MEET MOTOROLA’S LATEST 2016 RELEASE: THE MID-RANGE MOTO Mby Rajshree Faria December 13, 2016
Changing its hands since 2011, Motorola has come a long way since it was a part of Motorola Inc. Acquired by Google and currently owned by Lenovo, Motorola has impressed millions right from its RAZR days. So, now when there is a new Motorola phone waiting to make its appearance in the market, there is a dedicated audience waiting with bated breath. So, is the latest from Lenovo-owned Motorola worth the wait? Let’s find out what the Chicago-headquartered brand has in store for the users with its new mid-range phone, Moto M.
Unveiled to the world today with much fanfare, the Moto M looks promising. First things first; the smartphone sports a 5.5-inch full HD screen with a 2.5D curved glass design to add to the aesthetics of the display as well as prevent any annoying sharp edges from interfering with your otherwise fluid screen navigation. The screen will complement the built-in Dolby ATMOS support for an excellent media experience.
Users will be able to watch movies & videos, play music & games without any glitches or lags, courtesy of the octa-core MediaTek Helio P15 processor clocking at an impressive 2.2GHz. The 4GB of RAM is sufficient enough to keep switching between apps so as not to frustrate the user. The phone looks good with 32GB and 64GB of internal storage to store all your important apps while the 256GB of expandable memory can be used to store all your media and documents.
Motorola has kept aesthetics one of the priorities with the Moto M; the elegant looking device sports an aluminium unibody design which makes the phone look like one solid device. Moto M is the first Motorola smartphone to incorporate a fingerprint sensor in the back panel which makes it ergonomically convenient.
The Moto M will include a 16MP primary camera with PDAF and dual-LED flash so that all your pictures have the best clarity possible with the phone. Clicking random selfies, video chatting with colleagues, friends, or family will be smooth with the 8MP front camera.
Understanding how much the average user multitasks with a smartphone these days, the makers of Moto M have included a powerful 3050mAh battery in the phone. It also supports fast charging in case you are short on time but high on smartphone need. The USB Type-C port ensures that your connectivity options are many. Indulge in some brilliant technology of today with NFC, a feature that Moto M supports.
With support for 4G, downloading apps on the Android Marshmallow phone will be a quick process. An update to Android Nougat is on the cards, so all those who are looking for a mid-range phone with the latest iteration of Android won’t have to look very far.
All in all, the Moto M appears to be a great phone with some of the best-in-class specs (except for the processor; a Snapdragon would have been more loved) coming with a very VERY competitive price tag.
If you think this Moto is for you, grab it exclusively at Flipkart starting tomorrow @ 11.59 p.m. for Rs.15,999.
