Rogers Adds Moto E LTE To Boost Entry-Level Devices

The journey to Rogers was a long one for the new Motorola Moto E 4G LTE model that was revealed back in late February, but we are happy to announce it is now available on the Rogers network in an effort to bolster their entry-level phone offerings.  It will cost you nothing on a two-year contract or $149.99 to purchase it outright.  The device came in basic black to TELUS and Videotron back in March - TELUS is offering it as a prepaid model for $150 and over at Videotron, you can purchase it outright for $199.95 or $49.95 on their BASE plan of $31.95 or free if you go on their BASE $41.95 plan.  It is also available on Koodo, Chatr, Wind Mobile and MTS and will be launching at Rogers on July 15th.

The Moto E 4G LTE is a great entry-level device that features a 4.5-inch qHD IPS LCD display with a resolution of 960—540 pixels and 245 pixels-per-inch (PPI).  Powering the device is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and an Adreno 306 GPU for graphics.  This is quite an improvement over the 3G model that uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor also clocked at 1.2GHz and with an Adreno 302 GPU.  It packs 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, although Motorola has included a microSD card slot for up to 32GB of additional storage.  A 2390mAh battery provides enough power to get you through a full day.

The main camera uses a 5MP sensor with autofocus and an f/ 2.2 aperture.  Motorola also offers a decent software package for the camera with Quick Capture, Tap anywhere to capture, 4X digital zoom, slow motion video, burst mode, auto HDR, Panorama and Touch to focus.  The front-facing camera (FFC) is a VGA model for social media selfies at best.  It comes with the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, microUSB port for charging and data transfer, but no NFC.  It has a single micro SIM card slot, 3.5mm headphone jack, 2 microphones, a loudspeaker, GPS, two Accelerometers, Ambient light sensor, Proximity sensor and sensor hub.  It measures 129.9 x 66.8 x 5.2-12.3mm (based on the curve) and weighs in at 145 grams.  For the price range, it is a very good buy and you can check out why in our review.
