Reviews for the Motorola Moto E40
Motorola offers a smartphone under 150 Euros (~$169) with the Moto E40. If you have always wanted a fast screen in your cell phone on a tight budget, you should pay attention. However, savings had to be made elsewhere...
The Motorola Moto E40 isn't flawless, but it gets the work done, just like most sub 10,000 phones. The phone has a durable build (IP52 rating), a large and fluid 90Hz display, and a long battery life. It comes with decent hardware, and I don't see why a casual user would be unhappy with it. Until you load something hefty, the Unisoc T700 SoC works along smoothly. The loading time for major apps and games is longer than ideal. While the near-stock Android experience will please purists, which is a rarity in the budget price range, the camera performance may disappoint. Having said that, there are smartphones in this price bracket that have an FHD+ display, an ultrawide camera, and fast charging capabilities. But they don't always come with the perks that come with this smartphone. In the end, everything comes down to this or that. To put it another way, if you want a stock and snappy Android experience, you'll find it in Motorola Moto E40, but with some trade-offs.

One of the main reasons why you need to buy the Motorola Moto E40 is because of the bloatware-free interface that gives an almost identical feel to the original Andriod. Also, the screen, performance, and battery will not let you down at all. But the same things can’t be said for the camera department, and that doesn’t improve the camera software. In short, if you’re looking for a clean Android experience and an affordable phone with long battery life on top, the Motorola Moto E40 is worth recommending. Although if you go with Redmi, Tecno and Infinix branded phones, you’re more likely to notice bloatware. So it’s hard to recommend any alternative at this price range, but it’s worth checking out the Realme Narzo 50i as an alternative.

The Moto E40 is the latest offering from Motorola in the sub-Rs. 10,000 market. It offers decent hardware, and for a casual user, I see no reason to complain. The Unisoc T700 SoC chugs along just fine until you launch something heavy. For large apps and games, the load time is longer than ideal. While the near-stock Android experience might keep purists happy, its camera performance won't impress anyone. If stock Android appeals to you and you're on a tight budget, the Moto E40 makes a strong case for itself. Those looking for alternatives can look at the Realme Narzo 30A (Review) or the recently reviewed Infinix Hot 11S (Review)..

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014.
