Gaming is a breeze for most titles that I've played, so you shouldn't have too much trouble if you like to game on the go. And since Motorola is dedicated to the idea of a (mostly) pure Android experience, your OS is a bloat free experience, which is nice.
But when this phone is on sale, it's an amazing buy.
With no home button, it takes some limited getting used to, but there is a homescreen Moto app that trains the usage very well.
Where there is not 5G it seamlessly switches to 4G or even 3G and in settings there is a option to allow 2G for apps to stay connected.
So, I thought I'd check Motorola and settled on the Motorola One 5G Ace, which is certified with AT&T along with over a dozen and a half of Motorola's other offerings I now have a 5G phone with WiFi calling that won't go extinct whenever 4G sunsets.

Good phone, but competition at $400 makes it a purchase.
At $300 though? Banger. Motorola's abysmal update department. The waterproofing could be better. The plastic? Your mom's 93 Corolla has plastic all across the frame and that's been in more accidents than most of us have had during potty training and survived. But in a world where expandable SD storage, amazing battery life, and 5G capabilities are a plus on a phone that performs well, maybe it is worth the $400...? By gesture driven, I mean there is no traditional "home" button. The display won't be breaking any records, especially since it isn't AMOLED, but it's bright enough. And tbh, this phone isn't small. For some of us who don't care about an amazing camera, that's more than enough. But when this phone is on sale, it's an amazing buy. It's quick and it's long lasting, it is a good enough addition to the Moto family. It is just not worth $400. If you spent $400, well....to be honest, I'd have gotten something else. But never mind that! You got what you got, and what yougot is quite serviceable. With the 6GB Ram variant (which is the only one you SHOULD be getting), you have enough room to enjoy a smooth, fast experience.

So we rebooted the phone from factory settings.
Do not purchase this phone if you want to use your phone to access the internet or make reliable phone calls. It's only useful for playing games and using streaming platforms (as long as you're on WiFi). I thought I would try a budget smartphone but you really do get what you pay for. Camera quality is horrible, had problems focusing. Also battery life is no where near a full day of use. I wouldn't even recommend this phone to Joe Biden. If you are on Sprint network, make sure you can still get SIM card specific to this device. I spent numerous hours with Sprint customer service and two store trips to determine that SIM kit needed not available in my local stores and could not be ordered by customer service. Had to return phone as could not activate. If I wanted google this much I could’ve gotten a Google phone. I’m sure that this review will never see the light of day. Just a horrible phone. If this is not a problem for most people than I would suggest this be a good phone. For me, it is a no due to Google. I do not like the fact that every time I get into another screen it seems like I have to put in some sort a Google password.
