Just like LG, Motorola jumps the gun and announces a new phone a few days before the Mobile World Conference (MWC).
The second generation Motorola Moto E has a 4.5-inch qHD display with 245ppi IPS resolution protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It has a 1.2GHz 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and a 400MHz Adreno 360 GPU supported by 1GB of RAM and comes with an expandable 8GB of storage, which is enough to keep Android 5.0 Lollipop running smoothly.
As this is more or less a budget phone, the Moto E only features a 5MP rear camera with autofocus and a VGA front camera. However, it does have a pretty cool “twist wrist” function where you only need to twist your wrist twice to activate your phone’s rear camera, and twice more to flip to the one in front. And if you’ve got a thing for high internet speeds, the Moto E has 4G-LTE capabilities, so in the end it’s pretty much a good deal.
For those who still want it cheaper, the Moto E also has a 3G version, which runs on 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 32-bit processor and an 400MHz Adreno 302 GPU.
With a 2390mAh battery and cosmetic features such as interchangeable bands and grip shells, the Moto E will sure click with those wanting a reasonably priced phone from a tried-and-tested brand. And why not? The 4G-LTE version of the Moto E only costs $149.99 (approximately Php6,450), while the 3G version is at $119.99 (approximately Php5,160).
