'Aggressive low price point'
'Responsive, near-stock Android. '
'It looks great, has class-leading battery life and we love its light, bloatware-free approach to Android.'
'And with the new Moto E, Motorola has crafted one of the most compelling budget smartphones yet. '
'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.'
'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. '
