Motorola Moto G200 5G in review: 5G smartphone offers 144 Hz and a Snapdragon 888+ at a fair price

Inexpensive flagship killer without PWM? On paper, the Moto G200 5G looks quite promising. On top of a fast 144-Hz panel, UFS 3.1 storage, LPDDR5 RAM and a flagship SoC, the Moto G200 has a built-in 108-MP triple cam and is powered by a 5,000 mAh battery. But once again there is an area, in which Motorola is lacking...

The Moto G200 5G is Motorola's newest flagship model of the Moto G series, equipped with the Snapdragon 888+. The manufacturer additionally equipped its powerful mid-range smartphone with the 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and either 128 GB or 256 GB internal UFS 3.1 storage at an MSRP of 450 Euros (~509 USD). The bigger storage space is not (yet) available in Europe, though.

The device is being topped off with its LCD panel measuring 6.8 inches and reaches a frame rate of 144 Hz. The powerful Qualcomm SoC may be of interest to gaming enthusiasts. On the back there is a 108-MP main camera supporting 8k video recordings.

The Moto G200 5G weighs 202 grams (~0,45 lbs) and comes in two colors. The satin, matte finish of the stellar blue conceals fingerprints and displays our test sample in a mix of blues and purples. Both the back and the frame are made out of plastic, which is very noticeable. Generally, the workmanship of the Moto G200 5G isn't bad, although it is safe to say that other mid-range representatives, such as the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G with its glass case, leave a more high-quality impression.

The IP52 certified Motorola smartphone has a flat IPS display, equipped with a 'chin' that is just a bit too large for the price range. But the competitors in the upper mid-range can't shine with a much better display to body ratio, either. The Moto smartphone's physical keys have a very crisp actuation point. Furthermore, the keys are firm in their frames and therefore barely moving. As is typical for other Motorola models, the Moto G200 5G has a dedicated key for the google assistant.

Connectivity - Moto G200 5G with Ready For

Similar to the flagship Edge-20-series, the Motorola mid-range also supports the on-site Ready-For platform. Thanks to the Ready-For-PC functionality, the Moto G200 5G is able to depict apps and PC data on a bigger screen - the one-time installation of a special PC software is necessary in order to use this feature. In the wireless category, the Moto G20 supports Miracast, and when connected to a homenetwork, there is the option of using special desktop mode or you can even use the Moto smartphone as a remote.

Users can watch HD video content on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and other video streaming services without problems, since a Widevine L1 certification is available. The Camera2 API level 3 of the Moto G200 5G is available, too.

Our test sample measures a capacity of 128 GB of internal UFS storage, whereas around 20 GB are used by the operating system. There is no microSD slot. External storage devices or input devices can be connected via an OTG adapter. The USB-C port supports USB 3.1 speeds.

Software - Motorola Smartphone with Android 11

My UX is a clean and optimized user interface and complements Google's Android. During the tests, we used the preinstalled Android 11 with the security patches from December 2021 at the time of this review. The manufacturer is planning updates for the next two years, so until November 2023.

As a user, you get the typical 'Moto experience' including bundled options for individualized font, colors, symbols and fingerprint sensor animations. In addition to the Ready For functionality, the MyUX UI offers security features for Motorola hardware and software called ThinkShield for Mobile. It is a platform based on the brand ThinkShield by Lenovo that is supposed to offer additional protection against malware, phishing and cyber attacks.

Users will have to pass on a real always-on display for notifications. Motorola equips its mid-range smartphone with the familiar display preview function, where messages are displayed when lifting the phone. The manufacturer, however, does not offer an option to permanently leave the display turned on.

Communication and GNSS - Motorola 5G Smartphone

The Moto G200 5G supports Wi-Fi 6 home networks and the fast ax standard with the option to use the 6-GHz band, causing fast transfer rates during our measurements. The transfer rates in combination with our reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12 are consistent in receiving and sending data.

When it comes to communication, Bluetooth 5.2, Dual SIM and 5G are on board, as well as NFC for near field communication. On top of the 5G standard, the mid-range smartphone supports a total of 23 LTE bands - all of the LTE bands that are relevant to German users, including band 28, are covered. The Moto smartphone is also suitable for use in the USA.

