Moto G60s.
On paper, both of these phones have worse screens, despite the Moto G100 costing more. However, that phone does have a faster chipset and likely better cameras (though slower 20W charging).
The Moto G60s, meanwhile, might also have better cameras – at the very least it’s got more megapixels to play with, and it has even faster 50W charging, despite costing less. But it’s less powerful too, and it has that slightly worse screen. It also doesn’t support 5G.
