Motorola P30 review
Our Motorola P30 review arrives just after the release of the phone in its first market, China. If the Motorola P30 comes to the UK, then this will be Motorola’s flagship device and one that utilises AI for photography, gaming, battery management and security.
The Motorola P30 is one to watch and you can register your interest below.
Super View Full Screen
Taking on the notched screen design, the Motorola P30 gets a 6.2” Super View Full Screen that fills almost every corner of the front of the phone. The 19:9 screen aspect ratio brings with it a taller FHD+ resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels.

Moving away from this high resolution display, we find a double-sided 2.5D ceramic light glass body, which has been highly polished and finished to the highest standards. The glass that has been used is Corning Gorilla Glass, adding much needed durability.
New: Alcatel 1C review
This Motorola phone has an average thickness and weight of 7.69mm and 170g. There are standard white or black colour models along with Aurora, where the colour transitions from blue to purple.
The final piece of good news here is the P2i splash resistance. This nano-coating protects the phone from accidental spills, splashes and light rain.
Phone Set Up
AI face recognition
The Motorola P30 uses AI to unlock the phone faster than before. Complimenting face recognition is a fingerprint sensor and this has been positioned on the back, with the Moto ‘M’ logo printed over it.

If you need to transfer content over from your old mobile, then the internal memory offers plenty of space. There is a 64GB and 128GB model and both have a microSD card slot that accepts up to 256GB memory cards.
The Motorola P30 has an octa-core 1.8GHz processor with 6GB RAM. AI computing gives this a speed boost, when you enter the AI game mode. Gaming features include a do not disturb mode and a floating incoming call banner that lets you see who is calling, without jumping out of your full screen game.
Games and other media sound awesome with Dolby 360 degree surround sound.
This phone has the Android 8 Oreo operating system, which includes plenty of pre-loaded Google apps. You can also turn on Moto Gestures and do things like chop twice for the flashlight or twist your wrist twice to open the camera.
Camera & Video
Double-sided AI portrait photography
The Motorola P30 has a camera that captures some of the best photos that we have ever seen. The 16MP + 5MP camera combines two images for a better depth of field effect and layered picture. The results look so real that you will feel like you are back there in the moment, when you view them. Take a look at the photo gallery for examples.

The 12MP selfie camera uses an AI portrait background blur algorithm, to get studio-quality results. There is a selfie light that adjusts its colour and intensity, based upon the natural lighting. There is also an AI smart beauty algorithm that recognises gender, skin colour, age and skin texture. The phone uses these to make a 100-level beauty adjustment.
