Moto e3 Power is a great budget smartphone, one that offers excellent battery life and fluid performance.
The budget smartphone space is heating up with Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 3 and Redmi 3s setting a benchmark. Here is our first impressions of the super budget offering from Motorola

Design and Display: Moto e3 Power follows the same design we seen on Moto G4 and G4 Plus. The front is very much a standard affair. There is a 5-inch display placed between and the earpiece and speaker. The earpiece and speaker are narrower than before, and they don’t hide stereo speakers, which is a letdown for me. And there is no fingerprint sensor. The plastic back is textured which feels reassuring, and features volume rocker and power button at the right, a microUSB port at the bottom and yes, headphone jack at the top.

Moto e3 has a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. The display is neither sharp nor extremely bright, but it is well improved over the qHD (960 x 540 pixels) display found on Moto E2. The display is doing good under direct sunlight, The superior auto-brightness feature working very well. The display is also decent for watching YouTube.

Processor, Memory and Battery: Moto e3 Power gets the guts of a MediaTek processor. I used the device for a full day, I didn’t find any noticeable difference in terms of speed or performance. The MediaTek chipset coupled with 2GB RAM is running the devicevery smooth with good user experience. Moto e3 Power is ideal for people who use their smartphone primarily for chatting, browsing the web, reading news and most importantly staying updated and with MediaTek chipset, all of that is easily accomplished.

Camera:
With Moto e3 Power, we get a very basic camera that delivers in broad daylight and while the software is normal and not making any extra efforts to bring a better lights and colorts in the photo. The camera is also not quick, there is a noticeable shutter lag which I can see. The bright picture here is the new 5MP front camera. It shots decent.

Software:
If you are going to love something about Moto e3 Power, then it will be its software. Moto e3 Power runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow (yeah, no Nougat) with near stock Android experience.

A good moto phone with no extra features, but improved.
The Moto G4 Play has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (MSM8916) processor inside it with 4x Cortex-A53 1.4GHz CPU and an Adreno 306 GPU. With that is 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a replaceable 2800mAh battery. For someone that’s effectively purchasing this smartphone as a burner, a replaceable battery might be right up their alley.

Battery life is good - a day of average use should be easy for for a normal user – and a replaceable battery means that switching out for a second pack could make for a long trip without charging :), but that is not we want.

Inside the Moto G4 Play is 16GB of internal storage which I feel less campared to other models in the market at this price. But, on the other hand, it a microSD card slot for storage expansion.

The display on Moto G4 Play is 5.0-inches, with 1280 x 720 pixels across it. This display works with IPS LCD technology and is decent.

This device is bit lighter than its G4 friends at 137 grams instead of 155 grams, and comes in at a slightly smaller overall size as well, so its handy to have on hand and feeling good.

Where the real descent in quality comes is the camera. Both the front and the back camera are OK. While the Moto G4 Play doesn’t come up as hot while shooting photos in dim lighting, standard room light for non-moving objects can be captured by the device just fine.

There’s no NFC here, nor any fingerprint scanner. There’s no 5GHz band Wi-fi, just 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz. This phone is a device made to function at an above-average level in all of the very few feature it has.

Looking for a budget Android that satisfies your needs, solution is Moto G3
Being an upgrade of moto g2, its available in two variants with a ram of 1gb and 2 gb. The appearance is quite different from the previous moto smartphones. It coming with 4g network with volte option, which provides HD voice calls.
Moving to the camera features, the front camera has 13 mp focus with dual led and that of rear camera is 5 mp. Moto G3 operates in Android 5.0 lollipop os, which can be upgradable to 6.0 marshmallow, which provides the excellent user interface options equals to the high range smartphones available in market.
It comes along with corning gorilla glass, and a display of 5 inches It has two colour variants black and white.
Being using this mobile for more than 8 months, it was an excellent budget smartphone, as the same time with latest advancements. It has some minimum defects, such as over heating while using data connections, and ram dumping. But inspite all these, it was an extraordinary budget mobile to be prefer for all kind of users.
Thanks for reading...

A good moto phone with great display, sorund and battery, but still in old body!!!
Motorola's middleweight smartphones are back for another round. The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus share most features, but the Plus adds a little something extra. These devices run a near stock version of Android and enjoy some welcome enhancements from Motorola. Here is Phonescoop's in-depth review of Moto's latest mid-range handsets.

Body:
To start, the G4 is significantly bigger than its predecessors (6.02 x 3.02 inches compared to 5.59 x 2.85 inches). Lenovo bumped the screen size from 5 inches to 5.5 inches and had no choice but to increase the phone's dimensions. Amazingly, the G3 and G4 weigh the same at 5.47 ounces. Where the first three generations were a good size for most people, the G4 is a phablet and may be too big for some. (The G4 Play, due later this summer, is a bit smaller with its 5-inch screen.)
The design has a bit less personality. The G has always had a somewhat plain face but a curvy backside that helped the phone sit deeper in your palm. The G4's face is even more plain (something I didn't think was possible) and the rear has been flattened out in favor of a more cookie cutter shape. BO-RING. What we're seeing here is the Lenovo-ing of Motorola's industrial design and I don't like it one bit.

Screen:
The G2 and G3 each had 5-inch 720p displays that were just fine for their price point. The G4 steps up to a 5.5-inch screen with 1080p HD resolution. It's a great display. The resolution is dense enough that individual pixels are invisible; everything on the screen is razor sharp. The display throws off plenty of light. I was able to use the G4 indoors and out no problem, though it needs to be set to max brightness outdoors. (The auto-brightness function is really, really fussy.) With no blue shift or brightness drop, viewing angles are excellent. It's a fine display for a mid-range phone.

Sound:
The G4 is a solid voice phone. The earpiece produces loud, if somewhat harsh, voices that are easy to hear almost anywhere. The volume is there in spades at the cost of clarity. Calls were prone to distortion when set all the way up. The good news is you'll be able to hear calls at lower volumes with better clarity. Voice tones were bright in the earpiece, and those I spoke to through the G4 said I my voice sounded "very good."
The speakerphone can bet set to incredible volumes. You can easily fill a moderate room with your conversation if you wish.
Battery
Along with the bigger screen, the G4 and G4 Plus have a bigger battery, too. It jumps from the 2,470 mAh power cell in last year's phone to 3,000 mAh. That's a huge upgrade. After testing the phones over the course of a week on three different networks, I feel confident in saying the Moto G4 should get everyone through a full day of average use with enough power to last through the night and halfway into the following day. Even under heavy use, the battery delivered a full day with some power to spare.
