The body of the Motorola G60s is almost 10 cm thick. The device weighs just over 200 grams and has a huge screen surrounded by not the thinnest frames on the market. Although large, it allows most users to use it with one hand.
The front of the Motorola G60s is covered with glass. It has an oleophobic coating that allows no traces of fingerprints to accumulate. The front camera is in the screen and is located symmetrically - right in the middle at the top. The panel in turn is matte. If scratches appear on it, they will be difficult to notice.
The smartphone is available in two colors - gray-green and navy blue. Although they do not offer freshness and brightness, they will appeal to anyone looking for a strict style. Moreover, if you put the Motorola G60s in a case, the color of its body will not be visible.
The Motorola G60s is based on a 6.8-inch screen with IPS matrix and HDR10 support. The colors are nice, the viewing angles are not bad. Brightness and contrast are also on par. Overall, the display is impressive for the price of the device. An important advantage is the image refresh rate - 120 Hz. Let's remember - at G50 it is 90 Hz. As a result, the screen content of the Motorola G60s is smoother and more exciting.
Motorola G60s works on the basis of a chipset of the middle price range. The company has relied on Mediatek Helio G95, which is implemented on a 12-nm process and does not support 5G networks. It consists of 2 Cortex-A72 cores running at up to 2.05 GHz and another 6 Cortex-A55 cores running at 2 GHz. It is equipped with MediaTek HyperEngine technology, which has the task to improve performance in games.
Although the processor is not the latest, it is productive. It is supplemented by 6 GB of RAM, which is enough. The storage is 128 GB and can be expanded using a memory card. Mali-G76 MC4 is responsible for the graphics.
Motorola G60s has a good set of cameras that allow it to compete well in its price range. The back panel reveals a set of 3 modules and one auxiliary - 2 MP for depth measurement. The main camera is 64-megapixel and is wide-angle. This is followed by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 5-megapixel macro camera. In good light you can expect great photos. Quad Pixel technology is used, in which 4 pixels are combined into one and this significantly improves the quality. Finally we get 16 MP photos.
In low light, such as indoors or in the evening, frame quality decreases. There is noise, the colors are not accurate, and the moving objects are mostly blurred. The night mode to some extent copes with the challenge. It brightens photos, but sometimes makes them unnatural.
The macro lens is not the best, but it will allow you to capture spectacular details from a minimum distance of about 4 cm.
The front camera in turn is a single, 16-megapixel. On a bright day you will create beautiful selfies worthy of sharing on social networks.
The camera interface also contributes to the good impression of the Motorola G60s. It is standard, easy to use and offers a range of modern modes.
Motorola G60s has a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh, which for a Moto camera is the minimum for the G series. It has become the gold standard, so to speak. Given the energy efficiency of the processor and the optimized operating system, you can expect a good level of battery life. In standard mode without overload you will have a day and a half or two. Standby time - 14 days.
The smartphone does not support wireless charging, but is equipped with fast charging technology 50 W - Turbo Power. With its help you can fill the charge from 0 to 100% in less than an hour. This is a good indicator for the budget apparatus in 2021.
Motorola G60s is another model of the company that offers modern features at a low price. The device is large, heavy and thick. Its battery has an impressive capacity, which guarantees a satisfactory long time without the need to reach for a charger.
The large and beautiful 6.8-inch screen with a high frequency of updates guarantees maximum satisfaction from working with different types of content. We should not forget the support of 50W fast charging technology.
In addition, Motorola G60s offers a 3.5 mm minijack, memory card slot and pure Android.
