If you prioritize a high-quality camera and premium build quality, the iPhone 13 with its glass back and better camera performance is a solid investment despite the higher price. However, the Motorola Edge (2020) offers a larger screen with a curved edge which some may find more immersive for media consumption, plus it has a longer battery life and comes at a more budget-friendly price. The iPhone 13 has a higher peak brightness for its display, but the Motorola Edge supports a higher refresh rate for smoother scrolling. The Motorola also has more storage space, while the iPhone 13 is known for its performance. Remember, the iPhone operates on iOS and the Motorola on Android, which could influence your decision based on your preferred ecosystem. Give Feedback

James Peckham | September 2022
"The iPhone 13 isn’t a game changer for Apple’s series of smartphones, but it’s an important iteration that offers better battery life, a better processor and an upgraded camera setup than iPhones that have gone before it. If you’re looking for a fast and capable smartphone, and don’t need the extra features of the pricier Pro model, this is a top choice."

Tom Bedford | July 2020
"The Motorola Edge has a battery that won’t leave you wanting, whether you just want to take some pictures, or play games and record videos for much of the day, so if you don’t want to worry about having to top up your device all the time, the Edge might be a good choice. Leaving aside its impressive specs and features, the Motorola Edge just looks pretty good, and it feels great in the hand too, so if ‘style’ is a factor in your phone-buying decisions the Edge is well worth a look."
