3/5 Motorola Moto G42 offers a near-stock Android 12 experience with Pixel UI elements. It looks good and lets you tweak the UI slightly, allowing some customisation. However, there are pre-loaded apps, which is very un-Motorola like. We did not observe any advertisements in the UI. (Amritanshu / HT Tech)
