Motorola presented to the world in this final stretch of the year three more cell phones for the premium segment: the Edge 30 Ultra, the Edge 30 Fusion and the Edge 30 Neo. It is worth highlighting the most powerful variant in the trio, as it is equipped with a 200 MP camera. And it is precisely this model that lands on our test bench.
The Edge 30 Ultra features a 6.7-inch, 144 Hz OLED screen with FHD+ resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 platform, 12 GB of RAM, 256 GB of internal storage, 5G and Wi-Fi 6E support, biometric reader under the display, 60 MP front camera, triple rear camera (200 MP / 50 MP / 12 MP), 4,610 mAh battery with 125W fast charging and Android 12 as the operating system under the My UX interface.
Our official battery test runs many popular apps, games and services on timed cycles until the battery is completely depleted, with standby time given between cycles to track background consumption. Screen brightness and network settings are standardized so that we can draw a parallel between all the models that have passed through our benches.
The apps present in the cycles, and their certain execution times per cycle, are:
- 6 minutes of usage (each) — WhatsApp, YouTube, MX Player (offline video), Spotify, PowerAmp (offline music) and Chrome;
- 1 minute (each) — Pokémon Go, Asphalt 8, Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, Modern Combat 5, and Injustice;
- 4 minutes of 3G/4G calls;
- 2 minutes of usage (each) — Facebook, Gmail and GMaps
