Motorola Moto E Smartphone Review

 

Melting prices. It's summer time and Motorola is cutting prices. After the huge success of the Moto G - not only review-wise, but also customer-wise - the Moto E offers quite a lot for even less. But even though it manages to impress on a first glance...

Value, Build quality, Recent Android version, Battery life, Sufficient performance, Expandable storage, Battery life, build quality and display specs are close to that of the Moto G , remaining top-notch, especially given the targeted price segment

Camera module, Screen resolution, The rear camera is outright terrible. Modern smartphones are capable enough to replace cheap compact cameras - not so the Moto E

Motorola Moto E review: Have a break!

 

Motorola has done it again. The Moto G made quite the stir in the midrange and the story continues. The next one's up - and this time it's even cheaper. With a 4.3" display of qHD resolution, a dual-core processor, 5MP camera, and a solid 1,980mAh...

4.3" LCD, 540 x 960px, 256ppi; Gorilla Glass 3 with ambient light sensor ; Android OS v4.4.3 KitKat with a promise for timely updates ; Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset with dual-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 CPU; Adreno 302 GPU and 1GB RAM ; 5 MP fixed-focus...

Non user-removable battery ; Camera doesn't have auto focus and produces low-quality photos and videos ; No camera LED flash ; No front-facing camera ; Comes without a wall charger or a headset

Cheap Thrills

 

When I asked, the Motorola representative told me he didn't know what the E stands for. But I think I do. I'm pretty sure the E in Moto E stands for Everyone. Because in one way or another, that's who this phone is for. Everyone who needs a secondary...

ZOMG CHEAP! Water resistant and a damn near smash-proof body. This phone is harder to kill than Steven Seagal. Great, solid handfeel. Variety of color options

Selfie hater: Lousy back side camera, and no front side camera at all. 4GB of storage is not enough to even store all my apps

Moto E review: Where very good meets very cheap

 

After Motorola released the well-received Moto X into the world last year, most of us had just one question: What's Google's expensive mobile division

Runs an almost untouched version of Android 4.4.2 ; The vivid screen is a pleasant surprise ; Rounded design makes for comfy gripping ; Incredibly affordable

Only 4GB of internal storage ; Rear camera is mediocre at best ; No flash or front-facing camera

The Moto E has its shortcomings, but they're largely offset by the device's affordable price. While the more powerful Moto G is likely the better bet for most shoppers, those looking to ditch their feature phones without breaking the bank will find...

Moto E review: the people's smartphone

 

The first cellphone I ever owned was the cute and compact Nokia 6510. My heart was actually set on the more expensive and slider-protected 8850, but a teenager's budget could only stretch so far. The funny thing is that over the course of its lifetime,...

Extraordinarily cheap ; Runs the latest version of Android very well ; Uncomplicated and pleasing design

Woeful camera ; Display is merely adequate ; 4GB of storage isn't much

This is the smartphone that makes all others look stupidly expensive

Motorola Moto E ( black)

 

The Motorola Moto G was my favourite phone of 2013. Not because it had the best HD display or most powerful quad-core processor, but because it offered a well-rounded set of specs for a price that blew its competition clean out of the water. Now...

The Moto E is cheap, comes with the latest Android KitKat software and has a screen and processor capable of tackling the essentials.

Its camera and battery life don't impress and it isn't much less than the Moto G, which remains the best Android bargain around.

The Motorola Moto E is unquestionably cheap and has a set of specs that makes it more than capable of handling your basic everyday tasks. Its price, however, isn't much lower than the Moto G, which has a better camera, more powerful processor, improved...

Motorola Moto E

 

Motorola's $129 Moto E is a durable and customizable Android phone at a fraction of the cost of leading handsets, but it's missing some features.

Very affordable; Nearly perfect color reproduction; Customizable rear Shell

No LTE support; Below-average battery life; Lacks front camera and camera flash

Motorola Moto E review

 

The Moto G is the best-selling smartphone in Motorola's history. It outsold every Droid and new Razr the company released, and that's because it hit a new sweet spot. At only $180, it's insanely cheap for a smartphone, but packs almost all the goodies...

It costs $130 ; Comes with Android 4.4 KitKat ; Comfortable to hold ; Great battery life ; Decent-sounding speakers ; Moto Alert is useful ; MicroSD slot included for expanded storage

No 4G LTE ; 4GB of internal storage is not enough ; Crappy rear cam, no front cam ; Screen has poor viewing angles ; Battery cover rattles ; No NFC

Moto E is $130, and for that price you get a phone that works. But it won’t be a phone that you love. Buy a $180 Moto G instead.

Motorola Moto E Review

 

Motorola's strategy has been a peculiar one lately to say the least. In the high-end segment, its Moto X Android smartphone proved to the masses that great phones don't need beefy specs to stand a chance in being successful. Meanwhile, on the other end...

Hard-to-beat $130 pricing for this unlocked model

Photo and video quality are sub-par

It’s not perfect, but it doesn’t have to be – mainly because the Moto E is most impressive for its rich value. Value, it’s something that’s prized to the folks who don’t want to shell out a ton of money to experience the advantages of a smartphone....

Motorola Moto E

 

The Moto E is the latest entry-level device from Motorola. While it's 4.3-inch display, dual-core 1.2-GHz processor and 1GB of RAM are far from top-of-the-line, Motorola's aggressively cheap pricing could change what an entry-level smartphone is...

Silky smooth interface, Lightweight design, Excellent build quality, Clear, bright display

No LTE support, Low storage capacity, No front facing camera, “Terrible” rear facing camera
