Moto E5 Plus specifications :

The Moto E5 Plus runs Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box, and sports a 6-inch HD+ (720 x 1440 pixels) Max Vision IPS LCD display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The India variant supports dual-SIM (Nano+Nano) functionality, and is powered by a 1.4 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC coupled with 3 GB of RAM. The global variant, on the other hand, is powered by the Snapdragon 435 SoC and supports single-SIM (Nano).



In terms of cameras, the Moto E5 Plus bears a 12-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 , LED Flash, PDAF, and laser autofocus. On the front, the smartphone gets an 5-megapixel selfie camera with selfie light. So, the cameras are not that great and at a price of Rs 12K, you can get better cameras if you opt for other options available in the market.

The smartphone has 32 GB of inbuilt storage, and storage is expandable via microSD card (up to 128 ). Connectivity options on the handset include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, GPS/ A-GPS, FM radio, 3.5 mm earphone jack, and Micro-USB port. Sensors on board include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, fingerprint reader (on the rear panel), and proximity sensor. There is a 5000 mAh battery under the hood of the Moto E5 Plus, with support for 15W TurboPower charging that claims to offer 6 hours of usage in 15 minutes of charging. However, the smartphone doesn't ship with a 15W TurboPower charger in the box, instead, it ships with a 10W Rapid Charger. A fully charged battery is claimed to provide 18 hours of non-stop video playback. The Smartphone weighs around 197 grams.

Now talking about both the devices, in my opinion both the phones are really overpriced and they don't offer value for money specs. So before buying these devices, do checkout the other options available in the market like the Redmi Y2Realme 1 and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.
