Motorola is back with the third generation of its budget stylus phone, the Moto G Stylus 2022, which brings several upgrades over its predecessor.

The Moto G Stylus now features a faster 90Hz refresh rate and a centered punch-hole cut-out for the 16MP selfie camera.

Design & Display

The upgraded handset still features the same 6.8-inch LCD with FHD+ resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. An important upgrade is the 90Hz refresh rate, making writing with the stylus much smoother.

A key feature of the budget phone – the eponymous stylus is stored in the body presenting an affordable way to jot down notes and draw sketches on the phone.

The frame packs a fingerprint scanner on the right side and is available in Twilight Blue and Metallic Rose colors.
