Review: Motorola Moto E4 Plus
As long as you don't mind the larger and heavier footprint, the Moto E4 Plus delivers huge gains in battery life and camera quality. These make it a better option than the E4 in my eyes, despite the cost and size differences.
Motorola didn't do anything to spice up the phone's design, but the rear panel has some new metal that I like. The large screen is nice and bright, while wireless and voice performance were above average for this class of device. The battery life — close to two days — is killer, and reason enough to buy this phone. The E4 Plus outlasts most other phones on the market right now.
Motorola's version of Android (close to stock) is about as good as it gets. The E4 Plus may not have the crazy advanced software you'll see from LG and Samsung, but the simpler build of Android makes the E4 Plus easier to use day in and day out. Toss in the highly capable camera app and imaging results, and you have a winner on your hands.
