Motorola is a company that shows extreme dedication to what they’re doing. Taking a close look at Motorola’s attempts to break through the barriers of fate and blend in with other companies who have already demonstrated their latest models, we can confidently state that destiny says, “No, Motorola, not now.”

The much awaited return of the Motorola Razr was heavily criticized, and not without good reason. Motorola’s Edge Plus should have become the first flagship model of the company for years, but unfortunately, the outbreak of COVID-19 has caused the grand cancellation of tech events along with most of normal life, and MWC, where the Edge Plus was supposed to be showcased, was no exception.

Check out the Motorola Edge Plus

Motorola is trying to do its best despite the damaging conditions it’s facing along the road. Motorola’s Edge Plus is the first flagship handset from the company for many years, and the specs are pretty attractive. The new smartphone isn’t a lucrative and mercantile marketing plan to rebrand the existing Z-series phone. The Motorola Edge Plus is a reason for other companies to worry about their products because Motorola is boosting their technology out of the shackles of the market, they have repositioned themselves.

I will keep my comments about the Motorola Edge Plus brief; it’ll be available for $999 on May 14th from Verizon and then we can get a better handle on it. What exactly is it we’re waiting for? The Edge Plus is going to be the biggest Motorola, with a 6.7-inch OLED FHD+ display, the resolution of the screen – 2340 x 1080p – lags behind Samsung’s Galaxy S20+ that has 3200x1440p, but it still has enough sharpness to please us. 

The Edge Plus is designed with all the 2020 trends and canons for flagship phones. Motorola, not coincidentally, calls their new device “Edge” because the curved screen shows a wider angle of curves than the Samsung and OnePlus flagships. It’s more similar to a waterfall, with the edges almost at 90-degree angles down from both sides of the phone. 

Unfortunately, to gain such a result, engineers have made a decision to slightly move the lock and volume buttons to the bottom of the phone. It’s not noticeable at first, but you’ll feel it after a long developed habit over the years of using the standard placement. The edge is not a form of decoration, it has a working function; it glows when you’re charging the phone to show the percentage, notifications, and alarms.

The main trick of the Edge Plus’s design is the presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack. I can feel the salty tears rolling down my chick and crooning doing *You spin me right round*. A MicroSD/SIM slot is also present, albeit on the bottom of the device. A Snapdragon 865, 5G support with mmWave radios, a 90Hz (why 90?) refresh rate, 12GB RAM, 256GB of internal storage, are all features present in almost every 2020 flagship phone. What’s interesting is the 5,000mAh battery, though the company claims to leave the 15W charging because of lack of space in the body, which means the telephone will be thicker; it’s not the most delicate phone, with a 9.6mm thickness, by the way.

Another smartphone with 108MP sensor

I will do the separate section on the camera setup since Motorola is focusing all the attention on its main 108MP shooter, which can use ‘pixel binning’ tech. That means that when the size of each pixel in the sensor is expanding, it reduces megapixel count, or in easy words it sacrifices sharpness in order to catch more light. The camera can also imprint video in 6K UHD, and again why not 4K or 8K?

The Edge Plus has also got an 8MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom and 16MP ultra-wide camera which has become the standard rate for modern phones. As a result, we have a triple camera set on the back panel which overgrows in a camera bump, though at first glance it looks more accurate.

Wrapping up

Motorola’s Edge Plus is definitely a flagship telephone according to the specs they’ve written on paper. And according to the same details, it’ll be the best telephone for the company they have ever made. To buy or not to buy; that’s the question and we can’t give you an answer as yet. The handset will be released in the US on May 14, exclusively through Verizon for $41.66 per month for 24 months according to TechRadar.
