Motorola's E4 is inexpensive and not without its compromises, but provides a fair value smartphone experience for the price.
- Clean Android interface
- Fingerprint sensor
- Slow camera
- Ordinary app performance
Motorola's taken its Moto G recipe and honed it for the Moto E4 with pleasing results.
Motorola has its plays in the premium space, mostly around its Moto Mod compatible Z series phones, but its bread and butter offerings are in the budget to mid-range space. The Motorola E4 is solidly in the budget space, and that very much defines the kind of smartphone you're likely to get.
However, as we've seen an increasing number of mid-range devices creep towards premium status in terms of features and style, the budget space has also improved, meaning that you're often putting up with fewer compromises in devices. There's lots of budget competition out there, so how does the Motorola E4 compare?
- Small and light
- Removable battery
- Ridged power button
- Simple single lens
- Rather slow to focus
- Mediatek MT6737 processor
- Slow but acceptable at its price point
- Clean Google experience
- Removable battery
- Good but not great battery life
- A good upgrade handset for existing Moto owners
