Motorola Moto G72 review – GSMArena.com reviews
“For a smartphone with a high resolution screen and a phone with the best sound quality, choose Moto G72,” reads Motorola’s European homepage, while in India you’d get one “for every color of your life”.
Indeed, the Moto G72’s display is one of its biggest selling points – a 6.6-inch 120Hz OLED with support for a billion colors, and it’s 1080p, hence “high resolution”. As for sound, you get stereo speakers, a headphone jack, and an FM radio, so there’s potential on that front too.
There’s a standout number in the spec sheet, and it’s in the weight department – at just 166g, the Moto G72 is remarkably light, and that’s while packing a 5,000mAh battery. Motorola promises over 2 days of battery life (according to their lab tests), and we can see that to be true, especially with the relatively modest Mediatek Helio G99 chipset, which lacks 5G capability.
In the camera department, we’re looking at a 2+1 rear setup with a 108MP headliner, 8MP ultrawide and 2MP macro, while selfies are supported by a hole-punch unit. 16 MP – a solid mid-range setup by the looks of it. . What you’ll miss is 4K video recording, but that’s the new normal lately in these budget-conscious devices.

Unboxing the Motorola Moto G72
The Moto G72 comes in the same navy box as all recent G-series Motos – recycled brown boxes are reserved for the Edge series. The content is more or less standard.
The phone already arrives in a transparent soft silicone case – hardly fancy, but functional nonetheless. Underneath you’ll find the 33W TurboPower adapter and a USB-A to C cable for charging and data transfer.
