Motorola’s 2022 flagship, the Edge Plus wasn’t marketed strongly enough to standout from last year’s stellar competition. But it’s 50% sale from it’s original $999 retail price makes it the best current smartphone deal in the US under $500.


  • Bright and fluid OLED display with a 144hz refresh rate
  • Industry leading Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • Best cameras on any Motorola phone


  • Not fully waterproof, only IP52 water resistant
  • Gorilla Glass  should have been Victus

Motorola released the Edge + February 2022, and a quick search online for reviews shows it was received fairly by consumers and the media alike – even if its marketing campaigns weren’t as grandeur as some of the competition. Equipped with the most powerful SOC of 2022 in the form of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the Edge + comes in 8GB/256, 12GB/256GB, 8GB/512GB, and 12GB/512GB capacities.

It released with a flagship price tag at $999, which is one of the reasons Apple and Samsung flagships overshadowed the device, but now you can get the Edge + 2022 at a whopping half off the retail price – bringing it down to $499.

Being I’m quite a stickler for the best bargain, I just had to invest in a device with true flagship caliber specs – AND had the compatible cellular bands of Dish Network’s Boost Infinite brand – as does the Motorola Edge Plus. So let’s get into our Motorola Edge + 2022 review.
