The Moto G82 5G is the latest and the most premium addition to the G series from Motorola and it sits at the top of the stack. This smartphone also breaks the Rs. 20,000 price barrier, taking the G series to a higher price band for the first time. Motorola has equipped the G82 5G with a 120Hz pOLED display, stereo speakers, and a 50-megapixel camera with OIS. Powering it is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC, which makes for a very interesting combination of specs for its price. I got to spend some time with the Moto G82 5G and here are my first impressions.
Motorola claims that the Moto G82 5G is the slimmest and the lightest smartphone in its segment. It measures 7.9mm in thickness and weighs 173g. The Moto G82 5G has the same boxy design we’ve seen on Motorola’s latest Edge series such as the Motorola Edge 30 (Review), and the recently launched Moto E32s (First look). The frame of the phone is flat and is made out of plastic.
It has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on the right that’s integrated with the power button. The volume buttons are also on the same side, but reaching them is a bit of a stretch. The volume buttons don’t protrude much but offer decent feedback when pressed. The Moto G82 5G has a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and a speaker at the bottom. On the top, it has an additional microphone and the earpiece acts as the secondary speaker for stereo sound. The Moto G82 5G also has an IP52 rating for resistance against light splashes of water.
