Moto G10 vs. Moto G20 vs. Moto G30 | Which Moto G to buy cheap?

Published

on

Motorola flooded Brazilian stores with new Moto Gs in the first half of 2021, with a total of five launches between March and May. Three of them are affordable options and, like it or not, they end up competing with each other. These are the Moto G10, G20 and G30.

I’ve tested them all, and I’ll provide a quick comparison in the next few paragraphs so you can understand the differences and what benefits they may offer. I can tell you that two of these might not be worth much, considering that with a little extra cash you can choose a more complete option and that it should last longer without the crash issues or running out of space.

What would be your bet for the best buy between Moto G10, Moto G20 and Moto G30? Think about it and follow the text to get to know the three models better and to know which one is best to buy today.

Design and construction

The three devices look similar, but have different textures and colors on the backs to distinguish them. All of them have a camera module leaning against the top left with three cameras in a vertical row near the edge. On the side there is an LED flash and below it the fourth sensor and a little below and in the middle the fingerprint reader.

The screen of the three is also the same, with a teardrop-shaped cutout for the front camera and minimal edges, a total of 82.2% utilization. Dimensions and weight are the same, as is the position of the ports, speakers and buttons – including an exclusive Google Assistant. It’s even possible to slip the Moto G10’s cover into the other two and vice versa. The only difference is that the two cheaper ones don’t have a noise-canceling microphone on top, which is in the Moto G30.

Then we come to the differentiation details: the back of the Moto G10 has a wavy texture, and the device can be found in Floral White and Aurora Gray. The Moto G20 is smoother and comes in blue or pink. Finally, the Moto G30 doesn’t have any texture either, but it has a gradient effect on the sides and the color can vary a bit with light reflection. The model is available in the versions Dark Prism and White Lilac.

screen

When we look at the screen, it doesn’t seem to make much difference at first either. All have a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel, HD + resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels (approximate density of 269 dpi) and an aspect ratio of 20: 9. What changes is the refresh rate, which is 60Hz on the Moto G10 and up to 90Hz on both the Moto G20 and Moto G30.

  • Motorcycle G10: 6.5-inch IPS LCD with HD + resolution (720 x 1600 pixels), 60 Hz;
  • Motorcycle G20: 6.5-inch IPS LCD with HD + resolution (720 x 1600 pixels), 90 Hz;
  • Motorcycle G30: 6.5-inch IPS LCD with HD + resolution (720 x 1600 pixels), 90 Hz.

Basically, you get natural colors, a bit of low brightness for street use, and the difference in fluidity of system animation, and one or the other app and game compatible with the higher price of the two more expensive models. They all show videos at the same speed because it is up to the content to offer more frames for display – for example, you cannot force 90 frames per second when recording video at 24 fps.

They are good screens, as one would expect from models for lower price ranges. Even at a low resolution, you can see the content well and the colors are well calibrated.

Cameras

The affordable Moto G-Trio has four sets of cameras with the same configuration: main, super wide, macro and depth. The Moto G20 has the same set as the Moto G10 on the back, with the main part being 48 MP and the rest being 8 MP, 2 MP and 2 MP. The only change in the Moto G30 is the main sensor, which goes up to 64MP.

  • Motorcycle G10: 48 MP (f / 1.7, main screen) + 8 MP (f / 2.2, ultra wide angle) + 2 MP (f / 2.4, macro) + 2 MP (f / 2.4, depth); 8 MP (f / 2.2, front);
  • Motorcycle G20: 48 MP (f / 1.7, main screen) + 8 MP (f / 2.2, ultra wide angle) + 2 MP (f / 2.4, macro) + 2 MP (f / 2.4, depth); 13 MP (f / 2.2, front);
  • Motorcycle G30: 64 MP (f / 1.7, main screen) + 8 MP (f / 2.2, ultra wide angle) + 2 MP (f / 2.4, macro) + 2 MP (f / 2.4, depth); 13 MP (f / 2.2, front).

There is a difference here in the way each set works with the images as they all have a different image processor. But the end result is more or less the same, with an advantage in the level of detail for the Moto G30, which can cope better with difficult scenarios like backlighting or places that alternate between very bright and very dark areas.

Ultra wide angles give good results, usually close to the main lenses, but have the disadvantage of a smaller aperture in the lens. That said, they don’t work very well in dark environments. Macros are not very good at either of them, with difficulty focusing properly and only getting good results in lots of light.

In selfies, the Moto G20 goes after the Moto G30, both with 13 MP, against the 8 MP of the Moto G10. The cheapest model owes a little to this, while the middle one is a few details below the most advanced of the trio – despite the repetition of the sensor.

