Phone Device Choice



Am shopping for RW phone in the $200 range. Thinking larger screen and Latest OS are good to get.
That means choice is between:

Moto E4 Plus
Moto G4

Any knowledgeable users have recommendation or opinion which I should go with?

Thanks much.


between the E4 Plus and G4 I would lean to the E4 Plus (it’s this Years Motorola’s high end Budget phone) vs last years mid line phone

if it was me I would also look at the Moto G5 Plus at $229 (2GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage) as it’s theis years high end mid-line phone

I have observed that Motorola \does not always give major OS updates to it’s budget phones,5498,5177


Thanks DRM186.

  • I read that the G4 Plus has outstanding battery length, due to it’s lower screen resolution.
  • The G5 Plus looks like it has a smaller screen but higher resolution (so less battery time?).

Any thoughts on those tradeoffs?


Actually, per this article: ), the G5 Plus has a more efficient processor leading to more run time than the G4 Plus.


Thanks Mb2. I’ll try out the G5 Plus!


The G5PLUS 64 gb is $50 off from republic wireless this Friday, August 25th.

New phones and calendar app

I’ve been amazed at the G5 Plus battery life. On a typical day with moderate usage I’m often well above 60-70% of battery life at the end of the day, compared to teens-30% left on my G4 Plus. I went camping this past weekend. My phone was almost fully charged when I arrived at about 8 p.m. on Friday. I left it on all weekend with very little usage - just some emails, texts, and photos and it was down to 20% at 10 a.m. on Sunday. My G4 Plus, Moto X, and Moto X2 wouldn’t have lasted that long. It felt like the days of my Droid Razr Maxx.


Thanks a million Grandbobby. Don’t think I ever would have known that if it weren’t for your post!


Thanks too, Purple_Sunday. I trust an RW user’s feedback more than the allegedly “impartial” blog reviews all over! I’ll go with the G5.
