The Moto G series is Motorola's low-cost Android model, and with the newly launched Moto G Power 5G (2023) featuring upgraded specifications, this is the company's effort to blur the lines between its entry-level and mid-range smartphones.

Motorola is sparing no expense with the Android 13-powered Moto G Power 5G. Most of these changes are internal with the more efficient MediaTek Dimensity 930 SoC powering the device. The octa-core processor is then mated to 6 GB of RAM and 256 GB of on-board memory, which are double that of its predecessor.

Moto G Power 5G has a faster charging speed and sharper display

While the 5,000 mAh battery remains unchanged, Motorola is equipping the device with a faster 15W charging rate. Estimated battery life is unknown, although it is safe to say longer screen-on-time is expected, particularly assisted by the more efficient 6 nm Dimensity chipset.

Overall, the smartphone is lighter and more compact with even thinner front bezels. The 6.5-inch IPS display is the same as the 2022 model, but the Moto G Power 5G will arrive with Full HD resolution alongside a fluid 120 Hz refresh rate. Residing right at the top center of the panel is a new 16MP selfie camera.

Noticeably, the back has a rectangular and raised camera island, which partially resembles the recently leaked Moto G Stylus 2023 and the Motorola Edge 30 Neo that Carsten reviewed. In addition, the 50 MP main camera is included alongside a pair of 2 MP sensors.

Motorola Moto G Power 5G price and release date

Motorola's Moto G Power 5G (2023) is priced at a relatively affordable $300. The Lenovo subsidiary claims the Moto G Power 5G will be released on April 13. It will be sold at major US online retailers with plans for a Canada rollout at a later date. The handset will come in a solitary 6 GB RAM/256 GB storage configuration in black or white colors.

If you prefer having a stylus-compatible device on a budget, Motorola is also rumored to launch the Moto G Stylus (2023) and Moto G Stylus 5G (2023) soon. Unfortunately, there is no word on how much these smartphones will cost, but both may share certain specifications as the Moto G Power.

With these hardware improvements and changes, do you think the Motorola G Power 5G is a better buy than the Samsung Galaxy A34 (review) at a similar price?

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
