Motorola Moto G Power and Moto G Stylus these two new affordable smartphones are announced yesterday by Motorola. These low-cost devices boast big batteries, triple camera setups, and Motorola’s tasteful software. More importantly, they have price points that fall below $300.
These two are the best budget phones on the market. The Moto G Stylus and the Moto G Power continue that reputation with bigger screens, faster processors, better cameras, and new features. The Moto G Stylus, in particular, stands out as one of the few Android phones available in 2020 with a built-in stylus.
For Moto G phones, Motorola is dropping the numeric name scheme it’s used since the original Moto G launched in 2013. That said, the new phones are effectively the G8 successors to last year’s G7 lineup in all but name. (The $299 Moto G Stylus replaces the G7, while the $249 Moto G Power replaces the Moto G7 Power.)
The new screens look better than ever, and the switch to a hole-punch camera over a notch makes them look like more premium devices. Neither of the new Moto G phones will blow anyone away with specs or features, but considering the price point they’re competing at, they’re impressive devices.
Moto G Stylus And Moto G Power Have Lot In Common
On the front of both is a 6.4-inch, 19:9 FHD+ display with a 16-megapixel hole-punch camera. Their processor has been bumped to a Snapdragon 665 chipset, which provides enough power for the new triple rear-camera systems on both phones. Both devices also feature 4GB of RAM, stereo speakers, and Android 10.
If I talk about the design then they both have shiny plastic exteriors that house a 3.5mm headphone jack and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The Moto G Power is a bit thicker and heavier, thanks to its larger battery. Unfortunately, there’s still no NFC or wireless charging. which is frustrating, even considering the budget price tags here. The phones also feature a “water repellant” design but are explicitly not waterproof.
The differences between the two phones lie mainly in their eponymous features. The Moto G Stylus, as one might guess, has a stylus. It’s not quite as capable as the Galaxy Note 10, Motorola’s stylus is completely analog. With none of the fancy Bluetooth linking or camera shutter buttons featured on the Note’s S Pen. But Moto G power does have a few software tricks up its sleeve here, like Moto Note, a lightweight note-taking application that pops up when you pull out the stylus when the phone is locked. There’s also a customizable quick-launch menu that hovers in the corner of the screen.
One Has Stylus, While Another Has Giant Battery
Moto G Stylus has a lack of more advanced tech, but then also it feels pretty nice to use. It also costs a fraction of Samsung’s stylus-equipped flagship. Which could make it a good option for those who prefer the pen-based approach without wanting to spend premium prices.
On the other hand, The Moto G Power, offers a larger battery 5,000 mAh, compared to the 4,000 mAh battery on the pricier Moto G Stylus. With that massive battery combined with the mid-range processor. Motorola says that the Moto G Power should last up to three days on a charge.
Other Big Difference
Both phones feature a triple camera setup on the back, but the specs are very different between the two. The more expensive G Stylus got more of Motorola’s love here. There’s a 48-megapixel main camera that shoots quad-pixel 12-megapixel stills and features a night vision mode. Along with a 2-megapixel macro lens, which can focus on objects that are just two centimeters away.
The Moto G Stylus’ most interesting camera is the dedicated 117-degree ultrawide video camera. Which Motorola debuted in last year’s Motorola One Action. Like the One Action, the 16-megapixel sensor here is physically rotated so that it shoots horizontally oriented video when the phone is held vertically. And it’s paired with software algorithms that promise to reduce shakiness during action shots. It’s not quite a substitute for a Go Pro, but it’s a fun camera to play around with.
The Moto G Power has a 16-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel 118-degree ultrawide camera. And the same macro camera as the Moto G Stylus. It also offers half the internal storage as the Moto G Stylus, which has 128GB compared to the Moto G Power’s 64GB. Both phones offered upgradable microSD card slots, though, should you need more space.
What’s The ‘Ware?
The Moto G Power and Moto G Stylus ship with Android 10. The software will, of course, be enhanced by Motorola’s classy additions. For example, the Moto App allows users to fully customize the always-on display, as well as set gesture controls, such as chopping the phone twice to turn on the flashlight or twisting your wrist to launch the camera.
Something new this year is Moto Gametime. This function allows people to make adjustments to notifications and power settings for the best gaming experience. If I talk about the Stylus, the new Moto Note app opens automatically every time you remove the stylus. You can draw, write, or otherwise scribble something on the screen and the phone saves it automatically. Neat.
