    Best Moto Stylus phone, and a great phone overall

    I think this is the best Moto G stylus phone they've come out with. I've used Moto G Stylus phones in the past and thought they were good but never where I was too impressed. Before I got this one I was using a Samsung Galaxy A54 for awhile now and after I started using this I liked it better. I feel like it performs better than my Samsung and looks nicer. The screen is so nice and has little bezels. I also can see it outside in the sun a lot better than before. The fingerprint sensor is one of the best I've ever used that wasn't on a flagship phonr and I also thought it worked better than my Pixel 6a I used to have and also my A54's. The cameras on here really surprised me. I thought the pictures I took were really good, maybe not the quality as an S24 or Pixel but pretty close. I thought video taking looked good, almost like my Samsung just depends how lighting conditions are. I gave this phone all stars because of how much they improved this out of all the Moto G Stylus phones. This is definitely a phone to look at if you're a fan of the stylus phone or Samsung Notes and you don't need the best camera and you're not a heavy gamer this is a good phone. But I took several pictures in low light and I was so impressed how it did I had to show them. But definitely give this phone a look. It might work just as good for you as any other phone.

    Wow! Just wow! Been a Motorola fan since the old Moto X days, but I've passed on a lot of their recent flagships because I hate curved screens. Took a chance on this guy because the hardware looked amazing and it does not disappoint. Beautiful FLAT screen, amazing battery life, and great performance from an older chipset. I'm not sure I'll ever use the stylus, but everything else about this phone is scratching me right where I itch. Highly recommend.

    The best mid range smartphone just got better.

    Had this smartphone for over 3 weeks and I’ve been kind of overwhelmed by the many uses of it. I would’ve rated this 5 stars had it been for the fact that a charger wasn’t included so I had to order one (I get it. I guess in order to keep the price down some, a charger would make it cost a little more. I had an issue after ordering it along with a case. The items were never delivered to me, the blame goes to USPS, so I had to order a replacement. These items were delivered on time through Amazon and I got a refund for that order). The great thing about this smartphone is that it has improved from last year’s 5g stylus. Not only it has faster charging, but now there’s wireless charging too. The phone’s camera got a little better. There’s eSim along with a physical sim card holder (an available dual sim, not used to that. I rather use the physical sim for now). There’s still the usual apps like offline fm radio (love it), a headphone jack (love it), sim card holder not only for a physical sim, but for a micro SD card too (really lovin’ it). Even though there’s not gonna be a lot of updates, I’ll probably end up getting another 5g stylus for 2025 (if it improves some more), but I’ll end up keeping this smartphone as a backup.

    Another Great G Stylus Phone

    A bigger upgrade from last year in comparison to between the 2022 and 2023 models. Big, beautiful OLED screen, long battery life, and a dependable fingerprint sensor help make this phone a winner. Massive 256GB internal storage and microSD card support assures you that you will never run out of space. The camera could be a bit better, but for a midrange phone, it does the job. I love the feel of the vegan leather on the back, although it does have a mild (non-offensive) odor that takes a couple days to go away. There is also no charger in the box, but pairing it with a 30w wall charger powers it up really fast - and has wireless charging capabilities as well. It is factory unlocked and I use it with T-Mobile with absolutely no trouble with eSIM (it also has a slot for a physical SIM, too). Overall, I love the Moto G Stylus line and this one did not disappoint.

    This phone is incredible for $400. Screen has an amazing picture and is very bright. Coming from a Pixel 6A I am pleased. Camera works well in light - although I noticed some blurry pictures when I'm moving a little too much (pixel Cameras are superior in this regard). BUT photos come out great when I am steady (ish). Stylus works awesome. I can keep quite a few apps open and not have any issues. I do close some apps when working bc I had like 10 open and I felt it slowing down just a tad. Very pleased.

    Speakers are amazing. its fast. Battery life is crazy. Cameras are upper mid tier with ai features they are more than capable and over performing. Not sure why the person gave it a one star but ive pirchased 2 and me and the wife love them. The vegan leather is a nice touch as well and the in display finger print reader is snappy and responsive and the 256gb storage and expandable memory i aint complaing at the price point.

    1. Weak vibration 2. At 50% brightness it is not bright enough. Side by side with a Samsung A54 at 50% brightness, and the Samsung is SIGNIFICANTLY brighter 3. Gmail app looks dimmer than rest of phone. Brightness is not even no matter the app used and it should be 4. Operating system not very intuitive, nor seamless. Not easy finding things that need modifying or adjusting 5. Tried taking a picture in low light. You CAN'T see a thing till you take the picture This is an easy pass.

    At 399 This Phone is a Absolute Beast. If I had A Choice Between This Or The A35 Im Definitely Choosing This Over The A35 Everyday All Day And Twice On Sunday. This Phone Has Features That No Samsung A Series Has. Wireless Charging, Smart Connect(Samsung Dex) and faster charging speeds Plus The Stylus. I Have The Cricket Wireless Moto G Stylus But No Matter The Carrier, All Of Them Are The Same. I Know Alot Of People Give Motorola Alot Of Flack But As Of Lately They Have Been On Top Of It.

    I purchased this from Best Buy and have had nothing but good things to say. I haven't had any problems or issues with anything. I have seen some negative reviews that looked made up. All I can say is this works great for what it is. If you need something with the best cameras and the fastest processor and the thousand dollar price tag then I can't recommend this. But if you want something that will do a good job with just about anything then I will recommend this.

    The phone is fast and responsive. It’s very light more than enough gigs with the added storage. The s pen is great. Battery is pretty good. Can get about 1 1/2 days before having to charge it. It has minor upgrades from last years model, but those minor upgrades makes a difference. I had the iphone 13 and this phone is way faster. Really like it.
