Motorola is no stranger to making budget-friendly phablets with a stylus—the new Moto G Stylus is the company’s third such phone in recent years, and this seems like another competent entry in that nearly nonexistent category. This model has some nice-to-have features that are usually skipped in flagships, like a MicroSD slot and a headphone jack, as well as increasingly common features in the budget segment, like a fingerprint reader and a 90Hz display.
The 2022 G Stylus isn’t strictly a year-over-year improvement on this midrange lineup, though. Like the 2022 Moto G Power, this model adopts a MediaTek chipset. You could do better for $300 than the G Stylus, but if you’ve justgot to have a built-in stylus you don’t really have any other options, so it’s lucky the G Stylus is a solid value.
