Reviews for the Motorola One 5G Ace
Motorola is no stranger to creating compelling feature-packed phones that won't empty your wallet. The new Motorola One 5G Ace is the most recent example. The Ace is the company's second take on the Motorola One 5G phone released last summer on AT&T and Verizon. At $400 (which converts roughly to £285 or AU$500) the Ace is $45 cheaper than last year's phone which you can still buy.

The Motorola One 5G Ace adds yet another budget 5G phone to the market, and though it doesn’t offer anything too exciting, it has well-rounded features and performance that are easy to get behind.

The biggest issue with the Motorola One 5G Ace is that I just feel like it should offer more at its price point. Here in the U.S., 5G really isn't a selling point, or at least it shouldn't be. Also, we have phones like the Nord N10 5G that do 5G at $299, albeit with a lesser Snapdragon 690 processor. Indeed, Motorola told me that it picked the Snapdragon 750G so users could get some gaming performance, which is awesome.

At $399, the Motorola One 5G Ace is the company’s least expensive 5G smartphone. It's among the cheapest 5G options you’ll find right now, though several less expensive models will be available from various manufacturers later in 2021. From solid performance to incredible battery life, the Motorola One 5G Ace does get a lot of things right. It’s a phone we want to love. But its dated version of Android and lackluster cameras make it difficult to recommend when the Google Pixel 4a 5G costs only $100 more.

The One 5G Ace meets all of those requirements, even though it does fall short of good midrange and high-end devices. Though capable, its processor can’t quite hang with the best of them. The camera is a little clumsy. The screen, while plenty big and bright, isn’t going to offer the rich viewing experience of a competing device with an OLED.

While the Ace is a solid 5G phone overall, it feels like Moto’s cruising along. Sure, the user experience is excellent thanks to its clean Android OS with a few thoughtful tweaks, but that’s true of almost every other Moto handset. And the all-plastic build is a letdown when you look at Moto’s mid-range history of devices with more premium materials. Finally, $399 isn’t as competitive without a 90Hz display, especially when the Moto One 5G only costs $45 more and the OnePlus Nord N10 5G sells for just $299. So, let’s hope MSRP drops quickly out of the gate. Finally, if battery life is of the utmost importance to you, the Moto One 5G Ace tops the charts and blew away every other phone we've tested. Kudos for another battery life champion, Moto.

The Motorola One 5G Ace features lesser specs than its predecessor, but the price has also dropped allowing for more people to make the use of 5G connectivity.

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.
SD 750G 5G: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 570 cores (two fast ARM Cortex-A77 cores at up to 2.2 GHz and six small ARM Cortex-A55 cores at up to 1.8 GHz) and a fast X52 5G modem (up to 3700 Mbps download). The SoC is manufactured in the modern 8 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.
This weight is typical for smartphones.
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.
73%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
