Motorola, on schedule, launched two new G-series smartphones dubbed as the Moto G Power and the Moto G Stylus today. The former is marked for its big battery while the latter one, as the name suggests, comes with the Stylus Pen.
Both the smartphones bear similar design with a punch-hole cutout on the front and vertically-aligned triple-rear camera setup as well as a fingerprint scanner embedded into the Moto batwing logo at the back. The camera resolutions, however, differ for each of the phones.
Both the Moto G Power and the G Stylus pack the same 6.4-inch IPS LCD screen with a small punch-hole cutout on the top-left corner.
Under the hood, the phone duos are powered by a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC coupled with a standard 4GB RAM. The G Power gets a 64GB internal storage option while the G Stylus is offered with 128GB built-in storage. On the software side of things, both Moto G Power and G Stylus boots Android 10 out-of-the-box.
Both the devices feature the same 16MP f/2.2 selfie shooter that lives inside the punch-hole cutout. However, in terms of rear cameras, the Moto G Stylus packs better resolution camera array compared to the Moto G Power.

The Moto G Stylus rear cameras include a 48MP f/1.7 primary sensor, a 2MP f/2.2 macro lens, and a 16MP f/2.2 wide-angle sensor which doubles as an action camera similar to one present on the Motorola One Action. For the uninitiated, the action camera is dedicated to shooting videos, not the stills.
The Moto G Power, on the other hand, makes use of a 16MP f/1.7 primary sensor, 2MP macro lens, and a 16MP ultra-wide sensor. The Moto G Power comes with PDAF but the G Stylus is equipped with laser autofocus.
Coming to the battery, the Moto G Stylus is fueled by a massive 5,000mAh battery whereas the Moto G Power makes use of a 4,000mAh battery for juice.
Considering the specs, it is apparent by now that the Moto G Stylus has an upper hand over the Moto G Power. The Moto G Stylus is, therefore, priced at $299.99 which is slightly on the higher side compared to the $249.99 price of the Moto G Power.
The Moto G Stylus with its Stylus Pen is also an enticing proposition for the customers given that it offers Galaxy Note-series like Stylus experience at an affordable cost. Nevertheless, the Stylus Pen of the Moto G Stylus misses out on pressure sensitivity and Bluetooth functionality of the S Pen offered with the Galaxy Note series.
