Motorola is attempting to tap into an underserved market by creating an affordable smartphone for first-time users. The Moto E is a basic smartphone that costs $129.
The inspiration behind Moto E was the significant number of users in the world who prefer a lower priced phone. Moto E allows users to connect to the Internet, play games, and do most things one would want to do with a smartphone, but it costs a fraction of other devices.
Moto E is an unlocked device that you can use with any cell phone provider. It has a 4.3 inch display made out of Gorilla Glass, which Motorola says makes it water resistant. It comes with a 5 megapixel rear camera but no front camera, making video chatting impossible. While you can use Moto E with a 4G network, its connection capabilities are much lower than those of other phones.
The Moto E may not have the most advanced features, but it will help you transition into the smartphone world.
