Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra smartphone review - 120 Hz AMOLED at a bargain price

Mid-range benchmark. The Redmi K30 Ultra combines a 120 Hz OLED panel with a very powerful MediaTek Dimensity 1000+. This is accompanied by Wi-Fi 6, a pop-up camera, and stereo speakers for a street price starting at approximately 330 Euros (~$391). You can find out whether the Xiaomi phone has a catch in our review of the K30 Ultra.

Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra smartphone review

In addition to the Mi 10 Ultra, Xiaomi also introduced the Redmi K30 Ultra in August of this year on the occasion of its 10th anniversary; the K30 Ultra is expected to score points with a strong price-performance ratio. The mid-range phone currently costs around 330 Euros (~$391) in the CN version with 6 GB of RAM and has plenty of features, a MediaTek Dimensity 1000+, a quad-camera setup as well as a 120 Hz OLED panel, and a display size of 6.67 inches. The top version with 512 GB of flash memory and 8 GB of RAM costs about 410 Euros (~$486).

Even more annoying is the fact that the Redmi K30 Ultra will probably not be launched in Germany.

Case - Xiaomi smartphone without notch

Redmi K30 Ultra available in three different colors.
Redmi K30 Ultra available in three different colors.

Similar to the Poco F2 Pro, there's a 6.67-inch screen on the front that doesn't make use of a notch or a punch hole. The pop-up camera of the K30 Ultra is responsible for this. The bezels around the OLED panel are also very narrow for this price class. At a good 87%, the front of the Redmi phone has one of the most efficient screen-to-body ratios in the mid-price segment. 

The case has a high-quality appearance and is ergonomic thanks to the curved glass back. The keys for volume control and the on/off function are easily accessible and have pleasant pressure points. However, the K30 Ultra lacks an IP certification.

Connectivity - Xiaomi phone with status LED

The equipment of the Redmi smartphone includes an IR blaster, a status LED, and USB OTG. Also in the Chinese version of the K30 Ultra, video content can be viewed in HD quality on streaming platforms thanks to the presence of Widevine DRM Level 1.

After the initial setup, our test device's 128 GB of internal UFS 2.1 storage still offers 104 GB to use freely. If you need more storage space, you have to choose between the 256 GB or 512 GB version, since an expansion of the built-in data storage via SD cards isn't supported.

Software - Redmi K30 Ultra with MiUI 12

The operating system of the Redmi K30 Ultra is based on Google's Android 10; at the time of testing, the security patches are at the level of September 2020. The manufacturer has placed its in-house MiUI 12.0.12 on top of Google's version.

Since the K30 Ultra is designed for the Chinese market, the in-house MiUI software doesn't support Google services out of the box, and only English is available as system language besides Chinese. Unlike with Huawei smartphones, however, Google services can be installed easily afterwards.

Communication and GPS - K30 Ultra with fast WLAN

The K30 Ultra offers a lot when it comes to home WLAN. The latest WLAN Wi-Fi 6 standard and multi-user MIMO are supported, which ensures high and also relatively constant transfer rates in the home network. In combination with our Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router, the Xiaomi phone achieves transfer speeds of over 800 Mb/s, which is excellent for a smartphone in this price class. 

Xiaomi's communication modules support dual SIM, 5G, and Bluetooth 5.1. An NFC chip for near-field communication is also on board, but since the K30 Ultra isn't "Play Protection Certified", Google Pay is not likely to work.

The Redmi phone supports access to a total of 12 LTE bands, but it doesn't cover all the relevant LTE frequencies for Germany; the LTE band 20 and band 28 are missing.

The current position is determined using the GPS, GLONASS, and Beidou satellite networks as well as the SBAS satellite-based complementary system. Determining the current location inside buildings doesn't work with our test sample; the positioning times outdoors are remarkably long as well.

In order to be able to estimate the positioning accuracy of our test device in practice, we usually track a route with the Garmin Edge 520 and the test smartphone. Due to tracking problems, however, we can't provide these results for the K30 Ultra.

Telephone and call quality - Xiaomi smartphone with dual SIM

Xiaomi Redmi K30 Ultra smartphone review

The call quality of the K30 Ultra is at a good level. The voice of the person on the other end is clearly reproduced, and our conversation partner also describes our voice reproduction as being clear. Video calls via Skype also work well with the built-in microphone.

Cameras - K30 Ultra with quad-camera setup

Front-facing camera of the Redmi K30 Ultra
Front-facing camera of the Redmi K30 Ultra

Compared to the K30 Pro, the camera setup of the K30 Ultra has hardly changed. Xiaomi continues to use a 64 MP main camera and a 13 MP ultra wide-angle camera as well as a 5 MP lens for macro shots and a ToF sensor. A telephoto lens for zoom shots is not available, so that high-magnification photos aren't really able to convince in terms of quality. With the motorized 20 MP pop-up selfie camera, you can achieve appealing, quite color-accurate selfies when there's a lot of light. Sharpness and blur, however, are in need of improvement.

The 64 MP wide-angle module with the Sony IMX686 as image sensor has visible weaknesses in low-light conditions. But even in daylight, the image sharpness isn't optimal, especially at the edges of the pictures. Photos taken with the ultra wide-angle lens show a typical loss of detail and, above all, dynamic range. In addition, many image errors slip into the pictures taken with the K30 Ultra.

Videos in UHD are only possible at 30 frames per second. Furthermore, you can't switch between lenses when recording.

