Building some devices on razor-thin margins, the Motorola G series has lasted a long time. Since the debut of the original Moto G, Motorola has maintained its dominance in the low-budget price range, giving us a Moto G10 victory lap. Not to mention, many similarly priced rivals have vanished in this period. Even by Moto G standards, the Moto G10 is uncomfortably cheap. And as it seems, Motorola has managed to manufacture a good phone for a price less than that of the Moto G9 Play. This article will elaborate on all the details of that Motorola release.
Key Features of Motorola Moto G10
The Moto G10 appears to have a large part of its DNA in common with that of the G9 series. However, this time, Motorola has attempted something a bit different with the shell. It has added 29 textured waves at the back. Unlike every other phone, the handset’s trash disposal information is printed on the bottom of the phone near the USB charging connection rather than on the back.
The fingerprint scanner is placed in the circular Motorola logo on the phone’s back, while the four cameras are housed within a rectangular hump in the upper left-hand corner, just like the G9 series. The phone comes in two color variants- Aurora Grey and Sakura Pearl.
The display on the Moto G10 isn’t going to blow you away in many aspects. But it’s just about decent enough for movie watching and web browsing. However, it’s low resolution (720 x 1600 pixels), lacks HDR capability, and is pretty dim.
In terms of canvas size, it’s large and big, measuring 6.5 inches from corner to corner. So it’ll suffice for your video streaming apps. Though the bottom chin is a bit wide, its bezels are slim. And, there’s a teardrop -camera-notch on top of the screen that houses the selfie camera.
The screen comes with a low refresh rate of 60Hz. It’s a serious step down if you’re accustomed to the 90Hz or 120Hz refresh rates offered by many standard phones on the market.
On the front side, the phone sports an 8MP selfie camera. And on the back side, there’s a quad-camera series featuring combination of a 48MP wide sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor.
The phone’s photo and video-taking capabilities are on pace with what you’d expect from a phone with this price tag. In other words, it captures some good photos in good light but struggles when it comes to difficult photographs in low light or with moving subjects. The phone’s slower internal components are seen in the interface, which can be fairly sluggish at times and has a shutter speed that isn’t up to par with the best in the market.
The Moto G10 has a night mode that increases brightness and detail if you can keep the phone steady for a few seconds longer. It works fine, and it’s safe to say that the Moto G10 can take some passable night images – even if you lose a lot of detail and clarity in low light.
Hardware and Performance
The Moto G10 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 CPU powered by 4GB RAM. You shouldn’t expect too much efficiency from this low-end processor in terms of performance.
The phone’s low-level specs are reflected in Geekbench’s 5 scores of 241 (single-core), 1094 (multi-core), and 267 (OpenCL), which are exceeded by the ancestor Moto G9 Play. T can be said that G10 is quite a sluggish phone.
The Moto G10 has been tested with a couple of pretty demanding racing games, and its performance was admirable. The games played smoothly, though frame rates and loading windows were occasionally choppy. Casual games will run smoothly on the device, but if you’re serious about Android gaming, you can look for alternative gaming-centric devices.
Battery Capacity and The Charger
The Moto G10’s 5,000mAh battery does an admirable job of staying between charges, and the device can survive a couple of days of regular use with its battery capacity.
There’s no wireless charging here, as is typical of budget phones. And, its wired charging speed is limited to 10W, which is rather low even for an entry-level phone nowadays. To get fully charged the phone would take several hours. At the very least, Motorola has chosen USB-C for the charging port, which is a welcome respite.

Moto G10 Price in Bangladesh
The phone is currently available only in one variant in Bangladesh. This variant has 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The official price of the Motorola Moto G10 is BDT 15,599.
Overall, Motorola Moto G10 offers a good package with a standard design, display, battery, camera, as well as brand value. Motorola’s take on Android is also commendable, and the phone runs Android 11 as well, which is more than most other manufacturers’ offers.
The Moto G10’s camera will do the job and get you some good photographs. However, if you want photographs that really stand out, you’ll have to spend a little more money.
The Moto G10’s strongest selling point is probably its extremely low price. You can hardly find a good package in this price range
On the downside, Moto G10 lacks 5G connectivity, and its internal specifications result in a mediocre software experience. Under this price range we have seen better performance in the competitor phones. When it comes to this phone, it’s best to stick to the essentials.
