Motorola One Hyper Review

And thanks to using a pop-up selfie camera you get an nearly all-screen front.

It all sounds promising, though the true measure of the Motorola One Hyper's Camera will be when we get it matched against the Pixel 3a, which is now our pick for the best budget option among the top camera phones.

As for that box, you'll have to go to Motorola's own online store to actually acquire it. The Motorola One Hyper is compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile's 4G LTE networks in the United States, but it won't be sold through either carrier, only unlocked from the phone-maker itself.

Expected to launch yesterday, the Motorola One Hyper is now official. Motorola does say the phone has a water repellent design. This way, it can keep the One Hyper's price down, but also offer it with a full 12-month warranty.

Your money gets you an Android 10 phone with a 6.5-inch LCD IPS display, with no cut-out or notch for the front-facing camera or the earpiece. That puts it at the same price as Google's Pixel 3a, which just has a single rear camera but also benefits from Google's software smarts. Drop the Motorola One Hyper with the camera extended, meanwhile, and the various sensors will spot the fall and pull it back inside for protection.

The front-facer is a 32MP (f/2.0, 0.8um) pop-up unit that generates 8MP (f/2.0, 1.6um) Quad Pixel images. If you're bothered by the noise, you can apparently switch it off in settings. It offers an AI-powered night mode as well, which should help users capture some decent shots in low-light. It has been paired with an 8MP ultrawide angle sensor for a dual-camera setup.

The Motorola One Hyper has a price tag of $399 unlocked.

Both lenses are created to perform well in low light, and they're not the only highlights of the Motorola One Hyper, as it also has a 6.5-inch 1080 x 2340 LCD screen with 395 pixels per inch.

The Motorola One Hyper has a 4000mAh battery that supports a new fast-charging technology it calls Hyper Charging. Sadly you only get an 18W charger in the box, and have to buy the more powerful charger separately. Powered by a Snapdragon 675 processor and 4GB RAM, this thing can definitely handle most routine tasks, but it's probably wise not to expect the same performance in heavy gaming scenarios as you'd get from a Snapdragon 855 flagship nowadays. There is support for storage expansion via a MicroSD card slot. However, if you have a USB PD 3.0 charger, that should work according to Motorola.

It's not waterproof, but there's IPX2 splash resistance for the plastic body.

A ring of light around the fingerprint reader on the phone's back can light up when you receive a message or alert, which is handy if you turn your phone on its face when you're not using it. Initially, the phone will debut in a Deep Sea Blue color, but I think the Dark Amber version coming later is much more eye catching. Markets outside of the United States will also get a Fresh Orchid metallic pink finish, too. It goes on sale from today, and while it might not sate your appetite for a folding phone, at under $400 it's a whole lot more affordable.
