Take a look at the accessories included out of the box:

Manual and Nokia X30

The mobile phone packaging uses 100% FSC certification and 70% environmentally friendly paper boxes, and its size has also become smaller to reduce carbon emissions caused by transportation. At the same time, the charger was cut out to reduce electronic waste.

Body Details

The Nokia X30 features a 6.43-inch 2,400 x 1,080 pixel AMOLED aperture screen, supports a 90Hz screen refresh rate, AMOLED PureDisplay technology, an under-screen fingerprint sensor, and more. The body is 158.9mm high, 73.9mm wide, 7.99mm thick, and weighs 185g.

The back of the machine is made of plastic environmentally friendly material, fingerprints and stains are not obvious, and it is convenient to operate with one hand.

There are dual SIM card slots on the bottom, which also support the eSIM function, as well as a microphone, USB Type-C slot, and speaker.

The right side has the power button and volume button.

There is a microphone on the top.

Watching the 1,080p trailer for Avatar 2: The Way Of Water on YouTube, the screen borders are slightly thick, but the full-screen viewing experience is acceptable, with good brightness and vibrant colors. In terms of sound, there is only a single speaker at the bottom of the machine, the volume is acceptable, and the stereoscopic effect is insufficient.

Benchmarks And Performance

Nokia X30 uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G processor, supports Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, 8GB RAM, 256GB ROM, Android 12 system, up to 3 years system updates and 3 years regular security update guarantee, IP67 waterproof and dustproof, OZO Spatial Audio capture, etc. . Through the “AnTuTu” app, the score is only 401,316 points, the performance is average, and it is slightly eclipsed by mid-range mobile phones.

Battery Life

The Nokia X30 has a 4,200mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging. Using 50% brightness to run the battery life test through the “PC Mark” application, the power dropped from 100% to 20%, it took about 13 hours and 29 minutes, the battery life is acceptable, I believe it is enough for a full day of use.

Shooting Power

The Nokia X30 has a 50-megapixel PureView OIS main lens, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle macro lens, and a 16-megapixel front-facing lens.

The mobile phone supports night scenes, portraits, theaters, super video anti-shake, etc. The shooting function is quite practical.

The new tripod mode in the night scene mode will automatically extend the exposure time, providing up to 40 seconds of exposure time, while the professional mode can only provide up to 20 seconds of exposure.

Shooting in sunlight and dusk, the 50-megapixel main lens captures clear images with rich details of stone grains, wood grains, and clouds in the sky, high color reproduction, and a sense of environmental hierarchy.

Shooting in night vision mode, the exposure ability is exaggerated, in a dim environment, the image is still very bright, and it can maintain a good level of detail, rich in color, and will not be affected by ambient lighting.

Shooting with a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, the image clarity is obviously not as good as the main lens, but the sharpness is good, the details of trees and buildings are also quite obvious, the colors are clear, and the wide-angle distortion is not obvious.

Also using night vision mode, the exposure is not as good as the main lens, the noise is also more, the sharpness drops a lot, and the shooting ability is average, but if you use the tripod mode, the exposure is about 36 seconds, which can effectively improve the image clarity, the image is brighter, and the noise is less. There is less information.

Shooting in portrait mode, the main body of the flower is prominent, the edges are well processed, there is no blurring error, and the background blurring effect is excellent.

Summary and Evaluation

Nokia X30 is only available in 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM version, with twilight blue and snow white body, and the suggested retail price is HK$3,698. The price of Nokia X30 is not too expensive. Although the performance and audio-visual experience are average, the battery life is also of a certain level, and the shooting ability is quite outstanding. 

The images captured by the 50-megapixel PureView main lens are clear, the colors are vivid and clean, the night vision mode is strong, the exposure ability is quite exaggerated, and a little overexposed, and the ultra-wide-angle lens is not so detailed, but the performance is not bad.
