Motorola Moto G24 smartphone review – An attractive phone with a 90 Hz display

Pretty and affordable. You can get the Motorola Moto G24 for under US$200 without having to compromise on NFC, stereo speakers and an attractive case. On the flip side, you can't expect the best performance, but is the affordable phone still worth taking a look at?

Case and connectivity – Nice-looking plastic

The Moto G24 follows Motorola's design philosophy of this year by integrating the phone's camera module very seamlessly into the top left of its case: The material and color around the lenses are the same as the rest of the case and a slight curve embellishes the transition between the flat back and the slightly thicker camera module. The material used is plastic, which has a matte shimmer in all three color variants: black, light green and rosé.

The case is stable and can only be dented slightly in the middle. It isn't possible to twist the phone and it doesn't creak with pressure applied to it. The manufacturer has given the phone an IP52 certification, so it can withstand dust and splashes of water but shouldn't be submerged in any liquids. The Moto G24 is ever so slightly thinner and 5 grams lighter than the Moto G24 Power and in general, it is a compact phone.

Until a year ago, significantly less storage was standard within this price range; this year, 128 GB of flash storage is the norm. 8 GB of RAM should be sufficient for most applications. Fortunately, the Moto G24 also comes with NFC, so you can use mobile payment services or interact with other devices nearby. A 3.5 mm jack makes it possible to connect headphones and other audio devices.

Our test device can handle two SIM cards at once, whereas it doesn't feature eSIM support. In addition, there is a separate slot for a microSD card. The card reader worked quite fast during our test using the Angelbird V60 as a reference card.

Communication, software and operation – 3 years of updates guaranteed

The Moto G24 doesn't support 5G, so it is a pure LTE phone. The frequencies available on our test device are limited to the bare minimum to ensure operation in Central Europe, where this test was carried out. The same applies to models purchased in other parts of the world, which are limited to the common local frequencies. If you want to use your smartphone abroad to access the web, then you may have to look for a different phone.

Reception was quite good during our test using several random samples, but it couldn't come close to high-end smartphones.

In terms of Wi-Fi, the Moto G24 supports Wi-Fi 5 as the fastest standard and, as a result, achieves the expected 300 - 350 MBit/s that is usual for the price range. The transmissions ran at a fairly constant speed, even with the test repeated several times.

On the software side, Motorola has installed fairly pure Android 14 and has made additional functions accessible via the Moto app. This is clever, as additional features can be easily added via app updates. The latest security patches are from March 2024, so still reasonably up-to-date at the time of testing. Motorola has promised updates every two months until January 2027. It is not known whether the phone will see any further operating system versions.

The phone is DRM L1-certified, so you can stream content from most major providers in HD.

Its screen can display up to 90 images per second, meaning it reacts quickly to inputs. The touchscreen works very precisely—even in the corners and along the edges. A fingerprint sensor is integrated into the standby button on the right-hand side of the case. It recognizes fingerprints very precisely after one or more prints have been saved and there is only a minimal delay when unlocking the phone.

Facial recognition is also possible which works via the front-facing camera without an additional sensor. It is also fairly accurate. In darker environments, the screen light is usually sufficient for recognition.

Cameras – Decent photo quality

Picture taken using front-facing camera
Picture taken using front-facing camera

Motorola uses a 50-megapixel sensor from Samsung as the Moto G24's main camera, which usually only uses 1/4 of its resolution for photos. This results in larger pixels and a bigger light yield.

HDR shots look rather mediocre; the plant in the foreground remains quite dark, whereas the bright background is easy to recognize. The camera's overall image sharpness isn't the best; the sunlit areas of the photo of our surroundings are slightly too bright but overall, the image looks okay.

In low light and high contrasts, the picture brightening works well but its sharpness is visibly reduced. Without a light source in the picture, the phone's camera is no longer able to adequately brighten the picture in low light conditions.

Videos can be recorded at a maximum of 1080p and 30fps. The autofocus works quite fast but it doesn't always work invisibly.

