Moto E5

Design and Display

Although, the Moto E5 does not have the attractive glass finish seen in the more expensive G6 series. However, at the front, both smartphones appears to be more alike especially with the Moto G6 Play. Built in line with the latest design trend like trimmed bezels and 18:9 aspect ratio and offering a wider display in landscape. It is encased in an aluminium body with a large camera module at the rear, typical of Moto smartphones. While the Motorola logo you see at the back is the fingerprint sensor.

Like I said earlier, the smartphone is more or less the same with the G6 In the display section having the same size and resolution as well as a similar trimmed down bezels approach. Extending up to 5.7-inch in size, the Moto E5 has 1440 X 720 pixels resolution and pixel density of 282 ppi. Also, you get a Corning Gorilla Glass protection against scratches.

Battery and Camera

The work of keeping your smartphone on, is in the good hands of an ample battery from Motorola. With a staggering 4, 000mAh capacity, the smartphone should be good for a day plus on normal usage. You also get fast charging to boost the smartphone in no time through its MicroUSB port.

At the rear side is where the action is on this smartphone when it comes to taking pictures as it has the same offering as the Moto G6 Play while the front camera has a relatively slight downgrade. This means you have a 13MP camera and a 5MP front camera. A quite decent arrangement on a budget smartphone.

Hardware and Software

Driven by a budget Qualcomm SoC, which is only befitting for the price you are paying and handles things quite well. That being said, there’s a Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425 with four cores clocking at 1.4GHz. In addition, the smartphone sorts out it’s graphics with an Adreno 308 GPU.

In continuance, the Moto E5 has 2GB of internal memory and also 16GB of built-in storage space which is quite small in today’s world. However, you could expand this by adding up to 128GB which is most likely to happen considering the low storage plus you get the Android 8.0 Oreo pre-installed.

Pricing and Availability

The Moto E5 is not available yet, although reports suggest that it will be on sale come June for about 62, 000 Naira depending on the deal and your location.
