Motorola Moto E (2015) is an interesting device released in 2015, coming with a 4.5-inches capacitive screen, an extremely powerful 1200 MHz Quad-Core 64 bit processing unit, a 5 megapixels back camera and a 0.3 MP front side camera. But it's time to get into a bit more detail.

This device doesn't feel very lightweight comparing with today standards, weighting 5.11 oz. This cellphone is quite a compact phone, given that it packs a 4.5" screen and it only has 5.11 inches long and 2.63" wide. Motorola made this phone in two colors, black and white.

Motorola decided to sell this phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 8916 system chip, backed up by a great 64-bit Quad-Core CPU ticking at 1200 MHz with only 1 GB of RAM memory which is a little bit poor comparing with its awesome processor. Graphic rendering usually eats lots of CPU time, so it counts with an extra Adreno 306 graphics processing unit clocking at 450 MHz to unload the CPU. An interesting feature of the is its 8 GB quite large internal storage and an SD card slot, allowing the user to install a couple hundred games and applications without worrying about space.

The includes a very good 4.5-inches screen with a 960 x 540 resolution, which makes all images and videos look vivid. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

The Motorola Moto E (2015) has wi-fi connection (but it can't provide it to other devices around, acting as a router), LTE 4G high speed internet connection or 3G fast connection type, supported by HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Micro SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 0.3 megapixels front side camera. It is capable of shooting 1280x720 HD videos at 30 fps. Additionally, the camera counts with some interesting features: auto-focus, HDR mode, fast burst mode and geo tagging.

This cellphone counts with a 2390 mAh huge replaceable battery that provides the Motorola Moto E (2015) an average battery duration.

The Motorola Moto E (2015) also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Navigation and NFC, and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

This cellphone is a nice phone that costs about 290 dollars, which is quite close to other similar devices. This cellphone is very appropiate for you no matter if you want a cellphone to majorly use social networks, need a device for work or are looking for a cellphone to play games.
