Motorola Moto E (2015) review

 

The new Moto E packs LTE and a few sweet upgrades

Solid design ; Great low price ; 4G connectivity

Some display issues ; Not enough storage ; Poor front camera

Motorola has updated one of the best budget handsets of last year with some key features including an overdue selfie snapper and 4G connectivity.

Motorola Moto E 2nd Gen review

 

The camera isn't great, but the new Moto E is still great value, with a bigger, better screen, faster internals and a longer-lasting battery

The Motorola Moto E (2015) is a fantastic budget smartphone. It may not have the best camera in the world and the Moto apps could be easier to set up, but with 4G support, a fantastic battery life and Android 5.0, it's a great value handset that's an...

Motorola Moto E 2 (2015)

 

The Moto E (2015) is an updated version of Motorola's popular budget smartphone that has some noteworthy improvements. One is a new design, another is a larger screen, but the best is that it now includes 4G LTE for faster internet and video streaming...

Superb battery life ; Fun, customisable design ; Good build quality ; Bloatware-free and fast

Motorola Moto E 4G review

 

The new Moto E 4G is a worthy upgrade over the original Moto E, with upgrades in every area. For an extra £20 it adds 4G LTE connectivity and a front-facing camera, plus performance and storage improvements. It might not be as fast as the grey-market...

Motorola Moto E review (2014) - Successor launched

 

The Moto E's camera could be better, but this £90 phone has great performance and superb battery life

However with the new 2015 version now being announced, there's more Motorola's around this price than you can shake a stick at. The new Moto E looks to be a much better buy for £20 more, full review coming soon, and should neatly plug the gap between...

Motorola Moto E 4G (2015) Review: In Depth

 

Packing Android Lollipop and 4G, the brand new Moto E is seriously great value at a shade over £100. Is it as good as last year's model?

Affordable ; 4G ; Decent budget screen ; Lollipop

Very basic camera

At £109, the Motorola Moto E offers impressive value for money and shaves a whole £50 off the price of the freshly-launched Moto G 4G. There are some sacrifices, of course: you don't get the same sharp HD panel of the Moto G 4G and the camera is a...

Moto E 2nd Generation with Android 5

 

While I am very happy with my Moto G the Moto E is a cheaper phone and it now comes with, or is upgrades to Android V5 so is this upgrade and other improvements such as 4G and the larger 2390mAh battery worth doing?

It is 13x6.5x1cm and weights 144grams, the screen is 5.5x10cm these figure gives the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 4.5inches. Front VGA camera for those all-important Selfies and for things like Skype. Switch on is 34seconds while shutdown...

Motorola Moto E (2015) review - the ultimate budget mobile phone?

 

Motorola polishes an already impressive package to serve up one of the best budget smartphones yet

If you’re looking for a cheap knockabout phone that doesn’t compromise heavily on features, the Moto E 2nd Gen is a cracking choice. It’s good-looking, compact and well built, and the improved performance and good-quality screen seal the deal. Motorola...
