- Analysis by KJ David
As made obvious by its name, the Motorola One Power is a big brother of the One with way more raw battery power in the tank, shooting for a spot in Phonerated's list of the best high-endurance phones with its large 5000mAh battery . Its huge cell is accompanied by Motorola's trademark 15W TurboPower charging technology , which claims to restore up to 6 hours of mixed usage in just a 15-minute charge. Note, though, that its big battery makes this 6.2-incher a literal heavyweight as well, weighing in at 205 grams , whereas the average smartphone weighed only around 155g as we were reviewing its technical specs.
Despite its pros on the stamina front, the One Power is still tainted by some cons, the biggest of which is the fact that it runs on a slower processor versus what the original Motorola One has -- it is powered by a Snapdragon 636 eight-core 1.8GHz processor, while its sibling phone runs on a 2GHz eight-core engine. Its accompanying hardware specs, which include a 4GB RAM and a 430MHz Adreno 509 graphics engine, far from place it alongside the fastest phones on the market as well, although they are not that surprising, coming from a 2018 mid-ranger.
Fortunately for this high-stamina version of the Motorola One, it comes with an upgraded dual-lens system, in the form of a 16- plus 5-megapixel setup that captures 4K-2160p videos and is aided by a dual-LED CCT (color correlated temperature) flash -- the plain model touts 13- and 2-megapixel lenses only. In the same manner, the One's 8-megapixel-only selfie cam was upgraded to a 12-megapixel shooter , which, although won't have it rubbing elbows with the best phones for selfies any time soon, sounds just about right, considering its overall profile of pros and cons.
The One Power greets users with a 6.2-inch LTPS-IPS FHD+ (2246 x 1080) 19:9 display , while a 64GB internal memory expandable by a maximum of 256GB is on storage duties. Like several of its cousins under Motorola's 2018 catalog, it comes with a P2i water-resistant coating and it is offered in a classic Black finish.
So, as far as its technical pros and cons are concerned, the One Power is a middle-class smartphone for power-cautious buyers who aren't quite ready to reach for a full-blown flagship Android.
