A Motorola Moto G8 Review

83

Whether you’re considering upgrading your phone or just picking up a new device, it’s important to understand what features to expect from each model. In this Motorola Moto G8 review, we’ll take a look at the hardware and software of the new device to help you decide if it’s right for you.

Battery life

Considering the Moto G8 Power’s size and weight, its battery is a huge upgrade over the Moto G7 Power’s. The Moto G8 Power packs a 5,000mAh battery that lasts more than a day on a single charge. It also supports a second SIM, which is a great feature that will appeal to some users. The Moto G8 Power’s battery-saver mode will save energy by disabling apps that aren’t in use.

The Moto G8 has a 6.4-inch screen. The display is bright and has good viewing angles. It also supports DRM-protected content, which is a good feature to have.

The Moto G8 Power also supports a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is great. The speakers have a wide soundstage, and they get quite loud. You can also connect external headphones and Bluetooth speakers. The Moto G8 Power supports microSD cards of up to 512GB. It’s also compatible with the Wi-Fi 4 standard.

Display resolution

Among the Moto G8’s key features is its screen. The 6.4-inch panel has a 720p resolution, which is slightly lower than the 1080p resolution of last year’s Moto G7. However, it is more than enough for browsing the web or reading emails.

The display is also the first in Motorola’s G-series to feature hole-punched cutouts. This makes it possible to reduce the size of the phone’s body and add a notch for the front-facing camera. This means you can have an all-screen phone without sacrificing the battery.

In addition to the display, the Moto G8 has a reliable camera and a large battery. While the phone’s display isn’t the sharpest, it has a good contrast ratio and a decent resolution.

LTE performance

Whether you are looking to upgrade to a new 4G phone, or just want good value for your hard-earned money, the Motorola Moto G is a solid choice. It is equipped with the power to handle everyday tasks and a fast, simple camera that takes photos with just a tap of the screen.

The Moto G has a big battery that will last through a day of moderate use. This phone is also very power efficient, and Motorola has taken steps to keep the battery from sucking too much power. The 4,000 mAh battery should last three days on a single charge.

Camera

Fortunately, the Motorola Moto G8 Plus camera produces pictures that are clear and color reproduction is good. The camera app is straightforward and works well. It offers many new features, including HDR, Lens blur, RAW support, and a cinematic pan.

The main camera on the Moto G8 offers two types of lenses: an ultrawide lens with an aperture of f/1.7 and an 8-megapixel shooter. The main camera has phase detection and laser autofocus, while the 2MP camera on the front is a macro sensor. The main camera takes detailed photos, but in low light, the camera struggles to produce warm and vibrant photos.

Plastic rear case

Having a plastic rear case for your Motorola Moto G8 will not only help keep your device in tip-top shape, but it will also protect your device from scratches, dust, and damage. Many cases are designed to be slim and aesthetically pleasing while providing excellent protection. Depending on the model you buy, you can expect to find a variety of options. There are simple, minimalist designs, as well as more complex, multi-layered designs.

The Presidio(r) STAY CLEAR slim case is designed to protect your device from drops of up to eight feet. It features a patented two-layer design that combines high-tech coating and raised rubber ridges for a secure fit. The case also features an integrated stand, which can be positioned anywhere in the horizontal or vertical direction.

Software

Using software for your Motorola Moto G8 is a great way to get the most out of your smartphone. These programs help you manage your files and messages, preview multimedia content and even send SMS directly from your PC.

There are a variety of different PC Suite programs available, and many of them are even compatible with multiple versions of Windows. The Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite PC Suite Software is compatible with both Windows 10 and Windows 8.1. You can also install the Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite PC Suite on Windows XP (32-bit) and Windows Vista (32-bit).

The software package comes with a media management tool, which allows you to play your favorite multimedia content. You can also check for software updates with the help of the Software Upgrade / Repair Assistant tool.
