Last week, Motorola announced its One Vision smartphone for the Indian market. Priced at Rs 19,999, the One Vision is Motorola’s latest offering in the affordable midrange segment with some never-before-seen features, apart from the two gorgeous colours variants Motorola is offering in the Indian market. The phone differs itself from its rivals with its unique 21:9 display with a hole-punch camera cutout.
The One Vision also has a few other features that could make you go for it. For starters, it is part of the Android One program and comes with a clean stock Android interface that’s guaranteed to be updated to Android Q and Android R. It also looks stylish with its unique gradient pattern. Paired with a Samsung Exynos 9609 chipset and a 48-megapixel primary rear camera, this is a great package for those who want a phone under Rs 20,000.
But what if you want to have a look at all the other options? What if the One Vision doesn’t fit your bill for the price? We have narrowed down some of the great alternatives you can consider.
Best alternatives to Motorola One Vision
Poco F1 (from Rs 17,999)
If specs are all that matters to you, the Poco F1 easily tramples the Motorola One Vision. Compared to midrange chips in this price, the Poco F1 uses last year’s flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset. This makes it a good deal for those who only care about performance. On top of that, the Poco F1 comes with a 4000mAh battery with support for fast charging, IR Face Unlock and a pair of good cameras. It runs on MIUI 10 with the Poco launcher and this might irk many who prefer a clean and bloat-free user experience. Also, the phone is made of plastic and it sports a design that makes the Motorola One Vision look extremely modern.
Samsung Galaxy A50 (from Rs 18,499)
The Galaxy A50 is more like the One Vision in its approach to a smartphone experience. The Galaxy A50 uses an almost similar chipset as the One Vision and even gets a gradient design, albeit with a plastic rear panel. However, as with most Samsung devices, the Galaxy A50 scores high with its 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display sporting tiny waterdrop notch on top. It also gets an in-screen fingerprint sensor. The highlight has to be its triple camera setup, including a wide-angle camera. With a 15W fast charging equipped 4000mAh battery, the Galaxy A50 is a solid package at this price.
Oppo F11 Pro (from Rs 19,999)
The Oppo F11 Pro has a seen a massive price cut and is now selling for Rs 19,999. At this price, the F11 Pro has to be the most advanced phone you can buy right now. The highlight of the phone has to be its pop-up selfie camera that makes for a display with no notch or hole-punch cutout for the camera. It also sports beautiful gradient colours, 20W fast charging for its 4000mAh battery and a 48-megapixel primary rear camera. The MediaTek Helio P70 is powerful enough for daily tasks but don’t expect great gaming performance.
Nokia 8.1 (from Rs 19,999)
The Nokia 8.1 is another great buy at Rs 19,999 if you prefer a premium build and design along with a clean Android experience. The Nokia 8.1 is also an Android One phone and coupled with a Snapdragon 710 chipset, it’s one of the fastest phones you can buy in this price bracket. The cameras also impressed us while the display gets support for HDR+ content.
