Full Story

Oh, guess what? Outta nowhere, Motorola just dropped not one, but two new mid-rangers earlier today. And hey, unlike the Moto G04, G24, and G24 Power that recently made a splash, the Moto G 5G (2024) and Moto G Power 5G (2024) are actually making their way to the US. That’s right, we’re talking full-on North American availability here. They didn’t just hint or beat around the bush; they laid out all the deets – release dates, prices, and even which US carriers are getting them.

Now, the Moto G Power 5G? It’s a bit of a beast. Bigger, faster, but not hitting your wallet any harder. It’s the second round for the Moto G Power series with 5G, but don’t expect any wild changes from last year’s model. Still packs that hefty 5,000mAh battery and the 50MP camera with Quad Pixel tech. But, oh boy, the design’s got a bit of a facelift. We’re talking sharper corners and some pretty snazzy colors – Midnight Blue and Pale Lilac. And get this – it’s got that sleek vegan leather back that used to be only on the pricier Motorola models.

Here’s the kicker – the Moto G Power 5G (2024) is pegged at $299.99. “Universally unlocked” – whatever that means – available at Amazon, Best Buy, and Motorola’s own site starting March 29. That price tag? Same as last year’s model. But here’s the twist: this year’s model bumps up the RAM to 8GB but cuts the storage in half to 128GB. Probably had to make some room for that bigger 6.7-inch LCD screen and the snazzier 120Hz refresh rate and 30W charging speed. Still, for an Android 14 phone with a MediaTek Dimensity 7020 processor, not too shabby for 300 bucks.

But wait, there’s more. If you’re pinching pennies, keep an eye out for the Cricket Wireless launch on March 22. And after that, it’ll pop up at T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, AT&T, and a whole bunch of other places. Deals and discounts? You bet.

Now, for the Moto G 5G 2024 – it’s kinda hard to believe. It’s cheaper than its predecessor but still manages to throw in some sweet upgrades. Available unlocked in the US come May 2 for just $199.99. But T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile get first dibs on March 21. And then, like a rockstar on tour, it’ll hit up all the major carriers.

This budget beast boasts a 120Hz display, a zippy Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 processor, and yep, that same chic vegan leather design as its pricier sibling. Plus, a beefy 5,000mAh battery that charges at 18W and a generous 8GB RAM with 128GB storage. Sure, the 1612 x 720 screen resolution and the 2MP macro camera might not blow your socks off. But hey, it’s running Android 14 straight out of the box, which is pretty sweet for its price.

So, there you have it. Motorola’s latest offerings are shaking things up with a mix of style, speed, and value. Whether you’re all about that budget life or just looking for a solid mid-ranger, Motorola’s got you covered.
