Motorola Edge 20 Fusion

The Motorola Edge 20 and Edge 20 Fusion are the latest additions to Motorola's mid-range smartphone lineup. The Edge series was debuted as Motorola's flagship portfolio last year, for those following track of the Lenovo-owned smartphone behemoth, which was formerly one of the most powerful names in the Indian industry. Now, Motorola is attempting to expand its user base by introducing a new pricing range for the Edge 20 series that is under Rs 30,000.

I've had my hands on the new Edge 20 Fusion, which starts at Rs 21,499 and boasts a gigantic 108MP sensor on the back. With so many smartphones currently vying for the top spot in the mid-range market, let's see how strong the Moto Edge 20 Fusion's claim to the top spot is in this in-depth review.

In almost every way, the Moto Edge 20 Fusion is a capable phone, whether it's in terms of cameras, display, or performance. With the kind of grace that may be anticipated from a mid-range offering, the device can handle practically everything thrown at it. My two reservations are about the phone's low-light photography capabilities and the lack of dual speakers.

Motorola Edge 20 Fusion Review: Design and display

The Moto Edge 20 Fusion is made up of a plastic unibody with a standard curved back and a slim chassis. Because of its big size, the gadget feels a little heavy in the hand, but the narrow aspect ratio makes up for it. The back of the phone sports a matte-like surface that, unexpectedly, does little to prevent smudges and fingerprints. A specific Google Assistant button is present, but it is located at the very top on the left edge, making it difficult to access.

 Thankfully, the fingerprint scanner isn't embedded into the Motorola logo on the rear this time, and instead is merged with the power button on the side. The bottom of the device houses the 3.5mm headphone jack, speaker grille, and USB C port. This specific model, which has a faint purple-ish tinge over the matte surface and is called Electric Graphite, gives the phone's back a really nuanced aesthetic, which I enjoy.

Three lenses are surrounded by an iPhone 11-style square camera hump, two of which protrude fairly conspicuously. The device is also IP52 rated, which means it can withstand mild splashes but isn't meant to be submerged in water.

When it comes to the display, Motorola has integrated a 90Hz AMOLED panel with a punch-hole for the selfie shooter that measures roughly 6.7 inches diagonally. Because the previous Edge was panned for having quite dramatic curves on the display's edges, Motorola has opted for a flat front design this time. As one would expect from an AMOLED panel, the contrast ratios and viewing angles were excellent.

The 90Hz refresh rate added smoothness to the UI and made it extremely responsive. The brightness levels were not the ideal, as I had some difficulty reading in bright sunlight, and the adaptive brightness sensors appeared a little shaky. The colour temperature of the display can be changed, and there's a useful feature called Attentative Display that detects your eye movements so that the screen doesn't dim when you're staring at it. On OTT platforms, HDR10 compatibility is provided, which helps to give a visually appealing experience. Aside from that, the normal toggles for enabling dark mode and changing the refresh rate are present.

Motorola Edge 20 Fusion Review: Cameras

The Moto Edge 20 Fusion has a 108MP sensor, which is the same as the one found in the Redmi Note 10 Pro Max. There's also an 8MP ultra-wide camera that can also be used as a macro camera for subjects up to 4cm in size. On the back, a 2MP depth sensor completes the triple-camera setup, while the front features a 32MP selfie camera.

My overall impressions of the Moto Edge 20 Fusion's cameras are favourable. Due to the sensor's short depth of field, the huge 1/1.5′′ sensor enables for a great amount of detail and exposure to leak into pictures while combining it with a natural bokeh. Resolution-wise The 12MP pixel-binned photos with Ultra Pixel technology, which gives a healthier dynamic range, are recommended by Motorola.

A quad-pixel 32MP mode with a more contrasty appeal and a High-resolution 108MP mode for scouring more details in the same photo are also available. The autofocus and shutter speeds are both a little slow, but the photographs are sharp and have a well-balanced colour tone.

