Motorola is no new player in the smartphone world. Fun fact, they were the first to come up with the world’s first mobile phone. Back in 1973 when these devices used to weigh 2Kg. Today’s market landscape looks a lot different. Most of the commotion is in the mid-range section. Clearly, Motorola wants a piece of that pie as well. It’s recent mid-ranger the Motorola One Fusion Plus is here to compete with fierce competitors like Samsung Galaxy M31s.
Specs and Highlights
Motorola One Fusion Plus comes with a 6.5-inch FHD screen with HDR10 certification. This high-resolution screen is paired with the loud bottom-firing sound system that allows users to play high-quality videos on the phone without affecting its picture and sound quality. Moreover, Motorola One Fusion+ features four cameras consisting of 24MP primary sensors along with 8MP UW angle, 5MP macro, and 2MP depth sensors at the back and a pop-up camera of 16MP at the front.
This device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G chip system with My UX Android 10. Another unique feature of this phone is that it runs on clean stock Android, which makes sure that users won’t face any preinstalled bloatware. This device has a battery backup of 5000mAh which comes along with the 18W Turbocharger. It comes with a single variant of 6GB RAM with 128GB of storage memory. The memory is expandable up to 1TB with a microSD card. Sadly, it’s a hybrid slot so you’ll have to compromise the sim card for the expandable memory.
Design and Build Quality
Motorola is continuing their design language from the previous One series phones. The back looks a lot like the Motorola One Action, Motorola One Macro, and the Motorola Moto G8 Plus. The same quad-camera module placement and the same signatory fingerprint sensor placement with the “M” ingrained inside. What’s different is the polycarbonate back that has a great looking finish. Although it’s glossy by touch, there’s a textured finish beneath the top layer that makes it look like the Motorola G3 from the back. This texture accentuates when light falls upon the back of the device.
The device is hefty. It weighs 210 gm which is a lot for something that has to stay in your hand for long periods of time. Moreover, the size of the device doesn’t help either. It’s 9.6 mm thick without the camera bump. Although the tapered edges help with the grip which compensates for the thickness. There is a dedicated button for google assistant which is a nice feature to see in this price range. About the buttons, Motorola has decided to put all the buttons on one side and keep the other completely smooth. This would have been fine if there were only volume rockers and power button. But the addition of a third button has made the device look congested on one side.
Our thoughts are clear. It’s an amazing device. Easy to recommend and fun to use. If you’re looking for a sleek-looking device and don’t mind carrying a 210 gm device then go for it. Moreover, a dedicated Google Assistant button, a stock android experience, and a no-notch display are some alluring factors too. But if you’re on the other side of the pop-up camera debate and can’t stand the size and weight of the device then there are plenty more options to choose from.
