Review of the Motorola Moto G8, yet another smartphone entry to the budget-friendly G-series of 2020. I’ve been testing the Moto G8 as my personal handset for a few days and here’s how the camera tech, performance, battery life and other bits stack up.
The ever-growing range of cheap Motorola mobiles is getting ever more complicated, so check out my comparison of the full family to see which is best for you. I’ve also rounded up my favourite budget smartphones under £200 if your funds are a bit tight.
The Motorola G8 is one of the more affordable handsets in the series, costing less than the Power and Plus models. You have a 720p display instead of Full HD, plus no stereo speaker setup, but the performance is still provided by a Snapdragon 665 platform – backed by 4GB RAM. Battery life is good too, although the Power does offer a stronger return with its 5000mAh cell.
That triple-lens rear camera is unsurprisingly limited, but the Moto G8 can still take good looking photos in respectable lighting. Motorola’s AI features are back on board to help as well.
So that’s my full review, and check out my unboxings and verdicts on the other G-series phones of 2020 to see how they compare.
