The mid-range this year has been hit hard by 5G connectivity, which has been synonymous with the most advanced mobile phones in this range, and which have reached the market at a fairly tight price. This is the case of the TCL 10 5G and Motorola Moto G 5G Plus , which have this connectivity as a great claim.
Both TCL and Motorola have succeeded in launching more affordable models with 5G connectivity in their ranges this year. And it is these models that have released this connectivity in their mid-range, very complete mobiles that have a fairly reasonable price for what they offer.
Screen and dimensions
The new TCL terminal comes with a 6.53-inch screen with Full HD + resolution and that also has HDR10. For its part, the Motorola is somewhat larger, 6.7 inches with Full HD + resolution and a refresh rate of 90Hz , as well as HDR10 as well.
Both screens have a hole in the screen for the selfie camera, double in the case of the Motorola . On the dimensions and weight, the TCL is somewhat more compact, but a little heavier, with dimensions of 163.7 x 76.6 x 9 mm and weight of 210 grams. While the Motorola has a size of 168 x 74 x 9 mm and a weight of 207 grams.
In this aspect, they are similar mobiles, since the two phones have the Snapdragon 765G processor , which has been the one that has brought connectivity to mid-range mobiles this year.
Regarding the RAM both have up to 6GB, while the internal storage is up to 128GB expandable by microSD cards, so there is enough equality between both terminals.
Both mobiles have quad cameras behind , although with different sensors. The TCL has a 64-megapixel main, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel macro, and 2-megapixel deep. In the case of Motorola there are 48 megapixel sensors, 8 megapixel ultra wide angle, 5 megapixel macro and 2 megapixel depth.
Therefore, except for the main sensor, with a higher resolution in the TCL, the configuration is the same. Where there are differences is in the rear camera. Since in the case of the TCL we have one inside the 16 megapixel screen, and in the Motorola it is double, with 16 and 8 megapixel sensors . In addition, it has a striking design, since it is not the usual pill of these cameras, but with two holes.
Battery, connectivity and software
In this section, both stand out for good batteries, 4500mAh for the TCL 10 5G and 5000mAh for the Motorola Moto G 5G Plus.
The TCL has 18W fast charging and the Motorola 20W. Both have Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C connector, FM Radio, as well as NFC for making mobile payments. The fingerprint reader is on the back on the TCL and on the side on the Motorola. Both have Android 10 as an operating system.
Price and conclusion
The truth is that we are facing two quite similar mobiles in many respects, even in price. Since the official price of both is 399 euros . Now the Motorola is even about 20 euros cheaper. On the other hand, the TCL is difficult to find in stores today.
With these very similar prices, we lean towards the Motorola. Simply because it has a larger screen, a punch-hole dual selfie camera, and a somewhat more capable battery. Otherwise they are very similar mobiles that will give us an almost identical result on a day-to-day basis, since the differences are basically in those details.
