Motorola Launches Moto E4: Specifications, Review, Features and Price

Standard

So Motorola has very recently, launched the Moto E4 smartphone in Nigeria. This, they did amongst others like the Moto E4 Plus, Moto C 3G & 4G variants and the Moto C Plus. With all these launches, they announced their “official” return to the Nigerian market. We think the market did miss them after all. This post would take care of all you need to know about the Moto E4 from Motorola. Say hello.

MOTO E4 KEY SPECS

  • DISPLAY: 5.0 inches
  • PROCESSOR: MediaTek MT6737M processor
  • OS: Android v7.0
  • INTERNAL STORAGE: 16 GB
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • CAMERA (REAR): 8 MP
  • CAMERA (FRONT): 5 MP
  • BATTERY: 2,800 mAh

Moto E4 specs and price

DESIGN

The Moto E4 is one that looks so sleek and shiny. It comes in two colour variants – White and Black. E4 measures 144.7 x 72.3 x 8.9 mm while it also weighs a quite heavy 151 g. It sports a physical button just below the display, while the volume and power buttons are strategically placed on the right hand side of the user.

DISPLAY

The size of the E4’s HD IPS display is measured up to 5.0 inches. The screen resolution is pegged at 720 x 1280 Pixels, and it sure has a multitouch feature. Taking care of the on-screen images and icons of the Moto E4 is a pixel density amounting to 294 ppi. This sure would produce nice and bright images.

PROCESSOR AND OS

Moto E4 is built on a MediaTek MT6737M processor and has its processor speed pegged at 1.3 GHz. It also runs on the latest Android v7.0 Nougat operating system. Would soon not be the latest anymore though.
Moto E4 specifications

INTERNAL STORAGE AND RAM

For files and documents storage, music and videos too, the E4 avails users with a 16 GB storage. This storage can be expanded to the tune of 128 GB with the help of a micro SD card. A 2 GB RAM is what takes care of the smooth running of applications on the Moto E4. So expect switching between apps should be a walkover.

CAMERA

On the rear of the E4 is an 8 MP camera with a single LED flash. While on its front, there’s a 5 MP camera. The front camera also has a LED flash. Features of the rear camera include Geo Tagging, continuous Shooting, High Dynamic Range mode (HDR), Auto Flash, Face detection and Touch to focus.

NETWORK AND CONNECTIVITY

One important feature of the Moto E4 smartphone is that it supports the 4G network. Bluetooth is of v4.0, with Wi-Fi 802.11 and a Micro USB port v2.0.

BATTERY

As its powerhouse, the E4 packs a Li-Ion non-removable 2,800 mAh battery. Obviously, it would be just right for an average user and maybe the heavy ones too. Heavy smartphone users might want to go for some more than that.

PRICE OF THE MOTOROLA MOTO E4

The price of the Moto E4 is pegged at N64,000. It can be found on online stores around the country. The price also depends on your location in the country.

TechPill: Best Feature Phones to buy in 2017

Best Feature Phones to buy in 2017

A feature phone (also known as a Basic phone) is a mobile phone that possesses simple and general features such as the ability to make phone calls, access the Internet and store and play music but lacks the advanced functionality of a smartphone; as Google Dictionary defines it. Feature phones have been in existence since time immemorial. Before the advent of smartphones in the mid 90’s, feature phones have been in existence and witnessed huge acceptance.

The first feature phone to have existed (the Motorola DynaTAC) was released as far back as 1984. The device was tagged a “Basic device” due to its inability to do anything more than making voice.

With the snowballing popularity and acceptance that the smartphone have gained, one would expect basic phones to go into extinction. Quite surprising that reverse is the case. Albeit feature (basic) phones they have been well overshadowed by the smartphones, they are still very much used by numerous people for several reasons, one of which is to support and reduce the workload on their new smartphone.

It is in this light that we shall be looking at the best feature phones to buy in 2017.

BEST FEATURE PHONES TO BUY IN 2017

In no particular order;

1. Nokia 105

 

Best Feature Phones to buy in 2017

Nokia 105

The Nokia 105 is the first version of the Nokia 105 series and it was released in 2013. The device has a small 1.45-inch screen that is duly protected by a plastic material lined with the outer body. The keypad of the Nokia 105 is made of rubber which leaves them susceptible to peeling and wearing off; likewise being damaged or punctured by a sharp object.

