Motorola Moto E3 Power First Impressions
In October 2016, Motorola launched in the Philippines the Moto E3 Power, along with the Moto Z, Moto Z Play, and Moto G4 Plus. The E3 Power is the company’s budget offering that packs modest specs but with 4G LTE, and an above average 3,500mAh battery. Check out our initial impressions below.
Given its pricing, the Moto E3 Power looks its part. Meaning it has a modest build and design, so there’s a few unattractive features like the thick top and bottom bezels and the chunky build.
The front features the 5-inch HD display which equates to the 294ppi. Above it are the receiver, 5MP front camera, and sensors. Down below is the loudspeaker and mic. Capacitive keys are absent since it uses on-screen navigation buttons.
The left side is devoid of any physical keys, while the right side has the power/lock and volume buttons.
Up top is the headphone port, while down at the bottom is the microUSB port.
Take a look at the back and you will find the 8MP camera, microphone, and LED flash. The backplate, which has a nice textured finish, is removable which gives you access to two SIM card slots, microSD card slot, and the removable battery.
On the hand, the E3 Power feels chunky at 9.6mm, but the curved sides and its small footprint makes it easy to hold. The plastic build might not impress those looking for something premium, but it has made the device relatively light given its above average battery.
