Grab a great deal on one of the slimmest and best 5G phones

Motorola Edge 30

If you want an affordable phone that gives you access to the fast 5G network, look no further. JB Hi-Fi currently has a fantastic price on the Motorola Edge 30 which is hard to beat.

At $349, it’s less than half the price of its original $699 RRP from last year. We reviewed the phone last year and walked away impressed by its strong value proposition. Adam Turner, who reviewed the handset, praised its “slender design packed with premium features” with kudos given for being “heavy on value”.

If, at $699, the Motorola Edge 30 represented good value, the $349 sale price is a ridiculously good deal.

What to know about the Motorola Edge 30

Aside from supporting 5G connectivity, the base Edge 30 model has a generous 6.5-inch AMOLED display with a smooth 144Hz refresh rate. It’s also a fairly speedy device, with 8GB of RAM supporting the Snapdragon 778G+ 5G chip.

The model currently on sale at JB Hi-Fi is the 128GB version, with the only drawback being that it doesn’t have a microSD card slot for expanded storage. Its 4020 mAh battery is also a bit smaller than the 5000 mAh variety included with competing phones, but the Motorola Edge 30’s performance makes up for its shortcomings.

On the back, a triple camera array gives you plenty of photography options. Here, you’ll find a 50MP wide lens, a 50MP ultrawide lens, and a 2MP macro lens. Rounding out the cameras is a 32MP selfie camera. For less than $400, it’s hard to find a phone with better photo-taking credentials than this.

We’re not sure how long the sale lasts, so have a look soon if you’re interested in the Edge 30: Amazon price-beat JB’s offer and sold out quickly at the time of writing!
