Motorola Moto G8

Design and Display

The Moto G8 is not looking bad at all. It still maintains the elegant body design of its siblings. It comes in a smooth panel and curved edges making it stay firm in any palm. To cut the price, the company built the device with plastic both on the panel and frame.

It’s only on the front that you will get to see glass. This is not that bad because it’s hardly noticeable. The Moto G8 measures 161.3 x 75.8 x 9 mm in dimensions and weight 188.3 g.

On the front side, the G8 comes with a 6.4-inch punch-hole Max Vision display with an HD+ resolution just like the G Play version. The screen has a resolution of 720 x 1560 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio, and 268 PPI density. It reaches up to 82.2% screen-to-body ratio.

Camera

For photography, the Moto G8 is equipped with a triple rear camera set-up. The top camera is an 8MP ultrawide angle sensor with a 118° field of view. This is followed by a 16MP f/1.7 primary camera and a 2MP macro camera. As for the fourth hole, it’s not a camera but for the laser autofocus module.

And then the branded logo has a fingerprint scanner underneath it. The main camera comes with some features such as LED flash, HDR, panorama and it can shoot 4K videos at 30 seconds per frame. The hole at the top left corner houses the selfies snapper of 8 MP.
