Moto G200 5G arrives in Brazil with Snapdragon 888+ and 144 Hz screen – Mobile – Tecnoblog

A Motorola made, this Tuesday (7), what is probably his last big launch of 2021 for Brazil. O Moto G200 5G arrives in the country less than a month after being revealed in Europe. The smartphone draws attention for bringing a Snapdragon 888 Plus chip, 8 GB of RAM and a triple camera on the rear — the main one has a 108 megapixel sensor.

Less RAM, more hertz on screen

As you might have guessed, the model is the successor to the Moto G100, a cell phone launched in the first quarter of 2021. When comparing both, the Moto G200 took a few steps back: unlike its predecessor, the model has only one front camera (G100 has two) and has 8GB of RAM (G100 has 12GB).

On the other hand, the screen was slightly more interesting. The component is 6.8 inches in size, full HD+ resolution, HDR10 and refresh rate of up to 144 Hz (vs. 90 Hz of its predecessor) — by default this parameter is set to automatic, but you can manually set it to run at 60 Hz or 144 Hz.

Here, we find a curious detail. The Moto G200 is a more advanced device than the Moto G31 and Moto G71 5G, smartphones that were also announced today for Brazil. Despite that, both models have an OLED screen while the Moto G200 has an IPS LCD panel.

This difference may disappoint some users, after all, OLED displays have better contrast level, deep black and other advantages. On the G200, at least the viewing from various angles is decent and the colors are vividly displayed, as they should be. On the other hand, the maximum brightness is not the most intense.

Outstanding performance, sober look

Equally or more important is overall performance. In this regard, the Moto G200 is beautiful. The smartphone is controlled by the powerful Snapdragon 888 Plus and has 8 GB of RAM. Not surprisingly, this set makes the device provide a fluid user experience and play demanding games without suffering.

If you’re already tired of “cooktop” style camera modules, the Moto G200 might please by bringing the sensors in the rear arranged vertically. These cameras were positioned on a discrete, asymmetrical elevation.

The effect is interesting and represents the only extravagance” of the novelty — overall, the Moto G200 is a sober looking smartphone.

Big numbers on cameras and battery

Speaking of cameras, the rear trio is made up of a 108 megapixel main sensor, another 13 megapixel sensor for wide angle and macro, and another 2 megapixel sensor for depth. The main camera supports recording at 8K and 24fps or 4K at 60fps.

Also on the back, notice that the Motorola logo is displayed over there, but, no, the symbol doesn’t match the fingerprint sensor. This component is present, but on the right side, next to the on/off button.

The battery tends to be one of the strengths of the model. Or at least one point that doesn’t disappoint: the component has 5,000 mAh and is accompanied by a 33 W TurboPower charger.

There’s always a “but”…

One aspect that can be seen as a weak point is the absence of stereo audio in the device. Another is the lack of a microSD slot, but this detail tends to annoy few people, as, on the other hand, the Moto G200 sold in Brazil has 256 GB of storage.

Ah, the model leaves the factory with Android 11. Motorola has guaranteed the update to Android 12, but there is nothing certain for future versions of the operating system.

Moto G200: price and availability

The Moto G200 is already on sale in Brazil, in green and blue. Around here, the official price is R$4,999.

Is it worth spending this amount? We’ll know soon: the Techblog has a unit for testing. The review is out soon. In the meantime, let us know in the comments what you would like to know about him.
