Motorola’s Moto E5 comes to the US for $100

Motorola brought Motorola E5 to the United States earlier this year after launching two types of phones, the E5 Plus and the E5 Play. The E5 is the cheapest of all three models, but is actually the most modern model on the outside. It has a slightly cropped bezel in the front, a relatively slim profile, and a 18: 9 display with a fingerprint sensor on the back. It is only sold for $ 100 and does not always check every box at that low price.

Of course there is a slight trade-off in the specification with a $ 100 phone. You get a big 5.7-inch display, but with a resolution close to 720p – the bigger it is, the lower it is. There is not enough water repellent coating like other E5 models, so there is not enough support for a 5GHz Wi-Fi network. This means leaving some routers and hotspots.

However, if you have these trade-offs, the specs here are consistent with the lines you should see on a $ 100 phone. It has a Snapdragon 425 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable to Micro SD), a headphone jack and NFC for mobile payment. There is also one big benefit. You can easily spend the day with a large battery of 4,000 mAh. Launch Android Oreo.

This is not one of Motorola's best values. If you can spend more, the Moto G6 line offers more power and cooler parts. However, both Play and Plus perform well when tested. Earlier this year, the E5 is likely to be one of the better options for the $ 100 price range.
