Motorola lays the cards on the table
Motorola has launched the 11th generation of moto g phones, which includes 5 differently priced models.
The most expensive one is not that expensive, and it looks so good on paper that it’s scary
The flagship in the new generation of moto G phones is the g200 5G model and this is where all the reports begin, and for Motorola its success will also be a determinant of how well this company manages to combine quality with an attractive price.
And for Motorola its success will also be a determinant of how well this company manages to combine quality with an attractive price. You will surely compare it to the Motorola moto g100 tested here and it will not be a pointless comparison.
The main course, the moto G200 5G
The specification makes a solid impression, and the Snapdragon 888+ chipset plays the first fiddle here (remember about this plus at the end).
But it is not everything. It is enough to mention also about:
- 144 Hz LCD screen with HDR10 support (resolution 1080 x 2460 pixels and 6.8 inches diagonal),
- 8 GB RAM (here I would prefer more, because if you go crazy it is crazy), and 128 GB of UFS 3.1 memory,
- main camera 108 Mpix (the same as in moto edge 20 Pro) with 8K video function and slow-mo 960 fps, accompanied by 8 Mpix ultra wide angle camera with macro function, 2 Mpix camera for depth detection and 16 Mpix front camera,
- 5000 mAh battery with 33 W charging,
- support for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2,
- and USB 3.1 Type-C connector.
On paper, the entire specification looks very good, although not all parameters are tight.
On the other hand, the moto g200 5G offers some interesting things, including Dolby Atoms support, as well as Ready For support, i.e. the ability to use the phone as a central unit after connecting it to a monitor, keyboard and mouse.
For such applications, the high performance of the chipset can make a big difference.
At this point, the question can be asked, is the Snapdragon 888+ necessary in a phone such as the moto g200 5G? It’s best to answer this question yourself
It is slimmed down to a large extent in some respects, though not in the literal sense of the word, and enriched in other ways by the moto edge 20 Pro.
Also in terms of price which seems set to be very affordable.
Motorola no longer plays with bare Android, it equips its phones with whatever it can
Motorola in its time strongly promoted phones from the Android One series, but this idea did not gain much popularity, so we got the My UX overlay fairly quickly.
It is constantly being developed, in the moto g200 5G it is based on Android 11 (we can certainly expect an update to Android 12), and the number of native functions in the phone more and more proves that Motorola wants to take care of every element of the software itself.
That is why Think Shield for Mobile is strongly advertised here, i.e. a set of security features that make using the phone safe at every stage.
Think Shield for Mobile was introduced a year ago as an extension of the service platform for laptop owners. Now it goes not only to the g200 5G, but also to the simpler models.
And on top of that, the Moto G71 5G, Moto G51 5G, Moto G41 and Moto G31
In addition to the moto g200 5G, four other phones will go on sale. They will be:
- moto g71 5G – with Snapdragon 695 processor with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB built-in, OLED FHD + screen 6.4 inch and 50 Mpix main camera, 8 Mpix ultra wide-angle camera, 2 Mpix camera with depth of field and front camera 16 Mpix, the battery has 5000 mAh and supports TurboPower 30 (30W) charging,
- moto g51 5G – with Snapdragon 480 Pro processor with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB built-in, LCD FHD + 6.8 inch 120 Hz and 50 Mpix main camera, 8 Mpix ultra wide-angle camera, 2 Mpix depth-of-field camera and 13 Mpix front camera, the battery is 5000 mAh and supports 10W charging,
- moto g41 – with MediaTek G85 processor with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB built-in, OLED FHD + screen 6.4 inch and 48 Mpix main camera, 8 Mpix ultra wide angle camera, 2 Mpix camera with depth of field and 13 Mpix front camera, battery has 5000 mAh and supports TurboPower 30 (30W) charging,
- moto g31 – with MediaTek G85 processor with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB built-in, OLED FHD + screen 6.4 inches and 50 Mpix main camera, 8 Mpix ultra wide-angle camera, 2 Mpix camera with depth of field and 13 Mpix front camera, the battery has 5000 mAh and supports 10W charging.
- While the Motorola moto g200 5G has been certified for resistance to moisture and pollution at the IP52 level, in the case of other phones it is only mentioned that their construction is protected against the effects of moisture. In turn, the minijack port accompanied by USB 2.0 Type C was found in all other phones except the moto G200 5G. The latter makes up for it with a faster USB port.
