Motorola’s G100 midrange battery champ is now available in the US

After launching the Moto G100 in Latin America and Europe earlier this year, Motorola is now offering it in the United States. For $599, it has midrange specs like a large 5,000mAh battery, 5G, and a 90Hz screen. Motorola is providing a $100 discount off the full retail price from now through August 5th.

The G100’s US carrier compatibility has two key caveats: it’s a GSM-only phone, so it’ll function on AT&T and T-Mobile but not Verizon, and its 5G connectivity is limited to T-5G Mobile’s network.

Aside from that, it appears to be a good intermediate tablet, but at a premium price. It has an 8GB RAM Snapdragon 870 processor, sub-6GHz 5G, and a 6.7-inch 1080p display with a 90Hz refresh rate.

This year’s Motorola phone launches in the United States have been concentrated in the $200-400 area, making the G100 one of the more expensive handsets the company has released recently in the United States.

While a large battery, faster-refreshing screen, and a higher-tier chipset seem appropriate for its $599 price tag, its lack of IP-rating and extensive carrier / 5G compatibility may put it at a disadvantage when compared to similarly priced competitors like the Samsung A52 5G or the Pixel 4A 5G. (if you can still find one).