The ultra-wide sensor has very little edge warping, and the colour temperatures are fairly similar to the primary shooter. The focus is generally sharp across the plane, with minor detail oversharpening. The macro capabilities are comparable, and I applaud Moto for not using a camera pad on the phone and instead integrating it into the ultra-wide sensor. The primary shooter likes to increase the noise in low light to achieve more exposure, although the shots are slightly soft focus overall.

When the dedicated Night mode is turned on, shadows and highlights appear less strongly. Overall, there is room for development in the low-light photography arena, which might be addressed in the future through software updates. The 32MP selfie camera isn't particularly fantastic, but it does a reasonable job at capturing face details.

Motorola Edge 20 Fusion Review: Performance and software

The Dimensity 800u 5G chipset handles processing on the Moto Edge 20 Fusion, and I have some insights on its relative performance here. It all boils down to the fact that completing moderate to simple chores on your phone will never be an issue. During my use of the Edge 20 Fusion, there was no lag, and I pushed the device through its paces. Motorola's bare-bones, stripped-down Android skin is the closest you'll come to vanilla Android, which keeps the processor from overheating.

 Performance on the Moto Edge 20 Fusion will not be an issue, as evidenced by benchmark data such as the overall score of 370,121 on Antutu. Of course, if you need more GPU power, the POCO X3 Pro with Snapdragon 860 may be a better choice. I'm not claiming the Moto Edge 20 Fusion isn't capable of handling demanding graphics tasks, but the X3 Pro has the option of running the demanding BGMI at an Extreme frame rate of 60fps versus the Edge 20 Fusion's Ultra 45fps.

The device comes standard with 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, which can be upgraded to 8GB, and 128GB of non-expandable storage. I'm concerned about the lack of stereo speakers, as they've become commonplace on mid-range gadgets. The phone's haptic feedback isn't excellent, and Motorola might learn from Redmi in this aspect. Although 5G is available on the smartphone, my view on the technology is of limited significance because there is no current 5G infrastructure in India to test it out.

Let's hope that by the end of the year, things have changed. On Noida's Jio network, I had no problems with the phone's 4G LTE service, and the earpiece and microphone performed as expected. The fingerprint sensor wasn't the fastest, but it did the job without requiring multiple attempts. As previously said, the device's MyUX skin is light and free of bloatware, with a few user-friendly customizations thrown in for good measure. Because the firm is usually quite dependable with software upgrades, the upgrade to Android 12 should be available soon.

Motorola Edge 20 Fusion Review: Battery life

Under the hood, the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion has a 5,000mAh battery, which is quite common these days. I looped a 720p movie at half brightness and volume, and the phone died after about 28 hours of playback, which is extremely impressive. In terms of real-time usage, the phone didn't die on me during the day, despite the fact that I threw a lot of YouTube and BGMI at it and had the screen on for approximately six hours.

Motorola advertises a battery life of up to two days, but in my perspective, it would need very light usage. In any case, the Moto Edge 20 Fusion features 30W fast charging, which can fully charge the phone in just over an hour.

Motorola Edge 20 Fusion Review: Verdict

In India, the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion starts at Rs. 21,499. As of Sep 21, 2021, it is available for the lowest price on Flipkart in India.

Is the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion powerful enough to beat the competition? With the specifications on board, I believe the smartphone makes an impressive statement. It obviously speaks well for Motorola in terms of value for money. There's no doubting that the Edge 20 Fusion has a good design, a good AMOLED display, cameras that operate well in daylight, good performance, clean software, and a long battery life.

Could there have been improvements to allow for better low-light shooting? Definitely. Is it a problem that there aren't any stereo speakers? Yes, I believe so. Is it possible to make the screen brighter? It was something I would have enjoyed. These are small flaws in an otherwise remarkable Motorola mid-range endeavour, and I have no hesitation in recommending the device to anyone who want a clean software experience without sacrificing important components of a smartphone.
