Moto E5 Play review

 

As simple as a smartphone should get

Inarguably cheap ; Clean Android experience ; Headphone jack

Slow charging ; Plastic body ; Low base storage ; Few purchasing options

The Moto E5 Play is a true budget phone that won’t wow you, but does offer a compelling value thanks to its low price and a strong delivery on all of the smartphone basics. We’re not in don’t love with anything about it, but any gripes we have are...

Motorola Moto E5 Play review: The best sub-£100 phone yet?

 

Motorola's E5 Play has its flaws, but its sub-£100 price and capable camera save the day

Impressive camera for a sub-£100 phone ; Inexpensive ; Fast fingerprint reader

Awful display ; Sluggish performance

If you’re on a £100 budget, it really comes down to two phones: the Vodafone Smart N8 and the Moto E5 Play. Picking between the two is tough but, ultimately, I’d say that the Smart N8 narrowly pips the E5 Play at the post: with a superior 720p HD...

Moto E5 Play review

 

Solid display ; Affordable ; Day-long battery life ; Removable battery ; Simple software

Poor low light camera ; Won’t receive Android P ; Fingerprint sensor not included depending on carrier

For such a cheap price, the Moto E5 Play packs in all the basics you need for a solid smartphone experience.

Motorola Moto E5 Play

 

The Moto E5 Play is an affordable no-frills smartphone that can provide all your basic calling, app, and web browsing needs.

Affordable. Sturdy build. Decent overall performance. Removable battery.

Mediocre camera quality. Fingerprint sensor depends on carrier.

Whether you buy it for $40 or $120, the Moto E5 Play offers solid value if you're looking for a no-frills smartphone that can handle your basic app, browsing, and telephony needs. It has smoother performance and cleaner software than the similarly...

Moto E5 Play and E5 Plus Review

 

Moto E series is back in its fifth generation, promising high value in cost and performance that shows little compromise. But will these two phones manage to impress us with anything else beyond their pricing, and what are the alternatives at these two...

Low-cost devices that give you a little bit of everything ; Light, bloat-free interfaces do a lot with little ; Effective video stabilization (E5 Plus) ; Days-long battery life (E5 Plus) ; Bright and vivid screen (E5 Plus)

Low pixel density on displays show pixelization easily ; Poor outdoor visibility (E5 Play) ; Grainy video capture ; Audio recording in videos can be almost useless (E5 Play) ; Micro-USB charging instead of the more modern USB-C

Moto E5 Play Review: A Solid Sub-$100 Phone, with a Catch

 

There's something to be said for modest handsets like the Moto E5 Play. It's admirable that Motorola continues to lower the barrier of entry to a modern smartphone running up-to-date software. Like previous E-series devices, the E5 Play is a leader in...

Fingerprint sensor (on select models) ; Super-low price ; Android Oreo ; Good-enough performance for a budget phone ; Removable battery

Available only through carriers ; Uninspiring cameras ; Low-res display ; Subpar battery life

The Moto E5 Play proves you can get a decent smartphone experience for less than $100, though you will need to compromise on cameras and battery life.

Review: Motorola Moto E5 Play

 

Motorola is selling its able-bodied, entry-level Moto E5 Play from Boost Mobile, Cricket Wireless, and Verizon Prepaid. If you're in the market for a solid, low-cost phone, the Moto E5 Play plays well thanks to its simple hardware, easy software, and...

The Motorola Moto E5 Play gets the job done for some customer groups. The simple design is kid-friendly in that it isn't fragile, though anyone with small hands may find it somewhat big. The screen is solid, and core functions like call quality, data...
