Motorola Moto G9 Power: Battery life is good, but...
Naturally, the Motorola Moto G9 Power offers a huge battery: It can provide 6,000 mAh of energy. Those familiar with Motorola's mobile phone lineup could have guessed that beforehand; after all, the "Power" name has represented a particularly high battery capacity for many Moto generations.
The smartphone did really well in our WLAN test with 19:25 hours, but it's no longer the only inexpensive mid-range phone with a large battery by now: The Xiaomi Poco M3, the Samsung Galaxy M21, and the realme 7i also have 6,000 mAh on board, to name just a few.
And compared to many rivals, the runtime of the Moto G9 Power is 10% shorter. This isn't a huge difference, but it's noticeable in everyday use. Therefore, those looking for the smartphone with the absolute longest runtimes will be highly disappointed by the Moto phone.
On the other hand, the Moto G9 Power comes with a decent camera, at least when taking pictures in daylight and especially of objects or people, since these deliver pleasing results. A good tracking system, good storage configuration, class-typical performance, and a fairly color-accurate display make the smartphone even more interesting.
As is typical for Moto, the Android version is quite clean, but you still have to make do with Android 10 at the moment. Smartphone manufacturers should slowly start to deliver their devices with Android 11. At least there are fairly up-to-date security patches and very little bloatware.
Overall, we find the Motorola Moto G9 Power to be a very solid mid-range smartphone that is even quite well protected against dust and has received an IP certification for it.
