We have another forty. Of course, in the world of smartphone tinkering, this means nothing more than the addition of another member to smartphone maker Motorola’s 40 product line. The new Motorola Edge 40 Neo is starting to be sold on the domestic market, which, at least as far as the starting price is concerned, is logically placed below the Edge 40 Pro model, but also the standard Edge 40, which, paradoxically, currently costs less money. Quite possibly because its then starting price tag of 15,000 crowns seemed excessive even to us in the review.
But back to today’s tested piece. It shares many parameters with its more equipped sibling, but strangely surpasses it in some, but more on that later. Anyway, the identification mark is again perfumed ecological packaging without a single plastic, soy ink printed all text, cover made from recycled materials and also adapter for fast 68W charging. This time, the perfume was used not only on the USB-C cable and the back of the phone, but also on the cover itself, made in Sweden by the Agood Company.
A look at the list of specifications on the manufacturer’s website reveals that we can look forward to the combination 256 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM as well as a 10-bit display pOLED panel with a coverage of 90.2% of the front surface and refresh rate of 144 Hz. From other parameters, the stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos technology, the absence of unnecessary macro and bokeh sensors also look good and are also pleasing increased resistance IP68 certification. The higher Edge 40 model did not have many negatives, so in the following lines we will look at whether the problems have increased or decreased.
size and weight: 160 x 72 x 7.8mm, 172g

It is also worth mentioning that the Motorola Edge Neo is sold in three color variants on the Czech market. Specifically, they are blue (Caneel Bay), black (Black Beauty) and mint (Soothing Sea), to which the aforementioned recycled cover is always color matched. The only sold variant is 12 + 256 GB, and the manufacturer from the region put a much more acceptable price tag of 10,999 crowns, thanks to which I dare to say that this piece could sell much better.
