But turn on night mode, and it works on brightness and colours are more saturated. I would not say it is a better shot – just a brighter one.
25/6.2MP has heaps of colour, but details are softer. There is no screen or fill flash, and fixed focus means hold it at arm’s length and still.
The rear camera has a dedicated 5MP depth camera and its perfect for bokeh. The front camera uses post-processing and can lack sharpness around the foreground face image.
4k is more than acceptable, but you need a steady hand. 1K is almost perfect. You can shoot and live upload to YouTube.
GadgetGuy’s take – Motorola One Vision is a class-leading mass-market
It is one of the more accomplished mass-market phones offering some specifications found for a few hundred dollars more. It is up against the Oppo Reno Z, Nokia 7.1 and Samsung A50 – all worthy competitors. I suspect the Motorola name may pull some weight here.
It offers a good, all-around camera, processor and Pure Android One performance. But its lack of any one outstanding design or performance feature could see you overlook it – don’t. I have been more than impressed in two weeks of testing and use.
My only nit-picks are the average screen (could be better) but perhaps I expect too much from a $499 device. And the camera is capable of so much more. I suspect Motorola could improve both of these by a firmware update.
As an experiment Motorola One Vision has worked well
Possibly to the detriment of the good, old, reliable, almost bulletproof, g7 series – but hey things change so let’s see what the g8 brings. GadgetGuy has reviewed the g7 Power here and was impressed with a 5000mAh battery for a paltry $349. The g7 and g7 Plus are $399/499 and are reviewed here and scored 4.9-out-of-5 for the mass market.
The One Vision is as good but in
Price Motorola One Vision
At $499 and it is up against the Nokia 7.1 ($449), Samsung Galaxy A50 ($499), OPPO Reno Z ($499), and Huawei P30 Lite (more on that another time).
If I were spending $499, I would be sorely tempted by the OPPO Reno Z if only for the AMOLED screen and 8/128GB ram/storage, similar 48/5MP camera and 4000mAh fast charge battery. But the lack of a MicroSD slot and its Color OS 6 User Interface would strongly sway me back to the Motorola.
