Big screen phone without the bulk

The 5.3-inch Max Vision display means there’s no need to squint to make out what’s on your phone. It’s large enough to enjoy all your favourite movies and TV shows while you’re on the train, since the 18:9 ratio lets you see more of the picture. Read entire articles without having to scroll endlessly, and lose yourself in games on a wider-than-wide landscape view. 

Unlock your phone using your fingerprint

Forget about remembering passcodes, now you can use your fingerprint to unlock you phone. Just touch the fingerprint reader to wake up and unlock your phone in an instant.


Great photos, even when it’s getting dark

Take photos you’ll be proud to share with your friends, even when it’s dark and gloomy outside. Low light enhancement gets great results, even indoors. The rear 8MP camera focuses instantly so you can capture all those blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments. And don’t forget the 5MP selfie camera – it has its own flash to do your portraits justice.



Enjoy the latest Android Oreo (Go Edition)

Get the best user experience without running out of space, thanks to Android Oreo (Go Edition). There are fewer pre-installed apps on board, just the essentials you know and love, so you can fit more of what you want on your phone. A built-in data saver helps you keep on top of your data use, while Google Play Protect keeps your device safe from anything malicious.


Smooth operator

You’ll love the nippy performance of the Moto E5 Play. The quad-core processor makes everything run like clockwork. You’ll notice just how smooth everything feels when it comes to playing games, and watching movies. 

Make room for more

The Moto E5 Play comes with 16GB of storage already built-in. Greedy for more? Then go big, and insert a microSD card for up to a whopping 128GB.
