The best Motorola Moto G 5G (2023) cases:

Editor’s note: We will update this list of the best Motorola Moto G (2023) cases as more become available. We also have the best cases for the Moto G Play (2023) 

Motorola textured protective case


Motorola’s official case offers a textured backside, making it easier to grip the phone. It also features a rugged, shock-resistant build to help withstand drops without being too bulky. It comes in three colors, and you can rest assured that the case will fit the exact dimensions of the Moto G (2023).

OtterBox Commuter Series Lite case


OtterBox is one of the most trustworthy names regarding drop protection. This solid case has a soft inside and a hard outside to help absorb impacts while keeping a low profile. It comes in both black and green and with OtterBox’s lifetime warranty.

JXVM dual-layer case with screen protector


Most of us will buy a screen protector separately to go with a case, so why not get a protective case that already has one built-in? The JXVM for Moto G 5G (2023) comes with a tempered glass screen protector that fits snugly into the dual-layered case, so you don’t have to worry about aligning it straight. The backside also features military-grade protection and rubber grips around the side to keep your phone from slipping out of hand. It also comes in a variety of bright colors.

Cresee clear case


If you like having a transparent case that doesn’t cover your phone, the Cresee clear case is a great option. It’s flexible, easy to slip in or off, fits snugly with precise port cutouts, and features raised edges to protect the camera/screen from scratches.

HAOTP PU Leather Wallet Case


Not many wallets or folio cases are available for the Moto G 5G (2023) yet, but the HAOTP PU case is one of the best so far, so long as you don’t mind the butterfly pattern design. It features three card slots, a magnetic clip, a kickstand for watching movies, and a wrist strap to carry your phone.

Poetic Revolution rugged case


Poetic Revolution is known for making rugged cases with heavy-duty protection for your Moto G 5G. This one adheres to the military durability standards and adds 20ft drop protection. You also get a built-in stand that doubles as a grip and a front-frame screen guard. It may be bulky, but nothing will damage your phone.

That’s it for our list of the best cases for the Motorola Moto G 5G (2023). Be sure to check back as more cases are released for an up-to-date selection.


No, a Moto G 5G case won’t fit a Moto G Stylus 5G because the two models have different dimensions, and button placements.

The Moto G 5G (2023) has a basic glass screen, so a screen protector would be a good idea. It’s a small investment that can guard against deeper scratches and cracks from accidental drops.

Motorola Moto G 2024 Review

Our Verdict

With various upgrades including a waterproof design, great cameras and stock Android, the new Moto G 2024 is a great affordable phone. The device is still a bit chunky and it’s a shame to see the stereo speakers gone. It’s worth opting for the model with 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM. Now with a price cut to £149, the Moto G 3rd-gen is the best budget phone you can buy.

As expected, Motorola has announced a new version of the Moto G budget phone and we were at the London launch event to check it out. We grabbed a sample at the event so here’s our full and in-depth Motorola Moto G 2024 review. See: Best budget phones 2024.

Update 18/05/16: Motorola yesterday unveiled the new Moto G and G Plus for 2024, and has therefore reduced the price of this older handset to £149. Read more about the brand-new Moto G in our Moto G4 review.

The Moto G series of phones from Motorola has got a little confusing with this being the third generation but there being four different versions previously. This is mostly because of Motorola adding and taking away 4G LTE support. This means the phone goes by various names such as Moto G 2024, Moto G3 and Moto G 3rd gen.

Nevertheless, this is the Moto G for 2024 and Motorola is under more pressure for the best budget phone with fresh competition from the likes of the  EE Harrier Mini and Vodafone Smart Ultra 6. Here are our first impressions of the new Moto G.

Moto G 2024 (3rd gen) review: Price

Update: The price has been dropped to £149 (on sale for £129 at the time of writing) on the Moto Maker meaning that it now fits within our best budget smartphone chart. Prices below were correct at initial launch.

Motorola has been king of budget phones for a long time and the Moto G has proven to be a difficult device to beat. The news of the third generation Moto G is exciting but the phone is now more expensive at £179 for the cheaper model and £209 for the higher capacity. 

See also: Moto G 2024 vs Moto G 2014 comparison review.

Our best budget phones group test has an upper limit of £150 so really the Moto G is no longer a cheap phone. That doesn’t mean it isn’t good value, though.

