DESIGN AND DISPLAY

Like all other Moto smartphones, this phone too carries the distinct Moto look, thus making it stand out from the crowd. The phone is relatively large as its dimensions are 6.02 x 3.02 x 0.39 inches but doesn’t weigh that much (i.e. 155g) due to its uniform weight distribution. The phone features a metal frame that is rounded at its edges and sports a back cover made using rubber, thus making the phone have a fine ergonomic grip. The display is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 that makes it scratch resistant. The 5.5 inches full-HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen of 16M colors display provided in the phone provides a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels that roughly translates to 401 pixels-per-inch pixel density. The display is commendable as it produces catchy and lively colours. The black levels of the display is also great and so is the sunlight legibility and viewing angles. Overall, we had no problem with the display of the smartphone.

Now talking about one of the most touted feature of the smartphone i.e. the 16MP rear shooter camera with f/2.0 aperture and Phase Detection Autofocus. The primary camera also features laser autofocus that immediately locks on the target picture. The image quality has significantly improved from the Motorola Moto G4, as the images snapped in broad daylight are full of details and colours. However, the low light photography disappoints a little, as noise seems to creep in even after the use of dual-LED (dual tone) flashlight. The 5MP front camera with f/2.2 aperture and auto-HDR captures some interesting selfies that are full of details. HD video recording in done at frames like 1080p@30fps, HDR.
