Motorola Moto G10 Power Review

The Moto G10 Power is Motorola’s new entry into the Moto G lineup in the sub-Rs 10,000 price range. It has reasonable specifications for the asking price of Rs 9,999. Its biggest bet, however, is in software. With the Moto G10 Power, the company includes ThinkShield for Android security and promises two years of security updates. ThinkShield provides end-to-end mobile security and privacy solutions that protect at multiple levels, beginning with supply chain security, hardware security, operating system security, and system security. This is a one-of-a-kind security solution that no other smartphone manufacturer provides, at least not yet.

Price and availability of the Moto G10 Power

The Moto G10 Power is priced at Rs 9,999 and is available on Flipkart in a 4+64GB variant. The device is available in two colours: Aurora Gray and Breeze Blue. It is also worth noting that the Moto G10 Power is an India-only variant, with a larger 6,000mAh battery and slightly faster 15W charging capabilities than the Moto G10.

Design

The Moto G10 Power has a decent design that is not overly flashy. The back of the phone has a texture pattern design that is similar to the WD MyPassport Hard drive design language. Of course, the back is made of plastic, but Motorola has done a good job with the ridged surface, making it comfortable to hold and easy to grip. Display

 

In terms of canvas size, it has a 6.5-inch LCD panel that is adequate for your video streaming apps. The bezels are relatively thin, though the bottom chin is rather large; and there’s a teardrop notch at the top of the screen that houses the selfie camera.

Performance

In terms of real-world performance, the Moto G10 Power is a fairly decent performer thanks to Moto’s clean stock Android experience. The performance was superior to that of the Narzo 20A and Redmi 9 Power, both of which are in the same price range and are powered by Snapdragon 665 and Snapdragon 662, respectively.

Software

The Moto G10 Power, like the rest of the Motorola phones, runs a near-stock version of Android. This is also Motorola’s first phone to ship with the Android 11 operating system. There are only 26 pre-installed apps, primarily the Google suite and a couple of Motorola apps. The only other app that comes with the device is Facebook, which can also be uninstalled.

After using phones from Redmi, Realme, and Poco in the past, it was refreshing to see a phone with so few apps. There are no spammy push notifications thanks to the pure stock Android experience. We like the approach taken with the Moto G10 Power and hope they stick with it in the future.