However, that price is if you use the Moto Maker (see below) but if you go to retailers like Amazon, Clove and Mobile Fun you’ll only need to pay £159 (or less) which is more like it but still not quite budget.

Moto G 2024 (3rd gen) review: Design and build

Once again, the Moto G looks pretty similar even to the original but understandably closer to the style of the 2014 model. It’s a good looking phone, especially for the budget end of the market. It is a little thicker and heavier, though, at 11.6mm and 157g.

Motorola has made the Moto G look more stylish with the metal strip which houses the rear camera and the iconic dimpled logo. The front slots are flush but unfortunately Motorola has removed the stereo speakers. The recessed slots also provide a place for dirt to collect.

There’s a new texture to the rear cover and the shape looks similar the Moto X but the Moto G is, of course, made of plastic. Motorola Shell colours include Black, Navy, Cabernet, Golden Yellow, Lime, Cherry, Blue, Turqouise, Raspberry and Chalk. There are also Flip Shells, too.

As you can see from the photos, our review sample is the black model with red accent colour and the Cabernet rear cover. The rear cover isn’t the most comfortable around with its diagonal ridges but the curved shape helps.

IPX7 waterproofing which was rumoured turned out to be spot on so you won’t have to worry if you knock over your drink or drop the Moto G down the toilet. The rating means the phone will survive being submerged in up to one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.It’s a feature you won’t find on other budget phones.

In our dunk test we did find water gets underneath the cover but the rubber seals stop water getting where it should be – we recommend removing the cover and drying everything if you do submerge the phone.

A major new feature in this area is that the Moto G 2024 is available to order via the Moto Maker meaning you can customise the phone with different front colours, rear covers, accent colours, engraving and storage capacities.

The new Moto G feels nice in the hand and gives the impression of being more premium than previous generations. It certainly feels like a mid-range device rather than budget.

Moto G 2024 (3rd gen) review: Hardware and specs

The screen of the Moto G remains at 5in and although we had our fingers crossed, the resolution hasn’t been bumped to Full HD (1080×1920). Instead it remains at 720p so the Vodafone Ultra 6 outclasses it here with Full HD at a lower price. Although the display is still 720p, it’s still good quality and it has good brightness and colour reproduction.

As you might expect, the processor has also been upgraded. This time there’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chip (1.4GHz quad-core) which is the same as found in the new Moto E 4G.

That’s a little disappointing on the face of it but performance is nice and smooth regardless of this and the benchmark results which don’t make for impressive reading on the whole. It beats the previous model but gets outdone by the cheaper Moto E in three tests – as does the £125 Vodafone Smart Ultra 6.

The amount of memory has been doubled to 2GB of RAM but you’ll only get that if you buy the 16GB model- the 8GB model has 1GB of RAM. There’s still a Micro-SD card slot and it can take cards up to 32GB in size.

Upgrades continue with a new 13Mp camera, up from 8Mp which is impressive for a budget smartphone. In fact, it’s the same camera from the Nexus 6 (which Motorola made) with improvements such as a new lens and an IR filter. There’s a dual-LED flash, too and video can be shot at up to 1080p or 720p for slow motion.

The front camera has also been increased in terms of resolution, from 2- to 5Mp with a wide angle lens making it able to offer much higher quality selfies.

As usual, the default for the main camera is 16:9 meaning you’ll get 9.7Mp so switching to 4:3 will make use of the full complement of pixels. Another default is no touch to focus which is a little annoying but you can switch it on even though it’s a little tricky to use. We found the camera snaps quickly and quality of still photos is generally excellent. Video is also good, helped by the OIS, but it nothing overly special. Check out our samples below.

Camera test with HDR on

Camera test macro

There are no major frills when it comes to connectivity – there’s still no NFC which is a shame but the Moto G 2024 does have that all-important 4G LTE support.

The battery comes in at 2470mAh but Motorola didn’t mention the TurboCharge feature found on the new Moto X which is supposedly even faster than the Galaxy S6. The firm claims 24 hours of mixed use from the Moto G.

Even without a large battery (which is non-removable despite the rear cover coming off), we found battery life to be excellent. In our benchmark test the Moto G managed six hours and 29 minutes with a score of 2596. That’s not far off the Galaxy S6 which lasted for six hours and 53 minutes.

