In India, the starting price of Moto G34 5G is Rs. 10,999.
The reasonably priced 5G smartphone, the Moto G34 5G, was released on January 9 in India and is currently on sale. Over the course of a decade, the Moto G lineup has evolved. I still recall the initial 2013 release of the Moto G, which had a single 5-megapixel rear camera, thick bezels, stock Android, and some Moto-only features. After a decade, the G lineup has undergone numerous changes, yet Motorola has been able to maintain reasonable prices. The price difference between the original Moto G and the new Moto G34 5G is less. And you get 50 megapixels now instead of 5 megapixels.
Cost of the Moto G34 5G in India
I want to talk about the Moto G34 5G’s price in India before I get started. At Rs. 10,999, the base model comes with 4GB RAM and 128GB of storage. The variant we are reviewing costs Rs. 11,999 and comes with 8GB + 128GB of storage. In 2013, the first Moto G was released for Rs. 12,499, featuring 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. The base model of its predecessor, the Moto G32, cost Rs. 11,999. In other words, the Moto G34 is a reasonably priced 5G smartphone.
The phone comes in three color options: Ocean Green, Ice Blue, and Charcoal Black. We’re reviewing the Ocean Green variant, which has a rear panel with a vegan leather finish.
Review of the Moto G34: Design
Our review unit’s Vegan leather finish gives the Moto G34 5G a pleasant, high-end feel. The iconic Moto logo is located in the center of the rear panel. It’s good that the vegan leather finish is smooth and doesn’t leave smudges or fingerprints. It features rounded-corner flat panels and a small taper where the back panel joins the frame. The phone weighs 180 grams and is only 8 mm thin, which is fairly thin.
With the module positioned in the upper left corner, Motorola has been using a similar camera bump on its most recent G series phones, and I think it looks good. It’s also nice that there isn’t too much branding. Manufacturers writing the phone’s whole history on the back panel bothers me.
Review of the Moto G34: Features and Software
Okay, let’s move on to the topic of specifications. On the Moto G34 5G, Motorola has utilised the well-proven Snapdragon 695 processor. Together with 128 GB of expandable i The phone has a hybrid SIM tray that can hold a microSD card and a nano SIM card or two nano SIM cards. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port at the bottom, Bluetooth 5.1, 5G, dual-band Wi-Fi, and support for all GPS standards for connectivity.
A fingerprint scanner installed on the side of the Moto G34 5G is situated beneath the Power button. Capacitive fingerprint scanners are great, and I much rather use them than in-display sensors.
Review of the Moto G34: Performance
Although it notes in the footnotes that this claim also applies to other Motorola phones in the same price range, Motorola maintains that the Moto G34 5G is the fastest phone in the 5G segment. And it might be accurate. The phone has a decent mid-range chipset, the octa-core 6nm Snapdragon 695 SoC.
After running Geekbench 6, we obtained a multi-core score of 2050 and a single-core CPU score of 912. In terms of GPU benchmark points, it received 1411. The phone received a respectable 3,50,965 score on AnTuTu. I can say that the phone was suitable for daily use because I could complete simple tasks on it without experiencing any lag.
Review of Moto G34’s cameras
These days, reasonably priced smartphones also have respectable cameras—I believe the Moto G34 5G satisfies this requirement. A 2-megapixel macro sensor and a 50-megapixel primary rear camera are included with the phone. A 16-megapixel sensor on the front is used for taking selfies and making video calls.
All of the camera modes are displayed clearly on the user-friendly camera app. There is a 1x and a Macro mode in the main Photo mode. In the Photo mode, you have three aspect ratio options and an 8x digital zoom. Also, Motorola has included a number of filters that you can test out in the Photo mode. In addition, there are four modes: Pro, Slow Motion, Portrait, and Video.
Moto G34 Review: Final Word
The Moto G34 5G will face competition from Xiaomi, Realme, and Poco, all of which have comparable prices. Still, not many phones in this price range come with 5G connectivity, a 120Hz refresh rate, and a rear panel covered in vegan leather.
The Moto G34 5G is a great option if you’re looking for a reasonably priced 5G smartphone and don’t really care about camera quality. In addition, you get a decent display, two speakers, a respectable amount of battery life, and low-res gaming compatibility for games like BGMI. You will have to pay extra money, though, if you require a decent camera setup.
