Motorola equipped the Moto G with a LCD display measuring 4.5 inches. This display can render a screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (HD), which is quite impressive when paired up with a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch. The image is colorful, the contrast is bright and the graphics are sharp.
The Moto E is equipped with a slightly smaller display measuring 4.3 inches. This handset comes with a screen resolution of only 960 x 540 pixels which is also paired up with a lesser pixel density of 256 pixels per inch. Even though it doesn’t have specs as good as the Moto G does, the image is not bad.
The Motorola Moto G houses a non removable battery unit with a capacity of 2070 mAh. This battery is estimated to last around one and a half days of mixed usage which is actually quite a good period of time for your typical battery.
The Motorola Moto E houses a battery unit which has a capacity of 1980 mAh. Even though it’s not as powerful as Moto G’s battery, it can last up a good amount of time because the Moto E isn’t as power draining as the Moto G.
The processor that powers the Motorola Moto G is a Cortex A7: quad core working at 1.2 GHz which is paired up with the Snapdragon 800 MSM8226 chipset from Qualcomm and Adreno 305 GPU. The processor is backed up by 1 GB of RAM and it generally offers a very smooth performance.
The processor that powers the Motorola Moto E is a Cortex A7 as well, but this one is a dual core working at 1.2 GHz. The processor is paired up with a Snapdragon 200 chipset from Qualcomm and Adreno 302 GPU. Regarding the Moto E’s performance, we have here a description from Rich’s hands-on: “How is performance? Not too shabby as it goes, especially compared to similarly priced offerings from the competition. In a brief period of time with the Moto E I noted the following things which, in our book, are all very positive: 1) apps and games loaded promptly, 2) there was zero lag or hang while navigating the UX, and 3) basic multitasking (running a few apps at once) didn’t seem to cause the handset too much trouble. “
The operating system the Motorola Moto G and the Motorola Moto E run on is Android 4.4 KitKat. The company didn’t bring overlapping user interfaces – so you know you’ll get the full, pure Android experience Google offers. Motorola does whatever is necessary to bring updates to the software of their handsets, so you know you’ll be among the first people to experience the newest OS versions on the market.
