Motorola Moto G60: With its 108MP camera, stock Android experience, and a price tag of Rs 18,000., the Moto G60 is ready to compete with the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max. Is it worth the cost? Find out.
The more the merrier! Humans have the greatest resource: options. Smartphones are no exception. If you don’t have Rs 20,000, there are many tempting options.
Motorola believes the Moto G60 can be a better option than the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, which is currently our favorite smartphone in this category.
Motorola is trying to grab a piece of the market share held by Realme, Samsung, and Xiaomi in this sector with the Moto G60.
The Moto G60 is priced at Rs 17,999, and only has one storage option – which is a bold move in such a competitive market.
The spec sheet can make Redmi Note 10 Pro Max buyers question their choice, especially since you are paying Rs 2,000 less for this Moto.
In an attempt to find out if Motorola has beat Xiaomi in its own game, my main phone was a Frosted Champagne Moto G60. I’ve made some interesting observations.
2020 brought two tragic events to our lives: the COVID-19 altered universe and a miserly Motorola. I miss Moto 2017 and earlier, which was all about trying new designs and materials in order to set new trends.
Motorola has decided to follow the trendsetters and only focus on cost-cutting from 2020. The Moto G60 is no exception.
The Moto G60 feels cheap and boring next to the Realme 8 Pro and Redmi Note 10 Pro.
The bulky plastic unibody design feels cheap and has the same build quality as 2018’s budget phones. It is very smudge-prone and can grab scratches like no tomorrow.
The rear is bland. The only thing that saves it is the rectangular camera hump, which attempts to replicate the design of several Redmi and Realme phones, as well as Samsung.
It doesn’t feel like the power, volume, or Google Assistant keys are made to last. After some rough use, I think you will find yourself in a long queue at the service center.
The 6.8-inch display, which has slim bezels and a camera cutout, is responsible for the 225g bulk.
Although the chin is still a problem, it’s not as severe as the rest of the package.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max or the Realme 8 Pro might be the right choice for you if the style is important to you. The Moto G60 is pale in comparison.
High-resolution displays are hot these days, and Motorola has done its best with the G60. The 6.8-inch display is powered by IPS LCD technology.
It refreshes at 120Hz which is comparable to the best in its class. Although the LCD display isn’t as bright and vibrant as the AMOLED counterparts on Redmi and Realme, it is bright enough to keep display geeks happy. This display looks great with Stock Android.
Although the 21:9 aspect ratio is remarkable, it comes with its own set of limitations.
Not all apps and games have black bars. You will notice a lot of the 16:9 YouTube video cut out when your finger touches it.
It’s obvious that the touch response is slow, especially when playing games. Motorola could address this software issue in the near future.
Motorola uses the same Snapdragon 732G processor that Xiaomi used for the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.
The Moto G60 is able to compete with the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max in terms of performance, especially when it comes to stock Android merits.
The Moto G60 can handle most smartphone tasks on a daily basis. I can easily browse Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, scroll through my emails on Outlook or Gmail and make many calls, both audio and video.
I use the word “peacefully” to mean that I haven’t noticed any annoying hiccups that could ruin my experience. Combining a stock Android 11 and a Snapdragon 732G is a great combination.
The Moto G60 is a great choice for mobile gaming if you enjoy high-fidelity mobile games. The Moto G60 is able to run Call of Duty Mobile at High graphics and Max frame rates. Even after an hour of shooting, it was still at home.
Shadow Fight 4 Arena PVP runs well but has black bars on both sides. CarX Rally runs smoothly at High graphics but at slightly lower frame rates.
Mobile gamers will love the Poco X3 Pro, which is priced at a comparable price and perfectly suited to their needs. The Moto G60 can still go at a fast pace, but it is not slow.
Motorola calls it “near-stock Android”, and it is very easy to use. It is simple to use and there aren’t many third-party apps.
The only exception is the preinstalled Facebook app. Motorola’s customization app offers a limited, but nice theme app to improve the interface.
