The price of the Edge 20 series has been revealed: What about the competition?
Edge 20 Fusion
With the Edge 20 series, Motorola now has a strong presence in the Rs 30,000 sub-category. The Edge 20 Fusion works with the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite, OnePlus Nord CE, Xiaomi Mi 10i and Realme X7 5G. The Mi 11 Lite is the only 4G phone where others provide 5G connectivity. The Dimensity 800U chip compares with the Snapdragon 750G in terms of raw performance.
The phone is based on the global Edge 20 Lite but India gets an upgraded MediaTek Dimension 800U chipset instead of the weak Dimension 720 chip. The Android 11 based phone runs on MyUX.
The rest of the features are identical. The Edge 20 Fusion has a 6.7-inch Full HD + AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90Hz, a 5000mAh battery and a 30W fast wired charging solution. The front camera has a 32-megapixel sensor and the rear triple camera setup has a 108-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide / macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth camera.
Those interested in buying the Mi 10i 5G should definitely check out the Edge 20 Fusion, due to its competitive features and stock Android experience with Motorola. For those who are getting Nord CE, the Edge 20 Fusion presents with improved camera and improved 5G connectivity.
The Edge 20 directly compares to the OnePlus Nord 2, Realme X7 Max, Xiaomi Mi 11X, Oppo Reno 6 5G and Vivo V21 5G. The dimension of the Snapdragon 8G Nord 2 may lose up to 1200 chips in terms of raw performance, but Motorola offers a high-feature rich experience.
The more premium Edge 20 offers a high-end set of features. You will get a 6.7-inch Full HD + LED display with a refresh rate of 144Hz and a touch response rate of 576Hz. Inside the show running with Android 11 based Motorola MyUX is a Snapdragon 778G chip. The 4000mAh battery saves the phone and the Motorola 30W fast charger is in the box.
The front camera gets the same 32-megapixel sensor as the Fusion but the rear camera gets a different setup. The 108-megapixel main camera comes with a 16-megapixel ultraviolet / macro camera and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom.
While the Edge 20 may not be as powerful as the Nord 2, Realm X7 Max and MI11X, the shutterbugs will get a more versatile camera setup and the 144Hz display is another superior feature. Compared to the Renault 6 5G and Vivo V21, the Edge 20 has faster, better overall specs and a cleaner user interface.
