Reviews for the Lenovo Moto E4

Removable. In this case we mean it in a positive way, since the battery can be removed in the Moto E4. The smartphone is also quite affordable and offers a fingerprint sensor. You can find out in the test whether the competition needs to brace for this.
Moto E4 — A great, low-cost phone for everyone
Source: Ausdroid English
The Moto E4 is cheap at $249, and can be found in a number of places including JB HiFi, Harvey Norman, Good Guys, Officeworks, and online from www.motorola.com.au. At that price, you’re hard pressed to buy something locally that offers better value.

The New Moto E4 is a budget-friendly Nougat machine (review)
Source: Android Guys English
Overall I really like the new Moto E4. It’s not a specification beast like some phones, but at the end of the day, you generally won’t feel left wanting. And you’ll still have almost enough to pay next month’s rent, to boot!

The Moto E4 raises the bar for phones hovering around the $100 mark. Complete with a fingerprint sensor, Android Nougat, a swappable battery and reliable performance, this phone gets its kicks by surprising the user at nearly every turn. A must-buy for those on a budget.

It seems that Motorola has once again succeeded in building reliability and capability into an offering equipped with the basics of what we expect in smartphones today – doing so in one very budget-friendly package.

80% Moto E4 Review: Verizon’s best cheap phone
Source: Slashgear English
This is the sort of smartphone that a person gets when they’ve never used a smartphone before. Or if they’ve only used a Windows Phone device before – or an iPhone 4 or older. If a person has a smartphone they’ve used for the past 6 years and they don’t want to switch to anything fancy, they just want another phone that works and doesn’t have a cracked screen – this is that phone.

60% Moto E4 Review: Decent Budget Phone Has One Huge Flaw
Source: Tom's Guide English
If you have more money to play with, the $230 Moto G5 Plus has a better camera and longer battery life with a more impressive display. (And Amazon Prime members can get that phone for less than $200 if they don’t mind ads popping up on their lockscreen.) Still, with its bright display, updated Android and decent enough-camera, the Moto E4 is a solid device that’s better than any sub-$100 phone has a right to be.

80% Motorola Moto E4
Source: PC Mag English
For $130 unlocked (and $70 on Verizon), the Motorola Moto E4 is solid phone for a reasonable price. The Blu R1 HD will cost you a bit less, but it's not quite as fast and runs an old version of Android, not to mention it doesn't have dual-band Wi-Fi or a removable battery. The same goes for the Alcatel A30. Motorola's own G5 Plus is a good alternative if you want a big performance boost across the board, but it also costs more than twice the price of the Moto E4. For its combination of price and performance, the Moto E4 can't be beat, and earns our Editors' Choice.

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.


73.58%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
