Display and Design
Moto E5 Plus has maintained the design of Moto G6 and Moto X4 with slight difference in the look. The device is having a 9.3 mm thickness along with 75.3 mm width. But the smartphone will have a bit heavy sketch of 196.6 grams. The rear side will have a glossy polymer design which will have the similar look of the glass back.

The 6 inch IPS LCD display will have a screen resolution of 720*1440 pixels. The 268 ppi Pixel Density looks an average feature for the price tag and even its competitor, Redmi Note5 Pro is featuring a 403 ppi pixel density. A 76.68% Screen to Body Ratio looks average and Moto still having the weakness in this criteria.
Storage and Performance
