Motorola Moto G 5G smartphone review

After having already taken a look at the Moto G 5G Plus, another relatively inexpensive 5G smartphone from Motorola is now going through our test course. Unlike the Plus model, the Moto G 5G is not based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 but rather on the somewhat more powerful Snapdragon 750G.

The Moto phone, which costs about 300 Euros (~$365) (MSRP), is equipped with 64 GB of flash storage and 4 GB of RAM in Germany. A 20-watt fast-charging function, a quad-camera setup, and a 6.7-inch IPS panel are also on board.

Case - Motorola smartphone with punch hole

The Moto G 5G is available with a plastic case in the colors "Volcanic Gray" and "Frosted Silver". The plastic shell on the back feels slightly "hollow" in the area of the fingerprint scanner, but otherwise, it looks sturdy. Due to the high-gloss look, grease smudges caused by fingers are very noticeable.

The punch hole on the front and the edges that are not too wide ensure that the Moto phone still fits relatively well in the user's hand despite the pronounced display diagonal of 6.7 inches; this allows the Moto G 5G to achieve a screen-to-body ratio of almost 86%, which is efficient for this price range.

The build quality is very appealing. The Moto G 5G also features protection against water, but it's certified according to the IP52 standard so that it's only protected against water splashes as a result.

Connectivity - Moto G 5G with 3.5 mm audio jack

DRM-protected content from streaming platforms can be viewed in HD resolution thanks to the Moto G 5G's DRM Widevine L1 certification. Wireless image transmission of display content via Miracast works without issues as well.

The internal UFS storage has a capacity of 64 GB, but the user only has about 48 GB available out of the box. If you need more storage space, you can expand it with an additional microSD card or use a second SIM card.

Peripheral devices can be connected via the USB-C port using an OTG adapter. The USB port uses the 2.0 standard for data transfer.

Software - Motorola smartphone with Android 10

At the time of our test, the Motorola phone is running Android 10 with security patches at the level of November 2020. According to the manufacturer, an update to the latest version 11 will be available soon.

The minimalistic MyUX user interface includes the familiar Moto Experiences, e.g., for activating the flashlight by shaking the hand or launching the camera by turning the wrist quickly.

Communication and GPS - Motorola phone with NFC

In terms of communication, the Moto G 5G is one of the best in this price range. Motorola supports Bluetooth 5.1 in its mid-range phone, and the built-in NFC chip also enables near-field communication. The dual-SIM smartphone uses the fast 5G standard for mobile Internet access and covers all LTE frequencies relevant for Germany - with 20 supported LTE bands, the Moto G 5G is even on par with a few flagship smartphones.

The integrated WLAN module supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standard and operates in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency ranges. In combination with our Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router, the Moto phone achieves good transfer rates for this price range at over 600 Mb/s.

The current position is determined via the GPS, Galileo, and GLONASS satellite systems as well as the satellite-based complementary system SBAS. Even indoors, the Moto G 5G can pinpoint its location without problems and very quickly.

To assess the positioning accuracy of our test device in practice, we track a route with a Garmin Edge 520 in parallel for comparison purposes. The GPS module's deviations in the route are small, and there is only a gap of 20 meters between the Motorola smartphone and the navigation device at the end of the four-kilometer test route.

Telephone and call quality - Moto G 5G with Wi-Fi calling

Motorola Moto G 5G smartphone review

We find the quality of the built-in microphones to be good, and the voices of the callers on the other end of the line are intelligible and clear. Video calls via Skype also work very well with the Motorola phone.

Like the Plus model, the Moto G 5G supports VoLTE, which allows voice calls via the 4G network, as well as Wi-Fi calling.

Cameras - Motorola smartphone with quad-camera setup

Photo taken with the front-facing camera in the Moto G 5G
Photo taken with the front-facing camera in the Moto G 5G

The Moto G 5G uses a 48 MP main camera that is complemented by an 8 MP ultra wide-angle lens as well as a 5 MP macro camera and a 2 MP ToF sensor. The main sensor of the rear-facing quad-camera setup has an aperture of f/1.7; it offers decent image sharpness in daylight and preserves quite a lot of details. However, low-light conditions reveal major deficits in sharpness and lighting, so that the subject is only visible to a limited extent.

The wide-angle lens delivers acceptable results but at a much lower level than the main camera. Pictures often look overexposed, and details get lost in blurriness.

The Moto G 5G only records videos at 60 fps in 1080p, while UHD videos can be captured at 30 fps. Furthermore, it's possible to switch between the main and wide-angle cameras while recording.

The selfie camera has a resolution of 16 MP and offers a solid photo quality for this price range that is perfectly suitable for multimedia content as well as snapshots. Colors look realistic, and softness is kept within limits.

Accessories and warranty - Moto G 5G with case

The Motorola Moto G 5G comes with a modular 20-watt power adapter, a headset, a quick-start guide and SIM toolkit, as well as a USB cable and a protective silicon case.

There's a 24-month warranty period starting from the date of purchase.

