The Motorola Edge 20 Fusion Review



Overview

Motorola until recently revealed its new mid-range smartphone in the form of the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion. The Edge 20 Fusion feature a 6.7-inch, 8-bit color, 90Hz OLED display, a MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor, and a main rear camera with a 108 MP Quad Function Camera System. The main camera also comes with an ultra-wide-angle macro vision lens that helps fit more in the frame. With macro lenses, you can get very close to the subject. Additionally, its intensified light sensitivity empowers you to take sharp and clear images in any light setting.

The Edge 20 Fusion is also splash-resistant, with a waterproof IP52 rating, meaning it can withstand water splash without causing damage to the phone. The phone runs on near-stock Android 11 and comes with business-grade security. Significantly, it has a few resemblances with the Motorola Edge 20 Lite. Just as with the design, this is an even more toned-down variant. Notwithstanding, we think this smartphone is worth checking out.

The Design




The Edge 20 Fusion spans a large 6.7-inch display, weighs just 185 grams, and has a thickness measuring 8.25 mm – is somewhat bulky to hold. The weight balance is done well with this phone. And yes, it is not a thin and light device by any means, but still a respectable one.

The Moto Edge 20 Fusion is available in two color options: Cyber Teal and Electric Graphite. Bold colors and beautiful, curved edges help it stand out from the crowd. Although it looks like it has a robust build and is somewhat heavy knit owing to its large battery capacity, however, it’s not as heavy as it looks. The body is wholly made of plastic, yet it does not feel cheap at all.


On the back is the triple rear camera setup on the upper left-hand corner along with an LED flash while the iconic M logo sits in the middle. Totally, maintaining the back spotlessly clean can be an incessant piece of work. With a somewhat thick camera in the back, it is recommended to smack a case to prevent inadvertent scratches on the lenses. But for what it’s worth, you get a transparent case in the box.

At the front, is a center punch-hole notch, and right above it is the earpiece. Also noticeable is a relatively large bezel at the bottom side and thin bezels on the other three sides. The 10-bit AMOLED display dominated the front of the phone. On the right is the power button incorporating a fingerprint scanner while the volume rockers are placed right above it. Furthermore, on the left is a dedicated Google Assistant button, along with a card tray for two nano-sized SIM cards and a microSD card in a hybrid slot. At the top is the secondary microphone. And lastly, on the bottom, is a 3.5mm headphone jack, Type-C port, main microphone, and speaker.

The Display




Most smartphones offer an AMOLED display while some even offer a high refresh rate and has been a success story for most brands as well. But, the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion has taken it to the next level with the inclusion of a 10-bit AMOLED panel and a 90Hz screen refresh rate. This Motorola Edge 20 Fusion phone is sporting a large 6.7-inch Full HD+ resolution display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and HDR10 certified. Cheers to the 90Hz refresh rate, scrolling through the UI feels smooth and fluid. The colors are punchy and have the right amount of contrast. So, if you like to watch movies on your smartphone, then the Edge 20 Fusion’s OLED display will certainly amaze you. The screen gets exceptionally vivid and is simply clear even outdoors. Additionally, its system-wide dark mode offers a satisfying experience. It also has good viewing angles. But take note that the display is very much prone to fingerprint smudges. Lastly, the display on the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion is easily the best seen in this segment.

The Performance



The Edge 20 Fusion runs on Android 11 OS, powered by MediaTek Dimensity 800U 5G chipset, and features a few Motorola personalization - making this one of its biggest takeaways. The chipset is an octa-core chipset built on a 7nm fabrication process. Moreover, the phone has two Arm Cortex-A76 processors clocked at 2.4GHz and six Arm Cortex-A55 processors with a speed clocking at 2GHz. It also has Arm Mali-G57 GPU and an independent AI processing unit (APU).

The phone comes in two configurations, 6GB and 8GB LPDDR4X RAM along with 128GB internal storage. With the RAM boost feature, the memory can be expanded by an additional 2GB. Furthermore, the phone comes with a hybrid slot.

This phone is highly deliverable as it can handle all the basic tasks such as web browsing, video streaming, and social media scrolling. The phone also comes with dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, and a 3.5mm headphone jack - all of which worked well. The phone also performs well while switching between apps and does not dawdle at any given time. In terms of gaming, the phone can run with Smooth + Ultra combo and CoD Mobile which can run with mid graphics and high frame rate.
