Motorola Moto E 2015


What’s New?

Some people were actually surprised when the original Motorola Moto E was released without a front-facing camera. How many smartphones come without front-facing snappers these days? Very few. However, the omission was forgivable given the very low price at which the Android device was sold. The good news is that the new Motorola Moto E is fitted with a front-facing camera.

The second-generation device will also come with the newest Android 5.0 (Lollipop), compared to the Android 4.4 (KitKat) that was provided for the original version of the device. The screen of the Motorola Moto E 2015 is slightly larger at 4.5 inches. The revamped budget Android smartphone also now comes with 4G LTE connectivity support. In addition, the device’s design has been tweaked a little, with its internal memory upgraded to 8GB from 4GB.
