    1. Based on those specs it has all the bands it needs to work on all four US national networks. Of course, Sprint and Verizon can refuse to activate it if they want.

    2. Dennis, does this "Verizon can refuse to activate" apply for the near future $900 Galaxy Note 8 Universal Unlocked with bands for all four US national networks? Can Verizon refuse to activate these on TracFone brands?

    3. For Verizon the inserting an active sim / activating a new sim in a Verizon phone trick should still work?

    4. verizon can block the activation of any IMEI they want. But I doubt they will actually block the unlocked E4 or Note 8. If they do SIM swapping should work unless Verizon changes the rules.

    5. I had my service suspended by Verizon for swapping my sim from an approved device into a device that wasn't approved by them. It took me a full weekend to get service restored.

  3. 5,000mah battery? I'm sold

  4. Would've liked the E4 Plus better if it had 3GB of RAM and a 1080p display.

    2GB is basically bottom of the barrel at this point.

  5. The fine print says the fingerprint reader will only work if Verizon or US Cellular is your carrier. I thought the point of unlocked cell phones is the carrier doesn't control the ROMS and can't kill certain features. For some reason Motorola restricted the use of the fingerprint reader.

    1. Actually it says "Fingerprint sensor included on unlocked moto e⁴ and moto e⁴ for Verizon and for U.S. Cellular." To me that means that the phone will be sold by some other unnamed carriers who have asked for the finger print reader to be omitted to save costs. It's common for carrier branded phones to have missing features compared with the unlocked models.

    1. The E4 has a removable battery, the E4 Plus does not.

    While I'd prefer removable battery, I can live with easily replaceable (a la the G4+ I have) as opposed to not (G5). As a heavy user of my device, I fully expect to have to replace the battery at least twice before I'm ready for a device upgrade. I refuse to deal with all that glue to do so, however.

  9. I guess that both models have the accelerometer and compass (magnetometer). Do they have a notification LED ?

    1. As far as I know neither Sprint or Motorola have said whether the E4 models can be used on Sprint.

  11. The Moto E4 5" is exactly the size phone I want.Trying to decide between the Moto G4 Play 5" and the Moto E4 5". Seems like similar specs. At the $129 price point it is about the same price as the Moto G4 Play. Which would be the better buy? I'd appreciate any comments or recommendations. Thanks.

  13. I'd trade the metal body for a SD430 processor but all in all, a good showing. I'm hoping they sell well so they're cheaper on the used market. There's not much to offer below $100. After a long time I found a g4 on Craigslist for $100 but I'm not thrilled with how big the phone is...

  14. Thanks. I will be buying a Moto E4 when it is available.

  15. I wonder if these Moto E4 models will be VoLTE capable on ATT, T-mobile, or Verizon (any or all ) ?

  16. Will the moto 4e work with tracfone?

    1. Yes, the factory unlocked Moto e will work with a TracFone AT&T or T-Mobile BYOP SIM and possibly with a TracFone Verizon BYOP SIM.

  17. Still waiting for the Moto E4+ to buy on Amazon. Do you think they will sell the E4+ with the Amazon lock screen like the E4? Also, any possible date when the sell date will be?

  18. Assuming verizons e4 is crippled like their g4 is and that it cantbe used on any other carrier or non-verizon mvno, and further crippled in that it cant be bootloader unlocked? can an unlocked e4 be b0otloader unlocked like many other motos can?

    ReplyDelete
  19. it has lte band 13, so if verizon refuses you service, contact the fcc. they have allowed verizon to use that band under agreement that verizon must provide service to any phone that can operate on band 13 and has fcc approval for sale and use in this country.

  20. Got it from Amazon for cheaper. Will use with Ting.
