YUKI93, 19 May 2020If Motorola utilizing OmniVision camera sensor for the ultrawide and telephoto camera, why can... moreLOL.
No one makes better and most advanced sensors than Sony.
All cameras brands buy sensors from Sony (except the Canon APSC and Full Frame models).
Samsung and Omnivision copy Sony's tech but still do not deliver the same.
Without Sony, there would not exist tech like stacked dram sensor, quadbayer and 2x2 on-chip lens.

If Motorola utilizing OmniVision camera sensor for the ultrawide and telephoto camera, why can't they do the same with the main sensor? The OV48C is by far the best camera sensor to come out in 2020, and yet I'm not seeing any smartphone brands using that sensor.
Despite claims about Motorola phones no signal problem I decided to go ahead and buy two it was working fine for a few weeks until the signal was lost. It couldn't be repaired or sold and my money was wasted
"Pro: The fastest midrange chipset"
You have posted the news yourself, that MTK Dimensity 820 has beaten sd765g by 100k in antutu.
Then, there is also Kirin 820 5G, that is almost as much ahead of sd765g.
Nice phone, but the OnePlus 8 looks like a bargain in comparison once you factor in software updates.

While some of the picture gets "eaten" by the edges, quite obvious in the camera viewfinder, I was nicely surprised by the touch experience.
Poco F2 Pro, flagship processor for $500, this has a midrange processor for $600, does the motorola brand still has enough hype going for it to price like this?
I missed reading about how its software deals with accidental edge touches, even though I read through the article. Was it mentioned?
Youtubers claims are conflicting, some said they're dealt with, others they're still an issue. Would be ideal if GSMArena reports on their experience.
[deleted post]The speakers sound quality is good so I am fine with GSMArena listing it as pros. But in terms of loudness it's significantly lower than Moto G8 Power which costs less than half of Moto Edge so yes that should have been mentioned in the cons.
Otherwise anyone who only looks at the final verdict will get the impression of Moto Edge having a excellent speakers. Which is only half true.
It appears to be a solid phone. I would pick Moto any day against the likes of oppo, MI and Vivo
I would like to add that Poco F2 Pro is also a worthy contender; depends on the compromises you can live with.
Bring back the testing of the 3.5mm headphone jack volume. You don't need to test the freq response since they are all almost excellent, but no way of knowing what the volume is without you testing it. Do a survey and ask if you want to 3.5mm testing brought back for just volume level.
[deleted post]Maybe because they were not as loud as motorola claimed they were? remember "Loudest speakers on phone" That does not mean that they were bad, just that they were not excellent
Congrats Motorola! Good work! Can't wait to see how the Edge+ does (despite it lacking a microSD slot which is ridiculous that the cheaper phone has it...).
Siba7411, 18 May 2020Great to see Motorola bring back it's 'A' game. That phone looks gorgeous, though we have seen... moreThe widevine situation will just allow 720p and 1080p playback.
Screen is not HDR, you cannot fix this. Hardware thing.
You will still only watch in SDR.
1) According to the graphic provided by audio test, this one has better result compared to Edge+ ( more of the line near 0 means better).
2) Daylight photos are shockingly awful. Whole city looks like wax (feature very welcome at dxomark labs according to score they give to few brands)
3) Cannot say about night photos, almost all of them are more than iso10.000 (of course they will look trash this way), it was not supposed to raise iso that high. I suppose outcome would be much better at lower values (800-1200, like most would use for same scene)
