Motorola Moto E (2015) is One of the Best Budget LTE Phones Yet

The second version of the Moto E smartphone is finally official and some big changes are in tow. The 2015 version of Motorola’s quality cheap phone brings LTE, a larger display, HD camera and a 64-bit chipset.

We will be quick to point out that the LTE version of the phone is the more potent of the two and will be the center attention. The Moto E (2015) comes with a larger 4.5″ display, although still with qHD resolution and Gorilla Glass 3.

Under the hood, you get a quad-core 1.2Ghz 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal expandable storage. The camera has been improved and now records 720p videos at 30fps, along with HDR. The front now boasts a VGA shooter too.

Connectivity options of the phone include Bluetooth 4.0 LE. The phone, which will be offered in either Black or White along with a choice of six additional back-plates and Grip Shell cases follows the usual Motorola design language. Why fix something which isn’t broken.

The phone will be available from today for a price of $119 for the 3G version with Snapdragon 200 chip, Cortex-A53 CPU and Adreno 306 GPU. The advanced and substantially more future-proof LTE version will be available for $149.

If you have your heart set on this one, the 4G Moto E is the way to go. With timely updates, an attractive design and a fairly impressive hardware for its price, Motorola may have just announced the LTE phone for the masses.

      • Abdul Rehman

        I don’t think so…because I saw its specs on some other sites and there is no 1800 mhz lte band support in this phone…And in Pakistan,only 1800 mhz band devices are supported by 4G

  • Nab

    Can I use 3G in all 4G sets?

    • Indeed-!

    • Mazhar

      Yes you can except if you are on Warid. On Warid you are either 2G or LTE, nothing in-between.

    In fact, this phone is one of the best low-range phone in the market featuring Lollipop out of the box but there is a slight disadvantage of not having a Flash. I was convinced by the hardware as well as the latest OS but still Flash matters a lot to me.. Sorry Moto E..

    • suchal

      All new android versions do not support flash. Neither does any iPhone or iPad.
      Flash is a thing of past, brother. If you are looking for mobile phone with flash support then I am sorry, there are no new mobiles with flash support.
