Motorola Moto G100 in for review
The Moto G line continues to grow past the double-digit mark. After the G10 and G30, we turn our attention to a more compelling addition – the Moto G100, which acts as the top dog in the Motorola G-Series. Our review unit just came in, so let’s see what it has to offer.
Starting with a quick design overview, the Iridescent Ocean color of our device is undoubtedly flashy and one of the more interesting shades we have had in the office. It switches between blue, green and purple depending on the lighting.
Prior to that, it’s as usual with a 6.7-inch IPS LCD and FHD + resolution. The dual hole cutouts take some time to get used to, though you get the added benefit of having a 16MP primary selfie shooter as well as an 8 MP ultra-wide snapper. Add a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10 support and you have a smooth viewing experience.
When we go for the internal, we find the Snapdragon 870 – a capable chipset that offers excellent performance. RAM stands at 8 GB and storage space is set to 128 GB, though you can easily pop into a microSD card to expand.
There is a 64MP primary camera on the back next to a 16MP ultra-wide module. The remaining two slots are for 2MP macro camera and 2MP depth assistant. Below them we have an LED flash and ToF sensor for laser autofocus. Switch to the battery, we have a 5,000 mAh cell with 20W fast charging.
The software front is covered by Motorola’s MyUX on top of Android 11. You also get a nice “Ready For” mobile desktop interface similar to Samsung DeX when connected to an external monitor. Keep an eye on our full review of the Moto G100, where we give you all the details.