Processor and memory

Here, too, there are many similarities between the three models: The same amount of RAM for everyone, with 4 GB. When it comes to storage, only the Moto G30 changes, which the other two have two times with 128 GB. They all accept micro SD cards for storage expansion.

  • Motorcycle G10: Snapdragon 460 Octa-Core (8x 1.8 GHz Kryo 240), Adreno 610;
  • Motorcycle G20: Unisoc T700 Octa-Core (2x 1.8 GHz Cortex-A75 + + x 1.8 GHz Cortex-A55), Mali-G52 3EE;
  • Motorcycle G30: Snapdragon 662 Octa-Core (4x 2.0 GHz Kryo 260 Gold + 4x 1.8 GHz Kryo 260 Silver), Adreno 610.

And then there are platforms, often referred to as a processor, even though this is just one of the system-on-a-chip components. According to my tests, largely confirmed by the benchmarks, the Moto G30 is more powerful and stable than the other two. The Moto G20 has raw power, but it lacks the optimization of the games to run smoother.

The Moto G10 is grateful in this regard, considering it’s a Moto G. It copes with simple everyday tasks and can even run some games smoothly, but you can see that it will be “missing” in a short time. The experience won’t be long enough for you to spend money on this device as your primary mobile phone these days.

Drums

Another aspect with a lot in common. The three Moto G have a battery with a capacity of 5,000 mAh and promise up to two days of normal use – with small differences in the total hours estimated by Motorola. Video playback can reach 20 hours on the Moto G10, 11.6 hours on the Moto G20 and 18 hours on the Moto G30. On the other hand, surfing the Internet can take 17 hours, 18.3 hours, and 16 hours, respectively.

Our test of video playback on Netflix – i.e. online – resulted in an estimate of 27 hours for the Moto G20 and G30 and 21 hours for the Moto G10. That is at 50% screen brightness.

Actual everyday use confirms the manufacturer’s own assessment: You can use all three for up to two days without needing an electrical outlet. Of course, it all depends on what apps you have in the background, what tasks you are doing, screen brightness, cellular network strength, and various other factors. But an average usage that is neither very easy (only social networks and messengers) nor demanding (lots of games and videos) should guarantee a good time without resorting to the charger.

Speaking of charging, by the way, the difference in the battery lies in the wall adapter and supports the performance of each one. The Moto G10 and Moto G20 can only handle 10W, so it takes a lot longer than the Moto G30 to fully charge. The most advanced model has a 20W charger.

Moto G10 vs Moto G20 vs Moto G30: which one is it worth?

Considering that you want a good last-generation Moto G without spending too much, the Moto G30 is your best bet. It is the only one of the three that really does what it promises: a good, affordable and reliable cell phone in every respect. And it’s the only one of the three that is expected to receive at least one Android update, while the other two have only guaranteed security updates through 2023.

The Moto G10 is a cheaper option, but there are better alternatives from other generations on the market, such as the Moto G9 Play or even the Moto E7 Plus, which has the same hardware and is much cheaper. Even if you don’t mind updates, these other two options are more interesting.

The Moto G20, on the other hand, is a displaced model that stands between the other two, but it only improves the G10 experience in terms of build quality. You would spend more money to have a phone that doesn’t have an Android update either. It’s not really worth it.

Anyone who still wants to buy one of the other two models will not take any bad experiences home with them. Both the Moto G10 and Moto G20 are pretty decent in 2021, but the Moto G30 gives you better value for money and a longer lifespan without any problems. The choice is yours, this comparison is only intended to provide you with the tools to do so with awareness.

Black Adam | Teaser makes the hero’s absurd level of power clear

Published

on

By

As promised, the long-awaited black adam finally showed up. After months of promises and little teasers from actor Dwayne Johnson, Warner Bros. released a short excerpt that reveals a little of what we can expect from the character on his big screen – including his final appearance, which with what remains a mystery until then.

According to Johnson, the film is still in post-production so there wasn’t much to show. Still, a teaser was presented with what appears to be the beginning of the plot. In the scene we see a group of explorers arriving at the antihero’s tomb in Kahndaq, which makes him wake up.

So in about a minute we’ll see Black Adam appear in front of the group in all his size and height, and with just one touch dissolve a man. Plus, it’s completely invulnerable to bullets and fast enough to intercept a shot in midair as if it were nothing. In other words, he’s able to do anything Superman can do, but without the moral constraints of the Man of Steel.

Visually, Black Adam looks like an even darker version of Shazam – which makes perfect sense since the character was originally born as the hero’s enemy and his powers have the same origin – with the iconic breast stud. The big difference is that the black costume has some embossed details that are very reminiscent of Egyptian inscriptions or something similar.

