Even though Motorola is not the dominant maker it once was it was never afraid to innovate and push the envelope. The company is even looking to release a foldable phone, reviving the RAZR series, but that doesn't mean it's overlooking its midrange lineup. The company wants to stay up to date with the current trends and offer a rare set of features for the asking price and it delivered the Motorola One Vision.
The One Vision brings a lot of firsts to the Motorola lineup. 21:9 aspect ratio, punch-hole selfie camera and a Samsung-made chipset - the Exynos 9609 - are all new to Moto phones. And it's all wrapped inside a stylish package without departing too far from the typical Motorola design. You can easily tell from afar that this is a Motorola-made handset and that's certainly not a bad thing.
Much like the recently released Sony Xperia smartphones, Motorola puts emphasis on the tall 21:9 screen, which we found to be particularly useful for scrolling through social media feeds and multi-tasking. Oh, and of course, when watching 21:9 content on Netflix and YouTube.
The 48MP rear main camera is another big selling point of the One Vision. Naturally, the sensor employs a Quad-Bayer filter combining four pixels into one outputting a 12MP image but with native HDR and boosted low-light performance.

In addition to the handset itself, the charging brick and USB-A to USB-C cable and the usual user manuals, the box also hosts a transparent silicone protective case and a pair of Motorola-branded earbuds. However, we've been told that the buds will only be available in Brazil.
Does it have fingerprint gestures like Samsung phones?
Battery life might get better over time under a clean Android Pie. Also there are two versions of the 48MP sensor floating around the mid-range, Sony & Samsung. Suspect it's the latter on this phone. I rocked with a Moto G6 Plus for a good w...