The Nokia 105 which has room for only one SIM card has a simple body design entirely made of plastic, a flash light at the top and is ultra light (weighs only 70 grams). Powering the Nokia 105 is a removable and replaceable 800mAh (BL-5CB) battery pack which can last months on normal usage.

2. Nokia 105 (2017)

Nokia 105 (2017)

The Nokia 105 (2017) is the 2017 version of the Nokia 105 series. This feature phone is the upgraded variant of the Nokia 105 (2013). This device was fine tuned both in the design and inner compartment. It comes in a more attractive aesthetic, slimmer look and more curved edges. The display is a 1.4-inch screen with 120 x 160 pixels and 143 ppi screen resolution and pixel density respectively.

The Nokia 105 (2017) is slightly heavier than the Nokia 105, has the same 800mAh battery capacity and tiny 4MB internal storage space probably to store contacts and messages. Either way, if you are on the look out to purchase a second device to support your smartphone, the Nokia 105 (2017) is one of the best out of the numerous options to choose from.

3. Imose Kampe

Imose Kampe

Imose Kampe

You see the Imose Kampe, it is not anyway like the regular feature/basic phones you come across everyday. This device comes with a monster 10,000mAh battery capacity which puts the device in the same caliber as the OUKITEL K10000 with similar battery size. Isn’t that crazy?!? This basic phone has more battery juice than you will find on many smartphones and flagship devices from many top OEM. Now one can understand the rationale behind the big size of the device; the equally big battery.

Just like the strong battery life, the Imose Kampe body and structure also reeks strength​! The device is big and bold. Same as the buttons and all other aspects of the device like the extra-huge flashlight that’s located at the top and the wide speaker at the rear.

Another feature of the Imose Kampe that I find particularly interesting and worth stating is the fact that the device can be used as a power-bank to charge other device like your smartphones, MP3 player, tablets and others. The device which has a 1.8-inch QVGA display has a USB port through which you can use in charging other devices. The screen resolution is capped at 320 x 240 pixels.

The Imose Kampe could be a quite a burden to the hands and pocket due to its weight. That definitely seems like the sacrifice one has to make for owning such a dual-purpose phone. With this basic phone, you don’t have to worry about owning a powerbank anymore or about frequent Power outage​.

4. Ntel NOVA

ntel Nova

Ntel NOvA

The Ntel NOVA device is a feature phone with some little touches that makes it seem like a smartphone. The device is a very sleek and compact device that boasts of a simple interface with the 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen taking a higher percentage/ratio of the frontal interface. Right below the main display, there are four dedicated keys for easy and quick access to certain apps which include WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter and Search.

ntel nova

Ntel Nova feature phone rear view

On the rear, there’s a back cover that is also made from plastic that is finely coated with paint. The Ntel NOVA is available in three colours; Grey, Gold and Rose Gold. The rear of the Nova feature phone also houses the camera, LED flash, the loudspeaker grill, and the NTEL logo.

Moving to the internal features of the Ntel NOVA, it supports dual SIM card (micro SIM) which in turn supports 2G, 3G and surprisingly, 4G/VoLTE. 4G LTE is something most smartphones don’t even have the capability to support. The Ntel NOVA having 4G LTE support is definitely a big deal. However, the device lacks WIFi but can be used as a router (WiFi Hotspot) to share date to other devices.

As earlier mentioned, the Ntel NOVA boasts of a camera at the rear. The camera is of 5-megapixels and it enjoys a LED flash support which is beneath the camera. Also, at the front, there’s a tiny 2-megapixels camera which doesn’t do much justice to selfies. You also get a huge 8GB storage space to keeps files and all media. The battery is a removable 1,800mAh Li-Ion battery with a standby duration of 7 days.

The Ntel NOVA can be said to be the device that  is on the fence; it is in between being a feature device and a smartphone.

Although the Metro B313E isn’t the first basic phone made by the phone manufacturer, the Metro B313E just happens to be the best choice of device when considering purchasing a basic or feature phone.

The Samsung Metro B313E is powered by a huge 1,000mAh Li–Ion battery which provides a 720 minutes talk-time and will last longer than your average smartphone due to little processes running on it. This is just the device to own as a back-up to your main smartphone so as not to miss important updates, calls or texts.

