Unboxing Motorola’s One Macro smartphone, with a hands-on review of the camera tech and run through the specs, best features and UK price/release date info.
I’m starting to lose track of all these Moto One mobiles landing late 2019, each of which focus on the rear camera and offer a very different USP from one another. The Motorola One Macro unsurprisingly delivers a clever close-up shooter, for those really intimate photos. There’s no telephoto lens like the Zoom, or super-stable video like you get with the One Action – and I have to wonder if that macro snapper will get much use from everyday consumers.
While the £179 UK asking price is respectable, a little bit of extra cash will bag you the excellent G8 Plus from Motorola – while the G7 Power is just as strong competition. Those specs are fine, if nothing special – a Mediatek P70 chipset backed by 4GB of RAM, a 6.2-inch HD+ screen etc. Though the 4000mAh battery will hopefully keep you going all day.
