'Despite this, the Moto E remains an impressive phone that puts rival low-cost smartphones well and truly in the shade. '
'Basically, Motorola still hasn't figured out how to make good cameras for low-end smartphones. '
'Like its predecessor, camera quality disappoints.'
'The surface is very reflective though and the pixel density isn't helping for sharp images.'
'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. '
'The new Motorola Moto E is proof that a cheap phone can be good, too; you're getting reasonable performance, a sharp display and LTE connectivity for $150, unlocked.'
'competent, affordable smartphone'
'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. '
'The look is simple and uncomplicated and we like that.'
'If you need a good-looking phone in this price range which will last up to two days on a single charge, then by all means consider the Xperia M2. '
'Using a large screen and flashy design means the Xperia M2 can easily pass for a top-end phone at a glance. '
'We found that it could last for two days of normal use between charging. '
