All-day battery
Keeping your phone charged can be a pain when you’ve got a busy day. Never worry about recharging your phone again when you’re out and about with an all-day 2800 mAh battery.² The battery is also removable, so if you’re a power user, you can easily swap out batteries as needed.

 

You’ll also find your SD and SIM card slots inside the back cover of the phone.

 

 

Fast performance + Android™ 7.1

Quad-core processor
With a quad-core processor, you’re able to play games, swipe through apps, and scroll through websites, without any lag. The E4 comes preinstalled with Android™ 7.1 (Nougat), which has updated features like new emojis. Learn more about the updates for Nougat.

4G speed
And, like all of the phones available at Republic, the Moto E4 can access fast, nationwide 4G LTE so that you can stay connected no matter where you are.

Matched with one of our budget friendly plans, you can’t beat the savings you’ll find with the Moto E4 from Republic.

    Too bad you left all the grand fathered customers behind and unable to upgrade to newer phones unless they are willing to lose their 1.0 plans! 🙁

    • https://republicwireless.com/ Shannon O

      Hi Toti, it was hard for me to switch from the 1.0 plans too. I thought I would run out of data but ended up switching to the 1 GB $20 3.0 plan and I’m really enjoying my new phone. And I haven’t run out of data yet (knock on wood). It’s not as scary as it seems!

      • freakqnc

        Hi Shannon, it’s wouldn’t be hard for me since albeit I have a 5GB allowance at 3G speeds I rarely use much data and when I do spike in the once-in-a-blue moon it’s well below 1GB… I might go over only if absolutely necessary but data consumption isn’t a concern of mine over 90% of the cases since I average 500MB/mo

        That said switching would still require to retire my $399 motoX 1st gen. which continue to work splendidly after I placed in a new battery and replaced a new camera (as the original one failed for some unknown reasons) and gave it a brand new back cover.

        In addition to needing to get a brand new phone as I wouldn’t be able to re-use the perfectly working one I own (creating more e-waste in the process), the coverage this phone provides as been the most reliable I’ve experienced and wouldn’t want to move to services provided by carriers which have been proven problematic where I live.

        The new plans work much like Google Project fi, and I know you can’t officially disclose the carriers serving an area or another due to RW’s agreements, but unless RW has some private carrier nobody knows about, we can all guess which ones they’d be.

        The reason I mentioned that, is because it makes me unconfident that 3.0 plans would work well in my area (NYC). While all major carriers state we are fully covered by 4G and LTE, when I tested by switching to Project fi, the Nexus 5P they sent me would not work consistently. It would drop the few calls ones placed while using cell line (tested with wifi off) and call quality wasn’t very clear.

        Now, granted that those issues might have been due to a defective phone, but I really didn’t like the fact that it was unreliable when connecting on wifi as the phone automatically switched to cell data wasting allotted amounts without asking for permission to do so.

        All in all a miserable experience with the phone and service so much so that less than a week into it I canceled service, sent back the device and requested a refund.

        I wouldn’t want to repeat the experience for obvious reason and also because I am not sure if that switch would count towards the single one that RW allows to 1.0 subscribers, which would mean that should 3.0 plans not work for me (much like Goggle project fi didn’t), then I would not be able to return to my current plan should I need to do so.

        So as you can read, I have more than one reason preventing me to switch at this time the last of which is being afraid of running out of cell data.

        My comment referred more to leaving us grandfathered users in the forgotten bucket for years as not a single new phone upgrade (paid of course) has been added to RW which could work for 1.0 plans subscribers… you know, those who believed in RW before it became popular and went through the growing pains with the company. I know that priority is looking forward and make better things… but let granpas to rot just because there are a bunch new 3rd gen children playing with you isn’t a terribly nice thing to do 😉

        All grandpas want is a phone with 1) micro SD Storage supporting at least 128GB, 2) at least 64GB RAM, 3) a processor fast enough to handle the latest Android 4) a good camera to take pictures also in low light, 5) preferably with a replaceable or at the very least serviceable battery.

        Some suggestions:

        (Even the lesser known brand names can be attractive as long as we get an option! ;))

        Thanks 🙂

      I really appreciate the budget-friendly smart phones although I don’t want to give up my Republic Refund plan… $13-$15/mo, love my cell phone bill! Even TING can’t beat that! Not that $20 isn’t fabulous. I still have low data using friends who pay >$100/mo for their cell phone bills!

      • freakqnc

        There is no beating Republic Wireless. Even on 1.0 plans at 3G speed it’s still great although more expensive than 2.0 plans with refund an also more expensive than 3.0 plans 1GB without refund. As I explained in the earlier post in reply to Shannon (which I added since for some reason had disappeared from the thread), I am not “afraid” of running out of data (since 1.0 came with an awesomely generous 5GB/mo, albeit at 3G speed only), but my MotoX is a CDMA which is likely on Verizon or Sprint. Calls have been always clear all around NYC (only when other called my phone from their T-Mo/ATT or other carriers have experienced bad call quality (because was on their end). “Upgrading” to 3.0 plans would mean I’d be in the same boat as those peeps who are on those overcrowded and barely sufficient networks. I don’t make or receive a ton of calls, but when I do I want to hear the other party clearly and not having to tell them that they are breaking up every 10 or 30 seconds. My experience with Google fi was horrendous, so I am now even more weary about getting service through anything other than whatever carrier is being used for 1.0 plans in NYC. Because of that I have repaired my MotoX multiple times in order to be able to continue using it on the reliable (albeit more expensive) 1.0 plan… it’d be nice to be able to get some new phone with microSD and higher specs to go for another 4+ years.

    guess who just became a new customer

  • Ronald W. Mann

    The instructions for installing the sim card are so small I cannot read them. I have not installed a sim before can someone help

    • Dean-R

      Just did this for 2 new E4’s 1 day ago. Its yours whether your are careful or not so much. 1.Open cover from bottom-right-corner(if glass face toward you).Use thumb nail patiently! remove battery if installed. 2.Notice empty slot above white printed “SIM”. This is left-below camera lens plateau. 3.Find SIM card in packaging. It is a green credit card sized with a white pop-out card SIM chip. Pop the white part out. 4.This got me once. The white card looks solid but really has two smaller pop-out sizes with a metallic chip in the middle.Use the smallest part by holding the edges with finger+ thumb hand 1 then hand 2 index finger press center. Repeat until almost no white edges remain. 5.Now with metallic chip down and notched corner upper-left, slide SIM chip into the SIM slot you found in step “2”. 6. Insert your battery with metal tabs to the top and Motorola label towards you. 7. Replace clover on the body and press somewhat firmly until it clicks in place. 8. Press the power button on mid-left side if glass is towards you. … Be patient with peace or else with pieces. 🙂
