Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Pro's High refresh rate screen really smooth. Closest to pure Android. Simple clean UI not bogged down like galaxy Devcies and old LG. Samsung put a lot of ram in flagship devices but it uses a lot. Constantly have to clean it via internal app. Wife complains all the time about S21 Ultra. Really good in low light. Using newer tech to accomplish this. jury still out on 108MP camera but so far so good for price paid on mid range phone. Good battery life. Almost 2 full day's. Moto actions for flashlight and camera without unlock. Chop chop twist twist. No one has this and given time change really great feature to find the door lock! Cons No charger. However, if buy phone unlocked a 30watt charger in the box. Bless Verizon for needing more profit. No biggie as Samsung Apple been doing the samething now for a couple of years Wireless charging but Motorola has been consistant not doing it in mid tier but, be nice to see. Has wireless charging in Edge + Upgrade pricing at times not good. Picked mine up under 500 and it's a great deal givencram/storage size and Motorola reliability.

Excellent phone. Might be my favorite yet.

Exokill420 · 8 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

So I've always had Verizon, ever since the LG titanium phone, which was my first phone. Shortly after and after trying all the different phone styles (apple, Google, etc) I immediately fell in love with my first Galaxy note and always got Samsung Galaxy models ever since. Fast forward to yesterday. After using Samsung phones for years, this phone so far is the Best smartphone I've used to date. Pros: amazing battery life** compared to other phones I've used the same way -fast and snappy UI. No lags or hitches(yet and I've used half my memory storage already) - connections are much quicker. Bluetooth, services, apps. Everything opens, runs and closes much much smoother and quicker. -audio is fantastic so far. Haven't fine tuned any equalizers yet, but sound is very crisp and clear from box. -camera : can't comment as I have yet to use it. - screen/display. Currently I don't have a case yet so the factory plastic is still on, and to be honest, it looks better than most other phones I've used or seen with bare glass. Cons: The biggest issue I had with this, is that this phone doesn't come complete with a charging unit. It comes with 1 double ended usb-c Cable, which is excellent if you're transferring data between phones that have the same port, BUT if this was my very first phone purchase ever, I would have 0 ways of charging it out of the box I presume it's a marketing tactic, which if it it's, that's a very low and dirty one because one should not have to BUY any kind of charging accessories for a brand new phone. Especially with how much they cost, the least they could do is give you a means to charge your device. Other than that big issue I had con wise. This phone has been excellent so far and I'm excited to have it!

I bought this phone less than 30 days ago and owe over 600$ and the phone says it retails for 549 so there is that little cheat they got me on but this is a review of the phone. ONE -- who has ever heard of a new phone that won't charge wirelessly. In fact they show a picture of it charging wirelessly. This phone does Not do that. it also lags horribly between apps. I havent see anything like it. it is SOOO slow. Don't buy this phone.

I've been a Motorola customer for the last 8 years. So far this is the best 5G phone of all the phones I've had. Great features, and very easy to use. Very happy with this phone. I recommend this phone.

Phone is a total downgrade

1 out of 5 rating

Cole · 9 days ago

Hade the Note 10+, loved it but decided it was time for a new phone. Was talked into the Edge 5G UW. Terrible recommendation. Camera is absolutely garbage. UI is too much like an iphone, obviously I don't want an iphone if I'm buying an Android. Extremely disappointed with this device. Going to the Pixel 6 immediately.

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

I have been using Motorola phones for over a decade now. I love the little software features they have, I love their turbo charging, but with their latest phone the charger block was not included. At first I thought this wouldn't be an issue; I'll just use the one I have, but of course the cable they included was USB C on both ends so I can't use my previous wall charger. What's up with that Motorola? That is the only reason I didn't give this phone 5 statrs
