Over the last few years, phones have only been getting more expensive. As a result, most budget phones don’t offer great value for money. Motorola Moto G22 is one of the rare devices that do. The phone’s biggest advantages are its battery life, design, display, and naturally, its affordability. Speaking of affordability, the phone is priced at $305 for the 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage sole variant. The phone has a triple card slot that can accept a memory and two Nano-SIM cards. It comes in four color options: Pearl White, Iceberg Blue, Cosmic Black, and Mint Green.
The device has a water-repellent design and plastic body. However, the phone looks worth a lot more than what it is. The back of the device is glossy, and it picks up fingerprints, but it’s less visible in the Cosmic Black version. While Motorola Moto G22 has curved edges, its sharpness does impact the in-hand feel. Therefore, it’s recommended that you use the phone with a case on. It can support 2G, 3G, and 4G connections. On the bright side of things, Motorola Moto G22 is lightweight at 185 grams. The dimensions of the phone are 6.46 by 2.95 by 0.33 inches. Considering the price, the device’s display quality and multimedia experience are good.
It has a 6.5-inch HD+ IPS LCD screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. At this price, it’s not uncommon to see a TFT screen. As a result, the presence of an IPS LCD screen and 90 Hz refresh rate is appreciable. The phone’s screen-to-body ratio and PPI density are 84.2% and 268 respectively. However, it should be mentioned here that you might need to look for a shade on a very bright day outdoors. In the sound department, the device has a loudspeaker and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The MediaTek Helio G37 processor delivers average overall performance.
The PowerVR GE8320 GPU allows you to play heavy games smoothly, but only at the lowest settings. Coming to the software, the device runs Android 12 which is an advantage of owning the phone. While you do get a couple of unnecessary pre-installed apps, they can be uninstalled. An ad-free and near-stock Android experiences are the unique pros of using a Motorola phone. It’s safe to say that Motorola Moto G22 continued that tradition. As for the cameras, their performance in proper lighting conditions is decent. However, it struggles in low lighting conditions, like most budget ones. The phone has a 50 MP wide-angle, 8 MP ultrawide, and 2 MP macro and depth sensor camera on the rear.
It also has a 16 MP wide-angle camera for selfies. The gadget has all the usual camera features and can record videos up to 1080p. Connectivity options on this phone include USB Type-C 2.0, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi, and a Hotspot. Motorola deserves special praise for including NFC in this phone, as there are barely any budget phones available with this feature. It has a 5000 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery that provides a backup of around one and a half days on average. This is acceptable considering the competition. Additionally, Motorola Moto G22 supports 15W fast charging.
