Although Motorola does not command a large share of the smartphone market, it is backed by the deep pockets of Lenovo. This means Motorola can pursue some strategies that similarly situated smartphone manufacturers may not be able to do. One of those moves is to make sure they have covered all segments of the market meaning they have an offering for just about any kind of shopper. While top-tier devices generate all of the buzz for companies, being able to provide devices for shoppers who are looking for a phone and do not really care about the latest specs or dropping lots of money on a smartphone can be a nice way to generate some income.
Being able to offer something to buyers at the end of the spectrum opposite the top-tier is where the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus come in to play. These budget offerings from Motorola may not knock the socks off in terms of performance or features, but they have extremely favorable price points.
For this review, we spent some time with both devices to see how they might hold up for any prospective buyers in need of a budget smartphone.
