2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good build quality, premium looks with a glass back
  • Decent fingerprint scanners in the rear
  • The glass back is prone to scratching (as all glass backs are)

Display

  • Modern, tall, 18:9 display with slimmed-down bezels - it's fairly bright and vivid
  • The display could have had better resolution

Software

  • 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

Performance

  • 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

Camera

  • Decent rear camera in favorable lighting conditions
  • Video recording is decent too with reasonably good stabilisation
  • Average front camera

Audio

  • Call quality is pretty good too
  • Average loudspeaker - both loudness and audio quality could have been a bit better

Battery

  • 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
  • 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

More

  • Water-repellence – a feature that can help at least some with minor splashes (but does not make the phones submersible in water)
  • A bit on the heavy side
