Offering some of the best bang for your buck phones on the market, the Moto E4 Plus by Motorola is a solid midrange smartphone that performs well in a variety of tasks but doesn't particularly excel in any one area.
For budgeters who want a quality Android phone that delivers well on all the essentials you have come to expect from a phone, you won't be disappointed with the Moto E4 Plus. Let's review some of the most important features that come with the phone.
If you constantly find yourself with a dead phone or rushing to an electrical outlet to save those precious minutes of battery life remaining, then the Moto E4 Plus will be your saving grace. With a 5000 mAH non-removable battery, you're guaranteed a longer usage time than nearly every other device on the market.
Through some estimates, you can expect the Moto E4 Plus to give you up to 48 hours of dedicated usage time, and nearly 33 days of standby time. Forget your phone at home before going on a weeklong vacation in Aruba? No worries--you can pick up right where you left off with battery to spare.
With such a colossal battery, you'll be able to put it to use on the many things you can do on the Moto E4 Plus. The 5.5" HD display is bright and clear, suitable for navigating between windows or watching videos. The 720x1280 pixel screen is a tad low-resolution compared to more modern smartphones and the large screen size falters when it comes to precise details and color correction.
The Moto E4 Plus has some solid specs too. With 3GB of RAM, you can quickly launch and switch between apps without much stutter. The device can be a little sluggish when loading intensive social media apps, but it never gets to the point of annoyance. With 16GB of onboard storage and room for more from a microSD card, you'll have plenty of space for fun.
A great point about the Moto E4 Plus is that it boots up with a near stock version of Android's Nougat software. There are a few preloaded apps and widgets from Motorola and Verizon, but they aren't too obtrusive. Moto Actions, one of the preloaded add-ons, is actually quite intuitive to use. It enables you to flick your hand or finger in little gestures which act as shortcuts for functions. There are a few shortcuts already programmed, but you can customize it to your needs from the Settings menu.
