Take my review with a grain of salt. I had to upgrade my decade old htc One. I tell you what, that phone was a complete trooper. It had been dropped on pavements, on bricks, in puddles of water and today it chugs on. It dies at a 70% charge and heats up often and so i knew it was best to part ways. This device is awesome. I only use it to call and text and when my tablet is charging, i will use it for Rumble or YT. Also, i did not charge this phone until it was at 16% and that took 3 days. I hope it lasts me a decade!
I also purchased the sahara case. It feels super durable. With this case, the phone is well protected.
Disappointed! Brand new unopened phone got delivered about an hour ago and stylus is already stuck! Won't go in, won't come out. I am with a 90year old client. Can't leave her to do an exchange in store. I call best buy, and the line is so bad and calls keep dropping. Am just frustrated!

The best low budget phone I ever purchased. Replaces my Stylo 4 just on time, LG stop making cell phones. Phew! I was about to purchase a Stylo 6. The reason purchased the Moto G stylus 2021? The camera is insane, the photos are like professional quality.
The Best Buy associate that assisted me with finding a new phone was very amicable and helpful with picking out the right phone for me. I appreciate it very much and love my new Moto G Stylus!!!!
P.S. - The phone takes really nice pictures and the photo I added was the first pic I took of our two furry fluff balls. LoL
I bought this to replace my wife's old Moto Force 2 Droid, which she loved for its excellent reception and didn't want to give up, but it had issues and had become totally unreliable. Since she hates change and is not exactly the most tech-savvy person in the neighborhood I figured sticking with Moto would give more consistency in the user interface.
I wanted something at a reasonable price with a decent camera, longest possible battery life, good phone/Internet reception in remote areas, not too much larger than the Force 2, and hopefully a processor that would keep things moving along at a decent clip. Even staying within the Moto lineup there is a bewildering array of choices that meet or come close to providing all these.
While she will probably never use the stylus, the G7 Stylus came closest to checking off all the boxes. Sure, there are phones with better specs out there but for a non-power user who needs reliable reception and decent camera, this phone was perfect. Since 5G is so slow in rolling out I stuck with the 4G version so I expect battery life will be excellent, at least for the first year or so.
She had to go out of town the day after the purchase and was sure she would not be able to do anything other than text if she was lucky. She called the next day and was excited to report she didn't have any problems figuring out any of the functions. She says the camera is wonderful - she says the colors just "pop." She's had it over a week now and can read her Kindle books all day with a lot less glare than her old phone, take tons of photos, text, IM and talk on the phone for hours and at day's end she still has at least 58% battery. With 128GB she shouldn't even need an SD card...at least for now.
I can't really comment on quality yet as I only had a few hours during set-up to check it out. Voice quality sounds good and the phone seemed sturdy but only time will tell. So only 4 stars for now on that but quite likely it will turn out to be higher, especially given the price. Since its a fairly new model it was a pain finding a screen protector and case to fit on such short notice but that should change soon.
I could have easily spent hundreds more for "specs" and features that many of us don't understand, appreciate or use and not have gotten such a delighted response. She LOVES her G7 Stylus - happy wife, happy life.
I came in to Best Buy on 1/14/21. I dealt with a salesman named Nicholas Pando. He took his time with me going over the features of various phones. He found one for me that was comparable to my old phone. I needed to think about it overnight. I went back in on Friday morning 1/15/21 and bought the phone. He then proceeded to transfer my data from the old phone to the new one. He was patient and took his time with me, í would urge others to deal with him. His kindness was great.

Moto G Stylus reviewThe Moto G Stylus finds itself in a bit of a pickle. This mid-range phone debuts at the same time as both the Moto G Power and Moto G Fast. It should come as no surprise for a trio phones that come from the same manufacturer and sport similar

Moto G Stylus ReviewIf you're shopping for a smartphone with a built-in stylus, you can spend big bucks on Samsung's Galaxy Note 10, which is terrific but costs upwards of $1,000, or far less on LG's Stylo 5, which is often free with carrier subsidies but falls short
Moto G Stylus/Power go on sale today — Here's where to buy and what reviews are sayingA couple of months after they were announced, Motorola is today launching the Moto G Stylus and Moto G Power, its lineup of mid-range smartphones for 2020. Now that they're available, here's where you can buy them and what early reviews are
A:AnswerI found a clear, slim "soft" case with bumpers on each corner at Amazon! Easy to slip on and fits very well. Phone can be slippery w/o it; gives more tactile 'security'! Can't remember brand; just make sure you specify 2021 model; 2020 year cases not recommended for 2021 models! When you google for case always specify 2021 G Stylus if that's what you have!
A:AnswerYes if you buy the unlocked version. You will have to get an actvated sim card from boost if you don't have a phone. But if you already have Boost you just take your sim out of that phone, or any phone for that matter, and put it in this one.
A:AnswerThanks for your interest, Notaphoney. If you look at our carrier compatibility list here: https://www.motorola.com/us/carrier-compatibility, the Moto G Stylus (2021) is compatible with Visible Wireless (MVNO of Verizon Network). But, I would still suggest contacting your preferred carrier to check if the phone will work using their service. - Mike
A:AnswerYes, Motostylus21. This phone is wifi calling capable phone. However, this feature is carrier dependent. We suggest contacting your preferred carrier to confirm if they'll support these features on this device.-Jess
