Motorola Moto E3 Power is very simple looking device, nothing very fancy here. It’s build out of plastic but feels very solid and rigid in hands. Its design is very similar to Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. Back cover is removable and battery as well. On the front, it has got a 5-inch display and a front firing speaker.
Let us take a look at the phone from different angles.
Front Top features a earpiece grill, Proximity, and 5MP front camera.
On the front bottom there’s is a front firing speaker and on-screen navigation keys.
bottom part has got nothing apart from a micro-USB port.
Top part consist of a 3.5mm headphone jack port which lies in the centre.
On the left, there is a regular volume up & down button and a texturized power button.
Back cover is removable which give access to the dual-SIM slot and a micro-SD card expansion slot. Battery is also removable here.
It features a 8MP rear and a 5MP front selfie cam. Cameras are quite decent and performs good in natural lightning condition, nothing very exceptional though. It captures a good amount of detail, and colour reproduction is quite natural and although low light shots came out to be full of noise. Front camera takes decent selfies with beauty mode.
It sports a 5-inch HD (720p) resolution display with 67.5% screen to body ratio. The display is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and comes with an oleo-phobic coating. It has got a pixel density of 294ppi and offers a good experience in bright sunlight when the screen brightness is full. Overall the display is bright and crisp with good colour reproduction and nice viewing angles.
Motorola Moto E3 Power has a MediaTek quad-core processor clocked at 1GHz, which is a decent processor and is paired with 2GB of RAM. It can handle all the low to mid range games pretty well with medium or high graphics settings. High end games may not run smooth with the type of hardware it offers.

This phone packs a good set of specification and comes at a good price point too. Moto E3 is one of the rarest phone which provides stock Android experience in this price segment. It toughest competitor is Xiaomi Redmi 3s which packs a better camera, bigger battery, and a better overall build quality. Although there nothing very exciting about this device but getting this phone for the price INR 7,999 is something a quality lover will choose.