Moto G 2024 (3rd gen) review: Software

There’s not a great deal to say about software as Motorola is sticking to offering a very stock Android and the Moto G comes pre-loaded with version 5.1.1 Lollipop.

We’re seeing more and more Android manufacturers going with a vanilla user experience and we like it. It’s not a completely Nexus-like software setup though as Motorola does add some of its own apps – that’s not a bad thing though.

The firm adds things like Moto Assist, Moto Display and Moto Actions which are now bundles into one app simple named Moto. You can easily make sure the phone stays quiet when you’re in bed or automatically change settings based on your location.

Actions mean you can ‘double karate chop’ to launch the torch and twist to launch the camera app. Display will show you notifications when the phone detects movement and you can select which apps are allowed and how much of the notification is shown.

Apart from Migrate which helps you move content from a previous phone, the Moto G is essentially stock Android meaning you have a nice blank canvas with which to customise.

Review Del Móvil Motorola Moto G62 5G, Barato Y Con Buena Pantalla


Pantalla de 120 Hz

Conectividad 5G

Gran duración de batería


Rendimiento del montón

Carga lenta de 15 W

La cámara puede mejorar

Nuestro veredicto

El Moto G62 es un teléfono 5G barato, sólido y relativamente bien equipado. La combinación de una pantalla de 120 Hz, conectividad 5G y un chip Snapdragon son un buen tándem para 2023, aunque encontrarás mejores alternativas en móviles 4G. 

Son muchos los teléfonos móviles que Motorola tiene englobados bajo la Serie G con más de una docena de modelos de precio asequible cuyo valor puede oscilar entre los 149 de los más asequibles, y los 399 € del tope de gama. 

El modelo que hemos tenido ocasión de probar es el Moto G62 5G con 6 GB de RAM y 128 GB de almacenamiento. Tiene características que lo hacen bastante premium en facetas que consideramos clave como son la pantalla, el rendimiento y la autonomía. Veamos lo que da de sí. 

Diseño y calidad de construcción

Cuerpo de plástico que repele las huellas

Mantiene conector de auriculares de 3,5 mm

Sensor de huellas en botón lateral de encendido

Incluye funda de silicona

Durante años, Motorola ha sido la marca especializada en la fabricación de terminales móviles asequibles que aunque no logran destacar por un aspecto concreto, para bien o para mal ofrecen un perfil muy equilibrado en todos los aspectos. 

El Moto G62 cuenta con un diseño que alcanza ese punto de móvil atractivo con líneas redondeadas, como se aprecia en el conjunto de cámaras traseras, que convierten al móvil en una gran elección sin llegar a ser especialmente ligero o con poco grosor.

De hecho, pesa 184 gramos, y su grosor asciende a los 8,6 mm por lo que no destaca en ninguno de estos factores. Lo bueno aquí es que no resulta incómodo de manejar para tratarse de un móvil con una gran pantalla, totalmente plana, de 6,5 pulgadas. 

El material utilizado para el acabado del cuerpo es de plástico robusto, con un panel trasero ligeramente curvado con tonos en gris oscuro y azul frosted que impiden que hagan su aparición las huellas dactilares de nuestros dedos. 

Motorola además hace otra puntualización aquí, y es que este tipo de recubrimiento aplicado a la trasera también repele el agua, lo que significa que si lo utilizas ocasionalmente bajo la lluvia, no tendrás problema, aunque no tiene una clasificación IP. 

El sensor de huellas digitales se encuentra situado en el lateral derecho, justo encima del botón de encendido de la pantalla, con una ligera muesca hacia adentro que facilita su localización al tacto sin tener que hacerlo visualmente. 

El control de volumen está situado en el otro lateral, mientras que en la parte inferior tenemos el conector tipo USB C, la salida de auriculares de 3,5 mm y uno de los altavoces que  brindan un sonido estéreo adecuado para la visualización en modo horizontal. 

Por el precio que pagas no puedes esperar mucho más, y lejos de ofrecer colores llamativos que puedan atraer a un público más joven, aquí Motorola ha decidido mantenerse conservador pensando en que si lo tradicional funciona bien para qué cambiar. 


