Motorola Moto G9 Power smartphone review: Motorola phone with enduring battery

Battery power reloaded. Even more battery for less money; that is the concept of Motorola's Moto G9 Power. Compared with the predecessor, it has been improved in some areas, but corners have been cut in others too. We'll see if it's enough for it to be a convincing mid-range phone this year as well.
Florian Schmitt, 👁 Florian Schmitt (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...
Motorola Moto G9 Power

Motorola's G series is all about solid mid-range smartphones. Within the series, the Power models are traditionally the phones that offer a lot of battery capacity, making them suitable for buyers who are looking for long runtimes. The Moto G9 Power is a bit cheaper than its predecessor, but it also has to make do with a slightly lower performance in return. On the other hand, the manufacturer actually increased the charging performance and the storage capacity a bit.

Therefore, it will be exciting to see how Motorola's battery giant will perform this year, especially since numerous other manufacturers also offer inexpensive phones with a large battery now.

Case – Purple also available

The Motorola Moto G9 Power isn't a light smartphone. At 221 grams, it's the heaviest device in our comparison, but it's also the one with the largest display size. It fits comfortably in the hand and is very ergonomic thanks to the rounded corners at the back. However, you can clearly feel the material transition between the screen and the case on the front, which lowers the perceived quality a bit.

With metallic gray and glossy violet, a more classic and a fairly unusual color variant are available. The textured back feels quite high-quality; the device is also relatively stable and doesn't yield too much under pressure.

The Moto G9 Power is protected against dust and water according to the IP52 rating. This translates into quite good protection against dust and external particles, but the protection against liquids is limited to splashes, so it's not possible to use the device under water.

Connectivity – Moto G9 Power with plenty of storage

128 GB of mass storage is good, even though only the quite slow eMMC flash type is available, while the Poco M3 comes with UFS 2.2 storage, for example. The smartphone can accommodate two SIM cards or one SIM and a microSD card for memory expansion.

NFC isn't necessarily a given in this price category, but it's included in the Moto G9 Power.

Software – Android 10 on board

Android 10 is not quite the latest version of Google's operating system anymore, but most smartphones are still shipped with it, including the Moto G9 Power. The security patches are from January 2021 and are, therefore, still fairly up to date at the time of this test.

The Android version installed by Motorola is quite clean, and all manufacturer-specific features are centralized in the Moto app. The only third-party application that is preinstalled is Facebook.

Communication and GPS – Faster WLAN than with the Moto G8 Power

The smartphone offers LTE with download rates of up to 400 Mb/s, and Wi-Fi 5 speed is available for WLAN access. However, the Moto G9 Power is a bit slower than many comparison devices in the test with the Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router. At least it's considerably faster compared with the predecessor.

In terms of positioning, the smartphone can resort to GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo. The corresponding satellites are found quickly, and signal is immediately available when the device is outdoors.

In our practical test, we used a Garmin Edge 520 as a comparison device and went on a bike ride. The Moto G9 Power doesn't always detect our position accurately, but it does a good enough job for everyday use in the car or while hiking.

Telephone and call quality – Very clearly understandable

The phone app is Google's standard app and will be familiar enough to Android users.

Call quality is decent via the earpiece, but it's accompanied by a noticeable buzzing at maximum volume. The microphone picks up our voice well, and the person on the other end confirms a clear intelligibility. In hands-free mode and using the internal speaker, the other person sounds even clearer, but our voice is only transmitted well when we don't speak too quietly.

Cameras – 64 MP main camera in the Moto G9 Power

Front-facing camera sample
Front-facing camera sample

The main camera offers 64 million pixels, but normally, only 16-megapixel pictures are taken since every four pixels are combined into one pixel to increase the light yield. You can only use the camera's full resolution in a special mode.

Photos taken with the main camera offer a good level of detail when capturing objects and also good color reproduction. However, the autofocus struggles a bit when taking pictures of the surroundings, and details look slightly washed out. The situation is similar in low light and with high contrasts: Here, the image is illuminated well in some areas, but it looks quite blurry.

