Hey guys, welcome back Gsmarena. So you just saw a very quick unboxing of the Motorola One Action smartphone device. I am not a huge smartphone reviewer. So I was super surprised to get this guy in the lab to test it out for you guys for me to review a smartphone. We have our safety guide as well as a spin which allows you to eject the slot. So you can insert your sim as well as your micro SD card which supports up to one terabyte. It also has a USB two type C cable and also your 10-watt charger adapter. Like I said before this phone was used a lot with my son. He fell in love with it he thought he was his to keep he was playing all kinds of games the performance is pretty well the weight on this particular Motorola One Action smartphone is around 0.40 pounds. The thickness of it is around 0.34 inches. the price tag for this particular phone is around$349 this phone is advertising two colors. I actually got the pearl white, you’re also able to get the blue edition.
I really liked the blue edition rather than the white edition also. So the Lenovo hooked me up with a plastic clear cover this cover does not come within the box so it’s an additional accessory that you have to purchase. But it’s really nice that they gave me it just to make sure it doesn’t get scratched up. One of the cool things about the Motorola One Action is that a comes unlocked so that allows you to use T-Mobile Verizon or AT& T or any carrier that you have just inserted your SIM card and bam it starts working with no problem if you have the smartphone facing you to the point that you are able to see the display. On your right-hand side, we have a power button as well as our volume buttons. On your left-hand side, you don’t have any buttons The only thing that you have is your SIM card slot which allows you to hook up your SIM card or your micro SD. At the very bottom of the phone, you have your type C connection which allows you to hook up your power adapter to charge it as well as a Type C or USB cable to hook it up to your computer to transfer or get files from the SD card right next to the Type C port you have your speaker at the very top of the display you will see a 3.5-millimeter jack which allows you to hook up and headphone it’s pretty cool to have a phone with this feature up here but the majority of us normally has like Bluetooth device to listen to music.
Now to power on the device again like I said on the right-hand side there is the power button. There are many ways to log into this phone which is pretty cool. One way is the fingerprint scanner which is located right here in the back. You are able to unlock the phone using the front camera with your face. You have the traditional ways to log into the phone with a pin or password or like a pattern which is well known within the Android world. Alright, so we just went over some of the ports on the Motorola One Action smartphone How about the display so the display size is around6.35 inches IPS with a resolution of 1980 by 2520 with a PPI or pixel per inch or 430which is really good when you’re viewing a video or playing games which my son loved it for real seriously he thought it was his when I gave it to him to play around with. So for the brightness level, I think this is around 93 and 96% right now and this is the lowest that this phone could go and let’s bring it all the way to 100% and this is the brightest and bring it down a little bit because that’s too bright for me now for the speakers for the Motorola One Action. It caught me off guard and the reason why is because they are extremely loud.
The speakers are located at the very bottom of the phone right next to this type C which allows you to hook up your cable to power it or to hook it up to the computer. If you want to know the decibel on the loudness of these particular speakers I got around 105.3 decibels and that is extremely high. Now for the camera. You have a couple of cameras you have one in the front which is pretty cool. But the main focus is the one at the back. This guy is actually 12 megapixels has an ultrawide FOV which FOV stands for a field of view of 117 degrees which is awesome. You are able to capture footage in landscape or portrait and just capture everything with no problem.
Now let’s take a quick sidebar and go inside the computer and look at some of the photos that I took on this particular phone and check out some of the specs there. Alright, so we on the desktop by now I have a folder called Motorola One Action with two subfolders I got a folder called photo features and another one with photo only with personal stuff. One of the cool things I like about the Motorola one action smartphone is that you are able to change the settings to RAW which actually allows you to get the DNG files and you are able to do a little bit more within Lightroomnow within the lightroom, I’m gonna open this guy up I have two subfolders two collections and one collection is the standard stuff of me changing settings and just taking pictures. This picture right here with an ISO 124 standard zoom looks really clear. I didn’t see any distortions or you know any blurriness.
