Motorola has officially launched the Moto G Stylus 5G. The phone is the successor to Moto G Stylus which was launched merely a few months ago in January. The Moto G lineup has always been a good choice when it comes to mid-range budget Android smartphones. The phone is priced at $399, which is a great upgrade with 5G connectivity considering the price tag.
The Moto G Stylus 5G has been upgraded with a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 480, one of the most affordable powerful mid-range chipset providing 5G connectivity. The phone starts with 4 GB ram and 128 GB storage with configurations upto 6GB ram and 256GB internal storage. Motorola has also provided it with a microSD card slot which is quite expected in this range. Although the phone packs a massive 5,000 mAh battery, it does not support fast charging and supports a 10W charger. The stylus comes with a clicker much like the Galaxy Note series but it does not support features like navigation control due to the lack of Bluetooth LE.
Other features of the phone are identical to its LTE model. It comes with the same camera layout and screen resolution. It has a 6.8-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel with a 60Hz refresh rate which is quite a blow considering the price tag. The rear of the phone fashions a quad-camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultrawide, 5MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor. While the front of the phone features a 16MP camera. Lastly, the phone features a rear mounting fingerprint scanner with the logo of Motorola branded over it.
Motorola promises a 2-year update service. The phone will be available for purchase, on carriers, and unlocked starting June 14 in the United States. You can purchase the unlocked version from Best Buy, Walmart, B&H Photo, Amazon.com, and Motorola.com. The device will also be launching on AT&T, Cricket, T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, Boost Mobile, Xfinity Mobile, and Spectrum Mobile. Motorola should be making the phone globally available in a few weeks. Though the price might be a little high, but considering the 5G range, stylus, and the stock Android experience the phone is worth it for mid-range users.
