The CES is usually not a big show for smartphones, but that hasn’t stopped Motorola from giving the entire Moto G lineup a big refresh for the beginning of the year, along with the new version of Motorola’s most affordable 5G phone.

The new Moto G family and the new Moto One 5G Ace will mark Motorola’s brand range New phones for basically every price bracket under $ 400.

Motorola revives the Moto G Play, which starts at $ 170, As the most affordable handset of the bunch, and while it is very basic, it makes the most of Required cover. You a 6.5 inch 1600 x 720 (yes it is HD, not full HD) display, A Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 chip, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB storage, a microSD card slot and a very large 5,000 mAh battery.

The Motorola logo also has a fingerprint sensor, which looks like a dual camera, but is actually One-The Moto G Play has a 13-MP main cam and 2-MP depth cam to help with portrait mode shots. And to finish everything off, the Moto G Play has a relatively lightweight matte plastic with some mild water resistance, which means Small spills or showers.

Next we come what may be my favorite phone In the bunch, the Moto G Power, which retains the 5,000 mAh battery used in the Moto G Play, but adds Slightly better specs. Depending on where you get it from, the G Power will be available in two configurations: a $ 200 model with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage or a $ 250 model with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

Regardless of what you configure, G Power includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor, a slightly larger 6.6-inch 1600 x 720 display, a microSD card tray, and three rear cams (48-MP main, 2-MP macro) and 2 -MP depth cam). To me, gee power The budget hits the sweet spot and is able to cover most of the bases without adding a lot of extra frills, although I would have liked to see that Motorola include an ultra-wide or telephoto cam instead of that macro lens.

Then there is Moto G stylus, which Starts at $ 300 and tries its best Should be Samsung’s more affordable option for high-end Galaxy Note Line. This is because a stylus is included (dashed inside a convenient slot on the side of the phone), with no buttons or additional wireless features like the one you get from Samsung’s S-Pen.

TO Support all your drawing and notes-Keeping in mind the needs, Moto has refreshed the Moto Notes app with GS, bouncing the size of the G stylus display with a 6.8-inch FHD + screen.Tiles is also getting a small bump in performance With live power A Snapdragon 678 chip, and 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage standard. However, with a 4,000 mAh battery (and larger screen), the G Stylus’ battery life is not expected to be quite as good as its less expensive siblings.

However, the G stylus gets three real cameras: a 48-MP main cam, 8-MP ultra-wide cam, and 2-MP macro cam (plus a fourth depth sensor). And a instead The rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, both the G Power and the G Stylus, gets a power button and a side-mounted fingerprint reader located just below the volume rocker.

Finally, while it is not technically part of the Moto G family, the new Moto One 5G Ace is also. Starting at $ 400, the Moto One 5 Ace is now Motorola’s cheapest 5G phone and $ 100 less than the original. Moto one 5g (Which was last launched), However it comes with the caveat that it only supports sub 6Ghz 5G and not fast mmWave 5g. Apart from that one little detailOther Moto Moto 5G Ace specs Looks good enough for the money. this Snapdragon comes with a 750G chip, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage and a large 5,000mAh battery, some retailers also offer a model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.

Up front, a 6.7-inch 2400 x 1080 FHD + display and a 16-MP selfie cam (which also gets a G Stylus), while the rear camera setup is similar to the G Stylus, With 48-MP main cam, 8-MP, ultra-wide cam and 2-MP macro cam.

All told, with the new Moto One 5G Ace And the Moto G family, it seems that Motorola wants to grow even more in the budget and mid-range phone market. The moto may have made a phone too much, because if you look at their specs and features, there are not as many differences between models as you might expect.

but All these phones have some good company, Commonly takes clean on Android, including a 3.5mm audio jack retention, and improves a lot of native applications and features, Such as Moto’s night camera mode.

However, I still find it strange that while Moto One 5G has support for NFC, which requires you to use an app like Google Pay, Motorola, which connects NFC to any less expensive Moto G handset Used to be. But what can be even more disturbing is that all these phones will run Android 11, not Android 10, which was officially launched in September. While Moto says that it will provide an update to Android 11 sometime in the future, it is the only major Android update scheduled to receive any of these phones, which will be available on these phones for over a year. A real bummer for anyone thinking about keeping time.

But if you are looking for a new budget phone, Moto Giving you a bunch of options, the year is kicking off. The new Moto G family and Moto One Ace 5G will be unlocked from all available retailers starting January 14.
