With the Moto E 3G (2nd generation) failing to live up to the standards and inferior in many ways to its competitors like Redmi and Lenovo, it was a matter of survival for Motorola to iron the chinks in its armor as soon as possible. With the Moto E 4G, they might have checked all the right boxes.
This Snapdragon 410 powered Dual SIM is available for pre-order on Flipkart at Rs 7999/-. It surely comes with a whole lot of additions than its predecessor, but is it going to be enough to beat the competition? Let’s find out.
To begin with, let’s compare the Moto E 4G with its predecessor and find out how it holds up
Moto E 4G Vs Moto E 3G
- 2GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor vs 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor
- 8GB inbuilt storage against 4GB storage
- 5-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels (qHD) resolution against 4.3inch display
- 4G LTE support Vs 4G LTE incompatible
- 5MP front camera and 0.3MP rear camera against only the 5MP front camera
- 290 mAH battery against the 1980 mAH battery
- 1 GB RAM in both
- 32GB Micro SD card slot in both
Almost all the other features remain the same across the two models. The 4G LTE support is what Motorola would be counting on to win back some of the customer base.
The 4G LTE incompatibility was a big letdown for Indian users with many of the cellular operators beginning to offer 4G services across Indian cities. However, they have made appropriate corrections in the new model. We will have to wait and see if this hasn’t come too late.
