Why the Motorola Edge (2022) is our top pick

Motorola is great at striking a balance between performance and price, and this shows with the Motorola Edge (2022). The device is powered by a mid-range MediaTek Dimensity 1050 chipset, which doesn't sound very impressive, but it manages to provide a great experience while keeping costs down.

Not only can you manage multiple days on a single charge, but the phone offers a slick 144Hz OLED display and a speedy fingerprint sensor. The best part is that Motorola is committing to three major OS upgrades and four years of updates, something the company doesn't typically offer with its devices.

If you can find it at a discount, the Motorola Edge (2022) is a must-buy.

The Moto G Stylus 5G (2022) delivers incredible value

Out of all the Motorola phones currently available, the Moto G Stylus 5G (2022) shines as the best overall package the company has to offer. The balance of modern specs, features, and price are darn-near perfect given how affordable the phone is, making it a clear winner in our eyes, particularly among other budget Android phones.

While Motorola released two stylus-laden phones this year, only one of them comes with 5G. Not only that, but the Snapdragon 695 chipset provides a surprising amount of performance, while ensuring the phone will last you a full two days on a charge. And that's with the 120Hz display on full blast. It also has a decent camera setup with a 50MP camera, up to 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of expandable storage.

Did we mention it has NFC? It has NFC.
