Reviews for the Motorola Edge 50 Pro

87.6% Motorola Edge 50 Pro smartphone review – See the world in Pantone colors | Notebookcheck
Very important on Motorola's new top-of-the-range phone: style. Eccentric color variants, Pantone-certified colors on its screen and camera, and lots of customization options to make the phone fit individual users. But are its inner workings just as impressive?
Motorola Edge 50 Pro review
Source: GSM Arena English
The Pro isn't the top model in the Motorola Edge lineup this time around, but it nicely slots in below flagship territory. It offers a very capable camera setup for stills with a main camera that's a champion at light gathering, a 3x zoom camera in a segment where dedicated zoom cameras are rare and an ultrawide that's got autofocus and puts it to good use. And then it tops it all off with some excellent selfies for good measure. Check out our video review to learn ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW about the phone's top features, build and screen quality, battery life, performance, and camera image quality.

The Pro isn't the top model in the Motorola Edge lineup this time around, but it nicely slots somewhere below flagship territory. Even with the remarkably-specced Ultra, the Edge 50 Pro still manages to offer a very capable camera setup for stills - a champion at light gathering of a main camera is joined by a solid telephoto in a segment where dedicated zoom cameras are rare and an ultrawide that's got autofocus and puts it to good use. And then it tops it all off with some excellent selfies for good measure. Motorola says it's big on experiences and transcending the specs wars, which is convenient when the chipset isn't winning any. But the newly renamed Hello UI is a sizable chunk of the experience with an Edge 50 Pro and it's a nice blend of the visual simplicity of 'stock' Android and the personality and functionality that Motorola has built and continued to develop on top of it. All things considered, the Motorola Edge 50 Pro may just be worth a recommendation - with a medium-sized asterisk about regional pricing and market context.

80% Motorola Edge 50 Pro Review: Best Mid-Range Phone You Can Buy?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Motorola Edge 50 Pro is a great phone that's competitively priced. However, in some areas, you may be better off purchasing other phones. For example, if you want better performance, you could opt for the Oppo Reno 11 Pro (Review). However, it lacks an IP rating and wireless charging and offers similar camera performance. Then there's the Vivo V30, which offers slightly better camera performance and the same chipset. However, it lacks wireless charging and a few other features. Motorola Edge 50 Pro offers a lot more features than some of its competitors. I honestly think that this is probably one of the best smartphones in the price segment. The cameras aren't amazing, but they're not bad, and you get usable sensors. The display is excellent, you get a standout design, wireless charging, an IP68 rating, and a lot more. The Motorola Edge 50 Pro is on the edge of greatness and is definitely one of the best mid-range phones you can buy today.

Motorola Edge 50 Pro review: Stands out in segment rife with good options
Source: Business Standard English
Priced at Rs 35,999 for the top-end model, the Motorola Edge 50 Pro is as a well-rounded smartphone catering to diverse user preferences. Its standout features, including the 144Hz refresh rate display, AI-enhanced camera system, rapid wired and wireless charging, and top-tier protection against water and dust, provide a competitive edge over its counterparts. However, the device is not without flaws, notably in its imaging capabilities. Nevertheless, the Motorola Edge 50 Pro presents a comprehensive package, prioritising overall user experience over individual features.

80% Motorola Edge 50 Pro review: Should you buy this new AI smartphone under ₹35,000?
Source: The Times of India English
The Motorola Edge 50 Pro boosts a crisp curved display with a great viewing experience. The performance of the device also provides a great experience, making it a competitive smartphone in the mid-range segment. However, Motorola may have worked on the colour processing of the images, which could have been the star of the device as portrayed in the launch event. Overall, the Motorola Edge 50 Pro is a great option for people who are looking for a great-performing smartphone under the range of Rs.35000.

80% I used Motorola’s Edge 50 Pro for a week, and here’s the truth about the AI phone
Source: The Indian Express English
The Edge 50 Pro may not be a flagship, but it feels close to a premium smartphone. I feel this phone combines AI, a powerful processor, and speedy RAM to deliver a great mobile device under Rs 35,000. Yes, its AI-enhanced cameras are also respectable but don’t come close to the iPhone 15 and Pixel 8. I would like to see more Gen AI features on the Edge 50 Pro in the future via a software update. That would make the Edge 50 Pro a lot more interesting device than what it is today. Maybe phone companies need the magic of AI to differentiate their devices from others.

70% Motorola Edge 50 Pro Review: Nearly perfect, but camera misses the mark
Source: Think Digit English
The Motorola Edge 50 Pro is a nearly perfect mid-range smartphone. For the features on offer such as IP68 dust and water resistance, 50 W wireless charging, and a 144 Hz pOLED display, it has been priced competitively starting at merely ₹31,999. The Motorola Edge 50 Pro also has one of the most gorgeous designs on the market in its price segment – the colour-matched aluminium frame, the soft vegan back, and the delightful colour choices make it a treat for the eyes. You also get a colour-accurate display, decent performance, and super fast 125 W charging speeds. However, the camera experience is a chink in its armour. The camera array, while impressive, hasn’t been tuned exceptionally well leading to some issues with skin tones and general colour reproduction. The Motorola ‘Edge’ series of smartphones is something special.

85% Motorola Edge 50 Pro review: stylish, feature-packed and how!
Source: 91mobiles English
The Motorola Edge 50 Pro is poised to be the smartphone to beat in the sub-Rs 35,000 segment as of now. The handset makes a compelling case for itself with its premium and flagship-grade specifications, such as a reliable telephoto camera and 50W wireless charging, typically found on smartphones priced a notch higher. The overall day-to-day performance of the device remains on par with its competitors. However, the Motorola smartphone surpasses its closest rivals, the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ (review) and Vivo V30 (review), with its vibrant 144Hz refresh rate display, 125W fast charging speeds, clean software experience, and striking IP68-certified design. Overall, the Motorola Edge 50 Pro with its competitive pricing remains a strong contender within the segment.

Motorola Edge 50 Pro hands-on impressions: Lookin' sharp
Source: Android Authority English
In my limited time with the Motorola Edge 50 Pro, it’s been hard not to be impressed by the hardware. It looks good, performs well, and includes a range of features you can’t find in alternatives. What’s not to like? It isn’t perfect, though, as the promised software upgrade support comes across as lackluster at just three major upgrades. It’s also a bit pricey, starting at Rs 31,999 (~$383), and going up to Rs 35,999 (~$431). In the US, it may not compete well with the likes of the upcoming Pixel 8a.

80% Motorola Edge 50 Pro First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Motorola Edge 50 Pro comes with a 4,500mAh battery, and the 12GB RAM variant, which we're reviewing, gets a 125W TurboCharger in the box. The 8GB RAM variant will get a slower 68W charger. The phone charges super fast with the 125W charger, and you also get 50W wireless charging support. At a starting price of Rs. 31,999, the Motorola Edge 50 Pro seems like an easy recommendation. However, we suggest waiting for our full review to decide whether to go for the new Edge 50 Pro or choose one of its alternatives, such as the recently launched Nothing Phone 2a (Review).

Qualcomm Adreno 720: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets, integrated in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 SoC.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.
