The Moto G Stylus 2022 is a wonderfully high quality cellphone, but it surely’s a significantly better worth at this worth. You get two-day battery life, a 90-Hz LCD display, and three years of safety updates. Performance has truly declined from its predecessor, which is uncommon, but it surely nonetheless runs decently.
