Motorola has been bullish so far this year with its pricing and strategy for India. After a long absence, it came back with the Moto G and Moto X, and now continues with the Moto E, making other manufacturers sit up and take notice.

Motorola Moto E Summary

Despite its bargain basement pricing, the Motorola Moto E performs without breaking a sweat. The 5-megapixel fixed focus camera is a huge letdown, though. Also, prospective buyers who like big screens might not be comfortable using a phone with a 4.3-inch screen.

  • excellent features! Rest all your doubts and myths about this 'cheap phone
    abhijeet gayakwad (May 31, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Ever since Moto G hit the market, I was almost convinced to buy it, and then on Wednesday, 14 May I saw the full paper ad in TOI which read: Rs.6999 Moto E! I logged in instantly and ordered this phone, even though there was very little user knowledge on it (since it was launched that very day!) This phone was delivered to me yesterday (in flat 2 days, way before the stipulated time) And yes it feels good that its out of stock :D Coming back to the main point (reviewing the product, guess the avid blogger spirit and me cant refrain itself from setting up a good background to a story...) A) The phone is way beyond what you see in the videos and promos online, it blows you away with the graphic display, excellent touch interface and is way better than any Samsung or LG phone B) You will have to pinch yourself to believe, it cost you just Rs.7000! C) For those who like to click away from your phone, Caution: This phone does not have a front camera or a back flashlight and does not auto focus. But for others like me, who hardly bother and the love of photography is practiced by using 'cameras', this will hardly make any difference in your MotoE experience! D) The body of the phone is sturdy (not cheap looking at all!) I bought a white one and am looking forward to booking a nice MotoE cover when it will be launched next week. E) It has all the features of any Android phone. Caution: The processor is dual core processor and just to bust the myth: this does not slow down the phone system in any way F) I am not a hard core heavy gamer (certainly not on my phone!) so I am not sure how this processor will react to heavy games (please refer to reviews given by any gamers in this respect) In short, for a person like me who wants to use a phone like a phone plus at the same time wants ALL Android features, Buy this phone, it wont disappoint. The biggest achievement is it beats all those mediocre phones in 12-15k range!! We were being fooled by these phone companies till now, MotoE is loyal to its customers and gives respect to them by giving superior features in this affordable price range! Come to think of it, If I could live with my stupid LG (12k) phone and dad's Samsung Ace plus (15k) for two years, I will be more than happy if this 7k lasts for the same time! So dont think on it, go for it. Save the money for better and meaningful things in life (like your education or any other essential electronic!) Move away from the consumerist/materialistic picture Samsung and Iphones paint which makes u to believe you can have the best only by spending 35k or 40k!!! Amen! P.S. This is revolution! Getting all these features and 1GB RAM at Rs.7000 proves that good technology can be affordable and can have mass appeal!

    Midhun Kumar (May 14, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Pros: 1. Corning gorilla 3 protection which is scratch proof 2. p2i nanocoating makes it water splash proof (may or may not be water proof) 3. 1.2 ghz snapdragon 200 processer which is almost similar to MOTO G's snapdragon 400 processor (do remember that moto g costs twice as much) 4. latest pure android 4.4 with a guarnteed upgrade to next android. 5. display is awesome (256 ppi) resolution : 960 x 540 Pixels 6. dual sim, dual standby (with a sensor which selects the perfect sim for u based upon your uses) 7. 24 hours battery life 8. 1 gb ram 9. 400 mhz adreno graphics 10. curved body with a 4.3 screen which fits easily in ur hand 11. 5mp camra, camera also has moto g's features (Auto Focus, Slow Motion Video, Burst Mode, Auto HDR, Panorama, Tap to Focus) 12. FVWGA (854x480) videos recording 13. Expandable memory upto 32 GB (MOTO G lacks this feature) 14.GPS, GLONASS (russian navigation tech.) ,BeiDou(chinese navigation tech.) with Google Maps 15 Connectivity : 2g, 3g(21.1 Mbps HSDPA; 5.76 Mbps HSUPA),wifi, USB 2.0, Bluetooth v4.0, 16. multimedia : FM, Music Player, 720p HD video player `17. Sensors : Proximity (detects your face during a call to disable the screen so that you wouldn't accidentally press buttons during a call), accelerometer (tilts the screen when u tilt the phone), Ambient Light Sensor (adjusts the brightness automatically) cons: 1. No LED flash 2. No front camera 3. No Wi-fi Hotspot 4. Wi-Fi Direct (Collapse)

  • Premium features at budget price
    ujjal bhattacharya (Jun 1, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Bought the phone because of its impressive specifications and price.The display of the phone although not HD is good and i can surely say it is the best in this price range.Audio sounds good in a decent headphone.I installed UC browser, temple run, dead trigger, mailbox, Norton antivirus, whatsapp, mx player.All of these apps and games ran flawlessly.Multitasking was a great experience as Android Kitkat is buttery smooth as well as due to the capable hardware inside.The camera is the only thing i disliked about this phone as it produces below average pictures even in daylight.The screen thanks to Gorilla Glass Protection did not get any scratches even though i kept the car keys and phone on same pocket.The battery was fairly good as backup lasted a day as i kept my 3G on as well as apps like mailbox,Facebook,whatsapp were running in the background,couple of hours of listening to music,some medium amount of phone calls.Call quality is really good and i have not got any distortion till now.Sharing of my 3G data through USB tethering or Wi-Fi hotspot works well without any issues. I will recommend this phone to those people who want a quality phone at a budget with no compromise on performance.I will rate it 5 stars as it is filled with great features and meets almost everyone's budget.

  • The Moto legacy continues...
    aayush agarwal (Jun 1, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Just like its predecessors Moto G and Moto x... Moto E is here to rule the market. With the specs offered, its surely gonna eat up the under 10k market for other players such as Samsung and Nokia. The best one to try for someone turning to smartphones. The price doesn't even pinch a bit. Cudos Motorola...:)

  • Pretty Awesome
    Aayush Agarwal (May 31, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Everything that you would require out of a smartphone. Biggest hurt is the Lack of Auto focus and Front Camera for those who use it. Except that its amazing!

  • Cheap Price Tag but Premium features from an Entry-Level Smartphone
    Moses Praful (May 31, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    This is the best budget smartphone in the market right now.For the price you pay you're getting more than expected features in this little wonder. The hardware specification are much better than the best selling Samsung flagship i.e Galaxy S2. Performance of the phone is just amazing,it performs better than the last year flagship Samsung Galaxy S4 in certain tasks like opening apps,web browsing,camera performance etc..(If you wont believe me then check out 'Moto E' Wikipedia page) The stock android UI is so smooth and never experience a lag whatsoever. Surprisingly this phone handled many of the graphic intense games very well which was amazing whereas other phones of same category wouldn't even support them. Corning Gorilla Glass 3! Many mid-range phones that cost 15-20k doesn't have a gorilla glass but Motorola has provided it in an entry-level smartphone. Display is also good and bright and I haven't face any issues like poor viewing angles as many people are complaining. Image quality from the 5MP cam is decent.It took great shots in good lightning though autofocus is absent. Inbuilt memory is 4GB out of which 2GB is user available but Moto E supports microSD upto 32GB even Moto X,Moto G doesn't have this feature. Battery backup is great and build quality is excellent and looks durable. What more can you expect in a 7K smartphone,This is bang for the buck 100% Satisfied.

  • No LED flash, secondary camera.
    Abhijit jadhav (May 14, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Motorola Moto E main disadvantage is No Secondary Camera, No LED flash, no WiFi hotspot. This three things are more important in a smart mobile. ?????????
