Motorola Moto G50 smartphone review: 5G mid-range phone with 90 Hz display

Second place. The Motorola Moto G50 is a mid-range device that costs around 250 Euros (~$295) and features a 90 Hz display and 5G support. That sounds like a good configuration for the Moto phone, but there are also weaknesses. We'll look at them in more detail in our review.

Motorola Moto G50

The second fastest and second most expensive new member of the Moto G family goes by the name of Moto G50. Like the Moto G100, the mid-range smartphone features 5G and a 90 Hz display, but it's considerably slower, and the 250-Euro (~$295) price difference is also noticeable in terms of features.

Nevertheless, it could be a good offer compared with similarly priced smartphones, since you also get a fairly pure Android OS and a large battery.

Case – Moto without Gorilla Glass?

The Motorola Moto G50 is mostly made of plastic on the outside. The blue-gray or dark green back reflects and refracts light in its deeper layers, resulting in nice light effects. The camera module itself already protrudes slightly from the case, and the lenses are raised further. We would have preferred a homogeneous surface structure in terms of feel here, and the camera module visually appears a bit like it was added later as well. However, that is naturally a matter of taste.

A fingerprint sensor with an integrated Motorola logo is also located on the back.

Motorola doesn't provide any information regarding the use of Gorilla Glass on the front. It could be that the manufacturer does use Gorilla Glass but hasn't acquired the license, so that it's not allowed to do any advertising with it; or it could also be the case that it's a simpler display glass. Either way, the protection against a broken display glass can only be assessed poorly compared with other smartphones in the price range.

The smartphone has a sturdy build. The Moto G50 is hardly affected by pressure, even when applied to the screen. The specified IP52 protection indicates dust resistance and protection against splashing water.

Connectivity – Dual SIM and USB-C

The Moto G50 comes with 4 GB of RAM, and you can also choose whether you want 64 GB of mass storage or 128 GB. Two SIM cards can be used in the smartphone, or you can replace one of the two cards with a microSD card to expand storage.

A modern USB-C port is available, but it's only connected internally with USB 2.0 speeds.

Software – Pure Android in the Moto phone

A fairly pure Android 11 is installed on the smartphone. Motorola traditionally doesn't use its own launcher, but it only installs the Moto app for device-specific settings instead. The security patches are at the level of May 2021 and therefore no longer quite up to date.

Users who like to watch HD content on streaming services can do so without any issues, since a DRM Widevine L1 certification is available.

Communication and GNSS – Fast WLAN and NFC

Wi-Fi 5 is the maximum supported standard in the smartphone, which is common in this price range. In our Wi-Fi test with the Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router, the Moto G50 is relatively slow but still within the normal range for a device with Wi-Fi 5. You can get considerably faster transfer rates, though, with the Poco X3 Pro, for example.

The Moto G50 offers 5G support, another feature that is almost standard for this price range this year, while the Redmi Note 10S, for example, has to get by only with 4G. In addition, the review sample supports numerous 4G frequencies, so you can also browse the mobile Internet quite reliably when traveling abroad.

Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC are also on board, so you can also use mobile payment services without problems.

Although the Moto G50 doesn't recognize many satellites according to the GPS Test app, it's sufficient for precise positioning: A very good accuracy of 3 meters is already achieved after a few seconds.

In our practical test, a bike ride on which we also take the Garmin Edge 520 as a comparison device, the Moto G50 proves to be fairly accurate in terms of positioning accuracy. However, it's occasionally off track too. If you don't need absolute accuracy, the Moto phone should be a suitable navigation device.

Telephone and call quality – Talking loudly is required

Motorola uses a fairly pure version of Android, so the phone app is also from Google. It's easy to use, and it might also be familiar to some users who have switched from other mobile phone brands, so it's not a bad choice in general. It goes without saying that VoWiFi and VoLTE are on board.

In terms of call quality, we noticed that the internal earpiece has a pretty decent sound, and the voice of person on the other end doesn't overmodulate even at maximum volume. However, we aren't satisfied with the microphone's quality: You have to speak very loudly for your voice to be picked up. The speaker has a rather poor sound in hands-free mode, where voices sound very thin, and once again, the microphone has trouble registering our voice when we speak a bit more quietly.

Cameras – Main camera with pixel-binning

Photo taken with the front-facing camera
Photo taken with the front-facing camera

The Motorola smartphone comes with a 48-megapixel lens as its main camera. However, it only takes 12-megapixel photos by default, but in return, it combines each four pixels into one pixel and consequently increases the light yield. The remaining features of the main camera are rather straightforward, but that is not unusual in this price range. What's more annoying is that there is no option for recording 4K videos.

