Motorola has started rolling out the AndroidTM 9 Pie software OTA update to its recently launched Motorola One Power smartphone. Having spent some time using the Motorola One Power, I have come to the conclusion that this no-nonsense, powerful and long-lasting smartphone is a good bet for today’s professionals on the move. Entrepreneurial. Impatient. Idealist. Demanding. Energetic. Restless. Passionate. Those who like to go beyond the dazzle, and look and love the finer details. Those, who expect so much more from their smartphones. They are everywhere. They are redefining the boundaries of personal and professional work-life. Welcome to the Always-on generation. It is this demographic that the Motorola One Power is meant for, and caters to.
As a legendary brand, Motorola always evokes memories of the bold, brilliant and distinctive design philosophy that has marked its smartphones. The Motorola One Power is a welcome addition to the Moto family. The One Power is a unique, made for India smartphone, and its first ever Android One device.
Pure Android experience through the Android One software is a key draw for the demographic that I talked about earlier. The pure Android software experience also promises zero bloat, and comes with a guarantee of two years of the latest Android software updates as well as monthly security patches to boot. What one gets is a smart and sleek experience. The Moto One Power sports an entirely new UI with redesigned quick settings alongwith a fresh intuitive navigation mechanism. In addition, the Android update helps with simplified volume controls and an improved Do Not Disturb mode. Not to forget, it comes with an easier mechanism to manage notifications. Not to forget, Google Assistant and Google Lens are pre-loaded.
In terms of design aesthetics, the Motorola One Power sports a glass-over-aluminum frame with the rear fingerprint sensor housed in the Motorola logo. The design philosophy conveys a sense of all about driving efficiencies, rather than just a pretty packaging. The Motorola One Power comes with an immersive 6.2 inch large Max Vision HD+ display screen in 19:9 aspect ratio. Powered by the Snapdragon 636, Motorola One Power ensures a glitch-free and seamless experience while on-the-go, or while playing games, watching movies.
The dual camera module on the One Power has a 16-megapixel primary sensor with an f/2.0 aperture. The secondary lens comes in at 5 megapixels and has a f/2.0 aperture. On the front, it sports an 8MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture, which supports portrait mode. The camera comes with Photo, Video, Portrait, and Expert modes to choose from. Motorola One Power delivers consistently good photographs, with decent details, under various light conditions. The camera experience through the Android 9 Pie update is improved and delivers.
Lastly, lets circle back to the always-on youth of today. Professionals or Gamers. They expect so much more from their phones. That’s where the Motorola One Power delivers exceptionally well, with its massive 5000mAh battery. On full charge, the battery lasts long. Within 15 minutes, it can be charged using the Motorola TurboPower charger.
At INR 15, 999, the Motorola One Power is a good bet for those who demand relentless performance, and expect no compromises. This is a smartphone for the go-getters who are always on the move, and do not have any respite, to keep charging their device. Beyond the Moto enthusiasts, the Motorola One Power will appeal to those who prefer performance over ‘packaging’, and simple over ‘sleek’.
