I had this phone for a week and has been excellent, fast, reliable, no bloated apps, 5G in 90% of the places I have been, regular updates, battery life, enough memory and expandable memory, Qualcomm chip, I love Moto's phone, been with them since early, to the smartphones now, X4, to the G Powers, compared to over $1K phones, for what I do, txt, apps, phone calls, is worth it, I only play games, movies, etc. once in a while, when I have too. But this phone is great for me for I do 90% of the time. I know is not the same Moto it was before, since is owned by Lenovo, but still heading to the right direction.
I went to bed last night with 70% battery left!!!
Its not a thousand dollar phone and should not be judged as such so ignore the snobby experts who compare it to something much more unaffordable.
Im upgrading from a S7 edge that I have owned for 3 years. Its snappy fast in comparison, has a great screen, and battery life is so amazing. Most people just want a reliable phone where they dont have to bother about being attached to the charger like this one. The snobby experts suggest buying the more expensive Big Tech Google Pixel which doesnt have as good as a battery and no SD card. No thank you. I love this and I am ordering another phone for my wife. And if you live in Oklahoma City... Mint mobile is crazy cheap without a contract and provides great 5G! 60mpbs down and 50mbps up. Thats Mint mobile using the T mobile towers by the way.
One of the best ways to beat the high cost of monthly cell phone cost, is to buy a unlocked phone. You can find good phones for well under 500 dollars. Then just take your phone to a high quality prepaid carrier and pay 40 dollars a month, with no hidden fees.
I upgraded from a Samsung S6 that I paid 700 dollars for in 2016, but just 40 dollars a month for service, After phone outlay, my monthly mobile cost stay low. The Motorola 5g Ace is a bargain at 399. So kick those cell phone blues to the curb, and buy yourself a unlocked phone at Best Buy.
Ok, Pros..Large Bright Screen, Super Fast Snappy Processor, suitable for 5 spreadsheets open at once and your stock tickers in trade mode with both Teams and Outlook running in the background as fast and as good as any phone that costs a grand. Battery lasts for 2 days avg use and 3 on standby...maybe the best 5000 mili Amp skam. diagram for power consumption I have seen. 128 on board, 5g, aux jack and micro SD slot...Please Phone snobs should have their heads examined. You can game Call of Duty with no lag or Freeze for 12hrs or more on one charge.
Cons Only Ok Camera, Poor Macro, No Zoom. plastic body, no Gorilla Glass, ships with Android 10. Mono Speaker.
For $279 bucks this is the best mid range 5g phone you can buy. It doesn't need Super AMOLD or 90k refresh rates..and neither do you. This LCD delivers a hi res crisp ppi that is bright enough for most situations. The speaker is mono but loud enough to fill your board room. Also no phone can deliver true stereo because in order to do that the channels need to be further apart than any phone can place the speakers, Look it up. Try it..Add a quality case, a set of ear buds or head phones and you just saved $600 over the cost of that Galaxy.
I wanted lots of memory (RAM, storage, expandability), long battery life, a headphone jack. I also have an expectation to be able to get these at a reasonable price. The Moto One 5G Ace met all of these expectations.
The cameras are not a concern for me. Call quality is very good. Aside from communication services, I primarily use my device for multimedia and connectivity for that purpose. Audio is primary, with video-casting secondary. I rarely watch video on the device, but picture quality is fine.
I use USB-On-the-Go for additional (media) storage, so having a USB-C port (primarily used for charging) is also key.
I would have preferred a smaller package, even with slightly reduced battery capacity. I have never been a fan of the ever-growing size of "cell phones", this is at the maximum size for my pockets.
I am quite satisfied with my purchase.
Nice phone-works with Verizon post troubleshooting
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
I upgraded from and unlocked G7 to the unlocked Moto One 5g Ace. This phone has exceeded my expectations;
1) The screen is great - extremely sharp resolution
2) Very snappy and smooth - no hiccups
3) Cameras are fine, at least multiple times better than the G7
4} Battery life is pretty good, though time will tell.
Now for Verizon - As many complained, text messaging did not work initially so I went to a Verizon store. The rep talked to a Verizon engineer who fixed the issue, but that fix disabled phone calls. Another call to the Verizon engineer fixed that as well.
This is a Verizon issue, not a phone issue, so if you purchase an unlocked phone and experience these problems, go to your local Verizon store for a fix before returning the phone.
Best Buy requires a $45 restocking fee which is a bad deal. However I needed the phone right away so I took the chance. Next time, I would order directly from Motorola.
In summary, at the $349 sale price this is a good phone. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Motorola One 5G Ace reviewIs a low price and a long-lasting battery enough to make you buy the Motorola One 5G Ace? Motorola hopes so, but the presence of other inexpensive 5G devices makes this a hard sell.
Motorola One 5G Ace ReviewMotorola's new One 5G Ace is essentially a stripped-down version of the One 5G from last summer, and that's not a bad thing given how solid that phone was. The new Ace model makes some smart trade-offs to make 5G more accessible, and it mostly
