After using the motorola edge, which one of its features will you not be able to live without?

Honestly, one of the features I really like is the ability to open and then switch cameras using just a hand gesture. It’s a subtle convenience, but one I found myself continuing to use often. With such a large screen, it can be a bit of a thing to open the camera if I can’t use both hands. Simply twisting the phone in my hand to quickly pop open the camera is clutch if my dog is being extra adorable. Those moments pass quickly–I have to be quick too!

In what ways has the motorola edge switched up your creative process?

I can’t decide if I like the camera more, or the screen. The camera is great to be able to help with my footwork when practicing new tricks. I like being able to just quickly set up a shot and roll video during a session, then easily review it afterward, but the large screen makes reviewing my progress easier.

What’s one impressive feature of the motorola edge that most people might overlook?

I’m fascinated by the 108 Megapixel photo mode! There’s some really interesting machine-learning going on behind the scenes of this photo that are able to create incredibly high-resolution photos. It’s nuts to be able to take a wide photo and be able to crop without losing detail. I feel like the phone is just rendering reality when I point it at something.

How has the motorola edge has changed your day-to-day routine?

I try to get as many trick sessions in throughout the week as I can, so sometimes I have to fit it in during inconvenient times. Being able to automatically have my footage back up to my Google Drive account so I can access it later on my computer means I’m not stuck worrying about data transfer.

Based on your overall experience, what’s one word you’d use to describe the motorola edge?

Sleek.

After using the motorola edge, which one of its features will you not be able to live without?

The Google search feature of "Search What You See" is pretty amazing. Being able to hold up your camera phone and let the Google lens find results of what it is you’re looking at or trying to find on the web is insane!

In what ways has the motorola edge switched up your creative process?

I think having so many unique camera features has really opened up my creative process on a daily basis. There are a lot of cool features within the camera controls that would have either taken me hours in the past to replicate or just weren’t even possible with other phones. It has definitely changed the way I shoot content.

What’s one impressive feature of the motorola edge that most people might overlook?

I think the dual camera record feature is pretty unique. Being able to record yourself or what's in front of you while simultaneously filming your reaction is amazing—I've never seen it done before. That features opens up a lot of possibilities for social media content.

How has the motorola edge has changed your day-to-day routine?

As a creative, high-quality camera functions and tools are so important. The seemingly endless camera features really open up the creative possibilities on a day-to-day basis when I'm shooting footage on the go.

Based on your overall experience, what’s one word you’d use to positively describe the motorola edge?

Crispy!
