Today, we welcome what Motorola calls the ‘best-designed Android phone’ to our office – the Edge 30 Neo. We have the unit in Veri Peri Purple, Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year. The other three colors – Aqua Foam, Black Onyx and Ice Castle – also make it clear that the focus here is on design.
Since we’ve already covered the Motorola Edge 30 Neo, let’s focus on the unboxing experience and the color of the phone.
Motorola bundles the Edge 30 Neo with a 68W charger and a USB-C cable.
Motorola claims it only has 10 minutes on the dubious ‘Power of the Day’ adapter. We will make sure to put more specific numbers on charging hours. Alternatively, you can charge the Edge 30 Neo with a 5W wireless charger.
Motorola Edge 30 Neo is a compact phone. The display size is 6.28 inches, which puts it in the company of the Xiaomi 12X or next to the Galaxy S22. The Moto isn’t as premium on the inside, but you’d never guess it on the outside.
It has a nicely textured rear panel and a quality 120Hz OLED on the front. As a bonus, the Edge 30 Neo also has IP52 flash protection. The weight of 155 grams is very light today.
Finally, the Very Perry color has been named by Pantone, the company recognized as the 2022 color of the year as the de-facto color space for color correction. There is a small plaque on the box and the phone that recognizes Pantone’s certification.
We will now pass this on to the review team and they will report back with their findings shortly. Follow it!
