With the One Zoom, gone are the days where you'll have to deal with grainy or blurry shots when you try to zoom in on subjects that are far away. The One Zoom promises high quality and detail in your images thanks to the use of the 8-megapixel telephoto lens.

This comes with a 3x high-resolution optical zoom and a 10x hybrid zoom, and there's even optical image stabilization to help prevent blurriness from shaky hands.

If you value great photos but aren't keen on paying an astronomical sum for a phone that leads to them, the One Zoom is your phone. The best camera is the one you have with you, and that's usually the one on your phone. But, your pictures shouldn't have to suffer just because they're not being taken with a proper DSLR.

Well-rounded features & a wallet-friendly price tag make this a standout device

It's no secret that smartphones have become increasingly expensive due to the ever-expanding list of functions.  But it doesn't have to be that way and Motorola is sticking to that mindset. The One Zoom has a well-rounded list of features with a wallet-friendly price tag.

Beyond the all the camera features, you get a big, beautiful display at 6.4-inches with an almost edge-to-edge design. There's a big battery so you can use the phone longer. And, even if you manage to deplete it faster than you think, the One Zoom supports Motorola's TurboPower charging.

It offers 128GB of storage as well, which means loads and loads of room for all those beautiful pictures that you're taking. On top of that, there's a 3.5mm headphone port so you can plug in wired headphones without a dongle, or use Bluetooth. It' your choice. All of these features only cost the consumer $450. Compare that to similar devices which cost hundreds more, and the One Zoom starts to look really enticing. As it should. Hats off to Motorola, as the One Zoom is a device worthy of recognition.
