. Now we have the G30 in hand. This one is the real successor of the old Moto G series and brings a mix of G9 Play with G9 Power.. Does Motorola’s basic intermediary deliver a good set, Let’s check it out. The G10 and G30 are very similar.. They have the same size, weight and drop shaped notch for the selfie camera.. What helps to differentiate the new Motorola models is the rear finish.. The cheapest has a matte plastic back in a small wave pattern, while the most expensive has a smooth back, but with the same satin touch as the G10.. The G30 arrived in the national market in two color options: white with a touch of lilac and black, with a touch of green.. The set of cameras resembles that of the G10, both in size number of cameras and position at the rear.. The biometric reader is close by integrated with the Motorola logo.. It works well, but it could be more agile. On the right side of the G30. We find the power button, volume control and a dedicated button for Google Assistant.. On the opposite side, there is only the hybrid SIM card and micro sd drawer, while at the top we have the headphone jack. In the bottom. There are USB C speaker and the call microphone. That’s. Basically, it nothing fancy design with thin edges, advanced water protection or even a second speaker for stereo.. The Moto G30 also doesn’t come with NFC, but it brings the basics with Wi, Fi, 5 GHz and gyroscope.
. Perhaps the biggest highlight of the Moto G30 is its 90 Hz screen being the cheapest from Motorola with such a panel.. The downside is that the brightness is as low as that of the Moto G10.. Using the G30 outside the home will be a challenge on the sunniest days, but at least the contrast is excellent and delivers more vivid, colors and deeper black than any entry phone with LCD screen.. There are three speed options for the screen. You can lock the panel at 60 or 90 Hz as well as use automatic mode. In this mode. The G30 will raise the speed to 90 Hz only when you touch the screen, keeping the display at 60 Hz, most of the time to help save battery.. The multimedia experience is limited by mono. Sound Motorola has already invested in cell phones with stereo sound in this price range, but it seems that it has decided to save on the latest generations of the Moto G line., With that in mind, know that the G30 does just the basics in the sound part.. The power is average and the sound is far from ideal in terms of bass mid and treble reproduction.. At least the voices come out less muffled than we saw on the Moto G10. But if you are looking for a cell phone with stereo sound in this price range, you will have to resort to Xiaomi’s rivals. At least Motorola still. Ships a headset in the box, as even Samsung, has given up on it.
. The Moto G30 comes equipped with a Snapdragon 662 chip combined with 4 GB of RAM. This being the same configuration present in the Moto G9 Play and G9 Power.. We were disappointed with the multitasking performance in the G10 and we can say that the G30 could also be better.. It can even handle a fair amount of open applications in the background, but weve seen Motorolas best in our test. In benchmarks. There is nothing to complain about since the G30 achieves the same score as others with the same hardware.. In the case of AnTuTu, we have an average of 170 thousand points, 20 more than the Moto G10. And in games is the G30 capable of running any game at 90. Fps. So don’t expect that from Motorola’s basics. All the games we tested ran in the low setting and still had some gagging. At PUBG. It is possible to play in HD with decent fluidity, but it is clear that the Moto G30 is not a gamer phone.. The Moto G10 does well on batteries. Does the Moto G30 also achieve great autonomy with its 90 Hz screen? The answer is yes: even though the autonomy falls a few hours at the maximum speed of the screen, it is still possible to have a battery for more than a day.. The G30 comes with a Turbo Power charger in the box, and it takes two and a half hours to completely fill the battery.. With a quick charge of 15 minutes, you will have 17, which reaches 31 in half an hour in the socket.
. The Moto G30 comes with Android 11 and the few modifications by Motorola that are gathered in the Moto app that offers some customization options to change the font, format and colors of the icons.. There is a session dedicated to classic Motorola gestures, such as shaking the phone to turn on the flashlight or rotating the device to open the camera.. There are options to display notifications on the device screen in the same style as Always On Display.. You can also keep the screen always on while you are looking at the phone.. It is basically the same experience that you will have on the Moto G10, but with an interface that chokes less and with a promised update for Android 12. While the cheapest one can die with the same version of the little robot with which it was launched.. The quad camera set of the G30 is almost the same as the G10, the only change being the main one that brings the new 64 MP sensor from Samsung. The other cameras include one with ultra wide lens one macro and one dedicated for blurring. background.. Due to having a more advanced sensor and more powerful hardware, we expected a considerable difference in the camera of the G30 in relation to the G10, but it turns out that the two record, almost identical photos. On sunny days, you will have an image with a good Level of detail and colors without excessive saturation, but in dark places the quality drops a lot.
. The G30 has night mode that makes photos clearer, however, taken by excessive noise.. The ultra wide delivers the same as seen on the G10, with smoother photos with little detail and clearer noise. At least HDR works well, and the lens correction algorithm avoids distortion in the corners of the images.. The blur camera is also similar between the two devices, but we noticed that the photos come out a little clearer on the G30 as it tends to hold the ISO at higher values. In addition to tending to cooler white., The macro is as limited as that of the cheapest model being the most disposable camera in the set.. The front camera has a more advanced sensor in the G30, but we expected more from the selfies. On sunny days or places with good lighting. You will have detailed photos with skin tone close to the natural, but just go to closed and darker places that selfies lose sharpness and present noise and texture flaws.. The portrait mode is decent and has few flaws.. It is a pity that the most advanced sensor of the G30 has not improved its ability to record videos and that we are limited to Full HD at 60 fps, as we have on the Moto G10.. The quality of the videos could be better too, but when filming during the day, we even get decent results, but at night the quality drops a lot, especially with the ultra wide.. The front end is surprising for being good for filming in dark places surpassing much cheaper cell phones.
. The audio capture is stereo, but there is no efficient noise reduction. Control.. The Moto G30 is a phone that could be better for the price that Motorola asks for it.. The best alternative currently on the national market is the Galaxy A32, which also has a 90 Hz screen, but comes with a Super AMOLED panel. Much better than Motorola’s, simple LCD. Samsung’s delivers better battery life and slightly superior multi tasking performance. In cameras. The A32 also has an advantage.. It doesn’t make a point of a 2021 launch from Motorola, so the Moto G9 Power might be a good option.. It costs less today and delivers better multi tasking performance, its battery lasts longer and the screen is bigger.. The bad lady is not having a 90 Hz panel, but it makes up for it with a better set of cameras. From Xiaomi. We have the Poco M3, with a configuration similar to the G30 being able to surpass in battery and cameras, but the performance is not the best due to the poorly optimized MIUI.. The Moto G30 will be a good device when its price is close to R 1000.. It stands out for its 90 Hz screen good battery and the ability to record good daytime photos in addition to Android 11 from the factory with few modifications.. What could be better is the brightness of the screen, the multi tasking performance, the rest of the cameras in the set, the recharge time and Motorola’s support for security updates.
. The biggest threat to the Moto G30 is the Galaxy A32, which is more expensive today, but the small price difference makes up for the best set delivered. The new entry level. Entry into Motorola’s intermediary will only make sense if it is much more affordable, especially against older models of the brand itself that have devalued a lot in recent months.
