Motorola G series phones are everywhere on the Indian market, and each is different. The brand-new Motorola Moto G62 5G has a 120Hz screen, stereo speakers, and a big 5000 mAh battery to start competing in the mid-range market. Also, the new Moto G62 has 12 5G bands that will make it easy to connect when 5G comes to India.

Moto G62 5G Design and Building

The Moto G62 doesn’t look like anything new. In terms of how it appears and how well it is made, it is like other Moto phones. Its plastic body is light and weighs only about 184 grams. At 8.6 mm, the phone is also pretty thin.

It feels good in your hand, but if you hold it for a long time, the sharp corners may hurt your hand. Even though it’s hard to get fingerprints on the back of the phone, it’s easy to smudge. The phone arrives with a TPU case if you require to avoid those smudges.

The back has curved edges that make it easier to hold. The camera unit is oval and has three lenses. This phone’s front bezels are quite big, and the camera hole is at the top. In terms of ports and buttons, the power and volume buttons are on the phone’s right side. 

Moto G62 5G Camera

There are 3 cameras on the rear of the Motorola Moto G62 5G. This has the main camera with 50 MP, an ultrawide sensor with 8 MP, and a macro lens with 2 MP. There is a 16MP camera on the face of the phone for taking selfies. The Moto G52 and G42 also have this same camera setup.

When it comes to the main lens, it takes good photos during the day. The pictures have a lot of detail and look clear. I thought the colors were cooler, except for the grass and trees, which were more true to life.

Low-light pictures were bad, with a lot of grain and colors that were washed out. Surprisingly, the Night mode doesn’t improve the pictures. The details didn’t improve when I switched to an ultra-wide angle camera. The colors were dull, and the exposure was a little too low.

I didn’t see much reason to use the 2MP macro camera because it only took blurry pictures that couldn’t be used. Since there is no way to keep the camera steady, it is even harder to get good macro shots. This phone takes good portraits with good edge detection.

But the shots aren’t quite as sharp as they could be. I would have liked skin tones a little more accurate since people often look too red. The 16MP front camera took pretty good selfies when the lighting was right. The selfies were nice and clear, and the colors were true to life.

Moto G62 5G’s battery and charging

The Motorola Moto G62 5G has a strong 500 mAh battery that can be charged at 20W. Let me be honest: the G62’s battery life is good. It’s easy to use for more than a day. I obtained about 6-7 hours of screen time with my casual use. This included scrolling through Instagram, playing games, watching videos on YouTube, and making phone calls. 

If you don’t use your phone much, you can even use it for two days without plugging it in. When it comes to the charger, the phone comes with a 20W charger, which is pretty slow, given how big the battery is. It’s too bad that it takes more than 2 hours to charge the phone from 0% to 100% fully.

Display for Moto G62 5G

The Motorola Moto G62 has an IPS LCD screen that is 6.5 inches and has a 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution. Moto, for some reason, chose an LCD screen instead of an AMOLED panel, which so many people will not like. The good thing is that it has a refresh rate of 120Hz and a peak brightness of 600 nits.

Even though it’s not the brightest screen out there, it’s still bright enough to use in direct sunlight. The LCD panel is good because the pictures look real, and the colors are bright. The screen is clear and can be seen from various angles. It can’t compare to an AMOLED screen’s bright colors and deep blacks, but it’s fine in other ways.

When you scroll through your fodder or play games, you can feel how smooth 120Hz is. The display is Widevine L1 certified so that you can stream HD content from Amazon Prime and Netflix. On the front, Panda glass is used to protect the screen, which is the same as Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

Performance of Moto G62 5G

The Motorola Moto G62 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset, up to 8GB LPDDR4X RAM, and 128GB of storage. Regarding day-to-day use, the Moto G62 works perfectly and never slows down. Starting with real-world use, the Motorola G62 did great with most things I asked, like scrolling through social media, making calls, watching videos, and sending WhatsApp messages.

It was also easy to switch between apps, and I didn’t have any problems or slowdowns when I did so. I played some well-known games like Call of Duty Mobile and Asphalt 9. On medium settings, both games ran pretty well. COD Mobile was able to run with HD graphics and high frame rates.

There were only small shutters here and there, and the frame didn’t drop much. Asphalt 9 only had 30 frames per second, but the multiplayer was smooth and fun. I tried playing Apex Legends Mobile with HD graphics and a high frame rate to get even more out of it. The game was very slow, and the frame rate kept going down. I even tried turning down the settings, but it didn’t help.

Software and UI for Moto G62 5G

The Moto G62 5G uses the Android 12-based MyUI skin. It works about the same as stock Android. The interface is easy to use and clean.

The best thing about the MyUI is that, unlike other UIs on the market, it doesn’t have a lot of useless software. The user interface can be changed and made to fit your needs. Motorola has also added many useful features, which we’ll discuss in the next section.

The first is Customizability, which lets you change fonts, app icon layout, icon shape, dialect colors, and themes. On the other hand, gestures are some of the most useful features. Doing a karate chop to transform on the LED lamp or twisting your forearm to open the camera app are the old standbys.


The Motorola Moto G62 5G is a good phone with important features like a Snapdragon 695 chipset, a 120Hz display, and support for 12 5G bands. The phone has stereo speakers and good battery life, so it’s good for watching videos and listening to music.

The user interface is simple and clean, so it’s easy to use. But the back camera setup isn’t very good and doesn’t look good either. Also, 20W seems like a slow charging speed compared to the competition.