There’s also the Moto Peek Display, which is a great option for busy days. It displays notification content quickly and in a minimal way.
To help users get the most from this phone, the Moto gestures and the Moto audio tuning app are additional touches.
You should also know that the MotoG60 has a headphone jack as well as a single loudspeaker. The main speaker’s audio quality is excellent, loud, and clear.
However, it is not as good as its Redmi counterpart. Wireless earphones have a problem. It makes a strange sound that won’t go no matter how hard you try. Motorola may be able to fix it.
I tested the Moto G60 using two Jio SIM cards. I was able to get strong network reception. This model has dual-band Wi-Fi for faster speeds.
Although call quality is generally good, I found the earpiece to sound slightly muffled.
Although the Moto G60’s 108-megapixel camera is given a lot of attention, it leaves much to be desired.
The Moto G60’s output is duller than the Mi 10i and Redmi Note 10 Pro Max’s 108-megapixel cameras.
The camera is more natural in daylight and you will get pleasing photos if you have the right lighting.
Although the photos are pixel-binned look great, they lack details. The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max, however, shows distant trees as blurry green bushes. trees.
The 108MP mode increases sharpness, but the overall brightness drops. The Moto G60 struggles to achieve sharpness and detail in low-light situations, but it does try to increase the contrast.
The normal mode produces better results at night than Night Vision mode, which I have never seen on any other phone in my career.
The output of the 8-megapixel ultrawide camera is quite depressing. It blurs details and struggles with exposures in dark conditions. It is not recommended for daylight photography.
It does a decent job in macro mode with high-resolution macro output. However, it still falls short of the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max’s 5-megapixel macro camera. It lacks details and has a washed-out color science.
The 32-megapixel selfie camera does an excellent job taking selfies. The camera can bring out the best features of your face and show off close to natural skin tones. The G60’s artificial bokeh effect is a great tool for subject separation.
This camera will be a good choice for those with thick hair. The camera has trouble capturing details at night or in artificial light. The built-in flash in the front helps to some extent.
The Moto G60’s video recording capabilities are decent. The 4K resolution lacks stabilization, which is a major problem. Overall video quality is not inspiring.
4K footage lacks sharpness, and the colors are muted. The quality of 1080p footage is worse and should be used in daylight.
The Moto G60 is no different. Motorola phones are known for their strong battery performance. Even with a busy schedule, the 6000mAh battery can provide up to two days of power.
The Moto G60 can usually finish the day with more than half of its charge, despite answering numerous calls, texting and checking emails, attending video conferences, browsing social media for 1.5 hours an hour, and some gaming. This is a segment-leading result.
Motorola believes that a 20W charging solution will be fast enough to charge such large batteries. Over the past 10 days, it took me more than 2.5 hours to complete a full charge.
Realme offers 65W chargers for much less expensive phones so this 20W option feels outdated. It causes a lot of inconveniences.
It doesn’t matter if you spend Rs 8,000 on a phone or Rs 80,000, it should feel great and work well as your smart pocket assistant. Despite boasting a slick specification sheet, the Moto G60 fails to achieve this.
It is refreshing to have stock Android instead of the custom Android ROMs that are so jumbled up on rivals.
The battery life is also a plus. I can also confirm your love for the Moto G60 LCD display.
Unfortunately, the rest is not able to match the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max and the remarkable-in-comparison Realme 8 Pro.
At the moment, the Redmi’s performance is not comparable to the 108-megapixel camera.
Both Redmi’s AMOLED displays and Realme phones are brighter than Realme, while the Redmi has a 120Hz refresh rate.
The Redmi and Realme options have glamorous designs and are designed to impress. Motorola took a shortcut with this one.
Motorola must also get rid of the many bugs plaguing the Moto G60. It’s not finished right now.
The Moto G60 feels like a rushed answer to the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max or Realme 8 Pro.
The Moto G60 is difficult to recommend, except for its stock Android experience and reliable battery life.
