Motorola are back, really back, forget their folding phones and legacy comeback trials. I mean that they are back and back with a bang introducing the new 2022 Moto G Stylus 5G. The phone was released on April 27, 2022, and is currently available on the market.
The Moto G Stylus 5G comes with a humongous 6.8-inch 1080p screen with a swanky refresh rate of 120HZ. What this means is that it is smooth and sleek to the extent that you won’t be expecting any lag on this screen. Consequently, the Moto G Stylus 5G is a charm for gaming. It will power through HD games like a dream while at the same time pumping enough processor juice to get you in and out of games just like that.
In terms of memory or RAM, the Moto G Stylus 5G comes with a decent 8GB of RAM, well over enough to watch beautiful HD videos without having to close other tasks while doing it or even play games with other apps running simultaneously.
Of the biggest upgrades from its 4G predecessor last year, the Moto G Stylus 5G comes with a stabilized camera. The Moto G Stylus 5G comes with a 16-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 50-megapixel main camera on the back, backed by an 8-megapixel ultrawide and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Essentially, you get a whopping 5 cameras on your new sleek android phone. I get goosebumps just thinking about all the cat videos those could make. What that means is that all those rocking and rocky videos you take will now be stabilized for smoother shots and more cinematic experiences. The beauty of this is that you can literally vlog using the Moto 5G on a DJI OM 4 SE stabilizing gimbal in your hand and create smooth shots that will wow your huge audience. 😂😂 Yes. Everyone has a huge audience. Imagine 10 people watched that beautiful video you made of your cat. 👏🎬🐈
The Moto G Stylus 5G comes with tons of internal storage. It comes with a humongous 256GB of internal storage. I mean wooah.🙀 A whole 256GB of internal storage! 🤯 256GB is a well-over sufficient amount of internal storage for all your memes, music, videos that you never post, and yes.. those screenshots that clutter your gallery. It’s simply that good. I know you’re already asking where to buy it but stay with me.
The Moto G Stylus 5G comes with a reliable 5000mAh battery. It has even been termed the 2-day battery Moto G. The phone’s battery will last you well over a full day and if you charge it responsibly, you could do a full day of video taking and social media without having to hug your wall. I mean, isn’t that a win-win? 🤗 The phone also supports quick charge meaning that you will be able to charge it rapidly to a sufficient level when in a hurry.
The Moto G Stylus 5G comes with a Snapdragon 695 5G chipset, another upgrade from its 4G counterpart. The result is a reliable octa-core processor that won’t lag and on its 6.8-inch screen; you can imagine what wonders you could do with it. A good processor, mind you, is what separates a flagship phone and budget phones but for its $499 price, the 2022 Moto G Stylus 5G is giving android flagships a run for their money. If budget is an issue for you, then you can opt for the $399 Moto G 5G that is a little bit watered down. My advice, however, is to just get the Moto G Stylus 5G and save yourself any and all headaches. Simple as that.
For connectivity, the Moto G Stylus 5G obviously comes with 5G. It is equipped with support for sub-6GHz 5G that also includes C-band frequencies. I know we are all not familiar with the intricacies of 5G yet and we’ll leave it at that. Basically, though, the Moto G Stylus 5G comes with capable 5G connectivity on top of the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity specs. It’s a phone that commands respect and we can assure you that you’ll get amicably and rapidly connected without a fuss. The Moto G Stylus 5G comes with USB Type-C 2.0, Bluetooth 5.1, and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band. It also has Wi-Fi Direct and will do a good job of hotspotting your other devices.
OS and Misc
The Moto G Stylus 5G comes with Android 12, has its fingerprint sensor mounted on the side, and uses the Nano-SIM. It also has a water repellent design. The only issue we see with the phone is its plastic build and if you don’t like using a case, then your phone might fall and be destroyed. We also don’t like that the screen does not use break-resistant glass. The currently available colors for the phone are steel blue and seafoam green.
The beauty of the Moto G Stylus 5G is that even having such huge internal storage, it still comes with a micro-SD card slot meaning that you can comfortably shoot hours of video with internal storage and added external storage to boot if needed. The phone also has a headphone jack so you won’t be throwing away your earphones anytime soon. This also means that you can plug it into a stereo old-school style and listen to music or even test the quality of the sound of your raw video. Beyond that, the Moto G Stylus 5G also comes with a charger, a cherished rarity in these days of wireless charging, and a stylus. The stylus is for the business types or those with bigfoot 🦶 fingers. No offense. 😂😂😂 It works well and is snappy so if you also like drawing ✍️ on Adobe Illustrator then the Moto G Stylus 5G has your back. 😉
The Moto G Stylus 5G is currently priced at $499. Mind you, prices could change or shift depending on where you buy the phone from. You can, however, check the current price on Amazon.
