Motorola Announces G Power and G Stylus

Conor Cawley

The affordable phone trend is the gift that just keeps on giving, with Motorola announcing two new budget devices: the Moto G Power and the Moto G Stylus.

As you could've guessed from the names, the two smartphones are equipped with specific features designed for specific users: the Moto G Power features a hefty battery for prolonged use, while the Moto G Stylus features — you guessed it — a stylus! With each phone coming in at less than $300, the days of thousand dollar smartphones (that don't fold in half) is over.

Take a look at some of the in-depth details about each phone so you can decide whether these affordable devices are worth your time.

Moto G Power

While other Moto G phones have boasted impressive battery life — for example, the Moto G8 — this is a different story entirely. The Moto G Power is designed specifically for those without access to a plug on a regular basis, with a massive battery that, if you believe Motorola, will last you three entire days. Other specs include:

  • Battery: 5000 mAh
  • Battery life: 3 days
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 665
  • Operating system: Android 10
  • Storage: 64 GB
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Display: 6.4-inch FHD+ Max Vision
  • Price: $250
  • Available: Spring 2020

The Moto G Power is more than just a pretty battery. Both of these new devices boast larger screens than their affordable predecessors, as well as an impressive processor for the price.

As far as cameras are concerned, the Moto G Power keeps up the trends, offering a three camera layout with an ultra-wide lens, a Marco lens that can zoom up to five times, and the 16 MP AI-powered camera with rapid focus for those on-the-go portrait mode shots.

Moto G Stylus

From battery to flattery, the Moto G Stylus is being called an affordable imitation of the Galaxy Note, and the stylus makes it a dead giveaway. It allows you to edit photos, design graphics, and even jot down notes, with “pinpoint precision,” as Motorola mentions multiple times throughout their press release. Other specs include:

  • Battery: 4000 mAh
  • Battery life: 2 days
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 665
  • Operating system: Android 10
  • Storage: 128 GB
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Display: 6.4-inch Max Vision display
  • Price: $300
  • Available: Spring 2020

The higher price tag could come from the stylus, but it could also come from the camera system, which adds some serious power compared to the Moto G Power. The three camera system includes the same ultra-wide lens, and a Macro vision lens for five times the zoom. However, the main camera is a 48 MP beast with night mode, nearly three times the MP found in the Moto G Power.

Additionally, the Moto G Stylus features the same large display and impressive processor, so you won't be downgrading at all if you opt for the more expensive device.

Should You Buy the Moto G Power or G Stylus?

If you're looking for a phone with an awesome battery or an affordable Galaxy Note alternative, these devices are undeniably a great option for the price.

The Moto G Power features a 3-day battery life, which alone is enough to make a power-chaser's mouth water. Combined with a beautiful screen, solid camera system, and an impressive processor for the budget price, you could do a lot worse than the Moto G Power.

The Moto G Stylus is definitely for a niche market of stylus users, but the price point could be too attractive for some newbies to pass up. At only $300, it's less than a third of the price of the Galaxy Note 10, which could give users the opening they need to try it out.

Simply put, each of these phones offer features found in flagship devices, and the price is unbelievably attractive, so yes, if you're interested, you should absolutely buy the Moto G Power and the Moto G Stylus.
