Motorola has officially unveiled its latest smartphone! The Moto E (2015) is the obvious follow-up to the Moto E of last year, updating one of 2014’s best budget smartphone offerings.
But why should you part with your cash for the latest Motorola handset? Here are five reasons why you should be looking to grab the new Motorola Moto E!

It’s not very often you can say that you’ve got a 4G powered smartphone for less than £120, is it? Lucky for you then that the latest Moto E handset boasts a 4G variant which is guaranteed to give you super-fast browsing speeds at an affordable price.
This means that you can surf the web, stream music, browse videos and scroll through your Instagram feed without having to deal with frustrating buffering times. So, if you’re constantly surfing the web and streaming media, the new Moto E is the ideal companion!
Whilst many budget smartphones tend to fob customers off with operating systems that were at the peak of their abilities several years ago, the Moto E is proving an exception to the rule.
Staking claim to the latest Android operating system, the Moto E (2015) is offering the most up to date piece of software you can get. It brings a number of Google features along for the ride, as well as introducing the likes of Project Volta – which makes your smartphone battery last longer than ever.
So whilst you might be able to stack up to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6 with the new Moto E, you will at least share one of the best pieces of software with it.
Admittedly, you won’t be getting a flagship spec sheet for the price you’re paying for the Moto E, but you do get a valiant set of components to keep you going through the day.
Making a home for a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, you shouldn’t be getting knocked back by lag with the Moto E handset. Also, its Snapdragon 410 chipset and Adreno 306 GPU also help with plenty of your day to day activities, making the 2015 handset one of the best on the budget market.
Besides these already attractive specs we find 1GB RAM and 8GB of expandable storage, and a 5mp rear-based camera supported by a VGA front snapper. Overall, this makes for plenty of bang for your buck considering the Moto E’s price tag.
With Motorola taking charge of the design, we knew we were going to get something good with the latest Moto E device. It’s safe to say that we definitely weren’t let down by it either, with Motorola going all out to ensure that we’ve got a good looking, but also practical handset.
Its smooth plastic build might not be the most premium, but it offers a good feel and isn’t very flimsy. The standard button arrangement from last year’s device is also included, so if you’re upgrading you won’t feel like you’re dealing with an entirely alien design.
The only real change comes with the size of the device, which has grown to accommodate the larger 4.5” display.
Whilst the days of the Nokia 3210 and its week long battery are long gone, the Moto E (2015) does its best impression of the much-loved handset with a two day battery.
The 2390mAh battery that makes the cut behind the scenes is assisted by Project Volta from Android Lollipop, giving Motorola fans plenty of battery life to play with. Of course, if you find yourself constantly streaming media or using location services, it’s likely that you might see diminished performance.
Overall though, you’ll be finding yourself hunting for plug sockets on a much more occasional basis with the new Motorola device compared to the likes of the iPhone 6 and other flagship phones.