Panel LCD FHD+ de 6,5 pulgadas

Frecuencia de actualización de 120 Hz

Precisión del color sólido

Motorola ha cogido el hábito de equipar algunos de sus teléfonos más asequibles con pantallas de baja calidad de tan solo 720p en los últimos años, con lo que nos gusta ver que la del Moto G62 asciende por fin a calidad Full HD+ con resolución de 1080 x 2400 píxeles. 

Realmente hay una gran diferencia en la usabilidad del teléfono, puesto que la definición es mucho mayor y es algo que se aprecia al manejar cualquier tipo de contenido. Todavía es un panel LCD IPS, por lo que los colores no son impactantes y los negros tienen un tono gris en comparación con los OLED. 

Pero sinceramente, es bastante agradable a la vista y una vez que subes el nivel de brillo al máximo, conseguimos alcanzar según nuestras mediciones los 438 nits con el brillo automático desactivado, suficientes para manejarla en exteriores. 

Sin duda alguna también ayuda el hecho de que Motorola haya implementado una frecuencia de actualización de 120 Hz, un valor muy generoso para tratarse de un móvil de su gama que notarás al desplazarte por los menús, ver el contenido web o manejar juegos. 

En términos de precisión del color, el modo de visualización predeterminado Saturado genera un perfil ligeramente exagerado de los colores que se adapta mejor al espacio de color DCI P3 más saturado.

Cambiar al modo natural alternativo produce unos resultados que son más precisos en el espacio sRGB más establecido, con una cobertura de gama del 97,1 % y una puntuación Delta E media sólida de 1,19. En resumen, la visualización es precisa con tonos vivos.

Rendimiento y especificaciones

Procesador Snapdragon 480+ con 5G

RAM a elegir de 4 o 6 GB

Almacenamiento de solo 128 GB

Ranura microSD para ampliación

El procesador elegido para el Moto G62, como parece lógico, es humilde y conservador, aunque esto no le impide que pueda competir y plantar cara a otros teléfonos de similar rango de precios. 

Se trata del chipset Snapdragon 480+ 5G, el mismo procesador que hemos visto en otros teléfonos como el Nokia XR20 o el Oppo A54 5G, aunque con un par de núcleos que han sido overclockeados que permiten arrojar algo más de acción. 

En mi caso he tenido la oportunidad de probar la versión de teléfono con 6 GB de memoria RAM, con lo que los resultados siempre serán ligeramente mejores que si compras la configuración de teléfono con 4 GB. El almacenamiento disponible es solo de 128 GB. 

Con esto, obtuvimos una puntuación multinúcleos en Geekbench de 1712 puntos superando a los rivales que hemos mencionado, así como al mismísimo Poco M4 Pro 5G con su chip MediaTek Dimensity 812. Arroja más o menos lo mismo que el Redmi Note 11 con el Snapdragon 680. 

En términos de gráficos y manejando la GPU los resultados son más impresionantes, con puntuaciones ligeramente más altas que lo que ofrecen sus inmediatos competidores como el Poco M4 Pro 5G, y mucho más altas que el Redmi Note 11. 


Otro extra notable del Moto G62 es su conectividad 5G soportada. Aunque en 2023 no es especialmente sorprendente ver como un teléfono de solo 299 € puede garantizar este tipo de conexión, aquí Motorola la ofrece de serie. 

Puedes echar un vistazo a nuestro ranking de los mejores teléfonos móviles 5G baratos que puedes encontrar en el mercado, tanto de gama media como de entrada para que puedas elegir según tu presupuesto. 


Principal de 50 MP

Ultra gran angular de 8 MP

Sensor macro de 2 MP

El G62 viene equipado con una cámara principal de 50 MP que a pesar de resultar bastante corriente, incluye un sensor de 1/ 2,76” con el que es posible capturar buenas fotografías. Eso sí, no tiene estabilizador de imagen OIS. 

Le acompaña un ultra gran angular algo modesto de 8 MP y otro sensor macro de 2 MP que apenas notarás que está ahí. Ya en el frontal, el sensor para fotografías selfie es de 16 MP  y está situado en el centro de la parte superior de la pantalla, ubicación bastante natural. 

A efectos de especificaciones, es muy similar a lo ofrecido por el Moto G22, con una cámara principal que es la más capaz de todas al capturar imágenes sólidas con detalles decentes. De hecho, las tomas reproducen un color bastante significativo con una buena iluminación. 

