You may know Motorola best as the company behind the iconic Razr flip phone that was the envy of every phone owner in the 2000s. Motorola has long history of releasing solid and stylish devices, and its newest budget smartphone, the $299 Motorola G8, is now available for purchase through Vodafone.
The Motorola G8 comes with some great features, and being coupled to a Vodafone phone plan makes it an attractive offer, especially considering what Vodafone is throwing in with G8 sales – a bonus Lenovo Smart Clock with an inbuilt Google Assistant (valued at $129).
Vodafone’s free Lenovo Smart Clock offer is valid until December 31, or while stocks last.
The Motorola G8 – Pick it up with a Vodafone plan
Vodafone is offering the G8 on device payment plans spanning 12, 24 and 36 month periods. You’ll be able to couple the phone to any of Vodafone’s five month-to-month postpaid plans. Orders made before December 31 (and while stocks last) will include a Lenovo Smart Clock, which also includes a Google Assistant.
Prices and payment periods for the G8 can be found below:
- 12 months: $24.91 per month, minimum cost $299
- 24 months: $12.45 per month, minimum cost $299

Should I buy the Motorola G8?
The Motorola G8 is a well-rounded budget smartphone, sitting at a nice price and with great mid-range features. The most attractive feature is certainly the price – at $299, it’s hard to beat for anyone looking for a reliable Android phone on a budget. The bottom line is, if you’re after a value-for-money-phone, you could certainly do worse than the Motorola G8.
The phone has four cameras on board – three on the back (16MP wide, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro) and one on the front (8MP), perfect for general use. The screen is about 6.4 inches in size, taking up about 82.2% of the body, with a 720 x 1560 resolution.
The phone comes with 64GB of internal memory with 4GB of RAM, with an upgrade-able memory card option in the SIM slot. The battery is a large 4,000mAh, charging with 10W.
There’s also a Snapdragon 665 CPU and Adreno 610 GPU built into the phone, so this phone will be able to handle games pretty well. Through Vodafone, you can get the G8 in Blue or White.
