2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Nice, metal design with a plastic frame surrounding the corners
  • Feels sturdy in the hand
  • Motorola One Power is the first handset from the company’s smartphone shelf to offer a notch display in the Indian market - from the front side, the phone has a striking resemblance to the iPhone X - even at the back, Moto One Power sports similarly vertically stacked dual camera sensors
  • The matte finish saves the device from smudges and fingerprint, which is a common problem with glass cased devices
  • Nice, large, sharp display, with a 19:9 aspect ratio - the colours are quite pleasant and the viewing angles are nice as well
  • The other key USP of the device apart from a large screen and large battery, is that it's part of the Android One series - which means a stock, clean version of Android, plus a promise of regular updates for 2 years
  • Although the UI is stock, Motorola does add some of it's useful proprietary functionality on top - Moto Display (Ambient display) and Moto Actions (gestures)
  • Good, solid mid-range performance backed by the fast, efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 636, the chipset that debuted on Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 Pro - the Moto One Power performs well with almost anything you throw at it - with barely any stutter or lag - it will handle multitasking smoothly and apps are quick to launch - even with the graphically demanding games, you are unlikely to face any hiccups
  • Decent set of dual rear cameras - manage to render decent output in well-lit conditions, with reasonable colour reproduction
  • Portrait shots are just about decent too
  • Decent selfie camera too, with a front LED flash, and software based portrait mode
  • Houses bottom-firing speakers with mono speaker grille placed on both side and USB Type-C port at the centre - delivers good audio quality courtesy of the Dolby Audio that enhances the audio experience - even with volume pitched at the highest level, the phone does not produce shrill sound
  • Extra long battery life, with a gigantic 5000mAh battery - you will get nearly two days-worth of backup with casual usage
  • If you want a stock Android phone with guaranteed updates, a large screen and a large battery - the Motorola One Power is a pretty strong choice - it is easily one of the best value devices that Motorola has launched in Indian in a while - there is competition though, depending on what you value - if you want a better camera, look at the Redmi Note Pro or Mi A2 - if you want a better design, look at the Realme 2 Pro - if you want to still have Android One, but in a more compact device, look at Nokia 6.1 Plus - and if you want to have better RAM, at a lower price, look at the Zenfone Max Pro M1
  • Classy, attractive, well-built design, with a glass back - it looks much more premium than its price would suggest
  • The glass back has a light-reflecting finish that can't match the likes of the Honor View 20 or Honor 20 Lite for 'wow' factor, but which is nonetheless eye-catching
  • The front of the phone is a unique 21:9 'tall & narrow' screen, with a punch hole front camera (a feature that's so far been restricted to flagship handsets like the Galaxy S10 series)
  • The narrow dimensions means the phone is fairly easy to use one-handed
  • The handset has been finished with a water repellent coating that gives it an IP52 rating for dust and water resistance - that's enough to survive splashes
  • Well located (and fast) fingerprint sensor on the back
  • Responsive face unlock
  • The FHD+ 6.3in display looks nice and the 21:9 aspect ratio is perfect for those that want to enjoy ultra-wide 'cinematic view' movies on Netflix
  • Being part of the Android One series, you get a clean stock Android experience, alongside regular updates
  • Motorola adds a few useful extras, as always: the usual Gestures are present, including shaking the handset to open the camera, doing a 'karate chop' to toggle the torch on and off, and tapping the screen with three fingers to take a screenshot
  • All-round speedy/snappy performance with a Samsung Exynos 9609 processor (similar to Snapdragon 710)
  • Good rear camera setup (48MP standard + 5MP depth) - it gives good all-round results, day and night, photo and video - the overall quality is similar the Redmi Note 7 Pro
  • Night Vision mode also delivers some good night shots
  • OIS too helps with low-light photos
  • Portrait shots are good too, with good separation
  • Good 25MP selfie camera too (though it's on the slow side when shooting at full 25MP resolution)
  • Decent speaker on the bottom edge - delivers decent volume
  • Decent (though not exceptional) battery life with a 3500mAh battery - you will get the full day with moderate use - there are many competitors who are ahead in this area though
  • Fast charging support
  • Overall, if it's a pure Android experience that you are after, the One Vision is a good all-round mid-range option which ticks almost all boxes, and also stands out from the crowd, with a stylish design, a 'cinematic' display, and the punch hole front camera
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The device does not however have a compact form - with a thickness of 8.9mm in thickness and weight of 205g, it's definitely on the bulky side
  • No Face unlock (you can of course use Android's built in "smart unlock/trusted face" security feature, but that's somewhat slower and less secure than the custom Face unlock implementations on most smartphones these days)
  • The focus accuracy of the dual rear camera sensors could have been better
  • During low light situations, you will observe a fair amount of noise creeping into the images and loss of detail on the subject
  • Overall, the cameras are ok, but in a similar price bracket, the Moto G6 (and other top camera phones) offer better cameras
  • With the tall dimensions, pocket-ability is not that great, so the phone will tend to protrude out of shallow pockets
  • The punch-hole is on the large side - which makes it both a bit of an eyesore, and on occasion an obstacle to the cinematic immersion
  • There is not a lot of cinema content available right now to take advantage of the 21:9 aspect ratio
  • There is some strong competition though that's worth looking at, including the Galaxy A50 (larger AMOLED with in-display fingerprint scanner, and better battery life, though camera is not as good), the Poco F1 (much more powerful performance, though design is not as modern), and the Redmi Note 7 Pro (cheaper, better battery life, though MIUI is not as clean/simple as stock Android)
