    All-in, this is a great phone, especially because it is on sale even though it was just released a month ago. It outclasses the J3 Emerge on all fronts (cameras, RAM, processor, supported LTE bands). However, the photo on the BestBuy listing is WRONG--the phone does NOT have a fingerprint sensor. FYI, this is the XT1766 model of the phone, although some websites have this model number confused with the European e4 model.

    Nice phone!

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This is a nice phone if you don't care about (or can't afford) "premium" phones that do the same thing, they just cost more. It is fast and the screen looks great, and it is not bad outside in sunlight either. I was disappointed that Sprint's version doesn't have a fingerprint scanner like the picture shows above.

      Hi Mister,

      Thanks for rating this is a nice phone. Sorry to disappoint you but the Moto E4 has fingerprint feature for the particular carriers only: Verizon, US Cellular and some unlock versions. Thanks for the five stars and great feedback. We appreciate it.

    Sprint is horrible - $299?


    Really? $299 full retail price for the 16GB version - AND it's locked to Sprint on top of that!? Have you ever tried having Sprint unlock your phone after it's already been paid for in full? It's next to impossible. The unlocked 16GB version is $179, and you can use any carrier you want.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Hi DJ71,

      Prices may depend on the seller/store where it is being sold. You may try to get the Moto E4 Plus unlocked if it happens you are planning to use the phone to different carriers in the US.

    My mother loves this phone. She almost afraid to use it thinking someone might steal it. Awesome gift for someone who does require a bunch of bells and whistles. It does everything phones that cost $1000 does.

    The phone was very cheap, but gets the job done for basics. Not much memory for photos and apps though.
