Motorola G22 is an inexpensive entry-level smartphone that performs well. It satisfies lesser needs and is appropriate for light mobile phone users. It has Android 12 and a great battery life. The IP-certified dust and water protection is a plus for equipment. The camera is poor, the display is dark, and other equipment is minimal.
Motorola G22's equipment list isn't as fresh as dew, but it's fine at 160 euros. IP52 dust and water protection is rare in this price bracket. The NFC chip facilitates cashless phone payments, while Bluetooth 5.0 connects wireless devices like headphones. The headphone output is in addition to the Type-C USB 2.0 port. This is linked to the quick-charging power supply.
64GB of internal memory may be increased using a memory card. The memory card doesn't occupy one of the dual SIM slots, unlike some smartphones.
Old 4G network with 150 Mbit/s LTE speed. ac-WLAN includes WiFi 5, which was succeeded by WiFi 6. Notifications appear on the screen, not the case's LED. Fingerprint or facial recognition unlock the G22 like a PIN.
Performance is ensured by a 2,300 MHz Mediatek Helio G37 CPU and 4 GB of RAM. This is a good price-to-performance ratio for editing emails, perusing the web, and streaming films. Applications shouldn't be overly performance-intensive, especially for graphics.
Display and camera
The 6.6-inch screen offers 1,600 x 720 pixels. The consequence is huge pixel spacing and a low pixel density of 267 ppi. Reading is hazy on the screen. The maximum brightness is just 292 cd/m2. In bright environments, like direct sunshine, it's hard to read. Poor colouring. We estimate 98% coverage in RGB. In DCI-P3, it's 72%. 90 Hz is a good refresh rate. Moving graphics scroll more smoothly, for example.
The G22's poor quad camera also hurts. In daylight, photos are of decent quality, but colours are weak; they seem grey. Poor light reduces image quality. Full HD (1920x1080) videos may only be recorded at 30 fps. No slow motion. There are cheaper smartphones with a better price-to-performance ratio than the G22.
The Motorola's battery lasted over 14 hours. However, charging takes approximately 3 hours. 5,000 mAh batteries can be charged in an hour using today's technology. After 30 minutes on a 10-watt power supply, the G22 can run for 3 hours online with only 21% charge.
