Moto Edge 40: Should You Buy?

The Moto Edge 40, priced at Rs 29,999, focuses more on aesthetics and delivering an overall package rather than offering the best price-to-performance ratio. The smartphone features a curved OLED display which is rare in the price segment and the leather-textured back panel does make it feel premium compared to its competitors.

However, the Moto Edge 40 features a Dimensity 8020 which is inferior compared to Qualcomm Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 and Dimensity 8200 that competition is offering at this price point.
