Motorola has stuck around for a while, and they have always been known for making reliable products. However, with the new edge phone, they are trying to make a name in the smartphone market by appealing to customers who need something powerful but don’t want all of the bells and whistles that come with most phones. Without further ado, here’s the Motorola Edge Plus review along with specs and features of this phone, so you can decide if it is suitable for your needs and budget for a smartphone.
Motorola Edge Plus Review
First let us look at the Motorola Edge specifications:
- Screen size: 6.7-inch
- CPU: Snapdragon 765
- Storage: 256GB
- RAM: 6GB
- Rear cameras: 64MP
- Battery size: 4,500 mAh
- Battery life: 12:12
- Weight: 6.63 ounces
- Price: $699
- Front camera: 25MP (f/2.0)
The EDGE Design
With inches of 6.4 x 2.8 x 0.37, the Motorola Edge is inherently the same size as the Edge Plus, which comes hardly as a surprise since both phones seem to support the same 6.7-inch Edge OLED panel. As a result, the undulate screen is rather superficial. Motorola has put in a few shortcuts as well. You can now slide your finger alongside the screen to either send for settings which is usually a downward swipe, or apps an upward one, and also swiping left from the action bar can pop up specific shortcuts. If you knew not of these features, you wouldn’t think to use them. The only noticeable feature that the undulate screen possesses is that it makes the Motorola Edge more cumbersome to clasp and more prone to unavoidable taps.
The EDGE Display
Both the Motorola Edge and Edge Plus displays share much more than just the maximum refresh rate, which seems to be the same. They’re undifferentiated from what is being displayed, which is undoubtedly positive progress since watching videos is now so fun on the Edge’s screen. Like its top-priced model, the Edge carefully controls different colors very well. The experience is so pleasant you’d feel like one who is at the cinema thanks to the Motorola Edge 21:9 aspect ratio, which also happens to make the phone trouble-free to operate with one hand.
The EDGE Camera Quality
The large-scale usage of smartphone cameras has prompted technology companies to focus on camera quality in smartphones instead of previous generations of cell phone hardware. As a result, the camera quality on new smartphones rivals and exceeds many traditional consumer cameras on the market today.
Instead of the the108-megapixel sensor on the Plus, the Motorola Edge possesses a 64MP primary camera. Other observation includes:
- A 2x optical zoom.
- A 16MP ultra-wide-angle camera.
- A time-of-flight sensor.
- An 8MP telephoto lens.
The EDGE Battery Life
The Motorola Edge Plus features a large 5,000 mAh battery, translating to a non-stop 10 hours and 55 minutes lasting battery life. The Motorola Edge comes with a smaller battery at 4,500 mAh, but it still lasts longer on a charge, holding out for 12 hours and 12 minutes of non-stop battery life, which enjoys non-stop web surfing. Even with its smaller battery, the Motorola EDGE efficiency is supported by the Snapdragon 756, aiding in its increased battery life.
At $699, the Motorola Edge is squarely placed in the midrange category of 5G-capable phones that aren’t as top-priced as today’s top 5g devices. For example, the Motorola Edge Plus.
The Motorola Edge indeed makes good value for the money while retaining some of the features of the Motorola Edge Plus, such as 5G compatibility and beautiful display. But there are also things that the Edge Plus can’t, like long-lasting charge.
Unfortunately, it features the flaw of the Motorola Edge Plus, which is a camera that falls flat of expectations. And that’s why there isn’t much difference to it when compared to other similar competition.
