Motorola launched the Moto E last year and this handset proved to be an excellent pure Android smartphone for budget-conscious users. Now the second generation rolls out, bringing extended storage, faster connectivity and a more powerful processor, as well as a slightly larger screen. The new Moto E comes in two variants - one with 4G LTE and another that only has 3G network connectivity, but also a lower price.

These are the highlights of the second-gen Motorola Moto E:

  • Processor: 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 or 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (for the LTE variant)
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 32 GB
  • Display: 4.5-inch qHD multitouch with 540X960 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Cameras: 0.3 MP front, 5 MP rear with autofocus and HDR, but no flash
  • Connectivity: 3G or 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, micro USB, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS
  • Operating system: Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Battery: 2390 mAh
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.32 pounds; 5.11X2.63X0.48 inches
  • Colors: black, white

Unlike the first generation, the updated Motorola Moto E only comes in single SIM variants. The 3G-only Moto E retails in the US for $119.99 USD while the 4G LTE model costs $149.99 USD. They both can be purchased unlocked from www.motorola.com.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
