What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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.
The feel of the phone is very solid, no rattles or creaks noted. The back has a nice matte finish. It weighs just as much as my Galaxy S2, which isn't a lot. I'll take some photos and post them here. The phones are equal length and width, but the Moto E is definitely thicker overall. The E despite its thicker body, feel better in the hand due to the gentle curvature of the edges. Thus allowing your fingers to better "wrap around" when reaching or swiping on the screen. Screen sizes are about the same with the Android buttons being onscreen on the Moto E vs on the bezel with the Galaxy. Looking closely, the screen of the MOTO E is a bit sharper, while the S2 has a slight blue tinge to it. This review feels a bit long winded and I hope it helps someone.
-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. (u could go with a chinese manufacturer but i guarantee you will not receive the same top notch customer service, LTE bands, best in industry software updates, or overall thoughtful design.)
-microSD capacity: load this bad boy up with a 64GB/128GB puppy and get cracked out on beats or whatever u do with ur offline storage
-light sensor finicky in total darkness (also the case on my Moto G 2nd Gen) [edit: this was fixed in the 5.1 update]
-no HDMI out, Chromecast not currently optimized for taking advantage of superb LTE connection
-no LED flash/torch
Overall, a very nice phone that punches well above its weight and truly does 90% of what flagships can do for an eighth of the cost. If you want a phone for decent multitasking for daily tasks, while you're on the move, look no further. I got used to the qHD res pretty fast and for most purposes it's way more than livable, thanks to decent colors, brightness, and viewing angles. If you want to consume lots of video.. until Google gets Chromecast working with a direct LTE connection, maybe go with a Nexus 6. For the money though, this is a way smarter iPhone 4S alternative.
(Recommended especially for ABG's that end up getting smashed and smashing/losing their flagship phones. Srsly idk how y'all do that to $600 phones. Just. Wai.)
