MOTO E IS THE EDITOR’S CHOICE THE GOOD. Affordable with a Good battery life, Bright, colorful display Comfy, customizable design and all with No bloatware THE BAD Fuzzy front camera VERDICT The new Motorola Moto E offers Android Lollipop, LTE speeds, and a customizable design for just $150. Whether you’re buying your first smartphone or you just want a capable handset on the cheap, Motorola’s new Moto E ($150) should be on your shortlist. This follow-up to the original Moto E now supports 4G LTE, sports a front-facing camera for selfies and features a larger display. As with the original, you also get interchangeable shells to help you stand out. Despite some minor drawbacks, this is a great choice for the budget-conscious shopper. Design The Moto E has a solid, plastic body available in matte white or black, is slightly curved on all edges, and features a small, dime-size indentation under the camera. I liked this groove, as it offered a comfortable grip. The Moto E’s 4.5-inch Gorilla Glass display (up from 4.3 inches on its predecessor) is framed by a thin white bezel, and a speaker and VGA front camera sit on the screen. On the top edge is a 3.5mm headphone jack, while the bottom houses a micro USB port. A volume rocker and power button line the right side. At 5.11 x 2.62 x 0.48 inches and 5.11 ounces, the Moto E was a dainty addition to my purse. Although a little heavy for its display size, it’s smaller and lighter than the 2014 Moto G (5.57 x 2.78 x 0.24-0.43 inches, 5.25 ounces), which has a 5-inch display.
