The Moto E22 is Motorola’s new basic that recently arrived in Brazil. Initially available in two versions, he still won a third now in 2023 that brings 128 GB of storage. The model at hand and tested by TudoCelular is the most basic that comes with Android Go. Is it worth it?
Motorola’s new entry-level cell phone brought considerable changes to its design. It has become thinner and lighter, while the rear has a more modern look. The front still sports a wide edge below the screen and a drop-shaped notch. The biometric reader integrated into the power button works well.
The E22 has a 6.5-inch screen with HD+ resolution and a 90 Hz refresh rate. The brightness level is decent and although it doesn’t guarantee good visibility on sunny days, it’s still average for the segment. What is surprising is the stereo sound of the device with good quality and the ability to reproduce bass, mids and treble in a balanced way.
Powering the Moto E22 is MediaTek’s Helio G37 chip. What changes is that the cheapest brings only 2 GB of RAM, but comes with Android Go to try to compensate. Unfortunately, Motorola’s basics still suffer in the multitasking experience and its outdated GPU struggles to handle today’s most demanding games.
The 4,020 mAh battery seems small for today and with the old hardware it ends up not delivering enough autonomy for a day of use. You’ll need to take it easy and avoid playing games or using the cameras too much if you don’t want to be without your cell phone before the end of the day. The recharge time is almost 2 hours, but it is still more agile than some basic ones from other brands.
The photographic set is simple and limits the experience with photos and videos only in well-lit places. Night photos have excess noise, low sharpness and limited contrast as is common in entry-level cell phones. The rear camera records in Full HD, does not have stabilization to deal with shakes, has good focus, but the sound is mono and muffled.
Is it worth buying the Moto E22? If you don’t intend to play games or use many apps at the same time, it can be a good basic phone, especially for its design and stereo sound. To check out all the details, just access the full analysis through the link below:
