The Moto G5 is a great phone, but how much do you lose going down to the $70 Moto E4?

It's only available as prepaid? So how many minutes does that have or actually what the fuck does it even mean if you've already got a plan with Verizon? Can't the phone just be used with that or is it eternally locked out from ever being able to just pop your old sim card in or however Verizon transfers an existing phone number to a new phone?
If someone wants the E4, but also wants a better camera, then go with the E4 plus.
I own a standard E4, just like the one in this video, and love it. I went from a Moto G3 to the E4, and the E4 is MUCH faster, yet only has the 425 vs. a 410 in the G3.
y'all spoiled. these phones are fucking dope for the prices. go back to flip phones and tell me how bad these are after a month of a flip in ur pocket. I got my e4 for 39$ and for 40$ it is a great great fone
Hey amazing comparison, I wanted to buy the G5, but it isn't launched in Pakistan (perks of living in a 3rd world shit hole - 'damn you Dad couldn't you buy the ticket yourself instead of being a cheapskate) he got the American student visa but his sponsored ticket expired.
Without a doubt you are the least annoying Video reviewer I've listened too in a while. I'd stopped watching video reviews all together for a while because every second video was a whiny voiced kid spending half there time on meaningless trivialities like the colour if packaging.
anyway just wanted to say thanks firstly for a solid review, and secondly for not having a terrible speech style.
First time viewer here. I have to say, out of the several reviews of the E4 I've watched, yours was hands down the best--most informative, clearly presented and thorough. Well done for someone so young. You know your stuff! Thanks for a great video!
Unfortunately, Moto E4 comes with Mediatek CPU here in Italy and it's about 40€ less than a Moto G5. I think Moto G5 would be a better option here. Anyway, your SOTs are too low, there must be something wrong.
Nice job on the review. I've now watched 10 of these videos and other people just don't get it. They shouldn't be creating videos. They repeat themselves 10x and take forever to make a point. Your video is tight and succinct.
Actually that's easy in my case as I live in the USA so the G5 isn't available. Officially anyway.. That said , Jacklyn is right, save for the rear camera. I'd say the E4's rear camera is surprisingly good so I don't think you're missing out there.
No chop for flashlight and no twist for camera in the e4 and the g5 plus has the twist and chop features. The g5 plus has fast charging Qualcomm 3.0 also backwards compatible to 2.0 while the E4 doesn't. So this should have been covered. The radios however for Verizon is much better in the E4 while the G5 Plus struggles to jump antenna to antenna on Verizon so I end up stuck on 3G because it doesn't jump to the next hour this close by. No volte or hd voice in g5 plus but does with the Verizon e4. But this doesn't matter cuz hd voice doesn't work right on either since I'm on Xfinity mobile a Verizon carrier.
If only all reviews were as good as yours with your explanations, and attention to detail, it would make choosing the right phone a lot easier. For someone so young, you have a thorough understanding of what is needed to create a great review. Keep it up, things can only get better.
I put at&t SIM card in the unlocked version and only get HSPA. idiots at AT&T store told me it doesn't get LTE cause it has CDMA in it. nonsense,! I called tech support and they asked for imei. they said unknown phone and manufacturer. I had to inform them as to maker, model and fact it was just released for sale. they have to send email to their imei team in order to enable LTE reception on their system. hard to believe that a major carrier is this dumb.
LOL that's the standard, and will be for years to come. USB-C is slow and has many issues as of now. One major one being if you use any charger besides the one the phone comes with, you run the extremely high risk of completely shorting your phone out
have you used a phone with mt6737 processor for the price it is a great processor it gets the job done and I know there are phones with better processes at this price range but you don't have that brand recognition of Motorola nor the tech support also Moto uses near stock Android because of that the phones performance is pretty good for this price if you take any other phone at this price range from any chinese OEMS you are going to get skinned versions of Android with better hardware configuration and you are not going to have a great experience on that phone if you want to have a similar experience on that phone you will have to root it install a custom recovery install a custom ROM so in my opinion for the price Moto e4 is a great phone It everything right for a normal average user if your power user it's not the phone for you if you want to give it's not the phone for you if you want to take great looking low light photos it is not the phone for you but if you are looking for a phone for basic social networking watching an occasional YouTube video playing some casual games go ahead and buy that phone
This is the second video of yours I have ever watched, I don't travel youtube as much anymore, and your delivery and attention to detail is phenomenal. No other reviewer would have done this. Well done. Also, usually don't comment on review videos so, also a first.
