Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus, Moto E5 Play launched: Price, specifications, availability

Motorola Announces the Introduction of New G- and E-Series Phones

Motorola's Moto G6 does a pretty good flagship smartphone for a much lower price

It's worth mentioning that the Moto G6 Plus is an improved version of the Moto G5S Plus if you look at it more closely, since numerous features present in the new model were either inherited or optimized from the device's predecessor, but in many ways a comparison to the Moto G5S Plus seems unfair.

Motorola is also releasing two new models in its E-series of phones: the Moto E5 Play and the Moto E5 Plus. While the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play comes with the same display size and RAM, but vary in terms of battery capacity, camera setup, and processor.

Motorola India on Thursday announced to open 50 new "Moto Hubs" across top 12 cities of Andhra Pradesh. Running on Android 8.0 Oreo, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 427 processor coupled with 2GB/3GB of RAM. The phone is powered by a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor along with Adreno 308 GPU.

The Moto G6 Plus, as the name suggests, offers the most premium features in the Moto G6 family. But Motorola's spotty update record is precisely why I can't help but think that the Moto G6 absolutely should have run on Android One.

You'll get 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage unless you opt for the Amazon exclusive model which has 4/64GB for just £20 extra.

It's also worth noting that the G6 Plus model has a more powerful Snapdragon 630 processor and all the G6 phones have a microSD card slot so you can add 128GB more if needed.

The Moto G6 smartphone comes with 3GB and 4GB of RAM.

The Moto E5 features the same looks as its bigger brother, but fits it all within a smaller 5.7-inch 18:9 HD+ panel.

The Moto E5 Plus has a 6-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution.

Rear Camera: Dual-rear cameras - 12MP + 5 MP, f/1.8 aperture, LED Flash, Video recording up to 1080p @ 60fps.

The Moto G6 sports a 5.7 Inch display with the same resolution, full-HD+ screen resolution.

Interestingly, Motorola has followed the same trend as Moto G6 series in this Moto E5 series too. In fact, Motorola's in-house software is still fantastic, leaving most of Android 8.0 Oreo alone while bringing some useful additional functionality like Moto Voice and Moto Gestures.

Battery: The Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus are backed by a 3,000mAh and 3,200mAh battery set up respectively. With software so close to stock Android, the only real difference would be having the promise of at least two years of support and software upgrades to the latest versions of Android as they come.

The smartphone's main feature is its 5,000mAh battery which should offer a long battery backup, especially since it has a 720p+ display resolution. The Moto G6 Play comes with support for 10W fast charging.

The Moto G6 itself will cost a very reasonable £219 or 249 Euros.

- All the three phones come with Moto X4-like 3D glass design. At the front there is a 5-megapixel selfie camera with a dedicated LED flash. Motorola is calling its take on the full view 18:9 aspect ratio as Max Vision display.

Futures: Android 8.0 (Oreo), Single / Dual SIM, Water repellent coating (p2i), Fingerprint sensor and 3.5mm audio jack, Front-ported speaker, Dual microphones.

In this post, we will be pitting the Moto G6 Play, Moto E5 Plus, and the Redmi 5 against each other. The handset was launched at €299, which roughly translates to around Rs 24,000.
