Just over a year after introducing the Moto G Stylus (2021), Motorola followed up with the Moto G Stylus (2022), a purported upgraded version of the phone. 

But when looking at the Moto G Stylus 2022 vs. Moto G Stylus 2021, is it really worth the upgrade? That will depend on where your priorities lie, how you use the phone, and which features are most important. To help you break this down, we compare and contrast the two phones.

The defining feature for both these phones is that they come with a built-in stylus for easily sketching, taking notes, editing photos, highlighting text, and more with better precision than you’d get with your finger alone. This is especially useful for students, mobile workers, and those who have larger fingers and tend to find manipulating the small screen of a mobile device cumbersome.
