Motorola One Power Pros

Great battery life

One of the best features of this smartphone is the massive battery. 5000 mAh battery with fast charging support is the great inclusion. In our my review period, the battery was easily lasting 2 days.

Good performance

Snapdragon 636 with 4GB of RAM and stock Android provides good performance. It may be a gaming or multitasking phone was able to run smoothly. However, the device got little hot while playing graphics intensive games such as PUBG for more than 45 minutes. Overall for the price segment, performance is satisfactory.

Decent Display

Motorola One Power sports 6.2 inch LTPS IPS display with full-HD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Viewing angles are good. Brightness is decent enough to legible even in outdoors. There is an option to tweak color temperature.


As it is part of the Android One programme, it provides stock Android experience and no bloatware. The device is expected to get timely security updates for the next 3 years and Android updates for the next 2 years.

Motorola One Power Cons

No Dual 4G  support

On this device, only one sim card works on 4G and the other one is restricted to 3G. So users cannot use 4G VOLTE calls on both the sim cards simultaneously.

Little Slow Fingerprint scanner

The fingerprint scanner is slightly slow compared to some of the other similar priced phones.

No Stabilisation for Video recording

Motorola One Power has neither optical stabilization nor electronic stabilization. Hence Video output looks shaky.

Low light camera performance could have been better

Motorola One Power camera performance in well-lit conditions came out good. However, low light photography is not satisfactory.
