Motorola announced a pair of new mid-range phones with the G Stylus and G Power back in February, and now both phones are available for pre-order for $299 and $249 respectively. But don’t let the bargain bin prices fool you—these look surprisingly robust in specs.
Update, 4/16/2020: The Moto G Stylus and G Power are available now.
You can grab them unlocked at Best Buy, B&H Photo, Walmart and on Amazon or carrier versions at Verizon, Metro by T-Mobile, Google Fi, Republic Wireless and Ting. (MSRP: $299.99)

On the outside, the phones are very similar. Both feature a large 6.4-inch display with a 2300×1080 19:9 resolution and 16 MP hole-punch front camera, with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the back of each. The guts are equally similar, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 handling processing duties and a now-standard 4 GB of RAM. Both phones also have 3.5 mm headphones jacks, 10-watt rapid charging over USB-C, and a “water repellent design.”
But that’s where the similarities end, as the G Stylus features a higher-quality 48 MP rear camera, and, as indicated by its name, an integrated stylus a la the Samsung Note family. The G Stylus also packs 128 GB of internal storage, but it also has a microSD card slot for all you digital hoarders out there.
The G Power, on the other hand, has a big ol’ beefy 5,000 mAh battery (4,000 mAh on the G Stylus), which Moto says can get you three days worth of use. The bigger battery is a trade-off here, though, because it’s sporting a less-impressive 16 MP rear camera and only 64 GB of internal storage. Like its sibling, however, it has a microSD card slot for expansion.
All told, these phones seem like they’ll each pack a punch higher than their suggested price points of $299 for the G Stylus and $249 for the G Power. How that might play out in reality is, of course, another story altogether. But if you’re already on the hype train, you can pre-order yours today from the links below.
