Still wondering whether to BUY the Moto E? We have listed out the things we like and things we don’t like about the Moto E:

Like:

Don’t like:

Competitors:
– SONY XPERIA E1 DUAL
– NOKIA X
– SAMSUNG GALAXY S DUOS 2

Compare the Moto E vs Sony Xperia E1 Dual vs Nokia X vs Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 on Flipkart

Verdict:
– The Moto E beats its competitors in all departments except the Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 which comes with a secondary camera + an LED flash but it is more expensive, priced at Rs 8594 but then you will miss out on a larger screen, bigger RAM, latest Android OS and Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
– If you are big into #selfies and plan to use the Moto E for Skype/Viber video chats and cannot live without the LED Flash then give Moto E a skip.
– Moto E offers exceptional value for money hands down.

Moto E is going to eat its competitors for breakfast in the budget/entry level smart phone category. Samsung, Sony and Nokia will have to rethink their product and price. Until then BUY the Moto E.
