It is the second generation of the Motorola Moto E , younger brother of the acclaimed Motorola Moto G and Motorola Moto X . After having appeared throughout the chapters of rumors, the Motorola company , now owned by Lenovo , has decided to present it in society. As you can deduce from its data sheet, this is a basic range model, specially designed for those users who trust Motorola technologies and are still interested in getting one of their smartphonesmost current. The device has several advantages: on the one hand, a technical sheet up to the task, which equips the phone with everything we would ask of a smartphone today (including compatibility with 4G networks ); on the other, the possibility of receiving the new Android updates on time . Not surprisingly, Motorola has shown on many occasions to be aware of the release of this type of data packet, doing it in a ready way. Even more than other manufacturers.
Either way, the Motorola Moto E 2015 will hit the global market in multiple versions. The international edition, corresponding to the model number XT1505, is the one that will be released in Spain . Next, we thoroughly analyze its technical data sheet.
Design and display
With a rounded design and very pleasant to the touch, the Motorola Moto E 2015 is planted as a second alternative to the original model, being, there is no doubt before its technical sheet, an entry-level phone, ideal for those users who trust in technologies from Motorola to enter the world of smart mobile telephony and also looking to get an inexpensive device. It will be available in two different versions , which are only distinguished by the color of the casing: white or black . It should also be noted that the cover has been completely made of plastic. But this is not all. The phone complies with dimensions of 129.9 x 66.8 x 12.3 millimetersand it weighs around 145 grams , so this is not an excessively heavy device.
The screen is your most important element. It has dimensions of 4.5 inches (diagonally) and is planted with a qHD resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, suitable for the reproduction of content in an acceptable quality. We are not facing a large screen, but considering the type of smartphone , we cannot ask for more. It includes, in fact, a density of 245 dots per inch and a high-quality Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer , essential if we want to prevent the main panel from being damaged soon by the bumps and scratches of daily use.
Camera and multimedia
Most smartphone users , no matter how simple, expect their phone to have a decent camera. This is also the case. The Motorola Moto E 2015 camera has a 5 megapixel sensor that will allow us to obtain images of 2592 x 1944 pixels, at most. It does not include flash (negative point, because we will not be able to take good captures at night), but it is prepared for recording videos in a resolution of 720p @ 30fps. In addition, it includes other elements and functions that are worth mentioning: a focal aperture f / 2.2, fast capture, autofocus, 4x digital zoom, slow motion video, continuous shooting mode, auto HDR, panoramic photos and the touch to focus function, very useful when we need to take a picture as quickly as possible.
On the front of the equipment we will find a second camera located, in this case with a fairly fair VGA quality , but enough to make selfies or video calls.
As for its multimedia functions , we can count on the basics. The Motorola Moto E 2015 is perfectly capable of playing music, video and photos in the main most used formats. These include the following: MP3, Midi, AAC, AMR, WAV, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, 3GP, MP4, and 3GPP. Additionally, the users of this smartphone will be able to enjoy the FM Radio with RDS and the loudspeaker , as a complementary system to have a better sound experience on board.
Memory and power
And now we are going to attack the heart of the terminal. The Motorola Moto E 2015 is equipped with a good Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with quad-core architecture and the ability to run at a clock frequency of 1.2 GHz . This part combines its functions with an Adreno 306 400 MHz graphics processor (GPU) that handles the reproduction of graphics and images, in addition to a 1 GB RAM memory . It is, as you can see, a normal capacity, on which it will be necessary not to overload: neither content nor applications. The objective? Ensure maximum phone performance, for as long as possible. The memory that we will find integrated in the international version is 8 GB , a space in which the user can save all kinds of information (music, videos, photos, documents) and applications. In the event that it falls short (which would not be strange) we can expand it with microSD cards of up to 32 GB .
Operating system and applications
As you know, and if we don't tell you, Motorola has been a company that has been very attentive to all the updates that have been made on its Android terminals. So, not at all strange that the Motorola Moto E 2015 comes fully equipped as standard with Android 5.0 Lollipop , an issue that brings a lot of interesting new features : Material Design , the new interface design Google ; Smarter notifications, quick setup, guest mode, more energy efficiency, and more. It includes, on the other hand, native functions and applications, designed by Motorola itself, and the wide ecosystem of apps that give access to Google's free services : Google Search, Gmail, Hangouts, YouTube, Google Maps with Navigation , etc. You also have direct access to Google Play , the Google application store from which you can download hundreds and hundreds of games and apps.
In connectivity, the Motorola Moto E 2015 gets very good marks. And it is that it is a smartphone compatible with 4G networks , which will guarantee a much more agile data download and navigation than would be usual in a 3G device . In addition, and like any other smartphone today, the Motorola Moto E 2015 is also compatible with WiFi wireless networks, with Bluetooth and GPS with A-GPS , an essential tool in the event that we want to use the device as a navigator for the car or enjoy those applications that also require this technology.
As for the physical connections, we have to talk about a microUSB 2.0 input , one output 3.5 mm headphone jack and a slot for microSD cards, ideal to expand the memory of your computer when needed.
Autonomy and availability
And now let's talk about autonomy, an issue that worries (and a lot) users. On this occasion, Motorola has decided to equip this smartphone with a good capacity lithium-ion battery ( 2,390 milliamps ), which should give us a range of up to 24 hours with mixed use . This capacity, it must be said, can be modified or affected by different factors, such as the applications that the user uses, connectivity, temperature, network status or battery conditions, which can decrease over time. weather.
There is still nothing written about its availability, but it is expected that after showing it at the Mobile World Congress 2015 , the Motorola Moto E 2015 can take its first steps in the global market. When that happens, we will learn more information about the specific launch that will take place in Spain , as well as exhaustive information on the prices and plans of the main operators in the market.
