Reviews for the Motorola Moto G72

81.9% Motorola Moto G72 smartphone review – OLED with best-in-class brightness but no 5G | Notebookcheck
With a 108-Megapixel camera and a very bright OLED screen, the Motorola Moto G72 aims to shine in the lower mid-range. But will the fact that there is no 5G mobile communication doom the Moto G72 in our test?
80% Moto G72 review: welcome back, Motorola
Source: Mezha EN English
The Motorola company is resuming active work in Ukraine, gradually expanding its line of smartphones, one of the latest additions of which was the Moto G72. The model offers a lot of interesting things for a relatively affordable price tag, so let’s see if it can renew the interest of buyers in the once-legendary series of smartphones.

74% Motorola Moto G72 review
Source: GSM Arena English
The Moto G72 makes a pretty compelling case for itself. It's got a display that wouldn't be out of place on the phone twice its price; it has battery life to spare, charges quickly and takes solid pictures for its class. The lightweight body is a strong selling point, too, as is the audio package. And Motorola's software package that marries a Pixel look with extra in-house features is easy to like. Less exciting is the dated OS version, and the planned Android 13 update can't come soon enough. It's not going to bring 4K video recording or 5G connectivity, though, so if either is important for you, the Moto G72 is obviously a no-go. If, however, you're not big on video capture and you can leave the next-gen connectivity for your next phone, this Moto has a lot going for it.

94% Motorola Moto G72 Review: Once Again a Strong Midranger!
Source: Root Nation English
Motorola Moto G72 is a successful mid-range smartphone. Excellent screen, good performance and energy efficiency, juicy photos, stereo speakers, headphone jack, good battery life, and high build quality. Of course, there are some downsides: the lack of a 5G module, weak auxiliary camera modules, and only 30W charging. But these are small things, and the main feature for me is pure Android with useful features from Motorola. I can recommend this smartphone!

80% Moto G72 Review: The Odd One Out

That being said, the phone comes with a huge asterisk -- lack of 5G support. The Moto G72 is the only phone in the company's portfolio of phones priced above Rs. 15,000 to not offer 5G network support. Those who want 5G support will obviously have to look at something like the Moto G82 5G (Review) for a couple of thousand rupees more. The latter offers better performance, the same multimedia experience, and all-day battery life while staying future-proof with 5G network support. Alternatively, if you want a no-compromise budget smartphone and don't want to jump on the 5G bandwagon, then the Moto G72 could certainly be considered. If near-stock Android experience is not your priority and you want to consider other options, you can check the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G (Review) or even the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G (Review).

Motorola Moto G72 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
After going through all of the sections of the Motorola Moto G72 smartphone, we conclude that this phone is precisely tailored for the mid-range market. It might have some downsides, but those factors can be overlooked once if you are looking for a value-for-money deal. Generally speaking, if you live in metropolitan cities or you don’t want to compromise on features in your budget range, then the Moto G72 is an incredible deal. However, if you can’t overlook the 5G support, then we recommend you check out the Poco X4 Pro as an alternative option. But on the other hand, 5G connectivity only improves internet speed. Yet, the Motorola Moto G72 still looking for a tempting deal according to the 2022 standard. However, make the final call according to your requirements.

70% Motorola Moto G72 review: clean software, great display
Source: 91mobiles English
I think that the Moto G72 is a device that should be considered for an optimal viewing and software experience. The phone also has the added advantage of clicking more than decent pictures irrespective of the lighting conditions. While the G72’s performance is not best suited for heavy-duty gaming, regular smartphone usage remains optimal. In addition to that, the phone also boasts a good battery life and acceptable charging speeds. All things considered, the Moto G72 could have the potential to be your choice under Rs 20,000.

Moto G72 First Impressions: A Promising All-Rounder That Misses Out on 5G

The sub-Rs. 20,000 price segment is currently filled with a plethora of options. These include the Redmi Note 11 Pro, Realme 9 Pro 5G, iQOO Z6 5G, OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G, etc. While most phones in this segment offer 5G network support at the cost of a higher price tag or compromised specifications, the Moto G72 ditches 5G in order to offer a good all-round experience.

ARM Mali-G57 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 2 clusters. Based on the Valhall architecture.

Helio G99: ARM based octa-core SoC with 2x big ARM Cortex-A76 cores and 6x small and power efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores. All clocked up to 2.2 GHz. Integrates a Cat-13 LTE Modem (4G) and a ARM Mali-G57 MP2 graphics card. Compared to the older Helio G96, the G99 is manufactured in the more recent 6nm process and clocks higher.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.60":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

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


Motorola: Founded in 1928, the US-based company mainly focuses on communication technology such as smartphones. The original company Motorola Inc was split up in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone division and was taken over by Google in 2012 and Lenovo in 2014.

The company is known for its cell phones and other electronic devices such as smartwatches, tablets and accessories. Motorola was one of the first companies to produce cell phones, and in recent years has also innovated in the areas of 5G technology and modular smartphones (Moto Mods). Motorola is also active in public safety and professional communications, providing solutions for government agencies, businesses and other organizations. The company has operations in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America and employs more than 10,000 people worldwide. 


78.17%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