Cuando pasamos a interiores, los detalles realmente sufren por mantenerse en alza y el fluido se cuela fácilmente y hace su aparición. Las tomas en modo nocturno son pobres, con mucho grano y un tono que por lo general se muestra descolorido. 

La combinación de un sensor pequeño, sin estabilizador OIS y sin poder de procesamiento de imágenes avanzado, hacen que los resultados sean bastante mejorables. El gran angular de 8 MP carece de detalles en sus tomas. 

En cualquier caso, Motorola tiene muy optimizado los tonos de los diferentes sensores, algo en lo que los móviles baratos suelen salir muy perjudicados al no conseguir que haya uniformidad en los tonos y fotografías capturadas con cada uno de ellos. 

Los selfies con la cámara frontal de 16 MP tampoco son muy impresionantes, con un aspecto generalmente borroso que no permite definir bien las siluetas de las personas, así como mostrando una paleta de colores un tanto descolorida.

En general, para publicaciones en redes sociales, a buen seguro que será suficiente por su buena iluminación, pero el G62 sale perjudicado en lo que se refiere a posibilidades fotográficas con este tipo de sensores. 

En lo que año tras año Motorola se ha esforzado en el apartado fotográfico es en ofrecer diversidad de captura de fotografías. Prueba de ello es el modo de captura dual con la que puedes compaginar ambos sensores y jugar con la imagen que deseas que se muestre más grande. 

También se mantiene dentro del apartado de más opciones de fotos la posibilidad de usar la fotografía con color selectivo, algo que nos permite seleccionar el color a destacar y dejar el resto de la fotografía en blanco y negro. Esto permite obtener resultados como el de la imagen.

En lo que se refiere al manejo de la interfaz de la cámara, es sencillo e intuitivo, pero cuando te sales de las funciones principales, la cosa puede mejorar. El modo Pro, por ejemplo, tiene un sistema algo confuso a la hora de modificar el ISO, la apertura o el enfoque, a diferencia de otros modelos que muestran una rueda de valores fáciles de modificar.

En cualquier caso, para el modo de uso que harán la mayoría de los usuarios con los ajustes predefinidos, las funciones ofrecidas en primera instancia son muy válidas y sencillas de manejar, siempre que no tengas que adentrarte en los modos avanzados.  

Autonomía y carga

Batería de 5000 mAh de capacidad

Buena autonomía para superar 2 días de uso

Carga muy lenta de solo 15 W

El Moto G62 viene con una batería grande de 5000 mAh. Si la combinas con un hardware como el que ya hemos analizado, suficiente para la gama de entrada pero sin grandes pretensiones, obtenemos a cambio un consumo de energía muy reducido.

Esto nos confirma que podremos superar fácilmente los dos días de uso antes de tener que recargar su batería, lo cual es algo a valorar dado que los móviles con una frecuencia de actualización de pantalla de 120 Hz suelen ser más gastones. 

Con el modo automático predeterminado activado, cabe esperar que los tiempos mejoran para alargar más si cabe la autonomía del dispositivo. De hecho, según nuestras pruebas de reproducción de vídeo continua, es uno de los que más optimiza su tiempo de uso con cerca de 17 horas y 36 minutos. 

Con contrapartida, tienes que estar dispuesto a pasar por algo el dato de la velocidad de carga de su batería, ya que como ya le sucedía al Moto G22, cuenta en la caja con un cargador de tan solo 15 W, con lo que se queda muy atrás frente a sus competidores. 

Prueba de ello es ver como media hora de carga nos deparó un porcentaje de carga de tan solo el 21 %, muy lejos de los valores ofrecidos por el Redmi Note 11 o el Poco M4 Pro, ambos con una modalidad de carga que duplica la del Moto G62, de 33 W. 

Dicho esto, una carga completa de la batería del móvil se demoró hasta la cifra de las 2 horas y 44 minutos, un valor que queda muy lejos de lo que nos tienen acostumbrados algunos móviles, eso sí, de gama superior. También la del Realme 9 Pro es de 33 W. 

Software y programas

El apartado de software y personalización siempre ha sido una apuesta segura por parte de Motorola, ya que tienen el buen gusto de añadir las Moto Actions, una serie de acciones a las que el móvil responde ante una situación, como pueda ser la linterna tras sacudir el teléfono. 

