At $600, the Moto Edge is a good option if you don’t mind sacrificing on camera quality and can live without wireless charging. It’s $150 more than a device like the Pixel 5a, but you’re getting a phone with a better display, faster processor and bigger battery. Even at $700, it still represents good value with specs comparable to devices like the OnePlus 9. It’s not without its flaws, but it’s still one of the best mid-range phones on the market.
Hands on: That’ll bring the Edge down to $499.99, at which point cross-shopping it against new devices like the Pixel 5a starts to get very interesting indeed. Google’s latest phone doesn’t have as many cameras in sheer number, though the search giant’s talents with computational photography are undeniable; if design is important to you, though, Motorola’s handset is leagues ahead on aesthetics.
