Moto G200, Realme GT Neo 2 & Apple Self-Service Repair | Fast Charge 92
Motorola drops five phones at once, Realme brings a new mid-ranger and its first tablet to Europe, and Apple wants you to fix your own damn phone

Didn’t everyone get the memo that it’s the end of the year and they’re supposed to stop launching phones?
Motorola just dropped five new G-series phones, led by the
Moto G200: a surprisingly powerful Snapdragon 888+-powered device that’s targeting the mid-range market at €449. It’s joined by the Moto G71, G51, G41, and G31, with prices ranging down to €200 – even with waterproofing across the lot of them.
Realme also held a launch event this week, though at least this was primarily for the European launch of devices we’d seen elsewhere. Still, the
GT Neo 2 looks like a very competitive mid-range option (
read our review to find out why), and the
Realme Pad marks yet another major Android brand throw a new tablet out into the market.
Finally, Apple has taken the major step of letting iPhone owners do their own repairs. The new
Self-Service Repair programme will let consumers buy tools and parts to repair their own phones, and eventually MacBooks and more. Is this a revolutionary step towards sustainability by Apple, or just San Cupertino bowing to regulatory pressure before it gets forced to?