When it comes to geolocation, the Moto G200 5G supports major satellite systems such as GPS (L1, L5), GLONASS and Galileo. In order to determine the precision of the GPS, we take our test device with us on a short trip and compare it to the Garmin Venu 2. At the end of our 4-km (~2.5 miles) test track, the difference between the smartphone's GPS module and our Garmin Venu 2 reference device amounts to about 180 meters (~590 ft).

Geolocation could be better overall. Parts of the recorded track clearly deviate from the chosen route. Despite the small inaccuracies in the recorded track, the Moto smartphone is suitable for navigation purposes, although the signal strength (SNR of 29.5) is nothing to write home about.

Motorola Moto G200 5G in review

We like the call quality during our test. VoLTE and VoWiFi are also on board. Voices are captured clearly, which was also confirmed by our test person on the other end. The quality of video calls via Skype and the speakers is satisfying thanks to the dual microphones.

The Moto smartphone's SAR measurements were pretty high with 0.94 W/kg (head) and 1.48 W/kg (body).

Cameras - Motorola Smartphone with a Triple Cam

Photo mode

While the 16 MP front-facing camera takes solid selfies for social media content, the degree of sharpness could have been higher. On top of that, the brightening is everything but ideal.

Similarly to the 11T-series Xiaomi, Motorola focuses on the main camera, whereas the ultra-wide-angle camera isn't convincing. The resolution of 8 MP is pretty small, the level of detail isn't great and the quality could be better. Neither the ultra-wide-angle camera, nor the main camera has optical image stabilization.

Motorola uses Samsung's 108-MP camera sensor (S5KHM2) for the Moto G200 5G as well as for the Edge 20 Pro, which explains our very similar test image results. The sensor measuring 1/1.52 inches catches motives in a natural way, barely overexposes the images post production and they are therefore depicted pretty smoothly. The analysis with the ColorChecker passport reveals deviations that are relatively high compared to actual reference colors.

In order to catch lots of light despite the small pixels during use in the dark, the ultra pixel binning technology calculates huge pixels out of respectively 9 single pixels. The 'super pixel' leads to a higher sensitivity when the lighting is bad, which results in a solid brightening in the dark with the Moto G200 5G. However, the suffering sharpness and the missing OIS don't make the mid-range smartphone a low light specialist.

The main camera of the Moto smartphone can take 8k videos at 30 fps. Users who want higher frame rates still need to make do with the Ultra-HD resolution (up to 60 FPS). When running a video, users can switch between cameras, but the wide-angle optics are limited to FHD. Also, the quality drops significantly, especially when used in bad lighting.

The box contains the 33-watt TurboPower charger, protective cover, charger, USB-C cable, quick start guide and SIM toolkit. Users can exclusively purchase a compatible headset via the online shop of the manufacturer.

The manufacturer offers a 2-year standard warranty for the Moto G200 5G, although users have the option to cover mechanical deficiencies with the extended insurance for another 12 months.

The optional accidental damage protection (94,99 Euros/ 108 USD for two years) offers additional coverage for material damage or damage through liquids.

Input Devices & Handling - Moto G200 5G Runs Buttery Smooth

The very fast refresh rate of 144 Hz is the reason for the pleasantly smooth depiction of screen change or scrolling on websites. Inputs on the 6.8-inch IPS display respond precisely right up to the corners of the touchscreen.

The integrated fingerprint sensor in the power button unlocks the Moto G200 5G reliably and fast. The time span it takes the display to turn on from standby mode is fairly quick as well. The FaceUnlock functionality of the front camera, which is based on simple 2D facial recognition, works in everyday life, but is unreliable compared to other devices.

Slight shadows around the hole-punch camera

The 6.8-inch Full HD+ Max Vision display has a resolution of 1080 x 2460 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:9.
This results in a pixel density of a solid 396 PPI. The mid-range smartphone automatically adapts the frame rate to the depicted content and regulates it between 48 and 144 Hz, just like the manufacturer's flagships.

Although the panel has HDR10 certification, we could measure a maximum luminance of only 512 cd/m². Even our APL50 test result with 520 cd/m² barely changes the relatively small brightness rate for HDR content. On top of that, the brightness distribution is not very even, which is especially visible in the hole-punch area, where slight shadows are apparent.

