Motorola Moto G22 review - Inexpensive budget smartphone with a serious faux pas

Favorable entry with Android 12. The Moto G22 primarily scores with its price. NFC, a 50 MP camera, and a 90 Hz panel are on board for less than 170 Euros (~$180). Motorola also focuses on the latest Android with improved data protection features in its entry-level phone. Does the calculation work out despite some shortcomings?

Test Motorola Moto G22

With the Moto G22 Motorola wants to address the price-conscious buyer group, since the RRP of the low-budget phone with 4 GB working memory is just 169 Euros (~$179). However, some compromises have to be made in the Moto G22's configuration, such as the underpowered Mediatek SoC, have to be accepted. On the other hand, one of the highlights might be the quad-camera including a 50-megapixel main camera.

The 185-gram (~6.5 oz) Moto smartphone also has a 5,000 mAh capacity battery, which can be charged with up to 15 watts via USB-C. Motorola also installs a 6.5-inch LCD with a frame rate of 90 Hz in its entry-level smartphone, but the resolution is only 1,600 x 720 pixels.

The front of the Moto G22 is made of scratch-resistant display glass that blends flat into the plastic frame. Due to the pronounced chin, it is clear that the Moto phone is a comparatively inexpensive smartphone. However, thanks to the punch-hole cutout, the display takes up a large part of the front with over 84 percent.

A thermoplastic material called PMMA is used on the back. The material feels appealing and fingerprints are well concealed. Besides a black variant, there are Iceberg Blue and Pearl White color options. Due to the flat back, we are only partially convinced by the ergonomics due to the angular design.

The Moto G22 does not have an IP certification, but the manufacturer advertises a water-repellent design, which should provide protection against moderate contact with water, such as accidentally spilled drinks, water splashes or light rain. However, the Motorola phone should not be immersed in water or other liquids.

Equipment - Motorola smartphone with 3.5 mm jack

The internal eMMC storage in the Moto G22 has a capacity of only 64 GB. The storage available to the user is limited to 52 GB due to the preinstalled software, such as the operating system or apps. However, it is possible to expand the dual-SIM smartphone's storage with a microSD card. Peripheral devices, such as USB sticks, can also be connected via the installed USB port using an OTG adapter. The USB Type-C port, which supports the USB 2.0 standard, is also used to charge the 5,000 mAh battery.

The entry-level phone's other equipment list includes a status LED for notifications and a 3.5 mm jack. Video content on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and other video streaming services cannot be watched in HD quality with the Moto G22 since the certification process for Widevine L1 has not been passed. Wireless transmission of display content on an external monitor via Miracast is supported.

Software - Motorola Smartphone with Android 12

Motorola offers a well-structured system interface with its MyUX interface that complements Google's Android in version 12. The familiar Moto Experiences are on board as well as numerous customization options for adjusting fonts or colors and fingerprint sensor animations. The Moto G22 does not offer the in-house Ready For functionality.

The security patches on the entry-level test device are up to date from February 2022. According to Motorola Germany, updates are available for the first 2 years, i.e. until 2024, and an upgrade to Android 13. The hardware and software security features called ThinkShield for Mobile are also implemented, so there is supposed to be a special protection against malware, phishing and network attacks.

Communication and GNSS - Moto G22 with NFC

In terms of communication modules, Motorola relies on Bluetooth version 5.0 and an NFC chip for contactless payment via Google Pay. The integrated Wi-Fi module supports the IEEE 802.11 standard a/b/g/n/ac. In combination with our Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 reference router, the Moto G22 achieves transfer rates of over 300 Mbps, which is good considering the price range.

However, the use of the mobile Internet has to accept some drawbacks. The installed cellular modem only covers 9 LTE frequencies. The LTE band 28 used in this country is not supported. Access to the 5G network is not possible with the Helio G37 and using the Moto G22 while traveling can be problematic due to the limited frequency diversity.

In order to assess the positioning accuracy of Motorola's phone in practice, we record a route with the Garmin Venu 2 for comparison purposes. Although there are only 10 meters (~33 feet) between the Moto G22 and the Garmin smartwatch at the end of the 2.5-kilometer (~1.6 mile) test track, the positioning could still be a bit more accurate. Deviations of the entry-level smartphone are clearly visible in the detailed GPS record, but navigation tasks should still be possible with the Moto G22.

