Moto G30 review – a decent budget phone with a bloat-free user experience

  The Moto G30 was launched in India at a price of Rs 10,999.

    It runs mostly on Android 11 and also offers customization options.
    Its unique salesmen are inexperienced users who are not inflated, but face stiff competition in the price segment.
    If you want to consider Motorola's latest budget offer to buy your next smartphone, find out in our review of the Moto G30.

The Moto G30 is the latest line of Motorola's emerging smartphones. The unique selling point of these Moto smartphones that provide almost a stock Android experience is that they have no plotware and no advertising.

Compared to other Motorola phones offered, the Moto G30 is one step up. It is still a budget phone, but it is still loaded with a little power and features. The hardware is similar to RealMe 7i at the same cost and the swelling-free interface helps to keep the experience consistent.

We have been testing the Moto G30 for two weeks and here is our detailed review.

Design, Quality and Visualization

The Moto G30 runs on a chunky design. When it feels sturdy to handle, Motorola can enhance the experience by using a sophisticated curved rear design. The device weighs 200 grams.

 I did not like the color choice. However, it is very covered, so you will want to test both colors individually before making a decision.
In addition, the build quality is excellent. No noise, the phone did not turn. It looks like it was built like a tank.
The Moto G30 features a 6.5-inch HD + display with a 90Hz upgrade rate. Display size and refresh rate are positive, and resolution is acceptable at this price point when low.

It was a bit difficult for me while watching the content of the phone under direct sunlight.


Software is one of the features of the Moto G30. It is installed from the Android 11 box, and although it provides almost an Android experience, Motorola includes several customization options without ruining the user experience.

The phone comes with a pre-installed Moto app that allows you to customize the theme with different color schemes and icon patterns. You can use six different gestures to quickly access the camera, turn on the flashlight, open the phone, and more.

If you are a stock Android fan but still want some customization options, the Moto G30 may be on your list.

Performance and battery life

Motorola has opted for the Snapdragon 662 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There is no 6GB version, which will be big for those who want to prove their phone in the future.

In terms of real-world usage, the Moto G30 is fast and smooth. There is no temptation on the Snapdragon 662 chipset, but it is not very powerful. Although the overall usage was adequate, I noticed some minor flaws during gaming and scrolling.

This phone is powered by a 5,000 mAh battery and supports 20W fast charging. Moderate gaming, streaming, messaging, and calls made it easy for me throughout the day.

The Moto G30 includes a quad-camera system with 64MP main camera, 8MP wide angle camera and two 2MP cameras. Its front has a 13 MP selfie camera.

Daytime shots are perfect, but the colors stop a bit. Some of Motorola's phones have this problem and we hope to fix it with updates.

The phone struggles a bit in some challenging situations, especially when macro mode is enabled indoors.

The result is that the cameras are good in good light.


If you are looking for a budget smartphone without advertising and plotware then the Moto G30 is the best option. It provides a smooth and clean user experience while providing good performance and long battery life.

Other options to consider include Nokia 5.4 (if you prefer the stock Android experience), RealMe 7i and the recently launched Redmi Note 10.
