The Moto E4 Plus is a budget Android phone that costs less than $200, yet it has one superpower that brings at the top of 2017 smartphone ranks in one area: battery life.

The E4 Plus just crushes it when it comes to battery life: its 5,000 mAh battery lasts a whopping three days on a single charge with average use, and even with more intense use it would last two days plus.

So apart from its huge battery, what are the other factors that contribute to the Moto E4 Plus’s tremendous battery longevity. Here is a quick run-down of the three most important aspect of a phone’s battery experience:

  • Display: 5.5″ LCD display with 720 x 1280 pixel resolution
  • System chip: Snapdragon 427, Quad-core @ 1.4GHz, 28nm
  • Battery: 5,000 mAh battery

As you can see, the E4 Plus being a super affordable option, it has a low-res display and an unremarkable processor built on an old 28nm process. It is the extra-large battery coupled with the low-res screen that makes its magic possible.

While we cannot recommend the Moto E4 to most users out there – it does not have many exciting features nor a great camera – we can certainly recommend other device makers to take cue from the E4 Plus and give users more choice of good devices with great battery life.

*Quick charging also would not hurt. The E4 Plus lacks this feature and it takes it an excruciatingly long 3 hours and 15 minutes to fully charge it up from 0 to 100%.
