Moto G50 Screen Test, Features and Opinion

Phones that reach the market having a fairly affordable price are increasingly common and that seek to be a complete solution in all areas, including connectivity because they include 5G. This is the case of the Moto G50 that we have tested and we are going to tell you what exactly it offers in the screen section.

One of the first things to keep in mind about this model that has a fairly cheap price. And, therefore, it has some characteristics that surprise in a very positive way (the aforementioned connectivity is a clear example), but there are others that take a small step back to adjust the manufacturing cost with what a user has to pay in the market. In other words, the balance has to be assessed.

Moto G50

In what has to do with the hardware, it must be said that the screen integrated in the Moto G50 has dimensions of 6.5 inches and is IPS type. Therefore, in terms of dimensions there are not many buts to put on the device (the complete phone numbers are 164.9 x 74.9 x 9 millimeters, the weight being 192 grams … which both sections comply, but a bit excessive). And here we find one of the first restrictions on the phone, since the resolution is 1,600 x 720 pixels , so Full HD is not reached.

However, there is a rather surprising detail, and this is positive, which has to do with how often you use the panel that you will find in this terminal. This reaches 90 Hz , so it is among the best models in its price range that you will find in the market, always valuing this parameter. Good news, really, and that will be appreciated on more than one occasion when using the phone we are talking about.

Image quality on the Moto G50

One of the first data that you should know when you are reviewing the possible purchase of this terminal is that its pixel density is 269 dpi . This, in principle, allows us to offer a definition that is good enough for day-to-day life, since we have verified that the letters and images are not distorted in any way and, therefore, are more than enough to be able to surf the Internet and have a good using experience .

It is true that, if you compare yourself with some of its rivals in the market that do offer a 1080p panel, a somewhat lower precision is noted when it comes to displaying all kinds of content. It is nothing dramatic, that is completely true, but it is reality. In any case, what we have said we do not believe is something that should cause us to be suspicious about the good work of this phone in the image section.

Do you manage colors well?

In the tests that we have carried out using this terminal for quite some time, we have to say that there is a sufficiently high precision when it comes to representing colors (although it is not the highest dynamic range that it offers of all the input range models that we have tested), and this has been quite clear to us both when playing and when watching videos where the visual experience we believe has to be classified as good. Without bragging, it is true, but it will fulfill perfectly for the vast majority of users.

It is important to mention that among the settings that the Screen has, there is an option to modify the different intensity and color management that is carried out in the Moto G50. In our opinion, the ideal is to leave the device as it comes from the factory. In other words, using the Saturated section, since the other two lower the intensity a bit and lose some “power”. In addition, being an IPS panel, this is quite appreciated to be able to view content in an impressive way (such as in photographs).

Good brightness on the Moto G50 screen

This is something that we liked, since it meets the parameters that should be expected from a current panel for a terminal with the Android operating system. Using the automatic management option of this feature, we have measured power that goes up to 430 nits . This is more than enough to not have any problems both indoors and outdoors when viewing the screen content. The manual option goes down a bit, as is normal, but remains a more than decent 375 nits.

It is important to mention that the detection of luminosity of the place where you are is really good, since the sensors work very efficiently . In this way a quick and effective adjustment is always achieved. Therefore, unless you are especially maniac, we believe that leaving Automatic mode is the best option for this phone in this section, which has convinced us a lot.

A frequency that makes you stand out

This is possibly the best that you will find in the Moto G50 in everything that has to do with the screen that has been integrated. It is possible to reach a frequency of 90 Hz , more than enough so that the fluidity when using the operating system or other applications and executing transitions allows to achieve great satisfaction, since the continuity is really good. A great detail.

As is usual in telephones that offer different frequencies on the screen, there is the possibility of manually adjusting the operation between 60 or 90 Hz. In addition, you will also find an option called Automatic that evaluates the use of the telephone to use one or the other option. It does not work badly (taking into account that there are only two steps and that there are no intermediate measures regarding the frequency), but taking into account the resolution of the Moto G50 panel, we believe that always using the highest option does not it will pose any problem in the consumption section.

Conclusion when testing the display of the Moto G50

This is a model that has lights and shadows, as we think has been clear. An example of the first is the excellent option that offers the frequency, operation and a brightness that is quite good considering that we are talking about an IPS panel integrated in a terminal with a fairly adjusted price that does not exceed 200 euros despite having 5G .

This Moto G50 does not manage color badly, that is true, but its resolution is a handicap that in some cases can be quite important. In addition, the screen has frames that are not bad, but for example the lower one is larger than expected (also, this is a model that maintains notch). In short, a correct phone , where we have not detected light leaks or aberrations when displaying images, but which will not leave you surprised either.
