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

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
