Motorola edge 30 Fusion review: unboxing and first impression
Motorola officially introduced the Motorola edge 30 Fusion along with the edge 30 Ultra a few months ago. This is a high-end smartphone, which is below the price and hardware technology edge 30 Pro and 30 Ultra settled.
For an RRP of just under 600 euros, customers get a high-quality design, an OLED display with a smooth 144 Hertz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+, a 4.400 mAh battery and a 50 megapixel triple camera. The technical data gives us hope, but you can find out in a few weeks' time in our detailed test whether the Motorola edge 30 Fusion can also convince in everyday use. In this article we unpack the smartphone and get a first impression after a week of use.
The Motorola edge 30 Fusion comes in a plastic-free "eco-friendly" packaging, which feels comfortable and stable. On the front is only the logo of the manufacturer, the Proproduct name and a reference to the color “Viva Magenta”.
Once you have removed the cover, the first thing you see is a small box containing the usual paperwork, a SIM needle and a transparent protective cover. The smartphone, a 68 watt fast charge power supply unit and the appropriate charging cable from USB-C to USB-C can be found directly underneath. My version in the color "Viva Magenta" also comes with the Moto Buds 600 ANC along with a short charging cable and various attachments.
Motorola edge 30 Fusion first impressions
Within minutes of using the edge 30 Fusion, I realized that Motorola delivered across the board, starting with the design. The frame is made of matt aluminum, which together with the back is made of vegan leatherprofeels high quality. In addition, the smartphone is also very thin, pleasantly light and not too big, so that you can carry it with you procan be used easily with one hand. Motorola did some things right with the design, but with the successor to the edge 30 Fusion, I would wish that the transition from the back to the frame wasn't quite as sharp-edged.
The display also makes a good impression so far. It gets sufficiently bright and the smooth refresh rate of 144 Hertz has a positive effect together with the Snapdragon 888+. Although this one Prozessor is almost two years old, it ensures excellent performance in the edge 30 Fusion. Apps start and close quite quickly and stutters and delays hardly ever occur.
So far I have been pleasantly surprised by the battery life. Despite 4.400 mAh - which is relatively little by today's standards - I'm always proGot through a day without a charge with no problems. However, I would have expected a little more from the built-in vibration motor. Although this conveys a solid feeling in the hand, it sounds quite annoying and is much too loud for me personally.
I can't say too much about the camera yet. I have to take a closer look at this in the next few days and then my detailed test report will follow soon.
