It’s a phone, focused on three things – display, camera and battery, and for the price, it scores great on all three. Before we get going – here’s the box contents – a 30W charger, a USB-C to USB-C cable and a case.
The Moto G9 Play has a large 6.81-inch display of excellent 2400x1080px resolution. Embedded into its corner is punch hole for the 16MP selfie camera.
Unfortunately the display is not OLED but IPS LCD and seemingly not one with the best contrast out there. Most casual users will find no faults with this screen, but some competitors in this segment will have a nicer-looking display nonetheless.
The Moto G9 Plus comes with an ample 5,000mAh battery that should deliver a few days of use. The phone’s efficient 8nm Snapdragon 730G chipset should sip the battery and this Moto lacks any serious drainers like a high refresh rate display to tamper with endurance. Better yet the provided 30W charger should offer speedy top ups, but we’ll have to complete the full review to give you exact numbers.
Finally, there’s the main camera array, which is highlighted by a 64MP Quad-Bayer sensor that natively outputs 16MP snaps. Motorola boasts of its Night Vision capabilities and we’ll be sure to test them thoroughly.
The rest of the cameras are a 8MP ultrawide unit and a pair of mostly useless 2MP cameras advertised as macro and depth helpers.