En esta ocasión, el Moto G62 viene con la versión de Android 12, con escasos widget y algunos fondos de pantalla de buen gusto que hacen que rápidamente puedas identificar al terminal como un dispositivo de Motorola. 

La compañía añade además la función de pantalla ‘Always-on’ o siempre encendida, algo que resulta sorprendente de ver en móviles de su categoría de precios. Sin duda, es un factor que el público valora muy positivamente a la hora de consultar la hora o datos de interés. 

Y es que la mayoría de los ajustes asociados a Motorola permanecen reunidos bajo la aplicación Moto, que proporciona un centro codificado por colores práctico (y, de nuevo, manejado con buen gusto) para todas las necesidades de personalización. 

Precio y disponibilidad

El Moto G62 está disponible en España y Europa a un precio recomendado de 269 € si optas por el modelo con 4 GB de RAM y 128 GB de almacenamiento, o bien, de 299 € si decides adquirir el de 6 GB de RAM. Solo hay una opción de almacenamiento.

Afortunadamente, dispone de ranura de tarjetas de doble SIM con ampliación de memoria a través de microSD, de manera que siempre puedes optar por ampliar sus especificaciones de forma sencilla adquiriendo una tarjeta compatible. 

Este precio sitúa al Moto G62 en el entorno de otros grandes teléfonos como son el Realme 9i (presentado a comienzos de 2023) o el Redmi Note 11. Otras serias alternativas son el Oppo A54 5G o el Galaxy A22 5G. 

Echa un vistazo a nuestro ranking de los mejores teléfonos móviles baratos, así como todos aquellos teléfonos baratos que contemplan la conectividad 5G.


Aunque a simple vista pueda parecer un teléfono bastante estándar, si echamos un vistazo a nuestro alrededor, veremos que es posible que tengas dificultades para encontrar otro teléfono que te brinde exactamente lo que hace el Moto G62.

Si bien no destaca en ningún área en particular, la combinación de una pantalla de 120 Hz, un procesador Snapdragon 480+ bastante actual, conectividad 5G y todo bajo un precio de venta de 269 € que francamente es difícil de conseguir. 

Los materiales en los acabados son bastante resistentes y la interfaz de usuario táctil de Motorola continúa siendo la mejor dentro de los considerados teléfonos asequibles. Nos gusta además la gran autonomía y lo bien que se ve la pantalla. 

Como puntos de mejora debemos puntualizar los 15 W de velocidad de carga, que nos resultan escasos para 2023, así como el complemento de cámaras que acompañan a la principal, sensores que por calidad no demuestran estar a la altura de lo que puede ofrecer el de 50 MP.

Moto G 4G (2024) Review

Our Verdict

If you’re looking for a cheap 4G smartphone then the Moto E 4G is the best deal on the market right now. If you would rather have a cheap dual-SIM phone with 3G connectivity then the mark 3 Moto G is your best bet. But the new Moto G 4G for 2024 is not the best phone for either customer, and its larger, higher-resolution screen, marginally improved photography credentials and stereo sound are not enough for us to turn a blind eye to its £60 higher price, slower hardware and missing software features.

Best cheap 4G phones 2024 and best budget phones 2024. 

The third Moto G (that would be the model with a 5in screen, 3G connectivity and dual-SIM functionality) is to this date the best budget phone you can buy in the UK. This new Moto G 4G is in essence the same phone with a couple of tweaks, so why is it suddenly so bad, and why have we marked it down on value? See also: Motorola Moto G 2024 hands-on review and Motorola Moto X Style review: Hands-on with the Moto X Style mid-range phone.

See also: Moto G 2024 vs Moto G 2014 comparison review.

The problem becomes clear when you take into account the type of customer looking to buy this smartphone. If you want a cheap 4G smartphone then this is not the best Moto for you; Motorola also offers the Moto E 4G, which is £60 cheaper and, bizarrely, faster. It’s such a good deal that it makes the Moto G look bad. So the addition of 4G to the Moto G is of little recompense when you consider what Motorola hasn’t considered in the new Moto G. 

