It’s no longer a big secret that Motorola does better than most smartphone manufacturers in terms of sales growth, especially in the ever-critical US market, and while the company relied primarily on the mid-range Moto G family not too long ago, the premium Edge portfolio is also gaining popularity lately.
This includes a fairly new high-end 2022 Plus model that normally costs $1,000, offering direct competition to the likes of Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro and Samsung’s Galaxy S22+ and S22 Ultra, and perhaps more specifically, a 2021 upper mid-ranger. which is often available at significant discounts.
The appropriate name Motorola Edge (2021), for example, was recently discounted by a whopping $300 from a list price of $699.99 for Amazon’s Prime Day 2022 festival, and believe it or not, the unlocked 5G-enabled handset is now even cheaper with no special requirements and to tie to anything.
While Amazon’s new $311 discount may not feel life-changing, it amounts to a whopping 44 percent that cut the aforementioned MSRP of a non-carrier-specific 2021 Edge with 256GB of internal storage and quite a few 8GB of RAM. . The “catch” is that the heavily discounted devices will be sold by a third-party vendor rather than Amazon itself, although the e-commerce giant will handle the shipments while guaranteeing the reliability of “Storm Unity Games”.
Alternatively, you can get the Nebula Blue-coated Motorola Edge (2021) with unlocked 5G support for a cool $300 less than usual from Best Buy, which also continues to charge $799.99 instead of $999.99 for a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 powered Edge+ (2022) flagship with no less than 512 gigabytes of storage and 8GB of RAM.
This new-generation Edge Plus beast does not appear to be available from Amazon at all at the time of writing, suggesting Prime Day 2022 sales have exceeded expectations.
That was probably also the case for the non-Plus 2021 edition, which packs a more than decent Snapdragon 778 processor and has a silky-smooth 6.8-inch LCD display with 144Hz refresh rate technology.
