Lenovo refreshes Moto range with Moto E and Moto G Play

Lenovo has announced Moto E and Moto G Play phones, bringing in impressive specifications at affordable prices.

The launch of the two new phones follow the success of the Moto G which launched earlier this year.

Why the Moto Z is the modular phone the LG G5 couldn't be

Flush with the success of Moto G, Lenovo has decided to bring in the two phones as affordable alternatives to existing value phones like the OnePlus 3, the ZTE Axon 7 or the upcoming Honor 8. As per Lenovo, not only will these phones dig less into your pocket, but will also bring in specification-sets matching those of premium smartphones.

The Moto E, which will cost just £99 or more for different variants, will release in September and will be available on contract from Tesco, Amazon, Argos and O2 as well as from various other resellers. The phone will feature a 5-inch HD display, a 2,800 mAh battery, 8-megapixel and 5-megapixel cameras, the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, a quad-core processor and a MicroSD card slot.

The display will be protected by a smudge-proof glass screen and the handset will be splash-proof as well to prevent damage in wet conditions.

The Moto G Play will be slightly more expensive at £129 but will be available from the middle of next month at Carphone Warehouse, O2, Vodafone, Amazon, Argos and other resellers. The phone will pack a Snapdragon 450 chip, Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, a 2,800 mAh battery and a splash-proof design.

Price-wise, it is slightly cheaper than the Vodafone Smart Ultra 7 but we aren't sure if it will be able to match up to the latter in terms of features and specifications.
