At first glance, the Moto E looks like a rather unremarkable phone. Burdened by a low-end spec sheet and a tiny 4.3 inch display, the Moto E seems to have everything stacked against it. But after holding the Moto E in the hand and firing it up, you’ll find that there’ more than meets the eye when it comes to Motorola’s little device. Motorola hasn’t just delivered a budget Android device, the company has re-invented the budget Android smartphone, and they’ve done it just in time. Motorola’s putting all of its eggs in the emerging markets basket, which is already bringing the company some success. Motorola has already made a splash with another mid-range offering the Moto G in such markets, and the Moto E looks poised to do the same.
While it’s not as sleek as the GS5 or the LG G3, the Moto E will impress even power Android users with its bright screen and simple design. With a $129 price point, swappable back shells, Android 4.4.2 and a lack of bloatware, the Moto E delivers a near stock Android experience that will make even HTC One M8 and LG G2 owners take a second look. The Moto E is a true case study of just what Android 4.4 KitKat can do with a low-end device.
