Style Name: 4G LTE - 8GBColor: White Verified Purchase
I got the Motorola Moto E LTE(2nd gen) 2015 model to replace my aging Samsung Galaxy S2.
I had the S2 for quite a while now and never really thought about upgrading until files would sometimes become corrupted and undeleteable, wifi connection would be finicky half the time, sometimes my carrier wouldn't be detected or connectable to, call quality with the onboard mic/speaker was poor(Bluetooth headsets do not have this problem) but most irritating of all most apps would take 4-8 seconds to start up no matter what I did to optimize the android system. After seeing all the fancy models coming out I decided I needed an upgrade.

I mainly chose the new 2015 Moto E due to press provided by reviews on YouTube and online. I was made aware of its pros and cons from the very start. I new it wasn't gonna be like these new flagships raging all over the news, but I didn't need it to be. I wanted a simple yet stable platform for simple tasks like youtube, we surfing, calls/texts and email. Something that started applications quickly, was stable and affordable.
I just got the phone today and it came in a tiny box, much smaller than what I saw some of the reviewers received. It contained the phone, a QuickStart guide, a Motorola specs and warranty booklet and a micro usb charger. Start up was very easy. I just plugged in my sim and SD card, connected to my wifi network and then logged into my Google account. Everything just synced right up. (IMPORTANT NOTE: it is not necessary to have a google account or use a wifi network. The phone will work just fine for calls with just the SIM card.)
The interface and experience of the phone is WAAAAY better than my previous phone. Apps start up right away, navigating between app drawer and home screen is a lot faster, no more lag! I'm so happy.

Is a really nice update for the old Motorola Moto E. Nowdays on $95 used to be $130 & used to be the best phone you could get for less than $130.

Now with this release of Moto E 2nd Generation you can be sure it is the best phone you could get for $120 & If you need/like LTE for $150 you could get Moto E2 version with LTE (But 4GB capacity instead of 8GB).
Trust me, you wont regret getting this "cheap" phone.

Improvements from Moto E to Moto E 2nd Gen:
* New Android (From v4.4 Kitkat to v5.0 Lollipop)
* More cores (From Dual to Quad)
* Front Camera (Added)
* Capacity (From 4GB to 8GB)
* Bigger Battery (From 1980 mAH to 2390 mAH)
* Larger Screen (From 4.3'' to 4.5'')

* No Flash.
* Only 5MB camera.
* Phone & Wall Charger only, No HeadPhones nor USB cable.
* Low Capacity.. Even Improved to 8GB isn't big enough (for me, since you can use ONLY like 5GB)...
- I think it should be minimum 16gb.. of course you can use a microSD, but some apps wont allow you to move to the SD card & thats a problem sometimes if you've too much apps.

At the end is an amazing phone, considering is only 120$ we get so much.

After using it for one month everything is working fine. So if you bought one and have any kind of problems using it (sound, screen, anything) just return it and ask for a new one.

Style Name: 4G LTE - 8GBColor: White
I bought this straight from Motorola the day it was publicly announced, and I absolutely love this handset! While I was bummed about Youtube scaling back to 480p software wise, you can tell that the screen is actually pretty phenomenal for its class when streaming 1080p Netflix (the difference is very visible even on a qHD screen). As a daily driver, I actually prefer the Moto E 2nd Gen LTE to my ol' Nexus 5, because the battery lasts much longer, which helps the Moto E carry daily tasks out better. I *REALLY* love how the Moto E fits in my hand. To me it's definitely better feeling in the hand than an HTC One M7, especially when the M7 gets toasty. The Moto E tends to also stay relatively cool under stress, which I can't say for my One M7 and Nexus 5. But overall the Moto E feels a lot "friendlier" than any of the aforementioned phones, and I have a lot more peace of mind running around town or going out at night with this phone. It is by far my favorite phone to date, even when stacked against all the flagships I've owned.

-way better build quality over 1st gen (the loose backplate and light leakage are absolutely gone)
-4.5" a nice form factor, exceptionally nice to use with one hand, esp with Moto ergos
-excellent real world battery life due to low res screen and big battery
-quick and clean vanilla UI (should get even better with 5.1)
-*excellent* LTE bands for America+Canada (all of the Americas from what I understand) - getting 40-50 mbps down / 25 mbps up in my area on T-Mobile unlt'd
-Snapdragon 410 actually feels faster than 400 in real world usage
-bloody brilliant customer service (instant call/chat button in built in "Help" app)
-price, obviously.

Style Name: 4G LTE - 8GBColor: Black Verified Purchase
Much improved from last years model on every level whether it be the larger screen, autofocus camera, larger battery or upgraded CPU. I've been a journeyman looking for the best cell phone at a reasonable price point after issues with my iphone 6 shortly after launch, and finger pointing with carrier and vendor. I decided to buy an unlocked phone - and went through a number of options from Blu, to the One Plus One. I haven't been completely satisfied until my Moto E LTE arrived Friday, which I can say is an awesome offering at an extremely low price point.

I had previously used a 2014 Moto G as well, however had some performance issues and battery life was less than expected. I can happily say neither of those issues are present with the new Moto E. I use this device with AT&T and was able to simply call, provide the IMEI, and utilize my old LTE sim card to activate the service. On first reboot I did not receive LTE, the rep was able to assist in enabling the LTE service properly - this seems to be an issue of the past with AT&T and unlocked phones as the procedure was painless. LTE Performance seems pretty reasonable on par with the other two devices I tested - iPhone 6 and One Plus One - all receive roughly 30 to 32 Mbps at my current location.

The LTE model ships with the new Snapdragon 410, which is 64-bit, however the Android 5.02 version the device ships with is in fact the 32-bit offering. Performance seems to be much better than the older 400 which still ships in the LTE Moto G, and Non-LTE 2015 Moto E. I assume these are more power efficient as well because I seem to be getting about 8 to 9 hours of screen on time with the device.
