Motorola has expanded its smartphone portfolio with the launch of its most awaited handset, the Moto G40 Fusion, in India. The latest smartphone falls under the mid-range price segment with an array of features like a long-lasting battery, punch-hole cutout design, Snapdragon chipset, and a lot more. In this price segment, the smartphone goes directly up against Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 10 Pro.
It’s quite interesting to see that the smartphones from both brands offer almost the same specifications under the same price point, which increases confusion among the buyers. But, which one should you buy? Should it be G40 Fusion? Or Redmi Note 10 Pro? Don’t worry we got you back. Here are 6 reasons why Moto G40 Fusion is better than Redmi Note 10 Pro and 6 reasons why Redmi Note 10 Pro makes more sense.
6 Reasons Why Moto G40 Fusion is Better Than Redmi Note 10 Pro
The first and foremost thing, the Moto G40 Fusion is cheaper than Redmi Note 10 Pro. The G40 comes with a starting price of Rs 13,999 for 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, while the 6GB RAM +128GB storage model is up for grabs at Rs 15,999. On the other hand, the Redmi Note 10 Pro comes with a starting price of Rs 15,999 for the 6GB RAM + 64GB option. This means you are getting a better value-for-money proposition with the Moto G40 Fusion as compared to the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
Motorola smartphones have been always praised for their stock Android experience and the same is true with this smartphone. The Moto G40 Fusion runs on stock Android 11 OS, which offers a clean experience. The Note 10 Pro runs on MIUI 12 based Android 11. The user interface is heavily customised and comes with some noticeable amount of bloatware.
The Moto G40 Fusion comes with a massive 6,000mAh battery, while the Redmi Note 10 Pro offers a 5,020mAh battery. The answer is quite clear here. The Moto smartphone gives you better battery backup than the Redmi phone, meaning that it will last slightly longer than the Note 10 Pro.
The Moto G40 Fusion features a 16-megapixel camera sensor for selfies and video calls that sits underneath the punch-hole camera cutout design. The Redmi Note 10 Pro also comes with a 16-megapixel in-display camera sensor for selfie and video calls. Both the camera specifications seem to be similar on papers, but the Moto G40 Fusion outperforms the selfie camera of the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
Autofocus in Ultrawide
The Moto G40 Fusion comes with a 64MP quad-camera setup at the back. The ultra-wide lens doubles up as a macro camera and offers an auto-focus feature at the ultra-wide angle. The Redmi Note 10 Pro features a 64-megapixel primary camera setup
The Redmi Note 10 Pro on the rear packs a 64-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.9 aperture accompanied by an 8-megapixel camera, a 5-megapixel camera, and a 2-megapixel camera sensor along with an LED flash. The rear camera setup has autofocus. On papers, the specifications look similar but it seems that the autofocus of the Moto G40 Fusion performs better when pitted against the Note 10 Pro.
6 Reasons Why Moto G40 Fusion is Not Better Than Redmi Note 10 Pro
Here’s why the Redmi Note 10 Pro appears to be a better device when compared to the G40 Fusion.
Premium Glass design
The Moto G40 Fusion features a plastic finish with round edges and vertical lining patterns. The plastic back does not give a rich and premium feel. This is where the Redmi Note 10 Pro shines. The handset comes with a premium glass design with curves at the sides which makes it more premium and slicker compared to the newly launched Moto G40 Fusion.
Better camera performance
The second reason where the Redmi Note 10 Pro beats the Moto G40 Fusion is the camera part. We have pitted the Moto G40 Fusion camera against the Redmi Note 10 Pro and found out that the camera performance of the Note 10 Pro is much better than the newly launched Moto G40 Fusion. You will get to know more details about the camera performance in our detailed review of the device.
The Moto G40 Fusion features a 6.8-inch Full HD+ LCD Display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a punch-hole cutout design to make room for the selfie camera. On the other hands, the Redmi Note 10 Pro flaunts a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED Display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels with a pixel density of 395ppi to ensure high definition quality. The AMOLED display at this price point is probably one of the best things Redmi has given with its Note 10 series. The AMOLED screen is any day better than an LCD panel and this can be a decent reason to opt for the Redmi Note 10 Pro and ditch the Moto G40 Fusion.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro features powerful stereo speakers which deliver an impressive audio quality. While the newly launched Moto G40 Fusion lacks stereo speakers and didn’t overpower the quality of the Redmi Note 10 Pro.
Super Macro Camera
The one reason why you should consider the Redmi Note 10 Pro instead of Moto G40 Fusion is the macro lens available in the former. The Redmi Note 10 Pro offers a 5-megapixel tele-macro sensor, which clicks some stunning macro shots. The Moto G40 Fusion misses out on this feature, which might be disappointing for many buyers.
The Redmi Note 10 Pro comes with a 33W fast charging support which is much better than a 20W charging of the Moto G40 Fusion. Redmi Note 10 Pro also packs a fast charger in the retail box, while the Moto G40 fusion lacks that too.
