Motorola Moto E hands-on pictures
The Moto E is Motorola's "game changer" phone. Priced at $129, it's among the most affordable full-featured Android phones available.
- There are just two buttons on the entire phone: one to turn it on, and a volume rocker to adjust the sound.
- Motorola's sticking very close to the stock Android interface, so there's very little about the Moto E that will be unfamiliar to practiced Android users.
- The Moto E's performance is markedly better than its price would suggest.
- A microSD card slot and interchangeable back cover offer some room for future upgrades and changes.
- There's an edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass screen covering the front of the Moto E.
- It wouldn't be a Moto phone without a rainbow of colours to choose form.
- The headphone jack is centered at the top of the phone, as with the Moto X and Moto G.
- Images from the 5-megapixel camera are poor, but at least performance is fast.
- The 4.3-inch display with 960 x 540 resolution is adequate for most uses.
- The same familiar curves of the Moto X and G are present on the Moto E.
- Motorola Alert is a new app introduced alongside the Moto E to notify family members in case of emergency.
- The 4.5-inch Moto G side by side with the 4.3-inch Moto E.
- Motorola is using a matching color palette for its Moto phone family.
- The Moto E lacks the Moto G's LED camera flash.
- Motorola is continuing to emphasize customization with a broad range of color and accessory choices.
- The dimpled M logo is also present and accounted for.