Input devices and handling - Motorola smartphone with face unlock

The capacitive multi-touch screen pleases in the test with its precise operation. Biometric identification using the face can be used to unlock the Moto G 5G, but this is unsafe due to this mechanism relying of the front-facing camera. In addition, an active fingerprint scanner is found on the case's back. The recognition rate is good; the user's fingerprint is recognized correctly in about 7 out of 10 attempts, but the sensor is not fast.

As is often the case with Motorola phones, the Moto G 5G is also equipped with a dedicated Google Assistant button, making Google's personal assistant available at the touch of a button.

Display - Moto G 5G with LC panel

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The 6.7-inch LC display of the Moto G 5G has a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels in a 20:9 format with a pixel density of 393 PPI. The MaxVision display of the Moto phone is certified for HDR10 content, but it only uses a refresh rate of 60 Hz in contrast to the Plus model.

The maximum peak brightness of 586 cd/m² that we measured isn't very high, and it's too low for the optimal reproduction of HDR content, but it's absolutely satisfactory for this price range. Even the realistic APL50 test (Average Picture Level) with evenly distributed bright and dark areas barely changes the maximum brightness, because it only reaches 601 cd/m².

The brightness distribution of 88% is quite heterogeneous, and shadows are clearly visible in the area of the front-facing camera. Furthermore, the use of PWM isn't optimal for an LTPS panel.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 217.4 Hz ≤ 25 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 217.4 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 25 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 217.4 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9728 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

The analysis performed with the spectrophotometer and the CalMAN software reveals low average Delta E deviations from the sRGB color space of 1.7 (colors) and 3 (grayscales), respectively, in the "Natural" display mode - the ideal range starts at values below 3. However, contrast isn't particularly pronounced due to the quite high black level. Mid-range models with an OLED panel like the Galaxy M31s, for example, have visible advantages here.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
24 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9 ms rise
↘ 15 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 36 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
42 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19 ms rise
↘ 23 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 55 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.5 ms).

The liquid crystal display performs well outdoors. Content can still be read reasonably well on the IPS panel in direct sunlight. Viewing angles are also at a decent level, but the OLED competition has the edge here as well thanks to the underlying technology.

Performance - Moto smartphone with Snapdragon SoC

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G is manufactured in an 8 nm process and integrates eight cores that are divided into two clusters. The performance cluster is based on two fast ARM Cortex-A77 cores (2.2 GHz), and the power-saving cluster contains six Cortex-A55 cores that run at up to 1.8 GHz. A Qualcomm Adreno 619 is used as the graphics card. The "G" in the name refers to special gaming drivers.

The benchmark results are at a similar level as those of its big sibling, the Moto G 5G Plus, which is equipped with the Snapdragon 765. From a performance perspective, the Moto G 5G chipset is in the front of the pack in our comparison.

The combination of the Qualcomm SoC and 4 GB of RAM ensures good system performance in everyday use. Thanks to the light UI, stutters only occur during multitasking or when processes are running in the background. The relatively fast UFS storage isn't a performance bottleneck either.

Speaker

Speaker test: Pink Noise
Speaker test: Pink Noise

The mid-range Motorola phone only has one speaker at the bottom. Sound quality is satisfactory for this price range, even though music playback is not very linear, and maximum volume only reaches a value of 82.5 dB. As expected, there's hardly any bass in the sound spectrum.

Users of the Moto G 5G don't have to do without a 3.5 mm audio jack. Those who prefer a wireless solution can implement it via Bluetooth 5.1. The supported codecs are aptX, aptX HD, AAC, and LDAC.

Verdict on the Motorola Moto G 5G - Clean Snapdragon phone

In review: Motorola Moto G 5G. Test device provided by Motorola Germany.
In review: Motorola Moto G 5G. Test device provided by Motorola Germany.

The Moto G 5G from Motorola is an interesting mid-range phone with one flaw - the display. The latter is by no means bad, but the LTPS panel of the Moto G 5G doesn't quite live up to what prospective buyers might expect from a 300-Euro (~$365) smartphone nowadays. The LC display is a bit low in contrast, uses PWM for brightness control, and has a native refresh rate of only 60 Hz coupled with the typical LCD weaknesses (shadows, screen bleeding, ...). Display fans will definitely find better panels in this price range.

Those who can live with a solid 60 Hz LCD display will find an appealing mid-range phone in the Moto G 5G, for which the price will surely move quickly in the direction of the Plus model (approximately 230 Euros (~$279)).

Regardless of that, the Motorola phone offers a nice overall package consisting of very good battery life, minimalistic software, fast WLAN and GPS, and strong communication capabilities (5G, a lot of LTE bands, NFC, ...). Compared with the Plus model, the Moto G 5G shows very decent performance and doesn't have the relatively inconsistent system speed of its big brother.

Price and availability

At the time of writing, listings of the Moto G 5G are scarce. Amazon has the international versions both in silver and gray. They both come with 6 GB of RAM as well as 128 GB of storage and are currently priced at $299.99.

My great passion has always been mobile technologies, especially smartphones. As a technology enthusiast, the half-life of my devices is not exactly high and the latest hardware is just good enough - manufacturer or operating system plays a minor role, the main thing is state-of-the-art
