The Motorola edge 30 Ultra is the new top of the range from the manufacturer, which wants to convince with an attractive price/quality ratio.
Last week, Motorola unveiled its new range of edge 30 smartphones. The manufacturer (belonging to Lenovo) which has been a little at the penne in recent years, finally seems to want to meet the expectations of buyers, but also to measure up to the competition. If the edge 30 Neo and Fusion are quite classic at correct prices, the top of the range named edge 30 ultra stands.
Motorola edge 30 Ultra: power and efficiency for a contained price
The edge 30 Ultra offers a fairly slim design with a Gorilla Glass 5 shell and aluminum edges. In the hand, the product has beautiful finishes, without fingerprints and with a slightly grainy matte feel on the back.
This model features a 6.7-inch Full HD+ HDR10+ curved pOLED display with a refresh rate of up to 144Hz. maximum of 1,250 nits, ideal even in direct sunlight. As with some competitors, the screen uses its edges to display notifications and thus alert the user even when placed on the front face.
Under the hood of this model, we find the essential Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 from Qualcomm accompanied by 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a capacity of 256 GB (UFS 3.1). Needless to say, with such a configuration in the “standards” currently for high-end models, the edge 30 Ultra has no slowdown problem or other lags. It is also compatible with the Ready for solution to extend your phone on an external screen whether on a monitor or also a television, wireless or wired. We are also entitled to WiFi 6E, USB 3.1 (Type-C) or Bluetooth 5.2.
Moreover, it is Android 12 that we find on it with a very light and quite pleasant manufacturer overlay, which is close to that of Google stock. Motorola announces two major updates, including Android 13 and 3 years of security updates.
But the interesting point about this model is undoubtedly its main 200 Mpx photo sensor with optical stabilization. The latter captures even more light by combining 16 pixels into one, thanks to Ultra Pixel technology. 4K video is possible up to 30 fps. Next to the latter, we are entitled to a second 50 Mpx sensor which allows you to take photos in ultra wide angles at 123 ° as well as in Macro. Finally, a third 12MP sensor has a 2x telephoto lens for taking portraits. In front there is a 60 Mpx selfie camera, equipped with much larger pixels to better let light in and obtain a better result. Difficult to test this part in a few minutes, but we can see that Motorola has made great efforts that deserve attention in our test. We regret on the other hand that the sensor comes out a little too much on the back of the device, which could expose it more to scratches.
Finally, to power the beast, the edge 30 Ultra has a 4,610 mAh battery compatible with TurboPower charging at 125 W and the charger is included in the box. Motorola promises a day of battery life with just 7 minutes of charging, and adds compatibility with 50W wireless charging.
In the end, this Motorola edge 30 Ultra is rather a good vintage. The manufacturer offers a copy rather in line with the expectations that one could have for a top-of-the-range model, all for an attractive price. It remains to be seen if all these good intentions are confirmed during our full test in a few days.
The Motorola edge 30 Ultra will be marketed in September at a price of 899 euros. From September 30 to November 13 inclusive, for any purchase of an edge 30 ultra, Motorola offers you a Lenovo smart clock2, in addition to a refund offer of 100 euros, thus increasing its price to 799 euros.
