2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 16+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Slick, modern design - the Motorola Edge Plus has the look and feel of a flagship phone with its curved glass sandwich design
  • The front looks stunning - the display wraps around the sides at almost 90-degree leaving no bezels along the sides at all
  • The in-display fingerprint sensor, is fast and reasonably accurate
  • A bit thick at 9.6mm, which is noticeably more than other handsets at this price
  • The volume button and power key, are razor-thin and feel cheap
  • The phone isn’t officially rated for water and dust resistance

Display

  • Sharp, vibrant and large 6.7-inch OLED Full HD+ display - the display’s notable feature is its curved ‘waterfall’ sides which makes it look seamless
  • The 90 Hz higher refresh rate makes scrolling through apps or browsing online articles a smooth experience (though, other flagships offer 120 Hz display, like the S20 Plus)
  • The curved sides can be assigned gesture shortcuts using the "Edge touch" feature and you can trigger different apps and functions from the sides - the sides can also be used as trigger button in some games (though, the gestures are difficult to remember)

Software

  • Motorola’s software has led the pack for quite some time - the software is clean and very close to stock Android, with only the lightest enhancements to improve the experience of using the phone day and in day out
  • Motorola has committed to at least two major OS upgrades for the phone, in addition to security patches for two years

Performance

  • Top-end flagship performance with the Snapdragon 865 chipset - Motorola Edge Plus has all the performance you’ll ever need - it powers through the most intensive apps and games with ease and the phone always feels fast and light on its feet

Camera

  • Good, versatile quad-rear camera setup - a 108MP primary sensor, 16MP ultra-wide, 8MP telephoto and a 3D TOF camera for depth sensing
  • Image quality out of the Moto's main cam in daylight is excellent - a ton of detail in the 27MP shots and the dynamic range is well worthy of the Edge+'s flagship stature
  • The ultra-wide camera is a very capable performer - it offers a wider field of view and the images show excellent contrast and dynamic range and likeable lively colours - the ultra-wide-angle camera of the Edge+ has autofocus and that lets it do some nice closeups too
  • The portrait mode is impressive and show excellent subject detection and good blur quality
  • Selfies are quite nice coming out of the Edge Plus, with excellent dynamic range and spot-on colours, and the focus distance is just right for arm's length shots - portrait mode for selfies also work well
  • Video recording from the Edge Plus is also good - you can shoot up to 6K video
  • The telephoto camera lets you zoom up to 10X but the resulting images are just average (though the zoomed images in manual mode are quite nice and this seems like a software issue which might be fixed in future)
  • The low-light photography from the Motorola Edge Plus is average - the night mode slightly helps in improving the image quality, but it's not sufficient
  • Overall, Motorola Edge Plus offers capable cameras, but they don't stand very tall among the competition, the underdogs like OnePlus have upped their game and the iPhone and Pixels are still the kings of the hill

Battery

  • Stellar battery life with the 5000 mAh battery - it tops the competition with the largest battery a phone has to offer at this price - it will easily last you for 2 days of moderate use
  • There's 15W wireless charging and 5W of reverse wireless charging that you could use to charge other devices
  • The phone only supports 18W fast charging and that's low for this price - it takes nearly 2 hours for the phone to completely charge

Audio

  • Very good set of stereo speakers
  • Also included is a 3.5mm jack, which is a rare sight at this price

Verdict

  • The Motorola Edge Plus directly competes with the Galaxy S20 Plus in price and objectively, the Galaxy S20 Plus is a better phone with it's a better display, faster charging and very good cameras, and things like IP certification just make the S20 Plus more compelling
  • If you're looking for more bang for the buck, the new Mi 10 5G offers the same 108MP camera and some other exciting features, and then there're the OnePlus brothers that are always the safe bet for anyone
