Moto G24 Power

Motorola released the Moto G34 5G and the Moto G24 Power, two affordable models, to kick out 2024. In our review, the Moto G34 5G was rated as a “well-priced phone that impresses on multiple fronts.” Let’s now examine the Moto G24 Power. In India, the phone costs less than Rs 10,000, however it has a few compromises when compared to the Moto G34 5G. To begin with, the G24 Power isn’t 5G ready.

Verdict

Even if it may not be the best smartphone in the class, the Moto G24 Power is still a device to think about if you want reasonable battery life, good performance for daily usage, and clean software. Nevertheless, the smartphone’s inability to use 5G technology may not be to its advantage.

Design and display

Unlike other recent Motorola smartphones, such as the Rs 10,999 Moto G34, which has a vegan leather back, the Moto G24 Power has a plastic back. The phone has a sleek design with a matte surface that deters smudges and fingerprints despite its relatively unremarkable look. Furthermore, the camera module is not exposed; rather, a little hump encircling the two separate camera rings merges in well with the body’s overall design. The IP52 certification helps to protect the phone from small spills as well.

Despite having a massive 6,000mAh battery, the phone weighs only 197 grams. As a result, holding the gadget for extended periods of time is pleasant. Where the thumb normally rests when holding a smartphone, on the right spine of the device, is where the fingerprint scanner is located. The scanner works a little more slowly, but it is accurate. It also functions as a power button for turning on and off the Moto G24 Power. At the bottom edge is a USB Type-C connection for data transfer and charging.

Cameras

The Moto G24 Power has a dual-rear camera arrangement with a 50MP main sensor and a 2MP macro lens for optical capabilities. The phone has a 16MP camera with a punch-hole design for selfies. At best, these are decent daytime cameras. In well-lit environments, the results display adequate details and color fidelity, giving a pleasant appearance. The main camera focuses on targets and processes photographs quickly, despite the rather low dynamic range.

With a low-cost smartphone, you can very much expect to see photographs taken inside or in low light. The primary lens has trouble focusing, and even in night mode, there is a discernible noise. The performance of the macro sensor appears to be quite mediocre, lacking in both detail and sharpness. However, selfies taken with the front camera have somewhat smoother skin tones and warmer skin tones.

Performance and software

A reasonably priced MediaTek Helio G85 CPU, up to 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of user-expandable storage power the Moto G24 Power. The smartphone’s speed is not its strong point, so you might want to avoid multitasking and visually intensive games on it. For standard functions like messaging, making calls, surfing, and checking social media applications, the phone is perfect. The phone performs similarly in benchmark testing.

You will, however, be happy with the Moto G24 Power software. The phone comes pre-installed with My UX, an Android 14 version that provides a nearly stock experience. Hardly any third-party apps exist, and even Motorola’s in-house apps are still rather few. The phone also has a number of Motorola features, such the ability to chop twice to activate the flash, twist and turn to launch the camera app, and a wide variety of wallpaper options. According to the business, the gadget will receive security upgrades for three years.

Battery life and charging speeds

The Moto G24 Power stands out because to its 6,000mAh battery, which could comfortably last for a day and a half between charges given its usage. I was really happy with the smartphone’s battery backup in the real world, even if it might not show up in the PC Mark battery test. I spent almost eight hours using the screen for surfing, streaming, and navigating.

The phone comes with a USB Type-A to Type-C charging connection and a 33W rapid charging adaptor for charging. This combination allows the phone to charge fully from 0% to 100% in around two hours, which is faster than most phones in this price range on average.

Final verdict

The Moto G24 Power, which starts at Rs 8,999, is a decent smartphone for those on a low budget or who don’t need 5G connection. On the other hand, substitutes such as the iTel P55 (review) and Lava Blaze 2 (review) ought to be taken into account if the latter is necessary. Both smartphones have 5G capability and cost less than Rs 10,000. They also have a higher power output than the Motorola gadget.

On the other hand, the Moto G24 Power has an IP certification and a simple design. The tablet also performs exceptionally well in terms of reliable operation, clean software, and long battery life.
