Motorola's g8 plus means no more missing out when snapping special moments. Its class-leading Quad Pixel camera system delivers 4x low light sensitivity, which means the 48MP main camera sensor, ultra-wide action camera, and 25MP selfie camera give you sharper photos and videos in any light.
The 48MP main camera sensor with laser autofocus puts your subject matter into focus in an instant, while the 25MP selfie cam lets you shine. Its Quad Pixel and Night Vision features work to increase low-light sensitivity to guarantee sharp results, when you're snapping at night.
Designed for those who enjoy a larger screen, the g8 plus 6.3” Max Vision FHD+ display provides a good amount of visual real estate for movies and games. The dual stereo speakers are tuned by Dolby® to deliver a clear, powerful sound with 50% louder bass, completing the immersive experience.
The g8 plus is fitted with a 4000mAh battery to provide up to 8 hours of power after just 15 minutes of charging and up to 40 hours on a full charge.
What is RAM?
RAM (Random Access Memory) is different to the permanent storage provided by hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SSD) or memory cards in your equipment. RAM is used by your device to temporarily store data to carry out everyday operations. The more RAM your machine has, the faster you can expect it to open and run programs.
This device has 4GB of RAM.
With photos, videos and games, the storage on your phone can fill up – not to worry as this device has a handy memory card slot – pop in a memory card that you’ve previously purchased and away you go, saving the need to upgrade or delete precious files.
What is SIM free?
You'll receive an unlocked device, so there’s no requirement to commit to any network, leaving you free to decide which SIM card / network to use. This gives you the opportunity to find the most suitable plan, whether that’s contract or pay-as-you-go, throughout the lifetime of the phone.
Top tip: as this mobile phone is supplied SIM free and unlocked, you have access to SIM only deals – these usually offer far better value for money – especially for all-important data plans.
Please search: ‘SIM only deals best price’. Add the price of the smartphone above to the cost of a SIM only deal for 12/24 months – now compare this amount to the same smartphone purchased on a contract for 12/24 months, for eye-opening results.
You also have the option to add a foreign SIM card, so you can use this device overseas for less as well.
Additional information: manufacturers often update their Operating System (OS) software over the course of a device’s lifespan – this means that your product might ship with a more advanced OS than specified.
