Moto E Offers Decent Bang for Even Littler Bucks

It’s probably pretty revealing that every time I see the word “Moto,” I think not of Motorola but of Jet Moto for the Playstation. Is that just me?

Anyway! As a fan budget phones (that’s code for “I’m poor”), I’m tickled pink by Motorola’s new Moto E, their promising follow-up to their well-received budget phone, the Moto G. The Moto E doesn’t pack quite the punch that the Moto G did, which wasn’t all that powerful to begin with, but that comes with an even lower price tag.

The Moto E specs are as follows: 4.3-inch 960 x 540 Gorilla Glass 3 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 with 1.2GHz dual-core A7 CPU, Adreno 302 400MHz single-core GPU, 4GB internal storage expandable to 32GB via MicroSD, 1GB RAM, 5 MP rear camera (no flash), no front-facing camera, 1980mAh battery, Android 4.4 KitKat, and a Dual-SIM option.

The body is also water-resistant. Motorola is pushing the Moto E as a phone that can take a beating, which just adds another layer to its practicality. There are various colors and textures to choose from, as you’ll see in the video below.

What’s that? You really only care about the price? Oh, you pragmatist, you. The Moto E is launching this week in the US for a deliciously affordable $129 and in the UK for 89. Unfortunately, in Canada the phone will retail for $180, so I sympathize with my brothers and sisters north of the wall. Still, if you’re US-based, $129 for an entry-level, factory unlocked phone is a really hard deal to beat.
