Today, Motorola is announcing its 2021 lineup of Moto G smartphones, along with the all-new Motorola One 5G Ace. As always, it's all about bringing value to the mid-range. In fact, this year's Moto G series starts at a lower price; you can get the Moto G Play for $169.

All of these devices have some nice, big batteries. With the exception of the Moto G Stylus, the rest of the lineup - the Moto G Play, Moto G Power, and Motorola One 5G Ace - comes with 5,000mAh batteries. Since the Stylus needs room for the pen, those devices get 4,000mAh.

They also have bigger screens. The Moto G Play and Moto G Power are still HD+m and they come in at 6.5 and 6.6 inches, respectively. The Moto G Stylus and Motorola One Action are both FHD+, and they come in at 6.8 and 6.7 inches, respectively. Motorola even has some new software that lets you run split-screen apps on the new larger displays.

As for the camera, everything except for the Moto G Play comes with a 48MP f/1.7 main sensor, using quad pixel technology for better low-light performance. Those three devices also come with 2MP macro sensors, although they don't have the ring lighting that we saw in the One 5G. Both the Moto G Stylus and the Motorola One 5G Ace come with 8MP macro sensors as well. As for the Play, that has a 13MP main sensor and a 2MP depth sensor.