6. Nokia 3310 (2017)

Nokia 3310

Nokia 3310 (2017)

This Best Feature Phones to buy in 2017 list will definitely make sense without the inclusion of this iconic and legendary feature phone. But to start with, the Nokia 3310 did not first look all colourful and classy as it appears in the image above. This was how it looked like when it was first introduced and released by Nokia as far back as September 1, 2000.

The old Nokia 3310

The old Nokia 3310 is a device which people loved majorly for its strong battery life and its ruggedness. Earlier tagged the “Breaker of floors” owing to its durable body build.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

On to the 2017 version of the 3310, the specs are total improvements from the older 3310. It comes with a 2.4-inch screen, a newly introduced 2-megapixel camera and a large 1,200 mAh removable battery which, surprisingly can last 31 days on standby (that’s averagely more than a month) and can produce 22 hours of talk time.

To spice things up, the Nokia 3310 (2017) comes pre-installed with Opera Mini browser which allows room for some light 2.5G internet surfing. There is also a huge 16GB storage space that can be expanded to 32GB using the available micro SD card slot.

7. Nokia 222

Nokia 222

Nokia 222

The Nokia 222 is another device off the Nokia feature phone series. This device is somewhat the perfect feature phone to own. The 2.4-inch display is very much enough for quality visual experience. As a fact, it has the biggest screen size you can find on a feature phone. The in-built storage is small (16MB) but can be expanded to 32GB using the micro SD card slot.

The design of the Nokia 222 is beautiful, simple, slim and classy. It’s definitely worth being among the Best Feature Phones to buy in 2017. Asides the basic features of this device, you also get a 2.0-megapixels camera to take some low quality images. To finish things up, Nokia embedded a 1,100mAh Li-ion battery on the Nokia 222. The battery is removable and replaceable. This means you can have and keep extra batteries as a back-up.

There are a number of beneficial applications that you can gain from. The apps include Facebook – to stay connected to family and friends, Alarm, Calendar, Multimedia – to play multimedia files, and a couple of games to keep out boredom.

Once again, Oppo copies Apple on the Oppo F3 RED Edition

Standard

When Oppo released the Oppo F3, it raised a lot of controversies. Although the device in itself gained a lot of attention and approval from fans of the smartphone brand. Lovers of good pictures and selfie freaks particularly loved it for its top quality camera sensors. More so, it is quite strange and not cliché to see a smartphone with a single rear camera and dual front camera. Definitely, that’s the reason behind the high quality of pictures the smartphones produce.

Oppo also released the Oppo F3 PLUS, which was released before the Oppo F3 itself. The device was an improvement of the Oppo F3 and also had great dual selfie camera.

However, despite the level of uniqueness of the Oppo F3 and Oppo F3 Plus, the devices have a bit of plagiarism displayed in its design. The Oppo F3 and F3 Plus, design-wise, are living replica of the iPhone 6. See for yourself.

This can be overlooked, right? Of course it can. But when after this, the company further goes to copy Apple’s concept of releasing the Red iPhone, then it starts to become worrisome. Why don’t I just buy the Red iPhone itself instead of a look-alike?

 

Oppo F3 RED Edition

Oppo F3 RED Edition

Oppo have announced that they would be releasing a Red version of the Oppo F3 and Oppo F3 Plus. An image used in the announcement is all that is available at the moment. No information as to whether the Red Edition of the Oppo F3 and Oppo F3 Plus will come with better specs or maybe the colour will be the only differentiating factor.

Oppo F3 RED Edition

Oppo F3 RED Edition

One can’t help but wonder why the smartphone company would want to copy anyone else. I mean, they already proved to be a company that stands out with different devices they have released in the past; like the Oppo A77, the Oppo R11 and to mention a few.

And to think that the company (Oppo) was the highest selling smartphone company in China last year (2016) , this is totally unexpected of them. God help them they retain their position at the top this year.

For throwback purpose, the Oppo F3 has a non-removable 3200mAH battery, 5.5-inch 1080p display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection, a 13MP rear camera, 4GB of ram, 64GB of internal storage and a MediaTek Octa-core processor (1.5GHz).

The F3 Plus on the other hand comes with a non-removable 4000mAH battery, 6.0-inch 1080p display with Gorilla Glass 5 protection, a 16MP rear camera, 4GB of ram, 64GB of internal storage and a Snapdragon 653 processor.

What do you think of Oppo’s move to release the Oppo F3 RED Edition?

