The Motorola Moto E 2 Generation was a device that when it was introduced I did not leave anyone indifferent, first for the way in which Motorola presented it, taking to the main media a mysterious box where a small stage was mounted to show us this device and second for its specifications, numerically superior to those of its older brother the Motorola Moto G 2 Generation, which made the users of the latter not end up very happy. It has been more than a month since Edu showed us how the device moves in general, but today, the Pro Android team We bring you the analysis of the Motorola Moto E 2 Generation.
When we see the box we realize how compact it is the terminal, since it has practically the same size as the device, so when opening it, the first thing we find is the front of the Motorola Moto E 2 Generation. The design in general It is very similar to the entire Motorola Moto range, with the characteristic logo of the American firm on the back, in a very comfortable position to place the index finger. When we have it in hand it gives us a robust feelingz, perhaps because the thickness is quite high, exactly 12.3 millimeters at its thickest part, and the interchangeable frame gives us a plus of ergonomics, since it has a rough texture that makes the Motorola Moto E 2 Generation not can slip us. The keypad is well positioned, within easy reach in any position and the unlock button has the same rough texture as the frame, helping us to find it more easily. Despite its good placement, the buttons have very little travel and sometimes you are not sure if you have pressed them or not, but that is because the buttons are part of the interchangeable frame, so they are not fixed.

Despite the reduced screen size of this terminal, relatively speaking, we are talking about a panel of a quite remarkable quality, with a minimum brightness level low enough to use it in the dark without leaving you blinded but the maximum brightness it's not high enough enough to use the Motorola Moto E 2 Generation in broad daylight. The viewing angles are almost perfect, I've only noticed a loss of color saturation when looking from above.
This Motorola Moto E 2 Generation has a 5 megapixel rear camera, which in resolution is the same as in its predecessor, but it shows that sensor quality has improved, although it still does not give good results. In good light conditions, the camera is decent if we want to use it only for our social networks, but once the light begins to disappear, it appears large amount of grain or noise in our photos (partly because of absence of LED flash), and any light dazzles our photography, which spoils the shot. As for the video, it can record in 720p resolution, although the most interesting feature is the ability to record into slowmotion in HD resolution.
About the front camera, we better not talk too much, with its VGA resolution I have limited myself to using it on social networks such as Snapchat, since the photos have a very poor amount of detail and very grainy, but taking into account the price of the terminal you are forgiven.
For this section I could not find another word apart from Excellent. The battery life is very good, both if you are a basic user or if you like to squeeze your smartphone at all hours you will arrive with a battery at the end of the day. In cold, the figure that indicates the capacity of this battery is 2390 mAh and to give you an idea, I I managed to get 6 hours off the screen during one day full and more than 4 and a half hours for a day and a half approximately.
If we talk about Motorola, practically everyone knows that they are terminals where we find Pure Android, in this case in Android version 5.0.2 Lollipop with some other added by the North American firm such as the way Ambient Display, a very interesting and comfortable function in my opinion that uses the sensors of the terminal to know when we take it out of our pocket or lift it from a table and so on. show us the notifications we have. Also, if we have this mode activated in our Motorola Moto E 2 Generation, the screen will be activated for a few seconds when a notification arrives to show it to us, as long as the proximity sensor does not detect anything close, thus we will prevent the screen from turning on by itself in the pocket. Regarding the software usually, everything is very fluid, multitasking is fast, scrolling in the applications and on the web they are very smooth and we don't get any jerk. The only time I had a laggy feeling was after trying various games and having them multitask while using social media.
Perhaps this section interests you many and is the games section. Despite talking about a terminal with a very reduced price, 129, it is a smartphone able to move heavy games with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, specifically I have tested the Modern Combat 5, Asphalt 8 and Leo’s Fortune and in all of them I have been pleasantly surprised, since it moves them perfectly, although in Modern Combat 5 in its online mode I have come across some tug of lag occasional, so if you like to play on Android but do not have a high budget, the Motorola Moto E 2 Generation is a terminal to consider.
After trying this terminal for a while I have to say that I ended up getting used to its fluidity, its battery, the animations of Android 5.0 Lollipop, etc. so going back to my phone with Android 4.4.2 KitKat and with psima battery has become very difficult for me. With this I want to explain that the Motorola Moto E 2 Generation is a excellent terminal for its price range, with some other defect such as that of the cameras, but no smartphone It is perfect, so there is no problem for that and more considering its price. On a scale of 1 to 100 I will rate it with a 70, since this terminal gives us good and very interesting features despite the compact and affordable it is and it is certainly very capable of rivaling higher priced devices.
