The Moto One and Moto One Power are Motorola’s latest addition to its fledgling Android One series, promising users a perfect, direct Android involvement with solid, quick access to platform updates.
At first look, the two Smartphones may put on a show of being truly comparable, generally following indistinguishable styles from what we’ve seen in other latest Moto smartphones. However, there are some outstanding contrasts in both designs and specification.
The Moto One is a little smaller than the Moto One Power, sporting a 5.9-inch display with a resolution of just 720 x 1520, It’s powered by a Snapdragon 625 chip. This device enjoys 4GB of RAM, and offers 64GB of internal storage, expandable with a microSD card. It has a dual camera setup and a 3,000 mAh battery.
The Moto One Power takes things up a notch, packing in a Snapdragon 636 chip with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It also supports memory expansion with a microSD card. There’s additionally a bigger display of 6.2-inches with full HD (1080 x 2246). It also enjoys an essentially bigger battery than the Moto One, with a capacity of 5,000mAh.
What truly leaves an impression, however, is the decision Motorola made toward the materials it utilized. The Moto One is a glass sandwich, and perhaps it was only the cruel expo lighting doing its work, but this Smartphone is a flat-out unique fingerprint magnet. The Moto One gets a slightly smaller, lower-resolution screen than the Moto One Power. But even though the difference in size is not much, the supporting battery capacity is sufficiently different.
In spite of packing a wide notch-toting display and a glass/metal design, the Moto One has a less expensive surface on the back that considerably feels like plastic. Conversely, the Moto One Power’s matte surface feels considerably more premium.
Also worthy of note is the fact even though the two Smartphones have dual camera designs, the Moto One Power is said to be the better of the two, but they’re of the not-incredibly-useful depth-effect variety — no wide-angle/zoom option, or similarly attractive arrangement. Integration with Google Lens is nice, but this is probably barely not enough motivation to get either device.
