These two phones, the newly announced Motorola Edge 20 Lite and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro are some seriously good budget camera phones, but which one is better, this comparison should help you find out.
When it comes to price you can see that in the UK the Motorola is £299, whereas the Redmi starts from £249, goes up to £269 for more storage and if you more RAM it's on par with Motorola, but in the EU the Motorola is €349 and the Redmi starts from €279, goes to €299 for more storage and then finally goes up to €349 for more RAM, so the Redmi is going to get the point simply because there are cheaper configurations available.
When looking at the dimensions you can clearly see that the Redmi is shorter, the Motorola is skinnier and the Redmi is thinner, so once again the Redmi is going to get a point for being shorter and thinner than the Motorola.
Design and build
Once you look at the design and build you can see that the Motorola is a cheap slab of generic glass and plastic with some attractive colours and a water repellent coating, whereas the Redmi has Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back with an IP53 rating, so once again the Redmi is getting the point for it's somewhat premium feeling design and better water protection.
Operating system and support
As you can see OS support looks pretty good on both phones, they already both pack the latest Android 11, they will both probably get 3 years of security updates and 2 years of major OS updates and the Redmi will get an extra year of MIUI updates, so once again the Redmi gets the point.
In terms of connectivity the Redmi lacks 5G, the Moto and Redmi both support up to 802.11ac Wi-Fi, but the Redmi has the newer Bluetooth 5.1 over the Motorola's Bluetooth 5.0, this time around it's going to be a tie because both phones have benefits, the Redmi with Bluetooth 5.1 and the Motorola for it's 5G.
When you look at the SoCs and then compare them NanoReview you will see that the Snapdragon is better in every category except for battery life where it's beaten by the MediaTek, but regardless the point is still going to the Redmi for it's better performance.
The RAM on both phones is pretty decent with both phones packing the same 8GB RAM, but the Redmi also has 6GB RAM and it's faster LPDDR4X, so once again the Redmi gets the point for it's faster RAM and the cheap 6GB options.
The storage on both phones is pretty decent with both phones packing a generous 128GB of it, but the Redmi not only has a 64GB option, but it also uses faster UFS 2.2 storage, so once again the Redmi is getting the point, for it's faster storage and it's cheaper 64GB option.
Battery and charging
Both phones have generous battery capacities and decent charging speeds, but the Redmi's battery is bigger by 20mAh and it's charging speed is faster by 3W, so once again the Redmi gets the point for it's bigger battery and faster charging.
Both phones have great displays with 1080p resolutions, HDR support and high refresh rates, the Redmi having a 120Hz refresh rate and the Motorola having a 90Hz refresh rate, the Motorola also has HDR10+ support over the Redmi's HDR10, it can also display 1 billion colours, so the Motorola is getting the point for it's HDR10+ support and support for 1 billion colours.
Both camera setups are very good, packing the same flagship grade 108MP main cameras, 8MP ultrawide cameras and 2MP depth cameras, the Redmi does have a 5MP macro camera, which the Motorola doesn't have, but who cares about macro cameras nowadays, both phones can record in 4K, but the Motorola can film 1080p video at up to 120fps, so I think it's going to be a tie because both phones have capable camera setups and loads of video potential.
The selfie cameras on both phones look pretty decent, packing high resolution sensors and great video potential, but the Redmi lacks the HDR that you get on the Motorola, so once again the Motorola gets the point for it's higher resolution 32MP sensor and HDR support.
The security features on both phones just consists of fingerprint the Motorola has an optical under display reader and the Redmi has a side mounted reader, so I think this point is going to the Motorola again because of it's better optical under display fingerprint reader.
Both phones are seriously good, packing some decent specs for the price and some of the best cameras you can get, but as you see according to the point tally the winner of this comparison is the Redmi Note 10 Pro, I remember when I first saw this phones specs, I probably had to double take when looking at the specs of that camera, it's just too good for the price and as well when you look at that flagship grade display, the massive battery and the great performance from that Snapdragon 732G, it all adds up to the best phone you can get on a budget of £300/€300, keep looking out for more posts on this lovely subreddit and soon I will be posting a specs comparison featuring the Motorola Edge 20 and the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G, until then have a great day, stay safe, stay positive and goodbye for now.`
