What’s Different

Both smartphones are recent releases but those who are looking for a Moto G device should know that the Moto G100 has a much higher price than the G50.

The Moto G100 has a bigger display and much better specs. One of the main highlights of the phone is on the camera department. The Moto G100 packs a 64MP main camera. One of the main features of it is in the video capture, with the phone having the options of [email protected], [email protected]/60fps, and [email protected]/60/120fps.

The Moto G family has always stood out for being in the affordable side. The Moto G from years ago was a huge hit and the releases have continued since. The series is bigger than ever now, with phones such as the Moto G50 and Moto G100 now joining the lineup.

Motorola has made several Moto G releases this year but the Moto G100 seems to be one of the most interesting so far. The specs and features are solid but those come at a higher price. The Moto G50 does not match the Moto G100 but it is a solid option for those looking for something at a lower price. There is also the other Moto G releases, which cost just a few hundred.
