Why the Motorola Edge Plus (2023) is our top pick

Motorola is great at striking a balance between performance and price, and this shows with the Motorola Edge Plus (2023). The device is powered by the critically-acclaimed Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, the same processor found in some of the most powerful flagships on the market. 

Not only can you manage multiple days on a single charge, but the phone offers a slick 165Hz 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 always offer with its devices.

The runner-up includes a stylus

Out of all the Motorola phones currently available, the Moto G Stylus 5G (2023) offers the best bang for the buck of any product that 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.

The sleek, elegant design paired with a built-in stylus and useful gestures proves you don't need to spend a lot to get the premium Motorola experience. You also get Android 13 straight out of the box, alongside a big 5,000mAh battery and the capable Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 chipset. Did we mention that it also has a headphone jack?
