- Motorola Moto One Fusion+ price in India has been increased by Rs 500.
- The Moto One Fusion+ now costs Rs 17,499, which is reflecting on Flipkart.
- With the price hike, its potential to fend off rivals seems weakened.
Motorola Moto One Fusion+ has become dearer in India. The one-month-old smartphone is now selling for Rs 17,499, which is Rs 500 more than the launch price. Motorola has quietly increased the price of the Moto One Fusion+ on Flipkart right after its sale today at 12 pm. While the company did make the announcement for the sale earlier in the day, it did not specify any forthcoming changes to the price of the Moto One Fusion+. With the price hike, the "value for money" quotient of Moto One Fusion+ has dropped even further, considering the sub-Rs 20,000 market was recently shaken up by the Poco M2 Pro.
Motorola Moto One Fusion+ Price in India
The Moto One Fusion+ with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage now costs Rs 17,499, as opposed to its original price of Rs 16,999 that the company announced back in June. The new price is now reflecting on Flipkart with the "coming soon" banner for the next sale. This means the next batch of Moto One Fusion+ will be pricier than what the company has sold so far. If you managed to get yourself a Moto One Fusion+ unit in the sales that were held today and before that, you got the deal Rs 500 cheaper.
Motorola has not said why it has increased the price, but it could be related to the increase in taxes, which has also been the reason behind the price hikes of other smartphones.
Should you buy Moto One Fusion+ now?
For its original price of Rs 16,999, the Moto One Fusion+ had a few things in its favour and those that could entice a buyer amid options such as Realme 6, Redmi Note 9, and others. In our review, we found the Moto One Fusion+ did fairly well in certain departments, such as the performance, cameras, and battery, but it did not impress us with its iterative and rather boring design.
We felt that Motorola was somehow trying to fend off the competition by giving the Moto One Fusion+ its look but, instead, it ended up creating a device with a poor build that desperately tries to be upmarket in the sub-Rs 20,000 range.
But do not shrug off the device for just its looks. It emerged as a powerful device for its price in our review and we solemnly liked the cameras on the Moto One Fusion+. Its 5000mAh battery is one of the plus points while Motorola's affinity of stock-like Android won us over its counterparts that are either full of bloatware or have a poorly-crafted interface.
Whatever I said about the Moto One Fusion+ hitherto is based on the original price of Rs 16,999. But the new cost of Rs 17,499 makes it difficult for Moto One Fusion+ to brave the competition. We have the freshly-launch Poco M2 Pro for Rs 14,999 that has a Snapdragon 720G processor, which could theoretically be slightly less powerful than the Snapdragon 730G used on the Moto One Fusion+. For their real-world performance, there might not be any discernible differences between the two smartphones. You will go for Moto One Fusion+ for the sheer Android experience that it offers and, of course, its worthy cameras. But if you are searching for a looker in the category, you can skip Moto One Fusion+ and go for Poco M2 Pro.
