Budget smartphones often see a huge demand. Especially, in India, we see a lot of these smartphones selling. Today, we compare three such budget smartphones which are priced under Rs 11,000. We are talking about Micromax IN 1, Poco M3 and Moto G30.
Micromax IN 1 and Poco M3 sports a 6.67-inch FHD+ LCD display and 6.53-inches FHD+ LCD display respectively. The former comes with a screen resolution of 1080×2400 pixels whereas the latter has that of 1080×2340 pixels. As compared to them, Moto G30 flaunts a 6.5-inch display and has a screen resolution of 720×1600 pixels which is HD+ but has a fluent 90Hz display that puts the device in a lot more advantageous position among the users.
Moto G30 and POCO M3 are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 mobile processor whereas the Micromax IN 1 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G80 SoC.
Micromax In Note 1 has a triple-camera set up at the back which includes a 48 MP primary sensor, a 2 MP wide-angle lens, and a 2 MP depth sensor. On the front side, you will spot an 8MP camera lens. Moto G30’s quad-camera set up offers a 64-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, and two 2-megapixel sensors for macro shots and depth-sensing.
It also has a 13 MP selfie snapper. The POCO M3 also sports a triple rear camera setup which features a 48 MP primary camera, a 2 MP macro, and a 2 MP depth sensor. On the front, you will see an 8 MP Wide-Angle Primary Camera.
Battery and Fast Charging
Micromax IN 1 and Moto G30 are packed with the same 5000 mAh battery cell. The former has an 18W fast-charging support and the latter is paired with the 20W charging support. The Poco M3 draws energy from a superior 6000 mAh battery and is paired with an 18W fast-charging support.
Micromax In 1 offers 4 GB + 64 GB for Rs 10,499 (Introductory price of Rs 9,999 on March 26th). The same storage + RAM option for Moto G30 is priced at Rs 10,999. Poco M3’s 6 GB +64 GB storage option will come at a price tag of Rs 10,999. All these phones are now available in different colour options and different storage variants in Flipkart.
Micromax IN 1 has the biggest screen and offers the best model out of the three in terms of screen resolution. Snapdragon 662 SoC offers better performance than MediaTek Helio G80 mobile processor. Thus, Micromax IN 1 and Poco M3 lead in the processor’s domain.
In terms of optics, Moto G30 has the best specifications in both the rear camera module and selfie lens. Poco M3 has the best battery specifications followed by Moto G30 and Micromax IN 1. Not much to separate the three smartphones in terms of price. Micromax IN 1 is priced at Rs 500 less than Moto G30 and Poco M3.
There is no clear winner out of the three which tells a lot about the competitive nature in the price domain. Personally, I prefer a robust SoC and a powerful battery. Thus, I will go with Poco M3. But if you prefer some other features, your choice will be different.
