2-minute Review [Positives] N/A
  • Good build quality, premium looks with a glass back
  • Water-repellence – a feature that can help at least some with minor splashes (but does not make the phones submersible in water)
  • Decent fingerprint scanners in the rear
  • Modern, tall, 18:9 display with slimmed-down bezels - it's fairly bright and vivid
  • In typical Moto fashion, the Moto E5 Plus run a clean, bloat-free version of Android, with minimal useful add-ons like Moto Display, Moto Actions, and Night Mode
  • Decent day-to-day performance - for light workloads, the phone will sail through just fine - multitasking switches quickly, and apps launch in a timely manner
  • Decent rear camera in favorable lighting conditions
  • Video recording is decent too with reasonably good stabilisation
  • Call quality is pretty good too
  • Excellent battery life - with a 5000mAh battery, the E5 Plus is a road warrior, and can last you up to 2 days with moderate use, before you need to charge it again
  • Fast charging support (TurboCharge) - the phone gets from 0 to 50% in about an hour
2-minute Review [Negatives] N/A
  • A bit on the heavy side
  • The glass back is prone to scratching (as all glass backs are)
  • The display could have had better resolution
  • Average front camera
  • Average loudspeaker - both loudness and audio quality could have been a bit better
  • The Moto E5 Plus is a decent phone by itself, and is a especially good choice if you value battery life above all else, but other devices from Xiaomi, Asus, Realme in this price bracket will likely be better overall deals
