All modern Motorola phones that come with VoLTE capability are also support the same functionality with the Jio network. This includes Motorola phones such as the Moto G6 and G6 Plus as well as the E5 and E5 Plus, among many others. In fact, Reliance also offers VoLTE and data plans specifically customised for various Motorola smartphones.
The effective battery life of any smartphone doesn't just depend on battery capacity (measured in milliampere hour or mAh), but it also depends on two other important factors. The first factor is the hardware capability of the phone, which includes the computational power/power-efficiency of the SoC and resolution/brightness of the display. The second factor is optimisation, which has a greater bearing on battery life.
While a phone with higher battery capacity should offer longer battery life, the battery life gets worse as phones get more expensive. Flagship phones tend to pack in powerful hardware and bright, high resolution displays - both of which reduce battery life greatly. Furthermore, since flagship phones are expected to be slimmer, this further reduces battery life. Not surprisingly, you shouldn't expect expensive Motorola phones such as the Moto Z2 Force to deliver stunning battery backup, but at the same time cheaper alternatives such as the Moto E5 Plus deliver great battery backup with the 5000mAh battery.
Having said that, the near stock Android underpinnings of Motorola allow its phones to be better optimised. This allows the SoC to perform most common tasks using the low-power cores of the SoC, without the need to fire up the performance cores. Better software optimisation of Motorola phones is an important factor in enhancing the battery backup.
All modern Motorola phones, including almost all of the budget offerings, feature either rear or front mounted fingerprint scanners.
The TurboPower feature is Motorola's own fast charging system that is backwards compatible with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 standard. Like Qualcomm's Quick Charge system, Motorola TurboPower monitors a number of factors such as battery temperature and health to automatically adjust the amount of charge delivered. This helps the fast charging system to strike a good balance between battery longevity and charging speed.
Depending on the phone, the TurboPower feature delivers 30 percent battery capacity within 15 minutes. The time required to fully charge a phone depends on the battery capacity of the phone, but TurboPower definitely achieves the same amount of charge in a significantly lower amount of time.
Although Lenovo owns the Motorola brand, calling both brands the same would be technically wrong. While some degree of cross pollination and transfer of technology occurs between sister brands, but these brands still tend to operate independently. In short, these are two separate brands operated by the same parent company Lenovo.
Nearly all Motorola phones ship with Corning Gorilla Glass display protection. With the exception of the cheapest Motorola phones such as the Moto C, even lower end Motorola phones such as the Moto E5 boast of Gorilla Glass protected displays.
Motorola simply cannot compete with the best in terms of camera quality. While it offers AI enabled cameras in the mid-range segment, the overall camera quality doesn't really stand out from the competition.
Motorola's near stock Android experience not only leads to better optimisation, but also relatively faster updates compared to other phone manufacturers that heavily tweak their Android forks. This gets even better with Motorola phones that ship with Android One. The software support is pretty good as a consequence.
Most Motorola smartphones include microSD card slots for storage expansion.
While Motorola is rumoured to be working on its own VR headset, only its high-end the Z-series phones such as the Moto Z, Z2 Play, and Z2 Force support Google's Daydream VR headset.
Moto Z-series phones feature a number of modular, magnetic snap-on attachments that do anything from increase battery capacity and improve speaker output to improving photography and gaming experience. Dubbed as Moto Mods, these attachments include moto gamepad, JBL SoundBoost, moto turbopower pack, moto insta-share projector, Hasselblad True Zoom, Incipio offGRID Power Pack, and moto style shell.
The Motorola Moto E series phones such as the E5 and E5 Plus in addition to the C series phones such as the Moto C and C Plus represent Motorola's sub-INR 10,000 line-up of phones.
Motorola phones have a reputation for reliability and good after sales warranty support. As such all Motorola smartphones come with 12 month warranty cover against electrical and mechanical failures. Going by average phone usage patterns, chances are that your phone is more likely to go obsolete before it malfunctions.
Yes, Motorola is one of the better phone brands, which has good quality control and builds sturdy reliable phones. The company's after sales and service network is also pretty good.
In addition to online stores, Motorola phones are available at Moto Hubs specialising in Motorola devices, Moto Preferred stores, and also in electronic retail chains as well as regular brick-and-mortar mobile phone shops all across major Indian cities.
The best Motorola phone would logically be the one with the most number features and highest specifications. For the year 2018, this happens to be the flagship Motorola Moto Z2 Force. Powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC, the phone features a number of snap-on mods that enhance everything from battery life and sound to camera and a full-blown mini projector. The phone may pale in comparison to other flagship handsets, but this is the best in Motorola's repertoire.
