Best Motorola smartphone: which one to buy January 2022


Are you wondering what the best Motorola smartphones? Do you have to buy a new phone and your choice fell on the well-known American brand? On this page you will find out which are the best Motorola smartphones per month of December 2021, with the best offers available on the market.

How we select the best Motorola smartphones

Unlike other guides that you find on our site, we have decided not to divide the best Motorola models by price range, since there would be some very crowded bands and others deserted. We have therefore selected the most interesting models for the price / quality ratio and following other factors that led us to choose them.

First of all, we remind you that we only select smartphones that we have tested, to be sure that they are up to the situation and valid. We also verify that the technical specifications are always adequate, so no to very low resolution screens, low capacity batteries and antiquated hardware.

The user experience is particularly important, as is the software that must always respond in a reactive way. It is useless to look at the aesthetics if the camera opens in 10 seconds, making you miss the moment. Obviously one of the most important parameters is the quality / price ratio, which on some occasions leads us to insert older products but which, due to the normal price drops in the market, can become particularly attractive.

Motorola Moto G10

In Italy it is available from February 2021 and is available in a single color and a single memory cut, the one from 4-128 GB / The 6.5-inch display (refresh at 90 Hz) and the frames not particularly optimized are reflect on the dimensions (165.22 x 75.73 x 9.19 mm and 200 grams of weight), but the ergonomics are acceptable, thanks also to the plastic back cover. The 5,000 mAh battery, combined with a not exactly energy-intensive chipset, helps to ensure excellent autonomy, which can reach two days with some attention. Four rear cameras, with 48 megapixel (f / 1.7) main sensor, 8 megapixel (f / 2.2) ultra wide angle (FoV 118 degrees), 2 megapixel (f / 2.4) macro and depth sensors.

Motorola Moto G9 Play

Motorola Moto G9 Play arrived in Italy in September 2020 in Forest Green and Sapphire Blue colors, only in the version with 4-64 GB of memory. Once again, the dimensions are important, due to the 6.5-inch screen: 165.21 x 75.73 x 9.18 mm, and 200 grams of weight that are really felt in everyday use. The presence of a 5,000 mAh battery is excellent, capable of providing two days of autonomy even with intense use. On the busiest days, the battery will still take you to the evening, and with a good residual percentage. Placed inside a square element is the rear camera, with 48 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.7) with macro sensor and 2 megapixel depth sensor (both with f / 2.4 aperture). The photos are of good quality, even if they are not up to the best mid-range for sale on the market.

Motorola Moto G30

It is available in our country since February 2021, where it can only be purchased in the Phantom Black color and in the cut with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. Abundant measurements due to a 6.5-inch screen and clearly visible bezels: 165.22 x 75.73 x 9.14 mm and 200 grams weight. The plastic shell improves ergonomics which remains at the limit. With 5,000 mAh the battery is one of the strengths of the Moto G30 which can reach two days of autonomy on a single charge, and which always arrives in the evening even on the most demanding days. Four rear camera sensors, with the main one from 64 megapixel (f / 1.7), flanked by an 8 megapixel (f / 2.2) wide angle (FoV 118 degrees) and two 2 megapixel (f / 2.4) sensors for macro and depth of field. In the front part, on the other hand, inside a V notch, there is a 13 megapixel sensor. Good photos, thanks to numerous software features, in line with the market segment.

Motorola Moto G9 Plus

It is on sale from the end of September 2020 in two different colors, Navy Blue and Blush Gold, with a single memory cut. The 6.81-inch screen has a particular impact on the dimensions: 169.98 x 78.1 x 9.69 mm and 223 grams of weight. Also difficult to keep in your pocket, let alone use with one hand. The battery is flawless, with its 5.00 mAh it can guarantee excellent autonomy. You can reach two days even with a very demanding use, and in the most stressful days you always arrive in the evening with a good residual charge. Four rear cameras, with 64 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.8) and an 8 megapixel (f / 2.2) ultra wide angle (FoV 118 degrees). The photos are of good quality, even if the algorithm for night shots is not the best. Substantially useless, as in other similar solutions, the two 2 megapixel sensors for macro and portraits.

Motorola Moto G 5G Plus

Presented during the summer of 2020, Motorola Moto G 5G Plus is available only in Surfing Blue color and with only one memory cut. Far from compact, also due to the 6.7-inch screen, the dimensions. In fact, the smartphone measures 168 x 74 x 9 millimeters and 207 grams of weight. The double hole in the screen for the dual camera stands out. The generous dimensions have made it possible to house a 5,000 mAh battery which allows for good autonomy. You will always arrive at the end of the day and with normal use you will have no problem reaching two days. The 20 watt TurboPower recharge is worth noting. The rear camera is classic, with four elements: 48 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.9), 8 megapixel ultra wide angle (FoV 118 degrees) (f / 2.2), 5 megapixel MacroVision (f / 2.2) and sensor for portraits from 2 megapixels. On average, the photos obtained, although slightly lower than other models in this price range.

Motorola Edge

It was announced at the end of April 2020 and arrived in Italy the following month in two memory variants and two different colors, Solar Black and Midnight Magenta. Motorola Edge is felt in the hand, also because of the 21: 9 screen but the weight is all in all contained. The form factor helps improve grip but actually makes it harder to reach the top of the screen. Very good autonomy, thanks to the 4,500 mAh battery that allows you to arrive in the evening with at least 7 hours, with the screen refresh rate set at 90 Hz. With some tricks it is not difficult to reach two days of autonomy. The triple rear camera is not crazy even if the quality is more than acceptable. We find a main sensor from 64 megapixel (f / 1.8), one ultra wide angle (FoV 117 degrees) from 16 megapixel (f / 2.2) and an 8 megapixel 2x optical zoom (f / 2.4), which is accompanied by a ToF sensor for depth of field.

Motorola Moto G100

Motorola Moto G100 arrived in Europe in late March 2021, but is actually a rebrand of Motorola Edge S launched a few months earlier in China. Far from compact, given the 6.7-inch screen, the dimensions of 168.38 x 73.97 x 9.63, combined with the weight of 215 grams, make it difficult to use with one hand, especially for the weight . The 5,000 mAh battery guarantees excellent autonomy, a practice now in this price range. And with 20-watt fast charging, restoring energy is fast. Good camera, with 64 megapixel main sensor (f / 1.7) which is flanked by a wide angle (FoV 121 degrees) and two sensors of lesser use. Good, more than the average in this category, the photos taken.

Motorola Edge Plus

It was presented in Italy at the end of April 2020 but it was necessary to wait another month to be able to buy it. A single memory variant and two colors, Smoky Sangria and Thunder Gray. With a 6.7-inch screen, the dimensions are anything but compact: 161.64 x 71.4 x 9.3 mm and 208 grams of weight. Despite everything, however, the 21: 9 form factor contributes to good ergonomics, penalizing only the contents placed at the top of the screen. The curvature of the screen must please, because it leads to some compromises on visibility. We are used to top of the range that struggle to arrive in the evening but Motorola Edge Plus amazes: you can get to 8-9 hours of screen on, a full day even with exaggerated use, two days with normal use without particular attention. Difficult to do better thanks to the 5,000 mAh battery. The rear camera features a 108 megapixel (f / 1.8) main sensor, 16 megapixel (f / 2.2) ultra wide angle (FoV 117 degrees), 3X optical zoom with 8 megapixel OIS (f / 2.4) and ToF sensor for depth of field. Good photos but we could have expected much more: good macros while the other two cameras show noise in the shaded areas. Night mode is just enough but with software updates it can get better.
