Moto G Stylus Review

I’ve been testing the Moto G Stylus for several months now. While I’m not particularly impressed by it, I don’t regret buying one, even though it doesn’t have pressure sensitivity. I’m also disappointed by the battery life, which is just over four hours. However, the passive Stylus isn’t pressured sensitive, and it takes at least two or three seconds to take a low-light picture.

Moto’s passive Stylus isn’t pressure-sensitive

The built-in pen on the Moto G Stylus makes it unique among midrange devices. Despite the Stylus’s lack of pressure sensitivity, the phone has decent specs, including a 4,000mAh battery, an FHD+ display, and three cameras, including a macro lens. Compared to other midrange devices, the G Stylus is a good example of how midrange phones have improved in recent years, despite being priced much lower than flagship offerings.

Aside from its pressure sensitivity, the Moto G Stylus lacks Bluetooth support and 5G. While this isn’t surprising on a midrange device, it isn’t very pleasant. Furthermore, contactless payments are so commonplace nowadays that many consumers assume every smartphone will come with them. As a result, users might become frustrated if they try to use Google Pay, despite the G Stylus’ lack of pressure-sensitive features.

While most smartphones and tablets have touchscreens, most do not feature pressure-sensitive technology. Passive styluses do not support palm rejection and do not support pressure sensitivity. However, they can be used on devices without a touchscreen and are useful for drawing or signing. The S Pen is the only model to have both features. If you want to use the S Pen, ensure it is near your device.

The first generation of styluses also supported tilt sensitivity but had rudimentary issues. It wasn’t easy to detect tilt sensitivity until a 45-degree angle. It also failed to work with many applications. Tilt sensitivity is probably unnecessary if you’re drawing on a computer. You’ll probably be writing in text fields instead. Nevertheless, artists need to have tilt-sensitive Stylus.

It doesn’t have Bluetooth.

While there is no Bluetooth in the Moto G Stylus 5G, it still performs well enough to be a worthwhile option for texting on the go. While there isn’t a formal IP rating for water or dust resistance, Motorola’s custom UI makes the experience pleasant and leaves most things alone. While it won’t survive a quick dip in a pool or sink, it is sturdy enough to survive the occasional splash.

If you need to use Bluetooth on your phone, you’ll need to turn on Airplane Mode first. This mode disables external connections. Then, turn Bluetooth on to test if it’s working properly. If Bluetooth doesn’t work on your phone, you’ll need to reboot your phone and reset your network settings. After that, turn the phone’s Bluetooth setting back on to discoverable.

One problem that may prevent your Moto G Stylus 5G from connecting to your Bluetooth-enabled device is its compatibility with different generations of Bluetooth. The latest Android smartphones support Bluetooth v5.0, but older phones may still use an earlier generation. If you don’t want to use an older phone with your new Moto G Stylus 5G, check the generation number and compatibility before purchasing.

The Moto G Stylus 5G lacks near-field communication (NFC). Unfortunately, that means it won’t be able to use contactless terminals like NFC. While Motorola probably has data that shows NFC isn’t a “make-or-break” feature, it still feels like a major miss in the 5G era. There are other downsides to the G Stylus, but it’s certainly worth the price of entry.

The Moto G Stylus 5G is Motorola’s first smartphone to come with a stylus pen. It lets you edit photos, write notes, and mark up screenshots. However, it doesn’t have Bluetooth or pressure sensitivity. Instead, it’s housed in the phone’s bottom right corner. The Stylus can be used with the Moto Note app. The software also supports a customizable quick launch menu for quick access to common tasks.

It doesn’t have pressure sensitivity.

The Stylus on the Moto G is not as fancy as the S Pen. It is made primarily of metal and feels heavy in hand. The tip is a mesh design that flattens when pushed harder. However, it does have pressure sensitivity. It is a decent stylus, but it’s no match for Samsung’s S Pen. Nevertheless, the Stylus on the Moto G is worth considering if you’re a fan of pen-centric features.

In addition to the pressure-sensitive Stylus, the Moto G Stylus also has a 48MP f/1.7 camera and two MP f/2.2 macro lenses. It produces good images, but they’re slightly overexposed. The camera is decent, though, but not exceptional. As a result, the Stylus isn’t worth it if you’re not a fan of a camera with pressure sensitivity.

The Moto G Stylus lacks NFC and 5G support. While that’s not surprising for a mid-range phone, it isn’t very pleasant. With contactless payments becoming commonplace, consumers assume every smartphone has this feature. Unfortunately, setting up Google Pay or other contactless payments will be frustrating. So if you’re looking for an excellent stylus, look no further than the Moto G Stylus.

In addition to pressure sensitivity, the Moto G Stylus also lacks Bluetooth support. Because of this, the Stylus is useless for controlling presentation slides or remotely snapping a photo. The phone is still far from a rival like the Samsung Note 10+. However, this smartphone does come with a Qualcomm SD665 processor, which is more than sufficient for most tasks. However, pressure sensitivity and Bluetooth connectivity are important.

The Moto G Stylus has a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-C port, and a rounded SIM/microSD card tray. Besides these, the phone features a conventional design with a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, it’s important to note that the device does not have a water-resistant rating.

It takes 2-3 seconds to take a low-light photo.

You’re missing out if you’ve never taken a low-light photo with a mobile phone! The Moto G Stylus has a built-in stylus, perfect for pinpoint precision. It also features a 48 MP main sensor with Quad Pixel technology, which delivers four times the amount of light sensitivity. This allows for sharp 12 MP photos to be taken in the dark, and it has a 5000 mAh battery, which means you can take as many photos as you’d like and still have ample power left to make calls.

The Moto G Stylus has a similar design to the Moto G Power. Its 6.4-inch display has a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera, and slim bezels surround it on the sides. The screen has a Full-HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio, making it an excellent choice for people looking for a phone with a stylus. Unfortunately, this device has no wireless charging, but it does support USB-C. It’s an excellent phone at this price point.
