Motorola is now selling the Moto G100 in the United States, after introduction earlier this year Latin American and European markets. It comes with mid-range specifications such as a large 5000 mAh battery, 5G and a 90 Hz display for a $ 599 MSRP. From now until August 5, Motorola will be offering a $ 100 discount on the full retail price.
There are two important footnotes to the compatibility of the US operator of the G100: it is a GSM phone only, so it works with AT&T and T-Mobile, but not Verizon, and its 5G connection is only compatible with T-Mobile’s 5G network. Outside of that, it seems to be a respectable mid-range device if priced a little more expensive. It uses a Snapdragon 870 processor with 8GB of RAM, less than 6GHz 5G, and a 6.7-inch 1080p display at 90 Hz refresh rate.
Motorola’s U.S. phone releases have focused on the $ 200-400 range this year, making the G100 one of the most priced devices the company has recently introduced to the market. While the large battery, faster refreshing display, and higher-end processor seem to fit into its $ 599 price tag, its lack of IP rating and extensive carrier / 5G support may set it back to similarly priced peers like the Samsung A52 5G or Pixel 4A 5G (if still available).
