Reviews for the Motorola One 5G

70% Motorola One 5G review: 5G on a budget
Source: Neowin English
I feel like I should tell you to skip this one, but I don't know. If you like Motorola phones and you want sub6 5G for under $500, this could be for you. But at the same time, you could just wait for the Edge to be $499 again. Also, Motorola's lineup is just so convoluted and confusing. It gets tougher and tougher to tell you which one to get.

The Motorola One 5G offers decent performance and 5G connectivity for a lower price compared to other 5G phones. But compromises in practically every other category make it one of the less-compelling mid-range 5G phones.

60% Motorola One 5G review: An emotional roller coaster of phone features
Source: CNet English
Motorola has a history of releasing excellent budget phones, like the Moto G Stylus and G Power. And when the phone-maker launched its first 5G phone, the Moto Z3 in 2018, it was a bargain at the time, despite needing an additional 5G Moto Mod accessory to connect to the next-gen network. It makes sense, then, that for the new $445 Motorola One 5G the company combined both its affordable phone wisdom and 5G connectivity smarts -- all without the need of an accessory -- to prove finally that 5G phones don't need to be expensive in 2020. (Google also recently announced two new 5G phones, both more expensive than the Motorola One 5G: The Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4A 5G.)

Moto One 5G Review: Killer Battery Life, Lackluster Cameras
Source: Hot Hardware English
For just $445, the Moto One 5G is a good phone with solid specs. Between the 90Hz 21:9 screen, Snapdragon 765, fantastic battery life, headphone jack, and polished user experience, it cranks the value dial up to eleven. The One 5G doesn’t exist in a vacuum, though. There are other sub-$500 handsets with 5G out there, and more on the way.

70% Motorola One 5G
Source: PC Mag English
The Motorola One 5G offers solid performance, long battery life, a lovely display, and 5G for about $150 less than the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G. That said, call quality and network performance on AT&T were poor in testing, and AT&T has disabled the option to turn off 5G even when 4G can potentially provide a vastly better experience. That makes it tough the recommend, especially when the Pixel 4a offers a better experience nearly all around for $100 less. Of course, the Pixel 4a doesn't have 5G, but Google is planning to offer a 5G model in the near future for $499, which we think will be a better buy.

Motorola One 5G costs $445 and will have you saying 'iPhone SE who?'
Source: CNet English
With affordable and feature-packed offerings like the Moto G Stylus, G Power and G Fast, it's clear that Motorola thrives in the budget end of the phone market. Now with the new Motorola One 5G though, the Chicago-based company finally figured out a way to combine its budget know-how with 5G connectivity -- without the use of an additional accessory or Motorola Mod à la Moto Z4 and Z3.

70% Motorola One 5G review: Awkward middle child
Source: Android Central English
The Motorola One 5G is an interesting phone, sitting somewhere in between the Moto G and Motorola Edge lineups. Some of its specs are rather impressive, namely the 90Hz LCD display, massive 5,000 mAh battery, and little goodies like a headphone jack and expandable storage. Those aspects all work really well, but when you start piling on the various downsides — weak cameras, limited availability, and lacking update support — the Motorola One 5G becomes a tricky recommendation at its $445 price tag.

85% Motorola One 5G Review
Source: Phone Arena English
The Motorola G 5G Plus left us with good impressions back in July when it launched in Europe, and now it’s back in the States with a better name and not many differences. This is largely the same device with almost the same price tag, making it a solid choice for a snappy midranger with 5G support.

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.


69.17%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
