Motorola One Power Review: Is it the best Smartphone of Moto in a budget?

Motorola has recently launched Motorola One Power in India. The smartphone comes with a price of Rs 15,999 and it is available on Flipkart.

Motorola has as of late rolled out an improvement in its strategy and the brand is presently centering the One-series for the online space while the E-series and G-series will be intended for the offline segment. Talking about the Motorola One Power, it gives you a decent amount of features and hardware configuration. But, is it worth purchasing? We should discover.

Design and Display 

Motorola has selected a standard design for its smartphone. The Motorola One Power comes stacked with a metallic design with marginally ergonomic outline, which makes it simpler to hold. But, the phone is somewhat thick when contrasted with the preferences Nokia 6.1 Plus or Xiaomi Mi A2. So, we liked the situation of a finger print sensor as it was less demanding to reach without extending your index finger. The company has additionally included its famous batwing logo in the finger print sensor, which looks great. The phone gives a strong look, but, we have seen different phones with better design.

Strangely, this is the first smartphone from Motorola to accompany a notch. The phone includes a 6.28-inch Full HD+ Max Vision display with a screen resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels. The display offers some fresh content and the brightness is to the point.


The Motorola One Power is controlled by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor with Adreno 509 GPU. This combined with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage, gives a smooth execution. The phone does not show any lag when you utilize it as a day by day driver. Performing various tasks is great also. What we didn't care for about this phone was no support for dual 4G. The primary SIM is locked to 4G, while another SIM is limited to the 3G network. Ideally, the company may reveal a update to make the dual 4G usefulness work.

Going to the gaming performance, the phone handles a large portion of the easygoing games like Candy Crush, Subway Surfers, Temple Run 2 and more without much inconvenience. While playing PUBG Mobile, the graphics were consequently chosen as low and during the gameplay, we didn't see much lag in low graphics settings and there was no overheating issue also.

Coming to software, the Motorola One Power keeps running on Android 8.1 Oreo and the best part here is it comes with Android One program. This essentially implies One Power will get three of security updates and two years of major Android updates. Furthermore, Moto has uncovered that the phone will get Android Pie update by end of this current year. Going to the UI, you get the most perfect type of Android and it beyond any doubt is a joy for the individuals who need stock Android. The fascinating thing here is that Motorola has figured out how to include a portion of its mark highlights like Moto Actions and Moto Display.

With Moto Actions, users can use gestures to perform several tasks. One can cleave twice for spotlight and twist to immediately open the camera application. The Moto Display resembles Always in plain view found in flagship phones and it likewise enables you to communicate with notifications without awakening the phone.


Regarding the camera, the Motorola One Power is outfitted with a dual camera setup at the back, which accompanies a mix of 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. On the front, there is a 12-megapixel camera for selfies and video calling. The sunlight performance of the phone is satisfactory and you get point by point shots when the light is perfect. Be that as it may, with regards to macro shots, the phone struggles to focus quickly and you have to tap different times to bolt regarding the subject you need to highlight. The low light execution is very normal as the photographs come up short on some enumerating and the sharpness isn't up to the mark.

There is a night mode, however it doesn't get automatically switched when there is low light, you need to physically switch it on. Be that as it may, the photographs with Night Mode was somewhat superior to in typical mode. The front camera completes a conventional activity in capturing photograph and the front LED flash is useful in low light conditions. The bokeh effect on both front and the back camera looks characteristic and the device supports up to 4K video recording. There is no image stabilization, which results in shaky video output.


The One thing we like about this phone is the Power. Motorola One Power comes stacked with a great 5000mAh battery. Therefore it gives a very good battery life. The phone serenely kept going very nearly 1.5 days under typical use. Under heavy usage which includes playing high-end games, streaming videos, using WhatsApp and sending emails, the phone managed to last till the end of the day. Coming to charging, the TurboPower charge helps in fast charging this enormous battery. The phone was charged just about 70 percent in one hour and it took over 2 hours to charge completely.


Motorola has done the right pricing this time, after the screw up it did with Moto G6 Plus. Motorola One Power comes stacked with decent specifications and the significant preferred standpoint here is the Android One program and amazing 5000mAh battery. This combined with great display and standard design, makes it a fascinating option to consider in this price range. But, the phone faces a hardened rivalry with like of Nokia 6.1 Plus and Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1, as them two offer similar features. The Nokia 6.1 Plus looks more premium with its build quality, though, ZenFone Max Pro M1 is somewhat less expensive than this one and still figures out how to give relatively similar specifications.
