Both are budget-oriented devices, but the Moto E5 Plus is the more advanced in terms of specs. The phone features a 6-inch HD+ display with tall 18:9 aspect ratio and 1440 x 720 resolution. Powered by a Snapdragon 435, the E5 Plus also takes advantage of 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
In the photography department, the Moto E5 Plus features a 12-megapixel main camera with f/2.0, PDAF and laser AF. On the front sits a 5-megapixel selfie snapper with f/2.0.
Perhaps the best feature of the Moto E5 Plus is that it packs a huge 5,000 mAh battery which guarantees a long battery life. The device ships with Android 8.0 Oreo on board.

Now moving on to the lower end Moto E5 Play, the device offers a 5.2-inch display with classic 16:9 aspect ratio and 720 x 1280 resolution. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 427 and sustained by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
On the back, the Moto E5 Play has an 8-megapixel camera, while on the front lives a 5-megapixel selfie snapper. The phone is powered by a much smaller 2,800 mAh battery and also runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. T-Mobile is offering for only $150 outright or for $6 down and $6 per month for 24 months.
Note that both Motorola smartphones support T-Mobile’s 600MHz band (Band 71). This means the duo takes advantage of the carrier’s new extended range of cell towers.
