Simple addition. More battery, more RAM, more display - Motorola really means the "Plus" in its Moto E4 Plus. Find out whether these positive aspects outweigh the rather low system performance in our review.
Moto E4 Plus Review – Better Battery Life At a Low Price?
Source: Manila Shaker English
For a budget phone, the Moto E4 Plus looks and feels pretty good at emulating a premium phone. Sure, it doesn’t have spectacular features and remains a basic phone at best, but if you’re looking for a phone that will help you last for more than a day, the Moto E4 Plus has enough battery life to help you do so.

55% Moto E4 Plus review: An economical smartphone for those who only care about battery life
Source: Zdnet.com English
Overall, the Moto Z2 Force Edition is a solid Android smartphone at a price less than the flagships. There are other compelling smartphones at the same or lower price so you really have to like using one or two Moto Mods to justify the Z2 Force Edition.

80% Motorola Moto E4 Plus

The Moto E4 Plus is our low-end battery champ, beating beefy competitors like the LG X Power on endurance. But the added cost of the big battery puts the E4 Plus in a slightly awkward place. At $180 unlocked (or even at $130 on a carrier), it comes very close to the $185 Amazon Prime subsidized entry-level price for the Moto G5 Plus, which has a noticeably better screen and faster processor.

Source: The Mobile Indian English

On the downside, the phone is powered by an old processor which might affect its overall performance. As for the competition is concerned, the smartphone will compete against, Xiaomi Redmi 4, Lenovo K6 Power, Coolpad Note 5, and Xiaomi Redmi 4.

It's a tough job to criticize a $180 handset. The Moto E4 Plus' display is certainly not perfect, its camera leaves a lot to be desired, its performance is only good for basic smartphone tasks. But one can justifiably argue that for this price, the Moto E4 does a good job as a basic smartphone.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


73.51%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
