In recent weeks we have not stopped receiving rumors about the new smartphones Motorola (or Lenovo, as we want to see) for this 2017. Up to nine smartphones from five different families are part of the plan of the brand, and we already know a few of the economic Moto C, the stylish and powerful Moto Z2 Play and the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus of interesting value for money.
And behind the tracks of the Moto X4, today is the day chosen by Lenovo to officially announce the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus. From Motorola they are aware of the tremendous competition that exists in the range in which they compete, reason why the update of the Moto E takes care of the design and bets on the battery with a Moto E4 Plus with 5000 mAh.
Metal to try to highlight in its range
The Moto E are still terminals for those users who are looking for a good smartphone at a contained price, and before the price of the MotoG range that gap is trying to cover Motorola with the Moto E. The first thing that strikes the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus is that in both has been used metal for the construction of the body, something not quite usual in phones below 200 dollars.
The Moto E4 has what is required for the basic user, with a Snapdragon 425 processor accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. Also has fingerprint reader. Its cameras are not especially noticeable in principle (eight and five megapixels) although it emphasizes the presence of LED flash in both.
The Moto E4 has some features that we can find in many terminals, but the Moto E4 Plus has precisely that plus a powerful battery on paper, with 5000 mAh that would ensure two days of use without problem. It also changes with respect to its small brother the size of screen that rises to 5.5 inches although the resolution remains the same (it would not have happened to him to happen to FullHD).

It is noteworthy, both, that come with Android 7.1 factory. In the negative part we have to place the absence of NFC chip. In conclusion, terminals looking to stand out in the input range with a design that is away from the plastic and with the option to have a good battery.
