Marketing teams the world over would try and have you believe that everyone needs a £500 portable computer in their pockets, capable of simultaneously playing detailed games, downloading entire television series and connecting to half a dozen accessories.
For many of us though, the above is simply not what we'll ever be doing. If all you require is a modern phone that is more than capable of storing all your contacts and messages, plus be able to access the web and install recent applications, then the Motorola Moto E (2nd Generation) could be just for you.
Entry level endurance
At a very respectable price, the Moto E (2nd Generation) features one of the best specifcations available at this level. It is a significant improvement over the original Moto E, introducing a quad-core processor, updating the system and storage memory to 1 and 8 GB respectively and moving to a 4.5" screen with Corning Gorilla Glass.
Some cheaper phones might offer a similar spec sheet but drop out in one key area. The Moto E (2nd Generation) does everything well and should remain a phone you can rely on for a number of years.
Google Android 5.0 Lollipop
As part of Google for over a year, Motorola's smartphones are geared to work with the Android system. This includes ensuring they are ready for updates almost as soon as they are available without needing to tweak too much. It also allows for Motorola to include Android 5.0 Lollipop on all their 2015 devices.
Updating to Lollipop provides a modernised clean interface, modelled on what Google refer to as Material Design. This new style will be prevalent on all Google's services to provide a synchronised experience. Notifications have also been overhauled; they are now less intrusive and allow you (if you choose) to respond directly from the lockscreen or not interrupt your viewing when playing full screen games or movies.
Power management for all users has now been introduced - a power saving mode to reduce background processes has been included as well as advanced options for all Lollipop users.
With a 2,390 mAh battery, the all-new Moto E (2nd Generation) is designed to last a full day. Dash to school or work in the morning. Meet up with family or friends. Then head out for the evening. All without worrying about stopping to recharge.
Services and software
The Android system will provide you with most of the applications you should need, including Gmail, Maps, Photo Gallery, Hangouts for texting, Drive for documents and many more. You will also have access to Google Play to be able to install new applications from the Internet.
Motorola do not add much to the system, leaving the personalisation of Android to you. There are a few apps installed though - Motorola Migrate helps you transfer content from an old phone to your new Moto E (2nd Generation). Also Moto Assist and Alert, which work in combination with your calendar and contacts, to provide you with useful updates and reminders, throughout the day.
