The new Moto E is out, but it is worthy of an upgrade, or purchasing for the first time?
The Moto E isn’t designed with the hard core mobile user in mind, and that’s just fine, but this year’s model is such a big upgrade we just had to compare the two of them.
First off, an upgrade to LTE is a huge step. Secondly, adding a front facing camera is never a bad idea. These weren’t the only upgrades, but to get a feeling for all of them in an easy comparison, just check out the chart below.
