That Motorola phone looks really nice.


It would replace my elderly but still pristine looking Galaxy Note 2.

The GPS no longer works and the battery drains pretty quickly.


That Motorola has a HUGE battery - Shouldn't have to charge that too often.

The Nexus 5X appears in pristine condition, the screen works, the camera works, the wifi works, but it's housebound. A bit of a squeeze one day rendered it's mobile radio completely inoperable.

The sim card that resides within would dearly love to leave the house again one day, why not hitch a ride in an E5.

I will be replacing my Nexus 5x with it. The motherboard has already failed once, and I'm sure it's going to happen again. And the bluetooth is being wonky. I'm definitely due for a new phone! It's definitely showing it's age.

Good luck everyone! And Cheers for the giveaway!

Love my 5x, it's been a faithful companion but beginning to show the miles it has clocked up. The e5 looks like a sweet replacement, especially with that battery.

I would be replacing an iphone 6 plus with a dead battery. The battery was replaced once but wont hold a charge. It would be nice to have an Android phone again.

If I was the lucky recipient I would be replacing a Samsung S5, I would turn the S5 into a surveillance monitor using the Alfred App.

Replace my wifes Huawei Y2 3.... or is that Y3 2.....  either way, it drives her up the wall, which in turn drives me to hide in the garage and pretend Im doing home repairs. (in reality I'm using the home server to watch Stargate)


It always complains that its low on space even with a 32GB SD card in it - no apps will recognize the SD card except the camera. She cant even install her own company app without it complaining. Shes sworn at it, threatened it, given it to me to "fix" (fail), given it to kids who promptly hand it back asking for "daddys phone because it works". 


May give it to the dog to chew on and see if that improves anything.


Dont have a picture of the phone but heres one of the dog that will eat it.
