The Christmas campaign begins to glimpse and manufacturers do not want to miss an opportunity. Since we have been behind our back for more than a year and a half, and the phones presented at the beginning of 2018 almost seem old, the brands they must renew the catalog to offer new sap. He has dedicated to that Motorola in China. Although … Well, the renovation could be put in quotes.
Yesterday we talked about the proximity in the presentation of the Motorola P30 and we already have it here: the mobile is official in China with the features that had been leaked. That includes the design: nobody escapes that it is a real iPhone X clone. This may not be too bad for a little known brand, but it is not something that a heavyweight like Motorola should fall into.
Leaving behind the controversy with its outward appearance, the Motorola P30 opts for a mid-range hardware with aspirations while integrating characteristic details, such as the manufacturer's Artificial Intelligence. Double glass face with different shades for the rear area in the most iconic model (Aurora, P20 Pro), aluminum frame, notch, double vertical rear camera … And a detail that is appreciated: the Motorola logo is the fingerprint reader. For its part, the front appears clean and used on a high level.
Motorola P30 Features
Although it is Motorola who puts the brand on the smartphone, it shows that who is behind the P30 is Lenovo. The inspirations in the design are a sample, also the software integrated in the device: ZUI. This implies that its users will have a quite distant experience of what pure Android represents; at least while the Motorola P30 Do not show up and the manufacturer will change the software, something unlikely.
Let's take a deep look at Motorola P30. How is this smartphone? Such that:
- screen: 6.2 inches FHD + (2246 x 1080 pixels), 19: 9 ratio.
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 8-core.
- RAM: 6 GB
- Storage: 64/128 GB.
- SD card: Yes, up to 256 GB.
- Rear camera: double of 16 + 5 MPX, sensors OV16B and OV5675, aperture of f / 1.8 and f / 2.2, respectively. Includes Artificial Intelligence, PDAF approach, video recording in 1080p, portrait mode, HDR …
- Front camera: 12 Mpx, f / 2.0 aperture, 1080p video recording.
- Drums: 3000 mAh with 18 W charger included.
- Android version: Oreo 8.0 with ZUI.
- Others: Dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, dual SIM, Dolby sound, USB-C. headphone jack, face unlock …
- Measurements: 155.5 x 75.95 x 7.69 mm.
- Weight: 170 grams.
- Colors: white, aurora black (blue with color variations).
The power is somewhat lame with the Snapdragon 636, a more than decent processor that, however, already has a time in the market. Quite the opposite of storage and RAM: more than enough, especially if the superior model is acquired, the 128 GB.
In hand it appears of quality, both in construction and in its appearance. Benefits that, without being high, do remain in a good quality / price ratio. Nor does his photographic set point well despite the fact that the sensors used raise some doubts: The Motorola P30 makes use of Artificial Intelligence to choose the best parameters before taking the picture; without this implying restricting the manual mode, which is also included.
Security is not neglected by including the fingerprint among the unlocking systems. This is curious because it is right in the Motorola logo where the reader is placed; taking advantage of the front and without highlighting in a negative way beyond the notch. Also included is the facial unlocking, but, as we know from other mobiles that do not have specific hardware for recognition, it will not be 100% secure. It is always better with the footprint.
