    I have a fond spot in my heart for the budget Moto phones, used a few over the years, I found the e4 to be almost the perfect budget phone, vanilla android helps the budget specs stay pretty smooth, I'm sure the e5 would serve many well. The TF version is a bit of a weird frankenstein phone as the camera is 8mp compared to 13mp on the "real" e5, but that version apparently never arrived in the US. I found the e4's front 5mp/rear 8mp fine though with a google photo's filter thrown on

    It would have been nicer if the e5 would have a USB-C connector but it has a usual Micro USB connector.

    Why would that be nicer?

    Most of us have lots of micro stuff and switching to C would be a significant investment. And for a household with multiple devices even more of a pain having to support multiple connectors.

    But never fear, it's been trickling down (Z in 2016, X4 in 2017) I expect the E6 will switch like the G6/6+ did in 2018 and the 2019 G7 Play.

    Yeah I have one phone that uses it but every other phone I have uses the micro USB.

    I have to keep track of the one and only charger for my Orbic Wonder so I don't lose it.
    I have dozens of micro USB chargers.

    I don't actually get what the big deal is anyway.

    After years and years of phones coming with annoying proprietary chargers that only fit the one phone that it came with they finally settled on the micro USB.

    Now another type charger is here and we have to deal with that problem.

    The same annoying crap with SIM cards.
    Standard size SIM then mini SIM and now nano SIM and eSim.

    1) there's no top or bottom. Works either way. No more struggling to get it flipped right in low light.

    2) higher current. Have you seen the USB 3 micro connector? USB C gives all that current in a much smaller connector.

    3) lots of other special modes, like analog audio and debugging.

    The same annoying crap with SIM cards.

    Assume you meant mini, micro, and nano
    Since the full size is like a credit card but few phones used it.

    But the smaller sizes make sense, just like SD cards.

    The eSIM is just a digital evolution and getting rid if the physical card.

    It's funny that both posts were made by the same person. Do you ever argue against yourself? who won?

    I did of course.

    I understand what C adds. I just don't have a need nor desire. I was asking jboard55 why *they* wanted C.

    I just replaced a LG Premiere with a Moto e5. I really like the phone, so far so good.

    The only phone or device with type c I have ever owned in my life is the v20 I got last year , everything else from phones to game console controllers to Bluetooth earbuds and speakers use micro usb, I never got the big hype over type c either, I never had trouble plugging in micro, if it was dark I'd either shine my phones screen to see or feel for the spikey teeth side which I knew would go on the bottom of the port. I nabbed a pack of well regarded micro usb to type c adapters off amazon awhile ago if ever needed, was actually way cheaper than buying actual type c cables

    Had this probem with a moto G. Downloaded Open Camera v1.45.2 and solved the lag problem. Has a bunch of settings that I'll prolly never use, but they're in there if you want them. Good uck.

    Haven't noticed it on my E4, XPE or X4. Not saying they have the world's greatest cameras, but not a lag problem.
