Rugby1940, 28 Sep 2019When is a Moto One not a Moto One -- when it is a Moto One ... moreIt's android one. I think. I saw it in the quick guide or over the box when I bought it i suppose

Utterly disappointed about the android 10 update delay....I was a hardcore fan of motorola phones ever since I had my first android phone moto g1. Pure android experience is the only thing made me opt this phone among many other at least three other phones which beat one zoom in every other department. Some are even cheaper. Motorola has cheated the customers about android updates. Even the security updates also are lagging so that by the time they are rolled out they would have already become outdated. Sheer irresponsible and disappointing attitude by the company.

Android 10 update is still pending. Utterly disappointing to those who ignored all other below par specs just for a pure android phone i guess...I loved Motorola g and z series and has been a hardcore fan of Motorola phones ever since my first first android fone moto g 1. It really made sense for me to buy a solid budget phone which you can use for 2 years or so and update to another with the changing technology. There are atleast 3 phones in the price range in the market right now which beat moto one zoom in almost every aspect

booldega, 08 Sep 2019Does it have HDMI out over USB-C like Moto Z4 ?yes, see xda.

tested ois its awsome

When is a Moto One not a Moto One -- when it is a Moto One Zoom. Why call this a Moto One when it is not an Android One phone like all the other Moto One phones - bad mistake. Like other find this disappointing and misleading, why not Moto G7 Plus Zoom or Moto G8 Zoom. Arguably, in UK and EU this designation could lead to issues with Advertising Standards and Consumer Protection if purchased on its designation and a consumer logically thinking that it was an Android One -- shame, otherwise potentially very good phone.

Dano, 11 Sep 2019One Zoom is not Android one, it's a regular Android. :)The Moto One Zoom is an Android One phone in Sweden, maybe even Europe.

So this has just come up for preorder in Denmark.. 399 Euro. Yikes ! The Pocophone F1 is 260 Euro, Mi 9T is 259 Euro (insanely good value), the excellent Huawei Mate 20 is 360 Euro (!). And so on..

ZloiYuri, 05 Sep 2019Lenovo, you are drunk, go home! For 400€ you can buy Huawei... moreYou are right. I like the looks and the build of this phone but when you realize that there are phones like Samsung Galaxy S10e or Huawei Mate 20, Honor 20 and so on with better chipsets, great quality builds and better cameras, its hard to choose this one. The one unique thing this phone has is Android one and the 3x lossless zoom but one can live without the later.

Disappointed that they have downgraded to non-Android one software. Motorola hasn't been good at updates lately. The One Vision and One Action will likely see a longer time being upgraded to the latest security updates.

I had this phone on my cart @ motorola's webstore but then I realized the SoC doesn't have a great DSP for actual photos. Having great camera sensors and high MP counts won't put out great photos if the A.I/DSP processing it is lacking in so many ways xD

Kind of disappointed that this phone doesn't have band 13 for use on Verizon, though I wouldn't be surprised if Motorola kept it out so that it wouldn't cannibalize their Z lineup. Seems like they drastically improved Night Vision, though.

Looks nice but to those of specs junkies, €400 could get you K20 Pro or even K20 for less money.

It's looking very nice and unique rear camera design, but as usual Moto is over priced.
