Here's how the Moto G60 compares to the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max in terms of weight, specs, and more in India.
The Moto G60 was released in India on Tuesday for Rs 17,999.
Under Rs 20,000, the phone competes with the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.
The Moto G60 and the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max have a number of similarities.
In India, Motorola has just released the Moto G60 and Moto G40 Fusion. Both systems come with strong hardware at a reasonable price. The Moto G60 ticks all the boxes for a low-cost smartphone with mid-range capabilities. It's one of the few phones in this price range that can compete with the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max. After all, the phone and the phone have a number in common. Is the Moto G60, however, capable of outperforming Xiaomi's value king? Let's see what our in-depth comparison of the Moto G60 and the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max reveals.
Prices of the Moto G60 and the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max in India:
The Moto G60 is priced at Rs 17,999 in India for the version with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM. A Redmi Note 10 Pro Max with the same memory and storage specifications would set you back Rs 19,990. As a result, the Moto G60 is a great option for anyone on a tight budget. However, the phone falls short in a few main areas, which we'll discuss further down.
Specifications of the Moto G60 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro Max:
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max and the Moto G60 are almost similar in terms of hardware. The Snapdragon 732G chipset is used in both smartphones. Both phones can, on paper, work similarly under synthetic loads. However, the actual mileage can vary, since it is primarily dependent on the applications that are used. The Moto G60, on the other hand, has a much larger 6,000mAh battery that allows 20W rapid charging. The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max has a smaller 5,000mAh battery, but it compensates by encouraging users to charge it at a faster rate of 33W. The Moto G60 has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, while the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Finally, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max has an IR Blaster, which comes in handy if you have a lot of gadgets that can be controlled remotely.
Here's when the Moto G60's compromises become evident. While both smartphones have a 120Hz refresh rate, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max has a 6.67-inch AMOLED display, while the Moto G60 has a 6.8-inch IPS LCD display. Although an LCD panel has no inherent flaws, AMOLED screens typically replicate colour better and allow for greater immersion in video content. However, the colour calibration on the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max isn't great, so you may be better off with the Moto G60 in some situations.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max and Moto G60 have one thing in common once again: a 108MP main camera sensor. With an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 5MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max has a better supporting cast. The Moto G60 foregoes the macro lens in favour of an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. In comparison to the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max's 16MP selfie sensor, the Moto G60 has a larger 32MP selfie camera lens. The number of megapixels on a smartphone camera does not dictate how well it can do in the real world.
Both the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max and the Moto G60 come pre-installed with Android 11. The former, on the other hand, comes with MIUI 12, which is infamous for bloatware and on-device advertising. The Moto G60, on the other hand, comes with a stock Android experience that is almost uncustomizable. However, MIUI has a slew of features that are yet to find their way into Stock Android. Software updates for the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max are also released on a daily basis. However, we can't say the same for the Moto G60, as Motorola's track record in this area is mixed.
The decision on the Moto G60 and the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max:
This time, Motorola has put up a real fight against Redmi. The Redmi Note 10 Pro Max set a high bar for what an inexpensive smartphone can be, and the Moto G60 lives up to that in almost every way. Yes, there are some sacrifices along the way, but that's to be expected given that the Moto G60 is marginally less expensive. The Moto G60 is an excellent choice if you don't mind the LCD panel and want to save some money. However, if you're looking for the best smartphone under Rs 20,000, the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max is still the best choice.
