Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good performance
With a Snapdragon 410, the Moto E performs very well for regular tasks - it's the same chip found in the nearly-twice-as-expensive Moto G (2015), but the lower resolution screen draws less resources resulting is overall better performance. The one area is does lack is RAM - with only 1GB you will notice some slowdowns when you have a few apps open.
Pro Great battery life
The 2390mAh battery is very generous considering the smaller, lower resolution screen. Screen on times between 5.5-6.5 hours are common, which beats out even most flagship phones.
Pro Decent speaker
The speaker gets very loud, although the sound it provides can be a bit tinny at high volume.
Pro Water-resistant coating
While not waterproof (it can't be submerged or exposed to any pressurized water), it has protection against spills, splashes, or light rain.
Con Very poor camera
There's no flash, and pictures are always grainy. It does feature autofocus, and it takes pictures pretty quickly, but it's a very lucklaster camera.
Con Budget desgin
Just by looking at the Moto E you can easily tell that it's a budget phone. It still feels sturdy, however it is very chunky at 12.3mm (0.48") thick, and the bezels are large (screen-to-body-ratio is under 65%).