The entry-level smartphone determines the position via the main satellite systems: GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and BeiDou. The signal strength is not very pronounced with an SNR value of 24.3.

Phone features and voice quality - Motorola phone with dual SIM

Test Motorola Moto G22
Test Motorola Moto G22

The Moto phone has room for two nano-SIM cards. However, microSD cards can still be used as memory expansion when using the dual-SIM function. The voice quality via the mobile network is okay. However, noise is very present in loud surroundings, also because only one microphone has been installed, which might make effective noise suppression difficult.

Video calls via Skype using the built-in front-facing camera worked without problems in the test. The call quality via the installed mono speaker is on a good level.

Cameras - Motorola smartphone with 50 MP

The front-facing camera, which has been placed in a central punch-hole recess, has a resolution of 16 MP. The results are respectable for an entry-level phone. Selfie shots with the Moto G22 have a solid basic sharpness, and the exposure and blur in portrait mode look coherent, even though a bright background is displayed burned out.

Motorola advertises the 50 MP sensor of the main camera as one of the highlights. It combines four 0.64 micrometer small pixels into one large tetrapixel and thus provides a photo resolution of 12.5 MP. The Samsung ISOCELL JN1 has a sensor size of 1/2.76 inch and works together with an open aperture of f/1.8 in the Moto G22.

Photos with the 50 MP sensor score with good dynamics and usable sharpness. However, the subjects are comparatively soft-focused with the entry-level phone. In low light, the image sharpness is on a very low level despite pixel binning. What Motorola has optimized very well - apart from the white balance - is the color matching. Images look contrasty, but not oversaturated. The analysis with the ColorChecker Passport also reveals relatively low deviations compared to the actual reference colors.

Besides the main camera, the Motorola phone has an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2 MP lens for macro shots and a 2 MP depth sensor. The ultra-wide-angle lens with a wide field of view of 118° is certainly usable for social media content, but the image quality is not sufficient for more. The wide-angle shots have a low dynamic range, artifacts and a pronounced blurriness, not only in the peripheral areas.

Video recordings with the ultra-wide-angle lens are limited to a maximum of FullHD quality. With the 50 MP sensor, moving images can also only be recorded in 1080p at 30 fps. It is not possible to switch between the two optics during a running video recording.

Accessories and warranty - Moto G22 with power adapter

10 watt power supply of the Moto G22
10 watt power supply of the Moto G22

The Moto G22 comes with a modular 10-watt power supply and a USB cable. Motorola does not include a protective case for its entry-level phone.

The Warranty is 24 months after the purchase date. The Moto smartphone is insured against mechanical failures for another 12 months with an optionally extendable insurance cover for about 20 Euros (~$21).

Input devices & operation - Motorola cell phone with FaceUnlock

The Moto G22 has a capacitive touchscreen that recognizes up to four touches simultaneously. The inputs are implemented precisely. The refresh rate of 90 Hz makes scrolling a bit smoother than with a native 60 Hz panel, but the system is slowed down by the slow SoC, so the advantage of the higher refresh rate is not fully effective.

A fingerprint sensor, which is located in the power button, ensures security. The recognition rate is appealing, but it takes a long time until the Moto G22 is brought out of standby. Face recognition via the front-facing camera also unlocks the entry-level phone reliably, but the 2D method is quite insecure.

Display - Moto G22 with 90 Hz

Sub-pixel representation
Sub-pixel representation

The LCD screen of the Moto G22 measures 6.5 inches diagonally and offers a HD+ resolution in a 20:9 format, which corresponds to 1,600 x 720 pixels. The IPS panel's native resolution results in a pixel density of less than 300 ppi, so content is relatively blurry. The competition with 1080p screens offers a visibly better image sharpness.

When displaying a pure white surface, the liquid crystal display achieves a solid brightness of 451 cd/m² with an activated ambient light sensor for controlling the display brightness. In addition, we check the maximum brightness of the Moto G22 with an evenly distributed share of dark and bright areas (APL50) in the test. Here, we can determine a similar luminance of 473 cd/m². Fortunately, PWM is not used.