We measured PWM fluctuations (pulse-width modulation) on the very low brightness, but the frequency was so high, it shouldn't be a problem for users. At higher brightness levels these fluctuations disappear.

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 89290 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 89290 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 89290 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

In the display settings users can adapt the color temperature of the Moto G200 5G and also choose between the two screen modes 'saturated' and 'natural'.
The latter offers the exact calibration and targets the sRGB color space, which is mostly covered, according to our analysis with the CalMAN software. The grayscales show a deltaE of 3.7 and therefore reveal a significant difference to the ideal range in already very few color deviations. In terms of colors, with a deltaE of 3.4, the Moto G200 5G retains a solid level for a smartphone available at 450 Euros (~509 USD).

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
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17 ms rise
↘ 11 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 62 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
32 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 29 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.8 ms).

Outdoors, the Motorola smartphone makes a solid impression. Even in sunlight, the display is still recognizable, although the visibility of the displayed content deteriorates with more sunlight. As soon as reflections come into play, the Moto smartphone's LCD reaches its limits.

The viewing angles of the Moto G200 5G are mostly stable, though the panel's perceived brightness decreases significantly.

Performance - Motorola Smartphone with a Qualcomm SoC

The CPU-side of Snapdragon 888+ consists of a very fast, built-in 'Prime Core' that reaches up to 3 GHz and is based on the ARM Cortex-X1 architecture. Additionally, there are three fast Cortex-A78 based performance cores (2.42 GHz), as well as four ARM Cortex-A55 cores with clock rates of up to 1.8 GHz. The Adreno 660 is used as a graphics unit.

The Motorola smartphone is first place compared to mid-range competitors in our benchmark results. The Snapdragon 888+ doesn't reach its full potential, which is evident from the OnePlus 9 Pro with a Snapdragon 888 surpassing the Moto G200 5G in many CPU tests. Furthermore, we observed a noticeable decrease of the CPU performance at on- and especially off-screen results. This can cause problems during long HFR Gaming sessions (see paragraph 'Gaming').
On a daily basis, the Moto smartphone runs fairly smooth and with barely any delays. The system performance is superb and the loading time of applications really short. This is also ensured by the fast read and write speeds of the UFS storage. The Snapdragon 888+ (theoretically) supports the full bandwidth of the 3.1 standard, but this range can't be reached by the Moto smartphone.

Gaming - Limiting Gaming Capabilities

The technical requirements predestine the Moto G200 5G for Android games. On paper, the fast SoC and the big and fast 144-Hz display promise lots of gaming fun, but the gaming performance we tested with our partner GameBench, leaves something to be desired.

PUBG Mobile can be played in HD with 60 FPS at high details, while nothing stutters. Our second test game Armajet on the other hand, reveals thermically based crashes in performance. The arena shooter (theoretically) supports the full 144 FPS, but the Moto G200 5G can only reach to up to 85 FPS. In addition, the frame rate visibly decreases throughout the gaming session and settles shortly after at only 40 to 60 FPS, which is rather sparse considering the technical specifications of the mid-range smartphone.

Emissions - Moto G200 5G Does Not Remain Cool

Temperature

The fairly high heat development of the Moto's smartphone case relatively uneven. Our measured maximum temperatures are still within limits. Although there is a noticeable reduce of the Qualcomm SoC performance due to the heat development inside of the Moto G200 5G.

The Wild Life stress tests show that with higher workload, the performance drops about 20 %, which is quite a solid score for a Snapdragon 888+ Smartphone. The Moto G200 5G performance starts decreasing pretty quickly, though.

Speaker

The Motorola smartphone offers one single speaker, which is a bit quiet compared to its stereo competition - we measured a maximum volume level of only 81 dB. The Moto G200 5G supports the Dolby Atmos technology for a better sound depth and 3D sound. Furthermore, the Qualcomm Snapdragon Sound should offer more reliable options for wireless connection.

Our measurements show solid results for the mid and high frequencies. Bass is not present. For everyday use, videos and movies, the quality of the speakers is definitely sufficient, but nothing special for this price range.

Users who are looking for better sound can resort to wired or wireless speakers. There is the USB port, the Bluetooth 5.2 standard with AAC, aptX HD and aptX adaptive as well as LDAC.
