Motorola takes a step forward with the new Moto g100, its first economic flagship, and the first mobile to debut the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 870. Previously shown in China under the name Motorola Edge S, it now arrives in the global market under the classic Moto G family. A series of phones that once represented the best of the mid-range and is now updated to try to carve a niche as a cheap flagship.

These are the features of the Moto g100, which will be Motorola’s flagship for the first half of 2021 and arrives with a 90 Hz panel, triple rear camera, up to 5,000 mAh battery, and the new ‘Ready For’ mode to get a desktop experience, very much in the style of Samsung DeX.

The main novelty of this Moto g100 is the presentation of ‘Ready For’, its new platform to get a desktop experience. It works both with a dock and with a direct cable.

Once connected, the user will still be able to receive calls and record video calls, but we can also move games or mobile applications to the big screen, adapting its interface to take advantage of the desktop format.

With Ready For, users can connect accessories such as a keyboard, mouse, or gaming controller for control, without having to install any additional software. Both via cable and Bluetooth.
