The Moto G series has been downgraded from the Motorola One series, and some previous models have not improved much. To revive the Moto G series, Motorola has brought Moto G9 to India, and we are the first market to acquire this new smartphone.

Moto G9 Design: Tall and Shiny
I spent some time with Motorola Moto G9 when it started and you can read my first impressions of this tool. Moto G9 has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel with HD + resolution and a 6.5: 20 aspect ratio, which is great for viewing content in landscape mode. However, when using this phone with one hand, it is not easy to reach the top of the display, and the hands have to shuffle rapidly. The Motorola has thinner bezels on its sides, but the chin is thicker. Now we show more and more smartphones with a hole punch in the budget section, but Motorola has stuck to the more traditional Dodrop mark for selfie cameras.
Hold this phone and you will see that its length is more than 9 mm. The sides are square but they rotate at the back which gives you a good grip on the device. Motorola is packed with a 5000mAh battery, and so does Moto G9’s 200g scale. After using this smartphone for some time, you will see the weight.
Motorola has added a dedicated Moto G9 Assistant button which is a neat touch, but can be changed. It is on the top right of the device and is not easily accessible by holding it. The power and volume buttons on Moto G9 are also on the right, so that’s a total of four. The Motorola Moto G9 Assistant button can be placed to the left, as it is on the Nokia 5.3 (preview), which I recently tested.

Moto G9 specification and software
Motorola Moto G9 is India’s first smartphone to support Qualcomm Snapdragon 662SC. It is an octaic core processor built on 2 core 11nm processors at 2GHz and the other four cores at 1.8GHz. The performance core runs at a lower clock speed than the Snapdragon 665SC, so it would be interesting to see a difference in performance if anything happens to the standards.

The 6.5-inch display has HD + resolution, which is not the maximum at this price, and a full-HD + display with features such as the Redmi Note 9 (preview). There is a hybrid dual SIM tray, so if your device has two SIMs, you will not be able to increase storage, which can be a problem because Moto G9 is only available in one configuration. You get 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, and it costs Rs. 11,499.
Motorola offers MyUX on top of Android 10 with very little customization. It seems that you are using stock Android which has some useful features. The Moto action allows you to create some shortcuts using gestures. Moto G9 uses swipe-based gesture navigation by default, but if you agree, you’ll switch to the traditional three-button format.
Moto G9 Display: Comfortable User Enjoyment
A new processor is always eager for testing, so I was curious to know if Qualcomm Snapdragon 662SC performs. I did not face any break while loading menus and stock applications in Android UI. I can easily load multiple apps and multi-tasks between them. However, it took a long time to load heavy apps and games.
In PC Markworks 2.0, he scored 7,604 points over Nokia 5.3 with his Snapdragon 665SC. I could not find a tattoo to run on Moto G9. Another competitor, the Redmi Note 9, outperformed the CPU, but its graphics scores were weaker in benchmarks than Moto G9’s, but this may be due to differences in resolutions between these phones.
Battery life was good with Moto G9, and lasted a day and a half after using the phone. The high-capacity battery helps Moto G9 take the lead over the Nokia 5.3. In our HD video loop test, the smartphone lasted 14 hours and 40 minutes. Motorola sends a 20W high speed charger to the box which helps to charge the device relatively quickly. Moto G9 grew 32 percent in 30 minutes and 63 percent in an hour.
Test asphalt 9
I played Asphalt 9 on Moto G9, and it took a little longer than normal to load this game. The quality of the graphics was set by default and I did not feel any interference in the races I played. Blowing up the graphics caused some lethargy. After playing for 20 minutes, the phone barely warmed up and I saw a 4% decrease in battery level.
Moto G9 Camera: Decisive Actor
I was a little surprised to see Motorola for a triple camera setup, given that most smartphones are now sporting four cameras at this price level, although their pricing is debatable. The default 12-megapixel output uses a 48-megapixel primary camera pixel binding to provide. I would have preferred a wide-angle camera over a macro camera, which would have been more useful. The camera app is well configured and I have never struggled to find the configuration I was looking for. You get several shooting modes which are neatly placed in the submenu.
I think Moto G9 was quick to recognize scenes and set the camera, and it automatically enabled HDR in bright environments. It did not recreate the best dynamic range in daylight shots, but it came with a lot of detail.
The low light camera performance however is below average and the photos look darker. Enabling Night Mode can have a detrimental effect on the camera’s performance, allowing Moto G9 to render brighter images with better detail.
