Motorola Moto G52 smartphone review - Affordable 90-Hz OLED phone with stereo sound and 50 MP

Better than a Redmi Note 11? With the Moto G52, Motorola created an affordable Moto phone that achieves very long runtimes in our testing. Additionally, the bright 90-Hz OLED display is one of the best in its price range. However, there is also one big drawback to the Motorola Moto G52.
Motorola Moto G52 smartphone review

The Motorola Moto G52 is an inexpensive mid-range phone with an MSRP of just 295 USD. For this low price, the Moto smartphone features an OLED panel with a fast 90-Hz refresh rate. Below the hood of the Moto G52, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB flash storage as well as a 50-megapixel main camera.

The battery of the Motorola phone has a capacity of 5000 mAh and can be charged at up to 30 watts. A fingerprint sensor on the edge, an integrated 3.5-mm headphone jack and a dual-speaker setup complete the features.

Despite being fairly large, the Moto G52's weight of only 169 grams (~5.96 oz) is relatively low and, combined with the rounded back, makes for good handling properties. The low weight stems from the use of plastic for parts including the frame and back. The latter is available in Charcoal Gray or Porcelain White. However, the mildly glossy back cover feels less premium compared to a glass version such as the back cover of the Mi 11 Lite 5G.

We are pleased with the build quality of the mid-range phone. The Moto G52 also carries the IP certification IP52, which signals a water resistant design. Thus, it is protected against splash water from spilled drinks or light rain. However, the Moto G52 is not designed to be submerged in water or other fluids.

While Motorola does not specify the materials used for the front, there is a flat OLED panel. Since it is surrounded by fairly slim bezels, it reaches a screen-to-body ratio of more than 86 %.

microSD Card Reader

We measure the transfer speeds of the card slot with the help of our reference memory card AV PRO V60. According to the CPDT benchmark, the Moto phone performs very well, although the sequential write speeds in particular could have been slightly higher. In our JPEG copy test, we only measured an average result of less than 21 MB/s.

Software - Motorola Phone with Android 12

With MyUX, Motorola installs a clean and minimal system user interface on top of Google's Android. It includes the familiar Moto Experiences and countless customization options. At the time of testing, our Moto G52 runs Android version 12 with slightly dated security patches from March 2022. Updates are planned for 2 years following the release including early 2024.

Motorola's own Ready-for functionality is not included in the MyUX UI of the Moto G52, but the affordable Motorola mid-ranger does support the hardware and software security features called ThinkShield for Mobile. There is no true always-on display feature for incoming notifications. Instead, the Moto G52 comes with Motorola's familiar preview display feature, which shows messages when lifting the smartphone.

Communication and GNSS - Moto G52 with NFC

In terms of communications standards, the Moto G52 supports Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC for contactless payments. The Moto phone performs well in our Wi-Fi network thanks to Wi-Fi 5 support, although reaching high transfer speeds within homenetworks is not possible with the Moto G52. When connected to our reference router Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, the mid-range smartphone achieves consistent speeds.

When it comes to the mobile web, the Moto phone only supports LTE speeds due to the integrated Qualcomm X11 modem, whereas 5G is not available. The Motorola phone also may not be suitable for far travels, since the LTE band support is limited. However, the domestic frequency range of the Moto G52 is satisfactory for 4G networking.

In order to judge the precision of the geolocation capabilities of our test device in practice, we simultaneously record our track with the Garmin Venu 2 for comparison purposes. The satellite systems GPS (L1), GLONASS, BeiDou, and Galileo (E1) as well as SBAS are used to determine our position.

Over the course of our test track with a length of 4 km (~2.49 mi), the deviations of our mid-range smartphone compared to the smartwatch are fairly small. A detailed look at the GPS recording shows the Moto G52 to be similar to the Garmin device in terms of precision, making the Moto smartphone a good choice for ordinary navigation tasks. However, the Moto phone tends to cut corners.

The dual SIM phone supports two nano SIM cards and an additional memory card. The call quality of the Moto G52 in quiet environments is good and the speakerphone allows for clear communication during video calls. Even at a distance of 1 meter (~3.28 ft) from the phone, our voice is still clearly audible.

The front camera inside the small hole in the top of the display has a resolution of 16 MP. Under daylight, selfies offer a good level of sharpness and a decent color representation. However, front camera pictures taken with the portrait mode often look overexposed with a burnt-out background.

On the back, Motorola installs a triple camera with a 50-megapixel main camera and a f/1.8 aperture. The Samsung S5KJN1, which is also used by the Redmi Note 11, combines four pixels each into one superpixel, capturing more light. This results in 12.5-megapixel pictures, although a special mode also allows users to make use of the full resolution.

Under daylight, the pictures of the Moto G52 turn out well for a mid-range phone, although the exposure and sharpness could be better. In this regard, the Redmi Note 11 performs slightly better and the color representation is also slightly superior.

While the macro optics has limited uses during day-to-day use, the 8-MP ultrawide lens shines with a large field of view and a good quality relative to the sub-300-USD price range. That being said, the pictures are distorted near the edges and the sharpness leaves something to be desired.

The video recordings of all cameras are limited to Full HD and 30 FPS. Switching between the main and wide-angle lens during video recording is not possible.

We analyze the color accuracy of the 50-MP optics compared to the reference colors with the ColorChecker passport under controlled lighting conditions. Aside from the typical smartphone brightening, the Moto G52 also shows fairly large ColorChecker deviations. Considering the price, however, the outliers in terms of the color accuracy (>15) are still acceptable.

