Hands On : Newly launched Moto E for Rs. 6999

Browse This Page

The budget smartphone market is ready to be disrupted, Motorola in collaboration with Flipkart in India has launched the new Moto E, a smaller brother to the Moto G smartphone from the company. The Moto E has been priced at Rs. 6999 and it may as be responsible for bringing a real smartphone to the masses.

Next to Moto G

Next to Moto G

The Moto E goes on sale at Midnight tonight (13th May 2014), for Rs. 6999 with same day delivery in some cities. Specs wise the Moto E is quite impressive too the front has a 4.3 inch display that has a resolution of 540 x 960 qHD resolution and a pixel density of 256 ppi. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and also is splash proof. A 1980 mAh battery is inbuilt and is non removable, the Moto E comes with Android KitKat 4.4 out of the box and promises “Guaranteed updates” to the next version of Android.

Moto E 25

Powering it is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 A7 processor that is clocked at 1.2 GHz and is supported by 1 GB of RAM. On the back is a 5 MP camera that captures FVWGA video and the Moto E can playback 720p video.

The build quality is actually comparable to the Moto X and Moto G so the three devices are quite identical only to be disturbed by difference in specs. The back panel is exceptionally well built and the buttons seem very tactile to use. The device mostly feels much more premium in the hand and performs better than one can expect.

Moto E 1

The Moto E makes a lot of sense for a market like India, and where major manufacturers have been reluctant to bring their devices in this price bracket Motorola has been brave enough to deliver a device with a promise of instant updates along with features and customizability that most fail to offer.

  • OniRay

    Join the club. I’m most probably ordering this for my Mom as well. Was waiting for the ZenFone 4/5, but maybe I’ll just get this one for her. Bigger screen than the ZF4, but no front cam, nor HD recording is a bit of a bummer though when compared to the ZF4 :-(

  • OniRay

    AbhimanyuSingh1 The 630 costs twice as much. If you could afford a 10K+ phone, the MotoG will be the better choice overall – better than the 630 and the ME put together.

  • codegurru

    What about OTG support? and can we move apps to Memory Card?

  • Rahul Chauhan

    Wiill beat local china fones MM etc..

  • PranayAmle

    ritesh91 PranayAmle   Well I dont think thats true……I have seen Xolo A600, Samsung Galaxy Trend which have ICS but dosnt support OTG. But if Moto E support OTG i dont know.

  • Ashutosh Kumar Pandey

    It does not have flash and front camera only these two are missing, if Motorola can give it with increasing ?1500. It will be a complete phone for any person, in this price

  • Mayukh Chakraborty

    Prashant Hublikar

  • Manoj Yadav

    Well i think only those people want more who are already using a decent smartphone. But it is a great buy for one switching to this smartphone from basic phone.

  • AbhimanyuSingh1

    how does it fair against lumia 630 ? Really confused pls help

  • Mrinmoy Das

    Why this look?

  • Hitesh Salian

    its funny how people want so much in 7k

  • Roshan Lakhan

    yes it has

  • Parth Garg

    Earlier comment “Camera is not upto the mark and it lacks full hd video playback”..
    Dude 7k mai already water resistant, kit-kat, built quality mil rahi hai.. Aur ab Bhagwaan se mil lo..

  • Arup

    awesome phone in this price range

  • ritesh91

    PranayAmle  well all android phones that are running on ics or up support OTG, either natively or by external apps…

  • ritesh91

    why would u want full hd playback on a qhd display? seems pointless unless ur connecting it to a full hd tv which most people aren’t gonna do anyways..

  • Bharat Marorhiya

    i gifted last month a moto g bt i think E is a better option now

  • Bharat Marorhiya


  • Swapnil Kulkarni

    how much is the internal memory ?? also mention user available memory also…

  • Suvajit Karmakar

    it has a sd card slot or not?

  • Mohit Anil Garde

    The best BRANDED budget smartphone ever i guess!

  • Sapna Mulani

    A phone to be gifted to our parents. :)

  • Manoj Yadav

    Nope and rear lacks flash

  • Jm Nanjundesh

    does this model has secondary camera??

  • Manoj Yadav

    Camera is not upto the mark and it lacks full hd video playback rest all thing is brilliant considering price point

  • _IamManoj

    Brilliant phone for the price tag. But Moto G with 4G and expandable memory announced outside India. That could be a real game changer as well. but don’t see it coming to India.

  • Siddharth Kumar

    Awesome man..

  • Abhishek Parija

    Somewhat ok Moto X? Seriously? :)

  • PranayAmle

    Does it support OTG ?

  • Mohith Sharma
