Motorola Edge 30 Fusion Review: In an effort to produce a potent, yet cost-conscious mid-range device, the Motorola Edge 30 Fusion, as its name suggests, combines the high-flying characteristics of the Edge 30 Ultra with the affordability of the Edge 30 Neo. The final product is a largely elegant hybrid with a beautiful display, long-lasting battery, and adequate, though unimpressive, performance for the price. The Fusion doesn’t provide the same value as the Ultra provides because of its performance, but it doesn’t make it a failure.
This is the middle child of the three new Moto gadgets and is categorically a mid-ranger. Sure, it never surpasses the eldest, but I’d contend that it works harder and gets better grades than the family’s misbehaving infant. For a price in India that is higher than Rs 40,000, the gadget competes against some of the best smartphones in its market, including the Google Pixel 6a (review), iQOO 9, and Realme GT Neo 3 5G 150W. Does the Motorola Edge 30 Fusion has the necessary qualities to contend.

Design & key features
Although the Edge 30 Fusion is ostensibly offered in a variety of colours, there are now just two variants available, each of which has a unique finish. The Viva Magenta is covered in a layer of velvety vegan leather, while the Cosmic Grey features a fairly normal glass panel on the back.Both models have an aluminium frame with front and back Gorilla Glass 5 protection. On the right side are the power and volume rockers. While the bottom edge houses the SIM tray, USB-C charging connector, and one of the two stereo speakers. With the other one located on the top edge. Similar to the Edge 30 Ultra, the Fusion’s weatherproofing is only rated IP52, which is better than nothing but still inferior to devices like the IP67-rated Google Pixel 6a.
The Edge name alludes to the Fusion and Ultra’s light notification system, which lights around the display to notify you of calls, messages, and alarms. The selfie camera is positioned in a hole punch notch at the top of the screen. While an optical fingerprint sensor can be found underneath the display. Additionally, the dual-SIM tray does not support microSD cards and lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Fusion’s 6.55in OLED panel has the same 2,400 x 1,080 (FHD+) resolution and HDR10+ capability as its bigger sister, and even retains the incredibly smooth 144Hz refresh rate. This continues the design echoes of the Edge 30 Ultra. The peak brightness of 492cd/m2 is a tad on the dull side, but is acceptable for the price. As befitting an OLED panel, the contrast and black level are nearly perfect.There are two colour modes to choose from, matching both the Neo and Ultra. Natural gives a more true, if slightly subdued. Colour palette while Saturated does exactly what it says on the label by turning the colours up to 11. The display effectively reproduces a wide range of colours with incredible precision. As I measured a sRGB gamut coverage of 97% on the Natural option, with a volume of 98.3%.

Performance and battery life
The Snapdragon 888 Plus makes sense as the next best thing, considering the price gap, as the Fusion wasn’t expected to use the same premium Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset that drives the Edge 30 Ultra at this price. Even yet, the fact that the Fusion has the same chipset as the Motorola Moto G200, a phone that was released over a year ago and costs Pound 100 less, isn’t exactly reassuring.
The results are seen in the Geekbench 5 chart below, where the Moto G200 achieved scores that were generally comparable to those of the Edge 30 Fusion in both the single-core and multi-core CPU tests.In fact, the Fusion only managed to outperform the Honour 70 among the phones I tested it against, and even then, only marginally. The clincher, though, is that all of these phones are between Pound 50 and Pound 100 less expensive than the Fusion. With the exception of the Honour 70 and Xiaomi 12T’s original retail costs.
The Edge 30 Neo’s 64MP sensor and the 200MP lens utilised by the Edge 30 Ultra are both noticeably inferior than the smaller 50MP (f/1.8) main camera. But pixel count isn’t everything; as you can see in the image below. The Neo creates images that are a little washed-out and devoid of finer details. The Fusion is passable and produces strong contrast in the leaves and branches. But the Ultra is still the finest of the three.The Edge 30 Ultra’s ability to record 4K and 8K video is still available. But only at a maximum frame rate of 30 fps. You have the choice to trade off resolution for a higher framerate because 1080p supports up to 120fps. Whatever setup you choose, panning is largely shake-free thanks to some efficient optical picture stabilisation. There is also sufficient of detail in excellent illumination.

There was always going to be a fairly substantial shadow cast over the other Edge devices because the Edge 30 Ultra was such a delightfully surprising, powerful surprise. The Fusion largely succeeds in emerging from that darkness and casting its own light. Battery life is respectable, and the 68W fast charging is adequate for most users. The panel is still outstanding, with excellent colour reproduction and a generous 144Hz refresh rate.
Although you can acquire performance that is similar to or slightly better for less money. You will have to give up other qualities in the process, such as battery life, features, or overall design appeal. In conclusion, even if it just misses earning a recommendation. The Motorola Edge 30 Fusion is a good consolation prize if your budget doesn’t quite stretch as far as the Ultra.
