Motorola Edge 30 Review: What’s special about this upper midrange phone?

Motorola has introduced Edge 30, a streamlined version of Edge 30 Pro. The gadget is the successor to the Edge 20, which was previously released. The smartphone has an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 5G processor, a Triple Rear Camera Setup, and a selfie camera lens embedded in the display’s punch-hole design. Let’s examine the whole list of features, characteristics, and costs of the Motorola Edge 30.

Key Features of Motorola Edge 30


Motorola has opted to diversify its Edge collection after a few years of just offering large mid-range smartphones. The new Edge 30 is smaller than its predecessor, which is excellent news given that last year’s gadget was rather large and this year’s Edge 30 Pro is also quite large.

Due to this design decision, the Motorola Edge 30 is lighter and feels much more refined, beautiful, and small, despite its attractive appearance and tendency to collect fingerprints. Therefore, you will like the way it feels in your palm, and its simplistic and flat design makes it very traditional, even square.

Be cautious, though, since it slips like a wet fish and seems to have its own will and move of its own while resting on shiny and smooth surfaces. If you want ultra-thin and tiny phones, however, the Motorola Edge 30 is the model for you since it is without a doubt one of the thinnest smartphones available.


The Motorola Edge 30 5G has a 6.50-inch, 144Hz pOLED display with a 1080 x 2400-pixel resolution. The front is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, whilst the back and frame are composed of plastic.

The gadget has a thickness of 6.8 mm, so if you want thin devices, this is the one for you. You will also appreciate the design and weight balance, as the device weighs just 155 grams.

In addition, Motorola has included Widevine L1 compatibility, allowing you to stream FHD+ video on all OTT platforms. While its brightness is 500 nits, it is pickable.

Motorola should have included 1000 nits of brightness despite the fact that the screen is viewable outdoors and the brightness is quite low.

Motorola has introduced an in-display fingerprint sensor for the first time in the mid-priced sector, and it works flawlessly.


A 50MP main sensor with f/1.8 aperture and OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), a 50MP ultrawide angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture are housed in a square module with an LED flash on the Motorola Edge 30 5G.

In the punch-hole display is a 32 MP Selfie Camera Sensor with an aperture of f/2.4. Both the front and back cameras can capture 4K video at 30 frames per second.

As the smartphone supports OIS, the movies are steady, but Motorola still has room for improvement in the video sector.

There are no problems with the dynamic range or the level of detail in the photographs. Occasionally, it attempts to enhance the colours.

The 50MP main and 50MP ultrawide sensors provide images with excellent resolution and dynamic range. Also, disregard the 2MP depth sensor since it serves no use.

Due to the larger size of this sensor, the details are shown nicely. Motorola uses the ultra-wide sensor as a macro sensor as well, so if you are a macro photographer, you will be ecstatic with its 50MP ultrawide sensor.

Additionally, the 32MP front-facing camera captures high-quality images without any difficulties.

Overall, the smartphone features a fantastic camera, which you will like if you favour vibrant colours. However, the device’s photos are superior to those offered by competing companies in this price range.


The gadget is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ processor and an Adreno 642L graphics processing unit. It has as much as 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 Storage.

The gadget comes with the Android 12 operating system. Motorola has also pledged to give OS upgrades for 2 years and security patches for 3 years. The Snapdragon 778G+ is the overclocked variant of the Snapdragon 778G and offers an excellent battery life. Motorola should have added a Snapdragon 870 since its CPU and GPU are superior.

The Edge 30 5G’s user interface is ad-free, so you will enjoy Stock Android with some Motorola-specific features. Overall, the gadget will provide potent performance, and you will encounter no problems.


The Motorola Edge 30 has a 4020mah with support for 33W quick charging. Motorola included a 33W Charger in the packaging.

The device’s battery is very tiny, and Motorola should have added a 5,000 mAh battery, but they did not, resulting in the world’s thinnest phone. The pricing is also cheaper than those of competing brands.

Overall, the battery life is excellent due to the CPU, but you must charge the smartphone twice each day.

Price of Motorola Edge 30

The Motorola Edge 30 has not been officially released in Bangladesh yet. In the UK, the phone has been released with 8GB RAM with 128GB storage at GBP 379.99 or BDT 40391. The conversion rate here is 1 GBP = 106.30 BDT. However, due to tax and other issues this price may change after official release in Bangladesh.


At this pricing, the Motorola Edge 30 seems to be one of the most sturdy, fascinating, and well-constructed phones in its category. It boasts a superlative 144Hz 10-bit AMOLED display, a highly powerful and, at the same time, extremely thrifty CPU in terms of consumption and temperature, a good autonomy, and a set of cameras that is not just adequate but excellent.

The two 50MP sensors improve the performance of both rear cameras, while the 32MP front-facing camera is also a notable upgrade. It is 5G, offers many connection choices, and Wi-Fi 6E, making it future-proof. Additionally, they have extended support a little compared to prior years, so you will be able to use the Motorola Edge 30 for the next three years.
