Moto E review: Where very good meets very cheap

The Moto E has its shortcomings, but they're largely offset by the device's affordable price. While the more powerful Moto G is likely the better bet for most shoppers, those looking to ditch their feature phones without breaking the bank will find plenty to like here.

Pros
  • Runs an almost untouched version of Android 4.4.2
  • The vivid screen is a pleasant surprise
  • Rounded design makes for comfy gripping
  • Incredibly affordable
Cons
  • Only 4GB of internal storage
  • Rear camera is mediocre at best
  • No flash or front-facing camera
