Motorola Moto E5 Smartphone Review

 

Larger E. The Motorola Moto E5 offers a large screen and large battery at a small price. However, for about 130 Euros (~$149; usually $100 in the US, currently on sale for $70) you can also get some good deals from other manufacturers. We find out in...

bright display ; performance is typical for the price class ; decent GPS ; acceptable cameras ; good battery life

aging security patches and system version ; slow WLAN

A bright screen, good battery life, decent performance, and reasonable cameras: The Motorola Moto E5 offers several good reasons to adopt it as your future smartphone. On the other hand, current software, a good camera performance in bad light...

Motorola Moto e5 range, First Take: A tale of three budget handsets | ZDNet

 

Two of Motorola's three e5 smartphones show what can be achieved at the affordable end of the market, while the third arguably sacrifices too much in pursuit of an attractive price point.

Motorola Moto E5 review: Is one of the cheapest phones in Motorola's Moto line also one of the best? Or should you spend a bit more?

Low price ; Solid screen ; Excellent battery life

Sluggish day-to-day performance ; Moto G6 Play is better value

Moto E5 review

 

A lot of features for little money

Big screen ; Good endurance ; Solid, durable build

Poor camera ; Mediocre performance ; Reportedly no software updates

This svelte budget offering has curves and specifications in all of the right places and offers up a solid user experience. Issues with performance and a mediocre camera prevent it from being an instant recommendation however, despite the excellent price.

Moto E5: Full, in-depth, review

 

Though there's plenty to like about the Moto E5 on its own merits, it falls short when stacked up against last year's E4.

Great price ; Solid battery life

Uneven performance ; Average camera

Motorola Moto E5 review: A whole lot of phone for not much cash

 

The Moto E5 has a great screen, superb camera and amazing battery life — it's a whole lot of phone for not much money

Great screen quality ; The best camera in a sub-£150 phone ; Long battery life

Sluggish-feeling performance

Performance is slow, which is reason enough to consider saving an extra £30 and buying a Moto G6 Play instead, however, considering how good it is in other areas, I’m just about ready to forgive it for its sluggishness. Ultimately, you’re getting a...

Moto E5 and E5 Plus review: Hands-on with Motorola’s cheapest smartphones

 

The Moto E5 and E5 Plus are lighter on features than the Moto G6 phones but they have their own appeal

It hardly matters how quick the Moto E5 and E5 Plus are or, indeed, how good or bad the cameras are, or that they don’t have water repellency. They are budget handsets after all.
