Engadget Review

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.

I bought this phone last week from the Motorola website. it arrived a few days ago and wasn't disappointed. It was a great hone if you considered the price, but today when I got a call from someone and the ear piece wouldn't work. the speaker did though. Other than this manufacturer defect the phone is pretty good. Also the spec sheet on the website is wrong... this phone doesn't have flash for the camera.

I have owned other Android phones in this price range. The Moto E is head and shoulders above the others. You could easily mistake it for a much more expensive option. Great value overall.

The Moto Z3 Play packs a bigger, better screen and full Mod support

It's more stylish than usual, but Moto didn't skimp on the substance.
