Price inflation, even at Motorola

Moreover, the Motorola Edge Plus ape this inflationary competition by opting for a very ambitious price. If across the Atlantic the phone will be sold at 999 dollars, positioning it in front of an OnePlus 8 Pro, the amount requested by Motorola in Europe breaks the ceiling: 1299 $. What do you get for this price? A very nice technical sheet. And it’s been a long time since Motorola had not shown a little ambition in this point of view, preferring to opt with the Moto Z for less expensive proposals (with some concessions necessary).
