Let's come to our topic Motorola G54 5G.

Motorola G54 5G

  7. Battery - 6000 mAh with 33W Turbo Power Charger
  8. Weight - 400g
  9. OS - Android 13.0


    From the usage of this phone, the processor is excellent along with its battery 6000 mAh battery it does wonders on the performance side. So you don't need to worry about gaming at all as well as some hardcore usages. The display and Speaker are also quite good and match up with the performance. 

The negative side of the smartphone is the connectivity range with wifi and the changing network. Even if it is a 5G phone in some places you won't get 5G connectivity so the smartphone needs to switch to 4G or lower bands automatically. But in G53 5G we need to change the network manually. A slight heating issue is there but it is manageable. The camera is good but due to its OIS function, it takes more time to capture the frame than a normal camera which you can ignore for the better camera at this price range.

    POCO, formally a sub-brand of Xiaomi, became a mainstream company in 2020 and has operated since as a completely Independent company. The mobile phone POCO F1 is a flagship mobile of the manufacturer with serious specifications that other manufacturers can't provide to its customers at this price point.



  1. Processor - Qualcomm Flagship Snapdragon 845 - Octa-core - 2.8Ghz
  2. Back Camera - 12MP + 5MP Dual Pixel AI dual camera setup
  3. RAM - 6GB
  4. Front Camera - 20MP HD Camera

    As a flagship smartphone, the phone comes with top-notch specifications at its price segment with the Qualcomm processor it takes your gaming experience on a smooth path along with the 4000 mAh battery with hard core use it can stand for the whole day. The speaker is an addon that gives a good sound effect along with the Full HD+ display it proves like a flagship smartphone with an additional Gorilla Glass protection for a screen at this price point. If you are someone who worries about face recognition, then no worry the face recognition of POCO F1 just recognizes your face even in low lights.

    The Drawback of POCO F1 is only the material that is used for the outer covers. They are not metal they are durable Polycarbonate, yes they are durable but they can replace metal that gives the phone which gives a premium feel. But POCO has done a good job of making it affordable so this cost-cutting is ok and acceptable. Another issue is slight heating which is manageable during hard-core usage like gaming.

Motorola G82 5G

    We talked a lot about Motorola in our Motorola G54 5G. So here, Let's dive into the review of Motorola G82.

Motorola G82 5G

  1. RAM - 8GB
  2. Storage - 128GB - Expandable to 1TB(micro SD)
  3. Display - 16.76cm or 6.6inch Full HD+ - pOLED - Gorilla Glass Protected
  4. Back Camera - 50MP + 8MP + 2MP - Optical Image Stabilization with depth sensor and Ultra-wide camera
  5. Front Camera - 16MP
  6. Battery - 5000mAh with fast charging
  7. Processor - Qualcomm Snapdragon 695
  8. Android - 12.0
  9. Weight - 400g

Motorola G82 5G

    First the looks, it is a head turner with three cameras on its back which looks classy. Looks or appearance are individual preferences so, it is up to you to decide on that. The three cameras not only look classy but also perform well in daytime along with the Optical Image Stabilization(OIS) which helps you to correct the shakes that happen in images but for this, you need to spare some time because the OIS function takes little bit longer time than a normal camera to capture you the best picture. 

    The front camera is not up to the mark you will get an average image for selfies. Both the cameras were not night owls so they didn't perform well in Night or in Low light. When it comes to Network it nailed it with its Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The dual Speakers add an advantage to the Display if you are using the mobile for watching your favorite movie or games.

     Battery Stand-by for the whole day under normal usage with 55 - 50% remaining to get extracted. So I would say it can be used sight hard core during the day. The Fingerprinter scanner works super fast for your urgent needs. The only drawback with the phone is that some users report occasional green lines in their mobile phones, but I haven't seen one in mine. But it's no worry about it since it is occasional when you consider the value for money quotient.

Rating Score
  • Camera - 3.4/5
  • Battery - 4.3/5
  • Display - 4.4/5
  • Performance - 4/5
So for whom this Smartphone:
    If you are a movie lover go for it. If you are expecting performance go for it. If you want a good back camera go for it. If you take more selfies look for something else. If you take night photos look for something else.

Realme XT

    On using this smartphone we came to the conclusion that the camera was its strongest point. Both Front and the rear. The manufacturer focused more on the camera's ability. If you are a selfie lover you will definitely like this phone. The Build quality is superb at this price point along with the Display and the Processor it has you can easily cover up games and movies with easy. Fast charging adds up the score of this phone, even though the battery drain is faster than other mobiles of this category it doing its job very nicely with a stand-by of 1 day or so for normal usage. For Hardcore usage, you need to have your charger backup with you. 

    Another Plus point of this smartphone is its network connectivity, it has very good connectivity but sadly it's a value-for-money phone with 4G connectivity, not 5G. Another drawback of this smartphone is that the software is getting rectified with the latest update. The Manufacturer made a good camera but it projects outside the body of the phone so placing the phone on the table without a back case or cover will damage the camera's outer surface. So buy a back case along with this smartphone.

Rating Score
  • Camera  - 4.4/5
  • Battery - 4.2/5
  • Display - 4.5/5
  • Performance - 4.2/5
So for whom this Smartphone:

    If you are a selfie lover go for it. If you are a person who takes a lot of pictures go for it. If you are looking for Hard core usage but don't bother about battery go for it, if battery along with hard core usage like games see for some other smartphone. If you are a movie lover go for it.
