Motorola Moto E – A Global Blockbuster of a Phone – Plus Full Specs and Video

Moto e

Motorola just took the wraps off the Moto E. Its focus is the price point. It is already on sale in the UK on Pay as You Go for £79.99 via a number of places. For the geeks among us, the Moto E won’t even be on our radar. But for many this is an absolute cracker of a phone.

It is optimised to open web pages faster than the Samsung Galaxy S4. It has a micro sd card slot for media. It does not have the best of anything but it is a masterful low cost budget phone. Motorola will also offer a range of coloured back shells to help personalise the phone too. Also of note is the large battery that will give it 24 hours usage. Plus it is splashproof.

All in all an impressive budget phone which will do well in emerging markets and cash strapped people.
