The budget phone is now available in India for ₹9,999, or about USD $150. Packing a quad-core MediaTek MTK6737M and a massive 5,000 mAh battery, the phone runs Android 7.1.1 and may quickly become the budget-phone king.

The Moto E line, which is Motorola’s budget-oriented smartphone brand, has been moderately successful here in the States but has found a much larger crowd outside of America, especially in the developing world. The Moto E4 was released globally just recently, but Motorola has just launched an upgraded version, the Moto E4 Plus, in India.

For an additional ₹1,000 (about $15.51 at the time of this writing), the phone has a modest spec bump. The Moto E4 Plus has the same quad-core MediaTek MTK6737 CPU and Mali-T720 GPU combo as its lilliputian brother, an extra gigabyte of RAM (3 GB total), and a base storage option of 32 GB (compared to 16 GB on the standard Moto E4). The headline of the show here, however, is the massive 5,000 mAh battery. This is almost double the capacity of the regular Moto E4’s 2800 mAh battery and should result in some serious runtimes. Screen size is also increased to 5.5 inches, although it retains the same 1280x720 resolution. The camera has also been bumped to 13 MP from the 8 MP shooter on the standard E4. The phone also runs the latest version of Android, 7.1.1 Nougat, with a near-stock experience (save for Moto’s immensely useful additions, like the twist gesture to launch the camera).

The non-plus Moto E4 has already been praised for its excellent battery life, so the E4 Plus should be a battery powerhouse. It’s interesting that Motorola is releasing the Plus for a mere ₹1,000 more than the standard Moto E4, which equates to about $15. The E4 Plus offers much better specs for a very slight price increase, making it almost a no-brainer. No word on when (or if) the E4 Plus will make its way stateside, but this may quickly become the budget smartphone king.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