Motorola Moto G52 comes with a charger.

The package of the Moto G52 includes a modular 33-watt charger, a data/charging cable, a cover, a SIM needle, and a quick-start guide including warranty information.

The standard 12-month warranty applies. There is an optional, extended warranty available for the Moto G52 that covers mechanical failures for another 12 months. The optional accident protection is called Moto Care (99 USD for 2 years) and includes additional protection against water and physical damages.

Input Devices & Handling - Moto G52 with FaceUnlock

While the integrated fingerprint sensor in the power button reliable unlocks the Moto G52, it is not exactly fast. Waking the display up from standby is also a somewhat sluggish affair. The 2D facial recognition FaceUnlock via the front camera works well during daily use, although it is not very secure.

Inputs on the 6.6-inch OLED display are executed precisely all the way into the corners of the touchscreen. Thanks to the high refresh rate of 90 Hz, animations and scrolling web pages look smooth for the most part.

Display - Moto Phone with an OLED Panel

Subpixel array
Subpixel array

The Moto G52 features a 6.6-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels and a fixed refresh rate of 60 or 90 Hz. Alternatively, users can let the phone switch between the two refresh rates automatically.

In terms of the brightness and illumination, the Motorola phone falls into the excellent range of the Redmi Note 11. We measure a peak of 664 nits when displaying a purely white image. During the APL50 test with an even distribution of bright and dark areas, we measured an almost identical 651 nits in the center of the screen. This makes the HDR10 panel a suboptimal choice for the playback of content with a high dynamic range.

Due to the underlying OLED technology, the Moto phone suffers from screen flickering. While we detect a low PWM frequency of about 90 Hz, the cycles are at least consistent. Regardless, this may affect sensitive users who can thankfully enable the optional DC dimming mode (anti flicker) from the settings menu.

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 90.1 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 90.1 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 90.1 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19737 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Measurements at a fixed zoom level and different brightness settings

Although the Moto phone does not offer much in terms of customization when it comes to the color balance, users can at least choose between two different profiles. In both cases, the color temperature can be adjusted, whereas individual parameters such as the saturation cannot.

Our tests with the CalMAN software and a spectrophotometer show the AMOLED panel to be very accurate with low color deviations (profile: natural). Due to the OLED technology, which allows for individual pixels to be switched off entirely, displaying an "absolute" black is possible and the contrast (theoretically) approaches infinity.

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.

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 21 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.3 ms).

Thanks to the high luminance, the Moto G52 is well-suited to daily outdoor use. Although the high contrasts still allow users to read the display under direct sunlight and with the resulting glare on the screen, users should not expect the brightness reserves of a Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The viewing angles of the AMOLED panel are excellent and only the perceived brightness decreases when viewed from extreme angles.

Gaming - Moto G52 only Reaches 30 FPS

We use GameBench app to take a closer look at the gaming performance of the Moto G52. In order to be able to run more demanding games, the Motorla phone integrates an Adreno 610 for a sufficient graphics performance, although the installed GPU is an entry-level unit.

As a result, PUBG Mobile is only playable at low details, while the medium detail setting (HD) cannot be selected. At the lowest detail setting, the Moto G52 manages approximately 30 FPS, while better graphics cause the frame rate to drop to 25 FPS.

The arena shooter Armajet, which in theory supports 144 FPS, runs smoothly, but the Moto phone is once again limited to 30 FPS. On average, the low fluctuations result in a solid frame rate of 30 frames per second.

GFXBench of the Moto G52

Under load, the surface-level heat development of the Moto phone is not homogenous. We recorded non-critical maximum temperatures of 42.8 °C (110.84 °F), and the internal heat development of the Moto G52 does not cause the Qualcomm SoC to throttle.

The GFXBench and Wild Life stress tests illustrate that the performance only falls off slightly under an increased load.

Speakers

The Moto G52 uses a dual-speaker setup, which not only creates a stereo effect, but also ensures a sufficient maximum volume level. Relative to its price category, the sound is great. Our measurements of the Moto phone show a linear frequency response chart for the mids and a treble that falls off slightly. There is not really any bass.

The audio experience with wireless or wired headphones is pleasant as well. The Moto G52's 3.5-mm headphone jack allows for music playback with more bass. In addition to the headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0 including the SBC, AAC, aptX HD, and aptX Adaptive as well as LDAC and LHDC codecs.

Verdict on the Motorola Moto G52

With the Moto G52, Motorola has created a great and well-rounded mid-range smartphone. Both the wide range of features and the great display quality for a cheap mid-range smartphone are worth mentioning. The Moto G52 also offers a great build quality and even an IP certification, although for 295 USD, we would have preferred the premium haptics of a glass back. If you are willing to partially give up the excellent battery life of the Motorola phone, the Redmi Note 11 is a viable alternative, even cheaper mid-range phone with similar features, a better main camera, and a slightly brighter OLED panel.

If you have no need for the fast 5G standard, the Moto G52 is a fantastic mid-range phone with a fairly low price.

Considering the price of the Moto G52, the only real drawbacks are the lack of 5G support and the camera quality. That being said, the performance of the Snapdragon 680 is also lower compared to what most phones in this price range can offer - the Poco M4 Pro for example is able to double some of the benchmark scores of our test device. For users who like to play the odd Android game, the slightly more expensive Galaxy A33 5G is a better choice.

Price and Availability

The Motorola Moto G52 is available from around 295 USD on Amazon.com.
