Reviews for the Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite
The Moto G8 Power Lite wants to convince by a 6.5 inch measuring display and 5,000 mAh strong battery. The Lite is in the name program and means cutbacks in all ranges. For whom the Smartphone can be nevertheless an alternative, clarifies our test.
Honestly, despite some flaws with the device, I have to say there is a lot to like about the Moto G8 Power Lite, but also a lot to possibly dislike about the device too. Would I consider buying one? Possibly but it is a little hard to say given there is a lot of competition out there for the same price point, such as Vivo, Xiaomi, Nokia and OPPO. Though it might be worth more paying an extra $70 to $150 for the Moto G8 or G8 Plus models.

The Moto G8 Power Lite is cheap and has a long-lasting battery, and if that’s all you’re looking for from your phone, it’s likely a device you’ll be happy with. In some ways Motorola has tried too hard to hide the phone’s ‘budget’ roots, notably with the large screen and three rear cameras, and these attempts fall a little flat, but look past the pretences and this is one of the best cheap phones you can buy.

Priced at Rs. 8,999, the Moto G8 Power Lite offers good amounts of RAM and storage, which not many others do. I really like the simple design, large display, good battery life and no-nonsense take on Android, even though it's still an older version. The main camera is functional if you give it good light, but otherwise, the cameras are not great. The processor also feels a little too weak for gaming or doing anything intensive.

Is the Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite a worthy buy for Rs 8,999? Based on my usage and experience, it surely is. Motorola has done a couple of things right, including the display quality, battery life, a clean Android experience and a nice camera setup (main camera). Additionally, it looks great. There are some drawbacks too, especially when you consider the older Helio P35 chip, an outdated Android version, an average front camera and micro USB port. As a consumer, it completely depends upon you whether the combination of these pros and cons make sense.

Despite their similar names and large-capacity batteries, there are more differences than similarities between these two phones. The more affordable handset doesn't always come off worse -- if you need two SIMs and MicroSD expansion, then look to the £149.99 G8 Power Lite. But the Lite model's screen is disappointing and the processor is underpowered, and it's noticeably larger and more unwieldy. So if your budget stretches the extra £70, we recommend the £219.99 Moto G8 Power.

The Moto G8 Power Lite is a good handset for Rs. 8,999 that can offer a really good battery life and performance. PUBG users can play the game for almost up to 5 hours non-stop. Though I wished the camera quality was a bit better.

The Motorola G8 Power Lite retains a massive battery, but jettisons specs in other key areas, with the screen, camera, and display included. It's not a bad phone, but it doesn't hit that same value-for-money spot as its slightly pricier sibling.

Motorola's market share has been on the up and up here in the US, and its staple G-series of phones was recently enriched with three new budget models - the G8 Power, G8 Power Lite and the G8 itself. Just like the G7 series last year, they differ by battery capacity, among other specs, and come at budget phone prices, carrying big displays with them. Needless to say, the Power models stand for long battery life, as both ship with 5000mAh packs, and we found the new Motos to deliver some record longevity in our benchmark tests indeed. If you are looking for a budget phone with an incredible battery life and a great price, the Moto G8 Power seems to be the way to go.

72.08%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
