Not everyone needs a flagship phone, and these days you don̵
The $ 169 Moto G Play doesn’t give or cost much
To start things off at the most affordable level, the Moto G Play has a 6.5-inch 720p display and a 5,000 mAh battery. It won’t win any speed prizes with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor, but that should be enough to check email and your social networks. Motorola says the phone has a 13-megapixel dual-camera system, but you shouldn’t expect world-class photos from a $ 169 phone.
You can make video calls with the 5-megapixel front camera with teardrop-shaped camera and the phone comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. With a MicroSD slot you can add more storage space if you need it.
The $ 199 Moto G Power stays fresh with minor updates
Following on from last year’s Moto G Power; the latest model includes some minor updates to keep the phone up to date. For just under $ 200 you get a Snapdragon 662 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, and a 6.6-inch 720p LCD screen. Spend $ 50 more and you can ramp up to 4 GB of Ram and 64 GB of storage. Motorola promises that the included 5000 mAh battery will give you three days of recharge.
You also get better photos thanks to a 48 megapixel triple camera system. Unlocking your phone should also be easy, thanks to the side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
The $ 299 Moto G stylus still comes with a stylus and 4G LTE
Like the Moto G Power, the $ 299 Moto G Stylus sees marginal upgrades over last year’s model. This time, a Snapdragon 678 processor powers the phone, along with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. And of course you can expand that with a MicroSD card. The 6.8-inch LCD screen goes up to 1080p on this model, and you get a 48-megapixel quad camera system. What you don’t get is NFC or a massive battery, only 4,000 mAh.
Like the Moto G Power, this update includes a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. And as the name suggests, it comes with a stylus. Not an expensive wireless communicating stylus, mind you, just a regular click-action stylus. It does fit into the bottom of the phone if you don’t need it, so at least you can keep it.
The $ 399 Motorola One 5G Ace takes over the Pixel 4a
Of all the phones announced today, the Motorola One 5G Ace is arguably the most exciting. That’s because it is acquiring Google’s Pixel 4a, one of the most affordable phones you can buy. For $ 399 you get a Snapdragon 750G from Qualcomm, which is good enough to put you on 5G. You also get a 6.7-inch 1080p LCD screen, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and a 5000 mAh battery.
The Motorola One 5G is the only one announced today with NFC, and it uses a 48-megpaixel triple camera system that the company promises to manage photos in low light and at night.
All four cameras will go on sale at Amazon, Motorola and Best Buy on January 14, with pre-sales starting January 8.
