Announced back in June, Motorola’s Moto E4 Plus is yet another addition to the Lenovo subsidiary’s incredibly crowded and confusing smartphone lineup for 2017. Even so, it has yet to make its U.S. debut, though that has changed with the phone’s availability in the country.
To quickly recap, the Moto E4 Plus stays true to its name with a 5.5-inch, 1,280 x 720 resolution display, with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 427 quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM powering the phone. You can get the Moto E4 Plus with either 16 GB or 32 GB of on-board storage, though a microSD card slot is available regardless of the amount.

As the name also implies, the Moto E4 Plus’ highlight feature is its huge 5,000 mAh battery, which Motorola promises will keep the phone ticking for up to two days on a single charge. You will even find a fingerprint sensor with gesture support below the display, so the Moto E4 Plus certainly ticks the right boxes when it comes to budget phones, at least on paper.
If any of that grabbed your attention, the good news is that the Moto E4 Plus is available to purchase from Verizon, Best Buy, and Amazon. There are several things to keep in mind, the first being that only the Verizon model is available now – you can only pre-order the phone through the latter two, with availability starting from August 11.
Furthermore, prices differ depending on where you buy the Moto E4 Plus from. Verizon sells the phone starting at $130, but you will not be able to bring it to GSM carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T. Amazon, meanwhile, included the Moto E4 Plus as part of its “Prime-Exclusive Phone” line-up. As such, you can buy the phone at a discount starting at $140, though there are ad-free versions that start at $180. Finally, Best Buy offers the regular, unlocked version starting at $180.
