The Motorola Edge has strong upsides and annoying downsides. The size, performance, and screen are excellent, plus long battery life is a serious advantage, the camera is decent, and the price is reasonable given the phone has 5G for the future. These advantages pay dividends on a daily basis, makin...

The Motorola Edge is a good, solid phone with an enormous screen. It does most things well, without excelling in any one category. If you’re after a dependable all-round phone for less than $600, you’ll likely be happy with the Edge. However, it has some unusual design quirks, and faces some serious...

Though it looks the same as the premium Edge Plus, the Motorola Edge lacks the power of its bigger sibling - and many similarly-priced rivals too.

The Motorola Edge is a great phone, especially at the price. It feels like a true flagship and doesn’t really sacrifice much to reach the lower price. It’s fast, has a good camera, 5G and it’s one of the best looking phones around.

On the Edge of success

from TechRadar

The Motorola Edge feels like a mid-range phone imitating a premium one, and it shows, with a few rough edges like a fingerprint sensor which isn’t the easiest to use, and cameras that take pictures which aren’t the best we’ve seen. However this is still far from your average mid-range phone, and it feels good in the hand and looks great.

The Motorola Edge has strong upsides and annoying downsides. The size, performance, and screen are excellent, plus long battery life is a serious advantage, the camera is decent, and the price is reasonable given the phone has 5G for the future. These advantages pay dividends on a daily basis, making it very easy to live with. Elsewhere it isn’t as good as it should be due to the software and security frustrations, but some aspects could be improved with software updates in the future.

A good, but not great, phone

The Motorola Edge is a good, solid phone with an enormous screen. It does most things well, without excelling in any one category. If you’re after a dependable all-round phone for less than $600, you’ll likely be happy with the Edge. However, it has some unusual design quirks, and faces some seriously stiff competition.

Though it looks the same as the premium Edge Plus, the Motorola Edge lacks the power of its bigger sibling - and many similarly-priced rivals too. But what you won't get at such a cheap price is the stunning 6.7in OLED Endless Edge display. There's also a good, but not great, suite of cameras available and a decent 4500mAh battery that'll boast a full day of charge. It won't beat the competition in terms of performance, but it certainly looks better!

With its first 5G smartphone, Motorola edges away from its budget roots

from Expert Reviews

Motorola’s return to the flagship territory is closer in scale to a muffled whimper than a triumphant roar. For a brand that continues to dominate the low-end to such a remarkable degree, I had high hopes for a new Moto flagship, but the end result is a moderately unsatisfying one.

On the edge of excellence

If you want an eye-catching phone with a curved screen like few others, at a reasonable price point, and which lasts for an epic amount of time, then the Motorola Edge will more than give the competition a run for their money.

Back under the spotlight

The Motorola Edge targets users who primarily want a smartphone that delivers good performance and long-lasting battery life. The fact that the camera is only average is something you can live with and hope that Motorola will look into improving its quality over time with subsequent software updates.

5G without bezels

An expensive Motorola smartphone was long overdue, and the team did a fantastic job and proved they are still up to the task. The Motorola Edge is by no means flawless, but if you feel inspired and excited by its design the Edge is a chic 5G smartphone.

Determined to put a lid on the ever-increasing 5G phone prices, Motorola opted for the next best alternative to Snapdragon 865 with its new Edge phone, and equipped it with the more cost-efficient Snapdragon 765 instead, Qualcomm's first integrated 5G chipset. It also added a huge battery, 64MP camera, and... a headphone jack, for one of the most complete $700 packages you can find on a 5G-capable phone.
