Motorola G8 Plus review
However, a competition recently he’s gotten pretty intense, with real me and xiaomi, releasing phones practically every month, so as Motorola’s latest g8 plus wertha by i’m angie for gsm marina – and this is a moto g8 review. Our moto g 8 has a deep cosmic blue color. That looks quite nice when the light hits it it’s made of plastic on the back and has some level of splash resistance. Despite having elegant looks, it feels quite chunky and it’s far from a one handed device – it’s, not very heavy, but it does feel a bit unwieldy at least there’s a fast fingerprint reader in a comfortable position on the back. So getting into your phone is no issue. The bezels on the front aren’t that small and remind me of ones that you’ll find on the iPhone 11. The notch is smaller, but it’s. Far from the smallest we’ve seen the Moto G 8 plus has a six point. Three inch LCD display. It has a good brightness of 581 nits in auto mode and 477 nits and manual mode LCDs are usually brighter, but at least the contrast was quite good. The screen is dim around the edges. When displaying whites and in general color accuracy wasn’t great. There was a strong shift to blue, no matter what clear mode we chose. As far as the audio is concerned, motorola really did a great job. There is a stereo speaker setup with excellent loudness. There wasn’t nearly enough bass even for a phone, but Menten highs were alright.
The headphone jack performed really well too. Loudness was among the highest we’ve tested in stereo. Separation was great. The g8 Plus also supports the apt X codec if you’re a fan of Bluetooth headphones. The chipset is good for day to day use, but it’s, not great for heavy duty gaming and the phone only has four gigs of RAM, so he gets no boost there either. Still, the Moto G, a plus a stock Android 9.0, with a few moto gestures like chop for the flashlight and twist for the camera. This means you’re getting Android as Google, intended with the added mode of navigation. Hopefully, once the update for Android 10 comes out, the phone will use gesture based navigation, so that it’s bulk is less obtrusive when you’re using it with one hand. For now, you can use the one button navigation which isn’t quite as good, but as much more comfy than the classic buttons or Android 9s pill navigation. Thanks to its 4000 milliamp hour battery, the g8 plus got 87 hours of endurance. This is good for its class and its levels better than the g7 Plus, which had a measly 59 hours. The g8 plus also supports 50 watt fast charging and, while it doesn’t sound that bad and only manages to get 36 of the battery in half an hour, the Moto G 8 plus has a 48 megapixel quad pixel main sensor, a 5 megapixel depth sensor and a 16 megapixel ultra wide video camera yeahit’s video in particular, because you can’t actually use it for stills, just like on the moto 1 action here.
The ultra wide is meant for shooting in portrait mode. This is presumably to provide a better grip in action. Heavy scenes almost like a GoPro, the main camera uses pixel binning to produce 12 megapixel images, there’s, not even an option to shoot in 48 megapixels on the g8 plus, although considering how that usually works and other phones that use the same system. That’S, not much of a loss in daylight photos have narrow, dynamic range and quite a bit of noise, but they capture plenty of detail in low light. This limited dynamic range seems to be even more. Limiting so highlights were very blown out and shadows were noisy. Despite being well exposed, so if you’re shooting in darker environments, you should just use a night mode, because you get significantly better highlight areas. Photos are generally softer, but the difference in exposure seems to be worth it portraits, had excellent subject: separation and natural background blur they don’t get HDR, however, so the phone struggled in harsh light for key video footage was nothing more than okay. More contrast see, details were well defined, but the grass was rendered in a watercolor fashion. The dynamic range is average and colors are good, but slightly on the cool side, full HD video was among the top end for the class. As far as sharpness and detail were concerned, but dynamic range and colors are pretty much the same. The ultra wide camera has warmer color reproduction than the main cam, but dynamic range isn’t any better.
It does have better stabilization than the main camera and we didn’t observe any micro jitters here, it’s decently, detailed for its class, but it doesn’t have us going wow. The moto G 8 plus has a twenty five megapixel selfie cam that takes six megapixel photos. Images look decent and have nice colors when there’s a lot of light details and grace in the dynamic range is pretty narrow. Despite the HDR selfie, portraits have good subject separation, but here the dynamic range is even more narrow, so the moto J plus is a good phone, but it’s, not amazing, in fact, it’s a little bit difficult to recommend despite the stock Android and a low price tag. I mean, if you’re crazy, about the audio quality and that stock Android then yeah, you should get it. But if you want a better screen, expandable storage and better stills from the camera, then I would go with the redmi note 8 t thanks for watching.
