Moto G Power(s) vs. Moto G8 Power

2021-11-19, 7:01 AM

Hi, 

I am very confused as to the names of the various Moto models, and it may be because of different designations in different markets.

 

Is the Moto G Power (2020) in the United States the same thing as the Moto G8 Power?


It is especially confusing on the Motorola website, where there are no years or numbers

There is this Moto G Power for $179.99

...but also THIS Moto G Power for $219.99

Are they the equivalent to this Moto G8 Power found here on Amazon?

Thank you, and please send word up the ladder that these product names are extremely confusing.

For the two phones on the Motorola website, the photo (which shows the camera) seems to be the tip-off.  The $179.99 phone appears to be the current "Moto G Power 2021". That price is the same as now offered by several retailers (watch for "Black Friday" sales), and is what I paid recently to pick one up at Best Buy.  FWIW, there is a Moto G Power 2022 in the works (ETA Feb 2022, details on GSMarena.com), which may also explain the price reduction on the 2021 model.

 

The $219.99 phone appears to be the older "Moto G Power 2020" model, with it's different camera (16 MP vs 48MP in the 2021 model) but slightly better display. The 2020 does have the Android 11 update, where the 2021 model is still on Android 10 (with an estimated availability of Android 11 as "someday").

 

Beware of the Moto G8 Power on Amazon. It is GSM only (i.e., not compatible with Verizon) and is equipped with different bands than the Moto G Power phones and may not be as well suited for use in the US (see GSMarena.com for details). Warranty in the US may also be an issue. Otherwise it is similar in most respects to the Moto G Power 2020.

Thank you very much. I will probably buy the 2020 from the Motorola website.

Hi, 

 

Welcome to Motorola Forums and I apologize for the product naming confusion. However, I will pass feedback regarding this to the relevant team to look at it. 

 

Thanks
Sunitha
