Motorola Edge Plus Unboxing and Full Handson Review | Price | Specifications

Earlier this year Motorola came out with their latest flagship the Edge Plus which did launch only on Verizon which was kind of a bummer however Motorola is releasing the Edge which is a fully unlocked device and if you pre-order it, you can get it for $500.

Now the Edge and the Edge plus are not the same devices there are some Similarities.

Whats in the Box?

So I unboxed the Edge for you guys to take a look at what comes inside and also of course look at the phone as well and see what you can get at that $500 price point.
Let's get started,
  • Opening the Edge from Motorola looks like we have a box towards the top, inside that box was a clear protective case nice to see it's always great when companies include extras in the box that they don't have to.
  • You have the standard booklets and SIM ejection tool.
  • Also worth noting it does have a micro SD card slot and then finally in the box you've got your USB type C cable for charging.
  • An 18 watt turbo power charger from Motorola.
Look and Feel

Moving along and checking out the Edge and right away i liked the color which almost has a blue tint to it obviously reflects differently and has a gradient depending on how the color hits it even almost a rainbow style to it really cool nice work Motorola and if you are wondering what colour iam talking about then it is called ‘solar black’ really neat.

All right down at the bottom you have one of your Speakers, USB type C slot, microphone and it also has a 3.5 millimetre headphone jack. Nice of Motorola to include that.
On the left side of the phone there is absolutely nothing.
Towards the top, microphone, SIM card slot and a micro SD card slot for expandable storage.
Then on the right side you have two volume rockers and a power button that does have some texture to it so you can differentiate between the volume button and the power button


Looking at the side there is a very small camera bump that is barely there with the camera system now the main sensor is a 64 megapixel lens then you have an ultra wide angle.
16 megapixel lens which will also take macro shots so close-up shots for you
you have a telephoto lens for two times zoom and then you do have a time-of-flight sensor and just because it looks so cool at the full back, you can really see that solar black coloring.

Jumping into the camera, it have a ton of different modes including night vision, like i said macro spot color is a lot of fun.
It has an optical zoom and then we can also go into the ultra wide angle lens so obviously it's going to include a lot more into the shot but not only that if you wanted to get really close to something and it still stays focused because you can take macro shots with the ultra wide angle lens


The Edge does have an in display fingerprint scanner and it just lets you know if you use a screen protector make sure that you do have one that is compatible with the phone.

This is a 5g capable phone it does have the snapdragon 765 processor from Qualcomm in it which is of course does have that 5g modem on the inside and again will work on all major carriers within and i will link to this device down below if you are interested in it.

It also do have face unlock if you'd like to use that instead.
The Edge has a 4500 milliamp hour battery and Motorola says you can get up to two days worth of battery so definitely gonna have to test that out.

This phone does not have an official IP rating however Motorola does say it has a water repellent design but no actual IP rating and again on top of that expandable storage it comes with 256 gigabytes of internal storage crazy! the base amount with 6 gigabytes of RAM so you're going to have more than enough storage and this is on the latest android 10.


You can tell it lives up to its name with the Edge display with those curved sides just kind of spilling off the side of the phone.
There is a 6.7 inch 1080p display if you were wondering and actually taking a look at the phone it looks like it does have 90 hertz activated out of the box which is great to see that it has above 60 hertz this is an OLED display and if we wanted to jump into settings and go into display settings you could probably find that 90 hertz you'll see it does have a dark theme currently the display refresh rate is set to auto so you can customize it for auto for optimal refresh rate or you can uh set it to 90 hertz or 60 hertz which will save some battery life.

The Edges aren't just for aesthetics Motorola has added functionality with Edge touch so you can double tap or swipe on an action bar for quick shortcuts so if we try it out double tap on the action bar right there, swipe in for shortcuts, swipe down to see notifications from there, swipe down again to open up quick settings, swipe up to see recent apps or swipe up again for the app tray

So there's a lot of different functionality.
 If we are in the dialer and double tap on that screen you will see you can get rid of those Edges so you'll see the bezels just got a lot a little bit bigger that's just obviously with coloring of the display

So if you don't actually want that display to be on with the sides in specific apps you can customize that on a per app basis swiping out will get you some shortcuts that again you can completely customize to your liking maybe you just want a ruler real quick and actually measure something with your phone.

Motorola Edge Plus Top and Bottom View

Now according to some tech websites and forums, they have found an display issue in the Motorola Edge Plus display panel, which I tried to find if there was any but I didn’t find anything with the Unit I had received, I have put the Display Problem Image below for you guys to check and again if you have heard about it or if you know more, please do comment down below.

Looking towards the top is that second speaker that earpiece.
Which couples for a stereo speaker experience with that bottom speaker.
Apparently Motorola has done a great job at sound quality and how loud these get.
I was excited to try it out.


Now one thing that Motorola does really well is they keep a very Similar to stock Android experience with a lot of nice additional features one of them being chopped twice for a flashlight you can chop twice again to turn it off you can also twist to get quick capture so if i twist my phone it will quickly open up that camera app if i twist again it will go ahead and switch that 25 megapixel front-facing camera there are some other gestures you can customize like three finger screenshot.

And Again Edge touch is customizable so with double tap maybe you want it to switch to the last app swiping in can be shortcut swiping up and down position the theme uh the opacity of the actual icon here so if we go ahead and double tap on it now you'll see it is swapping back and forth between different apps as opposed to it getting rid of the Edge display which is very quick and easy.


Finally, I wanted to just go ahead and put the case on the phone.
Its very open on the side where the buttons are and even on the left side for that Edge display just has a nice cut out there but the cut outs look great on the camera on the flash and the microphones and of course the ports down at the bottom so everything is exposed still i can go ahead and reach all of my keys nothing is actually covered but again nice that they include a case and it's clear so you really don't necessarily lose that coloring on the back very random but if you were wondering you can stand the phone up on its own.

I wouldn't recommend it though so overall that's everything i wanted to touch on for now with the Motorola Edge drop a comment and let me know what you think, Again i will link to everything down below if you're interested in checking out this phone
