Motorola's g8 plus means no more missing out when snapping special moments. Its class-leading Quad Pixel camera system delivers 4x low light sensitivity, which means the 48MP main camera sensor, ultra-wide action camera, and 25MP selfie camera give you sharper photos and videos in any light.

Amazing cameras
The 48MP main camera sensor with laser autofocus puts your subject matter into focus in an instant, while the 25MP selfie cam lets you shine. Its Quad Pixel and Night Vision features work to increase low-light sensitivity to guarantee sharp results, when you're snapping at night.

Be immersed
Designed for those who enjoy a larger screen, the g8 plus 6.3” Max Vision FHD+ display provides a good amount of visual real estate for movies and games. The dual stereo speakers are tuned by Dolby® to deliver a clear, powerful sound with 50% louder bass, completing the immersive experience.

40-hour battery
The g8 plus is fitted with a 4000mAh battery to provide up to 8 hours of power after just 15 minutes of charging and up to 40 hours on a full charge.

What is RAM?
RAM (Random Access Memory) is different to the permanent storage provided by hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SSD) or memory cards in your equipment. RAM is used by your device to temporarily store data to carry out everyday operations. The more RAM your machine has, the faster you can expect it to open and run programs.

This device has 4GB of RAM.

Additional storage
With photos, videos and games, the storage on your phone can fill up – not to worry as this device has a handy memory card slot – pop in a memory card that you’ve previously purchased and away you go, saving the need to upgrade or delete precious files.

Why do you say that?

Why do you say that?


Because of phones such as Xiaomi 8T, Note 7 Pro, Mi A2, Mi A3, 9Lite, Honor 8X and 9X which offer similar or better cpu perfomance, with better camera, for about same price or less.

£200 is simply not a deal for such a mediocre camera present on Moto G8 Plus.

I was a big fan of Moto phones, Had Moto G2, G4 and G6 Plus, but never again. They used to be £130-150 phones, with unbeatable specs for that price. Not anymore.

When I replaced my Moto G6 Plus with a Xiaomi Mi A2 my jaw dropped. The camera was miles ahead.

Yep, the Mi A2 was superb.

Have you a link for that? I have a Moto G6 plus, but if the mi A2 is that much better, and has additional 128gb I may move to that instead. Can I ask your opinion on such a choice @Mrswitch ("sigh" I miss the days when you were non-binary)?

Thanks @tyr, didn't realise it was previously posted deal, albeit I note there are separate arguments on that post on what to buy too. Possibly even more confused. I loved my Moto G4 plus, I miss it like an early girlfriend -it ended too soon. I upgraded to the G6 plus when I realised that G4s were still going for more than G5s, but never been as happy with it. Was waiting for G8 Plus buy Lenovo/Motorola are already heavily discounting it. The G7 only just started getting cheaper. This suggests to me that they either have no faith in the model, or that they are reducing to compete with the heavily discounted phones that are state subsidised by China (I understood that Lenova isn't?). Not sure if I should jump on this or wait for sales now??
