The Motorola Moto G (2023) is a budget-friendly device offering 128GB of storage, a large 6.5-inch LCD screen, and a substantial 5000mAh battery capacity, which is likely to provide a satisfactory battery life. It runs on Android and features a main camera with 48 megapixels. The camera performance, however, is not highly regarded for both stills and videos, being rated as poor. Built with plastic, it may not feel as premium as some alternatives, but it sustains a good screen-to-body ratio with a 720 x 1600 display that supports a 120Hz refresh rate. The device has a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is becoming less common, but it lacks high-end features such as wireless charging and a high-performance processor. It's suitable if you're looking for an affordable, functional phone with decent battery life and a large display, but not if you prioritize top-tier camera quality or performance. Give Feedback

Android Authority

Ryan Haines | September 2023
"If you're after Motorola's simplest, most affordable 5G experience, you'll find it in the Moto G 5G (2023). It covers the basics nicely and holds onto creature comforts like a headphone jack and expandable storage, though Motorola's update promise is still lacking and there's still no NFC for contactless payments. An upgraded 120Hz refresh rate, decent primary camera, and battery-sipping processor help to make the Moto G 5G (2023)'s price cut even more valuable."
