The Motorola Moto E is the baby of the latest Motorola smartphone series the world currently loves a great deal. If you cannot afford the most expensive Moto X, and the Moto G is out of the question, you’ll want to look toward the Moto E. That’s not just if you wish to stay within the boundaries of the Motorola brand either, since the Moto E variant is tough to beat for the price no matter the OEM.
The Motorola Moto E packs 4.3-inch display with 540 x 960 screen resolution and a 256 ppi pixel density. Users get Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box. Additionally, it comes with Android 4.4.3 KitKat and Android 4.4.4 KitKat software updates.
While you cannot expect great specs from such a cheap smartphone, the system chip was still underwhelming, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 8210. Additionally, it comes with a Dual core, 1200 MHz, ARM Cortex-A7 processor.
Those looking for some better news would be pleased to know it does come with expandable storage – -a feature that’soften left out of the cheaper handsets. That means you can buy a Micro SD card and use it for extra storage,so you aren’t reduced to only the built-in storage space. For what it’s worth, the built-in storage space is 4GB.
The bottom line: those looking for the cheapest smartphone possible that offers as much bung for their buck will find it hard looking past the Motorola Moto E. It comes with fast 4G mobile data support and is splash-proof. As for the downside, you are getting a low-pixel density screen, low RAM memory, a lackluster camera and no FaceTime camera.
