Review of Moto E


The price of Moto E in India is Rs. 6,999. A complete Smartphone at less than Rs. 7,000 is certainly worth taking a note of. It’s not only for the lesser price tag, but also for the features it possesses. Motorola wants to prove a point that the phone isn’t only a budget phone, but also comes with a point to score over the oppositions.


The design of the Moto E is similar to its predecessors – the Moto X and Moto G. So, you will not find much difference in design. However, if observed carefully, only then can you find some subtle differences. The difference is visible in the curved back a bit.

The Display

The screen is a 4.3-inch display is guarded by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. This is the first of its kind for a phone that falls in this price range. The screen comes with a qHD resolution of 960 X 540.Review of Moto E

The Feel

At a thickness of 12.3mm and 142g of weight, the Smartphone is pretty easy to handle. The heft reassures you the feel if the size of the phone is taken into account. One of the USP of the review of Moto E is, as you hold the phone you get a feel that the phone is a pretty sturdy and rugged device.

Volume controls

The volume controls are to the right edge of the device along with the power button. And yes, there’s nothing to the left edge, it’s entirely blank. The LED charging indicator sits at the top of the screen. There is also a single speaker to the front embraced by a metallic strip.

Features and specifications

A 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 dual-core processor powers the device, which also comes with integrated Adreno 302 graphics processor. 1GB RAM looks good enough to give smoother processing experience without a hiccup.

According to the review of Moto E, the internal storage is 4GB, however, only 2.2GB is available to the user. One surprising thing must be mentioned that this memory is recognized as an external one and the apps are installed here.

However, there is space more for 32GB of memory expansion with microSD card. Apart from this, it offers support to a couple of micro-SIM cards as well as dual standby mode. And the best part is, it can connect to 3G networks.


The phone comes with a 5MP primary camera without flash or auto-focus. And there isn’t any secondary camera as well. This can be understandable for a budget Smartphone.

The Verdict

The Moto E is certainly a device that will do justice to the price tag that is carries. On the camera front, the phone does disappoint a bit. However, it must be said that Motorola does provide the best of the phones in the budget segment, and so is the Moto E.
