Capture more of what really matters with Motorola One Action. Capture breath-taking, ultra-wide angle shots that fit more perfectly into the palm. Then show the resulting video to friends and family and watch the tale unfold on an impressive wide screen. You can even share your video with the One’s built-in viewer. No matter where your friends are, wherever they’re going, you can easily email, stream, or download your video to share with the rest of the world.
The innovative, eye-capturing abilities of the One Action make it a wonder to many. The front and rear cameras on the handset have optical zoom, allowing for amazing pictures of any location – indoors or out. To top it all off, the One Action also has a front-facing infrared camera for capturing those rare, yet delightful, scenes in the wild. With the incredible clarity of a professional camera and the comfort of a large, touch-sensitive screen, the One Action takes good care of its users, too.
The powerful imaging system of the One Action means you get the best of a point-and-shoot camera and a high-tech, high resolution LCD screen. A simple act of pressing the shutter button will enable the camera to capture an image. Once you’ve captured your scene, you can upload your photos straight to your chosen social media site. You can even send your photos to friends and family by emailing them directly from the phone’s built-in e-mail client.
Unlike other handset devices that force you to squeeze the display in order to take a picture, the One Action allows you to simply touch the display in order to take the shot. And thanks to the power of the AT&T Visual Core, which processes the data from the sensor and delivers the smoothest picture you’ll ever get from a smartphone camera, you don’t have to worry about extra noise or the quality of the image. The handset is also capable of shooting in a variety of modes including standard, fun, outdoor, sports and panoramic.
Another fantastic feature of this point-and-shoot smartphone is the ability to switch from the portrait mode to video mode automatically with the tap of a single button. The Motorola One Action includes a built-in, resistive screen that’s touch sensitive so you don’t need to strain your hands or arms when taking a picture. Another great thing about this unit is the fact that it has an optical zoom lens that gives you the ability to zoom in on your subjects. This is perfect for making sure you get that one-of-a-kind picture you’ve been longing to take.
The biggest highlight of the phone’s design, however, is the 5.5-inch Super AMOLED capacitive multi-touch screen which looks stunning. It’s also incredibly bright, sharp, colorful and offers superb viewing features. You can use it to browse the web, enjoy your favorite entertainment apps, watch videos, take pictures and even play games without having to adjust your vision. The front-facing camera of this Motorola One action is also quite impressive, rivaling many of the better digital cameras out there.
The Motorola One Action has a few drawbacks aside from the size, which is that it’s not as powerful as some of its competitors. Even though the handset has a powerful processor, it can’t seem to find the same power in other mid-range smartphones like the iPhone 4 and HTC Evo Shift. It also lacks the flash that some phones have, although the One Action has a really nice flash, which easily ignites during night. Overall, however, this isn’t a bad selling handset. If you’re looking for an affordable smartphone with a decent screen and solid performance, then this could be a good choice.
When using the camera on the Motorola One Action, you’ll notice the lack of optical zoom in the device, but this is only noticeable if you’re taking an excellent shot. With the front-facing camera on this handset, there’s actually no optical zoom, instead Motorola has chosen to implement an aspect ratio. This allows the camera to capture an image in a portrait mode, but still retain the ability to use optical zoom in other modes. That said, this aspect ratio seems a little odd on a phone which is designed to highlight the individual details of your shot.
Another little annoyance is the lack of screen real estate on the 6.3-inch screen, even on a quad-core smartphone. This makes reading text on the phone difficult, especially when you’re not looking at the display. Fortunately, however, the phone also has a large display, which means you can view images at their true size. This helps make it easier to browse through images.
In the end, the Motorola One Action might not be the best choice for professional photographers or people who prefer to take images from the point of view of the camera. For individuals who want to take pictures from all angles, however, this could be the perfect handset. It has all of the features you would expect from a top-of-the-line smartphone and performs strongly when it comes to both the video and photo experience. Despite the little negatives mentioned above, the Motorola One Action is a strong phone with great functionality and design.
