2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good looking design language, excellent build quality
  • Back cover is made of a textured, soft touch plastic that provides a good hand-feel
  • The phone is also very comfortable to hold, thanks to its slight 150 gram weight, and narrow enough to use with one hand
  • The fingerprint sensor on the front works about as well as any from Motorola
  • Motorola's software, continues to be one of the best close-to-stock Android UIs in the business - with excellent add-ons like Moto Display, and Moto Actions
  • Decent speed/performance - handles most daily tasks without breaking a sweat
  • Pretty decent rear and front camera for the price bracket - image quality in good lighting is especially good - and even in poor lighting, the phone manages to eke some decent shots
  • Replaceable battery - something that is not that common in modern day smartphones
  • Splash resistant
  • On the whole, while the E4 is not amazing in any one aspect, it is a pretty solid, dependable budget smartphone
  • Pleasant design, sturdy build
  • Quick and accurate fingerprint scanner
  • Mostly simple, stock Android experience, and the few software-addons that Motorola does add (Moto Display, Moto Actions) are always useful
  • Decent performance in daily basic use (although anything more than that will make it struggle)
  • Excellent battery life - comfortably lasts 2 days with moderate use - you can leave your charger at home!
  • Splash resistant
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The display is average, with slightly washed-out colors, and there are better phone displays available in this price bracket
  • The camera is a little slow to process photos
  • Battery life is ok, but could have been better - with moderate to heavy use, you might not find the phone lasting the whole work day
  • Display resolution definitely could have been better
  • Gets slow at times, when pushed with heavy apps - so its basically meant for casual use (think email/WhatsApp/Social Networking)
  • Average camera - pictures are sometimes fuzzy even in well-lit conditions
