Motorola Moto G10: Why we're excited about the case
Motorola has really made an effort to do some things differently in the anniversary generation of its Moto G smartphones: First of all, the series is divided into several smartphones that have been given new names like Moto G30, G50, and G100.
The inexpensive Moto G10, on the other hand, correctly carries on the generational naming conventions, but Motorola has also come up with something special here: While the Moto G9 Play predecessor still looked almost boring in terms of design, i.e. monochromatic and just a bit glossy, the back of the successor is a real eye-catcher: Both the dark and light variants of the case provide an iridescent effect, which means that they shimmer in different colors. Our light variant, for example, oscillates between light violet and green.
The effect is difficult to capture in pictures, which we experienced ourselves in the photo studio with the Motorola Moto G10. So, if you have a smartphone retailer nearby that is open, it's best to take a look at the device in person.
Not only does the clearly prominent wave pattern on the back look stylish, but it also results in a high-quality feel.
But it gets even better: Although the back of the Moto G10 is only made of plastic and it's quite a cheap smartphone at a manufacturer's price of 149 Euros (~$178), the smartphone is very stable and hardly yields under pressure, which contributes to an impression of very good quality considering the price range.
Unfortunately, Motorola has cut corners in other areas as our review revealed: Fast charging is no longer available, and the Moto G10 has to make do with a slightly slower SoC than the predecessor.
