I have had my Moto E 2nd gen 4G LTE now for a couple of weeks. I mostly use my phone for texting, calling and whatsapp. I traded my low end Samsung for this phone.
Shortly after getting the Moto E I updated to Marshmallow. I have been impressed by the smoothness of the phone, it seamlessly goes from one app to another. Voice quality, that some have criticized I honestly think it's quite good. The camera is good, although not family album worthy, for that I have an SLR. The battery is impressive as well, lasts me anywhere from a couple of days to more than that. I don't use it often for email or browse but haven't had any issues there.
The quality of the screen resolution is very good, as is the shell with a matte rubberized feel that I particularly like. For the price of this phone, I don't how you could do better.

Very surprised to see the large amount of negative reviews. I actually got this phone for free! Somebody donated it to charity as it had a smashed screen, but many charity shops cannot sell electronics so I am one of several people that go into the stores once or twice a week, chuck them a fiver or small donation and they hand me a box of electronics they aren't legally allowed to sell, that way the charity still manage to benefit that way. Regardless, that's how I got it, and even if it wasn't free, I would happily spend £50-£70 brand new I think. I was using an iPhone 4 so to upgrade back to an android was a dream!! It can be a little laggy and slow but it's all down to the owner of the device and what stuff is installed and downloaded and what's running etc etc. Point is; if the CPU is looked after (storage/memory/ram etc) and you don't slam it, it's a lovely little android and runs nicely. I can run a PSP emulator with high details games with almost perfect graphic/detail levels at about 75% speed, whereas so many people can't get certain games above 38% (such as.. Tomb raider anniversary) and I can run tomb raider legend at 100% perfect speed. Therefore= good phone ^_^
All five of my phones slip off and fell onto tile yesterday morning. I noticed my LG G3 Beat does have a tiny crack on top but screen is flawless. It was only a 1.5 ft drop but the Moto E2 and Lumia 640 came out unscathed. It was almost like it never happened when they hit tile face first. BUILT TO LAST over built to look good.
I am telling folks right now, durability and perfect ergonomics matters more than just pure aesthetics. A pretty but fragile phone doesn't mean much in the long run. A great design doesn't need a case because they shouldn't crack like eggs. The pioneers, Motorola and Nokia are still ace with durability and price value. Don't buy into metal design that dents and chips off. Only for fashionista suckers. Rubberized plastic is more practical for impact.
Moto E2 has the perfect structure for me. Rubberized sides that are replaceable. When it hit tile, a bounce effect. Doesn't dig into our palms either with sharp, boxy edges like an iPhone 4 or 5 series would. The ergonomics are more perfect for me than an iPhone SE or 6s since the height is perfect. This is a great phone and my current favorite because it is fast, comfortable to hold, and long battery life.
If it ever gets stolen or lost, it was only $30. *shrugs* Not like spending $600+ for a stupid glass phone that breaks easily. Plan to get iPhone 7 or 6se (whatever they call it), but I doubt it will top this Moto E2 which has 64gb inside as my fav. I just prefer Android more than iOS. And iPhones make terrible media players since limited video codec support, no file manager, heavily reliant on iTunes, no torrent apps, etc.
Loving Motorola again! Moto E2 is the best sub-$100 Android phone you can buy in the U.S. next to the ZTE Zmax 2. Most comfortable phone to hold for me since my Nexus One...
I had this phone for past 6 months is good , But the camera was bad and dust formed inside the camera lens and cannot remove backcase to clean the dust and other then that , this moto E2 is a good device to use
I have dad this phone for 10 months and have had a hard time getting on the Internet through the cell towers. How do I do that.
I have had this phone for a year now, and I love it! A lot of apps don't show up in the app store (device not compatible) but I just use APKPure to download the app I want and they all have ran just fine. (Yes, even Pokemon Go.)
I have Youtube, Twitter, Reddit, Discord, SoundCloud, CloudDrive, ES File Explorer and a few games + a few other apps. Then I also use a 32GB MicroSD card mostly for music and photos. A really amazing phone for It's price.
HELP....I cannot get my ringer, alarm, and voice message to work. I tried all the resets.
U can't get better from this in same price range.....best phone in this price...value for money

I caught several on my Moto E 2nd Gen LTE. Any crashes and freezes are most likely the game itsel. As of now the game is buggy, even on high end device.
Amazing. I've had it for about 4 months now. I love the hotspot and the size specifically. The only downside is it's not compatable with Pokemon go because it only has 1gb of RAM. It runs everything else smoothly and perfectly though
