Considering this 's average ranking of 87%, we believe that the Motorola E4 Plus is currently Phonerated's best Motorola phone 2018. Furthermore, we think that our sample of 467 reviews from our sources gives us a high confidence level that pushes us to call it a "no-brainer best choice."

This smartphone puts a plus on power (Its 5000mAh fuel tank easily trumps those from other models), sports a respectable 13MP main cam, and settles for unimpressive performance specs with 2GB of RAM and a 1.4GHz processor.
