Ed. Note: The 2015 Moto E, released in early March, will remain on Android 5.1 Lollipop and not be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which was made available some seven months later. As such it is not a smartphone we can recommend purchasing.
Motorola's ultra-affordable Moto E 2015 is now up for sale on Verizon Prepaid, with the model offering LTE connectivity listed for just $99 off-contract.
The discounted price of $99, down from the carrier's retail price of $199, makes the Moto E 2015 that much more enticing, especially if you're looking for a backup phone that offers LTE connectivity. The price is the same as that on offer with Sprint Prepaid, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile.
The specs on offer include a 4.5-inch qHD display, Snapdragon 410 CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, microSD card slot, 5MP camera at the back and a VGA front shooter along with a 2,390mAh battery. You get Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, along with Motorola-exclusive features such as ambient lock screen notifications via Moto Display and the double-wrist-twist gesture to launch directly into the camera app.
