POCO X5 brings its idea of ​​providing an affordable set with a good experience in practice. The Moto G53 arrived to revamp the line, maintaining the proposal to provide benefits to the consumer without paying too much.

In the light between these two intermediaries from Xiaomi and Motorola, which smartphone has the most interesting attributes to make it the winner in cost-effectiveness? Let’s find out the answer now, here at TechSmart.

design and connectivity

These devices do not bring a more advanced construction. This means that we find in them a body made of plastic both on the sides and on the back. The Moto takes advantage here by having the smallest dimensions and the lightest weight of the pair.

Each one follows a line to look more premium. The X5 opts for the very flashy black camera block, while the G53 bets on a smaller rectangular module to house the rear sensors.

Motorola Moto G53

POCO takes the best in resistance, as it has IP53 certification, which guarantees protection against dust and water splashes. Manufacturers are equal in the presence of a notch in the form of a hole and a fingerprint reader integrated into the power button.

Both Xiaomi and Motorola also use a hybrid drawer, which shares the second carrier chip space with the microSD card slot. They even contain fifth-generation Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.1 and NFC for contactless payments.

Greater resistance on one side; more compact and lighter body of the other. We start with a draw.

Screen


POCO has an AMOLED-type screen, which delivers a higher level of brightness and viewing angle than the LCD used by Moto. The Chinese is still above in size in inches and frontal use.

The X5 comes with a Full HD+ resolution, to offer a better image definition than the HD+ only present in the G53. Not to mention Gorilla Glass 3, which reinforces the protection of the display against scratches. At least, both provide a refresh rate of 120 Hz, so as not to disappoint in the fluidity of the system’s animations.

It’s a point for Xiaomi.

Sound


The Chinese decided to save on audio and put only a mono sound output on her cell phone. Motorola, on the other hand, did not do the same and inserted a stereo system, which takes advantage of the call speaker as a secondary channel, to expand the user’s immersive experience.

As a consequence, we have a greater sound power in the G53. This one also offers the best quality, even though it and the X5 suffer from the same problem in frequency balance, with the most strident highs at maximum volume.

If you prefer to use headphones, manufacturers no longer send a unit in the package. However, the physical connector appears on both devices, so you can plug in any accessory you have at home.

So Moto takes the point this time.

System


The X5 still comes out of the box with Android 12 native, against version 13 of the “little robot” pre-installed on the G53. Xiaomi does not commit to updates for this POCO line, while Motorola only guarantees a major update between Moto G models.

In any case, the mobile network remains fast on both devices, thanks to support for 5G technology. Already the 120 Hz rate helps with the fluidity of their system, although Moto does better for its cleaner interface.

POCO stands out in features for the Always-on Display and the effects that appear on the edges when a notification arrives. Not to mention the use of the power button as a shortcut to open the camera. The G53, on the other hand, comes with the traditional gestures to activate the flashlight and run the camera, in addition to the Secure Folder, which keeps apps and media always protected.

In the details, we give the point to Motorola.

Performance

POCO X5

Motorola Moto G53

POCO comes equipped with the Snapdragon 695 and 6 GB of RAM. The Moto, on the other hand, features the Snapdragon 480 Plus platform, accompanied by 4 GB of RAM. Does this difference in memory impact speed? We saw that in our tests. The Chinese had a big advantage in multitasking, which allowed him to be around 35 seconds faster than his rival.

The benchmarks confirm the X5’s victory in performance, with superior numbers in both Geekbench and AnTuTu. In games, they run well even the most demanding titles, even far from perfection.

Xiaomi notes one more point.

Battery

POCO X5

Motorola Moto G53

In both smartphones we find a 5,000 mAh battery. But having the same capacity is far from representing equal autonomy. In our standardized tests, POCO took over 31 hours to fully discharge. Well above the Moto’s 20 and a half hour runtime.

And the scenery does not change on reload. Xiaomi sends a 33 W adapter, which allows the X5 to reach 100% in 1 hour and 15 minutes. In turn, the 20 W TurboPower sent by Motorola takes approximately half an hour longer to complete the process.

This is an easy point for the Chinese model.

Camera

The POCO has three rear cameras, against a dual set present on the Moto. The main 48 MP of the X5 fails even in well-lit places, due to its excessive noise. The 50 MP of the G53 also has its problems with the same situation, but it gets more right in colors, contrast and dynamic range. This cell phone still gets the better of night mode, as it doesn’t have as many grains as the rival.

Their macro is the weakest of the set and only does the basics, because of the low resolution and lack of autofocus. Only the Chinese has an ultrawide sensor, which is not impressive, but it is there to give you the option of taking wider photos.

Motorola delivers more qualities and takes the point.

The duo’s camcorder is limited to Full HD resolution at 30 fps. Manufacturers have not inserted a stabilization system, which makes it difficult to deal with shakes. The quality of the G53 is slightly higher, both in image and audio capture, in addition to its more agile focus.

Overall, the point goes to Moto.

The front camera of the two takes good selfies in bright places and does not present so many problems when capturing at night. An important point in this regard is that POCO’s HDR doesn’t always work and ends up leaving the background blown out, whether with portrait mode activated or not. Front-facing footage is also no more than Full HD resolution.

It’s one more point for Moto.

Price

The two devices officially arrived in Europe. The POCO X5 had a suggested retail price of BRL 2,900, well above the BRL 1,900 charged at the launch of the Moto G53. In the current market, both can already be found for lower values, but the Motorola model is the closest to reaching R$ 1,000.

Thus, the G53 takes the final point of the duel.

Conclusion

In this confrontation between intermediaries, Xiaomi was unable to beat Motorola on the scoreboard. But still the POCO X5 showed its main characteristics. It is the model with the toughest design, the fastest performance and the battery life that yields more, without compromising its lower time on charge. Apart from its AMOLED screen, which delivers superior quality than the rival’s LCD.

On the other hand, the Moto G53 proved to be the most complete alternative of the duo. It has the most compact and lightest body, the stereo sound, the factory-updated system and the set of cameras that get more right in rear photos, videos and selfies. In addition to all this, it is this device that can be purchased at a cheaper price in the Europeian market.
