Motorola is one of the old names in the mobile phone market. However, as the years rolls by, the company was left behind by the competition. Nevertheless, after its alliance with Lenovo, it is getting back on its feet. Today, Motorola released four mobile phones and all the mobile phones are in the entry-level segment. In addition to the Moto G53 5G and Moto G73 5G, Motorola also released the Moto G13 and Moto G23 which are cheaper.
Moto G13 and Moto G23 details
Both the Moto G13 and Moto G23 are entry-level mobile phones but they come with some pretty decent specs. For instance, both mobile phones come with a 50MP camera as well as a high refresh rate screen. They also boast of a 5000 mAh large-capacity battery, and the native Android 13 system is pre-installed out of the box. These are features that we can find on mid-range mobile phones.

In addition to the 5000 mAh battery, the Moto G23 supports TurboPower 30W charging, a feature that the Moto G13 does not have. As for the Moto G13, it supports 20W charging.

In the camera department, the Moto G23 and Moto G13 are pretty different. While the Moto G23 comes with a triple rear camera setup, the Moto G12 comes with dual rear cameras. The main camera for both mobile phones is 50MP. However, the Moto G23 also has a 5MP (f/2.2, 1.75μm) ultra-wide-angle camera that also acts as a depth sensor and a 2MP (f/2.4, 1.75μm) macro camera.
