by birtanpublished on August 23, 2020

Hey it's Joshua Vergara what's going on everybody a couple of things to start off before we get into this segment from my podcast Tekin tea with Joshua Vergara now first of all YouTube is doing something kind of special where when you put time codes

In the description it will actually create those chapters for you in the progress bar of the video itself and the reason why that is interesting for this video is because this is a segment I took out of my podcast in which I

Actually unbox alive on Instagram live the modo edge+ Nick gray my guest the editor-in-chief of Android goes through the specifications and a little bit of discussion about this phone with me in this podcast segment so you can consider

Our discussion as a bit of a first impression slash hands-on video as I go through more of this phone over the next week or so before my final review goes out on PocketNow but then you might notice in the progress part that there's

A section at the end I added something a little bit special for you YouTube followers of the podcast I've made a bit of a slideshow of pictures that I have taken so far with the Moto edge+ aside from the actual specs of the

Camera I'm not going to talk too deeply about the quality of the pictures here I'm going to save all that information for the final review again it's going to be at pocket now so enjoy this segment from my podcast Tech and tee with Joshua

Vergara if you haven't followed the podcast yet do so using any of your favorite podcasting apps let's go ahead and jump in live unboxing here but I'm recording it above let me get this out of the way because it could ruin

Everything alright so we're back and it's time for to unbox the moto edge but also since I'm editing this for the YouTube version I'm gonna try something a little bit weird this is really corny and cheesy

But did you so you're following all of the moto edge stuff right now like what what things as I'm starting the unboxing what kind of stuff have you heard about it like how excited are you for a new Moto flagship it's just the fact that

They are doing a flagship is exciting in and of itself so do you want me to run through the specs for those who might not be yeah go for it you want to do that no no you come so for the for the specs of the phone it it's running

Pretty much everything else that you've been looking at for other flagship devices this year you get a six point seven inch display I believe it's an OLED display with a 90 it's refresh rate which is kind of nice

The resolution though isn't super high I believe it was full HD plus it's not a quad HD Plus display and then on the inside of course the snapdragon 865 processor which means 5g it does have sub 6 and millimeter wave support on

Verizon which is nice and a quad camera setup right with a 108 megapixel sensor which is the same one that Samsung is using on the galaxy s 20 ultra this is a wide this is actually a pretty attractive phone I'm not gonna lie like

There's a certain ice yeah I don't it looks a little bit of lopsided with the camera bump on the side though a little bucket out and that one's a thick one too look at that mm-hmm five thousand milliamp hour battery okay that I was

About to say that's one of the reasons why it's pretty thick but also and firm jack headphone jack right there mm-hmm imagine that imagine a phone can fill headphone jack a flagship with the headphone jack now everyone's just like

Oh my gosh but apparently it also motorola says it has the loudest loudspeakers that any smart phone has ever had and I appreciate that but I just have to say if it's it loud is one thing but it's gotta sound good yeah

Alright so as it turns out the unboxing experience is very simple you just get this in a charger but we can talk a little bit about I'm gonna go ahead and shift gears a little bit here we can talk about this charger it says Turbo

Power but we're spoiled now by a lot of manufacturers going above and beyond what they're charging this is an 18 watt charger it's not it's not like 3040 65 so for a five thousand milliamp hour

Battery I think that some people like us we get spoiled by fast charging Wireless fast charging one plus a pro and whatnot that's 30 watts so if you have a big battery and you need that thing topped up in a hurry not gonna happen here 18

Watts is fine don't get me wrong 18 watts is gonna take two hours to charge that thing it's gonna take a while yeah it's cuz it's still gonna take it a little bit so I don't know if turn powers really the way you should be

Saying that it was West turbot pout when did they first start there Turbo Power branding wasn't it like 2015 it was a while back yeah and they they kind of stuck to it and 18 watt is still I mean okay to be fair maybe there's some sort

Of like safety safety thing keeping it at 18 watt it's not going too far out but you know we I think we've proven at this point that you can have large aster than that yeah alright well that was a really quick unboxing but no headphones

In the Box to go along with no headphones yeah no headphones on the box that's a good point honestly if you're buying a phone for a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack you have headphones already that you want to use with it

Alright so we're gonna do the first boot up here actually and then I'll just do some b-roll for the rest of the unboxing I'm also I'm also thinking by the way weather is finally getting better here in SoCal it's getting warmer and warmer

Is actually going to get too hot by the end of the week but I'm gonna I'm gonna go out and take a few pictures with this that we can get like kind of a first look at it so I'm gonna go ahead and turn this thing on it's gonna let's say

Hello moto I don't know but I do have a couple of hot takes on that now that you reminded me but look at this thing it's it's a pretty tall device you get the curves on the side and yeah I mean I wonder I hope that the palm rejection is

Good because we've been having problems with that on other phones ooh edge+ look at that now we were just talking out there hello and it is a Verizon exclusive hole punch on the front there you could see as you can see

And oh there's a sim in here sweet okay cool 25 G you have millimeter wave at your house probably not gonna go out on the limb insane oh yeah I watched somebody did a speed test with it on millimeter wave I think it was a Verizon

And they were getting one point eight gigs down mm-hmm which is so fast I will save just sort of a hot take real quick I'm already enjoying the handling again like I said like I was telling our audience before you came on I actually

Really prioritized a good quality of life on the on the daily quality of life for me is not precariously man gymnastic King all over the place no which officially is now the that that's the name of this podcast episode

10 gymnastic in all over the place and gymnastic inge but yeah I do like this it's a taller phone than it is wide which is pretty true for quite a few flagships these days but when you look at stuff like the s20 ultra for example

Or even the 1+8 Pro which manages to still be fairly easy to use despite being somewhat wider because it has a larger display like it's it's good but this one being a little bit taller I actually kind of adore that other phones

That kind of do that like the sony xperia is and whatnot those are just like tallboys those are just tall phones hmm it's almost got like a waterfall thing going on here so like that's a very it's quite the curve it's quite

It's a lot more than what the oneplus is there's always as Nick knows there's always a ton of games that I installed on here so I take up all of the space immediately at least you get 256 gigabytes of storage there you go look

At that look at that synergy we have look at those segways take a look at this live wallpaper so as I as I move it it's is that the waves or moving with it oh it's wait it stops that's nice but it stops oh yeah it's a little bit odd I

Like it but you know the fact that it stops like times it should be wavy for an extra second or two yeah also is it weird that okay I did not pick Disney Plus but Disney Plus is on here already so isn't Verizon doing free Disney Plus

Accounts for its cuz they're the ones who are doing it okay yeah yeah so that that makes sense for it to be pre-installed and yeah just solve the same stuff and I wonder if that if this yeah there you go so the Chop Shop still

Works so chop for flashlight chopper fire camera get into the camera here and here you guys can see the first photo that oh that's a lot of modes so the ultra high res mode is here that's the 108 so you do get that so we're

Gonna go ahead and just do here you can see me live do the first selfie on on this bond always a smug face you always gotta do the smug face I my first hot take for it is I enjoy the handling but we'll see where this almost waterfall

Display lands as far as my like just Bergen a mix of it all because Moto's obviously already using I've already seen it a couple of times the edges glow when you get a notification that's cool but as

Far as the actual handling on the daily we'll see what happens over the next week or so I'm gonna take this out with me I will get some preliminary shots for my nuts see that's a date mode since the unboxing experience was so bare-bones

Like I have to add more content to that video so I'm like okay let's let's do some first camera shots
