Moto phones are not about hardware specs. They excel at optimization and user experience. It's going to feel as snappy and better quality as some of the comparable priced Chinese phones with better on paper specs; these companies throw a bunch of hardware together so it looks like an incredible deal but the phones are buggy and won't get official updates and support like you do with Motorola. Motorola has a lot more money spent in their phones in R&D, debugging and behind the scenes stuff that simply cannot be put into a quick chart comparison.

If you have the expertise, time, patience, and enjoyment in playing with one of those phones that somehow has 4 GB RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage
and somehow is able to be offered for sub $300 then by all means, go for it.
Those types of phones are for people who enjoy benchmarking and modding and the rooting community. I used to love doing all that but had a moment of clarity where I wondered why I'm downloading the nightly builds of so and so... better performance? Doing what?

I was incredibly happy, best phone I've ever had, with my Moto X 2nd gen with "only" 2 GBs of RAM till over 2 years later, early this summer, the battery showed it's aged and had to move on.

I now am using a flagship LG with 4 GBs of RAM and not once have I used it and thought "man, was I missing out" lol.

Well, not entirely true. I have a Moto x pure edition 16 gb model. Even though it has a Microsd card, I have difficulties to install apps, and I have lots of them. If you are not going to use those many apps, by all means 16 gb should be fine. I keep moving apps to my SD card, but after upgrade they keep moving back to internal memory and it's very irritating.

G4 Play has Snapdragon 410, E4 has Snapdragon 427, so I would say the E4 is slightly better

Looks better than moto G5
It does look nicer. G5 still has a much better screen, up to 4gb RAM, and a much better CPU. BUT, for $139 the battery life, screen size, fingerprint sensor, and 7.1 really fills a nice spot in the market for folks who just need a more utilitarian phone.

Planning on getting one as a backup phone to my iPhone 6s Plus. I'm on T-Mobile and will just pop in my duplicate Digits SIM.

Will be interesting to see how Motorola prices the G5s and G5s Plus in October/November though.

I'm very intrigued by this phone, especially, at this price point. I'm curious, to those of you who have gotten familiar with the specs for this new E5 Plus, how does it compare to the Moto G5 Plus overall? Or to a Moto G4 Play?

And would a regular Moto E4 be considered an upgrade over a Moto G4 Play? If someone feels like chiming in with a response and sharing their thoughts about to these questions, it would definitely be appreciated.

And, as always, much thanks to the OP for posting this deal on here for others to see!

Edit: If I'm not mistaken, the regular Moto E4 is available for $100, with Amazon Prime Ads an Offers. Would this Moto E5 Plus be worth the extra $60 cost over the regular Moto E4?

Hi OP,
Do you know if Moto E4 Plus has USB-C port?
Thank you for your reply.

In case it might have gotten lost in my longer post, I wanted to ask, does anyone think this Moto E4 Plus is worth the additional $60 cost over the regular Moto E4? And if so, why?

Huge battery, but I feel like this thing is gonna be heavy AF. The E4 already feels a bit heavy to me and this is 30 grams more.

To put it in perspective, it's heavier than the Zmax Pro and that bad boy is 6"

I chose to wait for the E4 Plus 16gb for $40 more over the E4 simply for the screen size and the Snapdragon 427 which has X9 LTE (about twice as fast as the 425's X6 LTE). Since I have a crap ton of SDHC cards, 16gb vs 32gb isn't much of a factor in my decision.

Thanks for the response! Do you know if the 32GB model has more RAM than the 16GB version?

They both have 2gb and from everything I've read there won't be 2gb/3gb/4gb versions like the G5.

2 GB RAM today is meh for $180 phone.
Can't argue with that. I think the value is there if you don't mind the extra click for Amazon ads & offers and can get by with 16gb storage. $139 is the price point that makes it a pretty slick deal for the other positive features of the phone.

Anyone have any experience with the Prime phones with ads?
I hear people say it's not that bad but one of my favorite Motorola features is the ambient display and how the Amazon ads might interfere with ambient display core use and functionality?
