Motorola Edge 40 review: Slim lightweight with vegan leather case

Eyecatcher. Anyone wanting to buy the best Motorola smartphone will find what they are looking for in the manufacturer's Edge series, namely in the 6.55-inch Edge 40. The slim and light mid-range smartphone scores with a back cover made of vegan leather, offers a very bright 144 Hz OLED display, and also impresses with good performance and battery life.
Motorola Edge 40

The Edge 40 is Motorola's inexpensive version of its flagship smartphone, the Edge 40 Pro. Around US$300 cheaper than the latter, the Edge 40 offers a wide range of equipment at a fair price.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 of the flagship is not used in the Edge 40, but rather the solid, midrange MediaTek Dimensity 8020. Our test candidate also offers less RAM (8 versus 12 GB) and is only equipped with two camera sensors instead of three, but these also generate a resolution of 50 MP.

The OLED screen of the Edge 40 is slightly smaller than that of the 6.67-inch Edge 40 Pro at 6.55 inches and also has a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. Due to the smaller form factor, the Edge 40 thus has a slightly higher pixel density (402 vs 394 PPI). The refresh rate ends at 144 Hz, whereas the Edge 40 Pro manages up to 165 Hz.

The Edge 40 has the same design language as the Edge 40 Pro. The slim smartphone's corners and edges are just as rounded as the screen's long sides and converge into a thin aluminum frame. Overall, the Edge 40 is excellently manufactured and makes a valuable and robust impression. At a height of 7.49 millimeters and a maximum weight of 171 grams, it is very light and thin for a smartphone of its size.

If you opt for Eclipse Black, Nebula Green or Viva Magenta, these come with a back cover made of vegan leather, which makes the smartphone very easy to grip. Overall, the Edge feels much more secure to hold than the Edge 40 Pro, which has a glass back, as is typical for a high-end smartphone. In the fourth color variant, Lunar Blue, the Edge 40 is even lighter at just 167 grams. However, the back is made of matte acrylic instead of vegan leather.

The Edge 40 is IP68 certified, namely water- and dust resistant. This allows for submersion in shallow water for a few minutes without damage (up to 30 minutes in 1.5 meters of fresh water). Motorola does not specify the protection class of the display glass.

Equipment - Dual SIM with nano SIM & eSIM

The Motorola Edge 40 comes with the same memory configuration in every color variant, consisting of 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 flash. Expansion is not possible due to the lack of a microSD slot.

The Edge 40's USB-C port operates at USB 2.0 speeds and supports USB OTG. It also has to be used to connect wired audio devices due to the lack of a 3.5 mm jack.

Only a nano-SIM card fits in the SIM card slot, but an eSIM profile can also be activated in the settings. In addition to NFC and Bluetooth 5.2, the smartphone supports DRM Widevine L1. The latter enables the playback of high-resolution content from streaming services.

Software - Update to Android 14 guaranteed

Motorola equips the Edge 40 with a near-stock Android 13. There are only a handful of software additions, such as the proprietary Moto and Ready For apps. A few third-party apps such as TikTok or Marktguru also come preinstalled, but these can all be uninstalled.

According to the support website, Motorola guarantees one OS upgrade to Android 14. The manufacturer does not reveal how many upgrades there will actually be in the end, but you can certainly assume two OS upgrades. The Android security updates are more specific because the Edge 40 is slated to receive them every two months until January 2028. At the time of review in mid-June, the security patches were from April 1 and thus still up to date by Motorola's standards.

Like the Edge 40 Pro, the Edge 40 is also equipped with Motorola's Ready For technology, which, unlike the flagship, does not support USB-C connections, but only wireless connections. The Edge 40 screen content can be mirrored on a TV, external monitor, PC or tablet via Ready For.

Communication and GNSS - Motorola Edge 40 with WiFi 6

Hardly any mid-range smartphone comes without WiFi 6 nowadays, and the Edge 40 is no exception either. It cannot utilize the 6 GHz band for transmissions, but still achieves fast and stable transfer rates in tandem with our Asus ROG Rapture AXE 11000 reference router. The peak rate is 942 MBit/s, which makes the Edge 40 one of the fastest smartphones among the comparison devices. The Google Pixel 7 is even faster with its data throughput in the 6 GHz band.

The Edge 40 uses the GPS (L1, L5), Glonass (L1), Galileo (E1, E5a) and Beidou (B1, B2a) satellite navigation services to determine its location. The smartphone thus achieves a very precise location when stationary. Our position is pinpointed at an accuracy of up to 2 meters indoors and up to 1 meter outdoors.

To test the Edge 40's real-world navigation skills, we took it on a 10 km bike ride. Apart from small outliers, the smartphone records the route taken almost as precisely as the Garmin Venu 2 fitness smartwatch, which was used for direct comparison. All in all, the Edge 40 is quite suitable for navigational tasks.

Telephony and Voice Quality

The Edge 40 supports all common cellular standards apart from 5G Sub6. With 21 4G bands and 14 5G bands, it offers solid frequency coverage, so you should get reception at almost any location.

When making calls, the smartphone transmits our voice quite clearly and understandably to our conversation partner, even in hands-free mode. VoLTE and WiFi calling are supported.

In the Android settings, the Edge 40 displays its SAR values under the About phone and Regulatory approvals menu items. At 0.99 W/kg (head SAR) and 1.49 W/kg (body SAR), they are in a normal range.

Cameras - Bright dual camera with OmniVision OV50A

The Edge 40 has a similar camera setup as the Edge 40 Pro, although it lacks a telephoto lens. This leaves a 50 MP main camera, a 13 MP ultra wide-angle camera and a 32 MP selfie camera. The latter takes good pictures with decent image sharpness in daylight. Like the main camera, it can record videos at a maximum of 4K at 30 FPS.

