Motorola Moto G82 has 3 cameras at the back and the main camera is awesome. The Motorola Moto G82 main Camera is 50-megapixel ISOCELL JN1 F/1.8. What makes this camera setup even more awesome is that this camera lens is combined with the wide aperture of F/1.8, the wider the aperture the more light will it collect and the more sharp the image and video quality will be. This Motorola Moto G82 can record video at 1080P at 30 FPS. This is amazing the video will contain more details thanks to its good optimization software and the processor. The camera setup is average but can take good shots.
|Triple||50 MP, f/1.8 (wide), 1/2.76″, 0.64µm, PDAF, OIS
8 MP, f/2.2, 118˚ (ultrawide), 1/4.0″, 1.12µm
2 MP, f/2.4, (macro)
|Features||LED flash, HDR, panorama|
As I mentioned above that this 50 MP sensor is good. But this Motorola Moto G82 has 2 more camera lenses. There is another camera sensor of 8MP which is an ultra-wide camera. The field of view is 16mm which is wider. This camera sensor also has some amazing autofocus. This sensor can take amazing shots with high accuracy. Its aperture is F/2.2, which makes it sharp and contains good tons on subjects. This Motorola Moto G82 has an amazing camera setup, with fast autofocus lenses, high sensors, and good software optimization. There is another 2MP macro camera which is useless in most situations because it’s only 2MP.
|Single||16 MP, f/2.2, 22mm (wide)|
When it comes to selfie cameras the Motorola Moto G82 has a single-punch whole camera of 16MP which have the largest pixels. This single-punch whole camera contains some awesome details when it comes to daytime shots. At night time this camera sensor struggles a lot. And what makes me more concerned is about its aperture because its aperture, which is only F/2.2 which means the photos will look not accurate as other smartphones, also this camera will suffer a lot at night because the sensor is not that wide to capture more light thus leaving us in disappointed. The camera video capabilities are also kept at 1080P at 30FPS only.
|Wi-Fi standard||Wi-Fi 5|
|USB type||USB Type-C|
This Motorola Moto G82 is launching with the Wi-Fi 5 which is faster, more efficient, and gives you less latency when compared to the Wi-Fi 4. Which will make the user experience smoother and faster. There is also the support of Bluetooth 5.1. Which is also faster and more efficient than version 5.0. Motorola Moto G82 has the USB type C gen 2.0 support which makes sense because of the 30 watts of fast wire charging so it must need more bandwidth for charging speeds. It also helps with the data transfer because it helps with the faster read and write speeds. Motorola Moto G82 also has NFC support which is also useful. You can pay, and transfer files at high speeds thanks to the NFC support.
|Speakers||Yes, with stereo speakers|

There is also a 3.5mm headphone jack which is good.
|Colors||Meteorite Gray, White Lily|
The Motorola Moto G82 is going to lunch in three different colors. Meteorite Gray, White Lily. MOTOROLA is known for its premium colors with good contexts. I like the Meteorite Gray color because it looks better than these two colors.
The price of this smartphone starts from 330 Euro. This is good at this point because this smartphone provides good specs with a good design. The price is totally worth it.
