Moto E4 Plus join’s Amazon’s lineup of Prime Exclusive Phones

The Moto E4 Plus is the newest phone to be added to Amazon’s lineup of Prime Exclusive Phones. The regular price of the phone is $179.99, but if you’re fine with seeing ads on the lock screen and are a Prime Member, you’ll save $40 and pay only $139.99. This is Motorola’s newest phone and will be released later this week on August 11th. It features a 5.5″ 720p screen, quad-core 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 427 CPU, 2 GB RAM, 13 MP rear camera, and 5 MP front camera. It has 16 GB or internal storage or 32 GB for $20 more, but both models have microSD card slots for expanding the internal space. The phone is running Google’s latest Android 7.1 Nougat operating system and is compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon networks. The Moto E4 Plus is $40 more expensive than the $99.99 non-plus Moto E4 which was released about a month ago. For the extra $40 you get a larger screen, faster CPU, better cameras, and a battery that is nearly twice as large.

    I just bought a discounted Moto E4 through Amazon, even though I knew the E4 Plus likely was coming to the Amazon Prime Exclusives program.

    Reason being one difference you don’t mention above: the E4 comes with a removable, replaceable battery, whereas the E4 Plus, in order to get the larger battery capacity, has a non-removable battery.

    I just had a battery swell up and die on a less than year old BLU R1 HD that I bought through the Amazon Prime Exclusives Program (at their discount). The battery died, and thus that meant an otherwise perfectly good phone had to be thrown away.

    That was the first, and hopefully last, time I’ll ever be buying a mobile phone with a non-replaceable battery.

    BTW, it kind of looks like Alcatel has replaced BLU as the lowest price vendor in the Amazon Exclusives program. I don’t see any BLU phones in the group now, but there’s four from Alcatel and four from Motorola now, along with the lone Nokia model.

    You can find the battery replacements for most non-removeable battery phones and they are not hard to replace. For example, you can order the R1HD battery with all neccessary tools to replace it on Amazon for less than $15. I recently got the Verizon Prepaid Moto E4 from my local Walmart for $39.88 plus about $3.29 tax then ordered the $2.xx unlock code off of eBay to use this phone on AT&T and T-Mo. The E4 is a great phone for the money with excellent fingerprint scanner. However, I am going to get the E4 Plus, the 32GB internal storage opion, when Amazon starts shipping these.

      Thanks for the tip about non-removable batteries in fact being removable.

      I’ve never monkeyed with something like that, but since I’ve already got a dead phone, nothing much to lose in trying.

      But still for the future, I think I’ll stick to those like the regular E4 that have the designed removable battery.
