Motorola is now selling the Moto G100 in the US, having launched earlier this year for Latin American and European markets. It comes with mid-range specs like a large 5,000mAh battery, 5G and a 90Hz display for a suggested retail price of $599. Starting now through August 5, Motorola is offering a $100 discount off the full retail price.
There are two important footnotes about the G100’s US carrier compatibility: it’s a GSM-only phone, so it works on AT&T and T-Mobile, but not Verizon, and the 5G connectivity is only compatible with the 5G network. T-Mobile network. Other than that it seems to be a respectable midrange device, if the price is a bit on the high side. It uses a Snapdragon 870 processor with 8 GB of RAM, sub-6 GHz 5G and a 6.7-inch 1080p display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz.
Motorola’s US phone releases this year have concentrated around $200-400, making the G100 one of the more expensive devices the company has recently introduced to the United States. While a big battery, faster refresh screen, and higher processor fit the $599 price tag, the lack of IP rating and broad carrier/5G support could set it back against similarly priced peers like the Samsung A52 5G or the Pixel 4A. 5G (if you can find another one).
