It’s an amazing display with OLED display technology, make it brighter and more power efferent. It’s also 6.7inches so that make its gaming experience on another level because it also support the 144Hz refresh rate. Its 6.7inches and have 393 PPI density. It’s not (A1) display among the other flagship smartphones but, it’s good when you look at the price of this smartphone.

CPU Octa-core (1×2.99 GHz Kryo 680 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 680 & 4×1.80 GHz Kryo 680)
GPU Adreno 660

Now let’s talk about the platform. They are using the android 11 with MYUI 2.0. They have their own custom operating system. They are using the Snapdragon 888+ chipset so, that is a plus point for Motorola users. The snapdragon 888 plus is the powerful chipset for this phone with a 144hz refresh rate this processor makes the using experience and gaming experience to another next level. It also comes with a bunch of gaming boosters inside this MYUi. This MYUI makes the performance smoother and more efficient.

Camera

The Motorola edge s30 uses the triple camera setup.

The main is 50 MP, f/1.9, (wide), 1/1.55″, 1.0µm, Dual Pixel PDAF, optical image stabilization). Which is very good at capturing good details and high dynamic range with advanced image processing software.

The second one is 50 MP, f/2.2, 114˚ (ultra wide), and 0.64µm. Which is wide enough to capture more detail and more angle view.

The third one is 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth). This sensor is used for fast focus in night and in harsh daylight.

Now let’s talk about its video support. The Motorola Edge S30 supports [email protected], [email protected]/60/120/240fps, [email protected], 10-bit HDR10+, I’m a little disappointed to see that, the video is only kept on 4k at 30 fps there’s no 8k and no 4k at 60fps, also 1080p up to 240fps. The video can record in 10 bit HDR10 PLUS content because of the snapdragon 888 plus chipset. The video is sharp and contains more details because of the 50MP sensor. They are using the IMX 766 for the main lens and the Sony GN1 in the ultra-wide lens and the 2mp is a depth sensor.



Selfie

Single 16 MP, f/2.2, (wide), 1.0µm
Features HDR
Video [email protected]

Now let’s talk about the selfie camera. They are using a single punch whole camera with a 60 MP, f/2.2 that features HDR. The video support is kept on 4k at 30fps and 1080p at 120fps. Its amazing sensor with big resolution pictures and videos, which contains high details, high dynamic range. This camera have many features in their MYUI. It’s also f/2.2 which makes it more bright-looking photos in the nighttime. The snapdragon 888 + has more image processing power to remove the grain and noise from pictures.

Sound

Loudspeaker Yes
3.5mm jack No

Now let’s talk about the sound. The Motorola Edge S30 is flagship phone so, there is no 3.5 millimeter headphone jack but they are using the stereo speakers which sounds great and have more bass. Watching content on this phone with these speakers is amazing as well as gaming.

Connectivity

WLAN Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/6e, dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspot
Bluetooth 5.2, A2DP, LE
GPS Yes, with A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BDS
NFC No
Radio No
USB USB Type-C 3.1

They are using the WiFi 6 with the Bluetooth version of 5.2 but there is also an NFC port and also have no radio. They are also using the usb type c generation 3.1 so that means you have the better charging speed.


Fingerprint

Sensors Fingerprint (side-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass

Ready For support

They are providing the side mounted fingerprint sensor. I always recommend the side mounted fingerprint sensor over the in display fingerprint sensor because, it’s faster and more efficient than in display fingerprint sensor. It’s also located in the home button so, that make it more easily to use.

Battery

Type Li-Po 5000 mAh, non-removable
Charging Fast charging 33W
Price About 420 EUR

They are giving the 5000Mah battery with a fast charging of 33 watts, but you guys will shock about its price because, it’s only 420 euros I mean really, the snapdragon 888 plus and the 144 hertz refresh rate, OLED screen, FULL HD plus and only 420 euros. The Motorola Edge S30 really worth the price. If you guys are planning on buying a smartphone with rich features, then it’s a good package for you guys.


So this was my complete review and complete spec sheet of this Motorola Edge S30. If you guys learned something new then also check out my other review on smartphone.
