moto g24 power (Review) – Budget Breakthrough

The POWER series of Motorola has made a triumphant comeback in India with the launch of moto g24 power. The successor to the moto g23 promises a slew of enhancements, boasting a 90Hz screen, and the colossal 6000mAh battery that has become synonymous with the Power series. After a three-year hiatus since the g10 power launch in 2021, anticipation is high – could this be the reigning champion among 4G smartphones below the 10k price spectrum?

Display & Design

The moto g24 power captivates from the get-go with its expansive 6.56-inch HD+ 90Hz LCD screen, delivering a pixel-rich resolution of 1600 × 720 pixels and a 20:9 aspect ratio. The display’s vibrancy and brightness, reaching up to 537 nits peak brightness, offer an immersive visual experience. The phone features a punch-hole screen housing a 16-megapixel camera and a top earpiece that doubles as a secondary speaker.

Despite missing HDR support, the phone compensates with a variety of colour adjustment options. The moto g24 power’s matte finish and IP52 dust and water resistance ratings add a touch of sophistication to its slim 8.99mm frame. The clever integration of a fingerprint scanner into the power button, along with strategic button placements and thoughtful design elements, contribute to an overall user-friendly and stylish package.

Camera

The camera of the moto g24 power includes Night Vision, Portrait, Panorama, Scan, Slow Motion, and Timelapse. Daylight shots exhibit commendable dynamic range, utilising Quad Pixel technology to deliver crisp 12.5MP output. While lacking an ultra-wide lens, the 2MP macro camera provides serviceable close-ups. Portrait mode showcases impressive edge detection, and the 16MP main camera captures striking images. Video recording at 1080p/30fps with EIS ensures smooth footage, complemented by the Slow Motion option and the ability to shoot 720p videos with the 2MP camera.

Performance

Under the hood, the moto g24 power is fueled by the robust MediaTek Helio G85 Octa-Core SoC, a powerhouse crafted on the 12nm architecture. Featuring Dual 2GHz Cortex-A75 + Hexa 2GHz 6x Cortex-A55 CPUs, this chip seamlessly manages day-to-day tasks, from social media perusal to document handling and smooth YouTube video playback. While multitasking with numerous background apps might encounter a slight hiccup, the Helio G85 excels in casual gaming. 

Battery Life

The moto g24 power boasts a colossal 6000mAh battery – a standout feature in its price bracket. Even under the duress of dual 4G connectivity and multimedia indulgence, the phone guarantees a full day’s endurance, extending beyond two days with moderate use. The 33W fast charging capability proves its mettle, reviving the device from 0 to 100% in a brisk 1 hour and 40 minutes, with an impressive 0 to 50% charge achieved in just 45 minutes using the bundled 33W fast charger.

Verdict

Priced at Rs. 8,999*, the moto g24 power is a budget gem that checks nearly every essential box. Boasting a spacious HD+ 90Hz display, a capable processor, impressive daylight camera performance, stereo speakers, and enduring battery life, it delivers a compelling package. The processor might not break speed records, and the weight leans towards the heftier side, but these nuances are overshadowed by its overall commendable and manageable features. In the budget segment, the moto g24 power emerges as a solid contender, offering a satisfying blend of performance and affordability.

Pros

  • Android 14 out of the box
