A week ago, Motorola announced new phones for the US in 2020. Good timing, because I was about to run out and buy last year’s Moto G7. Oh, by the way, I plan to switch from iPhone back to Android. Call it ludicrous, or call it liberating…wait, it’s just a phone that you can call.
Two phones in particular were revealed: Moto G Stylus and Moto G Power. I’m focusing on the G Power. On paper, this thing is surprising. How can Moto offer so much for so little? For a mere $250, you get: about 3 days worth of battery life on a single charge, a macro camera, an ultra-wide camera, a wide camera, a 6.4” full HD screen, dolby tuned stereo (dual) speakers, a microSD card slot, splash resistance, and near stock Android 10! And of course the Moto G Power has the basics down: 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, Snapdragon 665.
Flagship phones today cost over $1,000! But you can get a truly great phone for just $250! The value here is possibly unmatched. Moto has been making good budget to mid-range phones for years. Initial impressions of the Moto G Power are promising. Once full reviews are in, I’ll probably process several of them to be sure this new phone isn’t just smoke and mirrors before running out to buy one.
The only hard thing now is to wait until the Spring, maybe mid-April, when the phone goes on sale. My iPhone 7’s days are dwindling. It’s great, but I’m ready for an upgrade, and for a switch to Android.
