With high-end mobiles shot above a thousand euros, many users have seen the new premium mid-range as a way to enjoy the characteristics of flagships for a more affordable price. It is the case of the mobiles that we face today, the OPPO Find X2 Neo and Motorola Edge.
Two phones They offer us the best of the mid-range, and some unique features for this type of mid-range mobile. Two terminals that are now even better priced and that can be a good purchase.
Screen and dimensions
Here are the first differences, starting with the size, since the OPPO has a 6.5-inch, AMOLED and with Full HD + resolution with a hole in the screen. In the case of the Motorola it is undoubtedly its most interesting aspect, the 6.7 inch curved screen that runs along the edges in the style of the Samsung Edge.
It also has OLED technology and a hole for the camera. Both screens are 90Hz and integrate the fingerprint reader. The OPPO measures 159.4 x 72.4 x 7.7 mm and weighs 171 grams, being a very light mobile, while the Motorola Edge measures 161.6 x 71.1 x 9.3 mm and weighs 188 grams, a little more. But the latter holds on better thanks to its 21: 9 aspect ratio display.
There is enough equality here, because they both have the Snapdragon 765G processor, which also provides 5G connectivity. But in the RAM and storage section there are differences, the Find X2 Neo arrives with 12GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage.
Meanwhile he Motorola It has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, half, although logically the price of the first is higher. In its favor, the Edge can expand its internal memory with microSD cards.
In both cases we have a quad camera, although with different configuration. OPPO has 48-megapixel, 13-megapixel telephoto, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and 2-megapixel black-and-white sensors. In the Moto we have sensors of 64 megapixels, 8 megapixels telephoto, 16 megapixels ultra wide angle and a depth TOF.
So there is a little more resolution in the Moto, something that does not necessarily have to be better. They both record 4K video at 30fps. In front of the camera of the Neo is 32 megapixels, and the Edge 25 megapixels.
Battery, connectivity and software
Here are some differences, the OPPO with a 4025mAh battery and the 4500mAh Edge. In the case of the first with a faster fast charge, 30W, while in the Motorola it is 18W.
Both have NFC and USB Type-C connectors. And of course Android 10, one under ColorOS and the other under Motorola’s minimum layer, which is one of the least invasive on the market. Both have Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac and bluetooth 5.1.
Price and conclusion
The truth is that both phones offer us very similar characteristics in many aspects, although different prices. Currently the OPPO Find X2 Neo you can buy it for 665 euros on Amazon while the Edge costs 509 euros. This difference is already enough to see the Motorola Edge as a better purchase. This cost from start 599 euros, and the OPPO 699 euros.
Buy OPPO Find X2 Neo
Buy Motorola Edge
At current prices we think the Motorola is the best option, with its showy curved screen, somewhat excessive perhaps, its same 5G processor and a fairly competent camera. From the OPPO it must be recognized that it has double the RAM and storage, as well as a faster charging battery, otherwise it is quite similar to the Edge. Therefore the Edge is now a good purchase for its price, but equal to this, we would choose the OPPO.
