Motorola One Hyper Smartphone Review – Middle class with retractable camera

Florian Schmitt, 👁 Florian Schmitt (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), 01/14/2020

Peekaboo. The front camera of the Motorola One Hyper hides inside the case and only extends when needed. This gives an intact front and is also a nice gimmick. But can the mid-range smartphone convince in any other way?

Case, Equipment and Operation - Heavy, but Chic

Depending on the country, the Motorola One Hyper is available in Deep Deas Blue, a Dark Blue, Fresh Orchid, a Wine Red or Dark Amber, a Brown Tone. In some countries the Motorola One Hyper is available exclusively on the Motorola website.

The Motorola smartphone offers a front without notch or display hole, as the front camera is moving out of the case. The chassis offers a reflective back with a recessed pattern, the camera module protrudes and is also visually highlighted. The fingerprint sensor, which unlocks the device reliably and quickly, is also located on the back. An LED light ring runs around it, which is used to display notifications.

At 210 grams, the Motorola One Hyper is not a light smartphone and is also more suitable for larger hands due to its dimensions.

128 GB UFS 2.0 memory is a great thing in this price range, often there are only 64 GB and usually only the slower eMMC flash. NFC is on board as well as fast WiFi 5, the Motorola One Hyper is also quite fast on the internet in our test with the reference router Linksys Nighthawk AX12.

Cameras - Good Image Quality

Recording front camera
Recording front camera

The dual camera on the back offers a standard 64 megapixel lens and a wide angle 8 megapixel lens. In the camera app, you can clearly see that both lenses use a different white balance, which is annoying. At least there is a hybrid zoom that works relatively continuously between the wide angle and the standard lens.

The huge resolution of the main camera is mainly used to combine four pixels into one and thus capture more light by using larger pixels. However, a special mode for ultra-high resolution images is also available. In standard mode, the camera takes good photos with lots of detail, good light output and good sharpness. In dark situations, the camera achieves a decent sharpness, but only a very slight brightening of the image.

In our laboratory tests under fixed light conditions, the fairly warm colour rendering of the main lens is noticeable and the sharpness of details is satisfactory. Even at a very low exposure, some details are still visible, but the clarity of the image suffers a lot.

For video recordings, which are possible up to 4K, the exposure adjusts quickly and quite appropriately, you can even use the hybrid zoom during recording, e.g. zooming out of a shot into wide-angle view. Switching between lenses is not completely invisible, but it's a nice effect in any case.

The front camera has a resolution of 32 megapixels, and takes really sharp pictures.

Display - Uneven Brightness

Sub-pixel Array
Sub-pixel Array

The display offers an extended FullHD resolution, which is usual for this price class. It is an IPS panel that can't keep up with most competitors in terms of brightness. It should be bright enough for everyday use, but if you are in very bright environments, you will notice the difference.

We measured PWM, but with a very high frequency and only up to 10% brightness, so there shouldn't be any problems for sensitive people. The distribution of brightness is rather moderately even, and with the naked eye you can see that one corner is considerably darker than the others when you look closely.

The black level is also rather average, the colours can be more or less saturated depending on the setting. The high saturation setting looks quite colourful, a lower setting gives a more natural picture impression. A clear blue cast is visible in our measurements with the CalMAN software, but the colour and grey scale deviations are rather small.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
22 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11 ms rise
↘ 11 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 27 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
44 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 25 ms rise
↘ 19 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 64 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 2404 Hz ≤ 15 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 2404 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 15 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 2404 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 13646 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance, Emissions and Battery Life - One Hyper with Lots of Power

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 is a quite potent midrange processor that can keep up well in our benchmarks. The comparable devices offer either as much or even less performance as the Nokia 7.2. The Honor 20 is only clearly ahead in terms of graphics performance.

If you look at the memory speeds, they are quite typical for UFS 2.0 memory when it comes to internal memory. The Honor 20 is also clearly ahead with its UFS 2.1 memory. 

The Motorola One Hyper reads memory cards via the microSD slot, which can also be used as a SIM slot. So it is only possible to use either one SIM card and one microSD or two SIM cards. The speeds with our reference microSD Toshiba Exceria Pro M501 are average, but a bit slower than in the Nokia 7.2.

The smartphone can get a bit warm under load, but it never reaches unpleasant temperature ranges on the outer shell. 

The loudspeaker can get quite loud, it offers a fairly balanced mixture, whereby there are slightly overemphasized trebles that you can also notice when listening to music. The sound is most powerful at full volume, underneath it becomes considerably thinner. A 3.5mm connector for analogue headphones is available. 

The battery life is 12:33 hours. Not a bad value, but given the 4,000 mAh battery, even more would have been possible, as the Xiaomi Mi 9T shows. It should easily suffice for a working day, normal users should also manage 2 or 3 days without a power outlet. The quick charger with 27 watts can bring the Motorola phone quickly back to full charge, you don't have to wait longer than 1:30 hours for it.

Verdict – The Cameras Are Really Good

In Review: Motorola One Hyper. Test device provided by Motorola Germany.
In Review: Motorola One Hyper. Test device provided by Motorola Germany.

The Motorola One Hyper is a chic mid-range phone that has good performance, with a battery life that is on par with its class, doesn't get too warm, can display colors quite accurately and comes with good cameras. The case is also chic, the fingerprint sensor is fast and the LED ring on the back is a good idea.

In addition, there is the latest Android 10, which has hardly been changed by pre-installed software. The many and fast memory is also a plus point and the quick charging technology is fun because you don't have to wait long for a full battery.

The Motorola One Hyper is a midrange smartphone with good cameras and hardly any weak points.

But we can of course also complain: On the one hand, there is the strangely uneven brightness distribution on the screen, the different white balance of the two camera lenses, which is especially noticeable when zooming, and the Motorola One Hyper's heavy weight, which could be a deterrent for some buyers. 

All in all, these are rather minor problems that can hardly cloud the overall good impression of the Smarpthone.
