In the last weeks, we were testing two Motorola phones. The One Vision and the One Action. They are quite similar phones in terms of appearance and hardware but differ in their main objective. The One Vision is focused on being a mid-range phone with good photography features, particularly the night one, while the Action points to the video.
This entry will be dedicated to One Vision, and soon there will be a new one focused on One Action. All the photos in this post were taken with the One Vision and were not processed with any image editor. Only the file size was reduced so it doesn’t take long to load.
ONE VISION, FOCUS ON PHOTOGRAPHY
Motorola has already focused on premium mid-range phones for several years. An example of this is the G line, which is already on version 7 and has different differentials in each of its models, such as a better camera, larger capacity battery, etc.
In the case of the One line, which is launched within the Android One program – which guarantees at least two major updates and fairly clean experience in terms of applications added by the manufacturer – Motorola began to adopt a similar policy of differentiation. In the case of One Vision, it focuses on photography thanks to its dual camera, but without losing focus on the mid-range. Recently they launched another model, the One Zoom, with 4 cameras, which also focuses on photography, but whose price is well above the One Vision.
After several weeks of use, you have to dial some relevant points on the phone. The first is that there is a lot of work in night photography. Very good results are obtained in low light, although sometimes the image turns a lot towards the warm ones, in particular, the red one. But its operation is far superior to other phones of similar prices. In particular for travel, the phone is really useful for taking night photos in cities, a point where many phones do not have good features.
To take these photos, the back combines two cameras. One of 48 megapixels with an aperture of 1.7 along with another of 5 megapixels and 2.2 of aperture. The selfie camera is 25 megapixels and with a field-wide enough to photograph groups.
Another important point: it has optical stabilizer for images, something that also extends to video – although in this case only to HD 1080p since stabilization is a combination of hardware and software that cuts the image to eliminate vibration. This stabilization is important when taking pictures at night since it prevents the photos from moving.
Beyond the theme photos, there are other points to highlight from the phone. First of all, the screen has a fairly rare size so far, but we will surely see a lot in the future: 6.3 inches, with a 21: 9 format of 1080 by 2520 pixels. The result is a very long but comfortable phone to hold. This screen size is very interesting for watching movies or playing.
The front camera is just a circle in the upper left: if we add very thin bezels, we will have a phone that is almost all screen in a not so large size.
Another advantage is that it brings an infrequent storage capacity: 128gb. It is a lot of space, even if we take lots of photos and videos. To that, you can add up to a microSD card of up to 1TB.
RAM is more standard for a premium mid-range phone: 4GB. The same goes for the battery; With 3500mAh it is enough for a workday, but it is a fairly common type of configuration. Like other Motorola phones, it has a fast charge that allows you to get out of very low battery situations in a few minutes.
More information about the Motorola One Vision on the Motorola Argentina website. At the time of writing this entry, the phone cost 30 thousand pesos. We were able to review it because Motorola sent us the device.
