Therefore, visually in the Motorola Moto G71 5G you will not see anything exclusive and atypical. The panel has a gradient effect, which many users consider very beautiful.

As for the frames around the screen, they are relatively small. The top and bottom are a bit wider, but the overall picture remains balanced.

In terms of dimensions, the smartphone is not small. At the same time the device is light and thin, the screen is high and narrow. This makes it realistically convenient to use the Motorola Moto G71 5G with one hand.


If before the Moto G series had IPS displays, now the company's developers have decided to rely on OLED. This type of matrix is ​​already present in the Moto G41. Offers juicy colors, better contrast and depth of black. In addition, the brightness is also impressive.

So Motorola Moto G71 5G offers a picture that is beautiful and captivating with its natural colors. The resolution is also adequate - 1800 x 2400 pixels. The only downside is the refresh rate. It is limited to 60 Hz.

It contains two Kryo 660 cores (Cortex-A78) and 6 Kryo 660 cores (Cortex-A55) and is combined with an Adreno 619 video chip.

The smartphone is available in several configurations, in which the storage remains unchanged - 128 GB. There is no memory card slot.

It is time to recall that for some time the software of Moto allows to expand the RAM at the expense of storage. So you can add a little to it in case of need.
