Moto E30 is the new budget smartphone from Motorola: how it’s made

Motorola Moto E30 is official in Europe: it's the latest budget proposal of the winged house, here's how it's made and how much it costs

Motorola Moto E30 is the latest proposal of the winged house for those who want a smartphone really undemanding on the economic level and able to ensure - ensures the company - an enjoyable user experience. It could be the ideal choice for those who do not have great pretensions and want to spend as little as possible (although it must fear competition from the latest Wiko).

The new Motorola smartphone has a simple and modern design. Detractors of the notch will certainly appreciate the hole in the display, which gives Moto E30 an aesthetic in line with the latest proposals in the smartphone market. It possesses a physical fingerprint reader on the back, placed inside the small circular Motorola logo, a plastic chassis that should provide greater drop resistance, a rear surface also made of plastic with an ad hoc treatment to make it water repellent, and an overall balance that could give it that extra edge on the entry level of the smartphone market.

Motorola Moto E30, what it looks like

Motorola Moto E30 has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD screen with HD+ resolution (720 x 1,600 pixels), so not very high even if the density is not low (270 pixels per inch), which is however compensated by the refresh rate of 90 Hz, a feature almost impossible to find on competitors of the same price.

Motorola's budget smartphone relies on the Unisoc T700 chip, an octa core with a maximum frequency of about 2 GHz, flanked by 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space type eMMC 5.1, however expandable through a microSD up to 1 TB capacity.

The front camera inserted into the hole in the display of Motorola Moto E30 is 8 megapixels, while on the opposite surface find space for three cameras: the main 48 MP f/1.8 and two sensors of 2 MP each, one for macro, then photos with subjects at close range, and one for the detection of depth of field. Video in Full HD at 30 fps.

In terms of connectivity Motorola Moto E30 can count on 4G LTE with support for two SIM Cards (and there is no need to give up memory expansion), Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, USB-C input for charging and data transfer and an input for the 3.5 mm audio jack.

The battery, combined with a chip that should not consume too much, seems to be able to ensure excellent performance in terms of autonomy: there are 5,000 mAh of capacity available, while charging can be done at a maximum of 10 watts.

Motorola Moto E30 measures 165.1 × 75.6 × 9.14 mm and weighs 198 grams. To bring out the best from the hardware available to the smartphone, the designers have chosen Android 11 Go Edition, a "light" version of Google's operating system that allows even budget smartphones to have good performance.
