Moto G34 Review: Affordable 5G
Moto G34 5G was recently launched in India. It is one of the most affordable 5G phones available in the country. The phone gets a Snapdragon 695 SoC and a 50-megapixel dual rear camera setup. Here’s our review of the phone.

Top to bottom: Main camera, Macro, Night Vision, and Lowlight

However, you can get some good photos if you try out the Pro mode, but an average consumer isn’t going to spend time trying to get a good shot. Straight out of the pocket, the main camera will only give you good results when used in daylight. The selfie camera is also okay at best. You can play around with features such as Dual capture, which takes photos and videos using both front and rear cameras.

Coming to video performance from the main rear camera, you get 1080p video capture at 30fps, and there is some noise and artefacts even in daylight. There is stabilisation, but it’s only electronic. The video quality also falls apart at night. The Moto G34 5G also lets you shoot videos using the Macro camera, and to my surprise, it managed to take better close-up videos than photos.

Moto G34 Review: Verdict

The Moto G34 5G will be competing with similarly priced phones from Xiaomi, Realme, and Poco. However, not a lot of phones in the price segment offer 5G connectivity, 120Hz refresh rate, and a Vegan leather finish on the rear panel.

If you’re looking to buy an affordable 5G smartphone and don’t really care about camera performance, then the Moto G34 5G is an excellent choice. You also get a good display, dual speakers, pretty good battery life, and you can play games such as BGMI in low settings. However, if you need a good camera setup, then you’re going to have to spend some more money.
