I am thinking about going from Huawei ascend5w to the Moto e4 plus. How is it and who has it, are you satisfied with it? Any comments welcome. Thanks

Hello, my wife has Huawei A5w and I have Moto E4+. They are fairly similar, but I do think the Moto is overall noticeably better. The thing that stands out the most is the battery, which is really the biggest strength of the E4+. I don’t even use all of these portable battery packs anymore cause it just lasts and lasts. besides that it just seems a little more stable, I like the UI better, and the Huawei has had some speakerphone echo issues on wifi that maybe still come up sometimes. All and all I would had it would be a small upgrade, but not a huge difference. We were both coming from Moto G1 so both were good upgrades for us.

Motorola is a long time partner and arguably will have the best support out of any phone maker on Republic.


Huawei Pros:

  • Better processor.
  • More premium build.
  • Nice screen.

Cons:

  • Pretty bad UI
  • Persistent bugs due to Huawei never updating Android on the device.
  • UI bogs down the processor a lot.
  • Untested reliability as a newer manufacturer.

Motorola Pros:

  • Reputable brand.
  • Huge battery, like, massive.
  • Known to be sturdy.
  • Accessories more readily available.
  • Basically stock Android.

Cons:

  • Bulky
  • Lower res screen
  • Weaker processor
  • Just massive if in a case.

Just some of the things I’ve seen and heard from members. Both are nice phones but in the end it comes down to what you are looking for in a phone.

Hi @josephs.humgw3,

I edited your title so it is more relevant to your question, so those with either phone may be more likely to participate in the conversation.
