6 Problems and Issues of Motorola Moto E3 Power (EXPLAINED)

Problems and Issues of Motorola Moto E3 Power (Cons)

This article is about the Motorola Moto E3 Power Problems, Issues and Cons.

Compared to the last year variant it has improved considerably in a number of departments. It has now more RAM, better display and of course a larger one, higher camera resolution, massive battery, clean Android Marshmallow and the lists goes on and on. But along with all those there are some Motorola Moto E3 Power problems, issues and cons.


Below are the lists of Motorola Moto E3 Power problems and issues along with disadvantages, demerits, bugs, cons, downsides and negatives:

1. The primary camera cannot shoot videos in full HD resolution, only 720p is possible at max. I am asking because there are tons on smartphones which can record up to 1080p.

2. Second Moto E3 Power issues or cons is that it does not have LED notification light.

3. Another issues or cons is that is that there is no fingerprint sensor.

4. There is no gyroscope sensor. This is not a major problems or cons but for augmented reality games or virtual reality headsets gyroscope is an important piece of sensor.

5. There is no dedicated navigational touch buttons which is another disadvantages. All of them are placed on the screen itself.

6. And the last Motorola Moto E3 Power problems or issues is that there is no compass (e-compass or magnetometer) with the device.

My Verdict: Despite the cons its still a very good phone. However if in case if you cannot compromise the problems then follow the link below for a better alternative smartphone.
