Highlight of these phones is 18:9 display.Let us see that  specifications of these phones are good or not? Moto E5 is priced at 9999, however Moto E5 Plus is priced at 11999.

Both of these phones are not as per expectations. E series of Moto was known for low budget, but it looks like Moto is no more for budget range. Specifications on these phones are completely budget oriented but unfortunately phones are priced higher than expectations. We have a lot of options at 10k or 12K which comes with much better options. Redmi 5, Redmi Note 5, Zenfone Max M1 Pro, RealMe 1 etc are phones which have much powerful processor and camera. I’m completely disagree with pricing of this phone.
