- Two-day battery life
- Modern design
- Large 6-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio
- Great performance
- Lots of bloatware
- Camera performance in low light is terrible
- Will not get Android P update
The Moto E5 Plus follows design cues from recent Motorola phones such as the and the refining slightly over last year’s model. There’s a bigger 6-inch screen to start, a glossy polymer rear that imitates glass-back phones, and a fingerprint sensor on the back
The Moto E5 Plus is powered by the processor with 3GB of RAM. There’s 32GB of internal storage, though a MicroSD card slot allows you to add extra space up to 128GB.
3.POOR LOW-LIGHT CAMERA
The Moto E5 Plus packs a 12-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a f/2.0 aperture. On the front is an 8-megapixel sensor with a f/2.2 aperture. The camera is nothing remarkable — it performs well in daylight, but as with most budget phones, it struggles in low light. Struggles may not be harsh enough of a word, though, because we’ve found the E5 Plus’ low-light photos to mostly be unusable
4.CHUNKY 5,000MAH BATTERY
The Moto E5 Plus has an enormous 5,000mAh battery, and Motorola claims the battery should last for 36 hours with regular use. The claim is mostly accurate.
5.PRICE, AVAILABILITY, AND WARRANTY INFORMATION
The Moto E5 Plus is only available through Cricket Wireless and Sprint at the moment, though it will likely come to more carriers later this year. On Cricket, it costs $180; if you’re on Sprint it will set you back $288.Motorola offers a standard one-year warranty that protects against manufacturer defects.
The Moto E5 Plus is a good-looking budget phone with solid performance, simple software, and two-day battery life. Its camera is poor compared to the competition, and you shouldn’t pay more than $200 for it.