If you want a cheap dual-SIM phone you’re going to be annoyed. In upgrading what was a very good budget phone Motorola has taken away its dual-SIM functionality (why does everyone think us Brits aren’t interested in that?) and completely neglected to upgrade the core hardware. And while the Moto G was a great phone last year, this year we want something better for our money. 

Given that this Moto G and its predecessor are in essence the same phone (though one has 4G and one is dual-SIM), we’ve taken a slightly different tack to usual with our new Moto G 4G 2024 review. In each of the key criteria on which we judge a smartphone we’ll compare it to the new Moto E 4G. For more in-depth analysis on either phone you should check out our full Moto E 4G review and Moto G mk 3 review. 

New Moto E 4G vs Moto G 4G 2024 comparison: UK price and availability. Moto E and Moto G versions explained

Motorola is desperate to confuse us with its Moto E and G line-ups. In this review we’re comparing the very latest Moto G to the very latest Moto E, but it’s worth trying to get your head around the differences between the earlier models, all of which are still available to buy (pricing is correct as of 23/3/15). 

Mk 1 Moto G: 3G connectivity, single-SIM, 4.5in HD screen, 8GB storage, £128 at Amazon

Mk 2 Moto G: 4G connectivity, single-SIM, 4.5in HD screen, 8GB storage, £117 at Amazon

Mk 3 Moto G: 3G connectivity, dual-SIM, 5in HD screen, 8GB storage, £140 at Amazon

Mk 4 Moto G: 4G connectivity, single-SIM, 5in HD screen, 8GB storage, £149 at Amazon 

The Moto E is the second-generation E from Motorola. It offers several upgrades over the original Moto E, including 4G connectivity, a faster processor and double the amount of storage (now matching the Moto G at 8GB). The original 3G version of the Moto E will set you back £70 at Amazon, while right now you can pick up this 4G version for £89 at Amazon. (Motorola has also unveiled a new 3G version of the Moto E, but until that goes on sale in the UK we’ll ignore it.) 

This puts a price difference of £60 between the £89 new Moto E 4G and £149 new Moto G 4G. As we’ll explain below, we cannot for a second imagine why anyone would buy the Moto G 4G over the Moto E 4G. Also see: Best smartphones 2024. 

New Moto E 4G vs Moto G 4G 2024: Design and build

The new Moto E 4G and Moto G 4G are incredibly similar in their design. Both are reasonably chunky, which we’ve come to expect from budget phones, with curved rears that fit well in the hand. There’s just 10g between them, with the Moto E weighing in at 145g and the Moto G 155g. 

As before you can change the rear shell on the new Moto E and new Moto G, but with the new Moto E 4G you can also change the grippy band that runs around its edge, allowing you to mix-and-match colours and create your own design. These are optional extras, mind: the Moto E ships with matching black or white shell and band, while the Moto G 4G is available only in black.

(You’ll notice our photography depicts a white Moto 4G. It isn’t a clever Photoshop trick; this is the otherwise identical mark 3 Moto G.)  

The Moto E is a little fatter at 12.3mm (against 11mm), but the Moto G is taller and wider at 71x142mm against the E’s 66.8×129.9mm. That’s not surprising, since it houses a larger 5in screen. This screen is also higher in resolution, with 720×1280 pixels offering a density of 294ppi. The Moto E’s screen is a qHD panel, just 540×960, but stretched over a smaller 4.5in panel not too far behind at 245ppi. Both are splashproof IPS displays with tough Gorilla Glass 3; bright, clear, with realistic colours and good viewing angles.  

Turn over the phones and only the Moto G boasts an LED flash. This is important not only for low-light photography, but also if you want to use the phone as a torch. The Lollipop OS includes a quick access toggle to turn on or off the flashlight within the notification bar, which is handy. Also see: Cheapest smartphones 2024. 

Whereas the new Moto E has lost one of the two metal bars that sit top and bottom on the front to conceal the speaker, the new Moto G 4G retains both and offers very good stereo sound for a budget smartphone.  

The new Moto G 4G wins this category, but there’s still not enough between the pair to warrant its extra cost. 

New Moto E 4G vs Moto G 4G 2024: Hardware and performance

One category the new Moto G 4G absolutely does not win is performance. And that’s weird, right? Motorola’s £89 budget Moto E is faster than its £149 Moto G – in every single one of our benchmarks.  