The device also features a macro lens for extreme close-up shots—it has a very low resolution of 2 megapixels. Snapshots look acceptable but you shouldn't enlarge the pictures too much.

The selfie cam on the front has a resolution of 8 megapixels and takes decent photos in good light. The photos' brightness could be a little better, but you can enlarge them without losing too much quality.

Display – 90 Hz but with a blue tint

Sub-pixel array
Sub-pixel array

The screen shows no major differences compared to the Moto G24 Power: Its resolution of 1,612 x 720 pixels is not unusual for the price range, but it is still quite low. Fonts in particular appear visibly blurrier than on Full HD screens of a similar size.

Its maximum brightness is around 510 cd/m², so it can also be used in somewhat brighter environments but in direct sunlight, it is almost impossible to see anything due to reflections.

We discovered a visible blue tint when testing the screen using software from CalMAN and our spectrophotometer. Strong red tones in particular are somewhat distorted by this and the display appears quite cool in general.

We did not notice any PWM flickering even at low brightness levels.

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
21.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13 ms rise
↘ 8.4 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 41 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
36 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19.9 ms rise
↘ 16.1 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 44 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (33.7 ms).

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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17803 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life – Good speakers, good runtimes

MediaTek Helio G85 is used as the phone's SoC. It is a popular choice within this price range and is also used inside the Xiaomi Redmi 13C, for example. The processor is by no means capable of miracle performance levels, but it is sufficient for smooth navigation through the device's menus in most cases. However, more complex apps reveal where its performance limits lie. The Samsung Galaxy A15 4G, for example, offers significantly more power.

The SoC doesn't do well with complex graphics either, but that isn't to be expected in this price range. It is annoying that Motorola has also chosen to use very slow storage: Although eMMC flash is the standard inside inexpensive phones, the Galaxy A15 4G shows that much faster storage modules enable shorter loading times and a generally smoother system.

After 1 hour of our stress test, we measured the Moto G24's surface temperatures. The result: 39.1 °C was the maximum value we noted—this is noticeable but not critical. However, we measured this at room temperature, so it could easily be even higher in the summer or in hot environments. The SoC's performance isn't throttled even after prolonged full load scenarios.

The speaker on the bottom edge of the phone does not have to do its job alone, as it is supported by the phone's earpiece, making stereo sound possible. The sound is quite good for the price range and even a few low mids are audible. External audio devices can be connected via the 3.5mm audio jack or Bluetooth. Lots of codecs are available for wireless audio transmission, including hi-res-audio-capable ones such as LDAC and more exotic variants such as Opus.

The phone's 5,000 mAh battery is exactly 1,000 mAh weaker than that of the Moto G24 Power. This made itself noticeable during our WLAN test: Its runtimes turned out to be over 2 hours shorter, but they are still decent compared to the rest of the comparison field. 16:09 hours of continuous use without needing to recharge the phone should make it well-equipped for everyday use.

It should be noted that its charging speed is reduced compared to the Moto G24 Power, with a maximum of only 15 watts. This means that it takes up to 2:30 hours for the battery to be fully charged again.

Motorola Moto G24 review. Test device provided by:
Motorola Moto G24 review. Test device provided by:
cyberport.de

The Motorola Moto G24 is a decent budget phone in its own right with a bright display, decent cameras, good speaker sound and runtimes suitable for everyday use. However, it also faces some great in-house competition: the Moto G24 Power offers a larger battery, faster charging and more storage. 

However, if you are content with fewer features and want to save a few dollars, the Moto G24 boasts a good overall package including NFC, a 90 Hz display and a very stylish and well-made case in modern but not obtrusive colors.

In terms of performance, you shouldn't set your expectations too high, but the same can be said for the entire price class. If you predominantly write messages, surf the web and make phone calls, then the Moto G24 will be totally sufficient.

The Moto G24 is a simple phone for little money which offers a decent range of features and an attractive case.

A further alternative could be the Samsung Galaxy A15 4G which is pretty cheap these days, plus, it offers considerably better performance.

Price and availability

The Motorola Moto G24 can currently be found on Amazon for US$195.
