revealed just over a month ago as an outstanding new candidate for the title of best mid-range phone out there, the 5G-enabled Motorola Edge (2022) was not only quickly snapped up by two of the top three US cellular network operators, but discounted heavily (from an already reasonable price) by just one or two string attached.
In addition to Arrive late to this budget-friendly villain’s availability party, Essentially overlooking the affordable part of its value proposition, Verizon charged an arguably outrageous $660 for essentially the same device that sold for $500 (with no special terms) from both T-Mobile and AT&T.
Fortunately (and not at all surprising), the newest member of the extensive Motorola Edge portfolio is now also highlighted by Big Red with a new line of “select” wireless service. Unfortunately, this $300 price cut (applied to your bill as monthly credits over a three-year period) still can’t compete with the phone 100 percent T-Mo discount.
Of course, saving $300 with no mandatory number porting or device trade-ins is absolutely nothing to sneeze at, leaving you on the hook for 36 monthly payments of $10 each or $360 in total after you’ve taken the above credits into consideration. .
For what it’s worth, Verizon’s Motorola Edge (2022) 5G variant comes with double the 128GB internal storage of the same handset on T-Mobile and AT&T, as well as an identical 8GB RAM count, quite powerful (especially by the under $400 standards MediaTek Dimensity 1050 processor, buttery smooth 144Hz OLED display with a generous 6.6-inch diagonal and a decent amount of 2400 x 1080 pixels, a 5,000 mAh battery that can be recharged at 30W (15W wireless) and a 50 + 13 + 2 MP triple camera system on the rear.
Not to be confused with the slightly older, more expensive and considerably more advanced Edge+ (2022), this thing is certainly not an alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, but compared to, for example, the Galaxy A53 5G, it is probably the better overall option.
