Motorola Edge unlocked revealed (off Verizon) for $300 less

Published

on

There’s a new Motorola Edge device out there in the world with 5G connectivity options and a $700 price tag. This is different from the $1k Motorola Edge+ with Verizon. The new version is “universally unlocked” and will be available for sale from Motorola itself inside the United States – not with a carrier. The devices look very, VERY similar.

While the Edge+ with Verizon has mmWave 5G, the Edge (non-plus) only has sub-6 5G. The displays on both devices are identical – both are 6.7-inches large, both called “Endless Edge.” That includes the HDR10 and the 90Hz image refresh rate, too.

While the Verizon device has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, the non-plus Motorola Edge works with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 SoC. The non-plus works with 6GB RAM while the Verizon device has 12GB RAM. The Verizon phone has a 5000mAh battery, while the non-plus has a 4500mAh battery.

The Plus has wireless charging, while the non-plus has no wireless charging. While the Plus has a 108-MP sensor, the non-plus has a 64-MP sensor. The non-plus has just 2x optical zoom, while the Plus sports OIS that the non-plus does not have.

So for $300 less, assuming you’re paying all the cash all at once, you’re getting a slightly less capable device in several key areas. You’re still getting that same wild display, and a ToF sensor on the back – so maybe you’ll find it worth the cash? We’ll see this device with a release date later this year.

The Motorola Edge+ is on our review bench right this minute. Stick around as we check the abilities of the machine in a long-term review – coming up in our main news feed (and our review collection) soon! Let us know if you have any questions about this device right this minute, and we’ll take a peek!

Motorola Moto X30 Pro Will Have An Unusual Camera System

Published

on

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Moto X30 Pro. The strangest thing about the model won’t be its unusually large camera sensor, especially since Xiaomi already claimed that crown. Instead, it will be the use of three focal lengths in the camera system that could mean the removal of one traditional part of that group.

Motorola’s Weibo account revealed that the Moto X30 Pro will have a 35mm focal point at its widest. This will be joined by a 50mm telephoto that could have a 2x magnification, as well as an 80mm longer telephoto option. If this is an accurate description, it would suggest that the phone will ditch the ultra-wide shooter in favor of two telephoto cameras when some of its peers opt to eschew telephoto cameras to make way for a macro alternative.

Whether this will give the Moto X30 Pro an actual advantage over other high-end phones this year remains to be seen, literally. It sounds almost like a mixed bag, at least in the camera department, though the rest of the rumored specs are on par for a 2022 flagship. The Moto X30 Pro, which could go by the name Motorola Frontier in global markets, is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, bear a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED screen, and boast 125W super-fast charging for its modest 4,500mAh battery.

How To Fix Amazon Prime Video Not Streaming In 4K

Published

on

Not all Amazon Prime Video titles are available in 4K quality. Older movies and shows often do not support that format, and even some newer flicks will still be unavailable for a variety of reasons ranging from licensing to technical difficulties. As a result, your title of choice might look less-than-perfect, not due to a fault on Amazon’s end, but simply because that title may not support 4K in the first place. 

Amazon has a list of titles available in 4K, so checking whether the one you’re trying to watch is, is fairly easy. You can see all the 4K offerings by heading over to the official Amazon website. The list is not very intuitive in the sense that you can’t check for specifics within the results as this is already a narrowed-down list. However, you can also simply type in the title of your movie or show into the search bar above to check whether it’s available on Prime Video and in 4K.

You can also search directly on Amazon Prime Video. Any variation of “4K,” “4K movies ultra HD,” “4K film,” or even something more specific like “4K romantic comedies” should produce a list of titles that you can watch right now. If you managed to locate your title on one of these lists and yet it still looks underwhelming, there may be other issues at hand.
