Reviews for the Motorola Edge 30

Motorola Edge 30 First Impressions : Sleek and Powerful
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Edge 30 has a 4,020mAh battery which is a lower capacity than average for smartphones these days. This was a conscious choice to make the phone this slim and light. However, Motorola is confident of its ability to deliver good battery life. It also comes with a 33W charger in the box. The Motorola Edge 30 runs Android 12 with Motorola's My UX customisations. Motorola does promise Android 13 and Android 14 updates for the Edge 30, along with three years of security updates. The UI is clean and easy to use. There are very few preinstalled third-party apps, all of which can be uninstalled. I think the Motorola Edge 30 is a stylish phone, and it will certainly attract buyers who are looking for something that's slim and light. It also has some interesting features and powerful hardware, potentially making it quite competitive in its segment. The Edge 30 will face stiff competition from the likes of Xiaomi, Realme, and OnePlus. I will be putting the Motorola Edge 30 to the test, so stay tuned to Gadgets360 for the full review, coming soon.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.

Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.

85.11%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
