Review: Motorola Moto E for Cricket Wireless
The Motorola Moto E definitely has flaws, but they are easy to overlook depending on your needs. As far as basic smartphones go, the Moto E comes close to firing on all cylinders.
The hardware is quite good. The phone is plain, but everything about it works. It is small and compact, made from solid materials, and the bumpers allow for a modicum of personalization. The display is a weak spot, but the Moto E makes up for it with solid network performance, excellent battery life, and average calling.
Android 5.0 works well on the Moto E and offers a respectable mix of features. The basic calling, messaging, and media apps all work well. The camera and video camera aren't that great, but the browser works well and the Motorola-made apps are a welcome bonus.
