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."

Lauren Goode | August 2019
"It is difficult to drain the 4300-mAh battery on the Samsung Galaxy Note10+. I tried. I used it over the weekend, and I didn’t have to recharge it once between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening. It’s a shiny spectacle of a phone, a kind of playground for Samsung, where the company can flex its acrobatic skills."
