The Motorola Moto E will compete with a host of entry-level Android and Windows Phone smartphones. In spite of its dirt cheap price, it comes with a decently high resolution screen, latest version of Android and anti-smudge coated Gorilla Glass 3 screen protection. The Moto E is surely to be a best-seller due to its value for money factor as well as a fact that most of the smartphones in its price range aren’t as decently equipped. Competitors in its price range are from local brands which are known for notorious build quality issues and lack of software updates.
