Perhaps the Motorola Moto G20 isn't a smartphone for everyone. But it could be interesting for those who don't have a lot of money to spend and still want a 90-Hz display and good performance.

You could complain to Motorola, that the Moto G20 is simply a less thought-out version of the Motorola Moto G10. However, our Motorola Moto G20 test proves that this isn't completely true:

Of course, with its simple back cover and extravagant colors (such as a bright pink), the Moto G20 may not look as elegant as the Moto G10 with its unusual back, but it does offer some quite unusual and interesting equipment features under the hood.

For example, the Motorola smartphone offers a 90-Hz display, which is quite unusual at a manufacturer price of about 150 Euros (~$177). Then there is also the SoC: Have you ever heard anything about the Unisoc Tiger T700 before? We are also testing that for the first time but must admit that it gave us a positive surprise: Although you have to live without Qualcomm features such as the aptX Bluetooth codecs, the performance values are really good and the WLAN connection is also surprisingly stable and fast.

But of course the Moto G20 also has some significant weaknesses: The camera quality is rather mediocre, but at least it offers many possibilities with three usable lenses. In addition, the display is dark, which is a negative characteristic that we already saw in other current Moto G smartphones. However, you just cannot expect a perfect smartphone in this price class.

As one of the few affordable mid-range smartphones with a 90-Hz display, the Moto G20 definitely offers a stand-out feature here.

If you would like to find out a bit more about this unusual smartphone, we recommend our detailed Motorola Moto G20 review that includes numerous measurements and extended evaluations.
