We’ve tested the Moto Z recently and also the Moto G4 before it, so now it’s time to move to a newer series of Moto handsets. I’m talking about the Motorola Moto M, unveiled in November last year and priced at around $250. We unboxed it below.
The device comes with a generous set of accessories, including a charger, USB Type C cable, headphones, metal key for the slots, a case, manuals and screen protector. Moto M has a 2.5D glass panel upfront and the facade feels like the Galaxy J5 (2016) design-wise. The back is curved a bit and the body has a unibody metal approach, with a pretty solid build.
The handset measures 7.9 mm in thickness, just like the Galaxy S7 and it weighs 163 grams. The phone packs a 5.5 inch Full HD screen and a Helio P10 processor on the international market, or the Helio P15 for the Indian market. There’s 32 or 64 GB of storage and 3 or 4 GB of RAM. This is a dual SIM phone, with a microSD card slot and at the back we find a 16 megapixel camera, while upfront there’s an 8 MP shooter for selfies.
Available in gold, gray or silver, this phone comes with fast charging, as revealed by the bundled big charger, by the way. We find an USB Type C port at the bottom and the OS of choice here is Android Marshmallow. This model is interesting, because it competes with the likes of Huawei Nova, ASUS ZenFone 3 and Galaxy A 2016 models. We’ll see if it beats them as we test the phone over the next days.
