The moto series has been releasing new products every year since the moto g3 in 2015. This moto g8 and moto g8 power, android 10 in the OS, because it is almost a bare Android, it is easy to understand UI. As a unique feature, it also has operability such as “the camera starts when you twist the neck twice with the terminal” and “screenshot with a long press of three fingers”. The minor differenceis that the moto g8 is “notification display when you lift the terminal”, and the moto g8 power is “notification display when approaching”, but the others are roughly equivalent.

The history of the moto g family. In particular, we increased sales with moto g4 plus, which became the first DSDS terminal in Japan.

Motorola’s unique Moto experience

Both the moto g8 and moto g8 power use snapdragon 665 for the SoC. Features a 6.4-inch Max Vision display. The moto g8 has a display resolution of 1,560 x 720 dots, and the moto g8 power is 2,300 x 1,080 dots full HD.1.

The display sizeis equivalent and the resolution is different. Dolby audio is also supported. The in-camera is punchhole type.

Support for Ntt DoCoMo, KDDI(au), SoftBank and Rakuten Mobile

In the network, it is safe to note that it supports Rakuten Mobile, which launched this service in April. Of course, ntt doco, KDDI(au) and SoftBank companies are also supported. In addition to covering the frequency band of each carrier, setting up a PN and conducting internal evaluations, kddi is conducting interconnectivity testing (IOT). It also supports DSDV dual SIM dual VoLTE with two SIM slots, so you can use data communication sand and audio in your regular carrier with inexpensive MVNO.

One of the differences between moto g8 and moto g8 power is the camera. The moto g8 is a triple camera, the main camera with 16 million pixels of effective pixels is the lens with an F value f 1.7, the ultra-wide-angle camera with an angle of view of 118 is 8 million pixels effective pixels and the lens is F2.2. In addition, the macro camera that approaches the subject is 2 million pixels f/2.2.

At the bottom of the moto g8 camera is laser autofocus. At the bottom of the moto g8 power camera is a telephoto camera.

On the other hand, the moto g8 power is a quad camera with four lenses. In addition to the moto g8 triple camera, a telephoto camera with 8 million pixels and F2.2 with double the angle of view has been added. The in-camera has a high pixel of 16 million pixels and F2.0 compared to 8 million pixels and F2.0 of g8.

Both models are appealing for AI camera, and the ability to shoot in the optimum setting by making the scene recognition, auto smile capture to recognize the smile of the person, smart composition to propose a better composition, spot color to black and white leaving only one color of the specified subject, and a cinema graph that only part of the screen moves in the parapara cartoon style, it has a function that seems to be able to play conveniently.

This is CinemaGraph. I don’t know about the still image, but only the fountain in the background is moving, and the other part is still image.

The moto g8 has a 4,000mAh battery and the moto g8 power has an even bigger 5,000mAh battery. The battery will continue for more than two days.

The top-level moto g8 plus has already been released, but this time, we’ve added two new models. Moto g8 plus is 38,800 yen, moto g8 power is 32,800 yen, moto g8 is 25,800 yen, and now you can choose at a price, the choice has been expanded. The moto g8 plus will be compatible with Rakuten Mobile in early May, as well as upgrades to Android 10.

Motorola’s smartphones are selling more and more in Japan, double the number of sales in 2019. It is highly cost-effective by “well-balanced equipped with the required functions”, and appeals to users that they can use them with peace of mind due to the low failure rate.
