The Motorola Moto G9 Plus has an identification problem
The Motorola Moto G9 Plus is launched in Germany at a reasonable purchase price of around 270 Euros (around $289 in the US). For this price, buyers of the Moto G9 Plus receive a 6.8 inch 60 Hz LC display with FHD+ resolution and a Snapdragon 730G with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB internal memory.
However, the Moto G9 Plus lacks features that set it apart from the mid-range competition. The built-in battery has a fairly large capacity of 5,000mAh which supports quick charging. Although nowadays this is not a unique selling point anymore. With the "TurboPower" charging technology, the battery is fully charged in about 60 minutes thanks to the 30-Watt quick charge function, which is a plus point at this price range.
Whether this is sufficient to prevail against other cheap mid-range mobile phones with high refresh rates (e.g. Poco X3 NFC) or with OLED panels (e.g. Samsung Galaxy M51) is at least doubtful. Because the G9 Plus has clear deficits, especially when it comes to the display. The maximum brightness we measured for a pure white screen background is only 390 nits, while the APL50 brightness, which is probably more relevant in everyday life, is only 361 nits. In addition, the 60 Hz panel of the Moto G9 Plus has non-uniform brightness levels, especially at the lower edge of the display, and shows a slight halo formation with dark display contents.
