Reviews of Motorola Moto M
General Reviews of the users are as follows:
- 401 ppi display looks great.
- Metal body has been appreciated over the previous plastic bodies.
- Very responsive fingerprint sensor.
- Great addition of Octa Core Processor to boost the performance of the device.
- Due to the 3/4 GB RAM no lag is experienced in this device.
- Bad quality camera, both front and rear camera are not up to the mark.
- Complains about battery backup have been heard a lot.
- Overheating issues with 4G and WiFi usage.
It is a good attempt made by Motorola to boost the performance of this device. I would consider to be it an unsuccessful attempt as Motorola has mostly concentrated on the performance of the device rather than the overall capability of the device. Whist an Octa Core Processor along with 3/4 GB RAM has been added to the device they have forgot about the battery backup and a quality camera. So overall the performance of this device is no doubt very good but users will face issue with battery backup and also blurry images. Overheating has also been added by the users as a con. In this price range there are some devices which can be preferred over Motorola Moto M.
- Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime
- Asus Zefone 3s
- Samsung Galaxy On Nxt
