Comparing Motorola’s new Moto G8 Power versus the G8 Plus, to see which has the best camera tech, battery life, performance and everyday features for your needs. Both of these Motorola smartphones are among the greatest budget handsets of 2020, costing under £250 in the UK, yet they pack some impressive specs. My full review of the Moto G8 Power is coming soon, and you can see my final verdict on the Plus model right now here on Tech Spurt.
Design-wise, these devices are both water repellent and a similar size, with a plastic finish. You get a 6.4-inch screen on the Power, a slight edge over its 6.3-inch Moto rival, although either way you get crisp FHD+ visuals and a stereo speaker setup.
Performance is a match, as the Motorola G8 Power packs a Snapdragon 665 chipset just like the Plus. However, the Power serves up a bigger battery and the latest Android 10 OS, while the alternative is NFC support and a sharper primary camera. The optics are very different in fact, with a wide angle and telephoto option on the newer handset. While the G8+ only offers wide angle action for video.
