Moto G24 Power: Competition
The Moto G24 Power has entered India in a price segment that is crowded with options from other brands, such as the Lava Yuva 3 Pro. The Yuva 3 Pro is offered at Rs 8,999 for the only 8GB + 128GB model, and that gets you more RAM, a similar display, and all the other features the Moto G24 Power has to offer, except for a smaller battery and slower charging.
Also, the handset runs on Android 13, while Motorola’s G24 Power runs on the latest Android 14. The Yuva 3 Pro has the price advantage of getting you more RAM, which should result in a smoother experience. Both smartphones’ chipsets perform equally in daily use, but it would depend on how each brand has optimised overall.
There’s another smartphone from Lava called Blaze 2 5G that is priced at Rs 9,999, and the only advantage it has over Moto G24 Power is that it’s a 5G smartphone and gets a more powerful chipset. The same advantages are also given to you by Itel with its Itel P55 5G along with more RAM and a better processor under the hood.
Overall, the Moto G24 Power doesn’t look like a smartphone you should avoid in its price range. It gets you a big battery, stereo speakers, and other metrics that sit in line with the competition or are even better in some areas. It’s only a matter of preference that may influence you in considering Moto G24 Power’s competitors over itself.
