Reviews for the Motorola Moto G9 Plus

79.8% Review of the Motorola Moto G9 Plus Smartphone - battery giant with brightness problems | Notebookcheck
Motorola is launching the Moto G9 Plus, a new mid-range smartphone with a large 5,000 mAh battery and a dedicated Google Assistant button. The 6.8-inch Max Vision display of the affordable Moto phone reveals not only advantages in our review though - especially in terms of brightness.

The Moto G9 Plus is for the most part an amazing value phablet. But with Motorola having released the higher specced, more future proof Moto G 5G Plus mere weeks ago, it sits in an awkward position in the Western market.

We appreciated the large screen and the very good main camera, and the Snapdragon 730G still holds up pretty well. The large battery with fast charging is quite competitive, too. Even though there is no sign of the G7 Plus' premium build and loud stereo speakers, the G9 Plus appears to be positioned quite well feature/price-wise and we're happy to give it our recommendation.

80% Motorola Moto G9 Plus Review
Source: Phone Arena English
Motorola’s mid-range advances in late 2020 began with the humble Moto G9 Play, but it’s the Moto G9 Plus that’s arguably its most intriguing new affordable device. At first glance, it has it all: a large display, a large battery, and a not-too-shabby mid-range chipset, as well as a multitude of versatile cameras. All of that has a pretty decent price tag attached to it: the Moto G9 Plus sells for less than $300 in the currently supported regions. Sounds great, but is everything just as good as it sounds on paper?
