Motorola Moto G72: Why this smartphone also convinces us without 5G
Several days ago, we published our test of the Motorola Moto G72. We already noticed several things when we had the device for less than 300 Euros (~$316) in our hands for the first time: The discrete design and slim and light case were naturally the first things that struck us.
At the same time, we also saw that the Moto G72 is delivered with a full box of accessories including the charger, and you even get a Silicon bumper case.
When we started with our extensive tests, we already saw during our display test that Motorola thought about something special here:
The manufacturer uses an OLED display that is also fully HDR capable and impresses with a brightness close to 1,000 nits in its smartphone for much less than 300 Euros. The display offers a fairly accurate color reproduction and can also be read easily outdoors.
The battery also convinced us: Even though it does not create any new records, it still lasts for a long time. Together with performance values that are barely below the class average, there is also a good efficiency. While it won't be quite sufficient for ambitious gamers, those who can reduce their demands slightly should be able to get all games to run.
What is problematic is of course the lack of support for the most current 5G mobile communication standard, particularly since there also aren't too many supported frequency bands in the LTE range, which also makes traveling with the smartphone more difficult - at least if you want to use the mobile Internet while you travel abroad.
We also found a few additional small weaknesses in the Motorola Moto G72. What they are and why we still recommend the smartphone, you can find out in our detailed review on the Motorola Moto G72 with numerous comparison charts and benchmark results.
