A quick look at the possible use of the Motorola Moto G Stylus (2021) smartphone for mining VerusCoin (VRSC) because of the great offer currently running on Amazon for Tracfone Motorola moto g Stylus (2020), 128GB, Gray – Prepaid Smartphone (Locked) available for just $49.99 USD. Do note that although the product page says 2020 model you are getting the slightly upgraded 2021 version instead (model XT2115DL). The Moto G Stylus is a large 6.8-inch smartphone powered by a Qualcomm SDM678 Snapdragon 678 (11 nm) chipset that has an 8-core processor (2x 2.2 GHz Kryo 460 Gold and 6x 1.7 GHz Kryo 460 Silver CPU cores), 128GB flash memory and 4GB RAM. It is a killer deal specifications wise for that price, so using the device for crypto mining (it is a locked phone!) does sound like a pretty reasonable idea, but the big question is what will be the performance it will offer for mining. It does even come with a charger in the package and not just a USB-C power cable.

The Motorola Moto G Stylus (2021) is a 64-bit hardware with 64-bit software, so good for mining. One thing to note on this model is that you need to have the SIM card inside the device during the initial phone initialization and then you can remove it, most other locked smartphones from Tracfone normally do not require the card to be in for the device initialization. The device itself does not have problems after the initial initialization and there is no need to have active Tracfone phone plan if you are going to use it for crypto mining. So, what about the hashrate that the Moto G Stylus 2021 can provide for mining VRSC? Well, it is very good at about 4 MH/s, slightly faster than what Samsung Galaxy A03s can provide. The drawback here from the larger display and the more powerful hardware – increased power usage compared to other smartphones we have tested such as the A03s for instance. Measuring the power consumption at the wall while the device is mining shows around 3.7 Watts, so efficiency wise not the greatest even though the performance itself is not bad.
