Motorola Edge Plus (2022)

The Motorola Edge Plus is a middling contender in a race that includes too many high-end drivers. It claims some modest victories with screen quality and beats many Android phones in battery life, but falls short of many well-established expectations of a modern flagship phone. This is one Edge that needs some serious sharpening.

Statement

Motorola has updated its Edge Plus flagship smartphone for 2022, hoping the upgrades will be enough to take on the likes of the Google Pixel line, the Samsung Galaxy S family, and other high-end competitors around the world. Now in its third year as Motorola’s flagship offering, the Edge builds on its high refresh rate display, light touch user interface and advanced Ready For platform as points of differentiation. Is it enough to attract potential buyers? Find out in Android Authority’s Motorola Edge Plus (2022) review.

What you need to know about Motorola Edge Plus (2022)


Motorola Edge Plus 8GB/128GB (Verizon): $849.99
Motorola Edge Plus 8GB/512GB (Unlocked): $999.99
The Motorola Edge Plus (2022) is the company’s flagship device for 2022. It’s also the second iteration of the Edge Plus series after the original 2020 model, as we didn’t see a Plus variant in 2021. While it carries over a lot of the base features of the vanilla Motorola Edge (2021 ) features some significant – and much needed – improvements that should help it stand up better against other flagships. The kicker, however, is the brand new price tag that accompanies these upgrades. Where the original Motorola Edge Plus and newer entries in the Edge line came in under $800, the 2022 model unabashedly jumps into a more premium tier with some decidedly less-than-premium components.

Motorola targeting


Motorola is clearly targeting the Pixel 6 Pro, Galaxy S22 Plus, iPhone 13 Pro and OnePlus 10 Pro, all of which are near the top of the market. Each of these devices includes a few basic features that are often expected from thousand-dollar flagships. However, the Motorola phone falls short in ways that may make it a tough sell against these category leaders – but more on that in the rest of the review.

Rather than relying on one name for its flagships, Motorola usually redesigns its phones for different markets. In North America and select other regions, its debut phone will be known as the Motorola Edge Plus. In some parts of Asia, Europe, India, Latin America and the Middle East, it is to be branded as the Motorola Edge 30 Pro.
There are a number of different configurations. The base version includes 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, although Motorola has suggested that some versions will have up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. There are also two 5G variants, one with mmWave and sub-6GHz support (North America, Verizon only) and one that only includes sub-6GHz (unlocked and global). The Motorola Edge Plus (2022) is available in two colors: Cosmos Blue and Stardust White.


In the US, the 8GB/128GB model is sold primarily by Verizon Wireless for $849.99. Motorola is also selling an unlocked 8GB/512GB version of the phone online from Amazon and Best Buy for $999.99, though it was launched with a $100 discount, bringing the effective price down to $899.99 for a limited time. It often discounts its phones, but there’s no telling how long this promotion will last. Motorola did not share a full breakdown of pricing for the remaining potential configurations.

Has Motorola improved the cameras?


It has completely redesigned the camera system on the Edge Plus. Gone is the 108MP main sensor and stunning ultra-wide shooters we found on its predecessors. In favor of a dual 50MP setup better served by today’s mobile photographers.


Value and competition


Motorola has once again made a bit of a mess of its flagship phone’s value proposition. The company sells two distinct versions of the phone, separated by a handful of specs and $150. The unlocked model ($999), on the other hand, loses mmWave. But at least in the US offers 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. For a limited time, this model is on sale for $100 less for $899. The availability of models with 12GB RAM is currently a mystery.

Competing flagships in this space typically range from $899 to $1,099 before factoring in storage options. The cheaper Verizon Edge Plus model seems like a bargain at first, but let’s not forget the less-than-premium experience it offers with a plastic frame. Outdated glass, and a low IP rating, as well as the lack of a telephoto lens and mmWave 5G support.
