HIGHLIGHTS Moto G30 and G10 Power have launched in India Moto G30 comes with Snapdragon 662, 90Hz display, and a 5,000mAh battery Moto G10 Power specifications include a 6,000mAh battery, Android 11 OS, and 20W charging
I tried using the “moto g10” (hereinafter g10) and “moto g30” (hereinafter g30) released by Motorola Mobility Japan on March 26th. The “moto g” series is a hot seller of the company, and there are midrange models with excellent cost performance. Previously, the numbers “g7”, “g8”, and “g9” represented the generation, but this season the numbers represent the grade, and g30 has slightly higher specifications than g10. For overseas, there is also an intermediate “g20”.
First, let’s check the difference in the specifications of g10 and g30.
- Price …… 9,499 INR
- Processor …… Snapdragon 460 (1.8GHz 8 cores)
- Main memory / storage …… 4GB / 64GB
- Out-camera …… Main (48 million pixels) + Super wide-angle (8 million pixels) + Macro (2 million pixels + Depth sensor (2 million pixels))
- In-camera …… 8 million pixels

- Size …… 75.73 (width) x 165.22 (height) x 9.19 (depth) mm
- Weight …… 180 grams
- Price …… 10,990 INR
- Processor …… Snapdragon 662 (2.0GHz 8 cores)
- Main memory / stray …… 4GB / 128GB
- Out-camera …… Main (64 million pixels) + Super wide-angle (8 million pixels) + Macro (2 million pixels) + Depth sensor (2 million pixels)
- In-camera …… 13 million pixels
- Charger …… 20W TurboPower charger included
- Size …… 75.73 (width) x 165.22 (height) x 9.14 (depth) mm
- Weight …… 200g
Both are equipped with a 6.5-inch IPS liquid crystal display and have a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. The size is the same, and there are many parts in common with the design. The big difference is the processor, storage capacity, and main camera specs. The price difference is only 4000 yen, so many people may be wondering which one to choose.
“moto g10” and “moto g30” 2021 How different with design?
The design is almost the same, but the texture of the back panel is different
The two models are also very similar in design. It is almost the same when viewed from the front, and the in-camera is mounted on the drop-shaped notch. The display specifications are the same, but when compared with the default settings at maximum brightness, the g30 was slightly more bluish and the g10 was displayed yellowish. However, the difference is not enough to affect visibility. The “refresh rate” of g30 can be set, and it can be set to 90Hz.
Both models are equipped with an assistant key, volume key, and Power key on the right side. Equipped with a SIM / microSD slot on the left side, the microSD will be used exclusively with the second SIM. It has an earphone jack on the top and a USB Type-C port and speaker on the bottom. The subtle difference is that the g30 has microphones on both the top and bottom. Since the g10 is only at the bottom, the g30 will be advantageous for video recording and recording.
The back panel has the same camera design and fingerprint sensor as the Motorola logo, but the texture of the panel is different. The g10 has a wavy line design and an uneven design. The g30 is a gradation paint, and the design looks rich, with the expression changing depending on how the light hits it.
Which one you can choose-
There is no difference in usability, and convenient “Moto action”
The initial OS for both g10 and g30 is Android 11. Motorola’s smartphones are equipped with Android with almost no customization. The g10 and g30 home apps were also close to pure Android, simple, and easy to use.
Motorola’s unique features allow you to check the features in the preset “Moto” app on the home screen and enable what you need. The “Moto Action”, which is popular with users of conventional models, is also inherited. For example, twisting the device twice activates the camera, and twisting it further switches to the in-camera. The ability to turn the light on and off by shaking it twice is also useful.
In addition to fingerprint authentication, biometric authentication can also be face authentication using an in-camera. It is a time when masks are required to be worn, and fingerprint authentication will be mainly used, but face authentication is convenient for those who want to release it more quickly. You can also set it to unlock by simply lifting the terminal and turning your face from the screen-off state.
Performance is slight, battery life is equal
There is a clear difference between the processors, the g10 is the entry-level Snapdragon 460 and the g30 is the mid-range Snapdragon 662. There was a certain difference in the benchmark test scores, but I felt that there was not much difference in the actual usability.
Launching and switching apps does not seem to be “quick and light”, but it responds to the extent that you do not feel stress. Unless you’re doing a lot of work, you shouldn’t feel inconvenienced.
