From mid-2014 to Oct 2015 my family bought 3 Moto-E handsets; the last a 2nd Gen. The first collapsed and refused to go to the start page. It remains that way as repairs for unreliable out-of-warranty sets are unjustifiable.The second did the same and the motherboard had to be replaced (it was within warranty). The 2nd Gen emptied the fully charged battery overnight without use for 3 consecutive days. This was an unused phone. Flipkart tech helped me to get the battery to charge, made me do a factory reset and urged me to get Android updates. Now the keypad hangs intermittently . It picks up the domestic wi-fi hesitatingly. The second Motorola does so easily.
Moto-E, regardless of 1st or 2nd Gen, is a trouble prone phone.
If you have a choice, buy something else, not necessarily the latest and greatest, but reliable, with a countrywide service backup.
Moto E 2nd gen LTE XT1524 is NOT Global model, it's LTE Europe model.
The Only Global model is XT1505 (3G Global)

sad, 08 Nov 2015good phone , value for me, but the cable for transfer of data is not available...why Moto?It is available
I bought this phone brand new, I am a little disappointed with it, I thought i could do more with it than my previous phone (LG F3 T-mobile version bought second handed)
I had more apps on the old phone than in this one, and it was just a 4GB with 1.2gb available. It is not compatible with some apps a wanted have like Drastic it was running perfectly in my previous phone.
In calls, is horrible i'd wish smashing it agains the wall, trust me is imposible hearing a call with it.
When i bought it the packaging promised having a Better performance in battery than others phone in its category but it just holds in charge a day as i regulary do with previous phone. I wish go back in future and get the LG spirit than this phone.
Previously owned: Sony Xperia Z I purchased this phone for $90 on Amazon.
-Great intro smartphone
-Bluetooth is fast
-Microphone (phone calls are impossible, i use a bluetooth headset but otherwise impossible)
good phone , value for me, but the cable for transfer of data is not available...why Moto?
Picked it up from Amazon for INR4500. It came in a neat packaging and the in-box accessories include headset, charger, and phone guide. The one thing that is so needed but missing in the box is the data transfer cable. Have been using it since 17th October, and here is my take on it:
Battery: the 2390mAH is seriously great and after playing games like Temple Run2, Angry Birds for more than an hour, and browsing as well as talking for 3 hours, the remaining battery was 40%. That is seriously good performance.
Screen: The screen is perfect and there are ways to adjust the screen brightness, which itself is a battery saver. If the brightness is too low then the screen is not visible in the sunlight.
Speakers: The speakers are good. They don't sound dolby but the music or loudspeaker calls are crystal clear. The same goes for the headset. I am using a JBL and the sound really comes out pretty nice.
Camera: It is 5MP and thats what you get. Daylight pics are great although night pics are hazy.
Apps: It comes with built in apps, which take up about 2GB of space. You can download more apps like the cleanmaster to keep your space and RAM free. Certain apps can also be transfered to the SD card using settings.
No Lag: There is certainly no lag on the screen when you are hopping from one app to another. The snapdragon 200 makes everything run smooth.
Corning Gorilla Glass 3: Yes, it is not only scratch proof but no messy thumprints also.....makes the screen more visible.
USB: It only works with a data cable and not an OTG
All in all, the Moto E 2nd Gen is a seriously good handset that gives you just about everything you would need in a budget smartphone!
