Motorola launched two smartphones Moto G60 and Moto G40 Fusion earlier this month. Smartphones are similar in nature and looks, but there is one major factor that differentiates the two phones: the camera. Motorola jumped on the 108-megapixel bandwagon with the Moto G60. With this Motorola became the third smartphone brand to introduce a 108 megapixel camera smartphone in India as Xiaomi and Realme are already present in the market. Although Motorola is selling this phone at the cheapest price.


Motorola is selling the Moto G60 for Rs 17,999, but if it includes a bank offer, you can get it for Rs 1,000 less.

So will the Moto G60 have the cut? Let's explore in the review.


Moto G60 Review: Design

Best Phones


Motorola doesn't experiment much with its design, but that's not really the case with the Moto G60. Those who watch Motorola's launch closely may have noticed that the design feels a bit premium, and some accents have been added to give the phone a posh look. The most noticeable change is the camera module. It has three huge sensors, and if you get the Dynamic Gray color, you'll get a teal-colored camera model that protrudes a bit.
The Moto G60 has a glossy rear panel made of plastic but it doesn't looking cheap. However, the panel does tend to attract fingerprints and smudges on the left, right, and center, so it's always recommended to use it with the cover on. It can also be slippery, so whenever you hold your phone make sure your hand is free of oil or water.

Now when it comes to size and weight, the Moto G60 is a hefty device. It sports a 6.8-inch display with thin bezels at the corners and a camera hole at the top. The smartphone weighs 225g and is 9.8mm thick. One-handed operation can be a bit of a hassle for people with small palms, but if you have big palms, it won't be much of a problem.

All the buttons including the volume rocker are located on the right side of the phone. Each has a different texture so that it can be easily identified. However, due to the large screen size, the Google Assistant button is hard to reach. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top. The Moto G60 uses a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, but all its competition has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. This is one area where Motorola needs to step up its game to escape the mundane. Overall, the design didn't seem too generic to me, considering how previous phones were designed. It may be crappy, but it's not a bad looking phone.

Moto G60 review: Performance

The Moto G60 uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G which has been used in all its competitions. But the Moto G60 comes with a near-stock Android experience which means your phone is free from preloaded apps that are available on all other Android phones. You won't be bothered by constant notifications from bloatware on your Moto G60, which will make your experience as smooth as butter.
The Moto G60 handles all the basic tasks like calling, receiving calls and switching from one app to another quite efficiently and even when you move on to gaming, it doesn't disappoint at all. I have used the phone for a little over two weeks to confirm that the phone works like a breeze. Not even once did I face any problem in using this phone. It may not be very fast, but it is fast enough to get your job done.
I played some heavy games including Asphalt 9 and Call of Duty, but the phone did not heat up even once. The graphics were impressive, and the Moto G60 makes gaming so much fun with the large screen size. This is a delight for those who want to buy a phone that performs efficiently and doesn't lag behind in running high-end games.

Now coming to the most impressive bit of the Moto G60, the battery. The smartphone comes with a massive 6000mAh battery with support for fast charging. The battery easily lasts for more than two days on moderate usage. Even if you use it vigorously, it will last for more than a day. So with the Moto G60, lack of juice will never be a problem.




Moto G60 review: Camera

Motorola has launched a lot of phones this year, but the reason why the Moto G60 was so highly anticipated was its camera. The smartphone comes with a 108 megapixel camera. This could be one of the primary reasons to attract more buyers, but one also has to remember that there are other phones with 108-megapixels in the market and the Redmi Note 10 Pro has done tremendously well with its camera in this case. work done. So how well does the Moto G60 camera perform? We'll find out.

The Moto G60 packs a 108-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a depth sensor. The ultra-wide camera also doubles as a macro sensor. The camera app is quite interactive, easy to use, and it also guides users to click pictures using the right mode as per the circumstances.



The Moto G60 takes impressive pictures in broad daylight. You will see many details in the photos captured when the lighting is good. Images aren't over-saturated, nor are they pixelated. The colors appear to be quite natural without any forced enhancement. Here the primary camera takes the cake for taking detailed pictures. There is an option of 8x zoom in the camera, which works well only when the light is sufficient. I used the zoom mode a couple of times, and it managed to capture decent images. Details get lost at times, and you shouldn't expect much clarity, but it does the job well.

Portrait or macro shots taken through the phone are impressive. The camera blurs the background very well and captures accurate colors. You can also set the level of blur before clicking the close up picture. Macro mode works like a charm, and especially if you are clicking pictures of flowers, you will be quite happy with the results.

Now when the lighting conditions are not good, the image quality drops. Images aren't grainy or jarring, but details are missing. Interestingly, photos clicked using normal mode turn out sharper, more detailed than photos clicked using night mode. The Moto G60 packs a 32-megapixel camera that captures sharp and crisp images.
Moto G60 review: Should you buy it?
Motorola has done a great job with the Moto G60 for Rs 17,999. It has come, so to speak. The performance of the smartphone is quite smooth and fast, the battery is impressive and lasts for more than two days. The camera captures sharp and crisp images during the day. Basically, the Moto G60 is a complete package. If you want a phone that can handle gaming, perform basic tasks efficiently and click good pictures, then this is the phone you should be looking for.
