Motorola and MediaTek win the Generation Trust Again

Motorola is known for its efficient devices with amazing features at an affordable price.

The Moto E4 Plus was launched in India on Wednesday, and the company announced that it will be made accessible for Rs. 9,999 on Flipkart. The Moto E4 smartphone was also launched officially at the event, although it has been open for sale offline since last month. The Moto E4 is priced at Rs. 8,999. I managed to get our hands on both new Moto E4 models at the launch event, and here are our first impressions.

Moto E4 Plus

There are a few discrepancies between the two models. The Moto E4 Plus has a 5.5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) screen while the Moto E4 features a 5-inch HD screen. Due to the variation in size but not resolution, the Moto E4’s display looks crisper than that of its larger sibling. The biggest highlight of the Moto E4 Plus is its massive 5000mAh battery, while its smaller sibling has a 2800mAh unit.

Moving on to other specifications, the Moto E4 Plus has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage while the Moto E4 packs 2GB and 16GB respectively. Storage is expandable using a microSD card on both models.

Both smartphones run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. In our time with both models, we didn’t scout any major issues with their performance, and both were able to function smoothly. However, we only had limited time with them, and the units on display only had the basic preinstalled apps.

The Moto E4 Plus’s larger battery and screen make it taller and thicker, measuring 155x77.5x9.55mm and showing 181 grams.

However, neither of them is tough to hold and use. That brings us to the ‘Moto One Key Navigation’ feature.

The model has Home buttons on the front with embedded fingerprint scanners, and you can perform navigation gestures across them to make it easier to navigate through the Android interface with one hand.

While this feature can be useful in many situations, it might not be easy for everyone to get used to.

It is the best phone in the market.
