Motorola has made a name for itself with its budget-friendly smartphones offering great quality for affordable prices, and the G32 is no exception with a range of specs designed for a great entertainment experience.

You’ll get a 6.5 inch FHD+ ultra-wide display providing a big edge-to-edge viewing experience, with a 90Hz refresh rate for better screen clarity. To go with the great viewing experience, Motorola has also included two large stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos audio with improved bass and more clarity. Considering many cheap phones usually include only a single speaker  — and the quality isn’t always fantastic — this could be a great feature if you like to watch videos and listen to music without headphones.

The Moto G32 includes a Snapdragon 680 octa-core processor and Adreno GPU, plus 4GB of RAM. As for the battery, Motorola has included a hefty 5,000mAh battery along with TurboPower 30 fast charging capability. There’s 128GB of built-in storage and the G32 also includes up to 1TB expandable MicroSD storage. To unlock your phone, there’s a side-mounted fingerprint reader and also face unlocking.

When it comes to the cameras, you’ll get a triple rear camera system with 50MP main lens, 8MP ultrawide lens with depth sensor, and a 2MP macro lens, along with a 16MP front-facing camera. There’s also Quad Pixel technology to improve low light photos, and ultra-res mode to help capture clearer outdoor shots.

The Motorola Moto G32 is available in Mineral Grey and Satin Silver colourways for $299 AUD RRP, from retailers including JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys, Harvey Norman, Big W, Mobileciti, Officeworks and the Lenovo online store.