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 not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21940 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel of the Moto G22 achieves a black value of 0.5 cd/m² in our display measurements, which is a bit much even for an LC display in this price range. The contrast ratio is thus clearly below the 1:1000 mark and black areas have a slight gray haze.

The color analysis of the display is carried out with the help of a photospectrometer and the CalMAN software. The deviations in the color (5.8) and grayscale (5.0) representation are relatively high in the color profile standard. The color temperature of the display is also calibrated too cool - a slightly bluish color cast is visible in practice.

Outdoors, the Moto smartphone leaves a satisfactory impression - at least under cloudy skies. The IPS panel's brightness ensures solid readability outdoors, but reflections should be avoided. Contents are hardly visible in direct sunlight.

The viewing angles of the display are on a good level during normal viewing. However, the brightness drop is very noticeable when the panel is tilted slightly.

Performance - Motorola cell phone with MediaTek SoC

The Moto G22 is equipped with a Helio G37, a 12 nm SoC from MediaTek. The processor has 8 Cortex-A53 cores and supports more CPUs than the Helio G35 Panels with 90 Hz. The Helio G series from the Taiwanese manufacturer is supposed to appeal to gamers in particular the PowerVR GE8320 from 2014, but users should not expect too much from it.

In combination with 4 GB LPDDR4X RAM, the Helio G37 in Motorola's phone provides a very mediocre system performance. Animations do not really look smooth despite the 90 Hz panel, and system hangs characterize the user experience. The performance drops very sharply during multitasking tasks, so the Moto G22 often cannot be used for minutes. Although the working memory is actually solid, complex applications, especially games, are very quickly deleted from the buffer.

The Moto smartphone is at the end of our benchmark field. In the CPU benchmarks, the Moto G22 together with the Nokia G21 where even the Unisoc Tiger T606 scores better than the Helio G37.

In terms of storage speed, the eMMC storage of the Moto G22 does not offer a good performance. Especially when reading and writing small data blocks, the AndroBench scores are very low. These results also match the very long loading times in apps or games.

Games - Moto G22 manages 30 fps

Users who want to play one or two games from the Play Store on their smartphone should definitely not go for the Moto G22. Apart from the very long loading times, the measured FPS rates are on a level that does not allow gaming fun despite low graphics details.

Using the app from GameBench we determine our frame rates for PUBG Mobile and Armajet. Slightly more complex games, such as Asphalt 9 Legends, can be installed but are not playable. League of Legends: Wild Rift also overtaxes the Moto G22, so our GameBench application was removed from the cache - but we can also observe massive frame rate drops in this game.

The graphics performance of the PowerVR GE8320 only allows playing the shooter PUBG Mobile at low details in our gaming test, even HD is not available. However, the rendering is already very jerky in "Smooth". The full 90 Hz of the IPS panel are not available in Armajet either, we do not get beyond the 30 fps limit.

Emissions - Motorola Moto G22 stays cool

Temperature

3DMark is partially incompatible with the Moto G22

The casing of the Moto G22 hardly warms up even under permanent load and stays relatively cool. Due to the incompatibility of the 3DMark benchmark, we cannot examine the consistency of the performance development in the stress tests as usual. The battery test of GFXBench also always aborts during the measurement.

Speaker

Motorola's smartphone only has one speaker on the bottom, but it is sufficiently loud and powerful with a maximum of 87 dB(A). However, the sound quality is less good and at most suitable for playing short videos.

The speaker's reproduction tends to be characterized by medium sound sequences, which are not reproduced very linearly. Basses are not present in the sound image and trebles are also underrepresented.

Fortunately, the Moto G22 has an audio jack so that the favorite headphones can be connected. Users who want to use TWS or Bluetooth speakers can enjoy the codecs aptX, aptXHD, AAC and LDAC in addition to SBC.

Battery life - Moto G22 with 5,000 mAh

Energy consumption

The Moto phone is charged with a maximum of 15 watts via TurboPower technology. The power supply is provided by a 5,000 mAh strong battery, which gets energy back via the included 10 W power supply unit. Thus, the Moto G22 is fully recharged in about 2.5 hours.

The power consumption is quite low thanks to the low-performance hardware. However, we still see optimization potential for an HD+ panel with an energy consumption of over 1 watt. And also compared to smartphones with the Helio G35 the power consumption is quite high under load.
