Motorola's only 2019 One-series handset released in the US so far is... pretty fascinating, with its four rear-facing cameras, large 6.39-inch Super AMOLED screen, equally large 4,000mAh battery, and swanky glowing logo on its back.
Like so many of the company's phones in the last few years, the Motorola One Zoom
is certainly not perfect, but it also definitely has its fair share of strengths, some of which are listed above. All in all, the price point is the main thing you should take into consideration if you're thinking of buying this very respectable and decidedly unique-looking mid-ranger.
At $450, we're not entirely sure we'd call the 10x hybrid zoom-producing bad boy a must-buy, but a discount of almost $100 makes this a whole different story. Technically, Motorola currently sells the unlocked handset for only 50 bucks off its list price
both on the company's official US website and on eBay, but if you choose the latter route, you can save an extra $40 right now with the "POWERTEN" promo code.
This will automatically shave an additional 10 percent off your order, and yes, you still get a standard 1-year manufacturer's warranty. You can also choose between Electric Grey and Brushed Bronze paint jobs, with the Cosmic Purple variant showing up as out of stock at the time of this writing.
With 128 gigs of internal storage space and 4 gigs of memory, it's hard to beat the Motorola One Zoom
at a discounted price of $360. The phone also packs a decent Snapdragon 675 processor, while running a very clean, very smooth version of Android 9.0 Pie on the software side of things, with a relatively swift Android 10 update pretty much guaranteed as well.
Of course, the key selling point is the unusual quad camera setup that includes a primary 48MP shooter with f/1.7 aperture and optical image stabilization, a 16MP wide angle lens, an 8MP telephoto sensor, and a 5MP depth sensor. As you can imagine, that enables an extremely versatile and surprisingly powerful photographic experience, although the "ultra-wide" angle camera is far from impressive.
