At an affordable price, the new Moto g30 delivers beyond expectations with an unbeatable camera system and an unbelievable viewing experience with massive amounts of storage. I particularly enjoyed the dark purple hue of the case that changed depending on the angle, proof that you don’t have to go expensive to get something sleek and stylish.  

There are a number of fun features with the Moto g30 including the Moto Actions where with a simple gesture, you can instantly turn on your torch or switch on your camera.

Speaking of the camera, this is the real selling point of the Moto g30 with its 64 MP ultra-high resolution quad camera system, providing sharper, brighter high-res images that will elevate your content from every angle. Low light is not an issue and I was able to capture sharp and bright photos thanks to 4x the low-light sensitivity, but you can also switch to Night Vision mode if you require more clarity.

There are a suite of camera features including the dedicated Macro Vision camera to bring you 4x closer to your subject and a great portrait feature where you can blur the background of your photos by adjusting the intensity.

If battery life is important to you, the Moto g30 over delivers here with it’s huge 5000 mAh battery giving you over two days of power on a single charge. Plus, the TurboPower™ 20 gives you up to 12 hours of power in just 20 minutes of charging.

With 128GB built-in storage, the Moto g30 rivals its more expensive competitors giving you plenty of room to take all your photos, movies, songs, apps, and games, animal memes…wherever you go. You can also add up to 512GB more using a microSD card.

At the tasty price of just $299, the Moto g30 delivers on all your basic needs of a smart phone, with upgrades worthy of a premium price.
