As mentioned earlier, the design of the Motorola One is very popular. Mirror screen With a large notch The back cover is a mirror with shine. The fingerprints are simple. But can be easily wiped out as well

The body weight is 162 grams, light enough to hold with one hand comfortably. But in the author’s personal sense compared to the design of the Moto e5 Plus that had previously been reviewed With the back cover that has a curved handle and gives a tight feel when in the hand rather than the flat back cover of the Motorola One

The Motorola One screen has a 5.9-inch HD + resolution (1520 x 720 pixels) when encountering extreme light conditions. Can fight light well to a certain extent Still, see the app And the text on the screen There is also an Always On Display feature that displays the date, time, battery status. And various notifications Automatic while the screen is off

Buttons and ports around the device include the machine’s edge, the right side is the volume adjustment button. Next is the power button, the left edge is SIM tray can insert 2 SIMs + microSD card at the same time

The top edge of the machine is a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The bottom edge is the speaker box with USB Type-C port.

Motorola One uses Snapdragon 625 ^(https://www.qualcomm.com/products/snapdragon-625-mobile-platform)chips, GP Adreno 506, 4GB RAM ^(https://www.ithubpk.com/2018/04/oppo-f7-youth-vs-motorola-moto-g6-4gb.html) and 64GB storage as a midrange smartphone. Comes with Android 8.1 Oreo operating system with a unique identifier that is also focused on Pure Android. In Thailand, there is no sign of being updated to the Android 9 Pie as well as the security patches around November 2018. Despite previous news that Motorola released updates The latest Android version

The Moto Gesture order model also comes with Moto Action and Moto Display, which are available in just a few applications like all previous models.

With a mid-range specification, commonly used like Facebook, LINE, Instagram, YouTube / Netflix viewing can be used comfortably. As for the gameplay that the author tested, Asphalt 8 and Infinity Ops, it was found that the response to the press was fast. Still found no stumbling strokes during play, slow heat And the image of the game will not show up to the notch

Fingerprint scanner

Motorola One embeds a fingerprint sensor with the Motorola logo on the back of the device. Just tap and can scan and unlock the screen, even when the screen is off. However, if our fingers get wet, they can’t scan.

Camera

The Motorola One’s rear camera is a 13 million pixel dual lens, f / 2.0 + 2 million pixel aperture, f / 2.4 aperture, LED flash, with portrait mode. Supports video shooting at the highest resolution of 4K.

In actual shooting, it was found that the timing of capture in normal lighting conditions was fast. The color of the image is natural. Not too fresh or pale But must admit that night photography is not as good as it should be If zooming in the night photos, still find a lot of spots on the image. And the color of the image at night is quite pale and the surrounding light is slightly cloudy.

Battery

Motorola One has a battery capacity of 3000 mAh. But also comes with a TurboPower fast charging system that Motorola claims to be able to charge 15 minutes, can use 4.5 hours from the actual charging while the battery is less than 20%, charging for about 30 minutes. The fast charging system allows the battery to be used. For an additional 6-7 hours

In addition, general use, such as checking emails, opening Facebook, LINE chat, the battery can last up to 1 day, but if using both playing a lot of photography games, then there must be a power bank to carry it with.

Final Words
The thing that Motorola One is trying to highlight is the Android One that guarantees many operating system updates and monthly security patches. Including the flow during use But not sure when the machine sold in Thailand will update the Android 9 Pie

For use, if the user is not specific about the advanced features Or taking pictures that require high contrast. Motorola One is considered a mid-range smartphone that meets the basic needs of Facebook, LINE, Instagram, YouTube / Netflix.

The price is also equally interesting. Motorola One and the price of 7,990 baht, although the price is ten thousand. But when looking at the competitors at the same price, it is considered that Motorola One is hard to find in the market. For example, the Huawei Y9 2019 is featured with a 6.5 inch screen size that is larger than the FHD + display resolution (2340 × 1080 Pixels), front camera 16 + 2 megapixels and rear 13 + 2 megapixels, 4 combinations, with AI to help take pictures, battery 4000 mAh and price 6,990 baht, which is cheaper than Motorola One (Price from Huawei’s official store In Lazada)

Or will be another version of the Xiaomi Mi A2 ^(https://www.mi.com/global/mi-a2/). The screen size is 5.99 inches, close to the Motorola One. Full HD + display, Snapdragon 660 chip, 20+ 12 megapixels rear camera, 20-megapixel front camera, battery 3010 mAh, the price is equal to Motorola One, but the specification is quite superior in many points.
