Motorola Edge 30 Pro: review in 5 points

Motorola’s latest offering in the smartphone market is the Edge 30 Pro. The highly anticipated flagship device is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, which is the fastest chipset an Android phone can have. Motorola has made the deal more delectable by lowering the price of its smartphones compared to its competitors. The Motorola Edge 30 Pro is priced at Rs 49,999. It is far below its competitors including the Samsung Galaxy 22 series, IQOO 9 Pro which have the same chipset.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 costs Rs 79,990 and the IQOO 9 Pro is priced at Rs 64,990. Both smartphones use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Apart from the chipset, the phone is equipped with powerful sets of cameras, a display OLED with a high refresh rate of 144Hz and more. Here’s the full five-point phone test.

– The Motorola Edge 30 Pro looks quite good with a glass back with a matte finish. It is curved on the sides, which makes it easier to hold. It comes in a lovely Cosmos Blue color which enhances the looks of the smartphone. In terms of display, it has a 6.7-inch OLED screen. At the back, the oval-shaped camera module does not protrude and blends perfectly with the slab. The rear panel is prone to smudges and fingerprints – it’s glass after all, even with a matte finish. Motorola provides a silicone cover inside the box.

— The Motorola Edge 30 Pro screen is good enough for watching movies and playing games. It is also buttery and smooth. Image reproduction is nearly perfect. The speakers are decent too. They don’t squeak but produce a punchy sound without getting too loud.

– Motorola Edge 30 Pro is powered by the fastest Android chipset, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. I have been using the phone for weeks now but have not experienced any lag. Apps loaded quickly and I could switch between apps very easily. Regular tasks were completed with ease and performance was quite fast. The fast performance could also be noticed in games. However, the phone got hot after 20 minutes of gaming.

— Motorola Edge 30 Pro has a 50-megapixel main camera with OIS accompanied by another 50-megapixel wide-angle camera. The wide-angle camera also surprisingly doubles as a macro camera. And then there’s the 2-megapixel depth sensor. There’s a 60-megapixel lens on the front for selfies. The macro and main camera lens performed well in daylight. Low-light images weren’t as impressive.

– The Motorola Edge 30 Pro houses a 4,800mAh battery which comes with 68W fast charging support. The phone also supports reverse charging. In just 30 minutes, the phone managed to get around 80% charge, which is extremely good, especially if you’re in a hurry and need to top up the juice faster. The phone lasted me about 14 hours a day, but if you don’t use the phone much, you could make it last even longer.
