Review of Motorola Moto E3 Power at a Glance:-Moto E3 is Entry level Smartphone from the Motorola, and here we are going to discuss about the advantage and disadvantages of 3rd generation of this handset. There are many things introduced in this series but fast forwarding world now the competition is hard as compare to 2014 when first gen of this handset was launched. Moto E3 Power is packed with v6.0.1 (Marshmallow) OS, 5.0 inches display, 1.0 GHz MediaTek Quad-core processor, 8 MP primary | 5 MP secondary camera, 16 GB Internal | 32 GB External SD card support, 2 GB RAM and 3500 mAh battery.
When most of the handset is moving to metallic body here Motorola still stick up with the plastic body retaining the same Moto’s conventional design. However this phone feels sturdy in hands. The back cover is removable and we can also access the battery. There is mono speaker located towards the front side which really delivers a loud and good quality sound. Power and volume keys are find out on the right edge of the phone while bottom has USB cable slot and top houses 3.5mm audio jack.
When we compare the Moto display with the Samsung’s sAMOLED display it looks dull and even the maximum brightness of Moto phone doesn’t look sharp enough. Now if we talk about the E3 Power its 5 inches IPS LCD display configuring 720p resolutions and 294 ppi of display density. However it is not as our expectation but the display looks neat and clean and it also offering a wide viewing angle, We were waiting for special protection in handset again here Moto disappoint us.
I was standing inside of a Mobile store and observing the people, what I have noticed that nearly all the customers first unlocking the phone and checking the camera quality of a smartphone. So what I want to say is that people really care about the camera quality in a smartphone. Here Moto E3 power is offering 8 MP rear and 5 MP front camera, as according to quality check rear camera of this phone is quite average in daylight, as light source descending the intensity the noise in photos increases, the front camera is relatively finer for all the selfie enthusiast.
Processor is Soul of a smartphone, however Lenovo renamed this phone Moto E3 Power, here I just want to ask the company; where the hell is “Power” in this smartphone? It has 1.0 GHZ quad-core MediaTek chipset, This is entry level chipset from the Mediatek, It can handle smartphone tasks easily but not designed for the Gamers, this mobile running intermittently even in quite basic games like Temple Run. I will never recommend this mobile to heavy Gamers or even simply Gamers.
Battery in this handset is quite well which can easily run for more than a full day even after heavy use, it is pre-loaded with 3500 mAh battery capacity and phone also support 10W fast charging, where company claims that phone can easily run for 5 hours just by charging 15 minutes.
