Motorola Edge 30 Pro 5G Review

Motorola Edge 30 Pro 5G has its Pros but Motorola has done some compromises which can be a letdown for some users. Let’s go deeper and see what Motorola has offered in its Motorola Edge 30 Pro 5G smartphone.

Display

The Motorola Edge 30 Pro 5G features a 6.7-inches FHD+ OLED Display with a screen resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, 144Hz Refresh Rate, and 576Hz Touch Sampling Rate. The display further has a 20:9 aspect ratio, 88.5% Screen-to-body ratio, and has a 10-bit color panel that produces 1.07 Billion colors.

The device comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Protection on the top while the back panel is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and the frame is made out of plastic.

Here, Motorola could have included an aluminum frame as this is a flagship smartphone. Also, it should have provided a Gorilla Glass Victus Protection but they didn’t instead of that Motorola has used GG3 or GG5.

The device also has Widevine L1 support which means you can stream FHD+ content on OTT apps like Amazon Prime Videos and Netflix. The Moto Edge 30 Pro also has HDR10+ support.

Motorola Edge 30 Pro 5G Display

Now, the design of the device is also great, but it has a Side-mounted fingerprint scanner that is placed on the upper side. So, if you have small fingers then it will be difficult for you to unlock the device.

Further, Motorola should have included the In-Display Fingerprint as it has an OLED Display but they didn’t, instead of that they have gone with the Side-mounted Fingerprint. So, here, Motorola has done a cost-cutting.

Overall, we can say that the phone has a great display at the price it launched, and you will not face any problem whether you are watching videos, playing games, or performing any other daily task.

Cameras

The Motorola Edge 30 Pro features a 50MP Triple Rear Camera Setup with an LED Flash. The cameras consist of a 50MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture that has OIS (Optical Image Stabilization).

The cameras also feature a 50MP ultrawide angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture that has a 114-degree field-of-view and has a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. There is a 60MP Selfie Camera lens with f/2.2 aperture in the center punch-hole design display.

The rear cameras can record up to 8k videos at 30fps (frames per second) while the front camera can record up to 4k videos at 30fps.

There is no issue with the dynamic range and detailing of the images. As the Moto Edge 30 Pro has Optical Image Stabilization, the videos come out stable but still, the brand needs to work in the video department.

Sometimes, Motorola boosts the colors of the images. Now, most people like the boosted colors compared to natural colors but you will be disappointed if you like the natural colors.

Motorola Edge 30 Pro 5G Cameras

The 50MP primary and 50MP ultrawide sensor takes great shots with good detailing and dynamic range but there are some issues with auto-focus which can be fixed with the updates but who knows when Motorola will fix them.

The device has a 2MP depth sensor which is added just for number, so just ignore that.

Now, the device has a bigger selfie camera lens of 60MP which captures good details but it is not well optimized, hence Motorola needs to work on the selfie camera.

Overall, you will like the cameras of the device if you like saturated colors or are not a big fan of natural colors. The images of the device come out better compared to what other brands are offering at this price range.

Performance

The Moto Edge 30 Pro 5G is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 8 Gen1 Processor coupled with Adreno 730 GPU. It comes with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 Storage.

The device runs on Android 12-based My UX 3.0 skin out of the box. Motorola has promised to provide two OS updates and three years of security updates.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen1 heats up in the thermal testing, this heating issue is not the problem of smartphones, it’s a chipset issue but in real life, the phone does not heat too much even while playing high-end games.

Motorola Edge 30 Pro 5G Performance

The phone does not have ads in the UI, so you will get the Stock Android experience with some Motorola features.

Further, the device is 5G supportive and has 13 5G bands which include n1, n3, n5, n7, n8, n20, n28, n38, n40, n41, n66, n77, and n78. Overall, it is a powerful smartphone at this price.

Battery

The Motorola Edge 30 Pro packs a 4,800 mAh Battery with 68W Wired Fast Charging Support. The device also has 15W Wireless and 5W Reverse Wireless Charging Support. Motorola has included a 68W Charger inside the box of the device.

The brand claimed that this 68W charger can fully charge the device from 0 to 100 percent in approx 36 minutes.

Overall, the battery should last for a day if you are a normal user but if you are a heavy user, you will have to charge the device twice a day.

Audio

The device has a dual stereo speaker which gives you a good sound experience while streaming videos or playing games.

The Motorola Edge 30 pro also has a dual noise cancellation microphone which helps you during the calling.

It does not have a 3.5 mm Headphone Jack to plug your wired earphones or headphones, so you need to use wireless earphones or Type-C to 3.5 mm converter for plugging wired earphones.

Overall, the sound quality is good.

Conclusion: Motorola Edge 30 Pro 5G Review

The Motorola Edge 30 Pro is worth buying under the Rs 50k price point without any doubt, the phone gets the most of the things right from the display, processor, camera, fast charging, and even battery.

So, if you are looking for a powerful smartphone under Rs 50k then you can definitely consider the Motorola Edge 30 Pro. However, still, there are some compromises on the device which we have discussed earlier in the article.
