Motorola Edge 30 Ultra 5G: 1 Problem

Written by Rahul Makwana


Motorola Edge 30 Ultra 5G price in India starts from Rs 59,999 for 8GB RAM + 128GB storage in India.

It comes with 200MP primary, 50MP Ultra-Wide and 12MP Telephoto while there is a 60MP selfie shooter on the front

Play the drum roll and let’s welcome the world’s 1st 200MP smartphone that will give 12MP images (pun intended)…

By the way, I didn’t notice a huge difference between 200MP images and 12.5MP images. What I’m saying is, don’t buy the smartphone, just because it has a bigger 200MP sensor when it comes to real-life usage, you won’t see a huge difference in 48MP or even 200MP sensor.

Now the problem is,

The images are coming out saturated, Motorola is using the same image processing as Vivo and OPPO which I’m not a big fan of.

Why they can’t just use natural colors, at the end, it’s Rs 60000 and it should produce close to natural images.

The saturation is not much but when compared to budget smartphones, you will see that colors are popping out.

I also get that most users love whiter and saturated images, so they can upload them on social media but I also feel that brands can also add filters for that within the camera app, so they shouldn’t just add saturated colors by default.

One More Thing, the 200MP image file size will be 40MB to 80MB which means, if you’re going to take all the images in 200MP mode then do wait for the 256GB variant otherwise, the 128GB storage will be filled very quickly.

The Ultra-wide lens doesn’t produce the same colors as the primary sensor and the details are also not the same but still, the lens will provide better images than Motorola Edge 30 Pro’s Ultra-Wide lens.

The 12MP sensor can do 2X optical zoom, I wish, Motorola has provided the 3x or even 5X optical zoom.

Again, added for marketing and it doesn’t reflect the 60MP quality in real life. I have never seen whiter images on any of Motorola Devices but looks like, this is the starting point and we will see this image processing in upcoming Moto devices.

In conclusion, the camera could have been better and Motorola needs to work on low-light photographs to justify the Rs 59,999 price tag. Nonetheless, the device has a good camera setup and it can be improved further, so we can take full advantage of the 200MP sensor.

The phone comes with a 6.67-inches 144Hz p-OLED display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and 1250 nits brightness.

1250 nits brightness will ensure that you will see everything on the screen, whether you want to watch YouTube videos or take video calls, everything will be crystal clear even under the sunlight.

On the front and rear, it has Corning Gorilla Glass 5 Protection while the frame is made from aluminum which will give you a premium feel. Now, of course, the glass is glass and it will break, so it’s better you use a good case to protect the device.

Overall, you will be more than happy with its build and display, Motorola has done a great job which does reflect in real-life usage.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is new 4nm processor from Qualcomm and they have fixed the throttling and heating issue, other than that, there is nothing new that you should know.

What I’m saying is, that whether you want to play heavy games like COD Mobile, Apex Legend, or any other, the processor won’t heat up and give you any kind of problems.

The device runs on MyUX 3.0 based on Android 12 and it will get 3 years of OS updates and 4 years of security updates.

Performance Score – AnTuTu: 1074722 (v9) – GeekBench: 4265 (v5.1) – GFXBench: 73fps (ES 3.1 onscreen)

The Stereo Speakers have Dolby Atmos support which means, you will experience the best sound while watching movies or even watching YouTube videos.

Overall, you will be more than happy with the audio quality and even with call quality too.

The device has a 4,610mAh battery that supports 128W fast wired and 50 Wireless Charging.

The battery will last for about a day with normal usage, you will end up with a 10% battery at around 6 PM but if you’re a mixed user then expect to charge this device twice a day.

Overall, if you’re looking for a smartphone under Rs 60000 and wanted a stock Android experience, excellent 144Hz pOLED panel, superfast performance, solid battery life, good-looking design and if you can compromise a bit on the camera side of things then do consider the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra.
