There's a lot to like about the new MotorolaEdgePlus. Not only is it the first truly premium phone that Motorola has launched in the US since 2020, but the 2022 version of the EdgePlus packs a big battery, a high-refresh-rate display and multiple rear cameras and is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. If those specs sound similar it's because phones from Samsung and OnePlus have nearly identical ones.
What makes the EdgePlus stand out are the excellent ways Motorola's software additions complement a near-untouched version of Android 12. Add in some of the best cameras found on any Motorola phone ever and the EdgePlus seems like a must-buy. But the $1,000 price is where things get complicated.
