My sister-in-law is using her original Moto G that she purchased when she joined RW a couple years ago. It’s become very laggy, shuts off on its own from time to time, and lately some calls & texts don’t seem to be going through to her phone. I suggested a factory reset as a temporary solution, but it’s certainly time for her to shop for a new phone.
My suggestion right away was the G5 Plus 64GB version under the logic that you can never get enough RAM, especially as apps get bigger over time. But honestly, it could be overkill for her since all she mostly cares about are calls, texts, Facebook, and battery life because of constantly checking FB. I just stumbled across the RW sale on the E4 Plus with a 66% bigger battery. I know the size of the battery only tells part of the story on how long the battery will last. I’m amazed at the difference in battery life between the G4 Plus & G5 Plus - two phones with identical sized batteries. Can anybody weigh on battery life of the G5 Plus vs. E4 Plus or any other first-hand differences to be aware of (besides the obvious specs I can look up online)? At this point I’m thinking she may be better off saving the $120, getting the E4 Plus, and hopefully getting better battery life out of it. Any other thoughts on these two phones or others to check out (Moto only please), would be much appreciated!
