Reviews for the Motorola Moto G50

79.2% Motorola Moto G50 smartphone review: 5G mid-range phone with 90 Hz display | Notebookcheck
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.
70% Nokia G50 review
Source: Techradar English
The Nokia G50 is another sub-$300/£200 phone with 5G, and it benefits from solid build quality and clean software. Like its direct rivals, however, it makes several telling compromises to hit those next-gen network speeds. You really need to ask yourself how much 5G is worth to you before committing to any of these phones, but if you do, the Nokia G50 won’t let you down.

If you spend most of your phone time glued to Netflix or YouTube, the G50's giant screen is certain to please - and seeing how 5G SIM-only plans can be had from as little as a tenner a month, buffer-free viewing should be guaranteed. Nokia's most affordable 5G handset is no speed demon, though, so anyone coming from an older flagship might be frustrated by the at times sluggish performance. Its multiple cameras are never going to blow you away, and for no extra outlay, the identically-named Motorola Moto G50 adds a 90Hz display into the mix. If you're not fussed about 5G, you can find more CPU muscle for your money if you shop around the lesser-known Chinese brands like Poco, Realmi and Redmi. They also have varying degrees of Android customisation, though - and more flexible commitment to software updates. The G50, on the other hand, should still be bang up to date in two years' time. Not too shabby for £200.

83% Motorola g50 5G – a good value business or consumer phone (review)
Source: Gadgetguy English
The Motorola g50 5G has a budget system-on-a-chip, 720p screen, mono speaker and plastic construction. That, my friends, is how you make a $399 phone. It works well, has Wi-Fi AC, NFC, 5000mAh battery, and the camera is OK. But it does the question – do you need to spend $100 more for the Edge 20 Fusion? If $399 is all you have, then the is no better. Or if it is a stretch then 5G phones start from $349 and frankly there are some excellent devices – Samsung A22 128GB $299, vivo Y52 128GB $379, OPPO A54 64GB $399, realme 7 128GB $439 and OPPO A74 128GB $449. If you see enough difference and value, then go to the $499 Edge 20 Fusion. That is not to belittle the g-50, but there is way over $100 value in moving up.

So, all in all, the Motorola Moto G50 5G isn’t a bad phone. At PHP 10,495, there are a lot of better phones at this price range from its competitors, but if you are looking for a smartphone that can perform well to your basic day-to-day needs, has a 5G connectivity, good battery life, 90Hz screen, and a lean Android build, you’ll be fairly happy with this phone.

Motorola moto G50 5G Review Philippines: Unexciting
Source: Unbox English
Our review of the Motorola moto G50 5G shows that it could have been a top contender for a budget 5G smartphone in the Philippines if it wasn’t for the dim display and the bad selfie lag we experienced during its time with us. There are some bright spots – its Php 10,495 price tag is pretty competitive, and its long battery life is useful especially for people who can’t be arsed to charge their phone daily.

64% Moto G50 review
Source: GSM Arena English
In fact, this conclusion applies to pretty much all of the phones in the new crop of "affordable 5G handsets". The addition of 5G to cheap phones brings little value to the end-users. In fact, the manufacturers' push to bring 5G to the lowest price tiers is counter-productive for consumers as it results in having devices with severe drawbacks in other areas. We feel like these cheap 5G phones are merely intended to bolster carrier portfolios around the world and help promote their budding 5G networks rather than meeting any practical consumer needs and we find them hard to recommend over their LTE-only counterparts.

60% Motorola Moto G50 review: another budget phone with basic specs
Source: T3 English
The Motorola Moto G50 is a cheap 5G smartphone with a big colourful screen and decent battery life. Granted, the camera leaves a lot to be desired, and there’s no specific area it excels in but that’s expected if you’re spending so little on a phone.

70% Moto G50 review: The odd one out?
Source: Pocket Lint English
All in all the Moto G50 isn't a bad phone. If you bought one you'd probably be content with its capabilities. What it is, however, is a confusing entry to the G-series, skewing the range's numbering convention and delivering a handset that - aside from the 5G addition - is largely worse off than the lower-spec and lower-price G30. And that just compounds the G50's problems: its competition, both from within Motorola and outside, is strong to the point that there's not a huge amount of reason to consider it. Sure, having 5G is nice, but is it the one outstanding feature that'll make you want to buy a phone? No, not really. We'd rather have a wide-angle camera. So save some cash and get the G30, or spend a touch more and look elsewhere instead.

Not bothered about that extra layer of tech skimmed off to accomodate 5G? You’ll probably like the Motorola Moto G50 a lot. It performs reasonably well day-to-day and the battery life is excellent. Like the best Moto G phones it nails the basics and comes with no day-ruining problems.

Theoretically the superior version of the Moto G30 if you were to listen to product names, the Moto G50 is another one of Motorola's cheap Android 11 phones for 2021, coming in at £199.99 (around $275 / AU$360). As a 5G phone it's one of the cheapest ways to jump on the 5G bandwagon, but elsewhere its feature set is a little more unassuming. While everything about the Moto G50 is just fine - from its 90Hz screen to its Snapdragon 480 chipset and trio of main cameras - nothing actually stands out as much as we'd like it to. At this price, that's less of an issue than you might think given the Moto G50 is solidly dependable in every way. Just don't expect to be wowed at any point. This is the phone to buy when you're on a budget and you don't mind not having a phone to show off to others.

75% Motorola Moto G50 review: 5G for the masses
Source: Phone Arena English
The Motorola family just keeps growing and growing. I’ve completely lost track of all the models that are currently on the market, and the naming scheme doesn’t help either. The Moto G50 is one of the latest additions to the family and it’s a small brother rather than a distant cousin. The big star of the show is the Moto G100, of course, but there are three other models in the latest batch (at least for now) - the Moto G10, Moto G30, and the subject of today’s review - the Moto G50. (A quick search confirmed my suspicions - there is a G20 model too, along with a G40 fusion… Oh, well - case in point.)

100% Motorola Moto G50 review: Pick of the budget Moto Gs
Source: Expert Reviews English
Slight camera disappointments aside, there’s a whole lot to recommend about the Moto G50. It looks great, has a decent screen, includes 5G support, has an incredible battery life and is only a hair behind the Poco X3 NFC in terms of performance for £200. Factor in the nice, clean installation of Android and it’s clear Motorola is on to a winner here. I’d still probably buy the Poco X3 NFC if £200 was my absolute budget thanks to improved performance and a Full HD 120Hz screen, even though it lacks 5G. And if photography is your thing then I’d probably suggest trying to find last year’s Moto G9 Plus instead, which offers better shots and similar performance for the same price.

Close competitors like the Redmi Note 9T cost more and force you to use quirky custom versions of Android. For anyone content with 4G speeds, though, there are plenty of options that outmuscle the Moto for similar cash.

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 480: Lower mainstream octa-core with two big ARM Cortex-A76 cores at up to 2 GHz and six small ARM Cortex-A55 SoC cores clocked at up to 1.8 GHz. Furthermore, integrates and the Adreno 619 GPU, a LPDDR4x-2133 memory controller as well as an X51 5G modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.50":

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.192 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.


72.74%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
