Other than the Moto G6 series launched today, we also got the Moto E5 series. The Moto E5 Plus clocks in with a 6.0-inch screen, a 5,000 mAh battery, and a 12MP rear camera. Motorola couldn't elaborate on pricing for either the E5 Play or E5 Plus yet, as those will vary depending on the carrier.
In the United Kingdom the E5 release date is set for June and the handset will be available from a number of retailers including Carphone Warehouse, Vodafone, Amazon and Argos. The USP of the Moto E5 Plus is the 5000mAh battery, and the phone thankfully also ships with TurboCharge technology.
And then there's the lower end Moto E5 Plus and E5 Play. All in all, it's certainly a pity the E5 and G6 Plus are not coming to the US.
On the back there's a slight camera bulge above the circular Motorola logo, and that emblem actually doubles as an easy-to-hit fingerprint scanner. The moto e plus' sleek 18:9 aspect ratio means it still fits perfectly in your hand and comes designed with a reflective wave pattern and a curved back that looks as great as it feels. The competition is only going to get more fierce as the year rolls on, but Motorola has proven itself to be one of the world's best - if not /the/ best outright - at crafting quality, low-priced devices. Luckily, Moto G6 has a 5.7-inch, 2160×1080 (FHD+) LCD display with the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio. For $50 less you get a similar experience without the dual cameras, longer battery life, and a slightly different screen in the Moto G6 Play. The smartphone is available in 2 shades - Indigo and Gold colours which measures 159.9x75.5x7.99mm in dimension. It also has an 8MP front-facing camera with a dedicated LED flash. As always, we'll keep you updated as soon as we know more. It does include phase detect autofocus though. There are 12MP and 5MP dual cameras on the back, which let the phone do various selective focus and filter tricks. However, the Moto G6 Play gets a larger 4,000 mAh battery that Motorola says will carry it 36 hours on single charge.
Report raises questions about safety of Allegiant Air
Allen served as the executive council chairman of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters at Allegiant for 2017. In responses to the report, both Allegiant and the FAA said that they put safety at the forefront.
The Moto E5 has the same 13 MP camera with an F/2.0 on the rear, as the bigger E5 plus. The G6 is kept alive by a 3000mAh battery, which comes with support for Motorola's 15W TurboPower charger through a USB Type-C port. We'll be sure to put this to the test as well during our review process.
The base Moto G6 uses a lower mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chip with an Adreno 506 GPU, along with either 3GB or 4GB RAM based on model. All three devices have Android 8.0 Oreo (too bad that Motorola opts for this version and not the 8.1). Memory-wise theres 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB storage, so youll likely need to fill the microSD slot.
The moto g plus will go on sale in the United Kingdom from 2 May at a starting price of £269 and will be available exclusively at Carphone Warehouse.
Motorola's E line often sits in our list of the best cheap phones as it manages to supply lots of spec for an affordable price. Google Photos is pre-installed on the phone as its default gallery app, with Google Assistant integration and voice commands also being part of the new mobile offering from the Lenovo-owned company, together with Bluetooth 4.2 and Dolby Audio. Step up to the £269 Moto G6 Plus and you're getting a bigger screen and beefier Snapdragon 630.
