6 reasons the Moto G71 5G isn’t the best 5G phone under 20K


Motorola launched a new Moto G71 5G smartphone in India earlier yesterday. Launched in Europe a few months ago, the mid-range phone has a 6.43-inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 695 SoC, 6GB RAM, 50MP camera and a 5000mAh battery for a price of Rs. 18,999 in India. So should you buy this new 5G phone at this price or go for another one as there are many choices available in the segment? Let’s find out here!

Reasons why the Moto G71 5G isn’t the best 5G phone under 20K

We’ve analyzed the features and specs of the Moto G71 5G and compared it to other phones in the segment, and here are some points that prove it might not be the best 5G phone at this budget.

Old design

Motorola offers this phone in the mid-range, but the design language of the phone somehow resembles that of its other budget G-series phones. That same glossy plastic case, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor in the Moto logo, it all looks outdated in 2022. On the front, it’s also the same perforated design with a thick chin at the bottom.

60 Hz display

Surprisingly, Motorola has decided to go for the typical 60Hz display, when others offer displays with a refresh rate of 90Hz or even 120Hz in this segment. Although it is a large 6.4-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. But the refresh rate should also be at least 90 Hz considering the value of the phone. Even some of Moto’s own mid-range phones from last year have 90Hz displays.

No card slot

Motorola has decided to remove the microSD card slot from the phone this time. Previously it offered the hybrid slot to provide dual SIM and microSD functionality, but this time you cannot expand the storage on the Moto g71.

mono speaker

The phone comes with a single speaker on the bottom, which is a real let down for a midrange phone. Most mid-range phones these days come with stereo speakers.

No 4K recording

Moto G71 5G can only record videos up to 1080p resolution. While most other phones in the category offer 4K video recording. Even Moto’s own phones in the same price segment offer 4k recording.

Bluetooth 5.0

Many phones these days come with the latest Bluetooth 5.1 and 5.2, but Moto still offered the older version, Bluetooth 5.0. Even last year’s Moto G series phone has Bluetooth 5.1.

Reasons to buy:

Apart from all these reasons, the Moto G71 5G also has some good features. As mentioned, this is the first phone in India with Snapdragon 695 chipset. This is a 6nm chipset with Kryo 660 cores clocked up to 2.2GHz. This chipset supports 13 bands of 5g, just like the Moto g71 5g.

Apart from these features, it packs 6 GB RAM with RAM booster to 2 GB RAM and 128 GB UFS 2.1 storage. Like other Moto phones, it also has an Android UI and a large battery with support for fast charging.
