'decent construction and slightly arched casing'
'eye-catchingly low price tag'
'At 12.3mm thick the Moto E is a chunky little mobile, but the smooth curves of the soft touch back are a delight. '
'Too bad the screen registered a low 275 nits (241 lux) on our light meter.'
'New, improved Windows Phone 8.1.'
'The screen disappoints next to the best Android phones at the price, but otherwise this is a likeable phone for those on a budget.'
'As a low-end phone, things are quite basic with an LED-less rear camera, a rear-facing mono speaker and a microUSB charging port at the bottom. '
'As we’ve seen on Android phones packing this chip, the handset can cope reasonably well with even fairly flashy games and intensive apps. '
'Camera is sub-par, sorely lacking in detail.'
'One other pretty rubbish element of the screen is what it's made of.'
'You need to get around the 300ppi mark to get really good sharpness, and the Moto E does better the Xperia E1 despite its larger screen with 256ppi.'
'It’s not a terrible screen but – you guessed it – the Motorola Moto E offers a much better one. '
'The viewing angles are wide and colors are represented accurately.'
'decent overall spec'
'The HTC Desire is one of the best looking smartphones available right now.'
'It looks and feels like a great little phone, but it’s impossible to view it in isolation and on the current market there are choices which present better value for money at (and in fact below) this price point. '
