Short description Motorola Moto G9 Play

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 3 modules (48 MP Wide, 2 MP Macro, 2 MP Depth sensor), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Motorola Moto G9 Play 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).

Disclaimer. The table shows the main technical characteristics of the device. For a full list of features and capabilities of this model, see the manufacturer’s website. We can not guarantee that the information on this page is 100% correct.

Android version and market relevance

The company Motorola in August 2020 officially announced its new smartphone Motorola Moto G9 Play in the series of mobile devices Motorola Moto. In our subjective opinion, this year one of the important parameters for smartphones has become support for 5G networks, and this new model, unfortunately, it did not receive such an opportunity and will not be able to work in 5G networks. Therefore, if this is important to you, then go to our page in the catalog where all 5G smartphones are assembled.

“Out of the box” on the new smartphone installed Android 10, which did not receive any version updates. And besides, it is important to note immediately that the model Motorola Moto G9 Play supports two SIM cards (view all smartphones with 2 sim cards in the catalog).

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Motorola Moto G9 Play screen, we were assigned to a segment phablets (smartphones with a huge screen), considering that the bezels around the screen are very small (all smartphones with an edge-to-edge screen). See for yourself, here is IPS LCD-screen with diagonal 6.5″ and with a drop-like notch for selfie camera and sensors.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Motorola Moto G9 Play the case turned out very thick — 9.2 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 5 000 mAh. 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): 48 MP Wide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment super cool mobile cameras. Directly without hesitation can buy this smartphone and enjoy your photos and videos shot on it. 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

Smartphone Motorola Moto G9 Play received a 8-core processor Snapdragon 662, RAM 4 GB and built-in memory 64 GB. Also there is support for memory cards microSDXC.

Price for Motorola Moto G9 Play: buy or not to buy?

So we told about cheap powerful smartphone Motorola Moto G9 Play with a huge screen, chic main camera and weak frontal, and still there is a super-capacious battery.

All these characteristics in 2020 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in August 2020 at a price of $170. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.

Before you buy Motorola Moto G9 Play, be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if Motorola Moto G9 Play is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.
