Moto E review (2015): The best budget phone gets even better

 

Motorola's new Moto E is a solid improvement over its predecessor, with plenty of features for a low price. But it's also easy to see where Motorola had to sacrifice quality to make it inexpensive.

Inexpensive ; Elegant and comfortable design ; Great battery life

Generally slow performance, despite good hardware ; Mediocre camera ; Display is difficult to read outdoors

If your main concern when choosing a smartphone is price, and you don't want to be locked into a lengthy carrier contract, the Moto E is a good choice. Motorola's done a fine job of bringing its curvy design and technology down to a low price point...

Motorola Moto E (2015, Boost Mobile)

 

The Motorola Moto E combines high-quality parts with clean Android software to great effect. It earns an Editors' Choice for budget-friendly smartphones on Boost Mobile.

Affordable. 4G LTE connectivity. Near-stock Android 5.0.

Subpar camera quality.

Software and Conclusions Motorola is building a great reputation for clean Android software and timely updates. The Moto E runs an essentially stock version of Android 5.0, which is incredibly rare in the low-end market. Boost, unfortunately, loads up...

Motorola Moto E ( 2015, white)

 

The latest Motorola Moto E doesn't hold a candle to a top-of-the-line superphone. Its chunky plastic shell won't turn heads, and the spec sheet doesn't do much to incite gadget lust. But that's OK if you're looking to save a few bucks; what the Moto E...

The new Motorola Moto E is proof that a cheap phone can be good, too; you're getting reasonable performance, a sharp display and LTE connectivity for $150, unlocked.

Like its predecessor, camera quality disappoints. The processor also occasionally struggles to keep up with more hardware-intensive tasks, like gaming.

The Moto E delivers in enough of the right areas to make it a fantastic option for a tight budget.

Moto E (2015) review: An adorable low-end phone with an absolutely abysmal camera

 

Everything about the Moto E makes is the perfect first smartphone or backup device—except for it's seriously awful rear-facing camera.

Long lasting battery life will get you through a day of adventures ; Low-end phone without the low-end performance

Both rear- and front-facing cameras are just awful ; You will have to buy a MicroSD card to store a decent amount of media on this device

The Moto E will make a great first smartphone or backup device, but the cheapness comes at a price: its camera performance is just so awful.

Motorola Moto E (2015) review

 

Crunch. That's the sound of glass doing a belly-flop on concrete. A couple of months ago, I heard it for the first time. After a long night of Dungeons & Dragons and bar-hopping, I got to my front...

Still an insane bargain ; Pleasing to look at and hold ; Runs Android competently

Camera is pure garbage ; Display still below average

Motorola Moto E (2015, Unlocked)

 

With the addition of LTE and a processor upgrade,Motorola's latest Moto E narrows the gap between entry-level and high-end smartphones.

Low price. Responsive, near-stock Android. Fast 4G LTE. Memory card slot. Good battery life.

Low-resolution display. Poor camera.

Camera and Conclusion The Moto E's 5-megapixel rear-facing camera lacks a flash. And unfortunately, picture quality hasn't improved since the first-generation phone. Outdoor shots showed slightly washed out colors in my tests, while soft details lacked...

Motorola Moto E review

 

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...

The Moto E (2015) Review

 

During the past couple of years we've seen a dramatic shift in Motorola's strategy for competing in the smartphone market. As one of the earliest producers of Android devices, the company needed to let go of ideas and strategies from years that had...

Looking toward the future, there are a few things Motorola should strive for if they are possible at the Moto E's price target. I would really love to see the next version move to a 1280x720 display, although since that is a point of differentiation...

Motorola Moto E 2015 Smartphone Review

 

Successful update... ...would be a brief and catchy description of Motorola's Moto E 2nd generation because many points of criticism made on the predecessor have been reworked. A 4.5-inch qHD screen, LTE, 8 GB of storage, and the latest Android 5.0...

Price/performance ratio, Build, Latest Android version, Battery life, Sufficient performance, Expandable storage, LTE

Camera modules, Resolution, Brightness, Non-removable battery, No power supply included, No NFC

Motorola's Moto E 2015 has definitely earned our recommendation. The refresh simply provides a lot for a price of 129 Euros (RRP, ~$137). But first things first.

Moto E 2015 (2nd Gen) Review

 

Motorola's 2nd gen Moto E comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 4.5-inch display, and is perfectly legit for the price it's being offered at. Is it the finest piece of hardware on the market today? Of course not. Is it meant to be? No way. Does the 2015...

This is a smartphone worth owning. Look into purchasing smartphones on the used phone circuit first – just so long as you can trust the previous owner – then if you’re unable to locate a fine phone released in the past few years, this machine will be...
