The reach of Motorola is extending, with new retailers adding their phones to their range as time goes by, this time with discount department store Big W adding the budget price Moto E to their range.

The phone is available in-stores as of the current catalogue, which begins tomorrow, Thursday 18th of September. The phone will sell for $174 in-store and presumably online, although there’s currently no listing for Motorola products on the Big W e-store.

The phone is obviously a fairly decent buy, with Motorola delivering software updates to their phone almost as quickly as Google can deliver them. It’s a decently specced phone for the price, which also includes dual-SIM card slots to allow you more freedom with your wireless needs.

  • 4.3″ qHD (540 x 960 pixels) screen
  • Dual Core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 Processor
  • 1GB RAM

  • 5MP Rear Camera (no front-facing camera)
  • Radios:

    • 3G: 850/900/1900/2100

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Lets hope the Moto 360 comes to Big W!!!

Realistically that’s something that’ll probably never happen.

Good option, good price, though not to get into a platform debate and looking purely on price, 520 can be had for $99 now, so at the price, the casual market might still go there.


Anyone who has used a Lumia 520 will return it toot-sweet. Garbage.

I don’t know man, Windows phones are pretty stable, low end or high end they do a pretty nice job. I’ve used a few and they’re pretty nice if you like the locked down environment.
