Have you been looking for a 5g smartphone but haven’t quite bit the bullet, because you’re unwilling to pay the premium that’s usually associated with it? Well, no worries. 2021 will usher in a new wave of affordable 5g devices, starting with this one motorola’s new sub 400 5g smartphone. This is our motorola one 5g ace hands on here in the us. Motorola has long been associated with solid budget smartphones and at 550 last fall’s motorola. One 5g was clearly the company’s attempt to make 5g more affordable the new motorola one 5g ace is 150 dollars cheaper, but it retains some of the best parts of this phone, including the excellent snapdragon 765g processor, a massive 5000 milliamp hour battery and a pretty capable 48 megapixel camera. If you pick one up, retail packaging will look like this box. Design is pretty standard across all of motorola’s phones. Contents are very similar too. Apart from the phone there’s paperwork and a sim ejector tool, a usb a to c cable and a 10 watt charger once unwrapped, you’ll find the motorola one. 5G ace looks very very similar to its pricey big brother, with the same polycarbonate plastic finish and textured pattern. It comes in two colors volcanic gray and this one over here, frosted silver at 6.7, inches it’s, a big phone similar to motorola’s current g series, lineup and roughly the same size as samsung’s galaxy s20 ultra for its price point. This large, full hd plus display is sufficient, whether you’re scrolling through instagram or playing games, and with hdr 10 support it’s perfect for watching movies.
Also Music, one of my favorite processors from 2020, was qualcomm’s snapdragon 765 series because it offered a great balance between power and price. This premium mid range soc powered the likes of the google pixel 5 and the lg velvet, both of which were 700 dollar smartphones, which is why i’m pretty thrilled that motorola is able to offer the same chip on a 400 phone. This means it’s powerful enough to handle day to day tasks and then some it should also chug along fine. If you decide to keep it for a few years. North american versions of this phone come with 6 gigabytes of ram and 128 gigabytes of storage, and in case you need more. You can pop in a micro sd card right here in this tray. It shares with its single nano sim card and, while we’re looking down here beside the single speaker and usb c port is a headphone jack. I know some of you might like that. Finally, on its back where you’ll find the motorola logo is a fingerprint sensor, unlike the motorola one 5g, which had a total of six cameras, the motorola one 5g ace has a more reasonable three rear cameras and a selfie shooter, while its eight megapixel ultra wide angle. Camera is nothing to write home about, and its 2 megapixel macro camera pretty unusable. Its 48 megapixel camera does a decent job at capturing snapshots. Take this photo, for example, shot against the light and still manage to expose the scene properly.
The depth of field is creamy and when you zoom in to the leaf, you can see all the details. This next shot of a corgi mural came out pretty good. Even if the sun had already disappeared from the horizon, the phone has also got night mode. So, even in my dimly lit living room, this photo of my lego city came out pretty good Music. The other noteworthy feature of the motorola one 5g ace is its massive 5 000 milliamp hour battery that, in our tests, lasted a full day and a half of moderate use with 5g on not quite the two days promised by motorola but more than sufficient. Nonetheless, my only complaint is that it ships with a measly 10 watt charger in the box, which is nothing compared to what’s available in the market today, for example, its closest competitor, the similarly priced oneplus. Nord n100 5g comes with a warp charge: 30t charger in the us. The new motorola one 5g ace will be available starting january 14th. It retails for ‘9.99, and you can start pre ordering starting january 8th at best, buy walmart b h photo amazon and motorola.com. It will also be coming to your favorite cell provider in the coming months. Motorola says it will be universally unlocked and that was our motorola one 5g ace hands on a pretty good phone that balances performance power. Battery life delivers 5g and comes with a pretty good camera. Today, motorola also announced the 2021 moto g lineup, including the moto g play moto g power and the moto g stylus, which retail for 170 200 and 300 dollars respectively.
