Design

The new Motorola One Power is heavily built and it is clearly visible from its bulky body. The phone has some weight and you can feel it when you hold it but there is no issue in handling the phone thanks to its curvy body edges. The front fascia of the phone is dominated by its wide and tall screen with notch at the top. At the left side of the phone lies the SIM tray which can hold two SIM cards and one microSD card at the same time. To the right lies the power button and the volume rockers. At the top of the phone lies the w3.5mm headphone jack while at the bottom you can sport two speaker grilles with the USB Type-C port in between them. The rear  side of the Motorola one Power is completely different from rest of the Motorola phones which is, it does not have protruding camera sensor with its regular circular frame rather the new Motorola One Power has placed camera sensors vertically which is a new step towards change.  At the rear side you can also sport the fingerprint sensor which works very fast accurate.

Display

The new Motorola One Power has LTPS IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen of 6.2nch with 16M colors. The screen resolution of the phone is of 1080×2246 pixels with 403ppi density. The screen space is very big and the viewing angles are very wide as well thanks to the screen ratio of the phone which is 18.7:9. The display of the phone to some extent repels the direct light falling onto it which makes the screen visible under sunlight as well. The colors are very vibrant, vivid and punchy. The screen offers more than enough space to carry put any task or to enjoy your favourite games and movies. The screen of the phone is splash resistant as well plus the Corning Gorilla Glass makes sure that the screen is safe from any damage.

Cameras

The cameras of Motorola phones are not very much highlighted and stressed upon to get the attention of the users like other companies do but that does not mean that Motorola lacks the capability instead I have always found the camera of Motorola phones very inquisitive and no matter what the price range of the phones were the camera quality always stood up to the mark. The same goes with the Motorola One Power where it sports dual rear camera sensor of 16MP which is the primary sensor and has an aperture of f/1.8 and has PDAF as well whereas the secondary sensor is of 5MP with an aperture of f/2.2 and depth sensor. The shots captured by the rear camera are amazing with every detail falling into the frame. The quality of the images is very good and the daytime shots are of great quality and the autofocus automatically adjusts itself to give you clear shots. The images captured at night as compared to daytime lose a bit of that premium touch but still the images captured are very clear and crisp. The only graining effect which comes into play when you completely zoom in otherwise the images is of superior quality. The selfie camera of the phone is of 12MP with an aperture of f/2.0. The selfie cameras of Motorola phones when switched on displays your face from close proximity and Motorola One Power also does the same which somehow gives the real feel of how close you are holding the camera.  The selfie is very fluent and efficient in delivering great quality of selfies. If you are selfie lover and enjoys distinct taste in terms of quality and features then Motorola One Power is your deal. The advantage further increases with the selfie camera sporting front LED flash. The phone has face unlock feature as well which when tested while reviewing the phone worked very accurately even when there was no sufficient amount of light available.

Platform

The new Motorola One Power runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and the company has kept surprise attached in terms of Operating system which is it has planned upgrade to Android 9.0 Pie. The new Motorola one Power has Qualcomm SDM636 Snapdragon 636 with an octa-core of 1.8GHz Kryo 260. The processor of the phone performs very smoothly while handling any task, there was no lag in the processes and the multitasking was upto the mark as well. The phone does not seems to get heated up even  when put to utmost usage but a slight increase in the body heat is observed when you play big games like PUBG, Asphalt, COD. The phone is sporting 4GB which is sufficient enough to carry out any process in synchrony with the processor. The internal storage of the phone is of 64GB and it can be further expanded with the help of microSD card which can fit on the dedicated SDcard slot available in SIM tray.

Battery

The phone has immense battery power of 5,000mAh which you won’t find in any other phones ranging in the price range of Motorola One Power. The battery power of the phone is not easy to drain, you will get tired of using the phone but the phone won’t lose its power any shortly. The charging of the phone is supported by Turbo charger which charges the device in no time.

Conclusion

The Motorola One Power sits comfortably in the mid-segment with solid build quality, notch for the first time, a huge battery and stock Android 8.1 and upgradable to Pie. The camera performances are pleasant in most of the cases. The portrait mode works well too. The chipset has a fluidic run while engaged in multitasking. Games such as PUBG aren’t a problem either. The competition with Redmi Note 5 Pro and Nokia 6.1 Plus makes it a viable option at Rs 15,999.
