After Lenovo overtook Motorola, the brand hasn’t been doing good against the competitors like Xiaomi and Realme. It looks like Moto is back in the game with its new Moto G8 line-up but will it be enough to compete with the likes of other OEMs? Let’s analyse.
What’s New in the Moto G8?
The Moto G8 is a successor of the Moto G7 which means an average consumer would expect significant upgrades, but that’s not the case here. There are a lot of little updates which include the processor which is Snapdragon 665 and a larger 4000mAh battery. The phone comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
The Moto G8 also has three cameras on the back. The primary shooter is 16MP and with an 8MP wide-angle camera and a 2MP macro camera. The primary camera is “fast-focusing,” while the wide-angle camera with 119-degree field of view. The macro camera can get you “5x closer to your subject than a normal lens.” The front camera is 8MP embedded in the punch-hole.
The display is a significant downgrade from the Moto G7. The Moto G8 has a larger 6.4-inch LCD screen (720p), but the resolution is lower than the G7 (1080p) which is a shame to see happening on a phone’s successor.
The Moto G8 is now available in Brazil for $280, and it will be coming to other regions in a month or two. The only thing that comes to our mind is the price to performance ratio, which is terrible here. There are better alternatives from Realme and Xiaomi that you can buy right now. That said, Moto didn’t learn from its previous mistakes, and we hope it does someday.
