Motorola’s gen 2 Moto E is a heck of a great budget phone, though at its RRP of $249 it’s a stretch to call it ‘budget’, but, if you’re after a Moto E gen 2, then you can grab one today for a more budget friendly $132.
Thanks to a tip from eagle-eyed Ausdroid reader (and ex-writer) Jamie who noticed that Dick Smith Electronics is offering the phone for just $132 as an online exclusive for today only – that’s $66 off their normal price. The online exclusive means there’s no click and collect option, so it’ll be delivered, but seeing as the delivery fee to my door was $0 using their estimator that’s a great deal.
The Moto E gen 2 was initially left out of the list of devices receiving a Marshmallow update, but Motorola has recently confirmed the phone will receive its Android 6.0 update next year.
The Moto E gen 2 is a great phone, I really liked it when I reviewed it, it ran well, the camera was Ok and it felt great in the hand. If you’re in the market for a cheap phone, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better deal than this one for a while.
