We have been waiting for an interesting model for motorola for a while, but this year that weight ended with the launch of the new motorola edge s as the first snapdragon 870 phone. The brand is trying to regain its footing in the mobile industry, so let’s see how good the motorola edge s is in real life. Although it comes in a compact box, motorola has thankfully decided to still include a charger and a cable inside the box. It is worth mentioning that the edge s case did not come separately in the box; rather it was already installed on the phone. I guess this should be the secret of how it is possible to make the box so small when there is a charger included. If there is one word to describe the hands on experience, it would be rough, it weighs 215 grams and is 9.69 millimeters thick, add a 6.7 inch screen to the phone and it feels really bulky. The good thing is that the screen aspect ratio is 21 to 9 and it’s, not particularly hard to grip on the front. You’Ll find a 1080p dual hole, punch screen with a 90 hertz refresh rate. It is rare that the two holes are not combined into one oval shape. The back cover reflects purple or blue light when viewed at different angles. It looks like glass but it’s, actually plastic. There is a fingerprint sensor on the side and even a headphone jack, which was surprising, and there is an additional multi function button.
It can be customized to open customized programs with one click. Double tapping on the finger sensor can also trigger a similar function. However, some details of the edges are not so good. For example, the screen protector is smaller than the screen size resulting in the edges not being covered there’s, almost no oleophobic layer on film and back cover, so the entire phone will be covered in fingerprints. After a few hours of handling, which makes the display very shabby, the top and bottom bezels are also very wide. Yes, i agree it retails for a cheap price, but there are still plenty of phones in this price range which are more refined than this. Unfortunately, if you are someone who wants a phone that feels premium, this may not live up to your expectations. That being said, i know that users who actually get this phone will be for its processor. This year’s snapdragon 88 was so powerful, resulting in overheating issues. So can the edge s with snapdragon 870 give us a satisfactory performance on antutu benchmark. The phone stream scored a respectable 640 000, while in the 3d market got around 4 900. compared to the mi 11 snapdragon 888. The gap is still very obvious, but benchmark tests. Only show their peak performance and gaming is the only real way to check the true level of sustained performance output for a smartphone, so let’s play some games on the device. Pubg naturally goes without saying, ran at almost 60 fps.
Genji impact was better optimized for the snapdragon 888 chip. After a recent update, we compare this to the retested me11. The edges had an average frame rate of only 47 fps, whereas the mi 11 can reach 53 fps the edge s averaged around 48 fps in brightridge, while the mi 11 averaged 52 fps. So there is a visible difference in performance in terms of numbers, but in terms of real world experience, the snapdragon 870 still has the edge. The snapdragon 888 frame rate plummeted when it overheated, which could be noticeably felt, but the snapdragon 870 is largely immune to the phenomenon and the edges tops out at around 50 degrees celsius. However, the mi 11 can still reach up to 55 degrees celsius, it’s already hard to hold the phone when you are gaming, so if the edge s is used as a phone dictated to gaming, i think it’s still not good. Now we put the focus on the camera system of the motorola edge s, let’s start with the edge s camera setup, the rear. Four cameras consist of a 64 megapixel main camera, a 16 megapixel ultra wide angle, lens a 2 megapixel portrait, depth of field lens and a tof lens. The daytime performance of the main camera is relatively good with natural colors. Apart from the highlights and purple fringing issue, which were not so well controlled, the camera quality was quite satisfactory for phone at this price point. The nighttime performance is not as good as the daytime highlights.
Overflow details in dark are lost and noise is noticeable. Turning on night mode only improves the exposure imbalance, but the other shortcomings remain the same at night. It’S. Fine for recording, but note that you can’t expect much from its video performance in low light. We also tested the ultra resolution mode, this mode, outputs, 64 megapixel photos, but the difference in sharpness compared to the straight out 16 megapixel photos is hardly noticeable. The ultrawide camera performs similarly when compared to the main camera. Although the purple fringing issue is much worse in the daytime in low light, the performance of the ultrawide camera is worse than the main camera, and there is no night mode for the ultra white camera, so it’s best to stick to brighter places. If you want to take pictures for an ultra wide camera, the ultra right camera can also take macro photos. The photos are good, but because there is no ois, you need to keep your hand very steady. When you shoot the back cover is made of plastic, so you might be wondering why the phone is still so heavy. The reason is that it comes with a huge five thousand milliampere hour battery, but battery life is not just about battery capacity it’s, also about optimizations. One hour of 1080p internet video consumes 14 one hour of web. Browsing consumes 11 and half an hour of genji impact consumes 12 percent at 20. Minutes of bright ridge consumes 13 a day without charging should not be a problem.
However, the maximum charging power is limited to 20 watts. You only get 37 percent charge in half an hour and 68. In one hour, a full charge takes close to two hours, which is a long time waiting. If you forget to charge it before going to bed. It’S still a pain to get the edges completely charged. So after looking at all the configurations, do you think the motorola edge s is worth buying? Well, it’s not great in a lot of areas, but with the snapdragon 870 and 5000 milliampere hour battery and a very cost effective price. It makes for an excellent gaming smartphone if you’re on a budget and want a gaming phone, you should definitely consider it so that’s.
