Motorola’s next budget phone is expected to offer incredible endurance along with a versatile camera for a reasonable price. Here’s what we know so far.
The headline spec of the Moto G8 Power is its 5000mAh battery capacity, a figure that even leaves eclipses esteemed flagship phablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus or the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. The brand claims that this can last for “three days of powerful performance”, 188 hours of music streaming and 21 hours of watching video content before needing to be plugged in.
Last year’s Motorola G7 Power also matched this battery capacity, and in our review we praised its excellent battery performance which held up very well even through draining tasks such as streaming and playing mobile games.

The battery is not the only tempting specification. It’s also got a quadruple rear camera system, comprised of a 16-megapixel main sensor, an ultrawide lens, a telephoto sensor, and a 5x dedicated macro camera. The display measures 6.4-inches, and the device runs on the Snapdragon 665 processor, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. You can buy it from February 20 at a starting price of £219, available at Amazon, John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse, and Argos.

Motorola has an impressive array of mid-range smartphones (disregarding its recent foray into the premium foldables market with its Motorola Razr), and we have included both the Moto G7 Plus and the Moto G7 Power in our list of the best budget phones that you can buy right now.

The latest Motorola handset that we’ve put through review was the Motorola One Hyper. We awarded the device 4 stars out of 5, praising it for its nice screen, enduring battery life, clean software and good camera – however, the middling processor and poor ultrawide camera could stand to be improved.
