If you are a curve display hater, you won’t be liking the new motorola flagship device, edge+, which has ridiculous curves. And I thought waterfall display is kind of a Chinese handset maker thing. Oh wait. Never mind.

Motorola edge plus Smartphone

Anyways, so yeah, motorola’s latest flagship, edge+, is official and it is a looker (albeit a little on the chunky side…) with a performance to match. As far as aesthetics go, lets just say that we haven’t been impressed by motorola phone design since like the Razr folding screen phone.

In the area of performance, it has a lot to show too with specifications like mmWave 5G technology, Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform, 12 GB LPDDR5 memory, UFS 3.0 storage, 90 Hz refresh rate with billion shades of color, 108 MP tri-camera system with dual OIS and 6K video recording, Waves-tuned powerful stereo speakers, and a 5,000 mAh battery that promised 2 full days of use.
