Motorola One Vision review: The queen of the mid-range phones

Last updated:  

The Moto One Vision manages to cram a lot of great features into a mid-range price point, though we expected more from the battery.

  • Impressive photos for this price
  • Fast processor
  • Rear fingerprint sensor is quick
  • Hole-punch camera isn't for everybody
  • Battery life doesn't live up to the 3,500mAh capacity
  • 21:9 aspect ratio doesn't really add to the device

Motorola One Vision

Motorola has seen a lot of success in Australia with its G-Series line-up, targeting the mid range with affordable models that offer great bang for your buck. It's a strategy that it's hoping to continue with the One Vision, the company's first Android One device in Australia.

By blending the pure Android OS (Android Pie comes standard) with a Samsung processor and an impressive dual 48-megapixel and 5-megapixel rear camera array, Motorola promises to deliver impressive performance for a sub-$500 smartphone.


Design

  • 21:9 aspect ratio
  • Hole-punch front camera
  • Camera bump on the rear camera
  • Rear fingerprint sensor works well

Performance

  • Samsung's processor offers decent performance
  • VoLTE on Telstra and Vodafone
  • Solid enough performance for comfortable gaming sessions

Battery life

  • 3,500mAh battery is fine, without being spectacular
  • No wireless charging
  • Fast charger in the box is great, but other chargers are pretty slow

Verdict

  • Impressive night camera on a mid-range phone
  • Battery life disappoints, but not enough to keep you away
