Reviews for the Motorola Moto G84

82.2% Motorola Moto G84 5G smartphone review – Bright OLED & lots of storage for under US$350 | Notebookcheck
The Moto G84 costs about US$320. It features a bright OLED screen within a compact and relatively lightweight case. However, its mid-range competition is rife, which begs the question: Is the Motorola Moto G84 worth purchasing?

Motorola continues to delight with affordable, modern and quality devices. And Moto G84 5G is no exception. This is a wonderful mid-level smartphone. Excellent design, ergonomics, materials and the quality of workmanship itself. Light, thin, compact – it is pleasant not only to use, but also to hold in your hands. Performance level is at a good level, even mobile games can be played without any problems. Good autonomy, excellent software part. In general, not bad cameras, if we do not take into account video shooting. Well and most importantly – an adequate price. From the obvious disadvantages – low quality of video shooting. Otherwise, Moto G84 5G is a decent smartphone that left good impressions. Motorola Moto G84 5G is an excellent mid-range smartphone. Good design, ergonomics, materials and the quality of the device itself. Light, thin, compact - it is pleasant not only to use, but also just to hold it in your hands.

80% Motorola Moto G84 5G Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Motorola G84 5G offers a commendably classy cheap phone, with a unique vegan leather finish and a nice lightweight form factor. It also benefits from a decent pOLED screen, while the main camera takes better snaps than we’re used to from the Moto G range. Stamina, too, is excellent, with the potential for a full two days of moderate usage before it’s time to recharge. Motorola’s clean UI is a pleasure to use as always, though it’s a shame to note that it’ll only receive one major software update. Performance is a bit of a downer, with the same middling Snapdragon 695 as last year’s model. All in all, the Moto G84 5G is an elegant, poised affordable phone, though with the fabulous Motorola Edge 40 Neo available for just £50 more, it somehow doesn’t feel like outstanding value.

The Motorola G84 5G offers excellent battery life, good performance, and improves on last year’s Moto G62 model. It is let down by the so-so cameras. Average cameras plague a lot of budget phones, so it’s not a huge strike against the Moto G84, but, for £100-£150 more, you can get a phone that takes really good photos.

Motorola Moto G84 is a very interesting mid-range smartphone with a recommended price in Ukraine of UAH 10 thousand. The buyer gets a high-quality OLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, 12/256 GB of memory, a decent camera, and excellent battery life. Of course, if you want, you can find fault with the not-so-performant chipset, which is quite old, but for the price, you can forgive it.

The Moto G84 is what we would call a very non-offensive device. It rocks a classical look without any unnecessary austerity while still offering a splash of personality for those who want it in the signature Pantone Viva Magenta color option. It is a very well-constructed and, possibly more importantly, surprisingly light and well-balanced device. While imperfect, the included IP54 ingress protection also offers peace of mind. There is plenty to like about the 6.5-inch P-OLED display of the Moto. It gets very bright and has excellent color accuracy and even 10-bit colors. Unfortunately, these two excellent aspects are not leveraged for HDR support, which seems like a missed opportunity. Besides that, the Moto G84 offers a surprisingly enjoyable multimedia experience thanks to the already-mentioned display and a very competent stereo speaker setup. There is even a 3.5mm audio jack if that is your thing. The 5,000 mAh battery, while not the fastest in terms of charging, also offers great battery endurance all around.

Motorola Moto G84 5G | Unboxing, Gaming, Camera & More!
Source: Tech Spurt English
Unboxing the Motorola Moto G84 5G, with a hands-on review of the camera tech, gaming performance and best features. This £250 budget phone is one of my favourites at this price, so here's my full Motorola Moto G84 5G tour. For a start, while the Snapdragon 695 chipset is a bit creaky, it can still handle everyday life and some light gaming. This budget smartphone also boasts strong battery life, easily lasting the day and perhaps even a weekend. The Moto G84 5G's camera is a 50MP shooter with OIS, backed by an ultra-wide lens. This setup is perfectly dependable in most circumstances, certainly compared with some budget rivals. The Motorola G84 also offers a stock Android experience, with some great bonus Moto tools. However, as with other Motorola phones, software support is limited. Just a single OS update in fact. Gamers will enjoy the bonus gaming mode, and I love the gesture action.

76% Moto G84 5G Review : Doing budget phones right
Source: Think Digit English
The Moto G84 5G is a very complete smartphone. It does everything and does it well. For a sub-Rs 20,000 devices, it offers a lot. We get a premium design, a stunning pOLED display, and a very good battery life, all for a price of under Rs 20,000 in India. There are limitations, given the Snapdragon 695 chipset as we can’t record 4k videos or there is no HDR playback due to the underpowered chip, but that isn’t something a lot of sub-Rs 20,000 users will demand. What they will demand are things like display, camera, and battery and for all this, the smartphone performs quite well. I personally really liked the Moto G84 5G. From the way it looks, to the way it performs, to the software - everything on the smartphone is pretty much on-point. If it weren’t for the disappointing update cycle, I would go as far as saying that this is the best smartphone under Rs 20,000.

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 695 5G: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 660 cores (two fast 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A78 based cores in a cluster and six power saving ARM Cortex-A55 based cores at 1.7 GHz) and a lower mid range Adreno 619 GPU. Supports only Wi-Fi 5 and is manufactured in the 6 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

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. 

84.65%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