It’s not difficult to see why when you look at the spec sheets. While both phones have 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage (plus up to 32GB via microSD), the Moto E has the faster ‘410’ variant of the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor when compared to the Moto G’s ‘400’. Both are quad-core chips clocked at 1.2GHz. It also has the Adreno 306 in place of the Moto G’s Adreno 305. 

The Moto E was the clear winner in our benchmarks, turning in 464- and 1463 points in the single- and multi-core components of Geekbench 3 respectively, 13- and 6fps in GFXBench 3 T-Rex and Manhattan, and 1301ms in SunSpider. By comparison, those figures for the Moto G: 345- and 1182 points in Geekbench, 11- and 4.2fps in T-Rex and Manhattan, and 1968ms in SunSpider. You can compare these scores to those of all the phones we’ve recently tested in our article what’s the fastest smartphone 2024. 

When we’re talking about flagship phones such differences in performance aren’t an especially big deal – the average person is unlikely to grumble with the performance of any high-end smartphone. But when it comes to budget phones performance is key, with core hardware often falling victim to scrimping and saving. Motorola hasn’t even bothered to upgrade it for the Moto G, while the upgrades to the Moto E mean it’s no longer just a cheap phone for first-time or light users, but a proper Android smartphone that is more than capable enough for day-to-day use. 

New Moto E 4G vs Moto G 4G 2024: Cameras

The new Moto G 4G regains the lead in the photography department but, even so, if you’re looking for the best camera phone you won’t be interested in either of these Motorolas.  

The 2024 Moto E update added a front camera to Motorola’s cheapest smartphone. It’s only a VGA camera and, to be quite honest, it’s rubbish – but it allows you to use the Moto E for video chat (probably not selfies). The Moto G improves on this with a 2Mp camera but, although there is a clear difference in clarity here, it’s still only 2Mp. The best selfie phone you can buy today has a 13Mp front camera (we’re referring to the HTC Desire Eye), and within a couple of weeks the new HTC One M9 will join that party with its front-facing UltraPixel camera. 

Round the back the Moto G pairs the aforementioned LED flash with an 8Mp camera and f/2.0 aperture, while the Moto E has a 5Mp version with an f/2.2 aperture. They support the same features, including a 4x digital zoom, burst mode, auto HDR, tap to focus, quick capture and slo-mo video. Both support HD (720p) video recording, but we’d really like to see 1080p from the Moto G 4G. Also see: Best Android phones 2024. 

In our test shots below you can see the Moto E (below) clearly benefitted from the better weather (these were not taken on the same day), but the Moto G’s duller image is much sharper. You’ll find more revealing test shots, video and analysis in our full reviews of these phones. 

New Moto E 4G vs Moto G 4G 2024: Connectivity, software and battery

In connectivity these handsets are on par, both featuring 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and GPS. As we might have mentioned earlier, the new Moto G 4G is not, like the previous Moto G, a dual-SIM version. If you want a dual-SIM phone, check out our

Interestingly these phones are fitted with the same 2390mAh non-removable battery. Motorola promises all-day battery life for each and, given that it has a slightly larger, higher-resolution screen, but less powerful hardware, we’d be surprised if battery life wasn’t similar for the Moto E and Moto G. If you need more power to get you through the day, check out our round-up of the best power banks.

We ran the new Moto G through the Geekbench 3.0 battery life test. It recorded 7 hours 35 mins, which interestingly is longer than even the Samsung Galaxy S6 (6 hrs 53 mins) and S6 Edge (6 hrs 41 mins), but the battery score is half of those phones at 2024 points. 

Both Moto E and G run a vanilla version of Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box (with guaranteed upgrades to Android M), along with Motorola’s usual preinstalled software. This includes Motorola Assist, Alert and Migrate.

The Best Rugged Cases For The Galaxy S10

Samsung’s 10th anniversary Galaxy S flagships are going to be the smartphones to beat this year. Out of the trio of devices launched this year, the Galaxy S10 is the one that’s a middle ground between the more affordable S10e and the slightly pricier S10 Plus.

While the Galaxy S10 does come with the latest Gorilla Glass 6 for the front and uses Gorilla Glass 5 at the back the device is still pretty fragile which is why if you want to keep your S10 looking new for a long time, then we’d suggest installing a great rugged case.
