- 80AVERAGE CRITIC SCORE10 ReviewsAndroid Authority80Action camera hero or budget flop?Motorola's experimental budget phone doesn’t entirely stick the landing, but if you want a cheap handset with smooth performance, clean software, and a quirky, GoPro-like video camera, the Motorola One Action is well worth a look.T3100Budget doesn't get better than thisThe Motorola One Action is one of the best budget smartphones money can buy. It has all the drive your average Joe will ever need, and more than enough built-in storage to match, a camera that won't disappoint, a screen that's simply fantastic, and it'll last a full working day.TechRadar80Motorola calls Action on an affordable Android One phoneLike the Motorola One Vision immediately before it, the Motorola One Action is a strong and stylish Android One phone with exemplary poise and performance. Anyone on a strict budget looking to shoot lots of fluid video should take particular note.phoneArena80A phone with an action cameraThe downside is the lack of mounting options, so it’s not a straight-up replacement for an action camera. More like a secondary option. As a smartphone, it also delivers in the key areas -- the battery life is dependable, the storage is plentiful, the performance is acceptable. It’s not a metal-and-glass jewel, and its camera is certainly not top-tier, but these things kind of go with the midrange territory.GSM Arena80Motorola One Action ReviewThe Motorola One Action's one defining feature is also sort of its curse. The thing is, most phones in its price range already have ultra wide angle cameras and those would be ultra wide cameras you can also take pictures with, unlike the Action's video-only implementation. And it's not like the One Action impresses when it comes to the basics -- its display is only so-so in the tests, battery life leaves a lot to be desired, and the selfie cam takes up a lot of space on the front, both physically and in software.Hardware Heaven80A Deal Of An Android One PhoneAside from the camera, other aspects of the One Action are enticing, too. The 21:9 1080p HD IPS display looks great at any viewing angle, although it's not the brightest in outdoor settings. The polycarbonate body looks great and feels premium. Finally, not only did Motorola endow the phone with a generous 128 GB apportionment of UFS 2.0 storage, but there's also a micro SD card slot for more.Neowin70It has a dedicated video camera, for some reasonThere are two key value propositions here. One is that it's an Android One device, and that means it's a mostly-stock Android experience that should get updates faster than other phones. Sadly, this doesn't work out. It's still on Android 9.0 Pie, and the mostly-stock experience is really the same as any other Motorola device. The other is the dedicated video camera. Again, I appreciate the idea of taking landscape video while holding the phone vertically, but I'm not sure that it's enough. I'd rather have had a proper ultra-wide sensor that I can take pictures with.Notebookcheck80Motorola smartphone unfit for YouTube fansAt first glance, the Motorola One Action looks quite impressive, what with its good hardware, modern design and its innovative action camera. However, the so-called action cam seems a bit half-baked, because the smartphone is not water-proof.Android Police70The Motorola One Action gives the Moto G a run for its moneyIf you take a lot of videos, the Action Cam is nice to have, but I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s worth buying the phone for that feature alone. Battery life is probably my biggest concern with this handset, but I think that could be improved over time with updates to the OS and the errant Google Play Services.TrustedReviews80Moto One Action ReviewSome of the Motorola One Action’s supposed advancements are slightly thin. This is not a huge step forward from the G7 Plus, but does seem a more well-rounded phone than the spec-hungry One Vision. The "action camera" won’t actually be useful for everyone, but it’s unusual and lets you take very stable-looking widescreen videos without holding your phone on its side.
