Reviews for the Motorola Moto E5

Motorola Moto e5 range, First Take: A tale of three budget handsets
Source: English
We have two key observations from this tale of three handsets, the first of which is that it's very difficult to deliver an effective smartphone for under £100. The £89 Moto e5 Play is likely to leave purchasers hankering for more fairly quickly.

It's a shame it's not more responsive in use, but the Moto E5 gives you the best camera and screen you'll see at this price.

This svelte budget offering has curves and specifications in all of the right places and offers up a solid user experience. Issues with performance and a mediocre camera prevent it from being an instant recommendation however, despite the excellent price.

Though there’s plenty to like about the Moto E5 on its own merits, it falls short when stacked up against last year’s E4.

80% Motorola e5 – a lot of phone for little money (review)
Source: Gadgetguy English
It is undeniably a value class handset. If offers build quality above that, so it is a safe buy. The Motorola e5 ticks every box in the value segment and then some. It is stellar value in this segment.

The Moto E5 has exceptional design and build quality making it feel like a much more expensive handset. And that's just for starters. You get a great screen, decent battery life, a good camera and even a fingerprint scanner to boot.

Moto E5 review: Hands-on
Source: PC Advisor English
We need to test performance, cameras and battery life properly, but the Moto E5 seems like a decent phone for the tiny sum of just £119.

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.

Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.
78.57%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
