Motorola launches budget-friendly Moto G Pure with two-day battery for $160

The Moto G Pure claims great battery life, but not much else.

What you need to know

  • Motorola launches the budget-friendly Moto G Pure.
  • The device features a large 6.5-inch display, a dual-camera setup, and a 4,000mAh battery.
  • Preorders for the $160 Moto G Pure open up on October 14.

While Motorola isn't known to be much of a challenger against many of the best Android phones, the company has a strong presence in the mid-range and budget segments for making ultra-affordable smartphones. That's where the new Moto G Pure comes in.

The device features a large, 6.5-inch Max Vision HD+ display with an ultra-wide 20:9 aspect ratio for "an immersive experience." Motorola positions the Moto G Pure as a great device for entertainment, thanks to its 4,000mAh battery which it claims provides two days of usage. It's no Moto G Power (2020), but it should still get the job done.

Hopefully, that battery claim will hold up, as the G Pure only supports 10W charging, so you may be waiting a while to top up the phone.

On the rear is a fingerprint sensor along with a dual-camera setup. Unfortunately, only the primary 13MP camera is optical, while the secondary 2MP is a depth sensor for capturing portraits. The Moto G Pure is also capable of FHD 30fps video recording.

Powering everything is a MediaTek Helio G25, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. That said, don't expect the device to do too much heavy lifting, but it should manage plenty of basic tasks. It should also be able to handle a splash or two thanks to its IP52 rating.

Of course, at this price point, you can't expect too much from the Moto G Pure. You won't find a high resolution or high-refresh-rate display, there are no ultrawide-angle or telephoto lenses, no 5G connectivity, and there isn't even NFC. Much of this is par-for-the-course for the best Android phones under $200.

You do get relatively "pure" Android 11 with My UX on top, providing the device with some of Motorola's handy customizations and gestures. The phone is also promised one OS update to at least Android 12.

The new Moto G Pure retails for just $160 unlocked and will be available to preorder in the U.S. through retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy starting on October 14. Verizon will be the first carrier to offer the device, followed by T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, and other carriers in the coming months. The phone will also be available in Canada in the coming months.

How to watch season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy online from anywhere

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department. Based on the trailer for the two show's latest crossover event, after a Station 19 fire truck is hijacked, a patient needs to be brought on foot to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for treatment. Last season of Grey's Anatomy saw Dr. Meredith Gray infected Covid-19 and while in a coma, many characters from past seasons of the show returned to visit her on a beach. Although Mere

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
