    I am current using a MOTO X generation 2 and the battery is getting tired. I am not a power user in any sense; read some news groups, email, Facebook, take a few low res pictures, all of which the MOTO X does fine. Problem is I run out of battery mid afternoon.

    Looking at the new MOTO E4 Plus. Slightly larger screen but lower resolution. Slower processor 1.4 (E) vs 2.5 GHz (X). More memory and the same amount of RAM. Android 7 (E4) vs Android 6 (X). E4 does not have NFC but I don't use it on my MOTO X. Here is the biggie 5000 mAh (E3) vs 2800 mAh (X).

    Moto E4 Plus is $140 @ Amazon Prime with ad screens.

    Here is a complete side by side comparison:

    Question (or your opinions), will I be happy with this new phone

    I think ad screens would drive me crazy.

    The ads are only on the lock screen. I have the same on my Kindle and I never really notice them.

    My real concern will the slower processor bother me (and will I notice any real difference). Also will the lower resolution screen be an issue?

    If you haven't made a choice yet look at the G5 Plus. It can be had for $250 or less now and is fantastic for a low budget phone. The 3000 mAh battery is plenty for that device and easily got me through the day with power to spare. I can barely say that for my Pixel XL and never came close with the smaller Pixel. If you don't mind a mediocre camera give it a look.

    Thought I would update y'all. I bought the Moto E4 Plus unlocked directly from Motorola ($150). Bought the 16K version but in retrospect should have got the 32K version for $10 more (the phone has a microSD card slot). Had a little push from the fact that I smashed the glass on my Moto X G2 last week. Moved all my apps and accounts Tuesday evening and fully charged the battery. The reason I looked at this phone in the first place was the 5000 mAh battery. I have used the phone for 2 days now and I still have 51% battery remaining. I am not a power user (no music and few videos) but I have used my email, sent texts and web browsed a fair amount each day. Needless to say it has exceeded my expectations for battery life.

    All in all it seems like a great phone for a user of my needs. Should have mentioned I am a cheap skate and the price was an important point ( I have seldom paid over $200 for a phone, actually only once).
