Reviews for the Motorola Moto E20

74.9% Motorola Moto E20 smartphone review - Lightweight phone in honeycomb design | Notebookcheck
Motorola's Moto E20 offers good performance and a low weight for less than 100 Euros. On the other hand, you have to make concessions in areas such as battery life. Is the inexpensive smartphone really worth it?
60% Motorola Moto E20 Review

The Moto E20 is extremely cheap and solidly built, and Motorola’s software is as blissfully clean as ever. However, the poor quality of the phone’s display and the generally sluggish level of performance are difficult to ignore, regardless of price. As always, the real value in the smartphone market can be found somewhere north of the £100 mark.

Comment

Model:

Motorola has expertise in launching some blockbuster smartphones at a time that has carved its name into the smartphone world. The latest from the company this year would be the Motorola Moto E20 which is perhaps Motorola’s most affordable device. Since it has such a low price, there may be some limitations, as expected. As far as its design is concerned, Moto E20 comes with a layout that is rather simple rather than being attractive. It comes in two colour variants namely blue and grey. Having a plastic frame, the back panel looks a bit unique with the pattern types. Basically, it has a rounded corner and holding the phone can be quite comfortable. There is also a dual camera built-in beautifully along with an LED flash. In addition, there is a fingerprint sensor and a brand logo which highlights the beauty of the brand. It is worth noting that the phone comes in with a water-repellent coating. However, Motorola has not equipped this model with Gorilla glass.

In terms of its display, the phone is equipped with a 6.5 inches IPS screen with 720p resolution. This choice has been proven to be a valuable choice in a low-budget section. There is definitely absence of some notable features in this phone such as the refresh rate and adequate brightness. While there is a resolution of 720p, the density of 270 PPI is definitely not enough to provide good quality visuals. It might turn out to be disappointing to expect a decent visual impression with this device. It is worth mentioning that the growing demand for faster performance will not allow this phone to be a favourable choice for gamers or smartphone addicts due to its performance. This device comes with a basic Unisoc T606 chipset that runs at unexpectedly low standards. In addition, the Octa-core processor does not guarantee better performance either as it only offers 1.6 GHz of maximum clock speed. It is undeniable that the brand has launched a phone with an attractive price tag, but that does not mean it has the ability to compete with the alternatives. However, the Mali-G57 MC2 graphics unit becomes less standard with at least one good enough addition. Apart from that, the phone comes in with a 2GB RAM and 32GB storage variant, which again is quite low capacity.

Talking about the cameras, Motorola Moto E20 carries a dual-sensor with a 13 MP primary camera. It includes autofocus mode which might open the expectation for some valuable photos that are good for social media. However, there is definitely no room to experiment as compared to other phones out there. Well, the 2 MP macro camera is the only thing that sets this phone apart. While this is a nice addition, this feature is also available on other devices. But it is still useful to capture some better close-ups. As for its battery, it is quite difficult to get a full day’s worth of power with a Li-Po 4000 mAh battery in this phone. It is a good phone for its price but might not be the best though.

ARM Mali-G57 MP2: Integrated mid range graphics card with 2 clusters. Based on the Valhall architecture.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

T606: Entry level octa core SoC with two fast ARM Cortex A75 cores at up to 1.6 GHz and six power efficient ARM Cortex A55 cores at up to 1.6 GHz. The SoC furthermore includes a LTE modem (TDD-LTE, FDD-LTE, TDSCDMA, WCDMA, CDMA, GSM), an ARM Mali G52MP2 GPU and a tri core ISP. The chip is manufactured at TSMC in 12nm FinFET.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.50":

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

Motorola: Founded in 1928, the US-based company mainly focuses on communication technology such as smartphones. The original company Motorola Inc was split up in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone division and was taken over by Google in 2012 and Lenovo in 2014.

The company is known for its cell phones and other electronic devices such as smartwatches, tablets and accessories. Motorola was one of the first companies to produce cell phones, and in recent years has also innovated in the areas of 5G technology and modular smartphones (Moto Mods). Motorola is also active in public safety and professional communications, providing solutions for government agencies, businesses and other organizations. The company has operations in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America and employs more than 10,000 people worldwide. 


64.97%: Such a poor rating is rare. There are only a few notebooks that were rated even worse. The rating websites do not give a purchase recommendation here.
