While Moto One Power sure has some powerful specs, Moto still managed to make it look appealing with a minimum bezel on the front. The rear side is made of metal, which is still an interesting compromise when compared to the glass back found on other smartphones. The metal back is also prone to smudges but it is still better than having on a glass back. It also has curved edges and corners, making it feel really good in the hands. The Moto One power fits 6.2-inch display on a 5.5inch smartphone form factor. However, it does have a notch on the top and a bezel at the bottom with Motorola logo embedded in it. Also, the device weighs 205g, so it’s clearly not the lightest device around.
On to the really exciting part, the Moto One Power is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor with 6GB RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. The Snapdragon 636 is absolutely the best mid-range chipset for a smartphone. It can handle basic tasks really well. From social media apps to browsing on chrome. Even multitasking performs well, thanks to 6GB of RAM. In gaming, I played PUBG and the device was able to handle it smoothly. However, you need to keep the graphics settings at Low to make sure frame rates stay high for a better experience. The major highlight of the device is the software and battery. Instead of its existing stock-style ROM, Moto went with Android One running Android 8.1. The biggest advantage of Android One is the device will receive new software updates and security patches straight from google. While the device is running Android One, it comes with pure stock UI with Google’s application and no bloatware apps. The phone weighs 205 grams, all because of a massive 5000mAh battery. With a full charge, the device runs more than a day with an average user that includes casual gaming, multitasking, social media apps, etc.

Motorola supplies a 15W Turbo Charger to charge the massive 5000 mAh battery. It took nearly 2.5 hours to charge the battery from 0 to 100 per cent which is pretty much decent considering the size of the battery. With casual browsing, sending a text on WhatsApp, playing music and Steaming Video on YouTube – the device easily lasts for a day and a half or max up to two days.

The Moto One Power is pegged as the most value-oriented smartphones at mid-range segment directly competing with Redmi Note 5 and RealMe 2 Pro. I’m definitely impressed with its long day battery life and Android One program with frequent updates straight from Google. While it offers good battery, it does adds additional weight which cannot be unnoticed.
