Comparison review

The Galaxy S21 Ultra has a general score of 11.67, which is just a bit better than Motorola edge's overall score of 11.23. Galaxy S21 Ultra's body is heavier but a little thinner than Motorola edge, and both were released only a few months apart. Both devices we are comparing work with Android operating system, but the Galaxy S21 Ultra has a newer 11 version and Motorola edge has Android 10, giving a couple nice extra features.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra has a lot better display than Motorola edge, because it has a better 1440 x 3200 pixels resolution, a bit larger screen and a higher pixel density. Galaxy S21 Ultra features a little faster processing unit than Motorola edge, and although they both have a Octa-Core processor, the Galaxy S21 Ultra also has 6 GB more RAM.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra shoots better photographs and videos than Motorola edge, and although they both have a same size camera aperture, the Galaxy S21 Ultra also has a much better 7680x4320 video quality, a lot bigger back camera sensor providing a way higher image quality and a much more megapixels back-facing camera.

Motorola edge has a much greater storage for applications, games, photos and videos than Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, because it has 128 GB more internal storage capacity and a SD memory slot that admits up to 1000 GB. Motorola edge's battery life is very similar to the Galaxy S21 Ultra one, although the Motorola edge has 4500mAh of battery capacity.

Although Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is a better device, it costs a lot more than the Motorola edge, and it doesn't have such a good price and quality relation as Motorola edge. If you want to save a few dollars, you can buy Motorola edge, giving up a couple features, but you will get the most with your money.
