Motorola’s Moto Edge+ review

Motorola's Moto Edge+ review

The new Moto Edge+ comes with a 6.7-inch display, complete with a 144Hz refresh rate, it will have all of your apps, videos, and games looking fresh as hell. A brand new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip gives it the same engine under the hood as the Samsung Galaxy S22. And finally, it has a triple-lens rear camera setup that can undoubtedly produce some snazzy shots for your social feeds.

It’s a tenth of an inch bigger than the Galaxy S22+ (which starts at the same price) with a slightly better refresh rate, given that Samsung’s model runs at 120Hz. That difference isn’t going to be meaningful for most people but Edge+ owners can take some pride in knowing they have it just a little bit smoother than their Samsung brethren. The screen size and refresh rate are almost identical (the Edge 5G was 6.8 inches at 144Hz), but the newer flagship variant comes with an OLED display and that cutting-edge Snapdragon 8 processor.

When a phone’s price creeps into quadruple-digit territory, it better have the specs to back that up. I can’t really argue that the new Moto Edge+ doesn’t. Here’s what you can expect to work with if you pick one of these up:
