If a higher-performing camera is important to you and you're willing to pay a bit more, the Asus Zenfone 10 has a slight edge in both photo and video quality over the Motorola Edge (2021). However, for a lower price, the Motorola Edge (2021) offers a larger screen which might enhance your multimedia viewing experience. Both phones have a similar battery life, but if a brighter and potentially better-quality screen is a priority, the Asus offers an OLED display with higher peak brightness, while the Motorola has an LCD screen. Both run on Android and provide ample storage, but the Asus is a newer model which might mean more recent features and updates. Give Feedback

Richard Priday | August 2023
"It's the best small phone for fans of compact handsets, but the Asus Zenfone 10 could pull users away from Samsung and Google flagships with top-quality performance and battery life. If you can forgive its more limited photography options and the shorter-than-average software support window, the Zenfone 10 is a top choice."

"If you've overlooked Motorola's higher-end phones in the past, the Motorola Edge 5G UW does a very good job at trying to regain your attention. Improvements to the main camera impress. I'm also impressed by how quickly the phone recharges. It's the affordability that ultimately wins the day for the Motorola Edge. this phone offers enough premium features to put it at the forefront of midrange options."
