Moto G Power 5G announced with significantly higher price than LTE version

With no big ambitions on the design side, the Moto G Power 5G should appeal to those who want a phone with a big screen, good battery life and 5G connectivity at a low price.

Except the newest Motorola G Power isn’t quite that cheap, and it’s not very well equipped either, with buyers getting for the $300 MSRP only the Dimensity 930 chipset, a MediaTek solution with sub-par performance from Qualcomm’s Snapgragon 778G chipset from two years ago.

Except for the rearranged cameras, Moto G Power 5G buyers get the same textured plastic finish, with only the fingerprint sensor repositioned from the back cover to the side bezel.

Confirming the not-so-encouraging rumors, the 6.5-inch screen comes framed by a thick bezel and unsightly “chin” at the bottom. Fortunately, the refresh rate increases to 120Hz and the HD+ resolution is swapped for FHD+, making a decisive contribution to the improved user experience.

Given that most contemporary smartphone products are very close to or reach the 5000mAh threshold, battery capacity can no longer be considered a selling point. Unfortunately, neither the 10W capped charging power and up to 3 hours waiting time for full charge can be considered credible advantages, the new Motorola product should be treated as a budget phone and that’s about it.
