Motorola smartphones were the real deal under the Rs. 10,000 price segment with previous gen G and E series that shine in almost every department. But now with many Chinese smartphones flooding the market in the same price range, Motorola phones have got some serious competition. Despite the market heat, the Moto E4 stands still with great design, good build quality, stock Android experience, and satisfactory overall performance. It can easily give competitors a run for their money in its segment. That said, it still falls short with average cameras, subpar battery performance when compared with Lenovo K6 power and Redmi 4.
So, if a device with the mentioned pros and above all, a smartphone from Motorola is your primary requirement, then the Moto E4 is a no-nonsense phone. But, if you are okay with any brand and need a better handset, we would advise you have a look at the Redmi 4, the Lenovo K6 power which is a better value for your money.
Motorola’s E series and G series smartphones are a favorite choice for many of us. The Lenovo-owned company comes up with mobiles with decent specifications at budgeted rates in these series. A few months ago, the company had launched the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus smartphones in the E series, and they have already grabbed the eyeballs in the market. But is the E4 smartphones worth a buy? However, we will now find those answers only for the Moto E4 variant in this post by beginning with its specifications.
Moto E4 sports a 5-inch HD 2.5D curved glass full lamination display at a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. It is powered by 1.3 GHz Quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor with 650MHz Mali T720 MP1 GPU and runs on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) out of the box. There is 2GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory that can be expanded using the microSD card. It has an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera and 5-megapixel fixed focus selfie-camera.
The E4 smartphone is powered by 2800 mAh removable battery with rapid charging technology. It also comes with a fingerprint sensor to provide an extra layer of security. Sensors such as proximity and accelerometer are also onboard for the gaming and other purposes.
The Moto E4 doesn’t deserve any awards for its design, but it is satisfying considering the price. The plastic with tightly closed edges acts as a perfect seal on the back. You will find the fingerprint sensor below the screen. The integration of the fingerprint sensor at this price range is very appreciable.
The controls and connectors are minimal. On the right, you will find the power and volume rocker buttons while the left side has nothing. On the top, you will find the 3.5 mm audio jack port and at the bottom contains the USB port and microphone. There is a front camera above the screen accompanied by the usual set of sensors; front firing LED flash and primary earpiece. The primary camera which is situated in the back is little protruding. So, extra care has to be taken when you place the smartphone on its back. Apart from the camera, the rear has the secondary mic for noise cancellation, Moto dimple, speaker grills.
The company claims that the E4 is water repellant, so you can expect it to work fine like any other devices when it is exposed to drops of water from rain. Thanks to the ongoing monsoon in the country, the phone got little wet from rain, and it was still working without any issues. You will find the written logo of the Moto on the front above the display and Single Lettered M logo on the back under the camera. The company could have skipped adding the logo on the front to give a premium look to the smartphone.
The Moto E4 comes with a 5-inches HD 2.5D curved glass full lamination display at a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. One cannot expect much regarding detail at this price range. But the E4 met the little expectations that we had in mind. The color accuracy is low unlike in the mid-range smartphones, and the clarity is also less while playing high-end games. The brightness, on the other hand, works like a charm. Though the mobile is not shipped with an Ambient light sensor, you will not find much difficulty in adjusting the brightness. In our experience, we were able to view the display clearly in both the daylight and dark situations.
Still, the company could have integrated a better color output in the display, because, one of the main reasons behind why the people go for Moto mobiles is for its display, and not to mention the stock Android experience which we will talk about in the software section of this review. Therefore, the display is set up for the average users who don’t mind having inaccurate viewing colors. But, are there people like that in today’s world?
The Moto E4 is powered by the MediaTek MT6737 SoC clocked at 1.3GHz Quad-Core processor with Mali 650MHz Mali T720 MP1 GPU. The MediaTek MT6737 is one of the favorite chipsets for smartphones that are priced under Rs. 10,000. For general day-to-day usage scenarios, the Moto E4 shines with decent performance. We barely noticed any lags or stutters in the U.I or while browsing through Chrome with 4-5 tabs open. Apps open and close fairly quickly, and no heating issues were noticed even in heavy use. That said, the Moto E4 fails to put up a good show on heavy usage. Though there was no heating, the device slows down a bit on heavy and continuous usage. It takes a good second or two to respond to taps which could get annoying in the long run. To keep yourself away from lag or any delay, run apps in the background that you are actively using and clean up the inactive apps.
