If you are looking for a great Motorola mid-range phone, this is the place to be! The Motorola Edge (2021) is discounted by 36% on Amazon. This is $250 off the original price!


TL;DR


Motorola has been holding firm in the mid and lower range market in the US. That's no surprise: Motorola devices are well built, come with unique features and – most importantly – clean software. The Motorola Edge (2021) is no different!

With the current discount, the phone is even more attractive: Instead of the original $699.99, you only pay $449.99. To understand how great this price is, let's have a look at our review of the slightly different Motorola Edge 20, which scores a rock-solid 4 out of 5 stars. The Edge (2021) is basically a slightly powerful version of the Motorola Edge 20, offering a bigger battery at the expense of a slightly bulkier body.

The device comes out on top in nearly every aspect from the competition. With this deal, we are approaching the price point of the much weaker Samsung A52 5G. So, if you were considering the Samsung A72 but it felt too expensive, then the Motorola Edge (2021) will prove to be the ultimate choice.

Why choose the Motorola Edge (2021)

The maybe biggest strength of the Motorola Edge (2021) is the screen: With a refresh rate of 144Hz and HDR10 support, the super-bright LCD screen is ideal for gaming. Combine that with the pretty powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G, and you have the recipe for a gaming champion.

Note: The information above is from our review of the nearly identical Motorola Edge 20.

Another thing that is excellent for the price is the camera. At 108 MP, the primary shooter is fantastic for pretty much any scenario, and it managed to impress us also in night shots! Yet the show is stolen by the Ultra-wide camera: While it's just usable at best in most mid-rangers, the Motorola Edge (2021) truly shines here.

Last but not least, we have the Android UI from Motorola that preserves an almost authentic Google Android experience, reminding us of the good old Google One days. Oh and it will also be getting updates for at least the next two years!

      I used to have a great care for Motorola in the past, but today I don't get the company anymore. I loved the Moto Snaps/Mods by the time Moto Z series were out there. The first Moto G generations were amazing, and even the foldable Motorola Razr was a compelling option for the hardcore fans. But now I feel that the company's ecosystem is a mess, and they are struggling with the basics like Android updates.

      Motorola Edge has the Ready for option that I do like, and the super thin design, but Motorola is not my number 1, 2 or 3 anymore.

        I only do unlocked phones for pre-paid service. And my lifestyle is full of sand and hard knocks. Moto gives me good value for the abuse level that fancier glassier phones will not tolerate. If Essential still existed, I'd give them the nod.
