Review of the Motorola Moto G8 Power, follow-up to one of the best budget smartphones of recent times, including full camera test, battery life run-down and everyday opinions. The Moto G8 Power once again sports a 5000mAh cell like the G7, but also updates the specs and boasts a fresh quad lens rear camera. So is it an essential affordable handset for 2020?
Known only as the ‘G Power’ in the States, this Motorola blower costs £230 in the UK – a similar price to the G8 Plus, which launched end of last year. Once again you have a sizeable Full HD display, stock Android (this time a bit of Android 10) and respectable enough budget performance. However, the Power also packs in a bigger battery and different camera hardware.
I’m more of a fan of the photo quality from the Plus phone, but the Moto G8 Power will do for everyday shots and video. Likewise, the longevity is solid if not quite as stunning as the previous generation device. But if you’re into movies and media, no worries. Motorola has packed in stereo speakers, Dolby audio and a headphone jack, to compliment the crisp and colourful screen.
