2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Simple, but distinctive Moto design, and good build quality
  • Light-weight
  • Good ergonomics
  • Decent display (although sunlight legibility could have been better)
  • Great battery life - lasts a full day even with heavy use - and outperforms its top competitors like the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime
  • Removable battery
  • Solid build quality
  • Nice, elegant design
  • Comfortable to hold
  • Water-resistant
  • Decent display - images and websites looked fairly crisp and sharp
  • Comes loaded with clean, near stock Android, with almost no bloatware
  • Decent speed/performance - pleasant to use in daily use
  • Decent rear camera - takes pretty good outdoor photos (in mixed light, it takes OK photos, and in low light, it struggles and images tend to have some noise)
  • Decent front camera too - skin tones looked fairly natural in selfies
  • Decent video recording performance - takes serviceable HD videos at 30 fps
  • Nice, loud front-facing speaker
  • Overall reliable hardware and software
  • Very good battery life - easily last for a little more than a day for moderate to heavy usage
  • Removable/replaceable battery
  • One the whole a good option for users looking for an decent device that’s solid, runs well, and has a battery that’ll last all day
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Average overall performance - falling quite a bit behind the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi 3S - even in regular usage
  • Average camera - there is quite a bit of noise in most photos, and they aren’t the sharpest either - again falling behind the cameras of its main competitors like the Lenovo Vibe K5 and the Xiaomi Redmi 3S
  • No gyroscope
  • Average sunlight legibility of the display
  • Although performance in daily use is good enough, it tends to lag when playing games and taking panoramic photos
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • No gyroscope
  • Bundled charger has a slow charging speed - taking about 4 hours to full charge
