Review and Opinion


I primarily use the Motorola G Power for personal use, talk, text, email, and photography. Sometimes I use an app for work to keep an eye on certain systems at my job. I mostly use the camera for documenting my travels and for photographing products and scenery.


Overall I felt this phone was excellent. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would say it came in around 8. I give it a 8 based on the cost ($99.00) and the 48MP camera.


I really love the way photos turn out on this phone. The camera is capable of taking excellent macro shots with bright, vivid, sharp photos. The camera also provides a 16.9 wide angle lens that was perfect for taking highly detailed landscape shots for my different articles. One drawback is that this camera does not include an ultra-wide angle lens. Even without it, I felt the camera on this phone is good enough, that I often leave my digital camera at home. It can shoot high quality video at 1080P resolution with the rear camera and an impressive 1080P HD resolution with the front facing selfie camera.

RAM and Processor

The 4GB of RAM is sufficient for most every day tasks and the Snapdragon 662 processor can handle things smoothly if I have too many apps open at once. It is an upgrade to the the Moto G Fast.


The built in 64GB of storage is adequate, providing enough storage space for apps, photos, and videos. I am able to expand my storage with with the addition of a 512GB SD card to store photos and video.


The battery life is also excellent with the phone lasting all day with heavy use and nearly 4 days with occasional use.

Overall Impression

I wish this phone offered NFC capability so I could use the phone to pay for things where that function is available. I'm quite satisfied with this phone. It gets the job done well for the money. I hope that Boost Mobile provides an Android 11 update soon. That would make this phone even better than it already is.
