Reviews for the Motorola Moto G Play 2021

60% Motorola Moto G Play (2021) Review: A Fairly Good Phone For A Very Good Price
Source: The Verge English
If your relationship with technology is less complicated than those of us who spend hours each day of our precious time on this Earth staring at the little glowing screen in our hands, jumping between social media apps, and pushing our phone cameras to their limits, then you’ll get along fine with the Moto G Play. Just spare a thought for the rest of us, please?

Motorola Moto G Play (2021)
Source: PC Mag English
At $169.99, the Moto G Play is a solid choice for budget shoppers who are willing to make a few compromises. It offers admirable performance, a bright display, and incredible battery life. In return for the savings, however, you’ll have to live with disappointing cameras, and a dated version of Android for the time being. If you’re willing to spend a little more, we think the Moto G Power (2021) is probably a better bet.

75% Moto G Play (2021) review: The most impressive Moto G phone
Source: Neowin English
The Moto G Play is my favorite phone out of the 2021 Moto G family. I find it refreshing that it's not trying to scratch some specific itch like everything else that Motorola makes. With the Moto G Stylus, you're way better off with a OnePlus Nord N10 5G for $299, but the Moto G Stylus is a niche phone that gives you a pen. The Moto G Play is just a $169.99 phone and doesn't pretend to be anything else. Of course, this has the Nord N100 to contend with, which costs $10 more and has an extra gigabyte of RAM.

Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014.
