Now a third-generation Moto E handset inside Lenovo's ownership Launched is. However, a change has been made this time. The model launched in India has got the name of Moto E3 Power. This is a special variant of Moto E3 for India. On paper, Moto E3 power looks better due to the larger battery, memory and inbuilt storage. Will the Moto E3 power challenge other popular handsets in the budget segment with these features? It will be revealed in the coming time. We spent some time with Moto E3 Power at the launch event held in New Delhi. Let us tell you how we liked this phone at first glance.
Moto e3 power The most important feature of this is its large battery of 3500 mAh. The company is also trying hard to capitalize on this feature. For larger batteries, Lenovo has given a 10 Watt rapid charger with Moto E3 power. The phone supports rapid charging. This means that after charging just 15 minutes, your phone will get up to 5 hours of battery life. This claim has been made by the company.
The back cover of the Moto E3 Power can be removed. Upon removing it, you will be able to see two SIM slots and a microSD slot. The company has given a removable battery in Moto E3 Power. This is a pleasant change.
The new Moto E3 power is very similar in appearance to the first generation Moto E. The speaker grills are present at the top and bottom of the display. The 5-inch screen makes it taller than the earlier Moto E which was equipped with a 4.3-inch display. The front panel of the phone is absolutely clean, branding is also not present on it. At the same time, the familiar Moto logo will be seen in the rear part. We liked the texture of the rear panel. The same can be said about metal frames. Both of them give good grip to the Moto E3 Power firmly.
The volume and power buttons are on the right, while the left side is completely empty. The 3.5mm audio jack is at the top and the micro-USB charging port is present at the bottom. This phone with 154 grams gives a feeling of being slightly more weighty according to its size.
Speaking of the display, Lenovo had claimed during the launch that the Moto E3 Power will have the largest and bright display of the Moto E-series. The E3 Power has a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display which is better than the previous generation QHD (540×960 pixels) resolution. It does not use reinforced glass, which has been part of the previous generation device. In the limited time spent with Moto E3 Power, we found that Moto E3 Power display is crisp and works well most of the time. We also liked the viewing angle. However, the brightness of the display disappointed slightly. It is possible that there is a problem in reading anything on the screen of the handset in direct sunlight.
Lenovo has used the onscreen button instead of the capacitive button this time. The response to pressing the physical volume and power button on the right side was good. Like the old Moto handsets, the Moto E3 Power has a nano-coating that will protect it from water splashes.
The Moto E3 Power has almost the stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The company has made radical changes to the OS. Google Now Launcher was present by default in the unit we used. There were not too many third-party apps on the phone. This means that the user will get more share in 16 GB storage. It is possible to use a microSD card up to 32 GB in the phone. In addition, Lenovo is offering free photo storage on the Google Photos app for two years.
The new phone uses 2GB of RAM with 64-bit 1 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735P processor. It is known that the company has been using Qualcomm Snapdragon processor till now in the old smartphone of Moto E series. In the time spent with the Moto E3 power, we found that the touch input response was good. It was also working fairly quickly in multitasking. Apps started fast. By the way, we would suggest that you wait for the detailed review of Gadgets 360.
The biggest improvement in Moto E3 power has been done in the camera department. The phone has an 8 megapixel rear camera and comes with an LED flash. This camera is equipped with 720 pixels HD video capture and burst mode. It has a 5 megapixel front camera which is equipped with beautification mode.
The Moto E3 Power's camera launches rapidly after tapping the icon. In the limited time spent with the smartphone, we found that photos taken in appropriate light were crisp. And the details in these were also fine. However, upon zooming in we found pixelation on the edges. The front camera also took decent pictures. However, we would like to give a decision only after reviewing the camera in detail.
Talking about connectivity, Moto E3 Power has Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n, A-GPS, Bluetooth v4.0, 3G, GPRS / EDGE and 4G LTE (Cat.4) features. It also supports VoLTE, which means you will be able to take advantage of Reliance Jio's network as well.
Lenovo's Moto E3 Power appears to be a decent package for Rs 7,999. This handset is exclusively available on Flipkart. On the first day, it is available with many launch offers.
Motorola Mobility General Manager Amit Boni revealed during the launch that there are over 3 million Moto E users in India, which is a proof of the popularity of the last two models. However, Moto E3 Power clashed in this price Xiaomi Redmi 3S Such as will be from popular phones. This smartphone of Rs 6,999 comes with a full-metal body and 4100 mAh battery.
