The Motorola Edge+ while filling the void in the flagship market, slots above the OnePlus 8 Pro and below Samsung’s Galaxy S20 lineup. Finding a sweet spot with respect to hardware and performance. 

Display

The Motorola Edge+ features a 6.67 inch AMOLED display with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The display has a 2340 x 1080px resolution with 90 degree edge on both sides. A 90Hz refresh rate which features an automatic switch to 60Hz refresh rates on low battery. The 10 bit display is also HDR 10+ rated and the phone utilizes the edge in several ways.  The most interesting of which is the ability to add trigger buttons to the edge of the screen. These will act as tactile buttons during gaming on games like PubG Mobile and COD Mobile. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. 

The edge also is used to navigate through the UI. can be used to pull down the notification shade, pull up the apps, jump into multi tasking and also access shortcuts.

The Edge has lighting effects which also appear during charging or can be customised for notifications. 

Hardware 

The Motorola Edge+ features a impressive mig of hardware under the hood. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 ties in the main compute with the Adreno 650 GPU for graphics. This is packed with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage. this combination puts serious hurt on smartphones like the Galaxy S20+ which feature exynos chipsets and lower RAM and storage. 

The Moto Edge+ also ties in a massive 5000 mAh battery although charging is limited to 18W. Despite the largest battery in segment the Edge+ loses out on rapid charge which can be seen in other devices. 

Camera

The Motorola Edge+ has an impressive mix of cameras. Starting with the main 108 MP, f/1.8 Sony sensor. The main sensor also capture 6K video and is also capable of ultra smooth video thanks to software and hardware based video stabilisation. 

The second camera is a 16 MP, f/2.2 ultra wide camera which also doubles up as a macro camera. This is one of the best uses of the camera space much better than the 2 MP or 4 MP macro sensors seen on other devices. The third camera is an 8MP telephoto camera. The cameras are paired up with a TOF sensor to improve depth mapping. 

The front camera has a 25 MP, f/2.0 sensor which is capable of portrait shots and slow motion video. 

Other Aspects

The Motorola Edge+ is a return to flagship device for Motorola. While the company has focused it’s efforts in the US and EU the brand has stayed away from launching premium handsets in India. The Motorola Edge+ changes that. 

The company promises updates for 2 generations of Android at a minimum. So it runs on Android 10 and will be at the least updated to Android 12. The UI also plays in with Motorola’s previous devices. Stock Android no custom skins or UI, no bloatware and no advertisements. The one Moto app to control some smartphone features like the Edge and Moto Gestures. 

The Moto Edge+ is priced at Rs. 74999 with a permanent discount of Rs. 7500. Effective pricing the phone at Rs. 67500. 

Motorola Edge+ Does miss out on some key things like any kind of water resistance rating. Even though the phone has a water repellent nano coating. The phone also limits charging to 18w while some phones offer upwards of 30W.
