Motorola One Zoom Review | The Ultimate One?

Review of Motorola’s One Zoom smartphone, the most premium Moto One handset boasting a quad-lens camera, OLED screen and stock Android OS. It’s not an Android One mobile confusingly, unlike the Vision and Action, but it’s a step up in terms of features, specs, performance and battery life. Not to mention that versatile camera tech.

I’ve fully reviewed Motorola’s optics in another video (as there’s a lot to talk about), while this video focuses on the rest of the phone. This is almost a new Moto flagship thanks to the dependable performance, gorgeous display, attractive design elements and other features. Of course, the One Zoom also costs more than its siblings, with a £429 UK asking price (and about the same in dollars for US customers).

Go check out my full unboxing for a tour of the UI and the main features, and my Moto One Zoom camera review to see how the 4 lens setup translates to solid photo and video quality. Are you tempted by Motorola’s latest smartphone? It’s certainly their best of 2019 so far.

    I'm looking at a new phone so I think this may be my next dig.
    I've been reasonably happy with all my previous Motorola phones. I don't have a lot of money to through at flagships, so I've been chugging along with the mid-range ones and I'm pretty happy so far. Thanks for the review

    It's a nice phone but am I the only one to see the screen… adjusting or moving… I know what it's called but I don't remember. I've heard it's common with OLED displays

    Hello Motoooo.. please make a smaller phone, less than 6" . With a 3500-4000 MaH battery is ok . You can call it Moto G8 Power Jr. OR Motorola One Zoom Jr. 😃 Believe me , many of your loyalists will be happy !!

    Come back to this video months later, and one major let down is the hybrid dual sim. You have to decide on a second sim or memory card. There are adapters available, but because the second sim memory card is further in and a different orientation, standard adapters don't fit. Add the fact the new Samsung A71 has a three slot sim and memory tray, so you don't need an adapter. I will also revisit the camera video. When you review the Samsung Galaxy A71 camera, it would be interesting to see if it compares well with the One Zoom.

    I got the Motorola One Zoom a little over a week ago and I must say it's one of the best Smartphones I've ever had so far. The 3x optical zoom is just fantastic. Portrait Mode and the others are just great. I paid 350 Euros for it and I must say it's worth every cent.

    Why does the screen appear to glitch, and why is Motorola always out of this phone on their website? I kind of like the cameras and it looks like a neat phone however, they need to fix the glitchy screen and they should make it available to purchase. On top of that the gold version isn't even advertised anymore and they are always out of purple and now silver. I'm also surprised that American companies such as Metro PCS, Cricket and Boost Mobile don't offer this model or many other Motorola phones. I hope they make them more widely available through the American market.

    Been a big fan of motorola phones and yesterday my moto Z2 play fell out of my pocket while i was on my motorbike. So sad i had a broken screen now.
    In Indonesia Motorola has stopped selling its phones and i can not upgrade my phone.
    That's my sad story guys. You're lucky you still be able to purchase

    If a GCam launches for this thing It would have as good as a camera as most flagship killers, but for now It stands at a 86 point on DXoMark, wich is considerably low considering that the câmera IS the main focus of the smartphone!
