About the Phone
The sturdy and premium-looking Moto E4 Plus is a capable handset. It comes with a humongous battery which offers a battery life that high-end phone struggles to achieve. Plus, it has a good set of cameras which can capture your bright memories with accurate colours.
Moto E4 Plus comes with one of the biggest batteries present in the smartphone market. At a massive capacity of 5,000 mAh, this battery can easily keep pumping juice for two days. Even with intensive use, this battery can keep up for more than a day which is impressive considering most phones give up before a day could end. On top of that, E4 Plus arrives with fast charging, which is a necessary modification going at par with the modern flagship phones.
Moto E4 Plus has a reasonable camera. While the low-light images suffer which is expected at this range, it has a high aperture size which takes in enough light to keep the photos bright and vivid. The images captured on this phone is sharp and comes with acceptable resolution.
Moto E4 Plus does not have the best performance, but it is decent and paired with great design, powerful battery, and decent cameras – it is value for the money. For anyone looking for a long-lasting phone, Moto E4 Plus is the way to go.
Motorola understands the need for juice, and so, they have come up with the Moto E4 Plus – an astonishing product that can break the market of high-end phones with its affordable price and outstanding battery. Priced at Rs. 9,990, Moto E4 Plus is a handset that seems to have a battery that lasts forever.
Heavy and thick, Moto E4 may look old, but the reason is clear – it’s the bulk of the non-removable battery that’s pressing on your hand. While it comes with decent hardware, the battery-life of Moto E4 Plus stands out. It is a satisfying handset that is well-suited for budget users.
The Moto E4 Plus has a full metal encasing which gives a premium look to it that is not as easily replicated by other affordable flagships. It is comfortable to hold and manage due to the curved back though it is not lightweight at 198g. It is a compromise due to the massive battery that the phone is equipped with. It is also quite thick at 9.3mm, but that adds to the sturdiness of the phone. On the top, it has a 3.5mm headphone jack and the below the screen lies the snappy fingerprint reader which works efficiently and fast. Despite the chunkiness, the phone does not look ugly from any angle.
Moto E4 Plus has a 5.5-inch HD (720p) display. It provides 267 pixels per inch so you would not be able to spot pixels that easily. However, it is not as high as its predecessors like Moto G5 and G4 Plus which has higher levels of resolution. Despite having a low resolution, the Moto E4 Plus has a bright display which can help you with your cinematic experience, though it would not be as immersive as expected. The plus side is that the lower resolution keeps the juice from not getting drained away fast.
Moto E4 Plus is powered by MediaTek MT6737 chipset which had previously struggled with Nokia 3. While it is optimized and clocked at 1.3GHz, it is not a powerhouse. It works with a 3GB RAM and can handle apps easily but loading up too many apps at the same time can lead to slower loading times. Undemanding games run smoothly, but graphics-heavy games will falter spoiling the expected gaming experience.
Moto E4 Plus has a rear 13MP camera with a high aperture of f/2.0 which is not that great as expected. It provides reasonable images, and the high aperture captures a lot of light making the images bright. The colours are vivid though it could have been a lot sharper. However, they have an acceptable resolution.
Low-light photos, however, suffer in Moto E4 Plus. The details are not great, and the pictures struggle to keep its brightness when there is no ample light present. The camera quality drops a lot despite the aperture’s ability to capture more light. The cameras turn out to be quite limited.
Moto E4 Plus has a 5MP selfie camera featuring an LED flash. It produces beautiful photos, but it remains limited in its capabilities and is not a great shooter.
Video shooting is limited up to 720p, but there is a noticeable lag especially after pressing the button and the beginning of the recording.
Moto E4 Plus’ mammoth-like 5,000 mAh battery is its main highlight. It is made for intensive use and can last for more than a day. Moderate use can make it last for two-days easily on a single charge. It also comes with fast charging which significantly lowers the charging time. Normal charging would take a staggering 3 hours to get from 0% to 100%, but it is expected from a huge battery that Moto E4 Plus comes equipped with.
Moto E4 Plus has the humongous battery as its main highlight. It looks good, but the other internals fails to match up with the good looks and fantastic battery. It does not have a good processor which delivers quite an average performance, and the cameras on this phone are sub-par. They are serious issues that make this phone a difficult recommendation to make. This phone is suitable for people who are always finding them in a battery crisis – Moto E4 Plus will have you covered. However, for better specs, Moto G5 is a better choice though there is a need to bump up the budget for it.
