Last week’s polls showed Motorola was on the right track – Edge 30 trio received a warm welcome, people Show a preference for the flagship Ultra and a fondness for the Fusion. Really only the mid-range Neo is in the red (and even then the upvotes and downvotes are almost equal).
We’ll start with the Motorola Edge 30 extremists. If you missed them, check out our written and video reviews. One important thing to note is that Motorola has addressed one of the biggest criticisms of its phones — software support. Motorola told us the Ultra will get three major OS updates (should bring it to Android 15) and four years of security patches . Will arrive monthly. Sony, did you see that?
The Edge 30 Ultra is a great all-rounder with an improved Snapdragon 8 + Gen 1 and very High refresh rate display, plus powerful125W fast charging. 30 The MP camera performed well on the first outing, but the other two modules left something to be desired. A 4K video, but it doesn’t hurt to zoom in a little on a telephoto lens. Still, given the phone’s price, it’s still a strong contender, especially for those looking for plain Android or a desktop model.
Motorola Edge 15 Fusion we also reviewed (including video Censorship) also impressed voters. It doesn’t have the wow factor of a 200 MP camera, but the faux leather design and dual-tone camera give it an elegant look.
Unfortunately, Ultra’s extended software support is not available for Fusion. You only have 2 OS updates and 3 years of security patches to look forward to. The phone also runs on last year’s Snapdragon 888+ chipset, but has a high-quality 144Hz display , you can still enter some games. Plus, it supports Motorola’s Ready For desktop mode, which is different from the Galaxy A-series phones.
Motorola Edge 15 Neo is the most affordable of the three, But not necessarily the best value for money. It’s intended for its relatively petite size (it’s the same size as the Pixel 6a, but with a smaller screen) and fast 125 W charging, plus a Motorola clean Android implementation. Some customization and gesture features are available in the Motorola app, but you don’t have to use them if you don’t want to.
Once the go-to brand for Android fans, Motorola took a back seat a few years ago. Phones like the Edge 15 series are just what it needs to bring it back into the spotlight.
