Record accidentally a video with a portrait orientation is one of those unpleasant surprises that often discovered too late. However, that will no longer be a problem with the new Motorola One Action. This phone mid-range eradicates this threat with a special lens and wide angle which registers all horizontally, independent of the position of the device. But its features go far beyond. So, here’s everything you need to know about the latest device from Motorola.
Design and display
Phones mid-range rarely have a design that alters the teams most iconic. The Motorola One Action is not the exception to that rule. What is clear is that Motorola wants to establish a style for the series One, because the new computer is in the line of the Motorola One Vision of the beginning of 2019. The bezels are thin, and although its bottom is noticeably thicker, this does not affect the overall style and not noticeable during daily use.
The screen of 6.3 inches is a LCD LTPS IPS with a resolution of 2,520 x 1,080 Full HD, with a measure clear of 432 pixels per inch. In addition, it has an aspect ratio 21:9, as the Sony Xperia 10. As in other Motorola phones One, you’ll find a lens perforated front for selfies.
If you look at the back side, you will see a settings camera triple lens in the upper left corner, with a flash unit bottom. The sensor of the fingerprint is located in the center of the upper half, provided easy access to the most. The headphone connector is located on the top, while the USB-a port, C is on the lower side.
However, you do not get much with regards to resistance to water. The One Action only has a rating IPX2, so you have to avoid any fall in deep water, such as swimming pools and baths. The back is coated with Gorilla Glass, which —even though it’s durable— will be better protected with a sheath.

Software and special functions
The Motorola One Action runs Android 9.0 Foot, so you’ll have the latest features and additions to Google. However, breaking with the tradition of the range One, the models americans can’t run Android One. While the international versions will have the streamlined interface of the Android, editions americans will get a custom Motorola. Why?
