The processor and what goes under the hood are the key determining factors for the price. The Moto G8 Plus packs the Snapdragon 665 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage with further expansion support. The Moto G9 is powered by the Snapdragon 662, which are equally good processors. Coupled with 4GB RAM, both devices can handle some popular games like PUBG, COD, and more.

Both devices run the stock Android OS. Apart from the processor, the battery is another determining factor. The Moto G8 Plus is powered by a 4,000 mAh battery, while the Moto G9 is powered by a larger 5,000 mAh battery. Plus new Moto G9 comes with 20W fast charging support, earning more points here.
