|Resolution||720 x 1640 pixels|
|Rear Camera||64 + 2 + 2 MP|
|Front Camera||16 MP|
|Internal storage capacity||64 GB|
|Battery capacity||6000 mAh|
The Motorola G9 power stands impressive in terms of technical specifications. However, it is best-suited for a specific category of users.
MOTOROLA G9 POWER DESIGN AND DISPLAY
Generally, some companies tend to manufacture slim smartphones. Subsequently, the battery capacity reduces in most cases. Now, the Motorola G9 power boasts a humongous 6000 mAh battery. Hence, the overall weight and thickness of this smartphone is greater than its counterparts.
The design of Moto G9 power is simple and tall. The rear panel has a rounded-square triple camera setup. The famous Moto logo is well-placed in the centre.
On the contrary, the front glass display looks simple. It does not have any physical button. The front selfie camera is in the form of a punch hole. However, it is located at the left side corner. So, this is one notable feature of its front design.
The display is, in one word, gargantuan. It tends to look large vertically. Hence, the Moto G9 power is definitely a phone for people who can use big-sized gadgets. Moreover, it is manageable for regular users to operate.
Importantly, large-screen displays facilitate pleasing video experience. Also, your eyes will thank you in exchange. So, you can certainly flaunt this phone due to a simplistic, trendy and big size.
MOTOROLA G9 POWER PROCESSOR, VARIANT
The Moto G9 power uses a Snapdragon 662 chipset. Thus, for a price of around ₹ 12K, a Snapdragon chipset is, indeed, astounding.
|Processor||Qualcomm Snapdragon 662|
|Clock speed||2 GHz (Primary)|
Surprisingly, this phone comes with a single variant of 4GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage. Nevertheless, you can add an ancillary memory card with the same.
MOTOROLA G9 POWER CAMERAS
Although smartphone cameras do not produce DSLR-like results, modern technology keeps on enhancing their image quality. The primary sensor of 64 MP is sufficient to capture quality photos.
In the case of the Moto G9 power, the camera UI is snappy. Also, it is easy to navigate. The colour quality is natural and regular users will find the rear camera setup quite amusing.
The front camera sensor of 16MP is sufficient to produce pleasant selfies. Nevertheless, the camera performance is a subjective topic. Different users have disparate opinions. Some expect crystal-clear images. So, it’s best to view online real-life images taken by regular users.
Now, we are in the business end of Moto G9 power. The clean user interface resembles Google’s stock Android. As a tech enthusiast and smartphone user, I am heavily inclined to the utility of stock Android. So, Motorola stands firm in this area.
The Motorola G9 power runs on Android 10 at this time. The only bloatware app is Facebook which can be uninstalled. The ‘Motorola My UX’ introduces useful gestures and actions.
Hence, you get what is the utmost necessity from a smartphone. The prominent ‘shake to light the flashlight action’, ‘twist to open camera application’, peek display are some pragmatic gestures. The Google apps provide efficient battery management.
Due to a clean UI, the processor performance feels smoother. Hence, Android 10 with no bloatware is definitely a major highlight of Moto G9 power.
MOTO G9 POWER BATTERY AND CHARGER
As you know by now, the Moto G9 power boasts a massive 6000 mAh battery. Still, it is worthy to mention that it comes equipped with a 20W Turbocharger.
This specification is enough for regular users to stop worrying about power banks. Also, the 20W charger smartly charges the phone. Turbocharging, like fast charging, is a convenient feature for modern users.
Hence, we can say that Motorola has ticked the right boxes in the battery department with this smartphone. I reckon you know the capability of a 6000 mAh battery. In addition to providing enough juice for your phone, it works well with less bloatware draining unnecessary power.
OKAY, I GET THE TECHNICAL DETAILS. WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS?
To sum up, G9 power comes with the following pros and cons:
|Speedy software (UI).||Display has low resolution.|
|Good processor.||The battery isn’t user-replaceable.|
|Powerful battery capacity.||Less features.|
It should be noted that ‘less features’ are prevalent to all stock Android 10 smartphones and are subjective. For instance, in Android 10, screen recorder, rules, themes are some non-existent features. On the other hand, Moto G9 power, packed with Android 10 offers cool features like smart reply, peek display, digital wellbeing, dark mode, etc.
The Motorola G9 power is a good budget-friendly smartphone. It has some useful specs like clean UI, no bloatware, high-capacity battery and decent processor. However, it does not have an ultra-wide camera sensor, high-resolution front camera and slim design.
So, it depends on your priorities. If you are a user who can adapt well to large displays and simple UI, this phone is worthy to consider. On the other hand, you won’t get more colour options, fancy custom user interface skin with this one.
Still, the Moto G9 power stands true to its name i.e. Power. Undoubtedly, the bigger battery, larger screen, Snapdragon chipset in a price tag of less than ₹ 15K will lure some customers. So, what are your thoughts about the latest Motorola smartphone?
