Motorola announced the Moto E6S for R $ 949 in the Brazilian market. The predecessor Moto E5 is an intermediate phone launched in April 2018 with a value of R $ 899. Both models have 2 GB RAM and 32 GB storage. The launch comes with a 6.1-inch screen, dual camera with 13 MP and depth sensor, octa-core MediaTek processor, 3,000 mAh battery and Android 9 (Pie).
The new Moto E6S is available in blue and red, while the Moto E5 can be purchased in platinum and gold colors. Check out the differences between Motorola phones.
Canvas and Design
The launch comes with a 6.1-inch LCD display. The panel is larger than the Moto E5, which features a 5.7-inch screen. Both smartphones have HD + resolution (1560 x 720 pixels). In addition, they have differences in design.
The Moto E6S has thinner side edges and a central notch, but the bottom edge is a little thick. But it still presents a more modern format than the Moto E5. The predecessor has much thicker edges that are not compatible with current phones.
At the rear the two phones remain quite different. The Moto E6S dual camera is positioned on the left side while the Moto E5’s only sensor is centered as on the Moto G7. Both have fingerprint biometrics located on the rear.
The Moto E6S comes with a dual set consisting of a 13 MP main camera and a 2 MP 3D sensor. The Moto E5 has only a 13 MP camera. Because they are more basic models, the cameras are for less demanding users with photographs, who use the camera only for the day-to-day. Both models have a front camera that captures selfies with up to 5 MP.
Performance and storage
Although both smartphones have 2 GB RAM, they are different in terms of processor. The Moto E6S comes with a MediaTek Helio P22 chip, which consists of eight cores of up to 2 GHz of power.
The older model has a Snapdragon 425 (quad-core up to 1.4 GHz). Both have storage with 32 GB, but the Moto E5 still comes with a 16 GB option. They can also have the memory expanded with the microSD card.
Despite being older, the Moto E5 has a larger component, as it comes with a capacity of 4,000 mAh versus 3,000 mAh. The old one still features fast recharge. Even with a significant difference between the models, the two batteries can supply energy for an entire day.
Android version and additional features
Android 10 is the latest system, but it doesn’t come with either smartphone. The Moto E6S leaves the factory with Android 9 (Pie), which is a more up-to-date version than Android 8 on the Moto E5.
Both have Bluetooth 4.2 and do not adhere to the new standard of USB-C connectivity, using the micro USB. However, both maintain the 3.5 mm headphone jack that until recently was the common opening for cell phones. They also don’t have NFC, so they don’t make remote payments with apps like Android Pay, for example.
The Moto E6S has now arrived at R $ 949. In the case of the E5, it was launched for R $ 899, but today it can be found with prices starting at R $ 569 in online retail. The values are subject to change depending on the offer of the day.
