Motorola Moto E4 Plus

 

The Motorola Moto E4 Plus is an affordable, well-built phone with a big battery that will last for well over a day of use.

Long battery life. Sturdy build. Compatible with all US carriers. Recent Android software.

Occasionally slow performance. Low-light images could be better. Screen resolution isn't the sharpest.

The Moto E4 Plus is our low-end battery champ, beating beefy competitors like the LG X Power on endurance. But the added cost of the big battery puts the E4 Plus in a slightly awkward place. At $180 unlocked (or even at $130 on a carrier), it comes...

Motorola Moto E4 Plus Smartphone Review

 

Simple addition. More battery, more RAM, more display - Motorola really means the "Plus" in its Moto E4 Plus. Find out whether these positive aspects outweigh the rather low system performance in our review.

good battery runtime ; pure Android ; good handling ; quick-charge function ; color-accurate display ; very stable case ; hardly any heat development

heavy ; occasional juddering and lags ; rather low performance ; microphone records ambient noise

If you are thinking about whether you should buy a Moto E4 or a Moto E4 Plus, there is a clear answer. The Moto E4 Plus offers a lot of improvements for only about $60 more, offering a camera with higher resolution, longer battery runtimes, a...

Moto E4 Plus Review : The Never-ending Battery

 

The Moto E4 Plus Review we've got on deck today rolls through the basics of its hardware and software and offers judgement on its overall value. While the hardware is decent - especially for this price - it's within the long-lasting battery that this...

High quality software build ; Reliability in steadfast brand ; Well designed hardware ; Aesthetically pleasing ; Price is more than reasonable

Display is 720p ; Unlikely there'll be 3rd-party cases ; No NFC

Now that the Moto E4 Plus is ready to roll in the United States, we’ve got an interesting price/value proposition on our hands. Straight from Motorola online this device is available for $179, no strings attached. As such, this device is quite easily...

Moto e4 Plus Prime Edition review: Monster battery will get you through your day

 

If you're looking for a budget phone with a monster battery then look no further than the Moto e4 Plus Amazon Prime Edition.

Huge 5,000mAh battery gets you through the day and then some ; Decent display ; Good software experience if you can deal with Amazon extras ; Great price for what you get

Design is a bit bland, same Moto aesthetic ; Camera could be better

If you’re looking for a decent performing budget phone with massive battery life then the Moto e4 Plus is an excellent choice. If camera performance is more important then look elsewhere. If you’re just looking for a basic, decent performing smartphone...

Motorola Moto E4 Plus Review

 

With the introduction of this year's Moto E4, Motorola added a Plus variant, with a higher-resolution camera sensor and a massive, 5,000 mAh battery. It seems that, for the first time in the line's existence, it may have its own heavy-hitter all while...

Long battery life ; Mostly stock Android experience ; Pleasant design, sturdy build ; Quick and accurate fingerprint scanner

Gets slow at times ; Poor camera ; Low display resolution

Moto E4 Plus review: An economical smartphone for those who only care about battery life

 

The Moto E4 Plus is one of the many smartphones aimed at dominating the low end of the smartphone market. Currently priced at $179 for an unlocked version, and compatible with nearly all US carriers, it has to be a bargain, right?

Amazing battery life ; Fingerprint sensor is reliable

Slow performance ; Camera's are just OK ; Fairly thick

Review: Motorola Moto E4 Plus

 

Motorola's latest budget handset is the battery-busting Moto E4 Plus. This phone has one of the longest-lasting batteries we've tested this year. If you're in the market for an affordable Android smartphone that keeps going and going and going, the E4...

As long as you don't mind the larger and heavier footprint, the Moto E4 Plus delivers huge gains in battery life and camera quality. These make it a better option than the E4 in my eyes, despite the cost and size differences.

Moto E4 Plus review: basic with a massive battery

 

Motorola is back with the latest additions to its E series, the Moto E4 and E4 Plus. The E4 Plus goes beyond the basics with a massive battery and a nice design, at a price point that pits it against the Moto G5 Plus. Check out our full review here to...

Fingerprint reader ; Long battery life ; Solid construction

Slow performance at times ; Small internal storage ; No USB Type-C

I was quite pleased to have the opportunity to review a new Moto E, even more so since this version brings a few attractive additions, like a 5,000 mAh battery. And though I’m not a fan of the new design that Motorola is using on their devices this...

Moto E4 Plus review

 

Extra battery on a budget phone

Huge battery ; Fingerprint scanner ; Premium feel for budget phone

Limited power ; Iffy camera ; Relatively heavy

The Moto E4 Plus comes with much better battery life than both its cheaper sibling, the Moto E4, and the more expensive Moto G5, but if you’re after for a more powerful phone with a Full HD screen you may be better off going for the G5 despite its...