In total, there are three lenses on the back of the Moto G9 Power. The other two only have a poor resolution of 2 megapixels and offer the option of macro shots in a special mode. The second additional lens is a supplementary camera for depth-of-field effects that can't be used to take photos on its own.

Videos can be recorded in 1080p at 60 fps. There are definitely smartphones in this price range that already allow users to shoot 4K videos.

The front-facing camera takes quite sharp selfies, but fine structures like hair can look jagged.

The main camera of the Moto G9 Power also has to prove itself in the lab. The illumination is minimal at a brightness of 1 lux, and hardly anything can be recognized in the pictures. With good lighting, the test chart looks quite sharp in all areas, and it also has good contrast. However, colored areas look quite blotchy.

Accessories and warranty – Moto Care protects against accidents

Besides the quick charger and the USB cable, the package also contains a SIM tool and various documents. The Moto G9 Power rests in a silicon bumper case that is also convenient for everyday use.

Motorola offers a 24-month warranty on its smartphone. With Moto Care, you can purchase a warranty extension and accident protection; this is possible for up to 30 days after purchase.

Input devices and handling – Moderately fast fingerprint scanner

You will look in vain for a fast 90 Hz display or even faster refresh rates. There are several devices in this price range that have a fast display, such as the OnePlus Nord N100 or the realme 7. This means that the Moto G9 Power doesn't feel quite as responsive during use compared with devices that have a faster display. Nevertheless, it's possible to control the device accurately via the touchscreen.

A fingerprint scanner is found on the back. It reacts very reliably to inputs, but it's not the fastest at unlocking the device. Unlocking via facial recognition is also possible, but it's not quite as secure as with iPhones, for example, due to the use of a pure software solution.

The hardware buttons on the right side of the case can be used well. The Moto G9 Power has a button on the left side of the case that has a peculiar shape, but it can be found easily and is used to launch Google Assistant.

The IPS display of the Moto G9 Power has a resolution of 1640x720 pixels. We are used to finding higher resolutions in comparable devices; the Samsung Galaxy M21 even has an AMOLED display. The Motorola phone's brightness leaves a lot to be desired as well: We measure a maximum of 414 cd/m² at the center of the screen, and brightness still drops considerably around the edges.

At least the black level is acceptable, so that the contrast ratio also reaches a decent value of 1,294:1. This means that colors look more vivid, and black areas really look quite dark.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 500 Hz ≤ 20 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 500 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 20 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 500 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21047 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

We notice PWM flickering at brightness levels below 20%; the frequency is quite high at 500 Hz and shouldn't cause any problems for the vast majority of users.

In our tests with the spectrophotometer and the CalMAN software, we don't observe a blue tint in grayscales, and color reproduction in Natural mode is at a pretty good level. However, it lacks color-space coverage for professional image-editing.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15 ms rise
↘ 13 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 61 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
44 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 23 ms rise
↘ 21 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 64 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.6 ms).

The screen can be viewed well from all angles, and the contrasts and colors remain stable. The Moto G9 Power has some difficulties outdoors even on cloudy days: Although the screen's content can still be recognized, contrast levels are already quite low. On very bright days, outdoor legibility might no longer be possible.

Performance – Sufficient power

Compared with the predecessor, the Moto G8 Power, some minor performance compromises have to be made: The G9 Power uses a Snapdragon 662 from Qualcomm, which has slightly slower clock rates than the Snapdragon 665 in the predecessor. A rather odd move, but it's probably due to the lower price.

Nevertheless, the Motorola smartphone's performance is on par with the class level in our test, and it's even slightly ahead of the other comparison devices in some benchmarks. In terms of graphics, the smartphone is a bit slower than some smartphones with a MediaTek SoC, but overall, it's still at the typical class level.

The Moto G9 Power's Internet browsing speed is inconsistent: Sometimes it's quite fast in one benchmark, and sometimes it's slower than the comparison devices.

In everyday use, you have to wait for content to load when scrolling on websites, and images are also displayed with some delay.

