A Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 vs. Moto G Stylus 5G face-off seems like the stuff of madness. The former phone is a premium device carrying a price tag as lofty as its feature set, delivering a folding screen and the best processor of any Android phone. the Moto G Stylus 5G, meanwhile, is a $399 budget phone that costs a fraction of the Galaxy Z Fold’s $1,799 price tag and doesn’t offer nearly as many high-end features.
There is one thing these phones at opposite ends of the pricing scale have in common, though — both offer the use of a stylus. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 can support Samsung’s S Pen, which is sold as a separate accessory for the foldable phone. The Moto G Stylus 5G comes with a built-in stylus that enjoys its own dedicated slot within the phone.
The fact that there’s two phones out there with stylus support raises a simple question — which one offers the better stylus-friendly features? After all, if it’s fairly close, you could easily justify some of the tradeoffs that the Moto G Stylus 5G requires, especially if it means getting a phone for $1,400 less.
