Motorola as a brand has been in the smartphone game for a really long time. That’s not just a saying, it is very factual. Churning out devices with mouth-watering specs and features like the Moto Z, Moto Z Play (Vertex) and Moto G5, Motorola does not seem to be showing any sign of slowing down. Quite surprising is the fact that we still get to see Motorola devices despite the purchase of the company by Lenovo. The Motorola brand won’t go extinct after all.

Another device from Motorola is up for review today – the Motorola Moto M. Is it a great device? Are the specs wonderful? Mind blowing? Or just mediocre? Find out below.

Let us quickly take a look at some of the Motorola MOTO M  phone specs and features. Now let’s get to it.


Motorola Moto M

The Motorola Moto M body has a shiny and sleek metal finish. The edges are round (curved), and the device generally wears a premium look. The 3.5mm earphone jack sits on the top of the device while the USB charging port can be found placed midway at the bottom width of the device.

The volume adjuster is at the right side of the Moto M. There is also a fingerprint sensor at the back of the phablet, just right below the rear camera and the LED flash.


The MOTO M comes with a 5.5″inch Full HD screen with 1920x1080p resolution. The display quality on the device is on the good side with 401 pixels per inch density and a 2.5D curved glass. Great colour distinction and beautiful images are produced by the Moto M.

This is however not surprising because Motorola has been known to produce devices with amazing display quality in the past. They just did that with the Moto M again, and it keeps getting more amazing.


Motorola employed a very powerful chipset from MediaTek on the Moto M. The Helio p15 chipset, a successor to the Helio p10 used by many brands for their flagships. Once again, the Moto M comes with MediaTek Helio P15 with a super fast processor speed of 2.2GHz.

Furthermore, with Octa Core (8 cores) and support from the Mali-T860 GPU and 4GB RAM, processes such as Gaming, 3D gaming and other graphical processes will run smoothly as an outdoor flowing river. Also, there’s 32GB of internal storage available for data storage. The 32GB can be expanded to 128GB through the use of an external SD card.

The Moto M habits a 16 Megapixel camera on the rear. The rear camera comes with a phase-detection autofocus system. This PDAF technology ensures that when you shoot a moving subject, it will stay in focus. This advanced focus system utilises on-sensor phase pixels which help in the fast determination of subject distance and quickly adjust the focus as it moves across the frame. The 16MP shooter also has features like autofocus, face detection and dual tone LED flash for better-lighted images.

On the front, there’s an 8 megapixel. This is an improvement however to the selfie camera previously provided by Motorola on its prior devices. No Motorola device has ever had an 8MP front facing camera. The highest, before the Moto M, has been 5MP. Hopefully, their next device will have a better selfie camera (probably 13MP).


The Motorola Moto M Phablet is a heavy performer, meaning it requires an equivalent heavy battery juice to stay alive. The 3050 mAh battery backing the Moto M can and should be able to carry the device for a day on full charge.

Moto M also supports Quick charge and has the USB type C charging port (as earlier stated).


Motorola produced great devices in the past. With the specs on this device – the super fast processor, improved selfie camera and fingerprint scanner, Motorola isn’t giving up on their run of producing great devices. For Motorola and with the Moto M, it’s Great or nothing!
