Let’s start from the beginning. The first impression of this smartphone is that it is simple and elegant. It is made of aluminum metal, an endurable material; the dimensions are 15.00 x 7.34 x 0.82 cm, it is big enough but it is not uncomfortable at all.

It is available only in black, but this color gives to the smartphone such an elegant look. A very nice detail, regarding design, is a silver edge surrounding the phone. Besides, the back of this smartphone has the classic Motorola logo and above is the camera, which stands out due to the design.

Even though it is a big smartphone, it is also very lightweight, only 157 grams. And I have to say, that in my opinion, Motorola is a brand distinguished by endurable but lightweight devices.



The Moto Qingyou XT1799 has a 5.2 inches touchscreen. It is an LCD capacitive screen, this means, it is very sensitive and it responds with light touches. The screen resolution is 1080×1920 Pixels and it displays 16 million colors.

This smartphone has a multi-touch screen; this is very cool if you like to play games on your cell phone, for instance. Besides, the screen is a Corning Gorilla glass scratch resistant, it was designed to be light, thin and resistant. This way, you can save your phone in your purse or backpack without worrying about scratches.



This smartphone is equipped with one of the latest Android OS, the Nougat 7.1.1. This Android version is faster than previous versions and will make your battery last longer.

The user experience in this version is enhanced; pop up notifications appear stacked at the top of the screen and you can expand those you want to see immediately instead of having a bunch of messy notifications.

Multitasking is another useful feature included in this Android version, you can switch between two apps quickly; if you want to copy a link and paste it into a message window, for instance. In brief, the version on board this smartphone is excellent.

Of course, it has some useful apps pre-installed such as Audio Player, Google Play Store, Google Maps, Google Navigation, Flashlight, Email, Clock, E-book, Calendar, Calculator, Notebook, World Clock, Stopwatch, Browser, FM Radio and Sound Recorder.



The Moto Qingyou XT1799 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, an octa-core processor clocked up to 1,4 GHz. In terms of speed, maybe you are not going to notice a difference compared to other smartphones; however, you will notice a difference regarding power saving and overheating.

Thanks to this processor, the charge of your smartphone will last longer and you will be able to use heavy apps or games without overheating the device.

Besides, it has 4 GB of RAM memory, 32 GB of internal storage that you can expand up to 128 GB.

This smartphone also has G-Sensor Control, Distance Sensor, Light Sensor, Electronic Compass, Gyroscope, Fingerprint Recognition. We are going to discuss this last feature later in this review.


In addition to an elegant design, latest OS, fast processor and high storage, people always look for a high-quality camera. It does not matter if it is because you enjoy professional photography, but you don’t like heavy professional camera, or you just like to remember good moments through pictures; a good camera will be a top feature.

In this case, we have a rear 16 MP camera with a LED flash and we also have a front 16 MP camera. For a front camera, this is more than enough. Image resolution is about 4608 x 3456 Pixels, so you will see even the smallest detail in your pictures.

Now, if you enjoy sharing content on social media; both front and rear camera resolution plus the main features it has such as autofocus, continuous shooting, face detection, digital zoom, self-timer, touch focus, face beauty, panorama shot and more; will make you look like a celebrity.

In my opinion, regarding camera; the only disadvantage is that the front camera does not have flash.

Fingerprint scanner

If the security of your data is one of your priorities, you should definitely consider this smartphone. Motorola was the first company to offer this feature in smartphones and now they keep it for your data security and privacy.

The Moto Qingyou XT1799 is equipped with a fingerprint scanner, it is located under the screen and it also works as a home button.

Everyone has a unique mark on their fingers, it is impossible to change it or remove it. So this locking screen system is more reliable than face recognition, for instance; because facial traits can be similar among people.

Battery and Power

This smartphone carries a non-removable Lithium-ion battery and its capacity is 3000 mAh. Remember that some features of the Moto Qingyou XT1799 such as processor and operating system will make the charge last longer.

The charge will last up to 23 hours playing music, 6.5 hours playing videos and 8 hours browsing the internet.
