Motorola Edge 20 Fusion review: a safe bet in the mid-range segment

Motorola as of late reported its new arrangement of mid-range cell phones as the Motorola Edge 20 and Edge 20 Fusion. For those monitoring the Lenovo-claimed cell phone monster which was once one of the most predominant brands in the Indian space, the Edge series was presented as Motorola’s leader setup last year. Presently, Motorola is attempting another cost section of sub-Rs 30,000 for the Edge 20 series to build its client base. I have my hands on the new Edge 20 Fusion which starts at Rs 21,499, with its most noteworthy element being the gigantic 108MP sensor it harbors on the back. With a few cell phones previously swarming the mid-range market, how about we investigate how great the Moto Edge 20 Fusion’s case to the best position is in this definite audit.


The Moto Edge 20 Fusion is an able telephone in virtually all respects, be it the cameras, show or execution. The gadget can deal with nearly anything tossed at it with the sort of elegance that can be anticipated from a mid-range offering. My interests lie just with the telephone’s treatment of low-light photography and the shortfall of double speakers.

The lowdown

The Moto Edge 20 Fusion utilizes a plastic unibody plan with a standard bended back and sensibly slight skeleton. There is some weight to the gadget inferable from its somewhat huge size, yet the thin angle proportion makes up for the close by feel. The back has a matte-like completion to it which shockingly does very little to hinder smears and finger impression marks. In brand name Motorola design, there is a committed Google Assistant button, however its location at the extreme top on the left edge makes it difficult to reach. Fortunately the unique finger impression scanner hasn’t been incorporated into the Smartphone Motorola logo at the back this time, and on second thought, you get one in a substantially more sensible situation as an afterthought coordinated with the force button. The 3.5mm earphone jack, speaker grille, and USB C port can be found at the base. Called Electric Graphite, this specific variation that sports a slight purple-ish tone over the matte completion gives a very nuanced look to the telephone’s back which I appreciate. An iPhone 11-esque square camera knock encompasses three focal points, of which two project out conspicuously. The gadget is additionally IP52 guaranteed which shields it from light sprinkles yet is most certainly not implied for lowering in water.

The super wide sensor’s distortion at the edges is extremely insignificant and the shading temperatures are very in accordance with the essential shooter. Concentrate by and large is sharp across the plane with negligible oversharpening of subtleties. The full scale capacities are comparative and I like Moto’s endeavors to not camera cushion the telephone and coordinate it inside the super wide sensor. In low light, the essential shooter likes to raise the clamor to get in more openness yet the pictures have a somewhat delicate center generally. Shadows and features include less conspicuously than when you have the devoted Night mode turned on. In general there is extension for development in the low-light photography office which might perhaps be helped through future programming refreshes. The 32MP selfie shooter is not much, however it gets a lot of facial subtleties precisely.

The preparation on the Moto Edge 20 Fusion is taken care of by the Dimensity 800u 5G chipset and I have a few subtleties on its relative exhibition here. Fundamentally it comes down to the way that getting past moderate to simple undertakings on your telephone won’t ever be an issue. The Edge 20 Fusion didn’t show any slack during my utilization and I truly put the gadget through some serious hardship. Motorola’s no frills, stripped-down skin running over Android is fundamentally the nearest you will stock Android, which keeps the processor from getting excessively overpowered. With benchmark numbers, for instance, the overall score of 370,121 on Antutu as statement, I can say that display will not be an issue on the Moto Edge 20 Fusion. Obviously, in case you are searching for better GPU abilities, the POCO X3 Pro (survey) running the Snapdragon 860 could more readily fill your needs. I’m not saying that the Moto Edge 20 Fusion isn’t capable at substantial graphical undertakings, however you do have the alternative to run the requesting BGMI at Extreme casing rate choice of 60fps on the X3 Pro when contrasted with the Ultra 45 fps on the Edge 20 Fusion.

You get 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM in the base rendition of the gadget and it can go up to 8GB while capacity stays non-expandable at 128GB. The absence of sound system speakers inconveniences me as their consideration has become very common on mid-range gadgets. Haptic criticism on the Smartphone isn’t incredible, and Motorola can do well to follow Redmi in such a manner. 5G is available on the gadget, however since there is no current 5G framework in India to test it out, my perspective on the innovation is of restricted worth. Hopefully that changes before the current year’s over. I confronted no issues with the telephone’s 4G LTE administration on Noida’s Jio organization while the earpiece and amplifier functioned as promoted. The finger impression sensor wasn’t the snappiest however it took care of business without rehashed endeavors required. As referred to before the MyUX skin running on the contraption is astoundingly light and free of bloatware while Motorola has sprinkled in two or three straightforward customisations too. The organization is by and large truly dependable with programming refreshes so you should see the move up to Android 12 really soon.

The Motorola Edge 20 Fusion packs in a 5,000mAh cell in the engine which is essentially a standard-issue nowadays. I circled a 720p film at half splendor and volume and the telephone pursued out playing it back for almost 28 hours, which is very acceptable. As far as constant utilization, the telephone didn’t vanish on me during the day even with broad YouTube and BGMI I tossed at it and the screen-on time being around six hours. Motorola guarantees as long as 2 days of battery reinforcement however as I would like to think, your utilization would need to be exceptionally light to accomplish that. Regardless, the Moto Edge 20 Fusion accompanies 30W quick energizing that squeezes the telephone in barely 60 minutes.

Final verdict

Does the Motorola Edge 20 Fusion have the oomph factor to beat the opposition? I’m of the assessment that the gadget offers an amazing expression with the specs ready. It absolutely looks good for Motorola as an incentive for-cash recommendation. There is no denying that the Edge 20 Fusion has a sensibly decent plan, a nice AMOLED show, cameras that represent themselves in sunshine, respectable execution, clean programming, and an enduring battery. Could upgrades have been made for better low-light shooting? Certainly. Is the absence of sound system speakers an issue? I suspect as much. Could the screen be more splendid? I would’ve loved it. These are minor detours over a generally noteworthy mid-range endeavor by Motorola and I’ve no issue in prescribing the gadget to clients who might want a perfect programming experience while not thinking twice about fundamental parts of a cell phone insight.
