Probably designed with productivity in mind, the Motorola Moto G Pro is a stylus-equipped smartphone whose pros and cons include a 6.4-inch IPS screen with a 19.17:9 aspect ratio and a 2300 x 1080 Full HD+ resolution that we think could have been bumped up to 2K-1440p (otherwise known as Quad HD), if only to line it up with some of the best phablets featured here on Phonerated. That said, 6.4 inches of screen space could still appeal to those who are heavily inclined to multimedia and photo-editing.
Speaking of multimedia, its pros include a triple-lens primary camera , which consists of a 48-megapixel primary lens with the Quad Pixel technology (for a 1.6-micron pixel output), a 16-megapixel Action Cam with a 117-degree viewing angle, and a 2-megapixel Macro Vision cam for macro shots of up to 2cm. It captures Ultra HD or 3840 x 2160p videos and it comes with laser autofocus. As for selfies, it features a tolerable 16-megapixel f/2.0-aperture front camera -- check out some of the leading selfie smartphones here.
When it comes to hardware, the G Pro packs just about enough to hold its own ground versus some other high-tier stylus smartphones. It runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 eight-core processor peaking at 2GHz and an Adreno 610 graphics engine. Sadly, its 4GB-only RAM count winds up as a con to us, especially since a good number of competing 6-inchers with roughly similar specs pack 6GB or even 8GB on that front.
For power, this Moto G edition relies on a 4000mAh battery infused with Motorola's signature 15W TurboPower charging technology . It is also loaded with 128GB of on-board storage, which can be expanded by up to 512GB using an external memory card. Keep in mind, though, that wide-screen phones with 256GB of built-in memory were no longer that hard to find around the time of this specs-driven review. Joining the Moto G Pro's list of pros and cons are a rear-mounted fingerprint detector, a water-repellent finish that seems to be commonplace among Motorola's high-end smartphones, and the Android One (Android 10) operating system.
Coated in Mystic Indigo, the Moto G Pro makes for a fitting choice for those who put a premium on productivity.
