There’s more to the Motorola Edge 40 Neo than its curved screen and sleek, modern design. Perhaps it’s a good balance of features and price. We’ve tried it out, so it’s time to give some compelling reasons why you should consider it as your next mobile phone.

The mobile phone becomes the most affordable in the series, with a price in Mexico of 7,699 pesos, which is about 430 US dollars with a quick conversion. Next, in ascending order, is also the attractive Edge 40, priced at P9,999.

Available in fashionable color options designed by Pantone, including genuine leather versions, the smartphone features a 6.5-inch curved POLED display in an easy-to-use design without the feeling that you might accidentally slip at any moment.

Some display characteristics: Full HD+ resolution, maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz and excellent color reproduction. All this is complemented by stereo sound compatible with Dolby Atmos.

In practice, people will be able to play their favorite video content with optimal quality and high contrast levels. The same applies to simply browsing the web: you have a pleasant experience when reading an article or navigating from one electronic page to another.

In addition to the design, a square module in which the cameras are located stands out at the back, and on the right side there are buttons that allow you to adjust the volume or turn off the device.

There is no 3.5 mm jack, but the brand provides wireless headphones Moto Buds 135 in the package along with a phone case. These are simple headphones, but the manufacturer’s intentions are appreciated in any case.

Autonomy and handling

It’s hard to ignore the fact that the cellphone is affordable, comes with 68W fast charging and a 5000mAh battery. All this means it will be ready in about 50 minutes at 100 percent power and will provide up to two days of use on a single charge.

This is important for those who want to forget about accessories when leaving home for work or school, and even for those who do not want their entertainment to be interrupted while on the road.

The Motorola Edge 40 Neo does all this and more, for which its processor and RAM are also important. In the case of this device, we are talking about MediaTek Dimensity 7030 and 8 GB of RAM.

It can be said that these types of specifications are enough for everyone to download their favorite mobile developments, from productivity apps and even games. We did this in tests conducted for this article, and the results were satisfactory.

And not to worry about space, the Edge 40 Neo has a base memory of 256GB. In other words, it offers an alternative to downloading streaming content or storing hundreds of photos created with it on your phone.

The Motorola mobile phone comes with a 50MP primary camera and a 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens. Front – 32 MP.

What we can confirm about the rear optics is that they do deliver photos that stand out in their accuracy, level of detail and color. Those night shots that contain elements of artificial lighting also stand out.

The camera app interface also contributes to the user experience, allowing you to choose the optimal settings for modes such as slow motion, video, photo, portrait and Pro.

For example, already in the general settings you can set parameters such as automatic smile capture, selfie using a gesture, scene optimization, automatic HDR, assist grid, aligner and location.

What can be concluded here is that it is possible to achieve an image worth sharing if people have the courage to mark those preferences that best fit a certain scenario. Simply turning on a tool like an equalizer increases your chances of getting more balanced images.

Other Features

Additional aspects that make the Motorola Edge 40 Neo more interesting: dust and water resistance thanks to the IP68 rating (it can be submerged in water up to 1.5 m deep for 30 minutes), Android 13 operating system, 7.79 mm thickness, weight 170 g and 4K video recording.

This is a 5G-ready cell phone, so fast loading of content is guaranteed when moving from one point to another.

First conclusions

Coming in the mid-range category, the Motorola Edge 40 Neo can safely be said to be one of the most user-friendly mobile phones you will find in the market, as evidenced by the balance between its price and features.

Of course, one can always ask for more from a device of this type, from 12 GB of RAM to a more extensive camera array, but this would also mean talking about a more expensive mobile phone.

In other words, it offers exactly what it has for its price, plus a few extra features like fast charging, extra headphones, and a curved screen that offers an enhanced multimedia experience.
