Motorola launched the Moto G8 Power Lite, its most recent spending Android cell phone, a month back in India. It contends straightforwardly with famous contributions, for example, Realme’s Narzo 10A (Review) and the Redmi 8 (Review). The feature highlights of the new G8 Power Lite incorporate a major battery and show, and the cleaned up Android experience that we’ve generally expected from Moto gadgets.
Valued at Rs. 8,999 in India, we should check whether the Moto G8 Power Lite has enough execution and highlights to make it worth suggesting.
Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite plan: Keeping it straightforward
The huge size of the Moto G8 Power Lite is quickly obvious, when you remove it from the case. It’s very stout, with a thickness of 9.2mm, and furthermore somewhat substantial at about 200g. The whole body is worked from plastic, however on account of the matte completion, it looks great and doesn’t pull in fingerprints too without any problem. Likewise, the side casing and back are each of the one piece, so there are no unattractive edges or knocks. The unit i’m utilizing is the Royal Blue shading, which I think looks decent, and there’s likewise an Artic Blue shade with a comparative inclination finish.
In a universe of vanishing earphone jacks, it’s ideal to see that the Moto G8 Power Lite despite everything has one. There’s a Micro-USB port at the base, and the power just as volume catches are on the right. The plate on the left can convey two Nano-SIMs and a microSD card. The speaker has been moved to the rear of the telephone, with a pattern towards the base left corner. We additionally have three cameras and the unique mark sensor implanted in the Motorola logo on the upper back. By and large, the Moto G8 Power Lite has a spotless and straightforward structure, which I like.
The Moto G8 Power Lite has a basic, rich plan
Motorola claims that the Moto G8 Power Lite has a water-repellent covering, which lets it endure light sprinkles of water and even introduction to light rain. I put this under a magnifying glass, and the telephone appeared to be fine after a couple of endeavors, with the goal that’s acceptable to know.
The presentation is a major 6.5-inch IPS TFT LCD board with a HD+ goal of 720×1600 pixels. The sides of the showcase are unmistakably adjusted and the bezels are very thick. Normally, I wouldn’t be excessively content with this, however given the telephone’s value, I’ll let it slide. This low goal isn’t perfect for such a huge board, because of which text and symbols don’t look sharp. I saw the brilliance of the presentation as on the lower side as well, and I commonly needed to keep it set to the 70-80 percent level even inside. Content is noticeable under brilliant light, yet the intelligent glass and smears can make this telephone precarious to utilize.
The unique mark sensor functions admirably and rushes to open the telephone when required. Be that as it may, there’s no choice to open it with your face.
Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite execution: Could be better
I’ve been utilizing the Moto G8 Power Lite for the majority of the week, and general execution has been not too bad. The telephone is still on Android 9 Pie, yet Motorola says an Android 10 update will be coming sooner rather than later. The perfect format of stock Android is continually reviving to utilize, however it can feel excessively barebones now and again in case you’re utilized to Samsung’s One UI, OnePlus’s OxygenOS, or some other custom skin. Just Google’s set-up of applications is preinstalled, and there isn’t much else. Motorola incorporates its trademark signals, which you can control through the Settings application. You can twofold bend the telephone to open the camera, application or shake it twice to turn on the electric lamp.
The Moto G8 Power Lite utilizations the MediaTek Helio P35 SoC and is accessible in just a single setup, which has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of capacity. It’s not the most powerful processor, however at this value it will do. Taking a gander at benchmarks, the Helio P35 appears to perform marginally better than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439, as observed in the Redmi 8, yet is as yet more fragile than the later Helio G70 processor in the Realme C3 and Narzo 10A. Be that as it may, I didn’t see a very remarkable negative contact with everyday utilization.
Most social applications and straightforward games run fine. Titles like Sky Force Reloaded look great and run well, yet in case you will play all the more burdening games, for example, PUBG Mobile, at that point it’s not the best understanding. The single speaker gets boisterous, and there’s even programming upgrade to support the volume. Be that as it may, clearness isn’t incredible and mutilation is perceptible at higher volume levels, regardless of whether it was playing a game or tuning in to music.
I was astounded to see Google’s Widevine L1 affirmation on the Moto G8 Power Lite. This guarantees spilling applications can play video at the telephone’s local goal.
