MOTO /\/\


The Moto M is the first phone from the company to feature a full metal unibody in this price range. Looking at its colour options, gold and silver, the company isn’t too wrong in marking it as a “glamorous” product.

Moto phones so far have carried sober looks both outside and inside, the Moto M also brings a new change to the lineup. Whether the change is a welcome one or not, we don’t know yet. We will know more about the latest Moto phone in the coming days but before that let’s take a quick look at everything that makes Moto M.


Processor: The Moto M is powered by 2.2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P15 processor.

RAM: The phone comes with 3GB and 4GB RAM options.

Internal storage: Moto M comes in two variants based on internal storage, 32GB and 64GB, which is further expandable up to 256GB using a microSD card.

Screen: 5.5-inch 2.5D curved display with 1080p resolution. The display has 404ppi pixel density.

Rear camera: The Moto M carries a 16-megapixel on the back. The rear camera supports phase detection autofocus and has dual-LED flash.

Front camera: It comes with an 8-megapixel camera up front.

Software: The phone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Battery: Moto M packs in a 3,050mAh battery.

The 5.5-inch full-HD screen is crisp, and the speakers have Dolby Atmos sound enhancement for added depth and richness. This is the first Moto phone to have Dolby Atmos, but we’ve seen it on several Lenovo models. In our short time with the unit, we were able to run an Atmos demo, and both the screen and the speakers were impressive. We will have to reserve final judgment till we can review the Moto M both indoors and outdoors, with our standard test content.  

The power and volume buttons are on the right, and there’s a fingerprint sensor on the rear just where your index finger rests. Above it, there’s an oval bump for the camera and flash. The battery is sealed in, but has a capacity of 3,050mAh. Rapid charging is also supported. The phone takes two Nano-SIMs, but has a hybrid tray which means that you have to sacrifice the second SIM if you want to use a microSD card.

There’s a 16-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus, and an 8-megapixel front camera. There’s a selfie beautification mode in the camera app too. The processor is a 2.2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P15. You get Android 6.0.1 with thankfully no modifications, and the interface is beautifully sparse and fluid.
