Motorola is back with yet another 5G smartphone in India in the budget category. It took the company almost a year to come up with the Moto G51, after the Moto G 5G. That was the company’s first 5G offering in the budget segment.
It doesn’t matter that Motorola took that much time to introduce another 5G smartphone. It is because India is yet to get 5G despite desperate trials being conducted by the telecom companies. Nonetheless, it won’t hurt to own a future-ready product that too on a budget.
Moto G51 has become the first phone to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 Plus SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM. The company has launched the phone with higher RAM variants in China and other markets. However, in India, it only comes in a single 4GB variant.
The phone features a gigantic screen and comes with interesting camera specs. At Rs 14,999, Moto G51 seems like the perfect phone for budget buyers. Here are the first impressions of the new Moto G51.
With the Moto G51, Motorola brought back its good old, no-nonsense design. It is common in most budget smartphones the company has launched so far. The Moto G51 feels clunky at 208 grams.
The smartphone features a capsule-shaped camera module on the rear. It houses three large camera sensors along with LED flashlights. The smartphone looks similar to the Moto G31 but has flatter edges.
The smartphone features a 6.8-inch display, which is quite big. People who enjoy watching shows on their mobile phones will really like the display size. However, holding the phone for too long can be a little painful because it is heavy. The rear panel of the smartphone is not a fingerprint magnet.
The Moto G51 features an LCD display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 Plus. That is slightly more powerful than the Snapdragon 480. One of the major takeaways of the smartphone is that it comes with 12 Band 5G. Moto G51 houses a 5000mAh battery with support for fast charging.
The phone comes with near-stock Android, so you won’t have to endure bloatware and the annoying notifications from the pre-loaded apps. Overall, the phone has a very clean interface with no unwanted apps. One will find Facebook and all the Google apps in the Moto G51. However, the battery drains quickly while one plays games.
As far as the camera is concerned, this phone features a quad-function 50-megapixel camera sensor. The primary sensor is accompanied by an 8-megapixel and a 2-megapixel sensor as well. On the front, there is a 13-megapixel camera sensor for selfies.
