Moto G Stylus and Moto G Power

Motorola might not be doing that well in India anymore, but the company seems to have hit a niche in the more advanced markets like the U.S., Europe, and Canada. Motorola, for the past few quarters, appears to be concentrating on the budget segment in those markets with a fair amount of success. The only aberration to this was the announcement and subsequent launch of the Motorola razr, which is – without an iota of doubt – a premium product with its $1500 price tag. Continuing with its budget launches, the Lenovo-owned company recently announced two budget smartphones – the Moto G Stylus and the Moto G Power (earlier known as the Moto G8 Power) for the U.S. market.

While both these handsets look and have almost the same internals, there are quite a few differences as well. Let us take a closer look at their respective specifications

Moto G Stylus: Specifications, Features

Moto G Stylus

As amply evident from its naming scheme, the Moto G Stylus’ major talking point is the fact that it comes with Galaxy Note-esque stylus as a standard accessory. The phone features a large 6.4-inch FHD+ IPS LCD display with a punch-hole at the top left corner to house the 16MP front-facing camera. The rear camera setup includes a 48MP primary sensor with an f/1.7 lens, a secondary 2MP, f/2.2 macro camera, and a 16MP f/2.2 action camera with 117-degree FOV. The Moto G Stylus is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC and gets a 4,000 mAh battery and runs Android 10. The phone gets USB-C support but also comes with a dedicated headphone jack.

Moto G Power: Specifications, Features

 

The Moto G Power was earlier known as the Moto G8 Power. This phone is also powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC – but comes with half the onboard storage space as compared to the Moto G Stylus (64GB instead of 128GB). The phone gets 4GB of RAM. The display on the Moto G Power is also identical to the Moto G Stylus and measures 6.4-inches with FHD+ resolution. The camera setup on the phone includes a triple camera setup at the rear consisting of a 16MP f/1.7 primary camera, a 2MP f/2/2 macro camera, and an 8MP f/2.2, 118-degree ultrawide angle camera. The phone also boasts of a larger 5,000 mAh battery and runs Android 10. Like the Moto G Stylus, this phone also gets USB-C connectivity and a dedicated headphone jack.

Moto G Stylus, Moto G Power: Pricing

Both these handsets will be soon made available only in the U.S. and Canadian markets. Unlocked versions of the phone can be purchased from leading retailers, including Best Buy, B&H Photo, Walmart, and Amazon, with both the handsets soon officially available via Verizon, U.S. Cellular, Consumer Cellular, Republic Wireless, and Xfinity Mobile. The Moto G Power is slightly more affordable of the two and has been priced at $249.99, while the Moto G Stylus will set you back by $299.99. No word as yet of an India launch.
