Moto Razr foldable unfolded sitting in box speaker

Lenovo-owned Motorola covers all the bases with its phone lineup, giving consumers plenty of options to choose from. Whether you’re looking for an expensive or an entry-level device, the company has you covered. We take a look at the best Motorola phone available at different price points, starting at well over a grand and going down to as low as $100. Let’s dive in.

Best Motorola phones:

Editor’s note: We will update our list of the best Motorola phones as new devices launch.


1. Motorola Razr 2019

Moto Razr foldable unfolded upright on table

The Motorola Razr looks much like the classic Razr V3 mobile flip phone that was first released in 2004. The new Razr is also as thin as the original at 14mm. However, when it unfolds from its retro clamshell body, it exposes a large 6.2-inch 21:9 display. When folded, you can still use a square 2.7-inch display on the outside to check notifications, control media, and more. You can even take selfies while using the small display since the 16MP rear camera turns into a front-facing camera when the phone is folded.

The specs of the new Motorola Razr foldable phone are not what you would find on most flagships. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chip inside, along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There’s also a small 2,510mAh battery and, for some reason, it ships with Android 9 Pie out of the box instead of Android 10.

The Motorola Razr is exclusive, at least for the moment, to Verizon Wireless in the US. It’s the most expensive phone on this list, but it’s also the most unique one.


Motorola Razr 2019 specs:

  • Display: 6.2-inch main, 2.7-inch secondary
  • SoC: Snapdragon 710
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Camera: 16MP
  • Front camera: N/A
  • Battery: 2,510mAh
  • Software: Android 9 Pie

2. Motorola Moto Z4

Motorola Moto Z4 review in repose

The Motorola Moto Z4 is the newest Z-series smartphone, but Motorola curiously equipped the phone with mid-range specs. In this case, we have the Snapdragon 675, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, and a 48MP camera. Wait, what?

Yes, that’s right — the Moto Z4 is one of those mid-range smartphones with flagship aspirations. There’s an aluminum frame sandwiched between two glass panels, a sharp 6.4-inch AMOLED display, and an in-display fingerprint scanner. There’s even a headphone jack, something most flagship smartphones live without.

The main highlight of the handset is its Moto Mods support. The rear magnets are here and accounted for, but Mods aren’t as secure on the Moto Z4 as they are on other Moto Z smartphones. As a result, our Eric Zeman found the Moto Z4 a bit uncomfortable to use when also using a Moto Mod.

Motorola Moto Z4 specs:

  • Display: 6.4-inch Full HD+
  • Chipset: Snapdragon 675
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Camera: 48MP
  • Front camera: 25MP
  • Battery: 3,600mAh
  • Software: Android 9 Pie

3. Motorola One Zoom

In some ways, the Motorola One Zoom is the company’s true affordable flagship. The smartphone comes with a quad-camera system, a satin finish for the rear glass panel, a Full HD+ OLED display, and a huge 4,000mAh battery with fast charging support. There’s also a headphone jack and an in-display fingerprint scanner.

However, the One Zoom leaves us with a few questions. The One Zoom features the same Snapdragon 675 found in the Moto Z4, which left us wanting in the performance department.

Also a question is the software. Even though the One Zoom is part of Motorola’s One series, the phone is not part of the Android One program. That means you’ll have to hope Motorola delivers timely updates to the One Zoom, something the company’s struggled with for years.

  • Front camera: 25MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9 Pie

4. Motorola Moto G Power

Motorola Moto G Power right profile

Known as the Moto G8 Power in some markets, this phone’s USP is its battery life. It packs a 5,000mAh cell that can last up to three days, according to Motorola. The battery should be good for 150 hours of music playback or 27 hours of video binging. Not bad!

The G Power is a mid-range smartphone packing the Snapdragon 665 chipset under the hood along with 4GB of RAM. It has a modern design with a punch-hole display and comes with three rear cameras. It also sports a headphone jack and supports expandable storage.

The phone is already up for sale on Motorola’s website and retailed for just over $250, making it affordable.

  • Cameras: 16, 8, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 16MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

5. Motorola Moto G Stylus

The Moto G Stylus is similar to the Moto G Power in many ways. It looks more or less the same and has the same chipset, display, and selfie snapper. However, it comes with a smaller 4,000mAh battery and a different (better) rear camera setup.

But the biggest difference is that it features a stylus that lets you do stuff like take notes and open apps without putting your finger on the display. The great thing about the stylus is that as soon as you pull it out of the phone, the new Moto Note app opens automatically.

Like the Moto G Power, the G stylus is also up for pre-order on Motorola’s website. There’s no word on when it will officially go on sale, but we probably won’t have to wait for much longer.

  • Front camera: 16MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

6. Motorola Moto G8 Plus

The Moto G8 Plus features a 6.3-inch IPS display, three rear camera sensors, a rear fingerprint scanner, USB-C, and a headphone jack. The 4,000mAh battery inside the phone is a big step up from the 3,000mAh battery on the G7, so this phone should last all day on a single charge. It also has 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor.

