After reading all the info and posts and using 2 different phones each with one of the mentioned socs: Vivo Y21s (G80) 4GB/128GB Older Moto G32 (680) 4GB/128GB Newer Both phones have 5000mAh batteries. In my testing for my use, the older Vivo Y21s (G80) just does things better and offers me more running time. Which is odd since it should chew more power. It has a slower refresh (60hz), and lower res (720 x 1600) so I gather that's where the power is saved. But regardless the Y21s (G80) doesn't need charging for 2 days with heavy use. The newer Moto G32 (680) does the same apps, and the same screen brightness (well as the best visual matching) but needs charging a little after 1 day of heavy use. Even so, the newer Moto G32 (680) does have some strong points I admire such as newer tech used to make it eg: higher res & refresh. But even with that reduced 6nm process and less power consumption, it is still a pig under load. It runs hot when loaded up heavily which negates the idea of better power consumption. Basically, if it's running hot then it's chewing more power. Higher refresh and res, then I can see why the power drops a bit too quickly for my liking. The Vivo y21s G80 seems to get warm but nowhere near as hot as the Moto G32 680 doing the exact same things. Put it down to manufacturers Vivo vs Moto I suppose when it comes to cooling. So for me I'll keep the Moto G32 even knowing the results I get mainly because it's But in all honesty, both socs are already dated, and since they are entry-low/mid-level chips (cheap) I wouldn't get hung up on the tech of either after using both sides by side. If your getting an absolute bargain price for the device you buying and one of those socs is your only choice then timing really is the key to it all at this price point.