The 50 MP main camera uses the OmniVision OV50A as the image sensor and takes 12 MP shots via 4-in-1 pixel binning. Thanks to its large aperture of f/2.4 and the optical image stabilizer, it takes surprisingly good and low-noise shots in low residual light. Daytime photos are also convincing with natural colors and a lot of detail, even in dark areas of the image.

The ultra-wide-angle camera (Hynix HI1336) covers a 120° field of view and has a resolution of 13 MP. In terms of detail richness and sharpness, it cannot compete with the main camera, but it does its job quite well. Towards the edges of the image, however, the image becomes quite blurry.

In the test lab, we took a closer look at the main camera in certain lighting situations. It reproduces colors quite accurately in optimal lighting and displays the test chart cleanly and sharply. The color fidelity remains comparatively high in 1 lux residual light and the test chart is still completely visible, but no longer particularly sharp.

Accessories and Warranty - 68-watt power supply included

The Edge 40 comes with a 68-watt power supply (11V/6.2A), a USB-C cable, a SIM needle, a protective case and a quick start guide. A number of accessories, such as headsets and Bluetooth speakers, are available in Motorola's store.

The Edge 40 comes with a 24-month warranty. There is also the option of extending the guarantee to 3 years with the Moto Care insurance cover and adding accident cover. 

Input Devices & Operation - 144 Hz and gesture control

The Edge 40's 144 Hz display ensures that content is displayed smoothly. The responsivity is also good, as the touchscreen is scanned 360 times per second and reacts very precisely to inputs. The display glass is curved on the long sides, which makes the edges particularly narrow. One could be forgiven for assuming that this might result in increased input errors, but we did not encounter any during the course of our tests.

The Edge 40's fingerprint sensor is located under the display, detects scanned fingers reliably and unlocks the smartphone very quickly. Unlocking via facial recognition also works with virtually no delay. Since authentication takes place via 2D software, a sufficiently bright environment is required for this. In dark environments, the residual light of the display is usually sufficient for Face Unlock.

In everyday life, the Edge 40 provides users with practical gesture control. For example, if you make a double chopping motion with the smartphone in your hand, the flashlight is switched on. If you turn your wrist twice, the camera starts. Another practical feature is that if you receive a call or a notification, the edges of the display light up by default. The Edge 40 does not have an always-on display.

Display - OLED with four-digit brightness

Subpixel grid

According to Motorola, the Edge 40's HDR10+ compatible OLED display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels is supposed to have a peak brightness of up to 1200 nits. The smartphone even surpasses this mark in our tests, achieving up to 1345 cd/m² in the APL18 test.

If you extend the measurement from the small image section to the full screen, the result doesn't look much worse. The Edge 40 still achieves a very good 1042 cd/m² and is thus practically on par with the Edge 40 Pro (1055 cd/m²). It clearly outperforms its Edge 30 predecessor with its maximum brightness of 655 cd/m². With the brightness sensor deactivated, the OLED display achieves a maximum of 510 cd/m², and 3.41 cd/m² at the lowest brightness level.

The Edge 40 uses pulse width modulation (PWM) for brightness control. The PWM flickering largely corresponds to the refresh rate at all brightness levels and should therefore not be an issue. However, there are quite a few PWM outliers, so sensitive users could certainly be affected. The Prevent flickering button in the Display Settings can help, as it prevents the display from flickering in dark environments.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 144 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 144 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 144 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18732 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance - MediaTek Dimensity 8020 for the Motorola smartphone

Motorola equips the Edge 40 with the MediaTek Dimensity 8020. The eight-core SoC works with 8 cores, which are divided into four ARM Cortex A78 performance cores (2.6 GHz) and four ARM Cortex A55 energy-saving cores (2 GHz). The ARM Mali-G77 MP9 serves as the integrated graphics unit.

The Dimensity 8020 is far from being able to compete with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 in the Edge 40 Pro, but it delivers solid midrange performance. This is also enough to beat quite a few rivals, including the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G and its Exynos 1380 SoC, as well as the Nothing Phone (1), which is powered by the Snapdragon 778G+ 5G.  Among the comparison devices, the Google Pixel 7 with its Tensor G2 is the toughest competitor for the Edge 40.

The Edge 40 performs well in the graphics benchmarks and is able to keep rivals such as Samsung's Galaxy A54 5G at bay. In contrast to the synthetic benchmarks, however, it is slightly slower than the Google Pixel 7, whose Mali G710 MP7 GPU offers more power. However, none of the comparison devices can beat the Xiaomi 12T Pro and its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

The Edge 40's browser performance is not particularly spectacular and is even worse than that of the the Edge 30. However, this is not noticeable in everyday use because websites are loaded and opened quickly.

Gaming- Fun on the Edge 40

The ARM GPU Mali G77 MP9 integrated in the MediaTek Dimensity 8020 ensures good gaming performance. Demanding games such as PUBG Mobile run smoothly at a constant 40 fps at the maximum selectable HDR/Ultra setting. However, the smartphone can only exhaust the potential of its 144 Hz display in graphically simple games such as Subway Surfers.

Frame rates were determined with our Gamebench tool.

Temperature

The Edge 40 gets quite hot during operation. We measured up to 48.9 °C on the surface after a 1-hour stress test. It should be noted here that we used the very demanding Burnout benchmark for the stress test, which is why such high temperatures are quite normal.

Internally, the smartphone has its temperatures well under control. The 3DMark stress tests show that the Edge 40 can maintain its performance for long periods of time. In the worst case, performance drops only slightly from 100 to 99.2 percent.
