Add-on or pure Android? The Motorola E22(i) lets you choose

Without much fanfare, Motorola briefly introduced a pair of Motorola E22 and E22i smartphones on its global blog. Two cheap smartphones, which might otherwise attract the most attention for their price, have one specific feature. While their hardware is identical, the software used is different.

Motorola E22 and E22i will offer identical hardware

Motorola is not one of the manufacturers that would modify Android in their smartphones through their own unrecognizable superstructure. Rather, it stamps access when into the system implements only a few custom applications and complements it with a few gadgets that pure Android lacks. Nevertheless, the manufacturer released two hardware-identical models. He distinguished them precisely by using the standard Android 12 supplemented with a light superstructure and a bet on Android 12 v “Go Build” created for weaker smartphones directly by Google. New hardware at the same time not quite a typical lowend as, for example, with Realme news or the ultra-cheap Redmi from Xiaomi.

The Motorola E22 and E22i smartphones have a chipset available Mediatek Helio G37 supported now 4 GB of operating memory and 64GB of storage is set up for user data. He would like to take advantage of the smooth operation of the system 6.5″ IPS display with 90Hz refresh rate, but unfortunately only HD+ resolution. Battery with capacity 4 020 mAh although it is not among the record-breaking ones, the given hardware could still be powered for a long enough time. The deployment is a very pleasant surprise stereo speakers supplemented with Dolby Atmos and the fingerprint reader in the power button is just the icing on the cake. It is a pity that the manufacturer does not indicate whether the phones are equipped with NFC, but we are rather skeptical in this regard. The primary camera relies on 16MPx sensor and is complemented by a 2MPx depth of field sensor.

We should have both news items wait even in Europe, however, the manufacturer does not specify specific markets. The price is then set, and that’s at 130 € (approx. 3,200 CZK) for a smartphone Motorola E22i with pure Android 12 Go Edition. A model is prepared for fans of software improvements from the Motorola workshop Motorola E22 for 140€ (approx. 3,500 CZK).

Would you rather choose a variant with a superstructure and “unpolished” Android or a pure system in the form of Android 12 Go Edition?
