Say hello to the Moto G8 Plus and Moto One Macro

We check out Motorola’s brand-new handsets…

05 Nov 2019

Few phone companies around today have the heritage of Motorola. In 1984, they released the first ever commercially available mobile phone – the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X. While it wasn’t the most mobile of phones – it could give you 30 minutes talk time and take 10 hours to recharge – it was the first step of an exciting journey.

Thirty-five years later, things have changed radically, and mobile phones have evolved into powerful personal computers. But Moto’s two newest models show that they’re more than keeping up with the times.

Check out what happened when we go our hands on the new two Motos…


Moto G8 Plus


Moto G8 Plus cameras

Boasting a big 48MP Triple camera, the Moto G8 Plus grabs sharp, bright pics – no expert photography knowledge necessary. Its clever Quad Pixel tech means that it can achieve 4x light sensitivity – giving you great conditions in low light conditions.

And this tech also applies to its 25MP front camera – so you can get great selfies in low light – great for when you’re trying to catch your whole table of friends when you’re out for dinner.

Or how about filming the event? You’ll also get more of what’s in front of you thanks to its ultra-wide 117-degree lens.


Moto G8 Plus battery life

The G8 Plus will give you 36 hours of battery on one charge thanks to its big 4000 mAh battery. Plus, when you do get low on juice, its TurboPower charging will get back you back in the game in a jiffy.


Moto G8 processor

To keep everything super smooth, you’ll be able to rely on its Qualcomm Snapdragon 655 ocatacore processor and a decent serving of 4GB of RAM.


Moto G8 Plus display

The Moto G8 Plus screen serves up a generous 6.3” Max Vision FHD+ HD+ edge-to-edge display. If that’s a bit too techie for you to wrap your head around, it basically means that it’s got a big, beautiful screen perfect for binge Netflix sessions and Youtube content alike.


Moto G8 Plus sound

And how can you enjoy your favourite show without great sound? Its powerful stereo speakers, tuned by Dolby, serve up crystal clear clarity.
