The good

  • Clean Android interface
  • Fingerprint sensor

The bad

  • 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?

Design

  • Small and light
  • Removable battery
  • Ridged power button

      Hi Sandra,

      Thank you for reaching out to finder.

      Yes, your phone would work in Australia using an Aussie sim as long as the phone has been unlocked. This will give the phone the ability to connect with any network. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie
