Motorola One and Motorola One Power First Impressions new Android One devices and massive battery

Motorola has introduced two new Android One devices at the ongoing IFA show in Berlin: Motorola One and Motorola One Power. The latter is geared towards the Indian market and will be launching in October, 2018. For now, the expected price will be under Rs 15,000, though Motorola will only confirm pricing when the device is officially unveiled.

Motorola One and Motorola One Power First Impressions

Lenovo announced new PCs and smart devices across multiple product lines on the eve of IFA 2018, but saved some surprises as well. We are talking about the Motorola One and Motorola One Power smartphones, which were unveiled on the first day of the electronics trade show in Berlin. The two new phones follow the Motorola P30’s design, with screen notches and vertical dual-camera setups on their rears. Both use stock Android, and are part of Google’s Android One programme. We were present at IFA 2018 and had a chance to spend some time with these new devices.



We start with the Motorola One, which is the more striking of the two thanks to its glass back and slimmer profile. We found it easier to manage with one hand, although the back attracts a lot of fingerprints very easily. The borders around the display aren’t very narrow so your fingers don’t accidentally touch the screen when you hold this phone. It has a sizable chin at the bottom as well, where Lenovo has put the Motorola logo. The notch isn’t too deep but it’s quite wide on the top, which is what makes it resemble the Apple iPhone X (Review) a lot. The fingerprint sensor is placed under the ‘M’ logo at the back of the phone, just like we've seen recently on the Moto G6 Play (Review) and Moto E5 Plus (Review).

Motorola One Power is definitely a unique looking Android One device. With a 5,000mAh battery on board, this offers something no other Android One device does so far. In comparison, the Mi A2 has a 3000 mAh battery on board, which is also an Android One phone being sold in India. Of course, such a big battery size also comes with cons.

Motorola One Power definitely looks and feel like a bulky device thanks to this huge battery size. In the demo zone, the One Power easily stood out because of its sheer size. Still, the metal unibody design does give it a premium look and feel. Unlike the Motorola One, which has glossy back finish, the One Power has a better grip to offer, which is certainly an advantage.

When it comes to the display and design from the front, the Motorola One Power and One do look very similar, though the former is wider. Using this device with one hand might be a challenge for some users, given the size. Both phones also come with notched displays. The One Power has a full HD+ resolution display, which is sharper than the Motorola One that sports an HD+ display.

From a design perspective, the Motorola One Power might remind you of several other phones in the market, given the vertically aligned dual-rear cameras, the notched display. And yes it does come with Android One branding at the back along with the “M” of the Motorola logo.
Another advantage of this being an Android One phone is that software updates are assured for the next two years. The big question though is when and how soon? Motorola’s record on software updates has not been great, especially in India, despite stock Android.
The Motorola One Power looks similar to Motorola One from the front. There’s a notch on the top, a chin at the bottom, and not-so narrow borders on the sides. The glass back has been ditched for plastic or polycarbonate, which makes it easier to keep clean but lacks the premium feel of the Motorola One. The camera module is designed a bit differently too, and features a 16-megapixel main sensor with a 5-megapixel depth sensor. It also has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which at the moment, appears to be the only configuration.

While neither model offers anything groundbreaking in terms of design or features, the fact that they are part of the Android One programme might make all the difference to some potential buyers. We understand that custom UIs have some benefits, but they usually means longer waits for software updates, which is still an issue in the budget and mainstream segment. Android One ensures that both of these Motorola phones will get Android Pie as well as Android Q updates from Google, plus security updates for the next three years.
The Motorola One Power is slated to launch in India around October, and although we don’t have an exact price yet, we’re told that it should be under Rs. 15,000. If the Motorola One Power is as good as it looks on paper then it should give stiff competition to the Redmi Note 5 Pro (and the upcoming Redmi 6 series), but it would most likely cannibalize sales of the Moto G6 (Review). The Motorola One is priced at 299 Euros (roughly Rs. 24,000) and will be launching at some point in the months to come. However, given the features and specifications it offers, Lenovo is going to have a tough time convincing buyers in India, especially with options like the Poco F1 (Review) around.
