Motorola One Fusion+ review
The Motorola One Fusion+ packs a 6.5" IPS LCD screen with extended 1080p resolution and 20:9 aspect. The panel has no cutouts whatsoever, and it is protected by a piece of Gorilla Glass, an unspecified revision.
The Total Vision screen, as Motorola calls it, is sharp with 396ppi density. It supports HDR10 and thanks to the Widevine L1 DRM, you'd be able to enjoy high-res HDR10 content from Netflix and the likes.
We measured a maximum brightness if 454 nits in manual mode, and 562 nits in auto mode. That's about the average for an LCD, and we've indeed seen brighter panels. Still, we had no issues even in the brightest of days.
The black levels of the One Fusion+ screen turned out quite good, too, and overall, the panel offers an excellent contrast ratio of about 1400:1.
The minimum brightness at the far left of the scrubber is 6.2 nits - a good one.
|Display test||100% brightness|
Color reproduction is consistently good on the One Fusion+. The default Saturated mode got us an average DeltaE of 4.3 against DCI-P3 targets, whereas in Natural we measured an average DeltaE of 2.0 against sRGB targets.
Battery life and charging
The Motorola One Fusion+ packs a massive 5,000 mAh battery, which should last you for more than two days of normal usage according to Motorola's claims. The phone supports TurboPower fast charging and the provided 18W charger replenishes about 30% of the depleted battery in 30mins. Note that Motorola says the phone charges at 15W, meaning the adapter you get comes a bit overqualified for the job.
Quite expectedly, the One Fusion+ turned out to be a remarkable performer in our battery test with a 136-hour Endurance rating. It did a great job in all tested scenarios - video, calls, web browsing and even stand-by performance.
Our battery tests were automated thanks to SmartViser, using its viSer App. The endurance rating above denotes how long a single battery charge will last you if you use the Motorola One Fusion+ for an hour each of telephony, web browsing, and video playback daily. We've established this usage pattern so that our battery results are comparable across devices in the most common day-to-day tasks. The battery testing procedure is described in detail in case you're interested in the nitty-gritty. You can check out our complete battery test table, where you can see how all of the smartphones we've tested will compare under your own typical use.
The Motorola One Fusion+ has a single speaker firing out the bottom of the phone. It's not overly loud, and it earned a 'Good' score in our test. The One Fusion+ also offers a balanced audio output with good overall presentation of bass, mids, and highs.
Use the Playback controls to listen to the phone sample recordings (best use headphones). We measure the average loudness of the speakers in LUFS. A lower absolute value means a louder sound. A look at the frequency response chart will tell you how far off the ideal "0db" flat line is the reproduction of the bass, treble, and mid frequencies. You can add more phones to compare how they differ. The scores and ratings are not comparable with our older loudspeaker test. Learn more about how we test here.
Audio output quality
We've recently discontinued our audio output quality test.
The reason for that is that most phones that arrived for testing were already excellent in this regard and whatever difference there was, it was marginal and probably indistinguishable to anything but our lab equipment.
It means you don't know in wich direction you are pointing to, but you know your location as it has gps, in actual google maps use with car it works fine, maybe if you are walking it can be a little bit more confusing.
