This Smartphone Is All You Need (2017)

Oh, well it's lucky that you guys say that because this video is sponsored by Blue Apron! If you guys check out the link in the description you will get your first three meals totally for free straight from Blue Apron Hey guys, this is Austin

This is the Moto E4+ and it might just be all the smartphone you need What makes this phone impressive is that not only does it have solid specs for less than $200, but what's really cool about it is that this guys rocking a 5000 milliamp hour battery The Moto E has been one of my favorite budget phones for a long time, but the E4+ promises to step it up in a big way Now part of the reason it does that is it's now rocking a full metal build Inside the box there's not a lot

So we get a microUSB cable as well as the 10 watt power adapter which actually does support quick charge meaning that even though you have a giant battery it actually should be able to charge pretty quickly Pull off the metal back and not only will you see the SIM card slot as well as your microSD but also that giant 5000 milliamp hour battery Now I think it's easy to kind of hear a spec like that and not realize but this is an enormous battery for any phone but especially something like this which has such power sipping internals What I really like about the Moto E4+ is that it doesn't really feel like you're giving up much versus a bigger and more expensive flagship I mean this guy's rocking a 5

5 inch display, it's got that huge battery, the metal build, you've got a fingerprint sensor and this all is in a form that costs 180 dollars The fingerprint sensor is a great example of a feature that you usually don't find on budget phones So with the Moto E4 it's actually the standard Moto one, so if you tap and hold it will lock the phone, tap it and it'll quickly unlock and you can even use this for gestures Now to be fair it's not all cutting edge, so this guy's rocking a micro USB port instead of USB-C, although I feel like that's not really a big deal for most people, and amazingly enough is rocking a full headphone jack, which is sadly becoming more and more rare for phones in 2017 Spec wise you're not really giving up much either

so the Moto E4 is rocking a quad-core Snapdragon 427 processor 2GB of memory and either 16 and 32 Gigs of storage and of course you can expand that with the microSD card slot It might not be the most powerful phone in the world but it is totally fine for normal usage and when you take a look at the performance inside Geekbench it's pretty much on par with a lot of the more expensive phones such as the Moto G It's one thing to look at benchmarks but it's another thing to actually use the phone in the real world where it feels pretty snappy So a lot of that has to do with the fact that this is running stock Android which makes everything just a little bit better as far as the optimization side of things go But multitasking is totally fine and what you're getting here is something that for most people is going to feel very, very similar to a much more expensive phone

It's also fully up to date on Android 711 Nougat, and that's one of the nice things about Motorola phones Typically speaking they do a pretty good job of keeping them up to date, which is definitely not something i can say about a lot of other budget phones Now this guy does come fully unlocked, which is fairly standard for a lot of the Amazon Prime phones, but what is cool about this guy is that not only not does it support LTE but also dual band Wi-Fi

Now yes, I'm going to take a hard turn into nerd town right now, but dual band Wi-Fi is something that I find should be on a lot more devices It makes it a lot more reliable, and if you have a fast internet connection it makes it a lot faster Now this is one of Amazon's Prime exclusive phones and because of that you have a lot of different options So the base Model is going to run you $180 with 16GB of storage and you can bump that up to 32GB of storage for 200 Now if you don't care about the Amazon lockscreen ads that come with it, yes you can save $40 on both models, which may or may not be worth it depending on how you feel about that stuff

The E4+ is rocking a 55 inch 720p screen Now while it might not be the sharpest display in the world, I think it's going to be totally fine for most people and importantly not only is the colour fairly accurate but it also gets very bright For the camera the Moto E4+ is rocking a 13 megapixel shooter This doesn't look bad

So color seems reasonable, I don't think it's the sharpest thing I've seen but there actually is a fair bit of depth of field HDR actually looks pretty good here, even though there's a lot of contrast in this picture it's actually able to keep a lot of the detail Oh, no you can't show that I'm sorry that's uh, that's- that's showing off certain secrets [laughter] The Moto E4 also has 1080P video as you can see from this super smooth shot of Mr Ken Belito it's actually not too bad

I feel like this is a trend with this phone maybe it's not the greatest camera or the greatest build quality or the greatest screen, but put together for $180 it is really hard to complain While the Moto E4 isn't totally waterproof, it is supposed to be at least somewhat water-resistant Alright, here it goes, will the Moto E4 survive? It probably will, I think so [water sounds, such as splish, splash, and spspshspsp] Yep That looks like it works

One water test later, I am really impressed with the Moto E4+ Now yes you can spend a lot more to get a smartphone that's going to be a bit better in certain areas, but taken as a whole there's really not a lot to complain about So as always I'll have a link to check this guy out in the description and I've got to give a big shout out to Blue Apron for sponsoring this video Blue Apron provides everything you need to cook a delicious meal right at home and it's all inside this box Blue Apron offers a large selection of recipes and is always adding new dishes to the menu every week, and they ship to most of the country
