    Hi buddy!
    I just bought one too but i can't sim unlock it?
    How did you do that?
    Thank you in advance.
    I read a thread over in XDA on people using tmobile Sim cards.
    I don't have a link atm.

    When does anyone think this phone will be back at this price?

    Could anyone suggest a similar phone at a comparable price?
    I think I only paid $50 for my Moto E (2015) at Best Buy). You will probably have to wait until next year's black friday to get another deal like this. For the money, the Moto E is probably the best bang for the buck if you have a low budget. So if you need a phone, even at $50 you will like the Moto E. If you can afford it, the Moto G is even better but I think it's $120 but has better specs. The 2 GB of RAM would be nice.

    Verizon is currently selling the Verizon Moto e 2nd gen for $35.

    The base moto g 3rd gen has 8gb/1gb,same as the Moto e 2nd gen. The Moto g also comes in 16gb/2gb option but that probably costs more than 120.

    So for those who did buy the Moto e, how is it.

    I mean how does it perform for a $10 phone?

    Well it doesn't beat $600+ phones but...I would say it handles multi tasking nearly as well as my Turbo 2:

    And it doesn't kick ACTIVE apps out of memory like the 6S Plus. Of course, reloading apps on the iPhone is much quicker:

    AFAIK, there is no thermal throttling issues like I had on the Turbo 2 and G4 under heavy load for extended periods of time. In fact, when the Turbo 2 and G4 are under throttling, the Moto E 2nd gen actually is faster in performing tasks.

    In app, sometimes the Moto E 2nd gen will struggle a little bit...but not too bad. Scrolling sometimes isn't very smooth.


    Now the camera is not anywhere near any high priced device. In good lighting it is ok, but otherwise it is pretty meh.

    Battery life performance is quite excellent. In my usage, it gets better battery life than the Turbo 2, S6, and G4, and about the same battery life as my Note 5. Of course, everyone's usage is different, ymmv.

    The display is a bit grainy, for those of us used to QHD display, it is only qHD. But honestly not bad at all. And the color is pretty good, better than my Zf2 64/4.

    Overall for $10, it is really impressive. CPU wise, it is better than the 2nd gen Moto G and the same with the 3rd gen Moto G.

    I think that you will be pleasantly surprised that a low end Android isn't that far from a high end Android.

    I actually like the Moto E. The only issue is that it isn't picking up my WiFi. Anyone know what the issue might be? I don't have any issue with my Moto X but that has a 5 ghz band.
