After a long time, Motorola is now once again offering a high-end smartphone, which shines with a versatile 200 MP camera, strong runtimes and a bright 144 Hz OLED. However, there are also a few equipment gaps. Read the following summary of our review to find out more.

The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra has a 6.67-inch POLED panel with enhanced Full HD resolution and a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz. The processor is a fast Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, accompanied by a generous 12 GB of RAM. A nominal 256 GB is available for data storage; microSD support is not available. The display in particular, with its high brightness reserves, performs well under testing. However, this is not an LTPO panel, so the refresh rate only switches between 60, 90 and 120 Hz in automatic mode. 144 Hz can only be used when if it is permanently activated. 

The triple camera uses a high-resolution 200 MP sensor from Samsung for the first time, which impresses with good photos, but also shows a few aberrations at full resolution. In addition, a high-resolution ultra-wide-angle lens is available, which also has a macro option. This is rounded off by 2x optical magnification, which unfortunately lacks optical image stabilization. All in all, Motorola offers a convincing combination that does not have to be shy in terms of videography. 

Another highlight is the Edge 30 Ultra's long battery runtimes, which will easily get its user through the day. If more power is required, the smartphone can be recharged within a few minutes with 125 watts, and this is also possible wirelessly with up to 50 watts. 

The IP certification has been found wanting because it is not waterproof (as with IP52). eSIM is also missing. Motorola promises update support in the form of three major updates and four years of security patches. While this is not as much as Samsung or Google, it is still a comparatively long period of support. 

The Edge 30 Ultra can be purchased directly from Motorola's official website. First, select your location, and type in Edge 30 Ultra in the search bar to find out the prices relevant to your location.
