Motorola’s smartphone with $1,000 Edge Plus is decent but is it decent enough to go against Apple, Samsung, or OnePlus phones?
The powerful specs are the main things that are going great for this unit, particularly when it comes to the camera. Besides that, on May 14, 2020, Motorola Edge Plus goes on sale.
Competition for high-end smartphones
Now everybody knows Motorola is back and they make high-end smartphones. This specific category requires some competition, as it is dominated mainly by only two companies: Apple and Samsung. LG was the only corporation that ever attempted to survive in the United States, but, unfortunately, it has lost all of its appeals.
That’s where Motorola comes in with its $1,000 Edge Plus smartphone because the public expects it will be a successful competitor. Hopefully, the company will build and create a smartphone that will make even a little bit of Apple and Samsung shake. Is Edge Plus the secret to Motorola? Most wouldn’t believe it.
Motorola Edge Plus
According to Business Insider, “The Moto Edge Plus is a nice phone, but it lacks the final polish that is expected on high-end flagships, such as the OnePlus 8 series or the Galaxy S20 phones. It’s only really noticeable when you’re inspecting the phone, but none of the pieces (glass front panel, frame, back glass panel) look like they fit very well with each other, and the glossy metal frame looks really good. However, there are a lot of negative sides to the phone with curved edges of the screen.
The Moto Edge Plus has a 1080p resolution with a refresh rate of 90Hz which, of course, means nothing compared with Samsung and OnePlus’ 1440p and 120Hz displays. But yeah, the 1080p and 90Hz look smooth and clear even.
It also has a battery life of 5,000 mAh which is supposed to be the main attraction of the smartphone. But, depending on how long you are using the unit, you will need to keep charging it every day or two.
The report also indicated that “The Edge Plus has pretty good cameras. It does not over-saturate colors, nor does it try too hard to make your pictures look good with excessively aggressive processing and HDR (brightening darker regions and dimming bright areas) or neon-looking colors (especially greens), which are unfortunate features on Samsung’s Galaxy S20 and OnePlus 8 Pro.” Well, for this handset, the biggest setback is that it’s an exclusive Verizon only. Here’s hoping for future changes.
