Motorola One Fusion is the cheaper version of the Fusion + model announced last month, with a 6.5-inch HD + screen instead of FHD + and an entry-level Snapdragon 710 chipset. Delivered with the Android One platform, the phone still has 4GB of RAM.
Motorola One Fusion: a cheaper phone but powerful enough
Although it promises many of the advantages of more expensive phones, the Motorola One Fusion comes in a polycarbonate case with a glossy finish, which means that the wear resistance is much lower. However, we find design features reminiscent of the premium range, such as curved edges and screen cut after the contour of the case, the less expensive technical solution being betrayed only by the prominent “chin” left at the bottom. The 6.5 ”screen is of LCD type with HD + resolution, the image clarity having little to suffer. The 19.5: 9 aspect ratio screen comes cropped at the top (the Fusion + model has a retractable camera).
Motorola places great emphasis on the Motorola One Fusion software. The phone comes equipped with Android 10 in the Android One version, so with a minimum of customizations. The company is committed to delivering at least one major update as well as security updates for the next few years. The phone even includes a dedicated “Google Assistant” button.
Android One, for a “clean” Android experience
The main camera is a quad-camera model in 48MP + 8MP + 5MP + 2MP configuration, and the front camera has a single 8MP sensor. However, in the camera application we find many interesting options such as Night Vision, Auto Smile Cepture, HDR, Best Shot and even integration with Google Lens. Even the macro camera has several dedicated modes.
Aside from the camera app, which is owned by Motorola, most of the default apps are from Google.
The list of features is completed with 64GB internal storage, 5000mAh battery, fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone, 3.5mm jack audio output and dual SIM hybrid support (you have to choose between the second SIM card or microSD card).