Moving to gaming, we played a wide range of games that includes some high-end titles and casual ones. Games like Asphalt 8, Nova 3, Need for Speed Run, Mortal Combat was playable when graphics settings were adjusted to low. However, even with lowest graphics settings, there was the considerable amount of frame drops and stutters. On the other hand, medium to casual games were able to render graphics accurately with occasional frame drops. With heavy and continuous gaming, the device was getting a little warm at the rear end near the camera module. Overall, keep the expectations to a minimum and the Moto E4 will not disappoint you, but if you plan on heavy usage, you will have to bear with the lag and sluggishness.
The Moto E4 rocks an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash and 5-megapixel fixed focus selfie-camera with a front firing LED flash. Talking about the camera, images shot in well-lit conditions have vibrant colors and good details. Turning on the HDR mode lets you click images with good light and dynamic range. Focusing is quick, and also the focus ring allows you to adjust the brightness manually. On the other hand, the low-light shots are a total wash out. The images lack proper details or required punch in them. The LED flash helps in brightening images; but the pictures still are grainy and noisy for our liking. Though we shouldn’t we be expecting much from the camera of a smartphone costing just Rs. 8,500, it is a letdown with its poor low-light performance.
Up front is a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash for better selfies in low-light. The images clicked in daylight and outdoors are decent, but not so great for our liking. The front camera can collect good amount of details, and the colors are acceptable too. Coming with an LED flash, the front camera can click selfies even in dark low-light conditions and the images are pretty good. Overall, the camera of the Moto E4 is nothing exceptional but can get the job done for its price tag.
The Motorola Moto E4 comes with a 3.5mm audio jack, and the speaker grill is present on the rear side. The audio via loudspeaker is quite loud unless you place your hand on the speaker while holding it in landscape or place it on a flat surface. We used a pair of earphones that we have with us and the sound output via them is great with good bass. However, it lacks equalizer support, hence you are stuck with the default audio profiles. Google play music was the default music player, and it is capable of playing any format we wanted.
Moving to video department, being a 720p panel, the device had no issues playing or streaming HD videos, and it could even play Full HD 1080p videos as well. No freezing or audio-video going out of sync issues were noticed. Overall, the multimedia experience is not bad, but as we said above, invest some more and get a good pair of earphones for the much better audio/video experience.
Moto E4 is powered by a 2800 mAh battery that supports rapid charging technology. On a typical day, the battery will last up to one single day. But, if you are a heavy user, you will have to charge the E4 smartphone once again in the evening. We tested the mobile in both 4G data, and Wi-Fi connections turned on all the time. In the 4G VoLTE network, the battery was draining faster than expected and on the flip side, it stayed longer with Wi-Fi network. So, during traveling, you must not forget to carry the travel adapter that comes with the box. Buying a power bank would also be a better idea.
The E4 smartphone requires exactly 2 hours of time to charge from 0% to 100%. That’s pretty long for a 2800 mAh battery. But you cannot complain about this because that’s all you can get at this price range. However, you must be able to watch more videos, because our video test drained the battery in 10 hours and 20 minutes. Overall, the battery performance for a casual user should be satisfying, but if you are a heavy user, you might want to reconsider your expectations.
Moto E4 runs on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat) out of the box. In the recent update from the company, the Motorola has not included the E4 smartphone in the list of devices that would get the Android Oreo update. So, buying this smartphone also means that you will have to settle with the Nougat version. Again, if you are an average user, this should not bother you. Because, you will still be able to get the most out Android using the split-screen view, google assistant and much more from the Nougat O.S.
Apart from the Moto Display and Moto Actions, you will not find any apps other than the Google apps. The Moto Display will allow you to view the notifications on the lock screen without having to unlock the smartphone every time you receive a message or notification. Using the Moto Actions, you can assign gestures on the fingerprint sensor. For instance, the multitasking can be controlled by swiping right, and you can access the back-button functions by swiping left. It comes with 2GB RAM out of which around 900MB to 1GB is available to the user when just default apps are running in the background.
Thanks to stock Android, the multitasking capabilities are smooth. We never noticed any lag or delay in switching between apps. Unless you run too many apps in the background, the memory management is great with all apps staying in memory most of the time. We are also so happy to see the accuracy and speed of the fingerprint sensor. On the whole, if you are a stock Android lover, you will love the UI of Moto E4 smartphone and its multitasking capabilities.
