Top Positive Review


I decided to switch to the Moto G Stylus (2020 ed.) last year b/c I became very irritated w/ Samsung’s and Apple’s exhortation. I cannot reasonably justify buying a ?premium? phone that costs well over 1K. You can get an ipad now for less than two hundred bucks and now these companies are wanting 1000+ for a phone that doesn’t do that much more.My computer, which I work more on does a lot more, cost less than half of this price. So jumping was more a philosophical change.

Based off my experience with this phone I can tell you the following:

1- The phone has a modest performance and works well comparing the price cost of the newest other flagship phones.

2- The phone does 95% of what other so-called premium phones do w 1/3 of the price

3- The phone charge is insane. I have held one charge for at least three day and spend several hours on the.

4- The camera is outstanding for the brand and takes some nice sunny shots (will add photos later).

5- The stylus pen, although simple, really under-sales itself and does a lot for the price of this.

6- I hardly noticed too much performance distinctions with these phone and other more popular phones. Now granted, I am not trying to play hard-core video games because that’s what a gamer-PC is supposed to do (pun intended), but still compared to the prices of others, I don’t think you can beat this model.

Top Critical Review


I ordered this phone in advance of release, eagerly anticipating my upgrade to a Moto G 6. Imagine my surprise when I transfer sim card, set up hone and sync with google account to find I can no longer receive text messages. I have restarted, restored and resynced my new Moto G Stylus 2021 three times now to no avail. I love the screen. As an avid reader I appreciate the handheld book experience with my Kindle and Libby apps. However, the direct cut to communication with receiving text messages is a complete burr in my backside.
I can make calls. I can use Amazon services such as Music, Kindle, Store, Alexa with zero issues
A major Plus: The speaker for my daughter’s videos on Disney Plus and Amazon Prime are excellent as a handheld media source.
I can use Facebook and send messages. I can receive calls and send text message. BUT I CANNONT RECIEVE TEXT MESSAGES. I have changed messages app between Messages and Verizon Messages, the issue remains. I have contacted google, the issue remains. My Moto G 6 is cracked and sucks as it lags and freezes so I NEED a new phone. I will try again to see if I can resolve this issue, then it will be returned.
Really, living in 2021, it should not be this difficult. The software walkthrough is self evident and I am thoroughly flabbergasted on why I cannot receive text messages.

Update: put sim card in old moto g 6 and received all missing text messages, lots of messages sent by husband to check new phone. In the end I had to return for a refund. Moto G stylus 2021 unable to receive messages

Customer Questions & Answers


Does this moto g stylus 2021 have stereo speakers like the 2020 model did??
Answer: No. Unfortunately it only has one speaker and it is an odd move considering the 2020 version Moto G Stylus phone in fact did have stereo speakers. A downgrade move taking that away for the 2021 version with only one mono speaker.

Is it international unlocked??
Answer:

Motorola sells International phones if you live outside the US. This is a US based phone which can be used for International travel. However, some features and functionality of the device may not be available when using the device outside the US. The warranty offered on this US based phone will also only be honored ??

Answer: That unlocked device shows as compatible with T-Mobile Compatible | supports VoLTE, WiFi Calling, Video Calling. It is always best to check with carrier for compatibility.

Verizon users, are you getting texts and voicemail notifications? If not were you able to have verizon fix it?
Answer:

This answer is for a Moto One 5G Ace (2021). I am using Red Pocket with a CDMAV sim (Verizon).

I read about this issue and various posts recommended changing to “CDMA-less” service. When I contacted Red Pocket they agreed my service needed to be updated. I had to put my sim back into my old Moto G7 and then they were??

Has anyone got the Verizon version of the 2021 stylus? and if so is it working properly?
Answer: Please see the blog here locating a similar question on Verizon with some customers having possible text issues with this phone. Overall, I’m not aware of any global issues .
