Motorola One Fusion+ review
Motorola One Fusion+ seems like an easily likable phone with rich feature set. The One Fusion+ is Moto's second phone with an unblemished screen thanks to a pop-up selfie, and it tries to offer the most bang for its €299 price.
It sure looks like the One Fusion+ can deliver on every front. Its HDR10 screen, uninterrupted at that, is perfect for movies and games. Then there is the powerful Snapdragon 730 chip - one of the best choices for the midrange class.
There is more, of course. The Fusion+ packs a familiar quad-camera on its back - regular, ultrawide, macro, and depth - but it also offers various shooting modes, including Night Vision. Then there is the large 5,000 mAh battery that should last you at least two days by Moto's estimates. We will see about this in a bit, you bet.
The One Fusion+ boots rather clean Android 10 OS, but it is not part of the Android One distribution. It is just Google's cleanest version with a bunch of unobtrusive Moto extras here and there, including a dedicated Gaming Mode and standby screen.

Just like many other Motorola budget phones, this one also packs this water-repellent nano-coating, which provides basic splash resistance over the internals of the phone and its ports. This is far from actual water-resistance and more like some peace of mind, but it may as well save your Moto once or twice when an accident occurs. And we all know such happen rather inevitably.
And in case you are wondering about the regular One Fusion model - you may as well never heard about it. The regular (and cheaper) version is limited to Latin America and the Middle East, and Motorola hasn't shared any plans for a broader release.
The Fusion+ is not getting a global release either. Even its European availability is limited to Eastern Europe only.
Unboxing the Motorola One Fusion+
The Motorola One Fusion+ retail box contains the usual - you get an 18W charger, a USB-C cable, and a transparent silicone case.
There is no screen protector shipping with the phone - if you were curious about that.
