Top features to watch out for on the Moto M
A robust full-metal body that’s built like a tank
The Moto M offers you a premium package with its all-metal body. The shell of this smartphone is crafted from aircraft grade premium aluminum, which not only makes the device a stylish phone to own, but also makes it an efficiently durable phone. The phone weighs just about 163g, and its 7.85mm thin frame can slip smoothly into almost any pocket.
The stunning metal-clad body of the Moto M has made Twitter user Abhijit Mohanty excited already. Read his tweet here:
Hardware that makes it the smoothest ride ever
While the 13.97cm (5.5-inch) full-metal design is Moto M’s standout feature, you are likely to be impressed by its speedy hardware too. Under the hood, the smartphone features a lightning-fast 2.2Ghz octa-core processor backed by up to 4GB of RAM. This powerful combination ensures that the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS runs smoothly, your apps load quickly, your videos play without hiccups and your games don’t get bogged down.

A phone that isn’t afraid of water
Who says smartphones and water don’t mix? If you’re looking forward to the day you can go to the beach or that newest water park without fearing for your smartphone, then the Moto M is your best bet. Motorola has made this phone’s full-metal design extra special by giving it a water-repellent coating, which means your Moto M is safe against accidental spills and splashes. Now you no longer have to triple-wrap your smartphone in plastic baggies or worry about a splash of water hitting your precious phone.

A fingerprint sensor that brings data security at your fingertips
In today’s world, smartphones have gone from basic calling and texting devices, to storehouses for personal and even financial information. How do you keep this sensitive information safe? Most Android smartphones in the market today are powerful yet vulnerable to data theft. Sure, you may have opted for a password, PIN code or pattern on your current smartphone. But these offer just thin layers of security that can be hacked with a little effort. This is where the Moto M, with its ultra-fast fingerprint sensor, can help. After all, a person can steal your password but not your fingerprint. Moto M makes for convenient and reliable safety of your data as well as super-fast login.
Twitter user Paul Eriksson likes that the fingerprint sensor allows users to secure their Moto M smartphones with very little effort in his tweet here:

Stay in touch all the time
No smartphone will do you much good if it is always running out of juice in a short time. But with Moto M, battery life will never be an issue. The phone comes with 3050mAh battery, which when fully charged, can keep your Moto M running for an entire day with moderate use. The device also features a 10W fast-charge capability, which means you can power up your Moto M in minutes during that short flight layover.

Makes data storage worries a thing of the past
Noticed that many smartphones often offer internal storage up to 16GB only? That’s very limited space for storing your apps and multimedia in the long term. Moto M, however, answers your call for more on-board storage space with two variants offering internal memory of 32GB and 64GB respectively. Think it’s not enough for storing your high-resolution photos and videos, and music? The smartphone also allows external storage by supporting up to 128 GB via a microSD card.
The Moto M will be available on Flipkart at a fantastic starting price of INR 15,999. Also, make sure you check out the early bird bank card and exchange offers, available #OnlyOnFlipkart. You can make it yours by placing your order in the open sale on 14th December, 23:59 hours.
