Review – Moto Edge 50 Pro

Moto Edge 50 Pro

The Moto Edge 50 Pro emerges as a true standout, boasting a level of visual excellence that’s bound to turn heads and elevate your everyday viewing experience to new heights. Let’s see what it holds within.

Design

Moto Edge 50 Pro is a smartphone that has been designed to perfection. Right from the moment you lay eyes on the Moto Edge 50 Pro, it’s evident that every detail has been meticulously crafted to grab the attention. The harmonious blend of silicone vegan leather finish and metal frames exudes a sense of sophistication and refinement. Available in two captivating colours – Luxe Lavender and Black Beauty, the vegan leather not only adds a touch of luxury but also underscores Moto’s commitment to sustainability. And for those with a penchant for opulence, the world’s first handmade design in Moonlight Pearl Finish offers a level of exclusivity that is simply unmatched. The device we received for review was of a blue colour with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage.

Eco-Friendly Packaging

The Moto Edge 50 Pro arrives in eco-friendly packaging, a testament to Moto’s commitment to sustainability. As you peel back the layers, you’ll be greeted by materials that are not only gentle on the environment but also elegant in their simplicity. To make your smartphone experience sensorial, Moto has come up with the concept of ‘fragrance in an box’. As you lift the lid, a subtle yet tantalising scent wafts through the air, enveloping you in a unique sensorial experience. It’s a small touch, but one that elevates the unboxing process to new heights, leaving a lasting impression long after the initial excitement fades.

Display

 

At the heart of the Moto Edge 50 Pro lies the world’s first and only true colour display, validated by none other than Pantone, the global authority on colour. The core display specifications of the Moto Edge 50 Pro are nothing short of impressive, setting a new standard for what’s possible in mobile visual technology. With a generous 6.7-inch pOLED display, users are treated to a canvas that’s both expansive and immersive, perfect for indulging in your favourite content with the utmost clarity and detail. With support for a staggering 1.5K resolution, every image and video comes to life with breathtaking sharpness and clarity, pulling you into the heart of the action with unrivalled fidelity.

Thanks to its impressive 144Hz refresh rate, scrolling through your feed or engaging in fast-paced gaming feels smoother and more fluid than ever before, delivering a level of responsiveness that’s second to none. Combined with its 3D curved display, which not only enhances aesthetics but also adds to the overall immersion, the Moto Edge 50 Pro offers a visual experience that’s truly beyond compare. With HDR10+ support, colours are rendered with stunning vibrancy and contrast, elevating your viewing experience to cinematic levels of immersion.

Camera

The Moto Edge 50 Pro sports the world’s first AI-powered pro-grade camera system validated by Pantone, and let me tell you, it’s nothing short of extraordinary. The camera is not just about capturing moments; it’s about elevating them to art. With the AI Photo Enhancement Engine, even novice photographers can effortlessly achieve professional-quality images. From boosting dynamic range to refining software-based bokeh and reducing noise in low-light environments, every shot is a masterpiece waiting to happen.

At its core lies the segment’s widest aperture primary 50MP 2um camera with OIS, capturing stunning detail and clarity in every shot. Accompanying this powerhouse are the 13MP ultrawide+macro secondary camera, the 10MP telephoto camera with 3X optical zoom and 30X hybrid zoom, and the segment’s highest 50MP selfie camera with autofocus and an improved aperture of f/1.9. And let’s not forget its ability to record 4K videos on both the front and back cameras, ensuring your memories are preserved in stunning clarity.

Performance

The Moto Edge 50 Pro sports the formidable Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chipset, a 4nm marvel that pushes the boundaries of performance to new heights. Thanks to its Generative AI features support, the smartphone offers a smoother gaming experience, support for higher resolution videos, and lightning-fast GPU/CPU speeds. And with faster 5G connectivity and greater power efficiency, the Moto Edge 50 Pro ensures that you’re always ahead of the curve, no matter where life takes you.

With a generous 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, this device is a multitasking powerhouse, effortlessly juggling multiple apps and tasks without breaking a sweat. Navigating the Moto Edge 50 Pro’s intuitive interface is a breeze, thanks to the innovative Hello UI. With all Moto apps conveniently housed in one place, customisation and personalisation have never been easier. And with the latest Android 14 onboard, along with assured 3 OS upgrades and 4 years of SMR updates, you can rest assured that your device will always be up to date and secure.

With IP68 underwater protection, the Moto Edge 50 Pro offers worry-free water usage, withstanding immersion in up to 1.5 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes. Whether you’re caught in a sudden downpour or accidentally drop your device in water, rest assured that the Moto Edge 50 Pro can handle it with ease.

Battery

With the Moto Edge 50 Pro, you’re treated to not just one but two groundbreaking charging technologies. The segment’s only TurboPowerTM 50W wireless charging ensures that you’re always powered up and ready to go, without the hassle of tangled wires or cumbersome cables. And for those moments when time is of the essence, the 125W TurboPowerTM charging kicks into high gear, fully charging your phone’s 4500mAh battery in as little as 18 minutes under ideal conditions.

Verdict

Motorola has taken a conservative approach in a few areas to keep the pricing competitive. The Moto Edge 50 Pro does not have an ultra-high resolution screen or the most powerful zoom camera. It is not a benchmark setter in any critical area, but it offers a good combination of performance, camera capability, and general ease of use, complemented by ultra-fast charging. Compared to its predecessor, the Edge 50 Pro is superior in many ways, but we suggest purchasing it at an offered price rather than its actual price.

Price

8GB RAM/256GB with a 68W charger at ₹31,999 (offer price ₹27,999)
12GB RAM/256GB with a 125W charger at ₹35,999 (offer price ₹31,999)

Sales for the new Moto Edge 50 Pro will begin on April 9th, 2024 at 12 pm IST. The phone will be available for purchase on Flipkart, Motorola.in, and at major retail outlets, such as Reliance Digital. Additionally, Flipkart will offer exclusive early access to a limited stock of the Handmade Moon Light Pearl Finish variant during a live commerce event on April 8th, 2024 at 7 pm IST.
