I like it and would recommend it.. it's a good deal for the money.
As long as you don't want to take pictures at Night. (it has no flash)
And playing games like GTA are probably not going to run well.
I bought the retail version LTE which has the better CPU etc.
It has run great last 6 months no major slows downs or crashes either.
My battery lasts like 2 weeks sitting idle since i never use it for phone calls / txt's etc.
I heard reviewers gripe about the view in sunlight but i think it's fine.
The Micro SD card slot is your friend.. buy a card asap (phone does not come with one)
Front camera is useless for Selfie's but the rear one is not too bad for landscapes or up close with things (auto focus) works pretty good.. The twist to activate camera feature is cool and the Telus version i got had 1 app installed extra on it "My Telus".
So it seems like a really clean version of Android.
It was bundled with Lollipop but Canada was said to be getting the Marshmallow update Moto's blog said.. although i don't know if that means some or all or no carriers in Canada will ACTUALLY receive it.. It would be up to Telus to have final say if it goes out.
Lollipop is fine though and we have leaked firmware for Marshmallow from India on XDA so there is that.. oh and the build quality is rubber / plastic but it still feels well made to me.. It seems like a fairly thin phone too.. AND i found a charger for an HTC phone that has a higher voltage on it and it charges my phone in less than an hour, i looked up the Quick Charge spec and it does NOT support it but a more powerful adapter can drastically cut down charge times (the original one it comes with takes like 12 hrs)
AnonD-508527, 27 Feb 2016This deal sounds fantastic. Is it in Ontario? Thanksif there is not any sound then what is good with this phone this is so very low quality product of this lenovo company they are lying and they understand customer as a fool as they understand. they have not in mind set any thing there are lot of peoples they can make stop this company if they are doing this kind of activity . i face sound issue in phone up to last 1 month and when i go for care center they resolve after that 1 week same issue generate . what the fucking is this . is customer free for every time to go service center ......
Sorry to communicate that the phone is giving trouble as frequently the international calls are dialing in my mobile,what are the solutions.Please help
Got marshmallow update in India. Thank you Motorola. The advantage is that the SD card can be internalised and memory expanded. Now the storage problem and hanging are things of the past. Great job. Keep it up.
This phone is great at the price I paid for it. $99 off contract, with Telus/Koodo. Quad core that is fast and responsive, runs Lollipop, getting Marshmallow soon, runs 3D games, Dead TRIGGER 1 & 2, Modern Combat 5, so it'll run Candy Crush, Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, only complaint is limited storage but you can use a 32GB microSD card, and get 40GB storage, or use cloud storage to expand memory, RAM is sufficient enough for basic usage, for games you'd need to close all opened apps (swiping away app cards), in general, it's a great phone for your money. Oh and camera is good too, it's autofocus! Best in its range. Beats those cheap Huawei phones.
XT1514 and XT1523 (Brazil) are receiving Android 6 (Marshmallow) since this week... :-)
AnonD-468425, 17 Feb 2016Finally received Marshmallow update in India:)i have moto e2 3g so when will we get android 6.0 marshmallow i am also in india
Never buy this phone ...Poor service from Motorola . I am going to sell this off. Highly dissatisfied
Anyone in canada get 6.0 yet??? We have 4 of these in my family we all like them alot and 6.0 would be nice :)
The twist to bring up the camera is now integrated into my life.
Now I judge every phone I want to buy by the lack there of.
I don't suppose someone made an app for that just yet, but I do know that there is a moto display app, and I'm eager to try that out on a non-Motorola device.
If I ever get another device that is.
I don't want to get another device because what is offered to me by my Moto E2 is actually quite astounding.
Every day I can get At Least Four Hours of screen on time, but that's only because of the low ppi and the small display.
Most smartphone reviewers are basting their eyes with phones usually featuring 300ppi or more, which is why it isnÂ’t a surprise when they blithely cast away the screen as having soft or fuzzy text when in reality, 245ppi is what everyone sees everyday with printed material, and no one complains about the fuzziness of text on paper, or screams for sharper text in books.
But I digress, I'm an avid youtube watcher and having just 480p to watch my Casey Neistat blogs with is just unsatisfying.
I can choose to watch movies, or listen to music Without earphones, because of the Very Good Front Facing Speaker.
I take Good Pictures with the camera and I do use the Okay Moto Camera App, because that's the only camera app the twist function will take you to.
Of all the complaints everyone has about the simplicity of the camera app, I will say that at least there is nothing to hate, but that's only because there IS nothing.
Since the Bad Front Facing Camera isn't my choice for selfies, I like that it's Convenient to take selfies with the front because of the 'tap anywhere to capture' feature of the camera.
I'm happy to see that this is optional in the Galaxy 5.
I wonder about how more capable this device could be with more RAM, as I surf Chrome and listen to music... app crashing.
Yeah, that's about the only thing I have problems with because I'm not an aspiring gamer, nor a workhorse so I don't do a lot of word processing or research.
Youtube-ing and Chrome-ing and some other cool retro looking 8-bit games all consist of my daily routine.
That's another thing, Minecraft is a hardware intensive game, even if on mobile (and don't let the graphics fool you) but I was able to play it.
Like, without any skips or bumps that would deter me from enjoying the game.
If there is another phone out there for me, it would be the Moto E2 BUT with some improvements:
Â• a better camera (I know this is vague, but I can't just say that an 8MP camera is going to do any justice when everyone is busting ZTE's balls with their phones sporting 8 megapixels, so obviously what I mean by "better" is: a bigger sensor and better post-processing software),
Â• advanced camera app features (keep the 'wheel' and the "touchanywheretocapture," I don't care, I don't want to have to download a different app just for framelaspes or buy a hyped up "DLSR PRO PLUS" bullcorn app. Especially when the twist isn't programmable to bring up any other app but the moto camera app),
Â• STABLE Android Marshmallow (I know all about the wonders of INDIA getting Marshmallow, but the rest of the world has feelings, too, y'know),
Â• and finally more space because everyone knows 8GB of internal is actually 5GB of internal which is actually a little more than 3GB of internal you get for yourself, which everyone knows is hoopla.
i use it for last 6 months. it got heated while browsing net. and also for last few days, it never sleep when it kept inactive. is there any solution?
