Edge 30 Ultra, Fusion Review: Are Motorola’s new flagships the best phones with Android almost in stock?

Motorola Edge 30 Ultra and Motorola Edge 30 Fusion are the company’s latest premium phones to debut in India. The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra flagship handset is equipped with the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, a 200-megapixel main camera and a 60-megapixel selfie camera, and supports 125W fast charging – the Fastest Charging Speed ​​in the Company to Date. Meanwhile, the Motorola Edge 30 Fusion sports a Snapdragon 888+ SoC, a 50-megapixel camera, and 68W fast charging support.

There’s plenty of competition in India’s flagship smartphone market, so will the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra and Motorola Edge 30 Fusion be able to beat the offerings from OnePlus, Samsung, Apple and iQoo? Orbital Host Akhil Arora talks with Senior Reviewer Sheldon Pinto and Reviewer Pranav Hegde about Motorola’s latest flagships on this week’s episode of the Gadgets 360 podcast.

Sheldon says he appears to have received a problematic Motorola Edge 30 Ultra review unit, as the handset regularly reboots. Reboots were random and happened when booking an Uber or clicking pictures. The handset also gets incredibly hot when charging using the included charging brick. Continuous reboots rendered the smartphone essentially unusable, and the company announced that it would send another review unit.

On the other hand, Pranav said that his experience with the Motorola Edge 30 Fusion has been satisfactory so far. The handset packs a 4,500mAh battery and a glass back, but weighs just 175g. However, the phone comes with just 128GB of inbuilt storage. If you’re shooting in 4K resolution, you’ll run out of storage, he points out.

The Motorola Edge 30 Fusion’s display features a 6.55-inch Full HD+ (1080 x 2400 pixels) curved pOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate. According to Pranav, the display is good, while that the curved edges are no problem when shooting or playing games.

In response to Sheldon’s question about the quality of the camera, Pranav says the handset’s 50-megapixel camera takes vivid photos in daylight, which can be tuned later. The 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera takes slightly cooler images, he adds. The only issue it found was with skin tones – the camera sometimes captured lighter skin tones or a red tint in some images.

The Motorola Edge 30 Fusion’s pricing strategy is a bit confusing, according to Pranav. While other handsets with the Snapdragon 888+ are cheaper at this point, it’s worth noting that there are few options if you want flagship hardware, with a near-stock or “clean” Android experience.
