Motorola Moto G9 Power: The Bad Crisp Display But Standard HD+ Resolution With 60Hz Refresh Rate
The Motorola Moto G9 Power has one of the tallest displays in its segment. The device adorns a 6.8-inch panel which has standard 720 x 1640 pixels HD+ resolution. It is an IPS LCD panel that offers a pixel density of 263 PPI and an 83.1 percent screen-to-boy ratio.

Brightness levels are average. You will have slight difficulties in watching the content under direct sunlight. Also, the panel has a standard 60hz refresh rate. The competitions are currently offering a 90hz panel. Take, for instance, the Realme Narzo and the Realme 7 series. A higher refresh rate would have solidified the deal.

The Motorola Moto G9 Power ships with Android 10 OS. The device offers a stock Android experience. The clean UI which comes free of bloatware and pre-installed third-party apps is smooth to use. The device has gesture based-navigations toggled-on by default. You get basic Android 10 elements such as Digital wellbeing and others as well. The unit is backed by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC which is built on 11nm architecture. The octa-core processor clocks over 2GHz and is paired with Adreno 610 GPU. The device can render high-end graphics with ease. The Moto G9 Power is announced in a single 4GB RAM and 128GB storage option. To suffice the storage needs, the unit also has up to 512GB microSD card support. The handset is good at multitasking. No lags as such. Gaming also seems decent. We will be giving detailed feedback on its performance in the coming days.

The company has added 20W fast charging in the mix as well. The fast charging support with this big battery is undeniably the X-factor here.
