Is there a magnetometer on Moto G8 Power UK versions?

2020-04-26, 8:26 AM

Hello, 

 

Can you please confirm whether the Moto G8 Power released in the UK has a magnetometer? I use mapping apps such as Viewranger and the inbuilt compass in my current iphone for mountain walking so need assurance that these apps will work accurately on the phone. 

 

Many thanks

Hi Kez_Mil,

 

Thanks for posting. Yes, the Moto G8 Power does have a magnetometer sensor which can be used as a compass.

Hi Will Yum,

 

There is no hardware test for the Magnetometer in the Moto Help/Device Help. Are you having problems with using a compass on the phone?
