Motorola’s latest Moto G40 Fusion and Moto G60 are excellent phones in the under ₹ 20000 range. Yes there are flaws but both tick the right boxes and provide excellent value for your money. The best part is obviously the stock Android experience. Yes it is not complete stock Android but the gap is negligible. The usual Motorola gestures like the shake to open flashlight is really very very useful.
Now one may ask why I am using two phones in the same bracket. Well the names suggest similarities but actually except for the primary camera on both front and back the Moto G40 Fusion and the Moto G60 are identical.
Remember the MotorolaOneFusion+.It was one of my favourite picks in the price range.Lets hope the Moto G40 Fusion lives up to that expectation. Now let’s have a fleeting look at the specs sheet.
MOTO G40 FUSION
Display– 6.8″ IPS LCD, HDR10,1080×2460p resolution, 120Hz refresh rate
OS– Android 11
Chipset– Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G
Rear Camera – 64MP wide,8MP ultrawide +macro,2MP depth
Front Camera – 16MP
Battery- 6000mAh,20W fast charging
Colours – Dynamic Grey, Frosted Champagne
The Moto G60 has a 108MP primary camera sensor on the back and the selfie shooter is 32MP. It comes only in one variant of 6GB/128GB which costs ₹17999.Rest all specifications are identical to that of the Moto G40 Fusion.
Both the phones come in a plastic back and frame and is water repellant in design.As I have said earlier this means that the occasional splashes of water won’t harm your phone.In regards to looks the Moto G40 Fusion and Moto G60 both are pretty good though the weight could have been a little lighter.The display with its high refresh rate is crisp but still it is IPS LCD and one longs for an Amoled display. Audio is fine and 3.5mm audio jack is present.
In terms of performance the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G is apt for the price range.The best part which is the best part of every Motorola phones is the Stock Android experience. There is no bloatware which is a great pleasure on switching on the phone for the first time.The Moto G40 Fusion has two storage variants and you can also expand the memory via micro SD card which shares a slot in the the SIM tray.The Moto G60 as mentioned earlier has only one variant and is identical in terms of the expandable storage.
The big 6000mAh battery is a huge bonus and 20W fast charging prowess is pretty capable.
To be very honest the Moto G40 Fusion and Moto G60 are damn good offers in the price range.But the absence of 5G may make some of you skeptical. Yes 5G is still a distant reality in most areas but one likes to be covered. Personally I have no objections with the absence of 5G but more in the price of the highest variant. There are phones in that range which offers 5G support but the aspect in which the Motorola phones win hands down is the Stock Android experience. So for those who like that and are comfortable with the big size of the phone the deal is quite attractive.
