Motorola Announces New Moto G Fast and Moto E Smartphones

0Share

Despite the recent announcement that Motorola was jumping back into the flagship market, it is still very much committed to delivering some of the best mid-range phones you can buy, a fact made evident by the newly unveiled Moto G Fast and Moto E smartphones. Both offerings appear to uphold the traditions and values of their respective product lines, including Motorola’s mission to give customers the best performance bang for their buck.

The Moto G Fast is the first of the new phones, and true to its name, it appears to be designed for speedy performance and fast response. The engine driving that performance consists of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in storage—all working together to run a near-stock version of Android 10. The Moto G Fast’s camera and display specs are similar to what we saw earlier this year in the latest Moto G Power device. On the back is a triple rear-camera setup with a 16MP wide lens, an 8MP ultra-wide lens with a 118° FOV and a 2MP macro lens. The front camera is an 8MP lens punched into the top corner of the G Fast’s 6.4" Max Vision (1560 x 720) display. Rounding out its features is a 4,000mAh battery that supports rapid charging.

Motorola’s other new offering is the next generation of the Moto E, which also manages to pack a lot of features into such a small price point. Topping its highlights are an octo-core Snapdragon 632 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a near-stock version of the latest Android OS. Its 6.2" IPS display uses the same Max Vision technology as the Moto G Fast, delivering a quality HD (1520 x 720) picture. On the back, you get 13MP and 2MP cameras, and up front is 5MP shooter. As you might expect, the Moto E’s 3,550mAh isn’t quite as robust as the Moto G Fast’s, but Motorola claims it will still give you days—not just hours—of uninterrupted performance. 

Thanks to its Moto line of smartphones, Motorola has established itself as one of the top midrange phone makers in the world, and these latest handsets appear to uphold that reputation. Neither the Moto G Fast nor the Moto E reinvent the pinwheel, but that’s not what these phones are for. The intention of the mid-tier Moto phones has always been to deliver performance that encroaches upon flagship territory at a dramatically lower price. We can’t say for certain how good these phones are but, based on their specs and Motorola’s stellar reputation in this market, there’s a good chance you’re looking at two of the next great budget phones.
