Motorola Edge vs Motorola Edge Plus – How Are They Different?

By Michael Grothaus •  Updated: 04/30/20 •  4 min read

Motorola may not be the biggest name in smartphones, especially when compared to Apple, Samsung, and Google, but the company has a good reputation for creating decently-spec’d Android handsets at relatively decent price points (and these two phones are no exception).

Motorola’s latest two flagships, the Motorola Edge and the Motorola Edge Plus are no exception. But what many might find confusing about the devices is that despite the “Plus” in the name of the latter, each phone has an identical display.

So just how are the two different? Let’s take a look.

The good news is that no matter which hone you choose, you’re getting an amazing display. But as for which is better than the other…it depends.

If you’re looking for performance, the Edge Plus is the clear winner thanks to its 12GB of RAM, 108MP rear camera, and Qualcomm Snapdragon 865.

However, if you’re looking for expandability, the regular Edge wins out. That’s because it features a dual SIM slot as well as offers expandable storage up to 1TB. The Plus doesn’t give you that.