Even though the Moto G8 Plus has three rear cameras (48MP, 16MP, and a 5MP depth sensor), our review of the phone shows that the actual pictures that are made with them are “lackluster”. The 16MP sensor is an “action camera” that takes video landscape clips while you hold your phone vertically. The phone has a 25MP front-facing camera, which is great for taking selfies. The phone does come with Android 9 Pie out of the box, instead of Android 10.

Despite a few drawbacks, the G8 Plus is still one of the best Motorola phones you can get. It looks great and packs more than enough power under the hood for the average user.

Motorola Moto G8 Plus specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch Full HD+
  • Chipset: Snapdragon 665
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64GB
  • Cameras: 48, 16, and 5MP
  • Front camera: 25MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9 Pie

7. Motorola One Hyper

Motorola Moto One Hyper screen

The Motorola One Hyper runs a near-stock version of Android 10, without a lot of UI changes.

The “Hyper” in the Motorola One Hyper name comes from the fact that this phone can really charge up quickly. It supports 45W charging for its 4,000mAh battery. If you buy a 45W charger (you get an 18W charger in the box), you will be able to get a day’s worth of use with just 10 minutes of charging.

Other specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chip, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of expandable storage. The Motorola One Hyper has two rear cameras, including a huge 64MP main sensor and an 8MP wide-angle camera. There’s also a 32MP front-facing camera with a pop-up mechanism, which means more screen-to-body space for the phone’s 6.5-inch display.

Motorola One Hyper specs:

  • Display: 6.5-inch Full HD+
  • Chipset: Snapdragon 675
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Cameras: 64 and 8MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

8. Motorola One Action

One of the newer members of the expanding Motorola One range, the Motorola One Action is a quirky smartphone. The display’s 21:9 aspect ratio makes the phone a little awkward to hold, though it also makes for easier one-handed use. There’s also a huge punch-hole selfie camera.

What helps the One Action stand out is the “action” camera. Motorola tilted the lens by 90 degrees, meaning you can shoot landscape video while holding the phone in portrait mode. In his review, our Oliver Cragg actually liked the convenience of recording wide-angle video without flipping the phone sideways to do so.

There’s more to like about the One Action. The promise of two years of guaranteed OS updates and security patches gave us some peace of mind, while Samsung’s Exynos 9609 processor and 4GB of RAM are a surprisingly impressive combination.

Motorola One Action specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch Full HD+
  • Chipset: Exynos 9609
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Cameras: 12, 16, and 5MP
  • Front camera: 12MP
  • Battery: 3,500mAh
  • Software: Android 9 Pie

9. Motorola Moto G8 and G8 Power Lite

The Moto G8.

The Moto G8 is a mid-ranger that packs everything an average user needs in an eye-catching phone that won’t break the bank. You get the Snapdragon 665 chipset, a 6.4-inch display, and a 4,000mAh battery. The phone runs Android 10 and comes with three rear cameras.

For those who are even less demanding and want to save money, the G8 Power Lite is the better choice. It offers a slightly bigger 6.5-inch display, a weaker MediaTek Helio P35 chipset, and a slightly different camera setup. The major downside of the phone is that it ships with Android Pie instead of Android 10. But it does have a bigger battery than the Moto G8 at 5,000mAh.

Unfortunately, neither phone is available for purchase at the moment. However, both will go on sale in Europe soon. Motorola already has them listed on its website where you can sign up to get notified once they go up for pre-order.


Motorola Moto G8 specs:

  • Display: 6.4-inch HD+
  • Chipset: Snapdragon 665
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64GB
  • Cameras: 16, 8, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite specs:

  • Display: 6.5-inch HD+
  • Chipset: MediaTek Helio P35
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64GB
  • Cameras: 16, 2, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9 Pie

10. Motorola Moto E6s

If you just need a smartphone to do smartphone things and don’t want to spend much money, take a strong look at the Motorola Moto E6s.

The latest entry in the ongoing Moto E series, the Moto E6s keeps its ambitions firmly in check. It’s aimed at undemanding users and comes with a 6.1-inch HD+ display, a removable 3,000mAh battery, and just 2GB of RAM. Other specs and features worth mentioning include the MediaTek Helio P22 chipset, a headphone jack, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.

Despite being a cheap phone, it still looks quite modern thanks to its relatively thin bezels and a waterdrop notch. The Moto E6s was not released in the US, but it is available in various European countries. But keep in mind that the phone is very similar to last year’s Moto E6 Plus. The only major differences between the two are that the Plus model can be had with more RAM and features a higher resolution selfie camera at 8MP.

Motorola Moto E6s specs:

  • Display: 6.1-inch HD+
  • Chipset: MediaTek Helio P22
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Storage: 32GB
  • Cameras: 13 and 2MP
  • Front camera: 5MP
  • Battery: 3,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9 Pie
