Motorola Moto G30 vs. Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro: comparison of mid-range Android smartphones


The Xiaomi brand has accustomed us to the excellent relationship between price and performance.

Motorola Moto G30

A careful design made of resistant polycarbonate, dimensions of 165.22 x 75.73 x 9.14 mm for a weight of 197 grams are the credentials for the new Moto G30. A smartphone features a 6.5-inch 90 Hz IPS display and a resolution of 1,600 x 720 pixels (269 PPI) that offers a good representation of images even if it is not exceptionally bright.

Good technical equipment with SoC Snapdragon 662 4G LTE flanked by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory expandable via microSD. The good news is that the G30 is a dual SIM with a three-seat slide, so we won’t have to sacrifice a SIM to expand the memory.

Then we have 802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, headphone jack, and USB-C port. Autonomy is excellent thanks to the powerful 5,000 mAh battery. The operating system is Android 11.

Finally, let’s move on to the cameras section, where we find a 13-megapixel front and a rear area with four cameras: the primary 64-megapixel, the 118-degree 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle, a 2-megapixel macro, and the classic 2-megapixel support for portraits.

The quality of the photos is excellent in good lighting conditions. It reduces as the light goes down but remains above average for a smartphone of this price. Good videos are recorded at full HD at 60 fps, although you feel the lack of an optical stabilizer in low light. Price: 239.90 euros.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro


The Xiaomi brand has accustomed us to the excellent relationship between price and performance. And this is one of the reasons why the Asian brand has become so popular.

The Pro model of the tenth generation of smartphones from the Redmi Note family has exceeded expectations so much that the model with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage seems to belong to a higher price range.

The design is studied in detail with the glass back cover that gives a nice feeling to the touch. Its dimensions are 164 × 76.5 × 8.1 mm for a weight of 193 g. The rounded edges provide a comfortable grip and frame a premium quality display.

It is a 6.67-inch 120 Hz AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,800 pixels. At its heart beats a Snapdragon 732G SoC with discrete performance and 4G LTE connectivity with dual SIM + microSD. The battery with significant autonomy is 5000 mAh, while as an operating system, we find MIUI 12 based on Android 11.

The photographic sector is good with a 16-megapixel front sensor that does its job worthily and a rear quad-cam with a 108-megapixel primary camera, a 118-inch 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera, to conclude a 5-megapixel macro and a supported camera for 2-megapixel portraits.

The image quality is excellent in daytime photos, good in those with little light as long as you activate the night mode and remember that there is no stabilized camera available. Price: 329 euros.
