If you value performance and multitasking, the Motorola Moto G100 with a more powerful processor and higher RAM will handle demanding tasks better. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy A23 offers a newer release date which often means more recent software updates. Both phones have the same battery capacity and plastic builds, but the Moto G100 has a slightly larger screen which may enhance your viewing experience, although this comes with a slightly bulkier body. Camera-wise, the Moto G100 has a higher-resolution main camera, which could mean better photo quality, yet the Galaxy A23 has a higher refresh rate display that might provide smoother scrolling and animation. Both run Android and have headphone jacks, maintaining familiarity in the operating system and compatibility with wired earphones. Give Feedback

Pocket-lint

Mike Lowe | March 2021
"A budget gaming-capable phone that foregoes the AMOLED screen hype and camera cost implications to deliver a half-price near-flagship that, in use, adds up to oh so much more. Even plugging away at games for hours at a time doesn't cause too much trouble where battery is concerned. The 5,000mAh cell is a big part of the reason for the G100's above average weight, but it's a great capacity to have at your fingertips."

Android Police

Connor Nolan | October 2022
"With four years of security updates, a Snapdragon 695, and far and away the best display at this price point, the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G is one of the best values in the budget category you're likely to see for quite a while. Buy it if you want a super long support life for your budget phone."
