Short description Motorola Edge

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 4 modules (64 MP Wide, 8 MP Telephoto, 16 MP UltraWide, TOF 3D camera), and the front camera here turned out to be very high quality, which can make beautiful selfies. And Motorola Edge has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Versions: XT2063-3.

Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Motorola Edge introduced a company Motorola in April 2020. It has Android version 10, which if you want, you can update to version 12. This new smartphone has also received support for high-speed 5G networks so that you can watch very high-quality 4K or even 8K videos on YouTube, play online games and not feel any inconvenience associated with the slow speed of mobile Internet.

Well, what can I say, Motorola Edge is a smartphone of 2020 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Above average smartphones from $400 to $500”.

Screen, body and battery

It is worth paying attention to good 6.7-inch capacitive OLED touchscreen smartphone Motorola Edge with display refresh rate 90 Hz. A real shoveler, which is great for watching videos, surfing the Internet and full-screen games. You will be very surprised at how much information is placed on one screen. But, unfortunately, with one hand you will not be comfortable with using a smartphone. In addition, Motorola Edge has very small frames around the screen (speaking in numbers, the screen occupies more than 90% of the area of the entire front panel. And an almost invisible hole in the screen adds recognition to the smartphone and increases the screen area, but does not increase the physical size. The thickness of the case is 9.3 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 4 500 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Motorola Edge. The main camera got several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 64 MP Wide + 8 MP Telephoto + 16 MP UltraWide + TOF 3D camera. Why, for example, has multiple lenses in a smartphone camera become the absolute norm on the market today? Because with these smartphones you can take beautiful portraits with blurred backgrounds (this is called the Bokeh effect). And manufacturers have also learned to make software enhancements to photography based on the analysis of frames from each lens. It seems that this is exactly the case when it is better to see once than read about it a hundred times. Therefore, we advise you to take a few shots yourself with the camera of this smartphone.

The front camera has one module: 25 MP Wide. This is a very good selfie-camera, which will shoot high-quality photos, so you share them with your friends in social networks and not only. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Motorola Edge is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 765G . As for RAM, the memory module is used here 4 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 6 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. You are only available 128 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Motorola Edge: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then Motorola Edge is just what you need. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is just the real phablet! You can buy! If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is exactly what you were looking for. Do not pass by Motorola Edge, you should like it.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Motorola Edge will begin in May 2020 at a price of $495. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Above average smartphones from $400 to $500”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
