Reviews for the Motorola Moto G34

81.9% Motorola Moto G34 5G smartphone review – The phone for money-savers who don't want to do without | Notebookcheck
The Moto G34 will only set you back about US$220. In return, you get 5G, eSIM support, a 120-Hz display and quite a bit of power. Is this the perfect budget phone?
80% Motorola Moto G34 5G Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Look past the slightly soft 6.5-inch 720p display and slightly sluggish everyday performance, and you’ll find a lot to like with the Moto G34 5G. It looks and feels good in the hand, the screen is big enough for binging content, the 50MP main camera is fine for everyday snaps, and the 5000mAh battery can comfortably get you through a day’s use. If you’re in the market for a 5G device in this price range, there are few that’ll service your needs better than the G34 5G, especially when considering the 120Hz refresh rate, battery life, and expandable storage.

85% Motorola Moto G34 5G Review: Successful Budget Phone
Source: Root Nation English
The Moto G34 stands out primarily for its design, especially the version with eco-leather - it's cool! It features 5G, stereo speakers, and an excellent camera. The performance is adequate, and the system offers clean Android 14 with useful Moto features. However, the screen disappoints - despite being 120Hz, the resolution is low, and color reproduction and brightness are weak. Additionally, having only 128GB of storage and 4GB of RAM in the base version is not competitive in 2024. Nonetheless, for its price, the model is still a success.

If you’re looking for a cheap and cheerful Android phone for kids, older relations or simply as an inexpensive handset for yourself, the Moto G34 5G has a lot going for it. Nice display, decent performance and cameras that can capture good images when there’s plenty of light. It has its flaws, but at this price, it seems churlish to complain too much.

60% Motorola Moto G34 5G review: new starting point?
Source: Stuff TV English
How badly do you want 5G on the cheap? The Motorola G34 will get your mobile data up to speed, with more heroic hardware than the cut-price competition. Similarly-priced rivals tend to be 4G-only affairs, and skip out on 120Hz screens. Daylight camera performance is OK for the money, and while Moto’s update promise is basic, it’s at least in line with the budget competition. Performance is undeniably entry-level, though, and that secondary macro lens is absolutely a token inclusion. Phones in the next price bracket up should have longer lifespans, with hardware that can better keep pace with Android’s increasingly demanding system requirements and an extra year (or more) of software updates. That makes the Motorola G34 a bit of a false economy, at least in Western markets where the Honor 90 Lite can be had for £30 more, with double the storage and punchier performance. A Motorola G54 is also only £30 more. It might run Android 13, but has a higher resolution screen, twice as much storage and memory, plus a slightly faster CPU.

70% Moto G34 Review: Affordable 5G
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Moto G34 5G will be competing with similarly priced phones from Xiaomi, Realme, and Poco. However, not a lot of phones in the price segment offer 5G connectivity, 120Hz refresh rate, and a Vegan leather finish on the rear panel. If you're looking to buy an affordable 5G smartphone and don't really care about camera performance, then the Moto G34 5G is an excellent choice. You also get a good display, dual speakers, pretty good battery life, and you can play games such as BGMI in low settings. However, if you need a good camera setup, then you're going to have to spend some more money.

Motorola Moto G34 5G | Unboxing & Full Tour
Source: Tech Spurt English
Unboxing Motorola's Moto G34 5G, a budget smartphone costing just £150 in the UK. You've got a 50MP camera, 6.5-inch LCD screen, stereo speakers and minor gaming smarts - but is the Motorola Moto G34 5G worth that price? Here's a full hands-on review so you can see it for yourself. Like most budget phones under £200, you've got to accept some compromises. That camera tech is fine for simple everyday photos and basic video capture, but the Motorola G34 struggles in softer light and with subjects that want to move about. Gaming is also limited thanks to this Moto phone's older Snapdragon chipset. Call of Duty, PubG, etc all run fine, but if you want to get Genshin on the go, upgrade to something with more grunt. Thankfully the Moto G34 5G does boast excellent battery life, although charging is rather slow.

Motorola Moto G34 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Motorola Moto G34 has some of the most balanced internal components we have ever seen in a smartphone. It also has a decent display but the emphasis was on the internals and they have certainly delivered there. On top of that, the smartphone has 5G connectivity, which is bound to impress many users, especially considering the price tag of the smartphone. Overall, it’s a very well-balanced smartphone, which should be on your list if you are in the market to buy a new smartphone. However, if you can’t wait for the smartphone to start shipping globally, then you can go for the Xiaomi Poco M6 Pro, which is available at almost the same price tag but offers better specs in some areas. However, the final decision is up to you, so it is better to choose a smartphone based on your needs and requirements.

80% Moto G34 5G review: a well-priced phone that impresses on multiple fronts
Source: 91mobiles English
The Moto G34 5G is a good option for anyone who wants a clutter-free and smooth user experience. On top of the software advantages, the phone also comes with a distinct look and a capable processor that can handle day-to-day tasks with relative ease. The phone comes with a decent display and can take good shots with the primary camera as well, but the points I mentioned earlier are its strongest points that can tilt your decision in its favour. Some other handsets in the same price range that you can also consider instead are Redmi 12 5G and POCO M6 Pro 5G. If you’re more into photography than the performance of the phone and its software, you can choose to go for these handsets.

Qualcomm Adreno 619: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 750G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance is a lot better than the old Adreno 612.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 695 5G: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 660 cores (two fast 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A78 based cores in a cluster and six power saving ARM Cortex-A55 based cores at 1.7 GHz) and a lower mid range Adreno 619 GPU. Supports only Wi-Fi 5 and is manufactured in the 6 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.50":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

Motorola: Founded in 1928, the US-based company mainly focuses on communication technology such as smartphones. The original company Motorola Inc was split up in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone division and was taken over by Google in 2012 and Lenovo in 2014.

The company is known for its cell phones and other electronic devices such as smartwatches, tablets and accessories. Motorola was one of the first companies to produce cell phones, and in recent years has also innovated in the areas of 5G technology and modular smartphones (Moto Mods). Motorola is also active in public safety and professional communications, providing solutions for government agencies, businesses and other organizations. The company has operations in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America and employs more than 10,000 people worldwide. 


75.28%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
