            From 15 March, there is again a brand-name smartphone at a bargain price at Aldi Süd: The Lenovo Moto E4 (Motorola E4) for 80 euros. Is the price good and you should buy the not-quite-fresh smartphone?
Moto E4
In August 2017, we thoroughly tested the Lenovo Moto E4. Final result: Good. We were positively impressed by the good price-performance ratio and the good workmanship, we were disturbed by the comparatively low resolution of the display and camera.
1280 × 720 pixels by 5 inches corresponds to a pixel density of 294 ppi. That's little compared to current high-end smartphones; on the other hand, the retina displays of expensive iPhones are also "only" 11 percent sharper (326 pixels per inch).
Ultimately, this assessment has done nothing, but of course the device is now six months older. The more important is the point Software: On the Moto E4 runs Android 7 Nougat, not the current version 8.1 Oreo. It is unlikely that Lenovo will bring an upgrade – buyers of the Moto E4 are therefore stuck on Android 7. Only hobbyists who are well versed with the technology and willing to lend a hand even come up with alternative ROMs like Lineage 15 on Android 8.

Currently, the cheapest deals are around 96 euros plus shipping costs respectively at 98 euros including shipping. The Aldi deal – it should cost 79.95 euros – is thus about 18 percent lower than currently cheap traders. A look at the price history of the Moto E4 shows that the device was already cheaper than at present. At the end of February it was 89 euros. Still more than Aldi.
In addition, however, comes that the discounter – as usual – an Aldi Talk SIM card with 10 euro starting credit attached. The smartphone is SIM-lock-free, so you can use any other card, but who decides to Aldi, ultimately gets even 10 euros discount – that would be just under 29 percent compared to the currently cheapest offer.
alternatives
To be clear: the price point of 80 euros is hot. The choice of alternatives is not really big. Other smartphones in this price range all have such strong limitations that we would not recommend them in good conscience.
There is the Wiko Sunny 2 Plus, whose display resolution with 854 × 480 pixels is still far below that of the Moto E4, but on the other hand it offers no advantages like a current Android 8 or more memory. The same applies to the Archos models Access 45 and Access 55 or the TP link Neffos C5A and the larger Wiko model Jerry 2. Interesting is up to the price of 80 € maximum Wiko Lenny 4 Plus, the same price at least a 5 , 5-inch LCD with HD resolution and also an 8-megapixel camera brings, in contrast to the Moto E4 but no LTE dominates.

If it may cost a bit more, China smartphones can be an alternative. If you really want to save, order the devices directly from Chinese shippers. But the price for it is the renunciation of consumer rights: warranty? Refund policy? Forget it. From the technical data, models such as the Xiaomi Redmi 5a, Redmi Note 5a or the models we recently tested, Leagoo T5c (test report) or Neffos X1 Lite (test report), are quite convincing.

If you value a brand, you have to dig a little deeper. For a small extra charge, there are models such as the Gigaset GS170 (test report) or the Moto C Plus (review). Both models are not bad, but also not up-to-date in terms of software. Who wants a current Android 8, gets in the beginner segment currently the Nokia 1 or the Nokia 5; both are so new that we could not test them yet. The Nokia 1 is for less than 100 euros and has a smaller, lower-resolution display than the Moto E4. The Nokia 5 makes a lot better, costs about 150 euros but also almost twice as much. Worth mentioning are the LG K8 (review), the Honor 6A (review) and our secret favorite, the Moto G5 (review).
The Lenovo Moto G5 is currently synonymous with Android 7, but an upgrade to Android 8 is announced. There is also a full HD display and a much higher resolution of the camera. Gigaset GS170

Conclusion: Buy or not?
The price is really good. For 80 euros, there is no smartphone that the Roto E4 even rudimentary. Who still has use for the included SIM card, is still 10 euros cheaper away. If the price is really the main criterion for the purchase, it means: on to Aldi South and starting from the 15th of March in the morning.
On the other hand, we are having a hard time recommending smartphones that do not even have the latest software running at the time of purchase – because an official Android upgrade is unlikely. If you can afford it, you should flirt with the Moto G5. Although the product is noticeably more expensive, it is also much better in almost all respects. And for such a good smartphone still a bargain.
