A few months ago, Moto came back to the country with three smartphone lines, namely the Moto E, G, and Z families. Moto’s G4 Plus is their midrange option, and it is certainly a capable phone. Though it might not catch everyone’s eyes; it has an all-plastic body when the trend right now is to use more premium materials. Now, Moto has launched their newer and more premium midranger, the all-metal Moto M.


The new Moto M is certainly a looker, with its full-metal body which comes in either gold or gray. Much like the G4 Plus, it has a 5.5” Full HD display, and it runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It has a slightly bigger battery (3,050mAh compared to 3,000mAh for the G4 Plus), and supports fast charging, which can deliver hours of power in a few minutes of charging.


The Moto M is powered by a MediaTek Helio P15 processor, along with having up to 4GB of RAM, which means day-to-day performance should be smooth. As for storage, it has 32GB onboard, and is expandable up to 128GB.


As for its cameras, the Moto M sports a 16MP rear shooter and an 8MP selfie camera. It’s also equipped with a dynamic Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) dual LED flash, which automatically adjusts for natural-looking and consistent colors. The Moto M’s camera app also features a Pro mode, which gives manual control over white balance, focus, shutter speed, ISO, and exposure compensation. For selfies, the Moto M has numerous filters and a beautification mode, de rigeur for smartphones nowadays.


The Moto M’s other features include an ultra-fast fingerprint sensor found at the back, compared to other Moto phones with fingerprint sensors at the front. It also has a water-repellent nano-coating, which will protect the phone from light spills and splashes.
