Motorola Moto E (2nd Generation) – Reliving the Glory

Updated on December 22, 2015

Until only the last year, Motorola’s Moto E was one of the best choices when it came to buying entry level smartphones. Even with the Moto E 2nd generation price in India set to less than Rs.5000, it cannot boast to be the most affordable smartphone in the market now, but it definitely is one amongst the most popular in this sector. Honestly, this model has frequently been compared with Lenovo’s A6000 and Xiaomi Redmi 2. Keeping in mind that they all fall under the same price category, the A6000 features additional 4G support (which by the way is also offered in the later models of the second generation Moto E, with an additional cost of Rs.1000), while the Xiaomi model offers a better display quality and an obviously better camera.

With that being said, Motorola has still managed to manufacture a handset sturdy enough for Android beginners. Let’s dive a bit deeper into the specifications to see what it holds.

Design & Looks

Slightly chunky when compared to the phones in trend now, this offering from Motorola measures 130x67x12.3mm. The phone retains the ergonomics and comfort of its predecessor, while also keeping with itself the strong unibody chassis.

Processor

The Moto E 2nd Gen makes use of a quad core Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. The cell employs a 1GB RAM in the backend, and comes with an inbuilt memory of 8GB. However, this should not stop you from taking your media with you, since the cell also features an expandable memory slot of 32GB.

Battery

Armed with a 2390mAh battery, the phone offered video playback for more than 13 hours during our tests (brightness set to 170cd/m2). This is considerably better than the original Moto E, and even better than the second generation Moto G.

Display

The Moto E 2nd Gen is relatively compact (4.5inches). With a slightly lower screen resolution 960x540 pixels, it is only obvious that PC-optimized websites were not clearly visible without zooming in. Nevertheless, with a 95.2% of sRGB color range, the display was still considerably clear.

Camera

The phone claims to have a 5MP rear camera, however, the shots are admittedly not that great. The 2nd gen also features a handy shortcut for quickly capturing pictures, like twisting the device back and forth. The model also features a front-facing camera, although with a very low resolution of 640x480 pixels.

Connectivity

There are a host of connectivity features in the 2nd gen Moto E. These include Wi-Fi (802.11n), Bluetooth 4.0 and 3G & 4G network capabilities. NFC support is absent.

The Moto E 2nd Generation price in India is Rs.4999, and the 4G version can be bought for Rs.5000. With the device running Android 5.0 out of the box, the affordable price tag and the sturdy body, it definitely seems like a handset set to last in the Indian market.
