Motorola had a name for quality. This phone is very difficult to use and does not perform well. Junk regardless of price!!

This is my second Moto phone, my other was a G4, whose battery died at 18 months. I prefer this new one, it could be because it has android 8 vs 7. Another good featureÂ’s the removable battery. Charging doesnÂ’t take too long, screen is easy to read and is responsive. ItÂ’s probably the best phone for the price.
moe, 15 Sep 2018how do u use it , having trouble with just answering it. help please U swipe across the screen 2 ansa incoming calls
Elysiance, 11 Sep 2018I bought this yesterday. As people said, Lonovo has destroyed the quality of Motorola phones... moreTotally agree. Bad design, by putting volume cantrol on right side with the power button. Have unintentionally turned off phone too many times, trying to adjust volume. Photo Gallery is another issue. Attempts at transferring photos from device to SD card was a fail. IT makes a separate album for EACH individule photo. (That's around 500 pics/albums!?) At this point, all I can say is I sure miss my SAMSUNG...
The buttons are embedded in the removable back cover. To access the SIM card slot, that cover must be taken off and it is very easy to break it in the process, especially around those buttons, where it's very thin. The worst comes now: Motorola does not sell replacement back covers. The only option they offer is to replace the entire phone, against a "physical damage" fee. In short, if that removable back cover happens to break, this (otherwise pretty good) phone is doomed. I find that unacceptable.

... moreThere is also the Motorola moto e5 (XT1920DL) by Simple Mobile, a MVNO for T-Mobile.
It also supports T-Mobile's 600mhz Band 71.
Picked one up for $15 brand new in open box. I'm just gonna play with it and see what it can do without ever putting a sim card in it. Every app on the thing, every single feature, is designed to collect personal information of some kind. It's basically an advertising-delivery platform that simultaneously hoovers up every possible scrap of information about you, "the user." "The used" would be closer to the truth.
Alex, 23 May 2018Almost all motorola phone The bezzel is too thick... NO GOOD AT ALL. I was the motorolla fans.... moreBut I like the thick bezel.
Why does a side of a phone have to be all screen?
I don't like notches and such.
The E5 Play XT1921-1 supports these bands:
The Moto e5 Play XT-1921-3, the T-Mobile model, supports:
I have tested the T-Mobile Moto e5 Play XT-1921-3 and it supports voice over LTE/HD voice.
The T-mobile model also has no fingerprint reader.
I was looking for a basic Android phone and decided to try this one.
For its price (CDN $150), my expectations were not high but this phone has indeed surprised me.
+ Stock Android or at least very few vendor app. Less bloat = more speedy.
+ Decent battery. I charge every 2 days with minimal to average usage.
+ Removable battery and back cover
+ microSD card slot
+ Good camera snap speed
+ Clear call quality using speaker and mic
+ I really like the fingerprint reader. No need to enter patterns (but you still can).
+ Android Oreo
+ CDN $150
+ Did I mention the speedy performance?
- No NFC (I don't use it so it's not really a problem for me).
- The textured back isn't "grippy" enough (just buy a case, problem solved)
- No blinking notification (it has the hardware so this depends entirely on the software which they can add anytime through an update). However, it's got "Moto display" which nicely fades in and out when you get notifications. You can also download apps that can enable the notification light if you really want it.
That's everything I could think of at the moment. Hopefully, this device will last for a long time.
So far, I am pleased with this phone. It does everything I need. With its price/performance ratio, you can't beat it. My previous phone was more expensive than this one but not faster.

I have had this smartphone for almost two weeks now. Purchased it from O2 on PAYG in the UK for £80. So far I am impressed. Well worth the money. Would recommend. For calls, texts, some web browsing and basic photos it is more than capable. It even says "Hello Moto" :-) Plus it also has a fingerprint reader. Still not sure about Android Go though.
