Motorola has flooded the market with Moto G and Moto E which is affordable but not all of them make it to all markets, especially the US. Earlier this year, Motorola expanded its ranks with the latest version of the Stylus-Toting Moto G Stylus which produced some confusion due to previous leaks. It turns out that the company does have a cellphone version that is a little better at work and it comes out as the Moto G Stylus 5G, exclusively for the US this time.
The Moto G Stylus 2021 was launched earlier this year and MOTO G Stylus 5G was not much different, at least mostly. While the latter is only a little heavier, but many specifications, especially the 1080p 6.8 inches are large, similar. It includes a 48MP main camera and 8MP ultra-wide shooter, although the macro camera is not upgraded to 5MP.
It also has the same stylus, of course, as well as the same set of software features that make cellphones useful. It includes applications that appear when you draw stylus and the ability to use the Moto Notes application right on the lock screen. That said, don’t expect Galaxy Note or Galaxy S21 ultra art level since the stick does not come with pressure sensitivity.
The biggest difference is, of course, in the processor since Snapdragon Moto G Stylus 2021 678 is not able to connectivity 5G. Instead, Moto G Stylus 5G runs on the Snapdragon 480 5G chipset and has a larger 5,000 mAh battery to support additional disposal. It also gets 6GB of RAM and 256GB storage even though Motorola also mentions 4GB RAM and 128GB of storage configuration.
Given the processor, which is technically a step down from Snapdragon 678 in performance, it is rather surprising that the Moto G Stylus 5G will sell for $ 399.99 starting June 14. There are more 5G phones using Snapdragon 450 5G which has a much lower price. Tag but, once again, it also doesn’t come with a stylus.
