Affordable 5G handsets are now starting to hit the market so if you’re looking to upgrade to take advantage of the blistering speeds, the Moto g50 5G is a solid pick. I currently have the g50 5G for review and it’s built like a tank, handles apps and games like a boss, and has a great camera setup for both stills and videos for the budding creator. What’s not to like?

It’s also up for pre-order until September 10, which would allow you to get it with the Lenovo HD100 Bluetooth headphones for free! The HD100 is a decent pair of cans and certainly miles better than the included earpod-style wired headset. So if you’re in the market for a budget 5G handset, the Moto g50 5G would be hard to ignore.

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
