Techno 11 July, 2017

We spent a week with Motorbike E4, the new entry-level smartphone from Motorola. The time has come to give you our opinion on its design, its power, its quality of photo & co.

A few days ago, MeltyStyle gave you his first impressions on the Moto E4. There was a certain enthusiasm for its design and its grip. But after a few days of use, the time has come to go further … To help you know if the Motorola smartphone is a good investment for you, we decided to put its qualities forward And point his defects with the finger. The first good point concerns its aesthetics, whose qualities had already been touted … Its metallic back makes it very pleasant to look at, so much so that one wonders on what range the Moto E4 is positioned. Motorola’s identity is visible through its logo and the metallic circle in which the camera is contained, which fans of the brand will appreciate.

Another big highlight of the Moto E4, the presence of a Touch ID drive. Few smartphones as affordable are endowed … And it must be admitted, it is much more practical / modern than an unlock code. As for the image quality, it’s a little less exciting … Its 5-inch HD screen does the job, but is not ideal for watching series. Not to mention that its 4-core MT6737M processor and 2 GB of RAM are not very powerful, so they do not launch apps and videos quickly. Its storage capacity of 16 GB is a bit limited, but it can fortunately be expanded by microSD up to 128 GB. What make you happy to store as many memories as possible.

The Moto E4 is equipped with a rear sensor of 8 megapixels, which allows it to make pictures correct but not sensational. He has a hard time managing the light, and sometimes zaps some details. Problems not suffered by its 5-megapixel front-end sensor, which will be appreciated by the amateurs of selfies. Its battery of 2800 mAh allows it to hold a whole day in being moderately solicited, but not more. Its autonomy is therefore average, which seems logical in view of the range of which the smartphone is a part. But it can boast of running Android Nougat, the whole of this version constituting one of its main qualities. To summarize, it looks like Motorola E4 designed by Motorola is a good smartphone for budgets, especially teenagers. It does the job without being egg in all areas, all for less than 150 euros. Otherwise, you can pre-order the Moto Z2 Play which has just been launched in France.
