We are seeing new smartphones entering the market every day. On the contrary to the past, we now have many options to choose from as a buyer. Value for money devices, products from reputed brands, you got it all.
Talking about brands, Motorola was the first to release a mobile phone in the market. Even when Android came conquered the smartphone industry, the OEM stood firm. Having gone through the hands of Google, they used to release timely updates. However, now under the helm of Lenovo, the company is not up to the mark with the firmware overhauls. Neither can they really cope up with the extreme competition from Redmi and Realme.

Despite not being on top of buyers’ priority list, the brand comes up with new devices every now and then. Whether or not they can take the market by storm is another story (do you think it’s possible with an outdated processor?).
The latest to come out from Motorola is Moto G8 Plus. In case you are naive, their G series caters to the budget-sensitive users looking for smartphones under Rs. 20000. So, what do they offer with the new G8 Plus? Let’s find out!
