Looks like another interesting budget phone from Motorola - I am loving my G7 and this looks even better.

USP for this one is that the video camera is rotated so that you can capture landscape video while the phone is held in portrait - image stabilisation and wide angle make it great for action shots - hence the name.

Spec is pretty decent budget level (the resolution is slightly better than the G7 I have and that is a lovely LCD screen for the price)

4GB Ram + 128GB Storage
Exynos 9609 Processor
6.3inch IPS 2520x1080
Android 9 with upgrades to Q and R
12MP+16MP+5MP triple main camera
12MP punch hole selfie
3500mAh Battery

Not sure if you seriously made a point a £200 phone doesn't have 5G. The cheapest is the Reno 5G at £700 or £60 pm

Nearly everyone has bought non 5G phones, some stuck in a 2 year contract that cost way more than this so why say this about a budget price phone?

This is a great idea, hopefully we can soon eradicate the scourge of portrait videos!
This looks great. Hopefully other manufacturers will copy, ahem.......... Sorry........'develop' their own version of this.

I have hurtled down snowy mountains and followed my kids on bikes trying to hold my phone landscape so many times. Portrait and an optically stabilised wide-screen lens would make a huge difference. Can't believe no one has thought of this before.

It's getting confusing trying to compare this to the Motorola One Vision.

As far as I can see the key differences between the two models seems to be the camera specifications.

It's difficult to work out, however, which of the two models is best. Any suggestions on which of the two is best and why?
This looks decent, 9 series processor is good, camera looks decent as well.

Heat added Bisto, and obviously the home mini is goooood

Hi, I've been using Vision One for 3 months and must say it's great. But it's the camera that makes this phone amazing so if One Action's camera has lower specs, I would wait for the Vision offer, really.
NFC??

Decent spec for a budget phone. Played around with the new note 10s yesterday must say looks great much nicer than note 9.
Some reviews on youtube looks a great phone
Am I correct in thinking the battery is mediocre?

My G7 has a 3000mAh battery and I easily get well over a day with quite heavy use - Bluetooth headphones, Bluetooth connection to my watch and a decent amount of browsing on my commute.

Pretty good I think, so the extra 500mAh in this may extend that? Depends on how efficient the exynos 9609 is compared to the SD632 I suppose?

Easily get 2-3 days when on light duty

Only if you really require 5G though, the 'normal' 5G you will use out and about is going to be similar speeds and quality of connection as 4G is today.

Yes, agree.

5G will not be a massive draw to many while contract data caps and mega prices are still around.

Good 4G is plenty fast enough.
Wireless charging?
This being part of the Android One Software with GTD updates and upgrades makes it even better
I will never buy another Motorola after how they messed up the Moto Z with an official update but then denied all knowledge of a problem despite their own forum having 1000s of posts about it.

In a nutshell, the MOA is basically the same as the MOV, but without the Sony imx 586 chip for the 48mpx front and 25mpx selfie camera, all the other guts & features are the same, MOA has slightly less LTE channels, but has the all important Band 20 800Hz one for the UK & Europe

I thought you were being sarcastic, guess not. 3G closure has been announced by a couple of carriers by 2022. It's likely 4G will be 2+ years after that. So this phone should be fine until 2024/2025. 2G will not go away for a long time due to it being a strong fallback option.
Watch out for the poor battery life on this. The Moto One Vision was slammed for it's bad battery and this actually slightly worse.

There will always be compromises at this price point for phones not brought from the chinese market - and a lot of people don't want to buy from the chinese market.

My first one wasn't pointless but my second one probably was. Good day.
Just unpacked one, feels very slim in my hand, good if you prefer small width phone. It is very heavy though. Will review when I have put the new sim in.

Looking forward to hearing some thought's, I was very interested in the One Vision but I think this one seems much better for me, but can you confirm it's definitely not dual SIM? I'm a little gutted they seem to have only brought the single SIM model to the UK when the One Vision is dual SIM.

I wouldn't splash out on a 5G phone even if it was fully rolled out. 4G is fast enough as it is, I've never felt it was too slow.