When I kind of zoom into 3.5. I see a little bit of blurriness around the areas right here it’s kind of really soft, right? When I zoom in all the way to 8X with an ISOof 56 you really see that like around the white areas is really blurry, it’s not really clear. Now with the ISO, I started messing around in the dark ISO 100 with a little bit of light in the room, this is what you get. This is not that bad. When I bump up the ISO 200 still in a dark room doesn’t look that bad when I bump it up again to 400. I see a little bit of like, it’s really soft around the areas a little blurry around this little corner right here going to zoom in so you guys can see. Now if I go up to 800 like it really gets really blurry, really soft around the areas, when I bump it up to 1600 it looks really horrible you see on the picture is like a little green. And when I bump it up to 3200 with 3200 you see a lot of green in the corners is really horrible. I turn the lights on inside the room with an ISO 100 it does not look bad. Looks pretty clear. Zoom in his little corner right here. You get a little softness around the edges but not as much.
When you bump up the ISO to 200 doesn’t look that bad but like the corner of the monitor. It looks kind of faded out kind of blurry. bump it up to 400 ISO. You don’t see it’s not that bad. I did notice that one of my monitors need to be switched out ASAP is kind of crappy. When I bumped up the ISO again to 800, you see a few color issues around the corners, get these white lines around here like black lines actually white and black lines, bump it up to 1600 you will definitely see that black line around the images. And for 3200 like you, you’re going to see like greenish. And like my monitor right here, I definitely need to change this monitor, ASAP. Look how bad that monitor is. Alright, so let’s talk about the performance of the Motorola One Action smartphone device. So let’s talk about specs, right? Because I’m all about the specifications because that’s how the way I do it with my laptop reviews. So for a CPU, this guy actually has two CPUs. One is an ARM Cortex, A53 with a clock speed of 2.21 gigahertz. And the second processor is an ARM CortexA73 with a clock speed of 1.64 gigahertz.
For the operating system. It has an Android 9 pie, memory only comes with four gigs which I’m a little disappointed with the memory it would have been cool if it had a little bit more memory, let’s say around eight gigs that have been awesome. For the GPU. It comes with a Mali G72. For storage, I was super surprised with the storage this guy actually comes with 128 gigs of storage, internal. Now you can actually bump it up with a microSD card, and the micro SD card actually goes up to one terabyte overall performance on this particular machine. I was super satisfied with it. I did do a Geekbench kind of stress test on it. It worked pretty well. When my son was playing Call of Duty. It was really seamless. I didn’t see any hesitations. It was pretty smooth. And again, you know when you give a phone to a child and is sluggish, they would definitely let you know. And my son fell in love with this guy automatically. Like for real guys, he thought it was his to kept.
Okay, so let’s talk about the battery because with smartphone devices the battery is the number one thing. So the battery life is not that bad standby, which is what I had this machine for the past couple of days. It lasts around four or five days, but it’s19% right now if you look at the top, but standby if you’re not using it a lot you’re getting a couple of messages as I got right here a couple of messages it’s around five days now if you’re using a really heavy I would say two or three days when my son had it last maybe two days straight. And he was like dad where’s the power supply was the power supply you know, I needed to play Call of Duty. I was like no, just play with it, play with it. And with 10% on red, he was still able to play with it with no problem. Alright, so let’s conclude our review of the Motorola One Action smartphone. Now, this phone right here is a nice addition to carry around. I mean Phone and makes calls you able to text you able to go to Twitter, Instagram, blah blah blah you know that’s all the standard stuff that you get on a smartphone.
The price is pretty awesome around $349 itis unlock which allows you to hook up your you know your carrier T-Mobile, Verizon, AT& T, whatever you have Sprint, you can hook it up with this guy with no problem because itis unlocked. One of the things I really really like about this phone is the 4K recording. That is a huge, huge plus. I like the way that it captures the 4K with no problem. The camera being 12 megapixels, it’s pretty fast. But when I was taking pictures I did notice a little sluggishness when taking fast pictures with my son when he was playing around. But you know it’s not that bad. It does have many features that I do enjoy. One of the cool things about this phone. It does have a Google lens. I like that feature a lot. You’re able to take a picture of a particular item and then it kind of like searches the database that’s kind of freaky and tells you what it is and allows you to go inside Google and provide you more information right? Another thing that I liked about this phone is that my son when he was taking pictures and I was recording him he was watching youtube and taking pictures at the same time.
