The Motorola Moto G62 is one of the few phones around the €200 mark that offers 5G connectivity thanks to its cost-effective Snapdragon 480+ chip.
It’s a little puzzling at first, as the Snapdragon 680 powers the arguably inferior Moto G52, but in fact the 480+ is a faster chip and the only one with a 5G modem. So Qualcomm’s naming scheme is mostly to blame.
The handset is built on a fast 120Hz 6.5-inch IPS LCD and carries a set of stereo speakers for a more complete multimedia experience. There is only one available memory, 4GB/128GB. Storage is expandable using a hybrid microSD card slot.
The camera setup is quite familiar as it was also used in the G52. We have a 50MP 1/2.76″ main camera sensor with 0.64µm pixel size behind an f/1.8 lens, along with 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP macro cameras. The selfie shooter located inside the center hole has a 16MP f/2.2 aperture sensor .
The entire system is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with a maximum output of 15W, and interestingly, both are downgrades from last year’s Moto G60. Specs aren’t everything though, so we have to do our usual set of tests to see the true power autonomy and charging times.
The Moto G62 is one of the most affordable 5G phones on the market, so a lot of people are probably wondering if it’s worth it. Stay tuned and we will let you know.
