Great phone. Super low pricing. There is nothing negative about this phone. I had $600 phone before and this beats it hands down. I will get one for my wife as well.

VRP, 01 Feb 2019Actually I think this phone is great. Here's what I do with ANY ... moreYou have had your Moto for a year now. Is it still a good phone? I want to buy it as my FIRST smartphone, and your idea of using that SD card as storage to free up room in the phone is great. Did it work? How do you do this? I am totally in the dark and need help. Which model is your Moto? I am looking at the E5 'basic' one. Not the 'plus' model. If I move all these apps. and other things to this SD card, can I get to them easily? Do the app shortcuts still show up on the screen, and I can just go to them? Or is there some kind of long process to go through to get to them?

2 weeks with this phone that i got as a work phone and it's amazing, 2 days between charges (i only use it for whatsapp, gmail and google maps with mobile data ON all the time) screen is nice but not the best under sun (even at full brightness) but you can read easily and see all in the screen, main camera is really good, selfie camera could be better, honestly i feel very happy this cellphone

Everything with the phone is all right, but the ram memory. Sometimes it slows down its performance

Actually I think this phone is great. Here's what I do with ANY Android device -

The trick re performance on any Android cell phone, is to get an SD card and use that as the internal storage. To achieve this (if you don't know) you make yourself a developer on the phone (Google it if you don't know how). You then get the option to FORCE apps to install on the SD card. This also improves performance of the device overall, as the phone uses the SD card as a write disk. You also need to turn off all the extraneous rubbish that runs in the background (i.e. via the apps menu), and things that are using background data/battery. Doing those things makes even a cheap low-end phone that many would give bad reviews, WAY more usable (e.g. even a Huawei Y360 running Android 4.4.4 became a better performer, even though it only has 512 MB of RAM. Adding the SD card and doing as per the above, changed that phone considerably - I was able to use it as a Wi-Fi hotspot and backup cell phone for ages, with ZERO issues).

Back to the E5 - I got mine second hand, screen was in excellent condition and overall I find the phone is good quality. Not sure what others are expecting, though mine was comparable in quality and clarity etc to a friends Samsung Galaxy. Ditto re size, weight. The 13MP camera takes quality photos.

Really happy with mine! Apps run smooth and fast - multiple apps at once at that - and battery life is good with the 4000 mAh battery. This phone is a suitable semi-replacement for my laptop, which is exactly what I was looking for - albeit without the high-end brand name price tags.

Screen quality is really low,i dropped mine a few days after i got it, and a 45cm (1 ½ft) tall drop, it shattered like if a truck had run over it, im really disapointed at motorola and this device, also, apps take a while to load and sometimes crash. not really worth it.
