Moto e4 Plus – A Budget phone with awesome battery life!

Motorola has had its share of ups and downs down the years, but there is no arguing the top quality smartphones they have come up with the Motorola G series was a great entry smartphone range for the price, then they came up with their Turbo and Maxx smartphones which packed with great hardware, Most recently they ventured into the modular phone domain with the Moto Z line up. They were one of the two major OEM’s (other was LG) who took the brave step to get into this category. After Lenovo acquired Motorola, they have come back to Pakistan and have brought with them a few contenders for the mid range category namely the Moto M and the Moto E series. One of them is the Moto E4 Plus, which comes with a massive 5000 mAh battery. The Moto E4 Plus has a big 5.5 inch (1280×720) HD IPS LCD Display which is wrapped around a metal body. The display even though only 720p is good enough and you will enjoy watching videos on YouTube or play games on it. Plus with the resolution being lower it consumes less energy as well, which means more battery life. It is water repellent too which is a great plus considering you would like to take your phone with you to the toilet. On the flip side the display does not get too bright, so outdoor visibility in bright sunlight gets a bit difficult. Just below the display lies the fingerprint scanner, which doubles as a home button as well if required. Otherwise there are on display navigation keys. The fingerprint scanner is quick and was able to recognize my fingers 85% of the time, it became a bit tricky when my fingers were sweaty, otherwise it performed quite well. The best part about the fingerprint scanner is that, not only you can unlock your device, but lock back the device too. This is a great feature especially for people who don’t like to keep pressing the power button. While we are on the hardware part of things the Moto E4 Plus comes with great and I mean great speakers. Coupled with the Dolby Atmos software built in, it provides loud and crisp sound. To, check out the power of the speakers check out its video on our YouTube channel. Under the hood lies a 1.3 GHz Cortex A-53 Quad-core MediaTek processor which is not the most powerful processor around, but it will run all of your everyday apps. Though, if you are into heavy gaming, then you might feel a slight lag while playing graphic intensive game. Thanks to the 3GB RAM, the lag wasn’t...
