There was no clear consensus in last week’s poll – some think that Motorola is onto something with the new G-series, others think that all five are duds. Two models in particular stood out, the Moto G200 and the G71, the other three are shaping up to be disappointments.

The Motorola Moto G200 5G impressed with its €450 price tag and Snapdragon 888+ chipset. Commenters seemed happy with the 108+8+2MP camera setup, though some lamented the loss of the ultrawide selfie camera of the G100. We didn’t see much talk about the 144Hz refresh rate of the screen, but like the 888+ chip it’s not an easy to find feature at this price range.

The Moto G200 is a few steps short of perfection, though. We already mentioned the absence of the second selfie camera and there were the usual complaints that the phone lacks a microSD slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack (two things that the Moto G100 did have). No stereo speakers was also a concern.

Moving over to the Motorola Moto G71 5G, it received less attention than the Moto G200, but some think it is the better model. It’s smaller, a 6.8” phone like the G200 isn’t for everyone. It’s cheaper too and overall has a pretty good mid-range package.

Unfortunately, both of these (actually all five) have one major issue in the software department – stock Android is fine and dandy (people hate bloat), but having only one guaranteed OS update is causing many to look at phones from competing brands. Longevity matters and Motorola just doesn’t offer it, not even with the Moto G200 and its close-to-flagship specs.
