Motorola is back with its latest budget offerings, the 2024 moto g power 5G and 2024 moto g 5G. With these 2024 models, the company is stepping up its game by introducing improved displays, enhanced audio, 5G connectivity, and better battery life. The phones also come with a spiffy new vegan faux leather finish that helps to keep fingerprint smudges to a minimum.

The 2024 models boast a RAM Boost feature, a nifty trick to maximize performance. This feature ingeniously taps into the device’s internal storage, acting as virtual memory to extend the available RAM.

Opting for the moto g power 5G lets you beef up your 8GB RAM with an additional 8GB RAM boost, while the moto g 5G provides a respectable 4GB RAM boost. It’s a move to elevate multitasking capabilities and overall device performance.

If you recall our review of the 2023 moto g power 5G model, the screen quality was a bit lackluster. Now, Motorola is addressing that concern with a 120Hz 6.7-inch FHD+ notchless display on the 2024 moto g power 5G. We’ll reserve judgment until our thorough review, but the specs suggest a promising upgrade for this budget-friendly device.

While many features are carried over from the 2023 model – the 120Hz refresh rate, Dolby Atmos audio, a 50MP rear camera, a 16MP selfie camera, 5G support, and that impressive 5000mAh battery – there are noteworthy enhancements. For example, the 2024 moto g power 5G introduces an 8MP ultra-wide and macro vision lens, a welcome bump from the 6MP on the previous edition.

Additional perks include NFC for mobile payments, support for up to 30W charging, and an 8GB RAM, expandable up to 16GB. However, be prepared for a storage downgrade — the moto g power 5G has just 128GB, down from 256GB, though you can pop in a memory card for up to 1TB expansion.

Under the hood, the 2024 moto g power 5G is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 7020 processor. Now, we weren’t thrilled with the performance of the MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset in the 2023 model, experiencing some choppiness and lag. But let’s keep an open mind until we put this new device through its paces. Wrapping it up, the AI features onboard include Auto Smile Capture, Google Auto Enhance, Shot Optimization, and Google Lens integration.

Sporting a 6.6-inch 120Hz HD+ display with a sleek notchless design, the 2024 moto g 5G is giving off serious moto g power 5G vibes. Expect Dolby Atmos audio and a 50MP camera system, but keep those performance expectations in check – this device isn’t the powerhouse its sibling is. Oh, and there’s a 2MP Macro Vision camera and an 8MP selfie camera tagging along with that 50MP main camera.

Under the hood, we’ve got the midrange Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 mobile platform chipset running the show. The 2024 moto g 5G packs a decent 4GB RAM, but the real party trick is the RAM Boost, pushing that up to 8GB for some added oomph. Plus, a not-too-shabby 128GB of built-in storage, expandable up to a whopping 1TB.

And of course, the 5000mAh battery – a feature we’ve come to love from the 2023 moto g power 5G. Let’s hope it keeps up the stellar performance.
