Cheap phones have been very popular since the recent years, but Verizon’s latest addition to its prepaid family is bringing an extremely thing. The Moto E4 is now available for just $69.99, which dips below the $100 threshold. That’s an incredible discount for a new phone and we’re sure you will get a lot more over the money you need to pay for the smartphone. If you are thinking about a cheaper smartphone than the Moto’s affordable handset, you should think again. It’s really an impressive smartphone in the entry-level segment.
First of all, the design odd Moto E4 is akin to its pricing though some doesn’t scream premium. However, it’s still a familiar design with a back cover made of the plastic. Furthermore, the design language also doesn’t stray far from the design of other higher-end phones, and it looks even better than many phones at this class.
In terms of the hardware, with only $70, you will get a smartphone featuring 2 GB of RAM, a powerful Qualcomm chipset, Android Nougat and 16 GB of ROM, which is very great at this price. Although the design is as typical as it comes from Lenovo’s stable, there will be a 3.5 mm headset jack, a micro SD card slot, a front facing LED flash. The shortage of the fingerprint scanner is acceptable at this pricing.
The display exhibits slightly wrong colors and visible distortion when you’re looking at it from the side. That effect gets more apparent at extreme angles, but you should note that you’re rocking a $70 smartphone. The Snapdragon 425 SoC can meet enough requirements for basic operations, but you should not expect to play high graphic games on this entry-level phone. However, it can still handle easily for the daily tasks.

Moving on the software department, the Moto E is pre-installed the Android 7.1 Nougat with some of Moto’s “experiences”. For example, the Moto Display allows intermittently displaying relevant information including the time, date, and battery percentage on the screen when it is off. As for the camera, on the front is a 5 MP selfie camera with a flash for taking shots in low-light condition, while there is a better 8 MP snapper at the back, but if you need it in a pinch, you should not ditch a real camera for this pocket rocket.
If you need a secondary smartphone, the Moto E4 would make a great choice and it is also ideal for a non tech savvy people. Although the specs cannot make you satisfied, for what it is, it’s pretty great. The most impressive thing of the Moto E4 is its deal up to nearly $100. So, there is only a few phones that can compete at this price range.
