Competition in the smartphone industry has become increasingly fierce. In order to win a place, many mobile phone manufacturers have adopted cost-effective strategies. For example, two emerging smart phone brands, iQOO and realme, have risen rapidly due to their good price/performance ratio, and Xiaomi can be said to be the originator of price/performance ratio.
Nowadays, Motorola, a veteran of the mobile phone industry, has followed the example of Xiaomi and embarked on a cost-effective road.
In the recently launched Motorola Edge S, the 6GB+128GB version of the phone is only 1999 yuan.
The processor is the biggest highlight of Motorola’s Edge S. The Snapdragon 870 5G processor was launched for the first time. With Turbo LPDDR5 and Turbo UFS3.1 technology, it can be used smoothly no matter how many tasks are running in the background. At the same time, Motorola Edge S can also realize fast transfer of large files without waiting.
Although the Snapdragon 870 still uses the 7nm process, its performance has been greatly improved compared to the Snapdragon 865. In terms of CPU and GPU performance, the Snapdragon 870 is 12% and 10% higher than the Snapdragon 865, and the main frequency is also increased to 3.2GHz.
From the performance point of view, the performance of Motorola Edge S is very eye-catching.
In terms of battery life, Motorola Edge S is equipped with a large 5000 mAh battery, which can bring a full-day battery life experience. It can talk on 5G for 38.1 hours and performs well.
But in other respects, the highlights of Motorola Edge S are somewhat good.
The charging speed of Motorola Edge S is only 20W, which is a bit slow. Today, many mid-range models have used 30W, or even faster charging speeds.
Motorola Edge S is equipped with an ordinary LCD screen, 6.7 inches in size. Its screen resolution is 1080P high definition, and has 409PPi, DCI-P3, the screen is very ordinary.
Motorola Edge S uses a 90Hz high brush, which greatly improves the smoothness of the machine again.
However, Motorola Edge S uses a dual-hole design, which greatly affects the appearance. The back of the machine is very similar to Apple’s Yuba-style camera module, and there is almost no aesthetics at all.
Motorola Edge S uses a rear-mounted four-camera solution. The main camera is 64 million pixels, and the secondary camera is 16 million wide-angle, 2 million image depth of field, and TOF lens. With the cooperation of AI, the camera performance can be more in line with the needs of the public.
In the front configuration, Motorola Edge S is a combination of 16 million pixels + 8 million pixels, which can achieve dual-view video recording, and can shoot unique VLOG.
At the same time, Motorola Edge S also has a very interesting feature, that is, 15 seconds to watch the heart rate, which can further protect the safety of users. Moreover, Motorola Edge S can also achieve multi-screen collaboration, breaking the boundaries between terminals.
Overall, performance and battery life are the two highlights of Motorola Edge S. But on the screen and charging, the performance of this machine is not satisfactory.
From the overall configuration point of view, Motorola Edge S is not very cost-effective. If you want to emulate Xiaomi, you can’t steal the rice.
