Motorola one 5G ace is Metro by T-Mobile’s first 5G device


Metro by T-Mobile today welcomed the latest smartphone to join its roster of devices. Starting today, you can now get your hands on the new Motorola one 5G ace smartphone. 

This is the first 5G smartphone available under the prepaid brand’s lineup. And because of this, they are currently running a promotion for switchers. If you are switching to Metro by T-Mobile, you can get this 5G device under $20. 

Apart from 5G connectivity, the Motorola one 5G ace comes with a 6.7-inch FHD+ display. It is powered by a 2.2GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor with two configuration options: 4GB of RAM/64GB storage or 6GB of RAM/128GB storage. The latter option is exclusively for T-Mobile customers along with other features like IP54 protection. 

The device also comes with three rear-facing cameras: a 48-megapixel main sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. In front, there is a 16-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls. The device also includes NFC and a 5000mAh battery.   

With the Motorola one 5G ace, Metro by T-Mobile users can enjoy full access to T-Mobile’s nationwide 5G network. If you are switching from another carrier, you will only need to pay $19.99 to purchase the device. But if you are an existing customer who wishes to add a line and get this same device, you will have to pay $89.99 instead of the full retail price of $279.99.

The Motorola one 5G ace will also be making its way to T-Mobile pretty soon. To learn more about the device, you can visit this page.

    ¿How is this the first Metro 5G phone?

    Nord N10 better in price and 95% of specs. Only exceptions are countered by something worse: screen size- but not dpi, and battery size- but not charging speed.

    On the One Ace nothing else is better and most everything else lesser- including camera and heavier weight (and Nord already too heavy).

    And the Metro variant’s storage specs are a deal breaker for heavy use these days- 64gb you can easily run out of space even if changing all data storage to external, and at 4gb ram you will eventually get very noticeable lags.

    The Resident Troll

    • I was going to say the same thing!

    • dcmanryan

      You’re not trolling just stating fact. One would assume a site dedicated to T-Mobile and their branding would write factual articles but I guess not.

    • marque2

      I would guess the information that it is Metro’s first 5g phone was on some press release and Christine just copied the info, or else there is something special about this 5g phone (First SA 5g maybe) and the subtle point was not written about.

      • Shaun Michalak

        I think some, if not all of the other 5G phones supported, either from the start, or with a software upgrade, SA 5G.. I believe that the ones that did not support a lot of the stuff was the first generation 5G that came out at the beginning.. The more likely one would be VoNR support.. Very few phones support that, even though they support SA 5G..

        • marque2

          So Metro offers iPhone 12, Samsung S20 FE a Tmobile phone Ryvvl that have 5g.

          I am guessing this is the First Motorola phone offered by Metro with 5g. Which would be amazing in itself since Moto was the first company with a 5g phone.

        • Shaun Michalak

          true, but that is clearly not what they said.. “This is the first 5G smartphone available under the prepaid brand’s lineup.”

    • Cash

      Yes, this article makes no sense. They’ve also had the samsung galaxy a51 5g for months there.

    • Shaun Michalak

      Remember my comment a couple weeks ago.. The one that said “who proof reads these articles because they contradict themselves”.. or something like that.. Well, you just proved my point once again..

      Either the person that put this up knows nothing, missed important info (like it might be the first 5G phone that supports VoNR from Metro), or something like that.. I know a lot of the first 5G phones did not support VoNR, nor do I believe that they could be changed to being able to support it with an update.. But the just, first 5G is down right wrong..

      I have both
      N10 is for music enthusiasts (quad DAC)
      One Ace has good processor and 12 hours SOT.
      However, I put One Ace on line 1 because it successfully collected all messages from previous phones while there’s a problem with N10

        Was that using OP migrate? I use SMS Backup+ (to Gmail) with the imap workaround. (Yeh, I know about the privacy issues. My next experiment will be de-googlefied phone).
        I was kinda ok with the whole migration- although an app here and there had to be manually done. Oxygen needs a bit of fixing, especially also with the redundant power saving. I’m worried about future agenda with cofounder gone.

      Did you not notice > 6GB of RAM/128GB storage? “Latter” should have clued you in. Here > “128GB internal memory (ROM) with up to 113GB available user memory,” was lifted directly from the Metro website.

  • be2

    metro has had the A51 5g, tmobile revvl 5G, the nord n105g and the iphne 12s way before the moto

  • mingkee

    If you say “first Moto 5G phone”, yes
    This phone has pretty good battery

  • xstnca

    LOL well the headline is wrong as they have had 5G devices since last year at Metro. I think they have had about 3 or 4 since last year. Great journalism.

    • marque2

      I think it is the first Motorola phone with 5g offered by Metro.

  • Acdc1a

    First Moto 5g phone. By the way, I’m using this on AT&T and it’s a great phone.

    • marque2

      It is not the first Moto 5g phone. Moto was actually the first company in the world to produce a 5g phone. In fact they built a modular phone so that when Verizon finally came up with a standard for Verizon 5g you could plug in a module to add the 5g feature.

      So no, this must be the first 5g phone that Metro has sold by Motorola.

      • Acdc1a

        Should have said on Metro…first on Metro.

      I can’t go back to 64gb storage or 4gb ram. I don’t game, and despite all datadocspics going on external, I had to uninstall many apps just to try new ones. (I don’t like that combined storage tech, the name escapes me)
      As well lag in chrome (with my bazillion open tabs) was glacial.
      For the next upgrade, hopefully some lower priced fold-type phone materializes- andor they can keep increasing size as much as they want even to 8+”, along with qhd.
      Wishful thinking though.
      I’ll take also a dualfoldable 5G tablet- any OS.
