Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Motorola Edge S30 introduced a company Motorola in December 2021. It has Android version 11, which, unfortunately, it will not be possible to update, because the manufacturer did not take care of it. This new smartphone has also received support for high-speed 5G networks so that you can watch very high-quality 4K or even 8K videos on YouTube, play online games and not feel any inconvenience associated with the slow speed of mobile Internet.

Well, what can I say, Motorola Edge S30 is a smartphone of 2021 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Middle class smartphones from $300 to $400”.

Screen, body and battery

Good big 6.8-inch screen, made by technology IPS LCD with screen refresh rate 144 Hz (see all smartphones with screens 144 Hz in the catalog) installed in the smartphone Motorola Edge S30.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Motorola Edge S30 the thickness of the case is 8.9 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body. In addition, the screen area in relation to the body area affects the positive feeling of the phone in the hands. This model has a screen area of 80% to 90% of the body area (watch all smartphones with a screen from edge to edge). And one more thing, the screen area is increased thanks to the upper cutout above it, while the body area remains unchanged. Motorola Edge S30 received a cutout in the form of a small hole at the top of the screen for a selfie camera and multiple sensors. Check out detailed photos of this smartphone for a better understanding of how it looks in real life.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At Motorola Edge S30 installed battery for 5 000 mAh, which is very, very good, this battery will last for a long time.

Of the features of the case and form factor, it is worth noting protection against ingress of water and dust inside the body. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

An excellent camera with multiple lenses (108 MP Wide + 13 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor) was received by Motorola Edge S30. And now you can definitely stand out with your photos among your friends. At least, thanks to the fact that two or more cameras will help you shoot excellent portraits with the Bokeh effect, and take photos with zooming, without much loss in image quality. And on the front of the smartphone we see a camera with one lens: 16 MP Wide. This is a very good camera to take selfie. You will want to do them all the time and publish to the Instagram :)

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Motorola Edge S30 received 8-core processor Snapdragon 888+ 5G (5 nm). The amount of RAM in it is 6 GB or 12 GB, depending on which option you choose.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 128/256 GB. This is again different versions of your choice. The more memory, the more expensive the version of the smartphone. If you want to buy this smartphone, then we recommend taking the maximum option for the amount of internal memory, because this model does not support memory cards.

Price for Motorola Edge S30: buy or not to buy?

So this is Motorola Edge S30 after the official announcement. This new product hit the segment just above the average price of smartphones.

Buy Motorola Edge S30 you can after the beginning of official sales, which start in  December 2021. And now the price from the manufacturer is known — it′s $320 without taxes and fees. The price-to-feature ratio of this smartphone is not bad, because there is is just a huge screen, and the camera is sooooo cool, and the frontcamera is also very cool.

If you are looking for a good current smartphone, which is now on sale, then visit the page DROID smartphones in our catalog. There we select only the best models from different price segments. You will have plenty to choose from!
