The Motorola Moto E (Gen 2) is indeed power packed with its 2350mAh battery. Both the variants support single-SIM and are identical in terms of specifications, except that the 3G variant Moto E packs a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 SoC (with Adreno 302) whereas the Moto E LTE features a 64-bit quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC (with Adreno 306).

The Motorola Moto E and Motorola Moto E LTE clearly don’t have much to sell. The price and specifications, just don’t add up for the Indian Market. For the price of Motorola Moto E (2nd Generation) LTE, one can also choose from the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G and the Micromax Yu Yureka.
