We’ve been using the new Moto G73 5G, a phone that offers 5G and some key upgrades over the Moto G72 (review) in a relatively compelling price point. But it’s also got some compromises.
One of the biggest is a lack of a P-OLED screen with 1 B colours. Another is the 108 MP primary camera.
The Moto G73 5G has a 6.5-inch display that’s supported by a 120Hz refresh rate. It also features a centre-aligned punch-hole cutout on the top.
The screen is a full-HD+ panel and has a 20:9 aspect ratio. It’s not a high-end panel, but it offers decent viewing angles and good color reproduction.
This is a display that you’ll want to enjoy, especially if you spend a lot of time reading content or watching videos. The screen’s resolution is 1080 pixels per inch and the color depth is 128 bits.
The phone measures 161.4 x 73.8 x 8.3 mm (height x width x thickness) and weighs 181 grams. It’s quite light and thin, which makes it comfortable to hold and use.
The Moto G73 5G comes with a flagship-grade 50MP main camera that offers great clarity, detail and color accuracy. Its 2um Ultra Pixel technology has 1.5x bigger pixels that capture four times more light, which results in stunning images.
The device also features a 16MP front camera that is useful for taking selfies. It also has USB Type-C port for data syncing and charging, along with Dolby Atmos certified stereo speakers.
As for the hardware, the Moto G73 is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 930 SoC. It pairs with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
The Moto G73 5G comes with a 5,000mAh battery, which is quite standard in today’s smartphones. It can offer up to a day of battery life on moderate usage.
To extend its battery life, you can use the Ultra power-saving mode that limits screen brightness and contrast, disables location services and connectivity, and sets a shorter screen timeout. You can also set the phone to use Bluetooth and GPS only when it’s in a Wi-Fi-connected location.
The Moto G73 5G is an all-rounder phone that offers great performance, an impressive camera, and a clean software experience. It is also available at a reasonable price in India.
The Moto G73 5G delivers snappy performance when it comes to launching apps, playing games, or watching videos. However, the device may get heated if you run heavy loads for long periods of time.
The Moto G73 is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 930 SoC paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB user-expandable storage. It is a great choice for users who want fast processing speeds and excellent battery life.
The device also features a 50MP camera and Ultra Pixel technology that captures 1.5x larger pixels to provide incredibly clear and bright photos in low light. It also has Dolby Atmos stereo speakers for immersive audio experience.
The Moto G73 5G runs on near stock Android 13 out of the box. Motorola has done a great job in terms of the software, and it’s close to what you get in a premium mid-range phone.
The phone also comes with some interesting features like Moto Secure and Family Space. These are aimed at keeping your privacy and security in check.
Under the hood, the phone packs a MediaTek Dimensity 930 SoC. It’s paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which can be expanded by up to 1TB via memory cards.
