Priced at Rs. 8,999, the Moto G8 Power Lite offers good amounts of RAM and storage, which not many others do. I really like the simple design, large display, good battery life and no-nonsense take on Android, even though it's still an older version. The main camera is functional if you give it good...

Motorola has done a couple of things right, including the display quality, battery life, a clean Android experience and a nice camera setup (main camera). Additionally, it looks great. There are some drawbacks too, especially when you consider the older Helio P35 chip, an outdated Android version, a...

Shocker, but I don’t really like the G8PL. The power is only a bit more than other phones, nothing exceptional. This, is better but only mildly better than other new phones. Performance though is the problem. It’s not terrible but frankly, the buyers in this price range, should have bought a phone w...

Priced at Rs. 8,999, the Moto G8 Power Lite offers good amounts of RAM and storage, which not many others do. I really like the simple design, large display, good battery life and no-nonsense take on Android, even though it's still an older version. The main camera is functional if you give it good light, but otherwise, the cameras are not great. The processor also feels a little too weak for gaming or doing anything intensive.

Motorola has done a couple of things right, including the display quality, battery life, a clean Android experience and a nice camera setup (main camera). Additionally, it looks great. There are some drawbacks too, especially when you consider the older Helio P35 chip, an outdated Android version, an average front camera and micro USB port.

Shocker, but I don’t really like the G8PL. The power is only a bit more than other phones, nothing exceptional. This, is better but only mildly better than other new phones. Performance though is the problem. It’s not terrible but frankly, the buyers in this price range, should have bought a phone with this CPU 2 years ago and be just about to retire it. Right now the phone is usable, although it randomly judders, but where will it be in two years?

The Motorola G8 Power Lite is a phone designed to offer exceptional battery life. And it delivers, too, returning well over two days worth of battery life in typical usage. However, it achieves this remarkable figure at the expense of...almost everything else. The specs are below-par, and the overall experience leaves a fair bit to be desired. So, prospective G8 Power Lite buyers must ask themselves – how much does battery life really matter?

A fairly basic phone, that’s likely to meet your expectations for the price

from TrustedReviews

The Motorola G8 Power Lite retains a massive battery, but jettisons specs in other key areas, with the screen, camera, and display included. It's not a bad phone, but it doesn't hit that same value-for-money spot as its slightly pricier sibling.
