Nicholas Symmes review: Motorola G30 – Chile

This week I reviewed Motorola G30, a team that I found quite interesting due to its attributes. Let’s start with its design, which despite being made of plastic on the back, looks quite premium, with a matte design that you will like. Point in favor here is that the classic problem of the marked fingers is gone, since being opaque and not glass, you will not have that type of inconvenience.

Within the functions, we have the entry of the classic connector for 3.5mm headphonea slot to incorporate a micro SD card to expand the storage, a fingerprint scanner on the back, which is very comfortable, and already the classic google assistant button, which is like Siri either Bixby at the terminal.

On the screen, the G30 comes with a 90Hz refresh rate display, delivering a smoother and faster experience. In fact, the screen, which is a panel of 6.5-inch IPS-LCD with resolution HD+ (1600 x 720 pixels)occupies almost the entire front, and has a discreet drop-shaped notch where the front camera comes from.

As for the computer’s processor, we found the Snapdragon 662a chipset with a Kryo 260 octa-core CPU running to 2GHz Y 1.8GHz supported on a Adreno 610 GPU. Also, you must add the 4GB RAMwhich help a lot when performing everyday tasks with your phone.

And of course, we have Android 11 with Moto’s cool gestures, which allow things like capture the screen with three fingers, activate the flashlight by shaking the phone or silence it by simply picking it up. (I have to admit, I love these functions.)

I would also add as a key item, its 5,000mah, delivering an autonomy of a whole day with intense use, adding that additional plus to the phone. In fact, while using it, I didn’t have to plug my phone in the middle of the day, something that happens even with high-end phones.

But I imagine that the most important item for everyone is the cameras. The summary is a rear camera consisting of a main sensor of 64 megapixels f / 1.7 with Quad Pixel technology, a wide angle of 8 megapixels f/2.2 and two other sensors 2 megapixels f/2.4 for depth readings and for macro photography. The front camera has a single sensor 13 megapixels f/2.2.

Starting with the front camera, we have quite acceptable daytime selfies, with a good level of detail in the foreground. In addition, we have the Facial Beauty function, which we can adjust automatically or manually, and although it is not exaggerated, it is always preferable to take the photo without effects or beauty tricks.

The image quality of the cameras, we have the rear one that complies without problems as long as you have daylight, although the dynamic range and the level of detail can be improved. Then, the wide angle, although the distortion is not exaggerated, the lens is less bright and the sensor is smaller, which translates into less detailed images and flatter colors. The macro lens, for its part, manages to focus at short distances, which is its main function, although being 2 megapixels, all the aforementioned problems are accentuated.

Also, we can find the Portrait mode, where the camera manages to capture more light and the results are quite good, from people to objects. In addition, we have the possibility of adjusting the background blur to our liking, but it is best not to go overboard because, taken to the maximum, the foreground cropping is somewhat artificial. What yes, I must be honest and in low light, the camera drops quite a bit in its performance.

In short, we have a very good mid-range unit with quality signals, equipped with everything to simplify your day-to-day tasks. I recommend it.
