Motorola Edge 30 Ultra review: lives up to it

Now we come to the elephant in the room – the 200 megapixel camera. Now that 200-megapixel sensor is Samsung’s ISOCELL HM1 sensor with a 1/1.22-inch sensor size, f/1.9 aperture and 0.6um pixel size. The 200MP takes 12.5MP pixel-binning photos and supports optical image stabilization.


Tech details aside, a smartphone’s 200-megapixel sensor is massive and opens up a lot of possibilities. Now Motorola has tried to cash in on many of its skills. For example, the details in the photos are absolutely insane and cannot be compared to any other smartphone camera, but only when the images are captured at a full 200MP resolution.

When it comes to pixel-binning shots, you can hardly tell any difference between other flagship phones with smaller sensors. The detail in the recordings is still top notch and there is nothing to complain about. But we think Motorola could have done a better job of post-processing the photos.

Details in an image are a small part of an image. It’s important, but not the only thing that matters. Luckily, the primary sensor also has good dynamic range, capturing colors closer to nature.

All these things are not the problem here. And for a camera in a smartphone in this price range, it does a very good job. However, with a 200-megapixel sensor, we were expecting a bit more. By this we mean that photos taken indoors with sufficient light will have grain that degrades the image quality and also makes them appear a bit softer. The sharpness could have been better too.


Because the shots contain data from a 200-megapixel sensor, these things can be tweaked when editing the photos. We edited some photos and they turned out really well. You can take a look below.

In broad daylight, the 200MP sensor does a fantastic job. Details aside, the colors, saturation, brightness, vibrancy, everything is on point. The image doesn’t turn into a “fairyland” shot, and that’s a good thing.

With night mode on, the camera compensates for grain and lack of light. It’s also subtle and doesn’t overdo it, making the low-light shots look natural and realistic.

The other two sensors include a 50MP ultra-wide sensor and a 12MP portrait telephoto sensor. The 50-megapixel ultra-wide sensor is good, takes decent shots with adequate detail and color, and has good dynamic range too. The distortion factor is also limited. The telesensor also does a good job.


There is a 60 MP selfie camera on the front of the phone. While the camera doesn’t offer the ability to take photos in full 60MP resolution, even without it, camera quality is good and natural skin tones are preserved.

Motorola Edge 30 Ultra can record up to 8K videos. The video quality is also good, if not the best.
