Reviews for the Motorola Edge 20 Lite

81.5% Motorola Edge 20 Lite review: Low-priced 5G smartphone with 108 MP camera & 90 Hz OLED | Notebookcheck
Motorola's Edge 20 Lite is an interesting mid-range phone on paper. The cheapest smartphone in the Edge 20 series has some features from the Edge 20 Pro, but the spec sheet belies some shortcomings.
70% Motorola Edge 20 Lite review

The Moto Edge 20 Lite is a curious smartphone. While it has an attractive list of specifications, the competition completely outclasses it in terms of both performance and value. Despite this, it has a great screen, strong battery life and a useful user interface that lends it a strong sense of personality. Though it is let down by its cameras, the lack of stereo speakers and sometimes plodding performance, this is a charming handset to use. Though it won’t be the best pick for anyone in particular, for many people it will be just enough.

Creating a successful mid-range smartphone has never been an easy task. On the one hand, the current budget smartphones have more and more ambitions, on the other hand, the mid-price segment is one of the most competitive. If you were to compare the smartphones that belong to it, based solely on the specs, then the Motorola Edge 20 Lite would be easily outclassed by its rivals. There will always be more efficient models, with better cameras, with a better screen or more interesting equipment (e.g. realme GT Master, One Plus Nord 2, Poco F3 et al.). However, given the full package, Edge 20 Lite is a successful smartphone that has a lot to offer - as long as photographic opportunities aren't your priority. It has a great screen, strong battery, 5G support, good performance and useful software devoid of unnecessary applications.

The Motorola Edge 20 Lite is a decent, reasonably affordable 5G Android phone in most respects. It has a large OLED screen, clean software and good day-to-day performance. However, it costs more than the best of the value-packed competition, the camera fumbles its dynamic range processing, and battery life is shorter than expected.

The Moto Edge 20 Lite on paper doesn’t bring as much to the table as the competition. But with a great HDR OLED screen, good battery life, strong performance and a charming software skin, it will reward anyone willing to take the plunge and pick it up. Sometimes a smartphone is all about experience, and this is one worth having.

The Motorola Edge 20 lineup is here, and the budget option of the bunch — the Edge 20 Lite — comes with a great screen, amazing battery life, good main camera performance, and a beautiful design. It fits perfectly among other options, like the Samsung Galaxy A32, Galaxy A42, and the OnePlus Nord N10. With a price tag of only € 369.99, the Edge 20 Lite is dangerously appealing. Don’t get me wrong, it definitely has its downfalls, a good example being its video shooting capabilities. However, considering the bang for your buck ratio we have here, the positives heavily outnumber the negatives. The display and main camera alone make this device a great choice for anyone on the lookout for a budget daily driver that will cover all the basics and go even beyond that.

Motorola Edge 20 Lite Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
There are three phones from the Edge 20 series and another one, Fusion, will be joining them soon. In this situation, it is very confusing which one to choose. Each phone has different features, the Motorola Edge 20 Lite offers a MediaTek Dimensity chipset for better performance. On the other hand, if you check the battery capacity, the Edge 20 Lite stays ahead of the game. If you’re into gaming, the Edge 20 Lite also delivers faster, quality performance and has a 90Hz refresh rate. Depending on your budget, each phone has the specialty of giving you the highest quality performance. If you are still confused and looking for an alternative option. With that budget, you can find the ZTE Axon 30 smartphone with better specs and performance.

ARM Mali-G57 MP3: Integrated mid range graphics card with 3 clusters. Based on the Valhall architecture.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Dimensity 720: The Dimensity 720 is a mid-range SoC with an integrated 5G modem. It includes four fast ARM Cortex-A76 cores and four power efficient Cortex-A55 cores that can all clock at up to 2 GHz. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.70":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


Motorola: Founded in 1928, the US-based company mainly focuses on communication technology such as smartphones. The original company Motorola Inc was split up in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone division and was taken over by Google in 2012 and Lenovo in 2014.

The company is known for its cell phones and other electronic devices such as smartwatches, tablets and accessories. Motorola was one of the first companies to produce cell phones, and in recent years has also innovated in the areas of 5G technology and modular smartphones (Moto Mods). Motorola is also active in public safety and professional communications, providing solutions for government agencies, businesses and other organizations. The company has operations in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America and employs more than 10,000 people worldwide. 


77.92%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
