If you're looking for a more affordable phone with a good screen, the Motorola Edge (2020) is less expensive and offers an OLED display, which generally provides better contrast and colors compared to the LCD screen on the Moto G100. However, if you prioritize battery life and newer hardware, the Moto G100 has a larger battery and a more powerful processor which can be better for gaming or intensive tasks. Both phones have the same screen size, a similar camera setup, and plastic bodies. They both run Android but have different release years, with the Edge being older. Keep in mind the Edge has an under-display fingerprint scanner and a headphone jack, while the G100 has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and supports Motorola's "Ready For" platform, which might sway your decision based on convenience or multimedia needs.

TechRadar

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."

Pocket-lint

Mike Lowe | March 2021
"A budget gaming-capable phone that foregoes the AMOLED screen hype and camera cost implications to deliver a half-price near-flagship that, in use, adds up to oh so much more. Even plugging away at games for hours at a time doesn't cause too much trouble where battery is concerned. The 5,000mAh cell is a big part of the reason for the G100's above average weight, but it's a great capacity to have at your fingertips."
