I've had this phone for a couple of months now. It has everything I need:
- Under very heavy and continuous usage, the phone can last up to 7 hours. But under normal (light to moderate usage) it can last anywhere from 40 to 52 hours without needing any charge (may be even more, as I have never let the battery drain below 13%).
- More than decent performance for everyday tasks (WhatsApp, Web browsing, light gaming - I play chess online, Microsoft Wordament, and Tetris, navigating with GPS, streaming video at 1K resolution and such). By the way, I don't know what's that complaint about not being able to take WhatsApp calls all about. I've never had any issues.
- More than enough RAM. At idle, the phone will be using 1.3 to 1.4 Gb and have about 2.3 to 2.4 Gb free. The rest is video memory. Switching between apps while multitasking, this phone has nothing to envy my wife's and stepdaughter's flagship phones.
- Cameras and screen are OK, I'd say a little better than average.
It's obviously not a power house but it has decent performance. Antutu v8 score with Android 10 is 116,400. The top feature is its battery life, the best that you can get at this price point.
As of today, Moto g8 power lite notifications do not work, see https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/moto-g8-power-lite/Notifications-problem/m-p/5041393?page=1
Can anyone tell me if the dual sim version offers 4g connectivity on both sims? I'm interested to buy this phone but need both sims on 4g
Any idea as to why this phone doesnt work for Whatsapp video calls? Extremely bad experience. The fun is whatsapp video call works fine with my Moto G6 but doesnt work for Moto G8 powerlite which i bought for my mother. Any help??
AI, 19 Jul 2020Hey whether this phone will be updated to Android 10.Got Android 10 update
c1tizen-4, 01 Oct 2020Bless Motorola for the notification led. Love the handset.I'll take the chance to ask if the notification led is standard for the Moto G8 series.
Yeh, 21 Jul 2020Is it better than redmi note 5 proNo. Aside for the battery and screen on time, Redmi note 5 pro performs better than g8 power lite. Of you're a heavy user and battery concerns you most, go for motorola. Redmi note 5 pro can give you just 5/6 hours of sot.
I have the moto g8 and think it is a super wee phone and once charged it asts a couple of day but it tells you % of whats on your phone and how much time is left before you need to charge it again :-)
Can someone please tell me which is the better buy? Is this better than the Redmi 9? I do not have a phone 3 weeks now and need to get one I been thinking about this one and also the Redmi 9 but not sure which i should go with. I know the Redmi has more features but i am just worried about when i am to make videos will the sound synchronize? that is my only draw back.

I love its performance and the extensive space for a very low price. Highly recommended. The only thing I would complain about is the camera: when you are trying to take pictures in dark spaces the image gets very "granulated" and though the size of the picture is 16MP, the picture resolution is very poor. This is not fixable with the installation of a camera app or anything. Also: no double windows available.
Beside that, this is a pretty good phone that won't give you issues like getting stuck or paralized. Pretty good.
Go for it only if you are light usage user of mobile
Camera could have been better
Flash light is not good
Brightness is very low
Sound volume is not high
Cannot support more than 50mbps
Screenshot feature is not in notifications bar ,You need to press slide button to see screenshot option
