Motorola Moto E4 review

 

Motorola makes wonderful budget phones like the Moto G5 and the G5 Plus . Its newest addition is the Moto E4 which packs a lot of features: Android Nougat 7.1, a fingerprint sensor, a removeable battery and a selfie flash all within a body the size of...

The Moto E4 has a near stock version of Android Nougat, a fingerprint reader, a removeable battery, a selfie flash and is splash resistant -- all while being ridiculously cheap.

The display is hard to see in sunlight and the camera is slow to process photos.

The Moto E4 is the cheapest Motorola phone but doesn't compromise too much on its amenities.

Motorola Moto E4

 

The Android-powered Motorola Moto E4 offers smooth performance and lots of features for a bargain price.

Highly affordable. Current software. Fingerprint sensor, dual-band Wi-Fi, removable battery, and expandable storage. Smooth performance.

Mediocre camera. Limited internal storage.

For $130 unlocked (and $70 on Verizon), the Motorola Moto E4 is solid phone for a reasonable price. The Blu R1 HD will cost you a bit less, but it's not quite as fast and runs an old version of Android, not to mention it doesn't have dual-band Wi-Fi or...

Motorola Moto E4 budget smartphones

Motorola Moto E4 Review

 

The Moto E series hit the scene in mid-2014, quick on the heels of the Moto G's success in the mid-range market. While the G series has offered solid, though intermediate, hardware at less than half the cost of high-end flagships, the E series was...

Very competitive pricing ; Solid build quality ; Excellent fingerprint sensor adds value ; Capable internals handle multi-tasking needs with only occasional hiccups

Camera is unpredictable and generally produces noisy images ; Display lacks detail, sometimes shows a bluish tint

At the entry-level price-point, the name of the game is value – possibly more so than any other category. In a mobile landscape where flagships regularly push the $1000 mark, the disparity in price has never been greater. Fortunately, less money...

Review: Motorola Moto E4 for Verizon Wireless

 

Motorola's entry-level Android handset, the Moto E4, may be small in stature, but it's big on performance. The E4 is an affordable phone that includes a fingerprint reader, a 5-inch screen, and a capable camera. If you're in the market for an everyday...

The Moto E4 is not the most exciting handset in the world, but it does everything well. The hardware is inexpensive without being "cheap"; the screen is bright and colorful; battery life is solid; and data/voice performance was quite good. Some people...

Motorola Moto E4 Review: A brilliant budget blower

 

Packing some surprising specs for a low price, the Moto E4 from Motorola is one of the best value smartphones we've reviewed in some time.If you're after an affordable handset to replace your old mobile…

Metal finish ; Satisfying UI ; Sharp display

Limited performance ; Basic camera

The Moto E4 delivers solid value for money, coming in cheaper than pretty much any other mobile by a well-known manufacturer. Despite that low asking price you still get HD visuals, a neat metal design, dependable battery life and performance that...

Great product

 

Bought this phone and didn't expect it to be as good as what it is for the price!! I love it! Compared to my old phone, which was £300 worth of phone, this Motorola is ten times better just on performance and features. Made up! Highly recommend.
