Motorola Moto G9 Play

Motorola Moto G9 Play Review, Pros and Cons – Motorola is returning to the entry-level segment with its Motorola Moto G9 Play on a global scale. This phone is a renamed version of the Motorola G9, which is also launched in India along with the worldwide variant, and they are almost identical. The new G-series device, launched on August 24, is looking prominent and with budget relief at its price, which starts at $ 160 (11,700 INR).

Motorola Moto G9 Play Review

Highlights

  1. It has a 6.5 inch LCD IPS screen along with the normal amount of PPI density.
  2. The Snapdragon 662 Chipset integrated with the system motherboard that held the hands with Adreno 610 graphics support.
  3. A triple camera setup that has a 48 MP lens as the main sensor and adds the 8 MP selfie camera.
  4. The power is boosted by a 5000 mAh battery, which is supported by a fast charging speed of 20W.

Design and Display

The elegant way of representing typical design in a unique format is Motorola’s specialty while offering a compact design even on a budget phone. The color selection is quite fabulous, as the device is available in Forest Green, Sapphire Blue, and Spring Pink versions, which look incredible on their own.

The G9 Play equips the standard 6.5 inches IPS LCD screen with 720p resolution capability. But, there is no gorilla glass protection on the back or even on the front screen. Instead of this, the company introduced the water-repellent coating, which provides some protection against splashing water. It is good to have something from the protection department in this range because this type of thing generally did not appear in the low-cost segment. check here Moto E and Moto E6s (2020) review, Pros, and Cons

Memory and Internal

Regular performance is evident on the G9 Play, as it features the Snapdragon 662 chipset on the board and comes with 4 GB of RAM, which follows the lead of 64 GB internal storage. In addition to the hardware, the basic layer of the classic Android 10 interface is installed on the phone. India’s G9 variant is not much different from its twin brother G9 Play. It has the same power as the software configured on the phone.

Camera

Typically, you have seen a square or strip-like camera plate at different angles with varying positioning. But the camera’s central position set by the company looks wonderful at first, and on a closer look, the slight bump will appear. On the camera side, a triple camera configuration was seen, which induced 48 MP as the main snapper, while, on the other hand, a pair of two 2 MP depth and macro expand the camera’s limits and edges. Excluding the fact that it offers an 8MP selfie camera with dot notch, an excellent triple camera integrated into the Motorola G9 Play.

Battery and others

Manufacturers place a 5000 mAh battery in the phone that comes with 20 W fast charging support, which can take less than two hours to fully charge the battery. As the latest trend, it uses the Type-C port to fuel the battery. However, there is less chance of reversible loading capacity.

Now, some of you may know how the price of the smartphone decreases the number of sensors and the communication option is also exhausted. But, the good thing is that the G9 and G9 Play have above the average sensors and communications, so rest assured.
