Moto E3 mixes water resistance and Android Marshmallow with rock-bottom price


The dirt-cheap handset has a 5-inch display, quad-core processor and won't cut out when you spill beer on it.

Motorola Moto G (3rd Gen) Review: An Impressive Package For Under $200


We offered up our first impressions after only using it for a few days, but keep read the full Motorola Moto G (3rd gen) review to see if those impressions held up.

Price, battery life, design, water resistance.

No real complaints given the price, the camera could be a bit better in some conditions.

Motorola’s 3rd generation Moto G budget smartphone is a really good bang for your buck. Whether you’re looking for an affordable smartphone or a starter phone for your kids, you should definitely check out and consider the Moto G (3rd gen).

Weak performance ; 8GB isn't enough storage ; No NFC means no Android Pay

Motorola returns to the ultra-affordable smartphone market after an extended absence, but the Moto E3’s performance shortfall makes a strong case for spending a bit more.

Moto E3 mixes water resistance and Android Marshmallow with rock-bottom price


I recently called Motorola's new Moto G4 an "unbeatable Android bargain", and already Motorola is trying to outdo itself with an even cheaper phone -- the new Moto E3.

I bought this phone two weeks ago and although it is a nice looking phone and a nice size, the one-off switch has brkoen off already. Shocking!!!

slim design and very easy to use


Bought this for my husband who is not very clever with phones and he loves it, so happy to find one that he finds so easy to use, have tried others but they where too confusing for him.
