Reviews for the Motorola Moto G30

77.6% Motorola Moto G30 Review: 90-Hz smartphone with an IP certification and NFC for less than 180 Euros | Notebookcheck
The Moto G30 has an impressive specifications sheet. The low-priced mid-range smartphone features a 90-Hz screen, a quad-camera system, a 3.5-mm audio jack and a dual-SIM card slot that also supports microSD cards. Read our extensive review to learn about the weaknesses of the Motorola Moto G30.
Moto G30 Review: Cutting the right corners
Source: The Times of India English
For a budget smartphone, the Moto G30 provides great value at the current price of ₹10,999. The cameras take good photos, while the phone can handle daily tasks well, with barely any lag or stutters. Since this is a budget phone, it will eventually wear down with time if you keep using it for heavy tasks, which is worth keeping in mind while considering this device.

70% Moto G30 review: stock Android and 90Hz screen on a budget
Source: 91mobiles English
The Moto G30 is a capable phone, and has all the traits of a worthy budget-focused smartphone. It offers a decent set of cameras, reasonable performance, good battery like, clean software, and an impressive 90Hz screen. The niggles include slow shutter times with the night mode, a missing dedicated slot for the microSD card, and the heavy weight. The recently-released Redmi Note 10 can offer better features such as a Super AMOLED panel, a better quad-camera setup, exquisite design, faster charging speeds, an IR blaster, superior performance, and a dedicated microSD card slot, all of which is available for a price of Rs 11,999. However, the 90Hz refresh rate and the cleaner software makes the Moto G30 worth a closer look.

The Moto G30 is not the Moto G from late 2013, which you could recommend as the universal best option for a full-featured smartphone on a budget. The Moto G gradually evolved from that one phone to an entire lineup, and none of the lineup members today is the no-brainer purchase that the original was.

80% Motorola Moto G30 review: Worth every penny?
Source: India Today English
Motorola is a go-to brand if you are looking for a budget device, more so because of its clean Android experience. At just Rs 10,999, it comes with an impressive camera setup and an extremely good processor if you want to perform basic tasks. The battery life in the Moto G30 is also pretty decent, given its price tag. So that makes it a suitable device in the budget category.

80% Motorola Moto G30 Review: Safe All-Rounder
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Motorola has priced the Moto G10 Power and the Moto G30 quite close to each other, and choosing between them is not all that easy. The Moto G30 offers slightly better performance than the Moto G10 Power, but has a smaller battery. It still isn't the fastest in this price range, and if you are looking specifically for performance, the Realme Narzo 30A (Review) offers better. If you don't mind spending a little extra, the new Redmi Note 10 (Review) offers much better value for your money.

85% Motorola Moto G30 review

I think it is. It’s a very solid midranger. It runs OK so long as you are not expecting it to handle heavy apps or serious multi-tasking and its camera can take a few good shots (but not videos). It can easily last you a day and it’s a solid device for those that just want a smartphone to stay connected, without going too fancy with it.

The Moto G30 is good for its price, and certainly beats out its G10 sibling, as a fine all-rounder. Save for its stellar battery performance there are no stand-out aspects to the phone though, and depending on what you’re looking for, another handset might offer more.

Chunky, chinny, and notch-heavy, even with its clunky design, the Moto G30 is still a cracking low-cost smartphone for a certain type of user. Sitting alongside the Moto G9 Power and offering a slightly smaller, significantly more iridescent alternative with virtually identical innards — the fact it costs less and offers more is its saving grace.

80% Motorola Moto G30 review: Is this one Moto too many?
Source: Expert Reviews English
All in all, the G30 is yet another solid budget phone from Motorola, and well priced at £160. But the company’s myriad budget options raise a dilemma here. While there are undoubtedly improvements over the G9 Play, does the addition of a 90Hz screen, an ultra-wide camera lens and double the storage (when both have microSD card support) change anything for most people?

Moto G30 review: Low-price but all high praise?
Source: Pocket Lint English
Although there's a share of criticism - three of the four cameras are poor, the Pastel Sky finish is questionable - in the interests of context there's little else out there at this price point that can even compete. So long as your expectations are in check then the Moto G30 is one of the best budget phones around.

Packs in a lot for anyone on a tight budget, even if not every feature adds a lot of value. The Moto G30 is ultra-affordable and its performance won't frustrate, but if you can stretch just a little further, rivals offer an even slicker experience.

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 662: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 260 cores (four fast 2 GHz Cortex-A73 cores in a cluster and two power saving 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores) and a rather slow Adreno 610 GPU. Manufactured in a 11 nm LPP process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.50":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.197 kg:

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.


75.22%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
