We all know about the Android Go movement that started earlier this year and we saw phones from Alcatel, Nokia, ZTE and others joining the merry band. The Go circus just got an additional member with the release of the Moto E5 Play Go smartphone. Similar to the bunch of other smartphones carrying the Go moniker, the Moto E5 Play Go has entry-level specs which is why it runs the Go Edition of Android Oreo optimised to perform better on this type of smartphones.

Design and Display

Conventionally, the Moto E5 Play is the blueprint for making this smartphone hence no surprise that they look more alike except for the difference in size. Bezels at the front have been reduced according to recent traditions, although there is still quite a chunk at the chin and forehead. Just in case you are looking for the fingerprint reader, it is the Moto logo at the back same as in other E5 series.

A modest display is also featured not in terms of size but in the aspect of resolution, speaking of which it has a rather low figure. Sized at 5.84-inch, the display only has a 960 x 480 pixels resolution. What to expect is a screen with not too vibrant colours considering pixel density is 184 ppi.

Battery and Camera

The Moto E5 Play Go does not eat up much power because of its low specs. Thus, it is only befitting that you have a small battery capacity on the smartphone which by the way is at the 2, 100mAh mark with no fast charge, not like you really need one with such low capacity battery.

To take pictures, the smartphone has a rather low standard camera which is normal for an entry-level smartphone like this. In light of this, the smartphone has an 8MP camera at the rear and a 5MP front camera.

Hardware and Software

Supplied by Qualcomm, the processor here is a Snapdragon 425 chip that clocks at 1.4GHz, all four cores. Not impressive right? Welcome to the world of entry-level smartphones. It is followed by 16GB of built-in storage space and 1GB RAM. Since there is not much space for storing files, you might want to use the memory card slot which can increase the space up to 256GB. The OS as pointed out earlier is the Go-Edition of Android Oreo which comes with the Go versions of system apps like Google map, play store and so forth.

Moto E5 Play Go Pricing and Availability
