MOTO ONE FUSION PLUS Price, Review, Specs & First Impression

Introduction of Moto one fusion plus:

What's up, everybody? I am Shubh Rajput and today I am gonna talk about Moto one fusion plus. Now, there used to be a time when Motorola's g-series of smartphones used to be every viewer’s go-to recommendation in the affordable segment. Now, over the years things changed, Motorola's ownership changed a couple of times and the company lost it's mounted to brands like Realme and Xiaomi.

Now, since then the company has struggled to compete in the affordable segment but I think Motorola's dog days are over, as the brand recently came up with this.

Now, this is the all-new moto one fusion plus and I think that this smartphone is going to set the affordable segment on fire, here's why. So, let's get on with my first impressions of the moto one fusion plus.





So, let's start with the design of the moto one fusion Plus, which so far has not been the most convincing aspect of the phone for me. Now, that has partly to do with the blue color variant of the phone which I wasn't as hype for, in the first place.

I mean, if you do get the chance to buy the phone. Then, go for the white color because it looks unique with all its white bezels and whatnot.

Build quality

Also, apart from the color, I'm not entirely satisfied with the build quality of the phone either and I could hear slight creaking noise around the back of the phone, near the camera modules.

The button spread a bit on the mushy side too. So, everything considered not the biggest fan of the smartphone’s design but the Moto one fusion plus for all its bulk is extremely organic to hold. Thanks to its chamfered edges and a curvy back.


Also, while the phone is quite heavy at 210 grams. So, don't drop it on your face. The weight distribution is not bad and I never felt that the phone was top-heavy. Now, thanks to its wider than usual frame and it's heavy chassis.

Don't even try to use the phone with one hand because you will drop it. Trust me, a voice in your mind will tell you that it's fine to use it with one hand but don't listen to it.


Ports, slots & storage

Now, as for the i/o, the motor one fusion plus ships with the headphone jack and a mono speaker grille at the bottom. Now, there is a headphone jack present on the handset which reportedly offers support for 32-bit music playback. You'll also get a USB type-c port for charging which is sandwiched between the two ports.

Now, up top there is a hybrid SIM tray which is a little disappointing as you will have to compromise on either expanding the storage or using 2 sims but on the bright side, the phone does come with 128 GB of built-in storage.


Now, you will get all the buttons on the right spine of the phone, including a volume rocker, a power button, and a dedicated Google Assistant key.

Now, the power button and the Google assistant key, both offered a different textured finish which is nice as you won't confuse one for the other but I would have liked them to be a little more tactile.

Fingerprint sensor

Lastly, you get a fingerprint sensor towards the back, underneath the Moto logo which worked well. It opens the phone energy free and is pretty accurate. Unfortunately, there is no facial recognition support with the phone.


So, display wise the motor one fusion plus comes with a 6.5-inch panel with no notch. Now, you might be wondering ‘Why there's no notch on the phone’. Well, that's because the smartphone comes with a pop-up selfie camera mechanism and have you thought that this implementation of the design was dead.

Now, as for the display itself, the panel ships with IPS LCD technology, and it even comes with HDR 10 certification. Now, unlike the Poco X2, you don't get a high refresh rate display with the mode of one fusion plus but on the whole, I like the screen on offer here.

It's bright, has been tuned well, and offers good viewing angles. There is not a whole lot of backlight bleed either something that you see with cheaper LCDs which are also great.


The battery life has also impressed me so far which shouldn't come as a surprise, as the device comes with a 5000 mAh cell. I'm easily averaging, over a day's worth of usage with the phone.



So, onto the performance, now. Well, the motor one fusion plus is backed by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor which works alongside 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.0 storage which as I mentioned previously is expandable as you do get a hybrid SIM slot with a smartphone.


So far, the smartphone is shaping up to be the snappiest device I've used under rupees 20,000. Now, this probably has to do with the phones vanilla user interface but the fusion plus feels extremely responsive, when I was opening apps or multitasking.


As for gaming, so far I have played Call of duty on the phone and it runs well too with the settings maxing out at very high for frame rate and very high for graphics.


Back camera

So, the moto infusion plus ships with a quad-camera set up at the back, comprising a 64-megapixel sensor with F 1.8 aperture and an 8-megapixel auto wide-angle lens with 118-degree field of view, a 5-megapixel macro sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Though the 64 MB main camera, takes decent images when the sun's out too.

Front Camera

The smartphone comes with a pop-up selfie camera mechanism. Well, this is a move on Motorola spot as it greatly defines the media consumption experience and for anyone wondering ‘I'm not worried about the pop-up mechanism at all’.

Firstly, having used phones with a pop-up selfie camera for years. Now, I can't tell you that I have never faced any issues with the moving parts. So, I am not concerned about the ones inside the one fusion plus either.

Now, secondly, the smartphone does come with a fall detection. So, the selfie camera will go back inside, if you accidentally drop the phone. The only downside is that the movement of the pop-up camera is a tad bit slow.

It takes a second to pop out and it's also, why the phone doesn't come with facial recognition. Now, for selfies, the phone offers a 16-megapixel selfie camera. So, for the start of the show for me has been the phone selfie camera which clicks detailed photos.


So, some final bits of information about the motor one fusion plus. Firstly, the phone offers a newer stock Android 10 experience.

But this time around, it's not as bare-bones as there are some cool utilities like a customization tool Motorola calls ‘Moto style’ and so on. The phone has been updated to Maze Google security patch 2 which is great.

Moto one fusion plus Price

Now, the moto one fusion plus has been launched at a price point of Rs. 16,999 in India and for the price, I think the smartphone immediately has 2 things going for it. One, based on my first impressions its speedy performance and secondly, its stock Android experience which is somewhat of a rarity under the 20,000 rupees price tag.

Conclusion of Moto one fusion plus:

Now, there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered about the device before I can recommend it to you, guys. But rest assured, my first impressions of the smartphone are extremely positive and I'm enjoying using the mode of moto one fusion plus, quite a lot.
