The march of the Motorola’s continues as the mobile phone legends make a comeback with mid-tier Android based smartphones for everyone.

Having just finished off the moto g04, the lower end offering in their mid level smartphones, we take a step up with the moto g24.

Offering the same LCD screen size at 6.5 inches, as you would expect, the moto g24 has a few more chops than its sibling.

Dual cameras are on the back, coming in at 50MP for the main camera and a 2MP macro.

Now the macro is outstanding. For those that like to do extreme closeups the moto g24 excels.

There’s a few more camera modes on offer too, Portrait, which features a real bokeh effect, Slow Motion for video and again a Night mode… that was better than the g04 but still definitely not quite there.

The front ‘selfie camera’ weighs in at a low 8MP. This is still enough for video calls, vlogging and snaps are still sharp enough for those that want to take those awe-inspiring selfies.

Under the hood we get 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. This can be expanded upon via microSD, and likely if you are going to be using the video which records at 1080p / 30fps your internal 128GB is going to chomped up real quick.

Crunching the data is an Octa Core processor. It’s good enough but you’re not going to be able to be a multi-tasking wiz on the moto g24.

The stuttering and lag of Android 14 experienced on the moto g04 was also prevalent on the g24.

While it is sporadic, there was, at times, noticeable delays when using gesture based control of the phone.

Battery wise, you’ll be set for a few days (depending on usage of course).

Given that the moto g24 is not a powerhouse of a smartphone, there was no game time or anything too heavy. Streaming media, general web browsing, using social apps and emailing on a day to day basis the 5,000 mAh battery managed to last almost 2 days from a single charge to 10%.

As mentioned, you’ll not be able to do anything too taxing on the moto g24, its limitations are both the RAM and the processor, so given that this is a general use phone, with a very sharp camera, you’re not likely to place too much strain on the battery.

The moto g24 is a fairly good all-rounder for a mid-tier device. It has a more than decent set of lenses for family, travel, pet and more snaps and has a super reliable longevity when it comes to battery.

For a first smartphone, or a secondary to travel abroad with the moto g24 is excellent.
