    Moto E 4G 2nd gen

    Just got one of these.

    it's lovely. A bit chunky (thick) but great battery life, and the thing that makes me most happy....

    it's a really tidy uncluttered Android install, with plenty of ram left to install what I WANT to install.

    No junk..no facebook or twitter that cant be removed.

    the Quad core is quick, the screens got lovely glass (very "slick" feel), and I've taken some nice photo's though the screen does make them look a tad overexposed, they're find on the PC. It has no flash at all, and I knew that. I have the flash off one my previous phones.

    It takes a 64gig micro SD card, so for a purchase price of under £80 on Amazon for an unlocked sim free phone and a few quid of an SD card I'm made up

    I got mine last year and does what I need it to; basically unused 98% of the time and occasionally I text or phone my parents. Camera is a bit poor compared to my work's phone (Samsung Galaxy S4 mini), and the flash was handy to use as a torch. However, the biggest thing is the battery life; around 12 days between charges!

    the thing I have done to improve battery most on this new Android install is to go into Location, then Scanning.. and turn off theWifi Scanning which is helping location services,...


    Wifi WAS my highest power drain, and not screen, OS etc

    which was odd../. but solved now
