In this 21st century of rapid technological advancement, smartphones are always in competition with each other to lead the market ahead. Some grow, enduring the various resistances, while others perish. Most of you who are quite familiar with the name " Motorola" might be aware of its fame and the stronghold of the brand. Being the ones to bring flip phones decades ago, they advanced to bring gaming and budget phones. But looking at the dynamic name of the market and the demands of Gen Z, they finally responded with the reveal of their latest smartphone, the Edge 30 Ultra. This is the phone almost everyone has been talking about recently, as there had been rumours of a 200MP camera, but it turned out to be true. Let's find out through this article some interesting and amazing details about the phone and try to answer this question: "Should we buy one?"
There is only one variant right now available for the Indian market. At Rs 72,150, it comes with a powerful 12GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage with a guaranteed 1-year manufacturing warranty.
The phone comes with three colour options to choose from; interstellar black, starlight white, but as it was recently launched, the 12GB variant only comes in interstellar black.
After a long waiting period, the phone is finally launched. The first thing that will grab your attention is the "smooth curved edges" completely made of glass, complementing the sandblasted aluminium body. The lines are perfectly contoured, magnifying the "infinity edge" design. For those who are interested in knowing minute details, the phone measures 161.7673.508.93(height, width, thickness) and is very light, weighing around 198.5 grams. The grip feels strong and doesn’t allow the phone to slip, although being made of glass ensures everything you touch your phone, your sticky finger prints get on the glass behind. The phone has a premium feel and finish to it, which is definitely appealing to look at.
The display has a 6.67-inch p-OLED FHD+ resolution and a smooth 144Hz refresh rate that can be manually adjusted to meet your needs. Blacks, blues, and reds look absolutely awesome and stunning, and even at a 120Hz refresh rate, it's very hard to complain about any decrease in details. Although taking the setting to the higher levels might cause an excess loss of battery life, a minimal setting is recommended.
What we all wanted to know, after all the market gimmicks, is the ultimate truth about the new triple camera setup. On the rear, the device brings a new 200MP as the primary camera with an f/1.9 aperture, a 50MP to take care of those ultra-wide and nano clicks with an f/2.2 aperture, and a telephoto portrait lens with 12MP (f/1.9). In the front, it comes with a 60MP selfie camera with an f/2.2 aperture. The camera settings have been advanced with a new "Ultra Pixel Technology" that doesn’t let go of any details in the shot and an "optical image stabilization" that doesn’t let any sudden disturbance destroy the quality of your capture. The camera, though it looks heavier, perfectly blends with the glass body of the phone.
This is unquestionably a gamer's paradise, powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 dual octa-core processors and available in 8GB, 12GB, and 16GB of RAM with 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of internal storage. The company’s intent to slowly attract gamers has been magnified. It runs on the latest Android 12, which lets you, multi-task seamlessly in the blink of an eye. From browsing social media content to making pdfs or presentations to playing games online, nothing can slow down the performance of this phone. Because the phone was just released, extracting more usability will take some time, but so far, the phone has performed admirably.
A massive 4610mAh battery takes care of the life of the phone, ensuring its longevity. The brand claims to charge 0-50% in just 9 minutes and a full charge from 0-100% within 20 minutes, which will be done by a 125W superfast charger. Another interesting feature, which comes with a blessing, is its wireless charging that charges the device at 50W and counter charges other devices at 10W. Other connectivity options
The phones come with a dual sim tray (both supporting only Nano-SIM). It also comes with NFC, WIFI-direct, and the latest Bluetooth version v5.20, which supports only USB-TYPE C and is 3G, 4G, and 5G compatible. It brings some interesting sensors to the table too, like an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, compass, and magnetometer, along with other salient features like an inbuilt display finger print sensor and face unlock technology.
With the price definitely on the budget side as it’s a flagship device, it's too hard not to consider or consider buying it. But, hey, the phone has just been released, and we can be excited enough to use it on a daily basis for a while before passing judgment. The numbers look good on paper and also in reality.
