Motorola Moto E3 Power Features

Moto by Lenovo for the first time has gone with MediaTek processor with the Moto E3 Power.The phone as it looks like focuses on providing excellent battery life. That could be one of the reason Moto chose to go with a low end MediaTek chipset to make sure it does not consume more power. 


Design and Display

The look and feel of the device comes from the recently launched Moto G4 Play with plastic body but solid built and good to hold. Also the smaller form factor ensures the devices to be easily used single handedly. The display of the Moto E3 Power is a 5 inch HD with a resolution of 1280x720 pxiels and that gives the display a total pixel density of 294PPI which does sound decent in terms of sharpness.


Hardware and Features

Running inside the phone is a MediaTek Mt6735P Quad Core chipset clocked at 1GHz and combined along is thankfully 2GB of RAM. The processor being just about average in performance has also been under clocked to get more juice out of it. Moto E3 Power will sure gives you a lot of juice but the performance here is a big question. On the software end, the phones runs on Android Marshmallow out of the box with near Stock UI and as per Moto standards should receive Android Nougat update soon.


Camera and Storage

On the back of the Moto E3 Power there is a 8MP sensor along with an LED Flash for light up those low light moments and the camera rear camera can shoot videos up to 720p only. And for selfies we have a 5MP camera that can also be used for video calling. Coming to the storage, you get 16GB of onboard storage and it can be further expanded via a MicroSD card up to 128GB.


Battery and Connectivity

The Moto E3 Power houses a massive 3500mAh battery that is sealed inside and should provide ample amount of juice to easily last you through the day. The device supports Dual SIMs along with 4G LTE support and VoLTE enabled, meaning yes, you will be able to use your Reliance Jio SIM with this device. Apart from that we have standard Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity as well.


Competition

For a price of around Rs.8000, even though Moto is betting big on it's massive battery, the Moto E3 Power does not make sense at all as it has a major competitor Xiaomi Redmi 3s and Redmi 3s Prime around the same price. The latter two phones offer much better performance and an even bigger battery along side other essential features.

Bought this phone at a 10% off from Flipkart @ Rs 7200. This is my secondary phone basically bought to use my secondary Sims. But the phone sometimes gets switched off itself while it is in my pocket. I really get annoyed with that. Apart from that as I am an apple user the touch response is pretty dull when compared to an apple. I suggest not to buy this as you have a lot of other options these days rather than this in this price range.
The Good
  • Display size is appropriate
  • Camera is good
The Bad
  • Heats a lot
  • Gets switched off automatically
  • Touch is not so good
