Motorola Edge review: Lasts so long on a charge you'll get tired of holding it

Motorola took a few years off from making flagship phones, but 2020 was supposed to be its big chance to get back into the high-end. Well, it's a lot harder to sell a $1,000 phone in the midst of a global pandemic, but maybe a somewhat cheaper phone has a shot? The new Motorola Edge is the pared-down version of the Edge+ that launched a few months ago. Unlike that phone, this one is unlocked and has a Snapdragon 765 for 5G connectivity rather than the 865.

Pick up the Moto G7 Power for just $160 from Amazon ($20 off)

Motorola makes some of the best budget smartphones in the US. Its Moto G7 Power isn't just affordable, but packing a 5,000mAh battery, it should last a loooong time. It's been selling at $179.99 on Amazon for the past few months, but now you can get your hands on the G7 Power for $159.99, a discount of $20.

Motorola releases Android 10 kernel source for the Edge, One Fusion+, and G7 Power

Customizability has always been a key component of Android, with third-party developers being able to modify and create their own tweaked builds of the software. When companies release the kernel source for their devices, it makes this process much easier. Motorola may not have the best reputation when it comes to software updates, but it's usually pretty good about releasing this low-level code, and it's doing so now with the Motorola One Fusion+, Motorola Edge, and Moto G7 Power Android 10 kernel sources.

Motorola Edge, unlocked for all US carriers, goes on pre-order starting at $500

In April, Motorola brought out the Edge+, a Verizon-exclusive $1,000 phone that broke away from the Moto Z monotony with invigorated industrial design and integrated 5G connectivity. What we kinda glossed over — with fair reason given what little detail we had then — is the fact that the company also launched a mid-range 5G phone with similar looks called the Edge in Europe. Well, that device has made its way stateside, unlocked, and with a couple key spec boosts to boot.

Grab the new Moto 360 for $200 ($100 off), its lowest price yet

The new Moto 360 smartwatch (which isn't made by Motorola) with Google's Wear OS was nearly impossible to recommend when it was first released, mostly because it was priced at $350. That was an absurd cost, especially when Fossil's Gen 5 watches are around $250, but now the 360 has dropped to a much more reasonable $199.99 at multiple retailers.

Moto G 5G Plus is official: Snapdragon 765, quad-cameras, and a 90Hz screen

Following last week's leaks, the Moto G 5G Plus is now official. Packing a Snapdragon 765, 6.7" "Full HD+" 90Hz display, big 5,000mAh battery, and (as its name suggests) 5G connectivity, perhaps the only drawback is the fact that it isn't coming to the US as part of this annoucement. The Moto G 5G Plus will be available in Europe and the UK on July 8th and 10th, starting at €349/£289, respectively. It's also coming to other markets including Saudi Arabia and the UAE soon.

Specs leak of Moto G 5G, potentially Verizon-exclusive Moto G 5G Plus

5G phones don't need to cost over a thousand dollars. The Motorola Edge, for example, will cost $700 once it arrives in the U.S. But there's word that the company wants to push the barrier further down with not one, but two upcoming Moto G entries.

Moto E 2020 review: Cheap and good (enough)

It's counter-intuitive, but "budget" phones are harder to compare than flagships: Not only do you have all the models that launched at a specific price to look at, but there's the used market to consider, as well as older devices. You really need to know what your requirements are. But if you're on a strict budget and you need something new — not just new to you — then Motorola's latest E deserves your attention.

Galaxy S20 family formally joins list of devices supporting AR objects in Google Search

On many Android devices, Google Search lets you view tons of 3D models like animals, pets, skeletons, cells, Neil Armstrong's spacesuit, and much more. With the tap of a button, you can move these objects into your home and see them as though they were in your camera's viewfinder. It's even possible to snap photos and take videos. The list of supported phones is ever-expanding — devices like the Sony Xperia 1 II, the Poco X2, the Xiaomi Redmi K30, and Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 Lite made the cut we when checked in at the beginning of June, and now a few more are popping up, including the flagship Galaxy S20 series.

Motorola’s entry-level G7 Play starts receiving Android 10 update

In the last six months or so, Motorola has gradually shipped Android 10 to its 2019 mid-range G7 series. The update reached the highest-end G7 Plus in January, and the standard G7 and G7 Power followed suit more recently. The only model remaining was the cheapest G7 Play, which is now also getting the update, starting in Brazil.
