Motorola is back in charge. The company has just presented a good battery of devices, the most striking and powerful being the Motorola Moto G200. It is a smartphone that mounts the Snapdragon 888+ processor and promises to offer a premium experience at a very interesting price.
The Motorola Moto G200 will be available in Europe at the end of November for a price of €449.99. It will be available in an 8/128 GB version and in blue color. Having made the introductions, let’s get to know it better.

Big and without skimping on hertz
As always, we start by talking about the design. The Motorola terminal has no big frills, but the firm has opted for a more sober design, with a simple rear and a module in the upper area that houses the three cameras, which we will talk about a little later. It weighs about 200 grams and has a thickness of almost nine millimeters, so it is rather big.
As it has an IPS display the fingerprint reader could not be integrated under the screen, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have one. The Moto G200 has a fingerprint reader on the side and, in addition, a dedicated Google Assistant button on the left side. What it doesn’t have either is a headphone jack.
As for the display, the Motorola Moto G200 incorporates a 6.8-inch IPS/LCD panel with FullHD+ resolution and 144 Hz refresh rate, which is not bad at all and is on par with the refresh rates we see on much more expensive handsets. The screen is perforated at the top to house the internal camera and reduce the bezels, although the latter is still present.
No lack of power
Motorola has not skimped on components. The company has equipped its new high-end device with 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB of UFS 3.1 internal storage to go along with the already well-known Snapdragon 888+ processor. On paper, the device’s performance is promising. We will have to wait to test it to find out for sure.
On the other hand, the operating system is Android 11 (with the Motorola layer, which is very similar to Android Pure with some additional settings). One of the new features is that we can connect the mobile to a monitor or a TV and use it as a PC, a solution similar to the Samsung Dex. All this is given life by a 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging, but they are wireless charging.
Finally, and in terms of cameras, the rear set is composed of a 108-megapixel main sensor with UltraPixel technology (combines nine pixels in one), a 13-megapixel wide-angle, and a two-megapixel depth sensor. Selfies are left to a 16-megapixel sensor (which, again, combines four pixels into one for more light).
Pricing and Availability of the Motorola Moto G200
As mentioned above, the Motorola Moto G200 will be available in an 8/128 GB version and in blue. It will be priced at €499.99 and will be available in Europe in the coming weeks.
