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: Raising the bar for entry-level Androids


It's easy to see why the Motorola Moto E is creating such a frenzy in the smartphone world. Finally, a tier-I brand has managed to offer uncompromised specifications that don't ruin the Android experience. Moreover, you also get the latest version of...

At a crazy price of under Rs 7,000, you can see why the Moto E has been a mega hit. Apart from being a handset from a reputed OEM, with extensive after sales support, you don’t feel short-changed when it comes to the features and performance. If you’re...

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

Motorola Moto E Review: Flawed Affordability


A smartphone for the cost-conscious. Going SIM-free and eschewing carrier subsidies has been slow to catch on in the US, but with T-Mobile USA's “Uncarrier” movement gaining pace, perhaps the time is right for handsets that bear their true sticker...

Competing on price is a tough business. The race to the bottom end has seen firms like Huawei and ZTE flourish, though perhaps not in the US where Motorola at least has brand advantage. The $129 Moto E is ambitious in a similar way to the Moto G,...

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 do

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 (Unlocked)


Motorola puts feature phones on notice with the affordable, unlocked Moto E, making a modern Android smartphone experience more accessible than ever.

Great build quality and display for the price. Clean, up-to-date version of Android. Memory card slot

No LTE. Poor camera. Can be sluggish at times. Low internal storage

Motorola wants to usher in a new era in the mobile world—one marked by affordability without compromise. At Mobile World Congress, now-COO Rick Osterloh predicted the end of the $650 smartphone, and recent phones like the OnePlus One are proving that...

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.
