In these two phones the companies opted for the shiny plastic on the back and the same material on the body. They also use visual effects for differentiation, with something more holographic on the A50 and gradient on the G8 Plus.

Motorola left the round camera module in the G7 and adopted the vertical traffic light arrangement of its One line, the same practiced by Samsung with the A50, only more striking and protruding, with a larger camera separate from the main module.

The Galaxy A50 is lighter and thinner than the Motorola, but the overall size is almost the same between them. There is no protection against water on the Samsung, but the Moto G8 Plus provides resistance against splashing water. The notch is drop-shaped for both.

Both are dual SIM and the A50 brings cradle with slots independent of the third, which can be occupied by the microSD, while the G8 Plus is hybrid. On the A50, biometrics is more practical in front of and below the screen, but it is slow. The G8 Plus is at the rear, and is faster.

The latter also has a more rounded body and better grip, while the less curved body of the A50 is more elegant.

The screen size is almost the same for both, with 6.3 inches for the Moto G8 Plus and 6.4 inches for the Galaxy A50. Being the same size, the body screen ratio is better on Samsung, which has a big chin like its rival, but a smaller top edge.

The FullHD + definition is the same for both, and the main differences are in the presence of Gorilla Glass 3 on the A50, in addition to its Super AMOLED technology, while the G8 Plus still has the IPS LCD.

IPS itself is not a bad technology, but the one used by Motorola tends to bring darkened edges, besides the brightness is not very strong, being lower than that of its competitor. The A50 does better outdoors and has more intense colors. The aspect of the A50 is 19.5: 9, a little longer than the 19: 9 of the G8 Plus.

The display point is the Galaxy A50.

Motorola has invested more in audio, so its loudspeaker above the screen is larger and complete with the bass, a stereo set, the A50 being only mono. The Samsung even has decent power, but the sound quality is disappointing in clarity and detail.

At least the sound part of the G8 Plus does not disappoint. In addition to stereo speakers, there is also Dolby Atmos technology for greater immersion in films. The sound power is very good, as well as the quality delivered. It also has settings for wireless sound and both have P2 input.

The Moto G8 Plus also has Dolby Atmos technology, and brings good power and quality, being superior. And it is also better for headphones, bringing comfortable and good-sounding intra-ear models in the box. The A50 delivers headphones just like those of the most basic M line, they are simple and with low power.

This point is then the Moto G8 Plus.

There are two Android phones, but each one being a manufacturer has different interfaces. The A50, like the G8 Plus, comes out of the box with Android 9 Pie from the factory, but the Samsung smartphone has already received the update to Android 10.

It is likely that it will reach Android 11, while we are still waiting for the update for the Motorola device. It has a simpler interface, with fewer resources and easier handling. Its highlight is the Moto App, which brings some special gestures for system control and navigation extras.

Android 10 comes with the South Korean OneUI 2 interface, with rights to themes and dark mode, in addition to better usability for one-handed use on larger screens. It is an interface with many features.

In connections, the basics are covered by both, with WiFi ac and Bluetooth 5.0, but the Galaxy A50 gains a lead by also bringing built-in digital TV, compass and ANT +, protocol for health devices. None of them has NFC.

In this regard the Galaxy A50 takes the best and gets the point.

A classic Snapdragon clash against an Exynos, as you love it. And what will be the result? On the A50 we have an Exynos 9610 with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal space. The G8 Plus brings a Snapdragon 665 also with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.

In the less technical translation, that is, benchmarks, the Moto G8 Plus outperforms the numbers, being 15% better in different versions. However, in the opening tests we have opposite results, because the A50 does better, and the numbers show that Motorola is stumbling on system optimization.

This is clearer in games, where the G8 Plus performed better in titles than Samsung, running with superior fluidity. On the A50 it is possible to use graphics at maximum, but the fluidity will not be the same, showing to have a lower GPU.

Even faster in multitasking, the A50 lags behind the rest compared to the G8 Plus, which takes the point.

Both smartphones arrive with the same number on the battery, 4,000 mAh. But one of them does better in overall duration, and this is the Moto G8 Plus. At almost 20 and a half hours long, it makes more than two and a half hours longer than the A50.

There are two more hours of screen time, and the Galaxy A50 only comes out of trouble when recharging, which with just over an hour and fifty in the socket is better than the almost two hours and ten minutes of the G8 Plus. But it's not a huge difference, even though the A50's 15W charger and the Moto G8 Plus's 18W charger. They do not bring wireless charging.

Lasting longer, the Moto G8 Plus gets the point.

Both the Moto G8 Plus and the Galaxy A50 feature a triple set of rear cameras, almost in the same specifications, but with important differences:

  • Galaxy A50: 25 megapixel main wide and f / 1.7 aperture with PDAF; 8 megapixel ultrawide; 5 megapixel depth sensor.
  • Moto G8 Plus: 48 megapixel main wide and f / 1.7 aperture with PDAF, Laser AF and optical stabilization; 16 megapixel ultrawide; 5 megapixel depth sensor.

You can see that Motorola has taken a closer look at the set, not only in megapixels but also in extra focus features. However, it loses in the versatility of photos because its ultrawide is exclusive for videos.

On the main camera, the two combine pixels into one to get better pictures, and while the G8 Plus does better on closer shots, Samsung's phone will make better shots in open and wide spaces.

The depth sensor works best on the A50, and is one of the highlights of the set, blurring very well in portrait mode. The wide also gives advantage to the A50, since the G8 Plus does not take pictures. In addition, there is not much difference in quality and details from the main to it.

In less light situations, the Moto G8 Plus does better, since it brings Night Vision mode and, although it does not have incredible pictures, it can see better than the A50. In return, the A50's HDR does a good job on indoors with less light.

Finally, they tie here, with the best quality of the G8 Plus and the versatility of the A50.
