Motorola announced its return to the flagship space with the launch of the Motorola Edge+ weeks ago. Priced at US$999, the phone has now made its way over to DxOMark where it failed to outperform flagships from last year like the OnePlus 7 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10+.

Weeks ago, Motorola debuted its new flagship phone, the Motorola Edge+. The Edge+ marks Motorola's return to the premium segment since the release of the Moto Z2 Force back in 2017. Motorola phones have typically offered slightly worse cameras than the competition, and the new Edge+ seems to continue that trend, if DxOMark's evaluation of the phone is anything to go by.

The Motorola Edge records an overall score of 113. That's on par with the Galaxy S10+ (113), and the OnePlus 7 Pro (114). In the still photography test, the Motorola Edge+ made away with a score of 119, versus the OnePlus 7 Pro (122) and Galaxy S10+ (120). In the video category, it earned a score of 101. That's where it claws back the gap against the OnePlus (98) and Samsung (97).

Those numbers aren't bad, but are just not as good as one would expect, especially from a US$999 phone. The Motorola Edge+'s main camera is a 108 MP 1/1.33-inch Samsung sensor. We've seen that same sensor used on the Mi Note 10 Pro and Mi 10 Pro, and both phones handily outperform the Edge+ across the board. 

As always, DxOMark's aren't to be considered gospel. You'd be better served evaluating the sample shots yourself.
