Reviews for the Motorola One

83.6% Motorola One Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
For those who are just looking for a mid-range smartphone with pure Android, a nice case, and a large display, Motorola is offering the new Motorola One. You could describe the concept as "concentrating on the essentials." We take a closer look at the Motorola One in our test.

The Motorola One was a solid mid-range choice at launch for those after a phone with a modern look and a sensible price. It looks even better now, at £199 in some shops. But it had, and has, stiff competition from Moto’s own G6 phones and the best of Huawei and Honor.

80% Motorola Moto One review: The affordable, affable mid-ranger
Source: Pocket Lint English
For £200 there are few phones as rounded and long-lasting as Motorola's affordable push back into the market. That said, its near competition offers greater hardware and resolution for just a little more cash. But, on balance, for the right price the One is a well considered Android handset for the casual user.

The Motorola One is a fine phone that lacks any crippling flaws, but elements such as a low-res display and an average camera make it hard to champion over other lower-mid-range alternatives.

The Motorola One is an odd device to figure out. In particular how it fits in with the firm's other mid-range phones like the Moto G6 and G6 Plus which are both highly recommended from us.

Motorola One, First Take: Affordable, with regular Android updates
Source: Zdnet.com English
So, here's the thing. A straight point-for-point comparison with the Motorola G6 or G6 Plus puts the older phones slightly ahead of the newer one. The key feature that inclines me to the older phones is their superior screens. If you're looking for the Android One guarantee, you might be swayed; otherwise you may want to look elsewhere for a bargain.

However, at MSRP, the budget materials in the shell and unimpressive overall performance of the slightly dated chipset, compared with the only average camera quality seem like plenty of reason to shop around for other devices before jumping on the Motorola One.

Overall, the phone has a reasonably decent set of specs and we like the design (if you're ok with a notch). Android One has to be the main lure here with all the updates the scheme guarantees.

The Motorola One is interesting on a few fronts. It’s an Android One phone, meaning it uses an almost untouched Google Android interface, not a custom one. A tasteful, likeable Android, if not one quite as value-packed as Motorola’s very best.

80% Motorola One Power review: Android One plus a massive battery equals a winner
Source: India Today English
The Motorola One Power is a phone that has been a long time coming. Given how Motorola has mostly stayed with stock Android for its phones, it's a surprise the company took its time to join the Android One program. But the Motorola One Power is here now and it definitely looks more promising than some of the company's more recent offerings. It comes with a bright and vivid FHD display, a smooth Snapdragon processor and a fantastic battery life. But what's music to the ears is the promise of timely Android updates, which is something fans have been waiting for.

Motorola One and Motorola One Power First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Motorola One Power is slated to launch in India around October, and although we don’t have an exact price yet, we’re told that it should be under Rs. 15,000. If the Motorola One Power is as good as it looks on paper then it should give stiff competition to the Redmi Note 5 Pro (and the upcoming Redmi 6 series), but it would most likely cannibalize sales of the Moto G6 (Review). The Motorola One is priced at 299 Euros (roughly Rs. 24,000) and will be launching at some point in the months to come. However, given the features and specifications it offers, Lenovo is going to have a tough time convincing buyers in India, especially with options like the Poco F1 (Review) around.

Motorola One first impressions: Design not software has everyone talking
Source: The Indian Express English
Motorola One has launched in Europe for a price starting at EUR 299, which is roughly Rs 24,000. We are expecting the phone to launch in India with a lesser price tag. Nonetheless, Motorola One faces a strong competition from phones like Nokia 6.1 Plus and Xiaomi’s latest Poco F1, which is also the cheapest Android phone to offer Qualcomm’s top-end Snapdragon 845 processor. Stay tuned for our detailed review.

Minor hardware quibbles aside, on paper the Motorola One shows plenty of promise. For your money you get a variety of features traditionally reserved for more expensive phones, neatly contained in a premium-feeling, mixed metal and glass chassis.

Motorola Moto One initial review: Mid-ranger sports Android One
Source: Pocket Lint English
With all the rumours around the Moto One, there was a time when we thought it would be the stand-in new flagship for the brand. But that's not the case, instead think of this mid-ranger as a Moto G6 Plus with a notched screen and Android One software.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.  

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
0.16 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.
72.54%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
