Motorola Edge 50 Fusion Specifications And Review 2024

Motorola Edge 50 Fusion: Motorola Edge 50 Fusion has launched in India at 23,000 Rs. but with bank discounts, you can get it for 21000 Rs. Actually, the main highlight of this phone is definitely its cameras. To begin with, this phone looks and feels very premium with its sleek design and vegan leather bag.

Design & Display

The in-hand feel is also very good and the phone is quite lightweight even though it packs a 5000 mAh battery. On the right, you get volume lockers, a power button, and a mic. At the top there’s a mic with Dolby Atmos branding and on the bottom, you get a dual sim slot, a mic, a Type C 2.0 port, and a speaker grill. The frame is plastic, there’s no headphone jack and you don’t get an expandable storage option as well, but you do get an IP68 rating which is still very rare in this segment.

By the way, it is the marshmallow blue color but there are two more options as well. You also get this color-matching case that matches well with the curved screen. And speaking of the curves let’s talk about the stunning display. It’s a 6.67-inch curved pOLED panel with 144Hz refresh rate and 1200 Nits of brightness in high brightness mode. We couldn’t test the peak brightness though because the phone currently doesn’t support HDR on YouTube or Netflix but let’s hope Moto rolls an update to fix this soon. Apart from that the display is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and with the smart water touch feature, you can use it even when the screen is wet or in-rains. We’ve been seeing this feature in a lot of phones this year and it’s indeed quite practical and useful.

Lastly, the in-display fingerprint scanner is placed at the bottom and works well. I know you must be wondering about accidental touches because this is the curved display but I am happy to report that I did not come across any such issue on this phone. The multimedia experience on this phone could have been better with HDR but other than that it’s quite good as the stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support get quite loud and don’t crackle even at Max volume. Now if you are curious about haptics I think it could have been better.

Camera & Processor

On to the cameras now. The camera hardware on this phone is quite capable with the 50 MP Sony LYT 700 C sensor as the main camera with OIS, a 13 MP ultra-wide camera with autofocus a 32 MP selfie camera. Before I get to the camera samples must tell you that this phone takes some perfect photos and videos. All the cameras can shoot 4K 30 FPS videos and you can also switch lenses while recording. In the daytime, the photos turn out very well with natural colours and good details and the HDR is also on point even when the sunlight is harsh.

The ultra-wide camera also takes some very good photos but you do lose some details and their slight colour shift compared to the main camera. In the nighttime camera definitely surprised me. It takes some perfect photos with good details and on-point colour. In portraits, you get an excellent bokeh but the skin tones are beautified which some people prefer. Lastly, when it comes to selfies they have exquisite details with natural skin tones. 

Software Experience

Let’s talk about the performance now. The Edge 50 Fusion packs a Snapdragon 7S Gen 2 processor with up to 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage. By the way, this is the base variant. See this isn’t the most powerful processor and doesn’t really stand out against the competition but in benchmarks the phone performs decent be it in Antutu or Geek Bench. In 3D Mark, the stability is quite good, and in CPU throttling, it doesn’t go below 83%of its peak performance even after 60 minutes 100 threads test, which is quite good.

I noticed that the phone doesn’t heat up at all in any of the benches and the maximum temperature I saw was just 39 degrees. It could be because of the Hyper Crystal Graphite Cooling System they implemented on this phone or probably because the processor is not the most demanding. Apart from the benchmarks I also did some gaming on it. In BGMI these are the game settings that support and the gameplay was quite smooth at 60FPS. In COD Mobile, again there’s no high FPS support but the gameplay was consistently smooth.

In Genshin Impact the phone supports the highest plus 60FPSbut we got an FPS of 40 to 44and the gameplay was quite smooth which is actually good for a phone under 25K. We also tried COD Warzone but it was practically unplayable and that’s probably because the game is still not optimized. Lastly, in Grid Auto Sport you don’t get the graphics of the performance mode option and the gameplay was stuck at 30 FPS. See, this phone is not meant for gaming but it performs really well in day-to-day tasks. When it comes to the software update this phone comes with HelloUI based on Android 14 and we’ll get three years of OS updates and four years of security patches, and before you say we asked it and Moto has stated that they will give timely updates this time.

In terms of UI, there are a few bloatware that you can uninstall and we also saw ads in their weather app but other than that it’s quite clean. HelloUI also brings some new features such as the Moto Unplug app, AI wallpapers, and even a customizable lock screen. The classic Moto gestures are still present along with Moto Ready For support with Windows laptop. The refreshed UI is very well optimized now with smooth animations and the RAM management is also very good.

Battery Charging And Connectivity

In terms of battery, this phone packs a 5000mAh battery with a 68W PD charger in the box. The battery life on this phone is unbelievable. We got an SOT of 6.5 hours on medium usage with 30% battery still remaining and the phone goes from 14 to 100% in just 50 minutes. This phone will easily last you a day even with heavy usage. Lastly, in terms of connectivity, you get Bluetooth 5.2, WiFi 6, 15 5G bands, and NFC but the type C port is still USB 2.0.

Overall the Edge 50 Fusion is a very good phone. It brings a premium design with an IP68 rating, the cleanest software experience with very good software support, very good cameras, and exceptionally good battery life. Of course, the performance is not the best but it can handle everyday tasks quite easily.

At 21,000 Rs. this phone does make sense. If you guys have any further questions about this phone, ask us in the comments and we’ll answer them. Thank you for watching and I’ll see you at the next one.
