2014 was the year when we saw smartphone brands change market dynamics by introducing powerful phones with disruptive pricing and exclusive e-commerce deals. Even before Xiaomi, Lenovo, Huawei and OnePlus introduced their value-for-money devices, there was one company that started this trend - Motorola. With the introduction of the Moto E (Review | Pictures) last year, we had a smartphone in the sub-Rs, 10,000 range that was a decent performer and completely worth the money.
An upgrade to the wildly popular Moto E, Motorola adds a bigger screen, a more powerful battery and tweaks the design a bit with the Moto E (Gen 2). These changes seems to have worked in the favour of the phone and the Moto E (Gen 2) is definitely better than its predecessor in more ways than one. However, we weren't satisfied with the performance of both the cameras and wish Motorola had done better in that department.
