I’m looking for a cheap 4-inch android phone with a newer OS, expansion, and decent hardware. There’s a ton of no-name import quad-band phones out there, but when digging deeper into the specifications, find out it’s got a 2 megapixel camera. Or it’s 3G only. Or it’s all plastic.
I read this review of the Moto G, and I’m impressed. My Motorola Atrix 4G which was part of my iPhone to Android experience was a great little phone, and Motorola did some interesting things with their MOTOBLUR interface.
Back to the Moto E — the current incarnation is 3G only, but the 2015 model is a solid feeling, unlocked Android phone running Android OS 4.4, 8 GB of storage, a 5 megapixel camera and selling for $119 for the 3G and $139 for the LTE version.