Also, the hood prevents us from seeing if The Rock’s face has any decorations. On the other hand, it’s pretty clear that the actor is huge and that he wasn’t kidding when he said that his muscles have never been as big as this time around. When it came to showing his strength, he was successful.

Justice Society and Khandaq

Warner also released another teaser during the DC Fandome that mixes backstage scenes, concept art, and some pre-made scenes from the film that add a little bigger dimension to what’s to come. One example of this is that there are drawings that show what the kingdom of Khandaq, the birthplace of Black Adam, will look like, and even glimpses of his life before he became the antihero presented to us, something in between a gladiator and a monarch.

However, what stands out the most about this miniclip is the involvement of the Justice Society, the group of heroes who will cross paths with Black Adam in the film. And while we don’t have the final looks of Hawksbill (Aldis Hodge), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), Atom Crusher (Noah Centineo), and Lord Fate (Pierce Brosnan), the logo of each of those heroes has already been revealed and set the stage for revelation that is still on the way.

The highlight here is on Brosnan himself. Aside from making it very clear that he wasn’t even 10 years James Bond in the franchise 007 were as great as anything Warner builds with black adam, we have a short scene of your character in the film that gives us a clue of what is going to happen.

Lord Fate appears to be responsible for awakening the powers of Isis (Image: Reproduction / Warner Bros.)

In the excerpt, Mr. Fate appears and reads Adrianna Tomaz (Sarah Shahi) who many believe is the reincarnation of Isis, the protagonist’s wife. If what is suggested is correct, it will be Brosnan’s character who will be responsible for awakening the girl’s powers and bringing the heroine into the modern age – possibly to curb Black Adam’s anger.

With all of this in mind, fans have nothing to complain about with the news that will be presented during the DC Fandome. Although everything is still very raw, the long-awaited feature has received weighty news that is a good illustration of what the film is supposed to present in terms of power scale, tone, and special guest appearances. Now just wait until July 29th, 2022 to see what black adam reserve us.

The Galaxy S22 line has released more renders with new looks and dimensions

Published

on

By

The Galaxy S22 range has been the focus of several rumors in recent weeks, particularly due to a new look for the Galaxy S22 Ultra and smaller dimensions for the other two models in the series, the Galaxy S22 and the Galaxy S22 Plus. Recently released new images confirm this information through 3D renderings and CAD drawn designs.

Images from the LetsGoDigital portal illustrate how the most expensive smartphone in the line should be. Contrary to previous rumors, the S22 Ultra is not said to have a module that connects all of the rear view cameras, and therefore the lenses must be attached directly to the rear cover. The change should only be aesthetic, because the placement of all cameras, sensors and flash remains the same as with the Galaxy S21 Ultra. The information has been verified through the popular @ UniverseIce profile.

On the front, the Galaxy S22 Ultra should have a display with a heavily curved aspect on the sides, a feature that was toned down in previous generations of the phone. The selfies camera will remain in a hole in the center of the top of the screen with the speaker near the top.

One of the most important innovations of the S22 Ultra is the implementation of a special compartment for the S Pen stylus in order to attract fans of the Note line, which has not been updated since 2020. FrontTron Twitter profile, the new input is on the bottom of the device, closest to the left corner and near the lower speaker, USB-C input and microphone.

The @ FrontTron release also confirmed the dimensions of all devices on the line, with differences in the size of the three smartphones. The Galaxy S22 will be 145 x 70 x 7 mm (compared to 151 x 71 x 7 mm on the Galaxy S21), while the S22 Plus will be 157 x 75 x 7 mm (compared to 161 x 75 x 7 mm on the Galaxy) has S21 Plus) and the S22 Ultra with 163 x 77 x 9 mm (vs. 165 x 75 x 9 mm for the Galaxy S21 Ultra).

While the change in numbers seems subtle, it could mean relevant changes in the ergonomics of the devices, with a larger footprint and a screen ratio between 19.3: 9 and 19.5: 9 – for comparison purposes, the S21 range has a 20: 9 -Relationship. On the front, the S22 and S22 Plus should stay with symmetrical edges, but they may be significantly thinner.

With the new size, some changes are to be made in the battery aspect. The capacity of the S22 will be reduced from 4,000 mAh to 3,700 mAh, while that of the S22 Plus will be increased from 4,800 mAh to 4,500 mAh – only the S22 Ultra will remain with the same 5,000 mAh energy tank.

There’s no official date for the launch of the Galaxy S22 range yet, but it is possible that it will be released in January 2022, about a year after the S21 range was launched.
