There is a so called device compatibility and if your phone does not qualify means even your phone runs in 4G or 5G they cant program it, all phones has different type of programming and that is why there is the "carrier exclusive" means the phone has been built with the guidelines of that particular carrier to cater all of its capacity.

If Motorola manages to fit an under display camera soon enough in it's next flagship, it will take Samsung crown for best Android phone manufacturer.

I really like it. Huge battery, impressive waterfall screen, balanced 90hz refresh rate. Considerably better choice than S20+ or Ultra. Let's wait for reviews.

IP68 means 1,5m + 30 min, also prptection against dust.

Hey look another $1000 phone... Don't we already have so many of these readily available.

Quote, "...and there's no official ingress protection rating, although Motorola claims the Edge+ is mostly compliant with the IP68 spec in its internal testing. Even so, not wanting to spend the money on a test for such an expensive device, leaves a bit of a sour aftertaste."

Lenovo is a cheapskate for not opening it's tight ar$e in not pursuing the ingress protection certification of its Motorola Edge Plus.

Had this phone been sub-$700, it non-pursuance would have been understandable, in its attempt to avoid raising the cost of the phone. But this phone is more than $1000. It is expected all phones over a certain price (say in excess of $850) ought to be IP-certified - handset manufacturers owe it to the paying consumers.

If proof were needed, the Edge Plus is not worth the giddy price Lenovo are asking.


Quote, "Motorola claims the Edge+ is mostly compliant with the IP68 spec in its internal testing"

Being most compliant is simply not good enough. It is either compliant with IP68, or it isn't.

With Motorola foolishly coming out with such a statement, essentially indicates the Edge Plus is not IP68 compliant, but possibly one of the following: IP67, IP58, or IP57.

At the very least Motorola could have emulated the tactics employed by OnePlus last year, when OnePlus deployed the 'bucket of water test" to prove its OnePlus 7T phone was in-house IPx8 rated.

With that 9mm+ thickness they should have went the popup-selfie route. They'd outsell all the competitors up to this point...the only two reasons I personally would not buy is that and the asking price. At that price I would expect it to do my oil changes for the next 10 months because I won't be able to afford those if I buy it lol.

No doubt Motorola Edge+ & LG Velvet is the most beautiful release of 2020.

Interested in AI RAW mode on the new Honor though. It might be possible you could do the denoise yourself in PS after, without the watercolor effects.
