Eyeing up the Moto G4

Sadly, terrible battery life and an underwhelming camera leave little reason to recommend it, and those serious flaws make the E5 feel decidedly average.

Nice ’n easy

from GSMArena

Having a decent looking Xperia E-series member must feel nice for Sony. The phone looks solid on the outside, but is having a hard time matching the specs of the competition on the inside. Nothing we didn't already suspect would be amiss, but that poor battery life is a hard pill to swallow.

It's not often we get to say this, but it's probably best that, for the time being, you stay put and steer clear of the Xperia E5. That's not because it's a problematic device—the very opposite in fact! As a whole, we were pleasantly surprised by Sony's work with this affordable, €199 (~$210) smartphone, which performed well across the board. A very welcome surprise!
