Motorola has thrown another smartphone on the market. It is called Moto E and so far manages to make a great impression. This new smartphone packs 4G LTE and costs 150 dollars. So far, Moto E can be found on Motorola’s website. At this price it can be a perfect choice for those who will not want to overpass their budget or it can be a solid choice for first-time smartphone shoppers. US shoppers can also opt for something even cheaper, because Motorola is making a 3G-only version for Moto E, which costs only 119 dollars.
Moto E is an improvement from the last year model, which had disappointed with its battery stakes. This new model comes with 4.5-inch display and a 2,390mAh battery. The biggest plus is its 4G LTE for faster downloads and web browsing. Another great thing is that Moto E comes with Android Lollipop version 5.0.2, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.
Compared with palm-stretching dimensions of the Galaxy Note or iPhone 6 Plus, Moto E will look very small in the user’s hand. However, it has a thick bezel surrounding the display and it’s quite chunky to gold. Its 4.5-inch screen has a resolution of 960×540 pixels, meaning that it isn’t as high as the full HD display, which other phones are featuring. That being said, the display seems colorful and bright, and the icons on the screen look quite crisp. On the back of the phone it is located a 5-megapixel camera, while in the front is a front-facing camera for video chat or selfies.
Luckily, Motorola hasn’t interfered with the vanilla Android experience, so this means that the Lollipop interface feels uncluttered, clear and calm. Users will have access to Google Play, where they can choose tons of apps, as well as music and movies.
Moto E is on already on sale and it will be available in over 50 countries in North America, Latin America, Asia and Europe. In the present, it’s not clear if Motorola plans to release the new phone in Australia too. There will be plenty more phones over the next few days, as Mobile World Congress in Barcelona starts.
