Design and Display

A little flash back to the last generation of the E-series, the Moto E4 Plus had a plastic build but the new Moto E5 sports a nice metallic chassis. There’s a clear cut bump in aesthetics as this new smartphone has an impressive 18:9 aspect ratio with deliberate effort to minimize unnecessary bezels, thus, accomodating more screen space. You will find Motorola branded on the bezel below the screen while at the back you’ve got the fairly large camera module and the Moto logo which also doubles as a fingerprint sensor.

Speaking on the display featured on the Moto E5 Plus, it is important to note that this is a budget offering so don’t expect to see a stellar display like the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Huawei P20 Pro. In that regard, there’s a 6.0-inch, 1440 x 720 pixels display with a pixel density of 268 ppi and a fairly decent viewing angle.
