In our review, we found that the Motorola's affordable mid-range smartphone Moto G41 offers two features worth noting. One was OIS, the other turned out to be a big surprise.

The Moto G41 is yet another affordable Motorola smartphone in our lab. Its highlight is without a doubt its very bright OLED panel, especially considering the Moto G41’s low price.

It comes with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display running at a native resolution of 2400 x 1080 and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. On an all-white background, it managed a very respectable 712 nits, an excellent result for its price class. In addition, its display turned out to be very well calibrated. When tested using the CalMAN software the phone colored almost the entire sRGB color space in its default settings already (color profile: Natural). Its very low Delta E deviations result in very accurate colors.

Another highlight is the main camera’s optical image stabilization, a feature rarely to be found on sub-$300 smartphones. Its 48 MP main camera with an aperture of f/1.7 takes good photos in bright light with good focus and a high contrast ratio. However, we did also notice some softening. Color accuracy was also superb and better than on some high-end premium smarthpones. In out ColorChecker passport test the Motorola Moto G41 only showed one single spike of Delta E > 10 worth noting. We would have also wished for a better overall white balance, though.

As is very common in this price range the Moto G41 requires various compromises. Found out which in our extensive review.

If you are in the market for an affordable mid-range smartphone with optical image stabilization the Motorola Moto G41 might be right for you.
