Introducing Moto G Stylus 2022 – the third generation of Motorola stylus phones
Smartphone Moto G Stylus 2022 has a plastic body and is produced in two colors, dark blue (Twilight Blue) and a kind of pink called Metallic Rose. According to the manufacturer’s claim, the body of the device is equipped with a water repellent coating and resists accidental spillage or gentle splashing of water drops or drizzle. Of course, according to Motorola, this resistance may also decrease over time. The display of the Moto G Stylus 2022 is a 6.8-inch LCD model with FHD+ resolution (equivalent to 1080 x 2460 pixels). This display – which the manufacturer calls MaxVision – has an aspect ratio of 20:9 and covers 89% of the body surface. It should be noted that the refresh rate in this display has increased to 90 Hz.
In the processing section Moto G Stylus 2022 witnessing the use of a 12 nm chip Helio G88 (instead of Snapdragon 678 which was used in the 2021 model). On paper, this chipset uses older cores, at least in the processing part, and while in Snapdragon 678 we saw the presence of 2 A76 cores and 6 A55 cores, in G88, stronger types of cores are A75 has been reduced. Thus, according to some data, Helio G88 has only 68% of the performance of Snapdragon 678. Of course, in some other benchmarks (such as PCMark for Android), the Helio G88 chip has recorded a higher speed than the Snapdragon 678. Of course, there is no doubt that the Helio G88 has a faster GPU. The internal memory of Moto G Stylus 2022 is 128 GB, which can be expanded up to 512 GB using microSD. But the device’s RAM has increased from 4 to 6 GB.
The number of cameras on the Moto G Stylus 2022 has been reduced from 4 cameras to 3 cameras. The main camera has a resolution of 50 megapixels and its aperture is f/1.9. The next member is an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera (with an aperture of f/2.2 and a field of view of 118 degrees), which simultaneously plays the role of a macro camera. Finally, we arrive at a 2-megapixel depth camera with f/2.4 aperture. Among the capabilities of the camera set are night vision, time-lapse, simultaneous capture with front and rear cameras (Dual Capture), panorama mode, highlighting a color in the photo (Spot Color) and FHD video recording at 60 Noted frames per second. Not to mention, a 16-megapixel selfie camera (f/2.2) is also placed in the central hole (unlike the previous model, which had the camera hole on the left side).
Another upgraded item in Moto G Stylus 2022 is a battery whose capacity has increased from 4,000 to 5,000 mAh. According to Motorola this battery (with normal use) will last up to two days. It is not bad to mention here the stylus, which is kept in a part of the body itself. Maybe this pen is not as big as the S Pen, but the experience of using it on this phone is much better than using the S Pen on flagships. “Samsung”>Samsung is cheaper and eliminates the user’s need to a great extent. Among the uses of this pen, you can easily edit screenshots and take notes (without the need to unlock the phone).
Moto G Stylus 2022 operating system Android 11, if we expected to see Android 12. Motorola’s exclusive skin – that is, My UX – is also active in this device. Of course, according to Motorola, this user interface is free of any additional applications and offers users an experience close to pure Android.
Moto G Stylus 2022’s fingerprint sensor is embedded on its edge and another authentication option is Face Unlock. In the introduction of this product, the manufacturer has also mentioned the ThinkShield security feature. The new Motorola smartphone accepts only one SIM card and its communication technology is 4G. The lack of 5G connectivity in 2022 (even for a low-end phone) also seems a little strange (compare with the budget Galaxy A32 5G smartphone, which was equipped with 5G connectivity over a year ago). Bluetooth 5.0, headphone jack, USB-C port and GLONASS, GPS and Galileo routers are among other communication options of this device. Needless to say, this phone lacks NFC.
Smartphone Motorola Moto G Stylus 2022 will be produced in only one configuration – with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. US users can pre-order this product now, but the official market entry of this model will start from February 17th (28th of Bahman). The price of this phone is announced at $299 and its release outside the US market is not yet known. In the end, it should be noted that although the Moto G Stylus 2022 is considered a phone with a high purchase value at this price, if you put it next to Moto G Stylus 5G – which was announced in early June last year – the comparison becomes a bit difficult, because with the choice of the Moto G Stylus 2022 you get a better display, but you lose 5G connectivity and more internal memory.
