For everyday usage this is the best phone u can find, I got it for 5k which comes in my budget, in this prize segment u I'll find lot of options my 2nd opt will be redme2(if u have extra 2k) go for it... Or settle to moto e
Second day with it and I already want to smash it. BT is terrible when ANY other radio is enabled. It's so slow that it's almost unbearable. I'm coming from an S3 and this feels like I've gone back in time. I had a 1st gen Moto G and I loved it, so I thought the new E would be something I could live with until my upgrade in July. Was I ever wrong. This is the first Moto phone I've had that I absolutely despise. (Previous: SLVR L7, A780, Atrix, RAZR, Moto G.) I think I actually hate the G more than I hated my Sharp AquosPhone(SH06D), and I REALLY hated that phone.
I regret not getting a used Moto X, even if it meant living with only 16GB and no mSD. For $50 more, I could have been a lot happier. Maybe if it gets Marshmallow it could improve, but at the moment it looks like I'll be opting for an early upgrade.

Its been 7 months using this phone and regarding the everyday daily usability of this phone i am pretty satisfied. The reason why I am reviewing this phone is that during my journey with this I came to know about quite a lot of things and just wanna share them with all.
Let's start from the beginning, when Motorola first launched its "moto g" after its comeback I was totally impressed by the quality of device Motorola was offering at an unbelievable price point. Its got a quality snapdragon processor, built with high quality materials, etc.
The thing which impressed me the most was that the phone was able to withstand under the water!! even though it was not being marketed as being water-resistant. :"The phone's got killer built quality".
Then More phones came into the Indian market i.e. moto x and moto e.
Non of them were crap!!
From then I started respecting Motorola, for following 2 reasons :
(i)Like other major companies like Samsung , HTC, LG, Sony. Motorola was not selling any crap.
(ii)Their Phone line up quite limited to just 3 phones(at that time). While other companies have got dozens of phones even in the same price catagory.
Then I convinced my whole family to buy Motorola.
I have used them all.
The first thing that come to my mind while holding a Motorola phone is about their build quality. All of them feel quite nicely built.
BUT that's were I got disappointed with both the 1st and 2nd gen moto "e", after using them for a few months. No complaints with moto g(s)
The old gen model was built with high quality material so as the new one. But just after opening and closing its back-cover it got loosen up. I totally got disapointed.
COMING TO THE PHONE :
ABOUT THE BANDS AND ITS BUILT QUALITY:
When I purchased the 2nd gen moto e, I hoped the same problem will not be their with their bands. But now after 7months, its band has got loosen up and also has deformed a bit.
When I first came to know about these bands that moto e has instead of having a back-cover. I thought it's quite an innovative idea. I thought May be, since this hasn't got any back cover, it will be more protected against water damage.But that's not the case. I watched on YouTube one guy just mess-up his moto e by droping it in water. Even the 1st gen moto e or even !st gen moto X!! couldn't handle water damage.(only moto g can, quite confusing).
Also these bands are know annoying me. First of replacement bands are out of stock form the last 4 months. I ordered Chinese ones, but they don't fit the phone perfectly and are also quite fragile.
Its good to have rubberized coating on the back of this phone but what if this coating starts to peel off (on my phone it has started to peel off which is completely normal). We can not replace its back!!. This damage is permanent!! there is no way to get rid of it!!
Also since it has got bands, it certainly limits the extent to which one can customize its appearance.
OTHER ASPECTS OF THE PHONE:
Talking about the other aspects I am quite satisfied.
the front camera is pretty much useless.
The back camera can beat iPhone 4's 5mp camera IN broad DAY light (Only)
while the indoor shots and night and even during those near sunset are quite noisy.
literally speaking IN Ample lighting conditions It can Beat iPhone 4.
In every other field the Phone performs brilliantly.
MOTO Display and MOTO Actions are quite addicting and usefull.
Pin Pointing :----- ITS Battery Life just amazing!!
If you have read some other reviews people are saying about the mic problem.
Yes It has got that problem. But It's due to some other reason (not because of mic positioning at the back). Once I tried Covering the mic during conversation, but the voice was still getting delivered to the other end.
Actually I pointed out that when i press the back of the phone quite hard, the person in front starts complaining that the voice is not getting delivered. MAy be its due to the antina lying there.
IT will give this phone 3.2 rating out of 5.
BUT certainly will not recommend to any one. Better to add some money and buy A moto g (2nd gen LTE variant). Even buy the 1st gen moto g (If you can)
Hope Motorola to start making phones just like 1st gen Moto G i.e."exceptional!!"
guys... please guide me.... does the speaker works good?.... I just ordered this product.... is it worth to buy....

It runs many, maybe most games but 1gb memory aint enough.

internal storage will run dry in no time (8bg - many Gbs fom the system)
krish, 07 Dec 2015I want to know the performance of this phone with regard to vocie clarity and battery life.
Both are real nice.
Battery lasts more than most in this price range and call quality is equally good.
Probably the most ok things about this phone.
I have one for 9 months.

It gets quite slow with time, but runs drastic with virtually any rom supported with relative ease. The only problem is its lack of memory, witch resets drastic if you open another app then go back to the emulator.
4G version will be upgraded to 6.0, just ordered today because of that.
