5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Moto E 4GB SIM-Free Smartphone - Black (Wireless Phone)
I am stunned, shocked. This device is nothing short of amazing. My main phone is an Xperia Z1, which is fairly top-end and I got this for rooting/flashing and general hijinks. This phone is really zippy though, the Rom is vanilla KitKat with a couple of motorola APKs installed. Wifi is a teeny bit slow and chrome is not amazingly fast, but runs about 80% speed of a 2014 flagship device. The screen is bright, with reasonable colour. This handles pretty much everything you can chuck at it though, for example - can run MS office mobile, typing with SwiftKey, with doubletwist playing music in the background - no problem. MX video handles SD video with h/w decoding with no issues, no stuttering, no loss of sync. In fact, I haven't encountered any slow-down on the device at all, at any point.

Only downsides are: no charger in the box (just a USB cable), you have to factor in the fact that you need at least a 16gb MicroSD card, its a bit fat and the back feels a bit cheap.

All in all, as a budget smartphone this scores a 10/10 in my book, as an android phone in general - a healthy 8/10.

Regarding the lack of a charger, it plugs into any computer to charge. I gather EU regulations demanded a standard charger specification several years ago which everyone(apart from APPLE) even the Chinese, have complied with, to reduce landfill of chargers. Most peoples existing chargers will simply work with this as it is a standard micro USB. I have noticed that a number of other phones only come with USB chargers and connect to a standard 5 volt input plug for mains charging.

I agree, you don't need usb chargers with every device. I now use my blackberry charger for my kindle and other mobile phones and have my spare at work.

I also agree.I recently "de-cluttered" my kitchen and was amazed at the amount of cables,plugs,adaptors etc that were in the drawers.
Like Debs I use a Blackberry charger for everything now with a spare in the bag I take to work.
