Motorola Edge (2021) Heads to Verizon With Cheaper Price
Motorola announced a fresh Edge phone back August and I’ve no idea if anyone got it. At the time, it had been priced pretty well, right down to $500. However, the purchase price increased to $700 soon after and then faded out from our memories. It’s returning today because Verizon is currently carrying it, only Verizon has slotted it within their phone line-up with a good $550 price tag. Time and energy to reconsider the Motorola Edge (2021)?
This new Motorola Edge phone features includes a 6.8″ FHD LCD display with 144Hz refresh rate, Snapdragon 778G processor, 5000mAh battery with 30W fast charging, IP52 water resistance, WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, bottom-firing speaker, and a triple rear camera. The unlocked model is filled with 256GB of storage and 8GB RAM, but Verizon is apparently selling a version with 128GB, hence the purchase price drop. They haven’t specified if we’ve 6GB or 8GB RAM here.
This may be a decent phone if you’re on a budget and require a handful of specs which are typically reserved for more costly devices, just like the 144Hz refresh rate in the display and WiFi 6E. Having said that, Motorola isn’t the very best at software updates and Google is approximately release a the Pixel 6 at what’s rumored to be a couple of hundred dollars more.
Verizon is selling the brand new Motorola Edge on October 14 for $550 at full retail or $18.33 monthly for 30 months. You must never purchase a phone on a 30 month contract when you can help it.
