Motorola Moto E
The Motorola Moto E is an entry level smartphone which comes with a 4.3 inch display and a 5 megapixel camera.
The Moto E is out now and can be bought for just £89 SIM free. A full specification for the Motorola Moto E is detailed below.
The Motorola Moto E is almost as low price and as low end as smartphones get these days, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. It’s made of plastic but it’s water resistant and feels well built, while the back cover is swappable so if it gets damaged or you just want a change of colour you can get a new one.
Its 4.3 inch screen has a resolution of 540 x 960, giving it a pixel density of 256 pixels per inch, which is good for the price, outclassing the Nokia Lumia 630 and the Vodafone Smart 4 Mini for example.
Its dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 processor and 1GB of RAM give it surprisingly snappy performance and its 1980 mAh battery ensures all day life.
The camera is less impressive, as its only 5 megapixels and there’s no flash, autofocus, or front-facing camera, but it will do in a pinch.
There’s also no 4G or NFC and storage is limited to just 4GB, but there’s also a microSD card slot, so you needn’t be quite that limited. While the Moto E is certainly a basic phone it’s also impressively well-specced for a sub-£100 offering.
Our Moto E Review review has been completed.
Our reviewer concluded "The best of the under £100 devices, the Moto E shows that smartphones can be cheap yet desirable".
The Motorola Moto E is out now and priced at just £89 SIM free. That puts it in direct competition with the Windows Phone powered Nokia Lumia 630, while it’s a little cheaper than the EE Kestrel and the Motorola Moto G.
Contract prices vary, but the Motorola Moto E is currently available from around £13 per month with no upfront cost.
In other words whether you buy it outright or get it on a contract the Moto E is very cheap indeed.
