Moto E (2015) specs

33

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 latest budget-priced Moto E (2015) packs a lot of tech into an affordable package. Here's what's inside.

There are, technically, three versions of the 2015 Moto E: US GSM+ LTE, US GSM, and global GSM. The LTE version has a more powerful processor and a different (though basically the same) GPU, but otherwise is the same (apart from costing more). Each of the three versions offers a different set of supported frequencies, so check them out to be sure about which version you'll need.

The new Moto E: LTE, Lollipop, and a quad-core processor

The all-new LTE-toting Moto E 2015

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.

The first Moto E was a budget-level success, and now it has a budget-level successor: the new Moto E (2015). It's in most every way an upgrade over the previous phone, all while keeping the same low cost that made it so popular in developing countries.

The new edition of the Moto E offers a larger 4.5-inch qHD display (960x540), and when you opt for the LTE version, a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor (the non-LTE version has a quad-core Snapdragon 200 chip inside). In addition, the Moto E has gained a front-facing camera, something that was missing from the first version of the phone. It even runs Android 5.0 Lollipop. All of this for just $149.99.
