Review of Moto E

Earlier, Motorola launched their Moto G and Moto X smartphones in India, which have earned huge popularity and good sales in very less time. The 8GB variant of Moto G is selling at a price tag of Rs. 12, 499 and the Moto E is available at a comparatively low price tag. However, both these smartphones are a great performing package. But what is the reason behind the difference in the price tags of Moto E and Moto G, we have decided to find out.

Here, we bring you a one-on-one comparison test between Moto E and Moto G.

Moto E vs. Moto G


Moto E sports a 4.3-inch Capacitive Touch Screen display, which is capable of producing 16M colours at a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels at 256 ppi. While, Moto G sports a slight bigger 4.5-inch HD display touch screen, which produces a better resolution of 720×1280 pixels at a rate of 329 pixels per pinch. For display’s safety, both Moto E and Moto G feature Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

Processor & RAM

Moto E is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 Dual Core Processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and Adreno 302 GPU. Whereas, Moto G runs on a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Quad Core Processor supported with 1GB of RAM and Adreno 305 GPU. Multi-tasking and running huge applications & HD games is an easy task on both these smartphones.

It can be easily stated that the Moto G is powered by a comparatively better Quad Core Processor. However, at its offering price tag, Moto E packs a very powerful processor in the segment.

Operating System

Moto E runs on Google’s latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat Operating System, which would have a promised update in the future. The Moto G runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Operating System out of the box, which can be easily updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat Operating System. The latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS adds various new advance features on both these smartphones.


Both Moto E and Moto G house a 5 Megapixels rear camera for photography on the go. The Moto G also packs an LED flash and a 1.3 Megapixels secondary camera on its front, which are not present on the Moto E. Also, the rear camera on the Moto G can record 720p HD videos, while the Moto E can record videos in FVWGA resolution only.

This suggests that the Moto G is a better smartphone than Moto E for fulfilling photography needs on the move.


Moto E packs 4GB of onboard memory, which can be expanded up to 32GB using a MicroSD card. The Moto G is available in two variants sporting 8GB and 16GB of internal memory. However, the Moto G doesn’t support external MicroSD card, which is a kind of disappointment.


The connectivity features on both Moto E and Moto E are almost same including 3G, GPRS with EDGE, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, LE, WI-Fi, WI-Fi Hotspot, GPS with A-GPS support, GLONASS, MicroUSB 2.0 and 3.5mm Audio Jack.


Moto E is fuelled by a 1980mAH Li-ion battery. And the Moto G is fuelled by a slightly stronger 2070mAH battery, which promises long standby hours.

Our Word

In this comparison test, we found that Moto G packs a better display, processor and camera as compared to Moto E. The price tag difference of around Rs. 5,500 is the main and only reason behind this. The Moto E is a perfect choice for those people, who are planning to buy a powerful and reliable Android Smartphone at an attractive and easily affordable price tag. While, the Moto G is also a very good option for those people who can easily invest some extra money for their Android Smartphone.

Buying anyone out of these two Dual SIM Android Smartphones would be a good decision.
