Motorola has launched the Moto E32s budget smartphone in the Indian market with a starting price of Rs 9,299 for the base variant. This affordable device features a high refresh rate display, powered by an octa-core processor and triple rear cameras. The Moto E series has been around for many years, and now the company hopes to compete with other budget smartphones from brands like Infinix, Redmi and more. Over here, we are taking a closer look at the new Moto E32s smartphone and how it compares in terms of design, hardware, and camera with the Infinix Hot 12 Play and the Redmi 10A smartphone.
Moto E32s vs Infinix Hot 12 Play vs Redmi 10A: Price in India
The Moto E32s India price starts at Rs 9,299 for the base variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The 4GB RAM and 64GB option costs Rs 9,999. Interestingly, the company has introduced a discounted price for its initial sale that will start at Rs 8,999. The phone will be available on Flipkart, Reliance Digital, and Jio Mart starting from June 6th.
The Infinix Hot 12 Play price in India is Rs 8,499 and the phone comes with a single variant of 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. The handset is available for purchase from Flipkart. Lastly, we have Redmi 10A that is priced at Rs 8,499 for 3GB + 32GB model and Rs 9,499 for 4GB + 64GB option. The handset can be purchased from Amazon and Mi.com
Moto E32s vs Infinix Hot 12 Play vs Redmi 10A: Design
Moto E32s manage to appeal with its design. Motorola has incorporated a glass-like finish at the back which makes it look elegant, something we can’t say for most budget smartphones in the market. It features a punch-hole cutout on the screen, where you have the front camera. Moto E32s come equipped with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The overall design is simple but that works for us.
Compared to this, Infinix Hot 12 Play is the ideal budget phone with a plastic back panel, and frame on the sides. The fingerprint sensor is at the back, the same is the case with the Redmi 10A. Speaking of which, the Redmi 10A design is mostly plain-ish, but the rear camera module looks busy but not very appealing.
Moto E32s vs Infinix Hot 12 Play vs Redmi 10A: Display
Moto E32s sports a 6.5-inch HD+ display that offers 720×1600 pixels, and supports a 90Hz refresh rate. The Infinix Hot 12 Play features a bigger 6.82-inch HD+ display that gives you 720×1612 pixels and also supports a 90Hz refresh rate. Compared to these two, Redmi 10A gets a 6.53-inch HD+ display with 720×1600 but misses out on high refresh rate support. In terms of the screen-to-body ratio, Moto E32s has 82.9 per cent, Infinix Hot 12 Play offers 84.5 per cent and the Redmi 10A comes with 81 per cent. Brightness is unlikely to be the core strength of the display on these phones.
Moto E32s vs Infinix Hot 12 Play vs Redmi 10A: Performance
Motorola has powered the new Moto E32s with an octa-core MediaTek Helio G37 chipset, which comes paired with 3GB and 4GB RAM. You get 32GB and 64GB storage which can be expanded further. Infinix Hot 12 Play gets a Unisoc T610 processor with 4GB and 6GB as the RAM options, which offer 64GB and 128GB storage, respectively.
And the Redmi 10A is powered by the older MediaTek Helio G25 processor with 3GB, 4GB and 6GB RAM options. Going by the history of these chipsets, it is fair to say that the Moto E32s is likely to outshine the other two with its performance, but nothing remarkable.
In terms of the software, Moto E32s gets Android 12 out of the box, and so does Infinix Hot 12 Play. Redmi 10A is still running on the Android 11 version which puts it at the bottom of the list for us.
Moto E32s vs Infinix Hot 12 Play vs Redmi 10A: Cameras
Motorola is also pushing the sensor count in the budget segment with the Moto E32s, which has a triple rear camera setup of 16MP + 2MP + 2MP cameras. Infinix Hot 12 Play gives you a dual rear camera unit with a 13MP and a QVGA sensor, while Redmi 10A only has a single 13MP camera at the back. At the front, Moto E32s carry an 8MP selfie camera, and so does the Hot 12 Play, but Redmi 10A only has a 5MP camera. More sensors do not always mean better quality but in this case, Moto E32s has a clear advantage over the other two.
Moto E32s vs Infinix Hot 12 Play vs Redmi 10A: Battery
Next, we take a look at the battery size and the charging support offered by these phones. Moto E32s come loaded with a 5000mAh battery that supports 15W charging speed via the USB Type C port. Infinix Hot 12 Play and Redmi 10A carry a 6000mAh with a USB Type C port and a 5000mAh battery unit with a microUSB 2.0 port, respectively and both give you regular charging speed.
Moto E32s vs Infinix Hot 12 Play vs Redmi 10A: Verdict
After going through all the features, the screen quality offered and even the design of these three phones, it is easy to see that the Moto E32s is a definite upgrade on the other two smartphones in question from Infinix and Redmi. For the price, Moto E32s is giving you better value and we recommend you to pick it over the other two brands.
