As we make a quick comparison between the two, we can appreciate what the One Zoom has to offer – but at a slight 50 USD price bump. But that’s not to say that the One Hyper is no good, far from it.

For starters, the One Hyper sports a slightly larger 6.5-inch Full HD+ screen with IPS technology. This means you get more screen real estate that can be put to good use. Extra space combined with ultra-narrow bezels means you can immerse yourself in your desired content anywhere and anytime.

Under the hood of the One Hyper is very much similar with the One Zoom though.

Sporting the Snapdragon 675 chipset paired with a fast Kryo octa-core processor, good mid-range graphics and 4GB RAM. Good enough for all your daily dose of apps and some gaming along the way.

Camera-wise, it is a give and take with the One Hyper. Although there’s only a dual camera shooter, it sure packs a hell of a punch with the 64MP+8MP camera combination. Not only that, there’s the 32MP pop-up selfie camera to cater for all your selfies. A cool feature that starts to become more mainstream these days. It lets you capture incredibly detailed, high-resolution 64 MP photos and 32MP selfies in any light condition, with the Quad Pixel technology and Night Vision technology.

In terms of storage, there’s only one option available which is with the 128GB of internal space. You can easily add up to a maximum of 1TB of space via the microSD expansion slot, which is nice.

As for the battery side of things, we find the One Hyper with a right amount of 4000 mAh battery capacity. This would ensure no problem to supply the necessary juice to power up the smartphone for a good day or two.

Perhaps the best part about it all, is the fact that it runs on the latest Android 10.0 operating system. Not only that, Android One is the weapon of choice. This means that there won’t be unnecessary bloatware running around without you knowing it. You get to decide what’s the best apps to install and to run on your precious device.

Conclusion:

Motorola Moto One Hyper seems like a mixed bag with its large 6.5-inch Full HD+ IPS screen, mid-range performance, 64MP dual primary camera, 32MP pop-up selfie camera, large 4000 mAh battery and the latest and greatest software running the show.

Motorola Moto One Hyper is currently available for 399 USD and comes in three amazing colours: Fresh Orchid, Deepsea Blue and Dark Amber.
