Short description Motorola Moto G8

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a great camera that has 3 modules (16 MP Wide, 8 MP UltraWide, 2 MP Macro), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Motorola Moto G8 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Versions: XT2045-1.

Important update: this model is updated to Android version 11.
Check the availability of the update version in your region on the manufacturer’s website.

Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Motorola Moto G8 introduced a company Motorola in March 2020. It has Android version 10, which if you want, you can update to version 11.

Well, what can I say, Motorola Moto G8 is a smartphone of 2020 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Screen, body and battery

In the case Motorola Moto G8 thickness 9 mm is placed battery for 4 000 mAh and a very large IPS LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 6.4″. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. The screen is very close to the edges of the case, which also improves the ergonomics of using the phone with one hand. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 8 MP with a regular lens. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment weak cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 16 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment very good cameras. You can buy this smartphone. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Motorola Moto G8 received 8-core processor Snapdragon 665. The amount of RAM in it is 4 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 64 GB. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSDXC, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for Motorola Moto G8: buy or not to buy?

$170 is the price for Motorola Moto G8 at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a fast processor, a huge touch screen, with a very good main camera, and with a conventional front camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? This model received a very good battery with increased capacity.

Motorola Moto G8 will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.
