Buy the Moto E5 Plus if you're looking for a budget phone on Cricket. Otherwise, skip it in favor of a slightly pricier Moto G6 Play or Moto G6.

The Moto E5 Plus delivers on the promise of exceptional battery life and has a design that imitates its higher-priced siblings. The software is well optimised and is quite close to stock Android. The cameras are sub-standard, performance is just about okay, and the display is nothing to write home a...

Right off the bat, the e5 Plus does indeed look good. We wish they instead made the bottom symmetric with the top which would give the device a much sleeker look. While on paper the e5 plus seems underpowered, and it surely is for the asking price, day to day performance was smooth with little to no...

If you’re looking for a big and bold phone for under £150 then the Moto E5 Plus fits the bill with it’s towering 6in screen and whopping 5000mAh battery. It’s impressive how nice the phone looks and feels considering the price and the size and weight will be worth the sacrifice for these features. It is a shame there’s no NFC here but it’s a minor omission.

Right off the bat, the e5 Plus does indeed look good. We wish they instead made the bottom symmetric with the top which would give the device a much sleeker look. While on paper the e5 plus seems underpowered, and it surely is for the asking price, day to day performance was smooth with little to no lag or frame drops. The battery backup on the smartphone is good enough to last you more than an entire day’s heavy usage

The Moto E5 Plus scores good marks for performance and battery, but limited purchasing options pit it against Motorola’s other budget contenders. Despite having a bigger screen, it lacks the increased resolution, upgraded processing power, and premium-feeling design of the Moto G6, and those prevent it from being the budget champion it was bred to be.
