5 reasons not to buy the Moto M


The new Moto M - Motorola's first all-metal smartphone - has been launched in the Indian market

According to Lenovo "M" of the Motorola Moto M stands for Metal, but According to us "M" is for Mediatek. 


Here are five reasons not to buy the Motorola Moto M-


1. Mediatek - 

We don't know why Motorola is using a Mediatek chipset, The Moto M comes with a 64-bit MediaTek Helio P15 processor. 

The Gaming and Overall performance of the device is not so great. This device will surely lack developer support just because of Mediatek Chipset.

2. Android Updates -

Moto E3 Power which was launched few months ago hasn't been listed to "Official Motorola Devices which will get Android 7.0 Nougat", the reason is Moto E3 Power comes with a Mediatek Processor and even Motorola is not sure that it will handle Android 7.0 Nougat easily or not!

Same with Moto M, There's no confirmation whether this device will get future Android Updates or not!



3. IPS Display - 

The Moto M, Indian variant comes with an IPS Display and the company hasn't listed it yet on their Official Website. 
This is one of the biggest drawback of the Moto M, Motorola could have used Super Amoled Display.

4. Overpriced - 

The Motorola Moto M comes in two variants - 32GB/3GB at 15,999/- and 64GB/4GB at 17,999/- . The Smartphone is overpriced as compared to other Smartphones in this range. 

In comparison, The Lenovo ZUK Z2 Plus comes at 17,999/- and packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. 


5. No water resistance -

The Motorola Moto M has an advanced nano-coating technology that creates a water repellent barrier to help protect against moderate exposure to water such as accidental spills, splashes or light rain. It Not designed to be submersed in water, or exposed to pressurized water, or other liquids.

Moto M first hands-on pictures emerge


The following pictures come from Instagram user @sunniton, who posted the first hands-on high quality pictures of the Moto M. His pictures will give you an idea of how shiny and cool the device looks.

Motorola's M was introduced last week in China with 4 gigs of RAM, a 16MP camera, a 5.5" 1080p screen and a rear fingerprint scanner. The front looks like a Moto G while its back is a mixture of Moto G4/E3 series. 

It's also the first Motorola phone since 2011's Atrix to feature the batwing logo on the bottom of its back, rather than its center. Although we'd have loved the batwing to be put over the fingerprint scanner, it's nice to see new design elements/changes.


According to the photos @sunniton posted, Moto M will come with a screen protector, just like Moto E3 does, a couple user guides and its charger + USB cable. 



We still have no info about its release outside China, though we are hoping it's released before the holiday season. It could be a tough contender for the mid-range market.
