What you need to know
- The Moto G Power and Stylus are now available on Google Fi.
- There's a $50 discount if you choose to buy them outright.
- Alternatively, you can sign up from $8.30 for a payment plan.
Buyers can grab a $50 discount if they purchase it outright and activate a new line bringing the price points down to $199 for the Moto G Power and $249 for the Moto G Stylus. Alternatively, they can sign up for monthly plans which range from $8.29 for the Power to $10.38 for the Stylus.
While the G Power and G Stylus are Lenovo's newest mid-range efforts, they don't command equal value. Sure, they both have pretty good battery life, attractive designs, and good displays — but the lack of NFC is disappointing in 2020, and slow charging means you'll spend more time waiting for both phones to get up and running if that long battery dwindles.
In our G Stylus review, we noted:
By all measures, the Moto G Power is a better phone and deal, offering superb battery life and a true ultra-wide photo camera for some $50 less. And with the impending release of the Pixel 4a, which is expected to debut for $399, not only will the budget category become even more competitive, but the Pixel 3a will likely see its current $299 sale price go permanent. Head-to-head, the G Stylus just doesn't come close.
On the other hand, with the $50 discount from Fi, even purchasing both phones outright is beginning to look a little more attractive.
A long-lasting, competently put together smartphone. Ultrawide and macro cameras just add to the fun factor.
With a full-screen, lightweight, pleasant design and a stylus — it's essentially a more expensive version of the G Power. If you're especially interested in using a stylus, this one may be worth your consideration.

Review: The Galaxy S10 Lite is a great phone ruined by a high price tag
With a Snapdragon 855 chipset, massive 4500mAh battery, 48MP camera at the back, and a large 6.7-inch AMOLED screen, the Galaxy S10 Lite is one of the better phones Samsung has released in recent years. But you're just not getting enough value here.
Are you getting tired of flagship smartphones?
Flagship smartphones are a lot of fun to look and gawk at, but are you still willingly paying for them? Here's what some of our AC forum members have to say.
Keep your Moto G Power’s screen looking pretty with these screen protectors
The Moto G Power is an interesting device given its massive 5,000mAh battery. With a device that can go all day, you'll want to keep that screen looking good, especially since Motorola moved to a pin-hole cutout for the front-facing camera. These are the best screen protectors you can get for the G Power today!
