Motorola Moto E launched for $129: Poor man’s Nexus?

After a very successful Moto G launch, Motorola are following it up with another budget package — the Motorola Moto E. Although we’ve seen quite a bit of this phone before, its only today that we’re glimpsing the specs sheet in all its glory, officially.

Moto E specifications

Google, and now Lenovo, both parent companies of Motorola are known for offering products at a highly competitive pricing. Thus it is no surprise that we see about the same Moto G-esque value proposition with the Moto E as well. Priced just $129 in the US, £89 in the UK and 6,999 INR in India, the device demands attention with a dual-core Snapdragon 200 CPU, 1GB RAM, 4GB storage + microSD expansion, a handy 4.3-inch 960 x 540 pixel display coated in Gorilla Glass 3, a 5 mega-pixel camera, a 1980mAh battery and the Android v4.4 KitKat operating system out of the box.


Motorola uses the same ‘all day battery’ terminology that it used with the Moto G here as well, which should give you an idea of how long the device can go on a single trip to the wall socket. That’s not all, the budget phone also comes with customizable shells like other Moto phones from Motorola so you can add a bit of you to your device.

Those in the US can get their hands on the Moto E via the official Motorola website, while folks based in India can head over to Flipkart to order the device.

Does the Moto E fit the bill of being a ‘poor man’s Nexus’ better than its elder sibling, the Moto G? We certainly think so.
