We got very interesting device from Motorola here. While few brands are trying to offer some flagship killers Motorola has introduced some flagship challengers. Basically recipe is almost the same, premium set of component with a slight difference, the choice of processor. Motorola considers that mid high end processor should deliver excellent user experience. Motorola Edge is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 instead of 865 integrated in most of flagships. Motorola is surely right here, and for mostly all daily usages this Snapdragon 765 should be very capable. Motorola has chosen a 4500 mAh to power its originally designed device and we expect this device to achieve a better performance than flagships that would give it a competitive advantage.
Motorola Edge gives capability to choose between better battery life or better fluidity switching screen refresh rate from 60Hz to 90Hz. There is also an additional settings (auto 90) offering an adaptative refresh rate, in this case Moto Edge will adapt the refresh rate depending on content to be displayed.
We have executed viSerMark protocol using the different settings. Well, we have started with 90Hz and 90 Auto and in both configuration Moto Edge achieved a good score, around 180 and 1.5 Days ranking.
We were expecting Moto Edge to rank 2 Days when switching to 60 Hz refresh rate. We have been very surprised to obtain a lower execution time in this configuration, almost 10 hours less in this configuration! We have confirmed this with a second run showing exactly same behaviour, surely a sw issue there.
Here is below summary of our testing runs. In order to compute the official score ranking we have only selected 90Hz and 90 auto refresh rates
First graphic below shows that choosing 90 Auto instead of 90 Hz will not highly improve battery life.
Second graph shows issue detected during viSerMark execution when switching refresh rate to 60 Hz (black and green curves are set at 60 Hz, while Blue is set at 90 Hz and green at 90 Auto)
Motorola Edge achieves a reserved performance. With screen settings set on best fluidity it manages to rank a good 1.5 days, we were expecting this device to score among best performance in 60 Hz. Software issue didn’t allow us to confirm.
ViserMark tests are performed with the strictest protocol in a controlled environment to ensure repetition and consistency powered and automated by SmartViser’s test automation solution viSer. The automation test includes a variety of user actions from calls to social media and periods of standby times.
