Even 20 years ago, choosing a mobile phone was a relatively simple task. It was enough to find one that is within our budget, we like the visuals and has the coolest ringtone. Today it is not so easy anymore, because modern smartphones are almost real computers that offer great possibilities, but they differ in a huge number of features: processor or battery performance, display, memory capacity, camera capabilities, etc., etc. such as ours take on their shoulders the responsible and honorable task of testing these devices. All this so that our readers know whether a given model fits their requirements.

In today’s review, we will look at the Motorola Edge 30 Neo smartphone debuting at the beginning of August this year. It is a mid-priced product that we can buy today for PLN 1899. What does the manufacturer of this structure encourage us to buy? Advertising materials indicate, among others for compact dimensions, as well as for a pOLED screen with a refreshment of up to 120 Hz, which is to guarantee saturated colors in a wide range of spans (over a billion colors). We also have a fingerprint reader under the screen, competitively fast 68 W charging and even wireless charging. The main camera is responsible for photography, 64 MP with optical image stabilization and a second 13-megapixel photo unit, which provides us with ultra-wide-angle and macro photos and is responsible for depth detection.
Motorola Edge 30 Neo has compact dimensions, a pOLED screen with a refreshment of up to 120 Hz and fast charging enriched with Qi charging. Let’s check if it is a smartphone worth attention.
The premiere of smartphones Motorola Edge 30 Neo, Fusion and Ultra – fast, faster and fastest. And the latter is also highly photographic
In the smartphone specification, we also come across such elements as 5G network support, the mid-range Snapdragon 695 processor, which is expected to dial over 400,000. point in AnTuTu 9 and 8 GB of RAM. The latter parameters mean that in terms of performance, the “handset” will be able to fight for the customer, for example with such structures as realme 9 Pro or POCO X4 Pro. As it turns out, both of these smartphones are cheaper than Motorola, tested today. Why? In the case of the model from realme, it should be remembered that it is equipped only with an IPS screen and a battery with a rather average charging power. POCO X4 Pro is a much more serious competitor, but Motorola can benefit from a better camera for video calls or selfie, Dolby Atmos support, and the increasingly desirable inductive charging.-

The truth is, however, that taking into account only the dimensions of the Motorola Edge 30 Neo smartphone, it basically has no competition. There are not so many handy models on the market today, and if they are, they are definitely more expensive. Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, Google Pixel 6a, Sony Xperia 5 IV, Asus Zenfone 9, Xiaomi 12 or iPhones from the Mini series are also relative “little ones”, but in terms of price they definitely exceed the Motorola tested today. Ultimately, at the very beginning, it can be said that in terms of portability, the Motorola Edge 30 Neo has no competition at a price of up to PLN 2,000. However, as they say “size is not everything”, it should be checked whether this compact design goes hand in hand with any specific advantages. So let’s move on to the key elements of the review on the following pages, without extending it.
