The device supports all types of connectivity which are Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB Type-C and even has all necessary sensors like Fingerprint Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Ambient light Sensor as well.
Motorola has gone for a boxy design, slim with a central punch hole in the display as the front camera. There is as always a Google Assistant key alongside the volume and the power buttons on the side of the phone.
Along with the power button there is a hidden fingerprint sensor as well on all the three variants. This is still a decent way to open the phone as the majority of the users have the habit of either tapping the screen or touching the power button to unlock. The size of the screen is the same for all the models i.e 6.7 inches, which is a FHD OLED panel.
Refresh rate and Ready For PC feature:
The refresh rate of the screen is different for all the three models, the Edge 20 Lite has a refresh rate of 90Hz, the Edge 20 and the Edge 20 Pro go up to 144Hz. This refresh rate is much higher than those of a premium android flagship phone. All of the Edge 20 models can use the ReadyFor PC mode which allows you to create a miniature of the phone desktop on the Windows 10 device.
This feature will allow the user to transfer data between devices more easily than using a cloud storage or another basic file transfer. In the Edge 20 and Edge 20 Pro you can get the access for ReadyFor Wireless feature as well, which removes the use of the cable and helps you pair via a QR code.
Is it worth buying?
The decent battery, camera and the charging as well as the display specs outstands the competitors.
