The Motorola Edge Plus
is the first top-tier flagship Motorola has released in years, and in many ways, it was worth the wait: the waterfall display is big and gorgeous, the phone packs great specs, and there’s even a new gaming feature thrown in: digital trigger buttons that hang over the screen’s edge, just under your fingers.
The phone packs an impressive specs array: a Snapdragon 865 chipset, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage (sadly not expandable). The 6.7-inch display has a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support, giving a far sharper image than we’d expect from its Full HD Plus (2340 x 1080) screen. And its triple rear camera is headed by a staggering 108MP shooter.
While the Motorola Edge Plus’ price is about equal to other flagships at $999 (around £800 / AU$1,550), you might have trouble finding it given its limited availability: even in the US, it’s only available through Verizon.
The phone’s cheaper sibling, the Motorola Edge, has a few compromises in specs and but it’s notably cheaper as a result, starting at £549 / $699 (about AU$1,015). And yet, it may be available in more places, and still retains many of the best features of the Edge Plus.
While the Motorola Edge ‘only’ has a display supporting HDR10, a Snapdragon 765G chipset with 6GB of RAM, a 64MP main shooter, and a smaller 4,500mAh battery, those aren’t dealbreakers for the lower price, in our opinion. Plus, the Edge’s 128GB of storage is expandable via microSD.
And best of all, both versions come with 3.5mm headphone jacks.
