  • Great value
  • Preloaded with KitKat


  • No LED Flash
  • Poor Camera
  • Low Display Resolution


Motorola’s latest release, the Moto E, is a real game changer in the low-cost smartphone market. Along with a great amount of specs for a low-cost smartphone it has been released running Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) making it all the more fascinating giving you your money’s worth.


The phone contains a 4.3 inch IPS LCD display with a mere resolution of 960×540 and a pixel density of 256ppi. However it does provide a good amount of clarity and is provided with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The display does not seem to match up in sunlight as it tends to wash out. Although the display is far from perfect it does seem to hold up well for basic everyday tasks.


The device features a 4 GB internal memory with a little above 2 GB usable internal memory. Though this would prove to be extremely less it does have an external SD card slot unlike it’s previous model, the Moto G, to expand the devices memory by another 32 GB.

Along with 1 GB RAM and a 1.2 GHz dual core processor  the phone can handle mid-range applications well while it does fairly decent with high end applications. The phone is powered by a Non-removable Li-Ion 1980 mAh battery which does give the user a considerable amount of battery life.

Although the phone’s camera is a big let down, it comes with a mere 5 MP and no flash, one could not have really expected much more from such a low-cost device. While incapable of capturing high quality pictures nor HD videos the phone is provided with a simple camera interface where a touch anywhere on the screen is sufficient to capture a picture.


In general this is the best you can expect from that tight budget. The Moto E may have very few competitors as it has an upper hand on the build quality of the processor compared to Micromax and other smartphones. This device is available only on in India and will cost you 6,999/- INR.