Motorola has cut corners when it comes to storage, and only eMMC flash is installed. This is noticeable in the transfer rates.

We see the usual transfer rates with our reference SD card, the Toshiba Exceria Pro M501, but these are at least considerably faster than in the predecessor.

Games – Gaming is possible, but...

You can use the Moto G9 Power for gaming if you don't play games that are too demanding and if your expectations aren't too high. While League of Legends: Wild Rift runs reasonably stable at 60 fps even at high details, you can only play PUBG Mobile at a somewhat stable 30 fps at very low details. These conditions are not ideal for a fast multiplayer shooter. We test frame rates with GameBench.

In terms of usability, the review sample does quite well: The touchscreen and the position sensor work reliably as control units.

Emissions – Moto G9 Power without throttling

Temperature

GFXBench battery test
GFXBench battery test

The maximum temperature increase under prolonged load is 43.5 °C (~110 °F) at the top, which is clearly noticeable. However, this only becomes problematic in very hot environments; heat development isn't critical in normal ambient temperatures.

Both the GFXBench battery test and the 3DMark Wild Life stress test result in quite stable frame rates, so you don't have to worry about performance throttling after prolonged load.

Speaker

Pink Noise speaker test
Pink Noise speaker test

The small mono speaker at the bottom edge delivers a sound that is quite heavy on treble, and high frequencies are also uncomfortably overemphasized at maximum volume. Low mids and basses are hardly present in the sound pattern. At least the speaker is loud enough for a medium-sized room, but it's not really enjoyable to listen to.

Support of the fairly modern Bluetooth 5.0 standard with aptX HD and a 3.5 mm jack enable the output of audio signals to external speakers or headphones. This works quickly and smoothly with a clear sound.

Battery life – Good endurance

Energy consumption

Energy management does a decent job, but the Moto G9 Power needs more energy than the comparison devices in some scenarios. This might also be due to the larger display.

Battery life

In our WLAN test, the Moto G9 Power falls behind most comparison devices despite its huge 6,000 mAh battery. After all, they also come equipped with equally large batteries nowadays and have advantages due to the slightly lower energy consumption.

Nevertheless, the Moto G9 Power does very well with 19:25 hours, and it can partly outperform other devices under load or in idle usage; in addition, the runtime has increased noticeably compared with the predecessor.

Thanks to the 20-watt fast-charging technology, it takes about 1:30 hours for the device to be fully recharged.

Verdict – A solid mid-range smartphone

In review: Motorola Moto G9 Power.
In review: Motorola Moto G9 Power.

The Moto G9 Power is a successful upgrade from the predecessor and has faster Wi-Fi, more storage, and above all, better battery life. It's annoying that performance has been slightly reduced, but this is tolerable in view of the lower price.

The tracking system does its job well, and the camera takes nice pictures of objects but lacks sharpness in pictures of surroundings. The display could be brighter and have a higher resolution, but at least it reproduces colors quite well.

The Motorola Moto G9 Power has long battery life and lacks any major weaknesses, but it doesn't manage to properly stand out either.

The competition surrounding the Moto G9 Power is strong, and many smartphones in this price range now offer a 6,000 mAh battery as well. The Moto G9 Power doesn't really manage to stand out, and there are also several smartphones with an even longer battery life.

However, the Moto G9 Power is a solid choice for users looking for a large phone that also offers a fairly pure Android version and that doesn't have any major weaknesses.

Price and availability

At the time of writing, you can find the Motorola Moto G9 Power on Amazon for $189.99 in purple; a gray version bundled with a 64 GB microSD card is also available for $249.98.

I initially wrote about gaming laptops when I joined Notebookcheck in 2009. I was then involved with the setup of the comparison portal Notebookinfo and worked with social media concepts for large companies like BMW and Adidas, while also returning to work for Notebookcheck in 2012. Nowadays, I focus on smartphones, tablets, and future technologies. Since 2018 I have been Managing Editor for mobile device reviews, working alongside my colleague Daniel Schmidt.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
