When it comes to which is better for gaming this is where things get close on. Games like Asphalt, PubG, and call of duty mobile as well and they both played pretty smooth without issues or too much choppiness. If you’re wanting a cheap gaming phone both of these would be acceptable.

One thing we noticed right away is the difference in speaker quality and location, on the LG you have a bottom-firing speaker which isn’t bad for just having one speaker but Motorola takes that one step further and added a second speaker up where the earpieces making it not only louder than the LG but it has a better overall balance and sound and just makes watching videos that much more enjoyable.

Which is better!

There’s a lot of similarities in these two phones there are just too many areas where the Motorola comes out on top especially with 128 Gigabytes of storage compared to only 32 Gigabytes on the Stylo 5. Moto G Stylus can improve on Stylus features and sensitivity now the LG is a lot cheaper right now because it’s been out for almost a year of any reason you would choose the LG Stylo 5 over the new Moto G stylus only if budget constraints.
