Motorola Moto G8 Plus review: a battery boost for the budget king


It's hard to fault at this price

Excellent battery life ; Headphone jack ; Sensible Android tweaks ; Solid day-to-day performance

No wireless charging ; Finicky camera exposure ; No Android 10 at launch ; No IP water resistance rating

Moto G8 Plus Review


Motorola is back with another adequately priced mid-range phone, the Motorola G8 Plus. While it isn't officially available in the US, it costs around 250 euro in Europe. Does it deliver good value for that kind of money? I tested it for a week to find...

Excellent battery life; The price is good; Snappy fingerprint sensor

Limited availability; The Action camera can’t take photos; The LCD display is not good

Motorola Moto G8 Plus review: Lacking polish


The Moto G8 Plus is an interesting option for users looking for a near-stock Android experience on a budget. It brings all-day battery life, an interesting action camera setup, and reliable performance to the mid-range segment. However, devices by...

Clean Android build ; Good usability ; Sturdy build quality ; Unique action camera

Fingerprint and smudge magnet ; Camera quality is sub par ; Performance is only passable

The Motorola Moto G8 is a consistently good mid-range smartphone | AndroidPIT


In this in-depth review, the Moto G8 from Motorola shows its intention of ruling the mid-range smartphone market. It certainly deserves its spot.

The mid-range Moto G8 smartphone positively surprised me. Battery life and its camera performance made an excellent impression, and the performance certainly was on par with the price point. It is also comforting to note that bloatware is minimized, as...

Moto G8 Plus Review: Another affordable winner from Motorola?


The Moto G8 Plus is the latest flagship affordable Android phone from Motorola, but does it do enough to differentiate itself in an already stuffed market?

Good value for money;Ticks all the right boxes for most people;Best speakers you'll find on a mid-range phone

Not a huge update on the G7 Plus;Camera has a few annoying limitations

Motorola Moto G8 Plus review: Is this the affordable phone you're looking for?


Looking for an affordable phone? The Moto G8 Plus offers great spec at a sensible price, including great battery performance and multiple cameras.

Responsive rear fingerprint scanner ; Refined design - including graduated rear ; Battery life goes on and on ; Clean software experience ; Cameras capable enough (albeit fairly basic)

Auto-brightness adjustment still excessive ; Other competition - from Xiaomi ; Redmi - continues to squeeze ; Cameras lack wide-angle / zoom / more advanced capabilities ; The G8 Power makes much more sense to buy

Strong battery life, refined design over its predecessor and ample performance show the G8 Plus has progressed. But while its problems are few and far between, the cheaper G8 Power delivers much the same (minus the 48MP camera) with better battery life...

Motorola Moto G8 Plus review


Our go-to sub-£250 smartphone

An above-average effort in almost every area ; Battery life that goes and goes ; Pure Android and decent budget performance

Not the clear-cut value champ of previous years ; Auto brightness can be a bit keen

As well-equipped and capable as we'd expect from a Moto G, with less confusion now the Plus is your only eighth-generation option - but upstart rivals stop it from being the only budget game in town

Moto G8 Plus review


Moto G8 Plus follows the G7 Plus, which was arrived just eight months earlier – is that too early for an upgrade?

Versatile triple camera system Stereo speakers Impressive battery system

Average performance Cameras need further tuning Can't take wide-angle pictures

The Moto G8 Plus brings more power to the table with a versatile camera system array, stereo speakers, minimal bezels and an efficient battery management system. It's a competent budget device, although it's got a few problems.
