Recently, Moto launched the successor of its critically acclaimed G7 series, Moto G8. Moto G7 was a powerful device, and the value for money aspects impressed almost everyone in the industry. But, the same is not the case with the recently launched Moto G8.
Specifications of Moto G8
The display of the recently announced Moto G8 is an absolute degrade from its predecessor, Moto G7. The phone has a 6.4 inches display having 720p resolution. Previously, the G7 launched with a significantly better 6.2 inches 1080p display. The selfie shooter in the front has the same 8mp sensor. But, the only noticeable difference is the inclusion of a punch hole.
However, the back triple camera setup is a welcome upgrade, having the primary shooter of 16mp. The phone also includes an ultra-wide-angle camera of 8mp. Besides, it also has a 2mp macro lens, which is working perfectly fine. The back camera can record 4K videos in 30fps.
Though the phone upgrades its processor, it still underwhelming. Moto G8 uses Snapdragon 665 to power the device. This is the same chipset that Moto used on the G8 Plus. The adaptation of Moto G8 to Adreno 600-class is quite impressive. The GPU performance is around 200% faster than the 500-class GPU, which was used in Moto G7.
The phone has 4GB of RAM for multitasking, and 64GB of ROM for storage. Users will get up to 51GB of available storage in this device. The device includes a massive 4,000 mAh battery, but the charging speed is a complete disappointment. The phone only supports a charging speed up to 10W. The phone supports USB TYPE C, and it has a 3.5 mm jack for audio output.
The smartphone is priced at 180 Pound in the UK.
