Motorola Philippines now offers the Moto M smartphone here in the country. It has an official price of ₱14,999.00.


Design and Display

The ‘M’ in Motorola Moto M stands for ‘Metal’. Hence, it’s not surprising that it comes in a gold-colored Aluminum body. It can also survive accidental water spills or a light rain thanks to its water repellent nano-coating.

It flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD screen with slightly curved 2.5D arc edges and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 that protects it from scratches.


Processor and Storage

The Motorola Moto M uses the new MediaTek Helio P15 chipset. This is made up of a 2.2GHz octa core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU and an ARM Mali-T860 graphics processor. There’s also 4GB of RAM and a near-stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

It has 32GB of built-in storage and a microSD card slot for expansion. Each unit has two years of free Google Photos storage at full resolution.
