Great phone, Great value @ 5G
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
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.
I'm 74 years old, replacing an LG G6 I bought new and got good service from, but it was time and the LG was too expensive to repair/refurbish. I don't like Apple and I got skunked on a Samsung TV and didn't want to give them another chance. I started shopping and eventually got around to Motorola (hard not to, they make so many phones). I was closing in on a Motorola G62, international version, unlocked when I discovered this phone for virtually the same price. A 2021 model but superior to the G62 so I made the leap and I'm not sorry. At my age there are many things I don't use a phone for, gaming, watching movies (better streaming on a big screen) and I'm not much on music or social media. I have too many APPs but even more storage plus it's expandable. It has a headphone jack, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC, all "must haves" for me. It was idiot proof to set-up and has flexible enough settings for me to set it up just the way I wanted and it doesn't come with a lot of pre-installed junk. It's new but the battery life exceeds my expectations by a mile. It's running Android 11 and may get 12 in the future (?) but that's OK with me (the LG was Android 8, maybe 9). The camera works well enough for me, there are better (and more expensive) ones available but that's a matter of need & taste. I have no trouble seeing the screen. Works just fine with Consumer Cellular, no dropped calls and good call quality. I had a Motorola years ago, liked it and it lasted a long time and I mourned it's passing. I hope I'll be able to say the same for this one years from now (at my age it could outlast me!). If there were anything I would like on this phone that it doesn't have that would be two speakers rather than one but I honestly can't say why. I paid a little over $200.00 for this phone and have seen it recently for a little less. It's better than the LG that I paid $1,000.00 for when it was new (technology). I bought a Sahara case for it with built in screen saver ($30.00), fits perfectly, good protection. I make and receive calls, text, read news, emails & texts and use Google Wallet & Assistant. If you are looking for a solid phone, I think this fits the bill and I'm sure it's capable of doing many other things I don't do equally well. Good luck, I hope this helps.
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.

Motorola One 5G Ace reviewThe Motorola One 5G Ace delivers 5G, a big screen, and speedy performance on a budget, even if it's a little basic elsewhere.

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
Motorola One 5G Ace review: Great battery life and 5G aren't enoughIt wasn't too long ago that Motorola was leading the pack when it came to budget phones thanks to devices like their Moto G7 Power. More recently, Motorola has been taking on the mid-range, and Motorola One 5G Ace review: The Ace is a solid
A:AnswerThanks for your interest, Andy. If you look at our carrier compatibility list here: https://www.motorola.com/us/carrier-compatibility, this device is compatible with AT&T. However, 5G support will be added later. - Mike
A:Answer...if not compatible with Xfinity wireless, why are they selling them on their site to their Xfinity wireless customers? Do I have to call them instead of believing Motorola site checking for compatibility? When was Motorola site updated for this accurate check before I purchase? Find a good product and deal at the provider then I can't use the product because someone is not up to date or is not honest...I'm a little confused on to buy or not to buy or just wait til my 4G phone craps out? I have only used Motorola for past 1.5 decades and disappointed when I checked about 20 Motorola phones and none are compatible with Xfinity Wireless carrier?
A:AnswerMine was 10 Watts as well, and that's what Motorola includes with all of the phones as far as I know. The phone supports up to a 15W charger, which should theoretically charge at about a 50% faster rate, approximately.
The battery is 5000 mAH (milliamp hours) which is quite a bit of battery power for a phone. That's equivalent to 5 amp hours. 10 watts at 5 Volts DC is 2 amps, and you're taking a battery that's down to 30% (1500 mah) back to a full charge... that's going to take a bit longer than other phones because the battery is so big. So a charger that's capable of 2A charging for 1.5 hours = 3AH, or 3000 mAh for a total of about 4.5AH, or 4500mAH. Close enough to 5000mAH given battery recharging capabilities.
A 15 watt charger at 5 vdc is 3A. That's a 50% increase in output. But when we compare charging times, what does this gain you? 3A per hour, or 3000 mAH from 30% (1500mAH) means it will take about an hour vs. hour and a half to recharge to the same point. (Battery recharge rates are not linear, so these values are approximate.) It's faster, but it's still going to take a while because the battery is so big.
An alternative is to plug in randomly throughout the day to get a bit of a charge here and there. I do this sitting at my desk at work, or when I'm running around town in my vehicle. I rarely see 80% or less this way, but I typically plug in when I sleep at night.
Hope this helps.
A:AnswerNo... it has 6GB of RAM, and either 64GB or 128GB of storage space depending on which phone you buy. It also has the capability of adding an expandable microSD card, up to 1TB.