The picture quality is quite decent; bright areas tend to be slightly overexposed and details generally look a bit pixelated, but the camera should be absolutely sufficient for the less demanding photographers. Especially since the macro lens adds a bit of flexibility when you want to take close-ups.

As already mentioned, videos can only be recorded in 1080p and 60 fps with the main camera. Unfortunately, movements are displayed very shakily in the viewfinder; they are smoother in the final video, but you can clearly see how the autofocus is searching for the right sharpness.

The front-facing camera has a resolution of 13 megapixels and takes solid selfies that are still quite sharp even when enlarged.

Image Comparison

Choose a scene and navigate within the first image. One click changes the position on touchscreens. One click on the zoomed-in image opens the original in a new window. The first image shows the scaled photograph of the test device.

The image looks very grainy in very low light, but the detail reproduction and the illumination are absolutely fine. At a brightness of only 1 lux, the pictures are still somewhat recognizable.

Accessories and warranty – An odd decision

If a manufacturer doesn't include a charger, they're either cheap or environmentally conscious then, since many people have a USB charger at home anyway.

The situation is a bit different for the Motorola Moto G50: Although a charger is included, it only supports charging at 10 watts, even though the smartphone can actually handle 15 watts. The environmental argument doesn't work here, so it can only be because Motorola wants to save money, which we find unfortunate in two respects: Customers will either put up with this and charge their device slower, or they will buy another 15-watt charger, which will leave them with two chargers. Even if buyers already have a 15-watt charger at home, they don't need the included charger, so it's an unnecessary accessory.

We don't know how much the additional purchase price is for a 15-watt power adapter compared to the 10-watt charger. However, we find it an odd decision to include a power adapter that doesn't make use of the phone's capabilities.

Otherwise, the package includes a silicone bumper case, a headset, and a USB cable, of course, as well as a SIM tool. Therefore, an extensive range of accessories is available.

Motorola offers customers in Central Europe a 24-month warranty.

Input devices and handling – Fast operation

The touchscreen can be used smoothly, and the perceived response time is very fast as well thanks to the 90 Hz display. There's a dedicated button for Google Assistant on the right side of the case. Since the volume rocker and power button are directly below it, it takes a while to find the desired button. More clarity would have been nice here.

The fingerprint scanner is found on the back. Fans of clean designs would probably prefer a sensor underneath the screen, but the dedicated scanner works very quickly and unlocks the screen after only a brief delay. The fingerprint recognition is very reliable as well.

By no means do all competitors offer a 90 Hz display. However, some of them offer a higher resolution: 1600x720 pixels like in the Moto G50 should slowly become a thing of the past even in this price range. On the other hand, the difference in quality compared to Full HD is visible, but not huge on comparatively small smartphone displays.

A more serious issue for us is that the Moto G50, like the Moto G10 and the Moto G20, fails to convince in terms of display brightness: We measure an average of 324.7 cd/m². That rather sounds like values that were normal a few years ago. Today, we expect better brightness rates especially for outdoor use.

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 2336000 Hz ≤ 20 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 2336000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 20 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 2336000 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 15366 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

We do notice PWM, but it's at such a high frequency that it shouldn't cause problems even for sensitive users. However, the response times are quite lengthy.

In terms of grayscales, our tests with the spectrophotometer and the CalMAN software only reveal a slight blue tint. Nevertheless, color accuracy is only mediocre, and especially violet tones show significant deviations.

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

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 91 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.8 ms).

The low maximum brightness proves to be a significant limitation outdoors: Since the display is reflective, it's difficult to still be able to make out the screen's content in sunny days.

Our viewing-angle test reveals good visibility even when looking at the display from the sides.

Performance – Typical for 250-Euro smartphones

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 offers class-typical performance with its two high-performance cores at up to 2 GHz and six slower cores at up to 1.8 GHz. Users who don't expect any high-end performance in this price range will not be disappointed, and power is also sufficient for the vast majority of apps.

However, excessive multi-tasking poses a problem for the SoC, and users who run demanding apps on their smartphone will also have to deal with restrictions.

Web browsing is quite fast with the Moto G50. Our benchmarks place it in the top field of similarly priced smartphones, though with a clear gap to Xiaomi's Poco X3 Pro. Websites load reasonably quickly, and you don't have to wait that long for pictures to appear when scrolling.

According to the spec sheet, the Moto G50 uses UFS 2.1 storage, but it only delivers very slow data transfer speeds. Sequential read rates are even the lowest that we have ever measured for UFS 2.1 storage in this size. As a result, you shouldn't expect fast data transfers here.
