Moto E

Motorola does the budget phone one better with the new Moto E

Motorola reinvented the low-cost Android smartphone — with something you'd actually want to use — and now it's pushing things even further with the $129 Moto E. Available in more than 80 countries, the Moto E takes the specs (and thus the cost) down yet another level, while still keeping its excellent design aesthetic and its flair for doing things just a little different.

Moto E, like its Moto G cousin, has interchangeable shells. It's got a smaller, lower-resolution display, and it's lacking LTE. But The price ... try to beat it.

We've got full specs after the break.
