Motorola Moto E5 Play Quick Review

Permit me to start its description from its rear; the rear camera and the LED flash are placed in a circular chamber similar to the Moto E5. Beneath this chamber, there’s the “Moto Batwing logo” that bears the fingerprint scanner. One unique feature of its design is the splash resistant nature. Just so you know, this doesn’t mean you should take a bath while using the device. Moving to the front, the Motorola logo appears at the thick bezel while the camera fits well at the top bezel.

An HD resolution of 720 X 1280 pixels is enough to bring out moderate display quality on the 5.2-inch IPS screen. Unexpectedly, only a single Nano SIM is supported on the device. This relegates the idea of using dual SIM cards on the phone. Additionally, the smartphone runs sleekly on Android Oreo OS out of box.

A competent Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset powers the operations of the device. Encapsulated within it are four cores that run at a maximum speed of 1.4GHz. That said, Adreno 308 GPU controls the magnitude of graphics production on the device. Nice images are dished out by the 8MP camera located at the rear of this smartphone. Its selfie camera relies on a solo 5MP shooter to capture images. To sweeten the operations of both cameras, a LED flash is availed to each side.

A MicroSD card up to 256GB can be used to amplify the 16GB internal storage found on this Motorola Moto E5 Play. Without sentencing to oblivion, there’s the 2GB RAM that coordinates how well apps run on the smartphone. Wrapping up this section, the removable 2,800mAh battery acting as the duration stronghold charges quick due to Fast Charging 5V/2A technology present.
