The idea of using a stylus is synonymous with productivity and they have always been reserved for the top end Samsung Galaxy Note models. Most manufacturers have deferred from implementing it in their budget devices but it is great to see the Moto G8 Pro Stylus that paves way for a new range of devices.
The Moto G8 Pro has already got launched in Europe under a different name. Buyers in the region refer to it as the Moto G Stylus which has been rebranded and tweaked a bit so that it can be launched around the globe. It had NFC in Europe whereas the USA variant removed the NFC feature for additional safety. Sooner or later, the concept has to be accepted worldwide because contactless payments are the new norm and they help save time while avoiding the pandemic situation caused by proximity.
In terms of specifications, the G8 Pro from Moto features a large 6.4-inch display with a resolution of 2300×1080 allowing more pixels per inch. The device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space. In this era of Bluetooth headphones, it still retains the 3.5mm headphone jack and the fingerprint scanner is a button placed on the rear side of the phone.
The phone sports a triple camera setup with a 48-megapixel main camera while the Moto G8 Pro stylus happens to be the selling point for this device. You can instantly use the pen for taking notes, drawing or to visually represent an idea. The cost is where the Moto G8 Pro shines because it was originally launched at just $300 and even if it goes by $350 for the upgrades, it still would be the most affordable and value for money device that you could purchase in 2020.
