Motorola has launched another smartphone in its ''Gseries'' in India, the Moto G72. Thisphone is Motorola''s latest mainstreamoffering under Rs. 20,000. In contrast to most other companies launching more and more 5G phones in this price range, Motorola wants to offer a no-compromise 4G phone.

This time, the Moto G72 retail box isn''t "eco-friendly" like it was with the Motorola Edge 30 Fusion (Review). Apart from the device itself, the box includes a USB Type-A to Type-C charging cable, a 33W TurboPower adapter, and a transparent case.

The Moto G72 has a polycarbonate back.

The Moto G72 has been sent a Polar Blue colour variant, which is made with a polycarbonate back and a plastic frame. Despite my colour preferences, I kind of liked this one. However, you may look at the Meteorite Grey colour if you want something more traditional or subtle.