Accessories and warranty - The Redmi phone comes with a case

In the box, the K30 Ultra comes with a USB cable, a protective case, and a modular 33-watt CN power adapter.

In addition, TradingShenzhen includes an EU adapter for the sockets used in this country, but this isn't part of the standard delivery scope but is a service provided by our test device loaner.

There is a 12-month warranty. With our test device from TradingShenzhen, there's also the possibility to send the K30 Ultra to a German shipping address in case of a warranty claim.

Input devices and handling - Xiaomi smartphone with 240 Hz

A feature often underestimated in everyday use is the vibration system. The vibration motor in the K30 Ultra provides very good haptic feedback for this price segment and operates at a high-quality level.

Not only does the refresh rate (120 Hz) clearly exceed the 60 Hz mark but also the touchscreen's sampling rate (240 Hz), so that inputs on the 6.67-inch OLED panel are implemented with fast responsiveness. 

An optical fingerprint scanner is located below the display, but it doesn't always respond quickly. A biometric authentication via face recognition using the front camera unlocks the K30 Ultra reliably, but it's rather unsafe (2D).

Display - Redmi K30 Ultra with AMOLED

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The Xiaomi smartphone uses a 6.67-inch AMOLED display running at 120 Hz that has a resolution of 2400x1080 pixels. The display is also HDR10-certified. The MiraEngine in the Dimensity 1000+ ensures that SDR content is converted into HDR.

Although the OLED display achieves a high luminance of 788 cd/m² with a very homogeneous distribution, the brightness that we measured might still not be optimal for High Dynamic Range content.

In addition, we verify the brightness in our test with an evenly distributed proportion of dark to light areas (APL50). We were also able to determine a high brightness of 780 cd/m² here.

The Xiaomi smartphone uses pulse width modulation (PWM) at a frequency of 270 Hz for brightness control. We can't find a DC-dimming mode in the settings menu.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 270.3 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 270.3 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 270.3 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9668 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

In addition to a pronounced contrast, the K30 Ultra offers high color-space coverage. The panel is very well calibrated out of the box. The analysis of the spectrophotometer and the CalMAN software results in very small Delta E average deviations of 1.2 (colors) and 1.6 (grayscales) from the sRGB color space (profile: standard).

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3 ms rise
↘ 3 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 5 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5 ms rise
↘ 3 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 7 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.6 ms).

Outdoors, the K30 Ultra can be used without restrictions thanks to its high luminosity and very good contrast. The viewing-angle stability of the OLED panel is also at a pleasing level. Display contents are shown with vivid and accurate colors even when viewed from flat angles.

Performance - Redmi smartphone with Dimensity 1000+

The MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ is a 7 nm SoC that integrates four fast Cortex-A77 cores as well as four Cortex-A55 power-saving cores. The graphics unit is a Mali-G77 MP9. According to MediaTek, the APU 3.0 of the Dimensity 1000+ should be able to handle a theoretical peak performance of 4.5 TOPS through the 6 AI processors.

In our benchmark package, the K30 Ultra places itself at the front line. The Redmi phone is more at the level of a Snapdragon 855 Plus than at that of the mid-range competition. Especially in the graphics benchmarks, the K30 Ultra is almost "worlds apart" from the comparison smartphones with the Snapdragon 765G. In addition, the internal UFS storage is very fast for this price range.

Games - The Redmi K30 Ultra can game

The powerful Mali-G77 graphics unit offers enough computing power to ensure that even demanding games run smoothly. Asphalt 9 can be played at high details close to the 60 fps threshold; PUBG mobile is also rendered at a frame rate of 60 fps at low graphics settings. Older games such as Real Racing 3 can be displayed at a constant 60 fps as well. We determine our frame rates with the GameBench app.

Speakers

Speaker test: Pink Noise
Speaker test: Pink Noise

The K30 Ultra features two speakers, which is rarely found in this price range. At a maximum volume of 81 dB, the sounding bodies are sufficiently loud; however, our measurements for the Redmi phone show a less linear frequency response for the mids, and the high tones show clear drops too. Basses are not present in the sound pattern.

Battery life - Redmi K30 Ultra with 33-watt fast charging

Energy consumption

The K30 Ultra has a 4,500 mAh battery that can be charged at up to 33 watts - the necessary charger is already included in the box. Thanks to the fast-charging technology, it only takes 1 hour for the empty battery to be fully recharged.

Energy management is okay for a 6.67-inch smartphone, but power consumption under load is relatively high.

Redmi K30 Ultra verdict: Xiaomi raises the bar very high

In review: Redmi K30 Ultra. Test device provided by tradingshenzhen.com
In review: Redmi K30 Ultra. Test device provided by tradingshenzhen.com

The Redmi K30 Ultra is an exciting mid-range smartphone, but it's (so far) only designed for the Chinese market. Given the price range in which the Redmi phone moves, there are hardly any real weaknesses.

The camera modules are only at an average level, the fingerprint scanner could be faster, and the stereo speakers aren't the best. In addition, there are the usual restrictions of a Chinese import like the warranty and LTE coverage.

If you can live with these disadvantages of the mid-range phone, you get for your money an above-average display, long battery life, and fast WLAN as well as a lot of performance combined with the very appealing design of the K30 Ultra that lacks an annoying notch.

Currently, you can't get a better smartphone than the K30 Ultra for 300 to 400 Euros (~$356 to ~$475).