Xiaomi MI5X smartphone Specification, Review and Price

Standard

Xiaomi, who was once known to be known as the number one smartphone manufacturer in China is back again with yet another smartphone that will give top manufacturers like Apple, Samsung, Sony, Huawei etc, a run for their money. Although Xiaomi‘s name and reputation may not be anywhere near that of some top OEMs, but one thing is certain – their products and devices rivals and surpasses that of other supposed top dogs.

The Xiaomi MI5X is a good example of one of such device that rivals the best devices we have seen from the likes of Samsung, LG, Huawei and other top companies in the smartphone industry.

Let’s have a peek at the Xiaomi MI5X shall we?

Xiaomi MI5X Review

DESIGN

Xiaomi MI5X

Xiaomi MI5X

The Xiaomi MI5X has a super stylish exterior that when looked closely (especially the frontal), shares some similarities with the Apple iPhone 7. However, the MI5X still has its own huge share of uniqueness. As a matter of fact, the beauty of the device can be perceived right form the device’s package.

Xiaomi MI5X

Xiaomi MI5X device’s package

The box that houses the device right from the factory is a petite and compact brown carton with the Xiaomi logo placed neatly at the top right corner of the package.

The device is slim at 7.3 mm and likewise is less stress to the hands and pockets owing to it 165 grams weight.

The frontal is neatly embedded with the proximity sensor, the selfie/secondary camera, earpiece, the display screen and the Color LED notifications lights. A dual camera set-up can be found at the rear (together with a Dual-tone LED flash), and fingerpint scanner.

The loudspeaker grill, 3.5mm earphone jack and charging port are all located at the bottom of the MI5X.

DISPLAY

Xiaomi MI5X

Xiaomi MI5X display

The Xiaomi MI5X is adorned with a 5.5-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) IPS display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The display provides high image clarity and crispness, thanks to the very high pixel density (401 Pixels per inch). The display/screen is enclosed on the inside with a 2.5D curved glass screen. There is however no form of screen protection whatsoever which is quite below expectation due to the fragile nature of this device.

PROCESSOR, OS & STORAGE

This device is solid and powerful. It functions and runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 MSM8953 ARM Cortex-A53 processor (just like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X smartphone). The processor has eight cores (Octa-Core) and a frequency speed of 2GHz. To handle graphics, a Qualcomm Adreno 506 graphics processing unit in store.

There is a huge RAM sized at 4GB, internal storage of 64GB which is equivalent to 11636 Songs, 25600 Photos and 914 Videos and runs on the latest Android OS (Nougat v7.0)

CAMERA & BATTERY

The camera on this smartphone is impressive.

DESIGN

Imose Bam is sure a very portable device, as it seems to fit to use. The smartphone is very sleek and shiny, and the back panel is most likely made of plastic. The rear camera is carefully and rightly mounted at the upper centre of the back, and the flashlight placed just by the side. Power and volume buttons located on the right side of the phone. This new Imose phone comes in three colour variants – Gold, black and white.

Specifications od Imose Bam device

DISPLAY

A very interactive and responsible 4.0-inch display is what is present in the phone. The screen resolution is pegged at 400 x 800 pixels. This 4.0-inch display the Bam spots is what informs its portability. The Proper operation would require just one of your palms. The display type is an FWVGA LCD.

PROCESSOR AND OS

The Imose Bam runs off an Android operating system v6.0 MarshMallow. It is laudable that a supposed entry-level smartphone features this OS. Others are usually addicted to the KitKat 4.4.2. It is also built on a Quad-core SC7731 processor. The processor speed is set at a somewhat not impressive 1.2 GHz.

INTERNAL STORAGE AND RAM

For your storage of music, videos, documents and other files, Bam avails users with a 4 GB storage space. This space can then be expanded to the tune of 32 GB with the help of a micro SD card. The smartphone comes with a 1 GB RAM which aims to take care of the smooth running of apps and switching through them.

CAMERA

Imose Bam device specifications

On the rear of the Imose Bam, there’s a 3 MP camera, which comes with a flashlight. While on the front, the camera quality is pegged at 1.3 MP. You would have to overlook this department, at least because of the entry level status of the phone.

BATTERY

As its powerhouse, the Imose Bam packs a 1,800 mAh battery power. This could be acceptable for entry-level devices. However, it also sends an unmistakable message to keep off heavy and average smartphone users from it. The battery power, in our own opinion, can only comfortably cater for light smartphone users.
