To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Received in perfect condition thanks to Amazon! The device itself seems ok quality. The build is sturdy, the screen is clear and the camera is ok for the price. The only issue is the phone is about as responsive as a functional adult before the morning brew. Overall it’s good for the price but it may be possible to find better within this price range.
I've had a number of moto phones over many years and all have been totally reliable. I stick with the budget phones as they do everything I need well. My last was a g8 plus now retired but still working fine. I decided to upgrade to the g22 as the price and spec looked tempting. I read a whole bunch of reviews ranging from ok to poor. Went ahead and bought anyway and delighted I did. It runs android 12 which has some nice new features. I don't like the adaptive brightness so just switched it off and loading some apps can be a little slower than optimal but look at the price! Graphics are a little lower than my g8 plus but hardly noticeable and sound is mono. On the plus side everything else. Beautiful large screen, lightweight, battery lasts a long long time. I like the fingerprint reader on the edge of the phone. I don't use the charger supplied but the 15w charger that came with my g8 and it turbo charges quickly. If you want all the bells and whistles you can pay more but at this price point the g22 is a bargain. Streaming channels work fine and smooth. Note also that prices have fallen and now even cheaper.
good point for me: battery life camera size and fingerprint reader.
Bad: phone feels sluggish like trying to use a sony experia m2 now.
overall if u want a phone that does everything a phone does and don't mind ur apps lagging, however ur battery will last longer than a day playing videos all day, or clear photos then this is the phone for u otherwise save for a little longer.
I have been buying Motorola phones for years as they have all been really good, this G22 phone is very poorly designed ,it’s CPU is totally underpowered , it’s painfully slow and I have been unable to answer calls. (The actual purpose of owning a phone)I have reluctantly had to send the phone back. Will pay out a bit more for a better phone. I won’t be buying from Motorola again until they stop making substandard phones like the G22. What a complete let down.:(
