Reviews for the Motorola Edge

80.6% Motorola Edge Smartphone Review – 5G without Bezels | Notebookcheck
A display that flows seamlessly around the edges is the Edge's most striking and unique design element. It also features a modern triple-camera array, stereo speakers, and support for 5G. We take a closer look at the edgeless smartphone.

The Motorola Edge feels like a mid-range phone imitating a premium one, and it shows, with a few rough edges like a fingerprint sensor which isn’t the easiest to use, and cameras that take pictures which aren’t the best we’ve seen. However this is still far from your average mid-range phone, and it feels good in the hand and looks great.

Though it looks the same as the premium Edge Plus, the Motorola Edge lacks the power of its bigger sibling - and many similarly-priced rivals too. But what you won't get at such a cheap price is the stunning 6.7in OLED Endless Edge display. There's also a good, but not great, suite of cameras available and a decent 4500mAh battery that'll boast a full day of charge. It won't beat the competition in terms of performance, but it certainly looks better!

The Motorola Edge is a great phone, especially at the price. It feels like a true flagship and doesn’t really sacrifice much to reach the lower price. It’s fast, has a good camera, 5G and it’s one of the best looking phones around.

If you want an eye-catching phone with a curved screen like few others, at a reasonable price point, and which lasts for an epic amount of time, then the Motorola Edge will more than give the competition a run for their money.

Hands on: Motorola Edge review
Source: Techradar English
The Motorola Edge seems to be a mid-range phone imitating a premium one; it doesn’t do a flawless job at that, with a few rough edges like its fingerprint sensor which isn’t too easy to use, and cameras which take pictures that seem worse off than the specs would suggest. However this is still far from your average mid-range phone, as it feels great and looks good.

The vanilla Edge is great on that price, and we do recommend it. The Motorola's recent sabbatical from the upper mid-range tier could be the only thing standing in the way of the new Edge series. And that's why it just may take some time for people to regain their trust in Motorola's high-end phones.

Determined to put a lid on the ever-increasing 5G phone prices, Motorola opted for the next best alternative to Snapdragon 865 with its new Edge phone, and equipped it with the more cost-efficient Snapdragon 765 instead, Qualcomm's first integrated 5G chipset. It also added a huge battery, 64MP camera, and... a headphone jack, for one of the most complete $700 packages you can find on a 5G-capable phone.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.


80.94%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
