Change geometry of graphic in an featureLayer and show the change in the Map

It seems a very basicaly problem but I couldn't find a solution for that. What I want:

1: l have a map with a single FeatureLayer with point features .

2: I like to drag a single, selected point to a new position in the map. I just want to move the selected point. It must be very simple for the user. So no additional tools. Just grab the point and move it. -> that's the Problem.

3. The user will later add some attribute information and attachments and then the new position with all the attributes will be saved with applyEdits to the service.

I don't understand how to manipulate the feature/graphic directly in the map without using apply edits.

I think this schould be simple and basic task.
