Moto E

Motorola after making their entry into the Android Smartphones Market with their Moto G, has done a brilliant job.

And now, with their Moto E, they win the hearts of people who were not able to but an good android smartphone under £100.

As, Motorola Launched their latest Device i.e. MOTO E, it came on top on every tech search.

Here, we are reviewing this Smatphone with latest Android Kitkat (4.4.2). Moto E is available in India only on with a very reasonable price tag around £100. We managed to find a few great deals on Amazon. We even have access to this sneaky Amazon Discount Code to save you a bit of cash.

Anyway, here is the review of the Best Cheap Android Smartphone. As we are saying it Cheap & Best as well, it must have some awesome features. So, read our full review on this phone.

Build Quality & Design:

In terms of Design, Moto E is almost same as that of Moto G which is a hit in its segment. But when we hold each other, there is a difference. Moto E also has a strong build quality as that of Moto G. It has a rubberized back panel which provides a strong grip over the phone. Although its a little difficult to open that but its build quality is superb if we compare it to other phones in this segment. And having a 4.3 inch screen, it comes in your one hand very easily and you don’t have to use your both hands to operate this phone like you do in Samsung phones.In terms of design, We can’t expect better than this in a price range of £100.

The Battery of this phone is non-removable but you can remove & change the back cover as per your choice.On one side, there is two micro-sim card slots with a memory card card slot below them.


The 4.3 inch qHD display seems to be very good. It supports a resolution of 540×960 pixels with the pixel density of 256 ppi. It has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with nano coating. Apart from these amazing hardware, the display is quite good. The Screen has sharp colors and offers very good viewing angles which makes it better to play games and watch movies or videos for a long time.

Despite of its qHD resolution, it plays 1080 p videos very easily.

Also, the Loudspeaker is on the front side just below the screen and the speaker quality is very clean and crisp when we hear songs on play ringtones.


Now coming to the performance, Moto E has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 dual-core SoC onboard and the 1GB of RAM. Both these are making it a super smartphone which performs very well. There is no lagging in any operation we perform on this phone. The phone is very fast and while using it, you will not feel that you are using a cheap android handset. It gives a premium feel.We had played some games on it and they all performed very well as it also has the Adreno 302 GPU for graphics support.


The only feature which will be a little disappointing in Moto E is its camera. It has a 5 mega pixels Camera with fixed focus. There is no auto-focus feature and this will be missed very much. But the camera quality is not bad. It is quite good and the best thing is that it shows exactly same colors as what we captured. The 5 MP camera does the video recording at 480 p but its a very good quality.

Battery Life:

Moto E contains a non-removable 1980 mAH li-ion battery. The battery performance is amazing. After a lot of usage like using wifi, bluetooh, making calls, playing games and other functions, it gives a full day battery backup which is very good even it is superb.

After Reviewing Moto E, we came to a conclusion that it is the Best Budget & Best Cheapest Android Smartphone till now. If you are looking to buy your first android device then there is no doubt that it must be none other than Motorola Moto E.

It also promises to give the next upcoming Android Update. So that’s another cool feature comes along with this phone.

So we are giving it a Huge Thumbs Up and a Pick to the people who are looking for a compact and budget Smartphone.
