Reviews for the Motorola One 5G Ace

As highlighted here, the biggest caveats here are fairly important ones. But nearly all of those could be mitigated via a software update. An update that Motorola has still said is coming. In fact, it will eventually get Android 12 and that should come with some significant improvements beyond the OS too. That’s if Motorola’s previous update cycles are any indication. So notes about camera inconsistencies, the lack of some of the newest features, and even some qualms about the display and charging could ultimately be mitigated to a certain extent. Bearing that in mind, when the cameras here do perform properly, they’re brilliant for the money. The performance, display resolution, audio features, solid connectivity, and battery life, conversely, are all stellar. As this phone currently stands, it’s a great value compared to others we’ve reviewed. And that can only be improved with the incoming updates, if and when they arrive.

The brand has a good track record of launching some useful phones. Known for its efficiency, each feature adds great value to users. You will get all the features you need in the Motorola One 5G UW Ace smartphone. Because of the emergence of hundreds of smartphone brands, Motorola lost its monopoly market, but they are still releasing some decent smartphones. Equipped with 5G support and a decent processing chipset, you won’t want to miss this phone. Although the company doesn’t care much about design, colors, and storage, to some extent you may find this phone to be expensive. If you are not satisfied with the specs and look for an alternative, we recommend you check the vivo iQOO U3x 5g smartphone.

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.

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.
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.

74.17%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
