Motorola’s latest mid-range smartphones are now available for purchase in the US. First announced in February, the Moto G Power is a $250 smartphone with a Snapdragon 665 processor, 6.4 inch FHD+ display and a 5,000 mAh battery.

The $300 Moto G Stylus has similar specs, but swaps the battery for a 4,000 mAh version… and picks up a better camera, more storage, and the stylus that gives the phone its name.
