The second generation Motorola Moto E is one of the best budget smartphones on the market and it even packs LTE with its humble price tag. Of course, as it was launched in February, the Moto E second generation came with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, but Motorola is keeping up its reputation of updating devices quickly by bumping the Moto E to Android 5.1.The $149.99 (unlocked) handset is getting its Android 5.1 Lollipop update in the United State now, but it is worth mentioning that only the LTE variant of the handset is getting the update. Of course, we suspect that the normal version will get the upgrade for now, but its only 4G users in for a new lick of Lollipop.
The new Moto E gets a quad-core Qualcomm processor, a Snapdragon 200 on the 3Gdevice and a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 on the LTE variant, both chips are clocked at 1.2GHz. 1GB of RAM is on board, as is a slightly larger 4.5-inch screen with 540 x 960 resolution. Elsewhere there is a 5 megapixel rear snapper with 720p video capture, a VGA front lens, 8GB of native storage, a micro SD card slot, and a 2390 mAh juicer. The Moto E can be customized with what Motorola calls Grip Shells or Motorola Bands. These new products "feature a unique ridged pattern which provides an even better grip."
