Deals: Moto Edge 50 Fusion launches on Monday, Redmi Note 13 Pro+ price drops

Peter, 08 June 2024

The Motorola Edge 50 Fusion is available in several regions and starting next week, it will be available in Germany too. We have a review unit at the office and there is plenty to test – the 6.7” 144Hz display, the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset, 50+13MP cameras and the 5,000mAh battery with 68W fast wired-only charging. We will report back with our findings soon. The Fusion is on pre-order right now, but open sales start on Monday.

The Fusion is a more affordable alternative to the Motorola Edge 50 Pro. That said, the Pro is €100 less than it was at launch. It has a higher resolution 144Hz OLED display (1220p+ vs. 1080p+), both are curved. The Pro has the more powerful Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chip and a 10MP 3x tele camera on top of what the Fusion offers. The battery is smaller at 4,500mAh, but it supports very fast wired and wireless charging (120W and 50W, respectively).

For around the same price as the Fusion, you can have the Redmi Note 13 Pro+ from Xiaomi instead. It has that higher resolution 1220p+ display (at only 120Hz, but it is a 12-bit panel). It’s curved too, if that is something that you care about. The Note jumps over to the MediaTek camp with a Dimensity 7200 Ultra and packs an impressive 200MP main camera. It has in-sensor zoom, which isn’t as good as the dedicated lens on the Edge 50 Pro, but it does beat the Fusion. This one splits the difference with a 5,000mAh battery but with 120W wired-only charging.

Another option from Xiaomi at around this price is the Poco X6 Pro. It skips the 200MP camera (it has a basic 64MP module instead), but focuses on more performance with a Dimensity 8300 Ultra. The display is a flat 6.67” OLED panel (120Hz, 12-bit). The phone has a weaker dust and water resistance rating compared to the Redmi Note (IP54 vs. IP68) and slower 67W wired-only charging for its 5,000mAh battery.

Moving on to cheaper 5G models, the Samsung Galaxy A25 is down to just over €200. It is powered by the old Exynos 1280 and a 5,000mAh battery with 25W charging. The display is a 6.5” 120Hz OLED (FHD+) and you get a 50MP main camera (with a small 1/2.76” sensor and OIS) plus an 8MP ultra wide. The main camera can record 4K video at 30fps.

Some €50 cheaper is the Galaxy A15 5G. This one uses the Dimensity 6100+ instead and runs its 6.5” FHD+ OLED display at 90Hz. Other changes include demoting the ultra wide camera to 5MP and dropping the stereo speakers. Still, €50 cheaper is a major discount in this price range.

Instead of the A15, you could get the Poco C65 from Xiaomi. This one has a larger 6.74” IPS LCD (90Hz), but it only has HD+ resolution. And with a Helio G85 chipset, it only has 4G connectivity. There’s no ultra wide camera on board and the 5,000mAh battery charges at only 18W (vs. 25W for the A15).
