“The Motorola One Vision is a well-rounded mid-ranger with dual rear cameras, amazing night vision mode, a punch-hole display, and a tall 21:9 aspect ratio”

Last month, Motorola launched its latest mid-range smartphone, the Motorola One Vision, in India. This is the first phone in India to be available with a tall 21:9 aspect ratio. It is also the first Motorola phone to come with a 48-megapixel rear camera, a punch-hole display, and a 25MP selfie shooter. With these firsts, it’s evident that it’s a loaded smartphone. And if you are wondering what makes the handset a good buy, then read on to find out why the One Vision should be on your shortlist in the sub-Rs 20k segment.

A 21:9 cinema-vision display


The Motorola One Vision comes with a 6.3-inch display with a full HD+ resolution and a tall aspect ratio of 21:9. Due to this aspect ratio, the phone has a rather tall chassis and is one of its characteristic features. As per the brand, the display provides a more immersive viewing experience, while making it easier to scroll through your Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter feed. The LCD panel features a punch-hole on the top-left corner. This hole isn’t really a distraction when watching full-screen videos and the display offers good brightness, and viewing angle along with featuring the Widevine L1 certifications.

Quad-pixel tech for front and rear cameras


Motorola has included a dual rear camera setup on the One Vision. The primary 48-megapixel sensor on the back is a Samsung GM1 unit, which boasts optical image stabilisation and quad-pixel tech. Thanks to OIS, you should get clearer and sharper photos and videos which compensate for hand movements. The quad-pixel tech combines four pixels into one to provide a sharp 12-megapixel photo. The combination of wide f/1.7 aperture, optical image stabilisation and night vision mode, the Motorola One Vision is the only phone under Rs 20k to offer such camera capabilities.

Interestingly, the phone also features quad-pixel tech for the selfie camera, which is a 25-megapixel unit. With the help of this tech, the camera produces 6MP photos with minimal noise. This means that even the selfies taken with the One Vision are going to be sharp and full of details.

Class-leading Night Vision


Motorola has included a Night Vision feature in the camera app. Once again, with the help of OIS and the f/1.7 aperture on the primary 48-megapixel sensor, the One Vision captures really good low-light photos that can compete with phones costing twice as much. The Night Vision takes multiple photos at different exposure levels, and combines them into one bright and sharp image.

Tip: it is best to hold the phone very still when using the Night Vision mode, as this can help reduce blur.

Android One goodness


The Motorola One Vision is part of the Android One family. It runs on stock Android 9.0 Pie, which means there’s no bloatware on the phone. You do get some of Motorola’s features such as Moto Actions and Moto Display, which are quite useful. Furthermore, the phone will be receiving two Android updates and security patches for three years.

A powerful hardware

The One Vision doesn’t just have a good design, display, and cameras, but it also has solid internals under the hood. The phone is powered by the Octa-core Samsung Exynos 9609 processor, which is paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage. This is enough to play games such as PUBG without any lag. Of course, you wouldn’t face any issues under normal usage either.

Motorola has included a 3,500mAh battery on the One Vision and it supports 15W fast charging. The phone provides a day’s worth of usage on a single charge.

With a price tag of Rs 19,999, the Motorola One Vision is available to buy on Flipkart. As you can see, the Motorola has ensured that its latest offering packs in everything that a prospective buyer is looking for these days — an immersive display, powerful cameras, and good hardware, all backed by a smooth user interface.
